Royalty or not, every bride treated like princess

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - It may be across the pond, but the royal wedding is catching the attention of people everywhere.

"It is something big. You've got a prince who is marrying, and this girl will become a princess as soon as the wedding is over," said wedding videographer Russell Smith,

"It's really cool because a lot of the brides are thinking about some things [in the royal wedding.]. They're thinking about it, because it's a week away from their wedding, and they might be doing some things that are out there like [the royal couple,]" said Oak Crest Mansion Inn Executive Chef Patrick Heim.

At Pass Christian's Oak Crest Mansion Inn, wedding bells are always in the air.  So, organizers can relate to the excitement.

"We've had people here since seven this morning for a six o clock wedding, so I'm sure they're already setting up for that wedding and doing all sorts of meticulous preparation from the florist and the dressmaker," said Heim. "I'm sure it's right up to the wire."

However, with the peak wedding season approaching, these workers are mostly busy making sure their brides feel like a princess on their special day, even if she won't be inheriting a crown.

"It could start from months and months out making sure all the little T's are crossed, I's are dotted. So, anything the bride wants," said Heim. "It's a fuss but every bride deserves their day.  If you're in this business you got to love it."

"Even here, the bride today, we consider her royalty. We're here in South Mississippi, and she's got her day and we're going to make it good for her," said Smith.

Both Smith and Heim agreed that if the royal couple wanted a last minute change of plans, that they would be more than happy to host the couple's wedding at their venue.
