Brides are a strange, fickle and — above all — crazy folk. Give ‘em an idea and watch them hike their trains up and run it right into the ground. And there was no wedding more influential this year — sorry Kate and Charlene — than that of someone you may or may not have heard of, Catherine Middleton Windsor, The Duchess of Cambridge? Turns out that fairy tale affair has gotten some brides all riled up.

Kate Middleton Inspires Brides to Saddle Up

According to a study by Brides magazine — it’s called science – there has been a 200% increase in horse and carriage rental inquiries. Just inquiries, though; I mean, why buy the horse when you can get the weave for free, am I right?

Brides‘ incredibly important research also reveals that 52% of brides are more likely to wear a veil thanks to Kate’s now iconic Alexander McQueen wedding gown and that there has been a 25% increase in sales of red aisle runners.

I guess it’s nice to dream big but what good will that horse and carriage do you when you’re mom’s dipped into the hip flask a little early and crashes — spanx up — into your gorgeous 1-800-FLOWERS arrangement on your inevitably-soiled red aisle runner? #justsayin’ [Fashionista]
