Hmm, as far as I am aware, it doesn't really matter what faith, if any Meghan follows or if Harry does or doesn't attend church. Neither affects their actual wedding itself.

Because a wedding would be in a church most likely etc etc. There is not a hidden agenda in most cases

Indeed. There is no obligation to get married in the church. In their case, there is a strong expectation. As it is important to the queen, and Harry is the grandson of the current head of the church, and the son and brother of the future heads, it would raise a lot of questions if they would decide not to get married in the CoE... However, I expect that Harry and Meghan will do as is expected, unless Meghan secretly holds strong oppossite views (but that seems highly unlikely, indifference is easier to overcome).

It was never intended for large occasions like a modern wedding.
That is such a pretty church. It's a shame it's so small.

Royal weddings generally take place in churches that are "Royal Peculier".

A Royal Peculiar (or Royal Peculier) is a Church of England parish or church exempt from the jurisdiction of the diocese in which it lies and subject to the direct jurisdiction of the monarch. So closing a church down for a number of days in preparation is never an issue.

Examples inc Westminster Abbey, St Georges and the Chapel Royal

Only wedding in recent yrs not taking place in one of these was Zara Philips.

I would love it if Harry got married in Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Different everything will be hard. It is still a wedding and the grooms are brothers, so same vows, same family, groom in uniform and bride in wedding gown

So, yes, I agree the couple should do what fits them but I don't see the need to specifically try to avoid any resemblance with William and Catherine's wedding. If there is a song they like that was already used in the 2011 wedding, they should go ahead and use it as well. If they prefer different songs, that is fine too. Same with other possible overlap or resemblances.

I just wondered if there was any chance. I hope she doesn't just get to wear the same one Kate wore. I think it would be kind of insulting to have her do anything just like Kate did. Like, that was Kate's wedding, and Meghan's wedding should be totally different. Different everything, dress, tiara, all jewels different. I think nothing, at least respecting the bride's person, should be the same.
The Strathmore Rose is a beautiful piece but no one has seen it in decades. It might be in the BRF vaults either intact or dismantled.

Yes I agree that it would be impossible to avoid all similarities unless they opt something far from the BRF norm such as a wedding in a circus tent in the middle of a grassy field with the couple in matching plaid jumpsuits with only their pets as their attendants.

Obviously there are traditions that carry through every wedding ceremony. That's fine and understandable. I really meant.... I know I said "different everything" but what I truly meant was "different everything" unique to the bride. I mean, I think some things like her dress, her tiara, or whatever jewelry if not a tiara, these are things that can and should be individualized. But that's just my feeling about it. It's not science.

There's been a lot of discussion about whether Harry will get a bank holiday for his wedding, like William did.
Many consider it unlikely, because of the cost.

What I was wondering is whether Harry could get married on a regular bank holiday that is already scheduled?
For example, the Spring Bank Holiday will be on Monday, May 28.

Would that be feasible?

Sounds like a good idea. There is no way they will get a holiday for Harry’s wedding. I think a Saturday wedding is most likely

Why would they need a holiday? I just assumed they'd get married on a Saturday. Most weddings are on Saturdays anyway.

IMO it is far more likely they simply marry on a weekend, then choosing a bank holiday to wed on. It will remove the need for any debate on a holiday, and the costs that go with it. And will open up more weekends then would be open if they had to choose a bank holiday.

Also it works better for me, which I know will be foremost on their minds. :-) LOL!

Oh, the May Bank Holiday in 2018 works perfectly for those of us in the US! Same day as our Memorial Day holiday. I'd be down with not taking a day off of work to watch another royal wedding.

I'm in the US too! I was thinking a Saturday wedding would work as well. I can get up super early and then sleep all day Sunday! God will forgive me for missing church! LOL!

But yes Memorial Day works too. Again, they should be planning their wedding date around us. LOL!

Can Meghan get married in a Church with the Queen present she is divorced or doesn't it matter anymore? I'm not going to hold my breath todays rumour is they will live together for a year before getting engaged. Visiting each other is a lot different then living together full time.

Its been discussed all over this thread, Yes.

The church of England changed its rules in 2002 allowing divorcees to remarry in the church. WA has been asked and confirmed the couple can marry there.

Charles was a whole other matter. He was marrying the woman who he was cheating with during his first marriage (grounds to have a priest refuse to marry them) and he is the future head of the church. The queen didn't attend his civil wedding, but she did attend his church blessing by the archbishop of Canterbury.

The future king, as well as two of his siblings are divorced, and he and Anne are remarried. No reason to believe the royal family would not accept her as a divorcee.
