Harry who? Carefree Chelsy Davy arrives at Alnwick Castle to rehearse maid of honour duties for tomorrow's society wedding... and her Royal ex is coming too:
Chelsy Davy arrives at Alnwick Castle Northumberland for Lady Melissa Percy wedding - Prince Harry arrives tomorrow with Cressida Bonas | Mail Online

I'm just guessing the posts about the Percy & Staubenzee wedding will be on this forum.

I can't wait to see the pictures from this.

(Surprised Prince Charles isn't a guest; he is supposed to be BFF with the Duchess).

Thank You for the information.
Are they supposed to broadcast church ceremony?
Interesting, as I don't remember live coverage of her eldest sister's wedding.

Its a local newspaper, so it will just be a running commentary of the comings and goings, plus pix.

EDIT
Take it back, they are running a video but I really will be surprised if they are allowed in the church during the service.

In a peplum dress, feathers and hair up.

The Northumberland Gazette is saying these are bridesmaids (you will love it or hate it)

Yes, indeed, Melissa is like coming from another romanticised epoch.
Even though, I like more her sister as a bride. Melissa is proud daughter of her father, she just can't stop being overwhelmed by emotions.

I like that it's such a community event. They try to make sure that everyone enjoy the wedding day. Instead of having everything so private that the people outside can't see anything.

i agree - do we know the provenance of this tiara. It is different than the one her sister wore on her wedding day. However the necklace is the same.

She would have looked better in a more delicate tiara.

Love the children's costumes, but the adult bridesmaids' dresses are not very attractive, imo.

Yeah, I think the tiara is too big for Melissa. Something smaller would have looked so much better. I also agree about the bridesmaids dresses. I don't like the color or the style.
