Interesting that they have chosen a Friday. Wonder if the children will take the day off school as there are a number of school age children in her family. Maybe it's a "no kids" wedding...

So prior to the I.G. ...I can imagine what it must of taken to get everyone's calendars in sync.

Molly I can't imagine it's a big deal to pull the kids out of school for one day, if needed.

Parents get fined for taking kids out of school in the UK. I know it's not a big deal for one day, I am just surprised that it's not on a weekend. Oh well, it's their choice and there is obviously a reason for it.

Maybe it is an evening wedding; wasn’t Edward & Sophie’s at 5:00pm?

My guess is trying to get everyone's diaries to line up. Plus her wedding is going to be a 'private' wedding, not likely to be televised so no real concern about traffic etc.

I know G&C go to a private school right? Not sure about Louise/James etc.

Louise and James also go to private school. James attends the school at St George's in Windsor Castle and Louise attended the same school until this year when she changed. Not sure where she goes now but I would imagine it is also a private school. I imagine Savannah and Isla also attend private school but no idea where.

I suspected that week! Sandwiched right between the Queen returning from Balmoral and before Harry & Meghan head off to Sidney. Now everyone can attend.

Besides, that is when the fall foliage is usually at its peak!


It should make for some wonderful outdoor photos.

I'm talking about the wedding itself. Not arrivals/departures.

Even to attend a wedding? Of course they get fined if they do so for no reason but attending a wedding seems an appropriate reason to miss one day of school if related close enough. However, this might be a cultural issue as weekend weddings are less common in the Netherlands (as the civil wedding is out of office hours in that case, so more expensive), so Friday is the most popular day to get married as it is followed by a weekend. Seems like Saturday weddings are the norm in the UK.

There certainly maybe some lenience in this way, but usually unless parents get permission for their child to be out of school, they will be fined per child. It has a lot to do with attendance and that being linked to rewards in the school year. A Friday wedding is quite un-usual in my opinion. I'm getting married on a Saturday.

I guess that they were looking for a Saturday as well but apparently that didn't work out for them given their guest list, so they landed on a Friday...

And of course parents should ask permission to the school for their child to attend a wedding but I would hope that that is mostly a formality and not something that schools would consider not granting (unless the family clearly abuses that option).

As I said, the day of the week depends a lot on the country, so thanks for confirming that Saturday is the norm in the UK. In Eastern Europe the Sunday seems quite common and 'back home' the Friday is the most common (at least among my family and friends, their might be segments of society with other customs).

I believe that children will participate in the bridal party. Also, will not some of the guests that are invited to attend the wedding bring their children?

Only if their children are invited...

It seems that many British upper class weddings only have the bridal party children attend and not other children; is that a correct impression? If so, I cannot imagine that those children wouldn't get a day off to be a flower girl or page boy at a wedding.

Getting a day off for your parent's cousin (or your second cousin) is probably a bit too much to ask if not in the wedding party.
