More than one billion people were expected to watch the royal wedding, including wedding planners in Berks County.

Many were hoping the excitement spelled an economic boost for their businesses.

Nancy Vokorokos, president of Reading Rentals., believes the royal wedding will set trends.

"It's exciting to see richness come to the industry and elegance," said Nancy. "And the return to proper etiquette and that simple but elegant look."

Nancy says she has affordable options for brides wanting to add royal flare to their wedding, without the royal price tag.

"We did some research and on some very nice disposables, the price actually costs more, than if you would actually just rent the china and the stemware and silverware."

In West Reading, at Lovely Events & Occasions, Lovely Events & Occasions., owner and wedding planner, Heather Pasko, is also keeping a close eye on all the happenings across the pond.

She's expecting to see women wearing new hair accessories like the Fascinator. It's a small flower with feathers attached.

"I'm just looking for the colors, the designers, the flowers, just the inspiration. The wedding planners, the industry, is looking for inspiration for the new trends," said Pasko.

Even the royal cake has become a point of fascination. Award-winning baker, Sharon Thompson, owner of The Well Dressed Cake in West Reading, indicated that even the royal cake can set trends.

"It's about the design," said Sharon. "It's all about color. It's going to be white on white? Or are we talking about, you know, subtle color. That's going to be the big trend."
