A few hours from the most famous wedding this month, it is evident that the style choices of Meghan Markle will be of inspiration and reference for all the Princess look-a-like marriages in the coming months.
Let’s talk about the location chosen for the marriage between Prince Harry of Wales and the future Duchess of Sussex. It will be more intimate than that chosen by Kate and William: it will take place in the Saint George Chapel, in Windsor Castle.
Secondly, the capacity of the place. With a capacity of about 800 people compared to 2000 of Westminster Abbey, where Prince William of Wales and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton were married, Windsor is the place where the Queen and her husband spend the most of their time. It is not strange to think that Harry, very dear to the Queen, prefers not to force his grandmother to travel and travel.
By the way, Six hundred are invited to the wedding on May 19, but only 200 will have the privilege to share the evening wedding reception in the residence of Frogmore House.
Thirdly: what about the wedding dress? It will probably be by Ralph & Russo and will cost about 350 thousand euros – in 2011 it seemed exorbitant the cost of the dress signed Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen worn by Kate Middleton (and paid by her parents) 250 thousand euro-. The list of possible designers includes other big names like Oscar de la Renta, Elie Saab, Erdem and Roland Mouret, we also can not rule out that the Royal Family “suggests” the bride and groom to prefer a British designer.
While the classic English fruitcake, the traditional long-lasting fruit dessert, is banned. Why traditional? Tradition requests that the spouses celebrate with a fruit cake and keep in the freezer the highest floor for the baptism of the first child, eaten on the occasion of the firstborn baptism.
Meghan Markle has chosen the food stylist Claire Ptak, owner of Violet Bakery, a small London pastry shop that will prepare a lemon and elder flower cake for £ 50,000.
Last but not least, the future Duchess of Sussex has chosen peonies and roses for her bouquet: the latter will come directly from the White Garden, the Kensington Palace garden dedicated to the late Princess Diana.
While for the wedding ring, the royal jewelers Wartski have prepared a ring made of Welsh gold, a tradition initiated by the Queen Mother in 1923 and will be the same shade of the engagement ring.
We will wait for which trends will be such and which will become new must-haves for future brides of the era Post Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
