I expect to see Peonies (that's her favorite right?) ...and from the way it sounds we are going to being seeing spring colors. So I expect pale yellows/pinks/cream/green. Soft/romantic colors.

I for one love those types of colors at weddings so if they do that I will love it!

All the talk I heard was them keeping to the standard royal 'white' color scheme. I hope they do go for some lovely spring colors, like you suggested. Nothing too bright or distracting, better for Eugenie in the fall anyways.

Although Emily Andrews mentions things like cornflowers and fox gloves, beyond roses and peonies. That hints to some colors at least. Cornflowers are certainly blue. And foxglove comes in lovely shades as well. Paired with peony, the three flowers would certainly make beautiful spring bouquets.

When the news about the cake came out and that they wanted spring flavors ...it makes sense (to me anyway) the colors will match that theme. I absolutely LOVED Pippa's flowers...it would be neat to see a variation on that at H&M's wedding.

I'm hoping to see fall colors for Eugenie and that will suit her coloring very well too.

Yes, soft pastels, fresh and Springlike, is what I'm hoping for. Her arrangements are truly lovely. It can be a bit dark in St George's, but the TV lights should help with that.

Different people have different opinions on 'spring flowers'. Both Kate and Pippa were married in the spring, and predominately used white. Pippa had some pale pink in hers though.

I hope we don't see similar to Pippa's. Honestly I didn't find her flowers all that different then her sister's except for added pink. She even had the trees.


I hope you are right, and spring in Meghan's mind includes some yellows, and other colors.

If by gold they mean the state coach, I highly doubt we will see it.
The State Coach is one that can be automatically scratched from the list. But I'd love to see Meghan travel to the Chapel in the Glass Coach and she and Harry travel back in the 1902 State Landau. What I wouldn't want to see are those light Semi-State Landau's which we mainly see at Ascot.

Having assisted with two of my nieces' weddings, I can assure you that some things change and then change again. From the colour of wedding gowns that look ghastly enough to make you shudder when they are tried on, to the romantic vision of flowers that would actually look insipid and have no presence and don't present the image of your vision.

That is what wedding planners are for. To tell the bride what colour or shape does of does not flatter her, what colours will enhance her colouring and not clash with Harry's Uniform, etc. What flowers are best to create their dream wedding. The food is chosen, all that is left is the Reception and Windsor Castle can more than handle that.

Wedding planners are great in making suggestions. But it does lay with the couple in the end to make the choices usually. And the suggestions are based as you said 'on their dream'.

Even for a royal wedding, I doubt Meghan would be happy 'just letting Windsor castle' handle it. Yes the day time reception will likely be the queen's ideas. But the evening reception, the food choices and music, and such will reflect the couple more.

The nice thing for them compared to the Cambridges, they likely have a lot more freedom in how they handle the reception and such.

The BBC are reporting today [i'm afraid I didn't 'catch' their sources] that the Wedding Flowers will principally be composed of Peonies and Foxgloves, both much loved early Summer flowers here..and include branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses. This suggests that the colour spectrum will be white/cream/blush and/or various shades of Pink [which is the spectrum these flowers come in]
Personally I think Pink is unlikely, so I imagine a monochrome scheme based on whites/creams and blush is what we will see..

More controversially, and markedly LESS plausible [given the Grooms 'form'], the BBC and Newspapers suggest that the Stag 'do' will be a Yoga/Yurt/Crystal/Chakra Healing weekend- a FAR CRY from a 'Hooray Henry' piss up in Vegas.
This was attributed to the influence of 'California raised' Ms Markle, and 'the spin' on it was somewhat sinister.. [Changing 'OUR' Prince into some vacuous, Hipster 'laughing stock'].

I think that stag do article was aimed at April fools.

I love the ideas these flower combinations give. The florist's arrangements are gorgeous. It will no doubt look spectacular.

Here's the BBC News article:

Royal wedding: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose flowers - BBC News

"They will use flowers and plants that are in season and blooming naturally in May where possible, including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves"

They all sound lovely and the combination of tree branches too will look amazing!

It sounds quite nice!

The floral displays in St George's Chapel will be created using locally sourced foliage, much of which will be taken from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park. Where possible, Philippa will use flowers and plants that are in season in May.


LaRae

Philippa Craddock: The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun. The final designs will represent them as a couple, which I always aim to achieve in my work, with local sourcing, seasonality and sustainability being at the forefront."


Sounds like about everything else they have chosen. Local, sustainable, seasonal.

Why on earth would they choose Easter Sunday to announce what type of flowers they're having? Seems baffling to me. Could it not have waited until tomorrow?

As well as being Easter Sunday, today is the 100th birthday of the RAF which hasn't been acknowledged by the KP twitter despite their links to HM Armed Forces and the fact that both W&H flew during their military careers.

Finally, no mention of the traditional sprig of myrtle? Is this to be another tradition that's set aside?

As for the RAF birthday - it's probably because The Royal Family twitter already made an announcement and linked directly to the Queen's speech about it.

And the BBC made that announcement today - so I guess your question is to them? It sounds like you're blaming Harry/Meghan for the timing of when the BBC chose to publish the article?

The information released doesn't seem to have talked about the bouquet at all from what I've seen. Just the flowers that will decorate the chapel and hall. While the bouquet will definitely complement (and may even match) the flowers in general, talking about it at this point would be like talking about the details of the wedding dress. It seems pretty normal for royal weddings, from what I've seen, to release details about the flower decoration but to keep the bouquet components a secret.

I fully expect that there will be a sprig of myrtle.

I expect the sprig of myrtle too along with the wedding band being made of Welsh gold and the bouquet being placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Westminster Abbey after the wedding.

These are pretty standard traditions for British royal brides and I don't see Meghan changing them.

Didn't they release about the info on the wedding band a couple weeks ago? I can't remember if it was official or just all the sudden the royal pack was talking about.

I can't imagine she wouldn't have the spring of myrtle...that's been the tradition for decades now.

Kensington Palace is the source of information for primarily Cambridges, Henry and Meghan.

The Royal family twitter page mentioned the centenary first thing this morning with a link to the Queens message.

There is no reason to super-cede The Queen as she speaks for all.

It is most likely that this information was released today to get ahead of the press. Royal journalists, and reporters followed Phillipa Craddock's twitter page yesterday which means they already knew. Undoubtedly this announcement was already prepped and someone just pressed "send" this morning.

Just out of curiosity, what other traditions have been "set aside"? I certainly wouldn't consider the non fruitcake wedding cake setting aside tradition.
