To inspire you, here is one example of Royal Wedding cocktail called The Drambuie English Rose Cocktail, created in honor of Kate Middleton and named for the key ingredient, rosewater. Yours can be completely different, this is just a taste of what can be done.
The featured liqueur is of course Drambuie, which as you may know a historical Scottish liqueur named the legendary Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Prince William Mountbatten-Windsor (yes, that is his surname/last name) and Kate Middleton met and were educated at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland, the same country where Drambuie was formed for the royals several centuries ago.

In a Champagne flute, add:
1 Sugar Cube
3 drops Orange Bitters

4 oz. chilled Blanc de Noirs Champagne
3 drops Rosewater
Garnish with a thinly-sliced strawberry fanned and floated on top.
-The color is a beautiful pale rose.
