She deserves a medal for dealing with that kind of crazy. No wonder Harry is so protective. She judged just for breathing. As said.... enjoy your cake Meghan.

I hope she does her rumored speech too. I mean if you going to be attacked anyways might as well do you.

Obviously there is going to be a Royal Wedding Cake. On what type of fine china will this cake be served? Also, at each royal wedding reception are the cake plates used from the same china service over the decades?

They should have the cake that they want, and they will enjoy. Not something just because it's a tradition. Neither of them may like fruit cake they have to eat as well .

I really think some of us should lighten up and realise a lot of posts are decidedly tongue in cheek, mischievous or just a little sarcie.

It's the differences that are making this thread just as they are making the wedding. There are both UK and US traditions at play here and sometimes they clash a bit.

But the overriding truth is that this is a private wedding and Harry and Meghan are sharing the details with us because they want to, not because they have to. Not so very long ago the notion of a Groom's cake was a novelty, now it just is.

There are the rules of courtesy and conduct which are just plain good manners and those should resonate both sides of the Atlantic. In this Private Wedding, there is only one unbreakable rule, there will be no Bridal Bouquet Toss.

I just find it petty that anyone would begrudge the bride and groom (since I don't if it was a joint decision or not) the cake they want at THEIR wedding. And, yeah, yeah, they're royals, they represent the country. It's still petty.

She's going to presumably have a long and happy marriage to Harry (especially if she doesn't lurk online to read comments - since I doubt anyone she meets will wag a disapproving finger over her cake choice) and will represent the country over and over for the rest of her life. On her special day, people can sit back and let her eat the cake she wants.

Oh all they single royal and commoner women will be so disappointed. But there will still be a garter toss right

If I ever got married, the groom better have very pretty taste or there will wont be a traditional wedding cake. I am so anti wedding cake, or cake of any kind. I would want one of those cake tables, filled with cheese cake of every kind.

Never been to a wedding with groom's cake before. One wedding cake (or cupcakes), a dessert table, and often candy bar seems the norm here. I did cater waiting for weddings in some of my college days. The wedding cake almost never even got cut, nobody seems to eat it. Other then the top tier the couple cut. Cupcakes, or mostly fake cake became more popular.

Depends on the Megan and Harry. After all, unlike the bouquet, its job is done after the wedding!

The bouquet's job is certainly done after the ceremony. No laying it on the tomb. Besides a lot of brides have a second bouquet, a small 'toss' bouquet, so they don't destroy their proper bridal one, and can keep it.

I cant imagine the queen's face if Harry went under Meghan's skirts for the garter Maybe that would wait until the evening party

I think that is beyond tacky when they do the garter thing.

For the Moderating team, and others..

I have noticed one of my posts regarding the cake for Prince Harry's Wedding, has been edited, without my knowledge or consent. I absolutely understand a post being 'taken down' if deemed unacceptable by the moderators, but editing seems entirely different and 'new' ? Perhaps you could clarify this for me ?
If my words can be edited by people I don't know, without my KNOWLEDGE, I shall have to re-consider my membership of this Forum. Thank you for your help, and time. Best Regards, wyevale.

Preferably done in private behind closed doors.

The public option seems to require everybody to be half cut and vulgar.

Ahhh but Philip isn't eligible to catch it. Its only single bachelors that fight for the garter to place it on the woman that catches the bouqet.

I agree its a silly thing to do and probably dates back when brides actually did wait for their wedding night to uncover anything above their ankles. Some silly rituals take a long time to die though.

I do think its possible that Meghan's bouquet will travel to Westminster Abbey and placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Kate's bouquet was placed there two days after the wedding. As much as Harry is involved with the military, I would really be surprised if they didn't follow this tradition.

After seeking out more information, Sophie's bouquet was also placed on the grave two days after their wedding. So being married at St. George's Chapel doesn't necessarily mean the tradition won't be upheld.

Yeah I think Meghan's bouquet will also be placed on the grave.
