I have to agree with St. George's Chapel at Windsor.

First for the ease of security for everyone. There's just been too much happening of late in London to even contemplate how to enforce very strict security. A smaller wedding at a more contained venue just seem so much wiser to me.

Secondly, I don't remember exactly when the renovations of BP is supposed to start but even if renovations are just being done wing by wing, it makes sense to not have a big wedding party there. We'll miss out on the balcony scene but I think the carriage ride through Windsor would be so much more romantic.

Third, I think Harry and Meghan will choose to have their wedding on a much more scaled down event than William's was. This couple has been remarkably private throughout their relationship and a smaller, more intimate wedding just seems to me to be more fitting for this couple.

Perhaps we're jumping the gun here as they've not even announced an engagement yet but royal weddings are such wonderful affairs and something we all do look forward to.

There's so many events in London (Such as Trooping) that they can't be overly concerned with security, so I am still hoping for the Abbey.

St. George is a nice venue but too low-key; Harry is popular and I think people will want to celebrate his wedding.

But perhaps he'll surprise everyone, like Zara did, and choose an unexpected venue.

Reportedly (from the DM) government sources have said there will be no bank holiday for Harry’s wedding which means something at the Abbey is very unlikely.

It was reported earlier this year that after Harry's statement, Downing Street requested if there is to be a royal wedding that it'd take place on a weekend day.

Why does there have to be a bank holiday?
Plenty of people get married at the Abbey without that.

I think it has to do with street closures and such for a royal wedding due to security?

Logically thinking Harry s wedding would be at a smaller venue .

But there's also the other fact that Harry's a very popular member of the royal family today and people would want to celebrate his wedding . So should wait and watch how it will go .
But I wish there is a Buckingham Balcony appearance after the wedding !

This makes sense to me. With a full scale wedding at Westminster Abbey and the processions to and from and Abbey would mean closing streets and beefed up security which would probably interrupt and cause problems for people on a average workday.

As it has been announced that Harry's wedding, if occurring, wouldn't result in a bank holiday which means business would be suspended for a day, an Abbey wedding would have to happen on a weekend day or happen elsewhere. I sincerely think it will be elsewhere. There are just too many reasons why central London just wouldn't be a good idea.

Since he is ever further from the Throne,and has no prospect of ever becoming King, it is logical that the Prince should marry with less pomp than his brother [who will one day be King].There will be no official ministerial or Government attendance, no Heads of State, nor Ambassadorial guests.
I think St George's Chapel, Windsor is a likely, and suitable venue..Televised yes, but Public holiday, no...

I don't know how likely it is, but I would like to see some member of the BRF get married at the Chapel Royal at St. James Palace. I know it's small, but it looks lovely in pictures and it has a history of royal weddings in earlier eras (Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, for example). They could do a short procession along the Mall to Buckingham and a balcony appearance with minimal road closures.

I don't if it would be at a smaller venue or just a smaller scale. Smaller scale definitely, but that doesn't mean it can't take place the Abbey. We do also have to remember that this is likely the last televised royal wedding until George. So for those that really love royal weddings, this would it.

That's actually why I don't want it to be at the Abby. I really enjoy royal weddings and the gorgeous churches of various sizes where they can take place. I thought it was a real treat to see St. George's at Windsor used in that way, it was awesome to see Charles and Diana use St. Paul's in that fashion, we've had that spectacular view of a full Abby several times over now, and this is the last chance for a while to possibly see St. James' chapel at its best with all the finery and pageantry of a royal wedding.

Do we know what the capacity limit for Chapel Royal is?

Well, Will & Kate weren't interested in inviting heads of state whom they weren't familiar with. Reportedly, the Queen told them to tear up the 'guest list' provided by the government/royal courtiers and write up their own list with the people they preferred to invite to their wedding. Once again, they did not invite too many heads of state they didn't know. Even the Obamas were left off. Although, the Queen made it up to President Obama and Michelle Obama in May 2011 by inviting them to a state dinner. Sometime later, Barack and Michelle met William and Kate, and they are friends now. Of course, Harry is even more friendly with the Obamas, who are sure to be invited to his wedding.

We'll have to wait and see how the details will be handled. And of course, it's the engagement that we're waiting to hear announced first.

A Civil Wedding is required in U.K. As for a church wedding in COE ,not sure. They can marry in Scotland like Princess Anne did when she remarried. . Also, Meghan's first marriage was NOT a Christian union. They had a secular wedding with elements of some Jewish traditions. Former husband ethnically Jewish ,but not known as religious,which is typical of Hollywood movers and shakers. I think she would want a Christian wedding this time.

I'm guessing Harry's wedding will be even more personal than Williams was..in the sense there will be less 'have to' invites going out.

I am thinking he will marry in the same place as William though.

Did Will and Kate have a civil wedding?
I don't get it-Harry will have to have two weddings-civil and the church wedding?

I would not be surprised if Prince Harry prefers a private wedding. A destination wedding,Scotland Highlands, would be fun fun fun.

I think it would be cool to see him do that...but I don't think it likely at all for them to marry in another country.

No Harry will not have to have 2 weddings. Kate and William married in the CoE, no civil wedding. Harry will do the same.

I'd say it is either or: so either a civil wedding or a church wedding (which also includes the civil component of signing the marriage certificate). The last option FAR more likely than the first. Meghan's first wedding being only civil IMO is irrelevant; that marriage is recognized both by the state and the church as a marriage (and therefore her current status as divorced).
