I believe that is what Jacknch meant when he said there will be tiaras: tiaras for the brides (plural because there are two sisters).

As gorgeous as it might be to see the full sparkle of a white tie wedding, we all know that is not the way it is done in GB. Apart from the economic situation, can you imagine the outcry when one of them had a white tie wedding? It would mean that they'd try to upstage William and Kate's wedding, and that would be a big no-no. It's no going to happen.

The reason the BRF don't do white tie weddings is not because they are afraid to bling up. IMO, it is because that is just not the way English weddings are done. They are pretty much always morning or afternoon events, followed by the wedding breakfast. It is not traditional for them to be evening events.

So do I.

I absolutely hated those schmaltzy love songs at the Swedish weddings!

I think the British way is much classier.

Yes, I meant that tiara's would be worn (hopefully anyway) by Beatrice and Eugenie at their weddings rather than it being a tiara event itself.

Putting aside some of the music choices, I really liked the Swedish weddings and the way they were done - guest arrivals, ceremony, carriage ride, boat rides, arrival at the reception, balcony appearances, the reception itself and the cutting of the cake - all televised. BUT, it was hard going to watch it all over several hours (and hard-going for some of the guests too I should imagine).

Traditionally in Britain, we had a morning wedding, an afternoon reception and the going away on honeymoon late afternoon kind of thing. But more often these days, the wedding is held in the afternoon and the reception held late afternoon and throughout the evening.

Beatrice and Eugenie will probably do the same.

Heu... the weddings of the Infanta Doña Elena, the Infanta Doña Cristina, the Duke of Brabant, Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, the Prince of Orange, Prince Laurent of Belgium, Prince Friso of the Netherlands, the Prince of Asturias, the Prince of Monaco and the Hereditary Grand-Duke of Luxembourg all had exactly the same dresscode as was observed for the wedding of the Duke of Cambridge.

I wonder if either of the York girls will wear the tiaria their mother did at her wedding? It would be nice to see it again.

I would imagine so. And I look forward to it, it is a lovely tiara.

Yes and it was unusual in that The Queen bought it for her and it was not part of the royal collection. A few authors have made quite a bit of that.

The nice part about Sarah's tiara is that it has become a family tiara and most likely will be handed down to wear for both Bea and Eugenie's daughters should they have any. I would imagine that if the Spencer tiara had somehow became solely the property of Diana rather than had gone to her brother, Kate would have worn the Spencer tiara at her wedding. Camilla wore the family tiara at her first wedding. Its that kind of a family thing.

I would expect a very small, private wedding if either of the girls marry. It could seem insensitive to the public if it was a more extravagant affair, particularly as neither of the girls are working royals.

I think it would be unfair to force them to have a very small wedding, or guilt them into doing it. It don't think it should be the state occasion of W & C, but they should be able to have whatever private ceremony that their family chooses to pay for personally.

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie both deserve the wedding they want.

The "public" should not demand or play any part in their decision.

The tabloid media should not stir up the "public" with their bullying of the York family.

I expect it will be something similar to Peter and Zara's weddings. Church wedding and then a great party afterwards with plenty of family and friends. Hope that they will wear Sarah's beautiful tiara and that it remains a York family piece for many years.

I completely, 100% agree! With every word.

They are born Royal princesses and grand-daughters of the monarch. If the girls want to pull out the stops and their parents can afford to do so, they have a right to that.

You needn't worry. The Yorks seem to be a tenacious bunch. If either of their daughters wants a lavish wedding, then by land or sea(yacht), they will have a wedding that will rival Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia's decadent display.

Neither woman seems to be as highfalutin as her parents, though. So I think the glamour addicts on this site will have to settle for a Phillips-esque wedding, with a one-off designer gown. The real interest should come from reports of the wedding reception. I bet they'll have some zany entertainment.

Not sure if it was said or not but the tiara she wore wasa loaner from a friend soi doubt it will be a York family item for years to come.

Not so Duke, I'm afraid. The wedding tiara was selected by Sarah herself and purchased from Garrards, the then 'royal jewellers,' by the Queen.

This is my understanding too. I would imagine both of the girls will wear the family tiara for their weddings and also be available for Sarah's granddaughters should they wish to wear it.

I don’t think they’ll wear the same wedding tiara. Even non-HRHs ,Autumn and Zara, Serena Linley and Sarah Chatto, used different wedding tiaras. I think Beatrice will wear her mother’s tiara, as she will probably inherit it. Eugenie will probably get a one-day loan tiara from The Queen. Eugenie seems a little edgy so I could see her going for a bandeau. If the Strathmore Rose Tiara isn’t in too fragile condition, she could wear it in a bandeau style like the QEQM did. She looks a lot like a young QEQM, too.

I think their wedding venues will be different, too. I predict Beatrice will go for a larger, high-profile wedding at either Westminster Abbey or York Minster. I think Eugenie will either choose St. George’s Chapel with a reception at Royal Lodge, or an intimate wedding at Chapels Royal with a much larger reception at Buckingham Palace.
