My daughter-in-law also had her mother walk her down the aisle as her father is deceased. Before they reached the altar, both mother and daughter stopped and lit a remembrance candle for the bride's father. It was a way of including him in the ceremony.

I don't think Meghan will choose to have a relative walk her down the aisle. If its not her dad or her mom, I think she will opt to walk solo or even with Harry.

I've never heard of the mixing of the sand tradition before. Sounds interesting.

I don’t even know what mixing of the sand is! Never really gave it a thought (mum walking bride) until I was asked. Happy to say after lots of discussion, this summer my son will walk his sister down the aisle.

Unlikely, unless they are personal friends of the groom. I don't think Harry has any personal relationship with other European royal families.

DM just announced Meghan's Maid of Honor:

Or I should say Matron of Honor. Meghan was Mof H for Lindsay's wedding.

Its not been officially announced and I'll believe it when it comes from KP but it does seem very possible and even probable. I never believe anything that comes from the Fail.

Channel 7 here in Australia has announced its arrangements for the Royal wedding plus specials in the weeks leading up to it. So that's all four free to air tv stations on board for Oz! Hooray!

I read that Ms. Doria, Meghan's mama paid a portion of the cost for her wedding dress. I just bet she and her daddy split the cost between them.

Whatever it costs it will be worth it, I'm sure, as Meghan will look spectacular IMO! Not that I don't think that great deals are done with designers of Royal wedding gowns.

Honestly I don't see how her parents could split the cost between them...we are talking (typically) a gown well over 100,000.

While its a pretty safe bet, I don't expect DM to be the one to make an announcement. Meghan's friends have been good about not talking (her real ones). I wouldn't be believing any news until released by KP. I am surprised we didn't get the list when best man was announced.

Meghan had a high paying job and hasn't been financially dependent on her parents for years. I doubt very seriously if she would allow her mother to contribute one dollar to the cost of her wedding dress.

Seems Jessica is back in London for plans.
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/616658...g-dress-plans/

I doubt Doria or Tom are helping with the dress. Likely stems from the 'The middletons paid for Kate's dress, so Meghan's parents must be paying for hers'.


Rumors that Meghan will include part of Diana's dress

Its possible that Meghan will do as Diana and Kate did and have a small blue bow sewn into the waistband of her wedding gown. Diana also had a gold horseshoe with diamonds sewn into the dress by the label for good luck.

I don't see any part of Diana's actual dress being used though. But then again, what do I know. Both William and Harry inherited that wedding dress.

I can't imagine why she would want a piece of Diana's dress incorporated into hers...and I generally like sentimental gestures.

No way are they paying for the dress in fact I think Meghan will be paying for motherís dress and her fathers suit.

I believe they've said that only personal invites are going out - no political or foreign dignitaries are to be invited. The exception will probably be Prince Seeiso, who is a personal friend of Harry's. I'd still expect a representative from the Greek RF and the descendants of Prince Philip's sisters, as they're close(ish) family.

The suggestion seemed to be she would actually use part of Diana's dress

I could see continuing the blue ribbon, but anything beyond that is out there.

I know some brides incorporate part of their mother's dress in theirs, but this is out there. Especially considering royal wedding dresses, like Diana's, are preserved for display.

There is something sick about certain people and outlets waiting to jam Diana into Kate and Meghan 's lives any way they can. I think it's enough to give her name to a daughter or her ring to Kate; but it's weird to think William looked at Kate hours after she had a 3rd baby and said "honor my dead mother by wearing this dress". Or Meghan turning to Harry and saying "give me your moms wedding dress so I can rip a part out and sew it into mine".

On another note I recently ran across a headline that said Harry officially asked William to be best man.
