MOH and Best man: Thomas Brooksbank and Princess Beatrice

flower girls: Isla Philips and Maude Windsor- 5/6 years old, good age pair.

I could also see either Etta Andrews or Eva Branson (Richard Branson's granddaughters) as younger flower girls. They will be 3 at the wedding. Perhaps there is another friend or family member with a little girl of similar age to be paired with one of them. Nice to see a Brooksbank side included. Or even use Mia. Zara and Peter were both in Sarah's bridal party.

No, I meant pair George with Maud and James with Savannah.
Boy-Girl.

That's how they did it at Andrew's wedding, paired William with Laura Fellowes.

Otherwise, it wouldn't look nice , having George and James walking together.
I think the Boy-Girl pairings are better than 2 girls together, or two page boys.

There are two approaches pair a boy and girl with similar aged partner like Andrew and Sarah’s wedding or have a pair of older boys with a mix of girls like Charles and Diana, William and Kate.

You have a handful of different age girls between the older Louise, Margarita, slightly younger Savannah and Isla and then the 3 to 5 year old crowd of Mia, Maud, Charlotte. There are probably some Kent and Gloucester grandkids that you can throw into the potential pool plus non royal godchildren are always an option.

Yes, that's what I meant!
At Prince Andrew's wedding they had four pairs, Boy-Girl, and it looked nice.

I really hope they go with that first option, because I like it better.
But of course, Eugenie and Jack are not likely to consult me.

I think it would be nice to have Beatrice acting in the role of Pippa for her sisters wedding; the only adult attendant and leading the really young kids.

I think they should be more imaginative with wedding venues. I'm fed up with Westminster Abbey and St George's Chapel.

I think the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace would be an excellent choice for a change.

It would certainly make for a small, intimate wedding. The guest list would be tiny since there is only seating for 100 people.

I'm sure the Chapel Royal would be a splendid venue. Only problem is that most likely, using that chapel, the guest list would have to be severely limited or people would be packed in like sardines.

Westminster and St George's are used often for very practical reasons-

1. size
2. proximity to a royal palace for a reception venue

The chapel royal is quite small. St George's is small for Harry's wedding and much larger then the chapel royal is. I would have loved for him to marry at the cathedral near highgrove and use highgrove for the reception, but not shocked they didn't.

Eugenie on the other hand has grown up at Windsor. Before she went to Marlborough, she attended St George's school, Windsor which supplies the choir to the chapel. Its her home church.

There isn't a descent size church near either Balmoral or Sandringham to use.

Zara had approx 400 guests so not exactly a small wedding, although about half what Meghan and Harry could invite to theirs at St. George's. It wasn't at Balmoral though--it was at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh with the reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

400 is quite small for a royal wedding. Even smaller then her brother's which was private as well. Edward and Charles (second) were considered small and were closer to 600. Eugenie's will be around that size most likely.

Actually Peter had about 300 guests, so fewer than his sister. It will be interesting to see what Eugenie & Jack's is like.

There might be some tv coverage of the arrivals and departures. That’s what Zara and Mike had. Even Pippa’s wedding there was video of her arrival and departure.

That's all we'll get from Eugenie's wedding...just the coming/going. Maybe if they do pics on the steps outside St George's we will see that.

I think that this wedding will have a most eclectic guest list. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Roxburghes, Heather Kerzner, Kate Moss, the Bransons, Bernie Ecclestone and Paddy McNally, Tracy Emin, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Colin Montgomerie, Lynn Wyatt, and Oprah.

Let's not forget George Clooney. It seems, from what I've read here lately, that Jack has business dealings with him.

The way I see it, the wedding wouldn't be televised mainly because Eugenie isn't actually a working member of the British royal family and is therefore a private citizen. People, also, just aren't that interested in the York girls to warrant airing the wedding.

I may be wrong and it'll be televised but I seriously doubt it will be.
