With royal wedding imminent, more couples go big or go home

Not to state the obvious or anything, but it seems like more couples are going to want to emulate the grandiose nature of a Will and Kate affair in the months and years ahead.

"A return to more traditional wedding elements seems to be the biggest influence the dashing royal couple are responsible for," the Toronto Sun reports. "Couples-to-be, who are tying the knot this spring, are incorporating richly royal features into their wedding such as elaborately designed invitations, over the top lighting, lush floral displays and classic gowns and suits."

We've seen this happening from a distance already, what with the surge in popularity of sapphire rings (not to mention cheap, imitation plastic ones) and the modern, simple sensibility of Kate Middleton's garb.

That being said, we're sure that most nearlyweds aren't operating on a royal budget - but that doesn't mean they can't offer up lavish wedding favors for a reasonable price.

Mini wedding brownie favor pops dressed as the bride and groom will look at least as dapper as any guest in the room and be the richest thing on anyone's tongue (save for, of course, the wedding cake).
