Which she should do. Just being herself is enough to annoy people. She doesn't have to actually do anything and honestly there is no need. Just do work the other senior royals do. That is all that is required. She may be a tad bit more outspoken once she is more comfortable but not by much and it won't be anything controversial. Status quo.

Let's get back on topic please. There is no need to talk about snubbing anyone as the matter will be decided and discussed between the people involved.

If Meghan's mother walks Meghan down the aisle, would it be incorrect for Doria to hold a small nosegay of flowers?

Anything is possible, but usually not. The only weddings I have seen the mother give away the bride, she usually wears a boutanier like the father of the bride would. Perhaps one similar to the bouquet her daughter holds.

But I am still not convinced Meghan is ditching tradition.

According to the Fail Meghan is in LA, presumably getting in touch with girlfriends about pre-wedding plans. She has been seen at Vera Wang's store in Rodeo Drive. A Wang Wedding gown? Surely not?

Vera Wang also has bridesmaid dresses.

It is possible that her wedding gown can be a collaboration between a US designer and a British designer.

And considering it's the media they could be making it up too.

The bridal lunch seems to be suggested for the day before the wedding. An option instead of a rehersal dinner. Not now in LA.

Vera wang not only does bridesmaid dresses but flower girl. Picking an US designer to do the bridal party would be a good compromise.

Reading the 'Meghan breaking tradition again: having maid of honor instead of chief bridesmaid'. They love to stir up issues don't they, by trying to make her this American who just wont follow tradition. There is no difference, it is simply a matter of title. They mean the same thing, an adult lead bridesmaid. The only thing different would be if she chose a married one, but that would be matron of honor not maid.

I read that as they planning on some event before the wedding. I am sure she will so that is not some scoop by the Daily Fail. I doubt Meghan is in LA since she has an event on Tuesday.

Doubt a nosegay. The trend now is to have both parents walk the bride down the aisle, and that siblings walk the groom down the aisle. It can also be mixed up differently, depends on the family, like the mother of the groom and a sister can walk the groom down the aisle.

Will be interesting to see if these kind of trends will be incorporated into the wedding ceremony.

I have never heard of a groom being walked down by siblings Siblings if involved, are usually bridal/grooms party.

If the groom walks down the aisle (sometimes they come in with the priest at the front), he usually walks his mother to her seat. I have seen the groom walk both mothers to their seats if the bride is only escorted by her dad.

That's okay. You don't have to have heard of it. I have, and have been at weddings as recently as last year that did so. For me it is a current trend. With Meghan I could see her mother and father walking her down the aisle, and with Harry, William and Charles walking him down the aisle. Not saying they will do such but that is a current trend (for some).

Must be a local and current thing. Must say I watch an embarrassingly large amount of wedding shows (sometimes only thing on tv when home) and never seen or heard.

As for Harry I doubt he will be walked down the aisle at all. And certainly not by his father. I highly suspect he will do as many grooms do, and as his brother did, and come out with some of the ministers, at the front, with his best man (presumably William). Charles will have arrived with Camilla will arrive just before the queen.

As stated, that's okay. Not necessary for you to be aware of it. Wedding shows, and those like them, are 'constructed' to 'play' to specific audiences with set expectations. Trends are not a necessary component, especially if too far afield from expectations, as you demonstrate.

Weddings are, in general these days (in my experience), very much constructed to the individual tastes of the couple. I am wondering how much of that will seep into the heavily traditionalized wedding of a royal ceremony with so many public pressures to see the wedding as expected. How free will Harry and Meghan actually be to design their own wedding. Will be interesting to see.

Just a random musing. Not meant to disquiet the established norms. Not meant to precipitate an argument at all, in fact. Just a musing. As stated.

P.S. As for it 'must be a local thing', one of the weddings was in France, between a French bride and an American groom. Seems to be pretty wide-spread to me, but that is just me, and maybe just in my circle. Maybe.

Just because you haven't heard of it doesn't mean it doesn't/can't exist... You seem surprised when you learn new things around here (and express that in a not-so-nice-tone, unfortunately) while you can also look at it in a positive way. Even when you are a walking encyclopedia (and I mean that in a positive way, for some people do indeed know an awful lot about a wide range of topics), there are always new things to learn.

Yeah I tend to agree. I have seen plenty of weddings with someone other than the father walking the bride down the aisle. It isn't nearly as uncommon as some want to make it.

I feel the biggest deciding factor for Tom Sr will be his health and how comfortable Meghan is with it. In this day she might be wanting a stronger support system and while she loves her father, he has shown he is not the best in the spotlight and this will be a global event.

I still think the dress will from a British designer. I just don't see it any other way.

I really disliked those green strapless dresses that Autumn Phillips had.

She has a lot of different designs. Those green ones are likely to be what Autumn Phillips preferred.

The BRF doesn't seem to go for trendy so I kind of doubt they'll embrace this new and apparently, at least so far, limited in popularity idea. (The group of siblings escorting part, not the parents- the parents I've seen for both bride & groom) It hasn't spread to the Midwest US as far that I know. One of my nieces is planning her wedding for next fall and is a bridesmaid in 5 friends' weddings. I'll have to ask her about this. She is always on trend.

I think we'll see mostly traditional for M & H's wedding. And if Meghan has adult attendants I don't consider that to be against tradition. Many brides in the royal family have had adult attendants.
