You know Meghan might stay at Frogmore on the eve of her wedding and leave from there to drive to St. George's. Just a thought.

I'll bet they will try to get hotel blocks set aside for their guests.

I think thatíd depend on how long the drive to church is planned. Frogmore is pretty close to St. Georgeís Chapel. She could always stay at a hotel.

I don't see there being enough privacy IMO at a hotel for a royal bride getting ready. Nor the security, for a carriage ride to start at the hotel. When Autumn and Peter married, Autumn stayed at the palace, and Peter stayed with Edward. Edward stayed at Bagshot and Sophie at royal lodge.

Didn’t Sophie leave from the Royal Lodge?

I assume they set them up in someone more private. At least the family and close friends. Most the hotels are already booked though I am some rooms have been blocked off with various hotels knowing they would be needed. How does that work? I get many guest are likely from area so maybe rooms not needed but with Meghan that is not really the case.

I agree, unless the entire hotel is rented out by the bride and her family & friends... and is staffed by trustworthy people, like the Goring for the Middletons.

Not sure about royal weddings specifically, but for event planning in general, they usually would sign an agreement with hotel(s) to reserve a certain number of rooms. And then guests can call to reserve rooms for themselves.

Meghan may arrive at St George in a carriage. I also would like to see the couple depart from the church or reception on the royal barge Gloriana or a similar smaller barge. The barge decked out with flowers and the flags have their dual cypher and dual coat of arms.

That was my thought. It would just be a larger scale with a royal wedding. And also likely somewhere else more secure and private like Frogmore to host those who they would like to keep from the public.

But other brides, like did Catherine, arrive in cars. That seems more likely.

I confess I have no sense of the geography. How would that make sense? On what body of water? Especially if the reception is at the castle. I don't think they will go for many bells-and-whistles tbh. I'm thinking it will be very simple.

They will still have a carriage ride through Windsor even if both the ceremony and reception are on castle ground.

How many people can actually stay over at Frogmore? With the bride being foreign and most of her guests being foreign and other out of town guests, they might as well just reserve an entire hotel for this wedding. I canít see Meghan getting ready at Bagshot or Royal Lodge. Frogmore can be an option, but they might just have to take a longer route if thatís the case.

Yeah I think the car is how she will arrive but the carriage will be how they exit as a married couple. Isn't that how it usually happens?

The Thames River runs through Windsor.

That's what I've seen. But it was being suggested that they leave by water and I was wondering how that would work. I agree, though. It's been said (or reported) that they will do a carriage drive through the town of Windsor a la Edward and Sophie, but that it would be a much longer carriage ride than they had.

Maybe the guests will mostly stay in London and they will come to Windsor in motor coaches.

Unless those coaches are pretty darn nice, I have always thought (where I've seen it done) that it looked clunky.
Very inelegant.

That just sound like a logistical nightmare given the number of people. There will be enough things that would go not according to the exact plan on that day as it is, that would just be terrible planning. On top of that, if they have a late morning wedding and guests have to change for the party, how would that work for the guests? And then you have some that will only attend the ceremony, and possibly some that will only attend the party. While Windsor isnít London, they do have hotels that can accommodate if planned accordingly.

I won't be surprised if they have reserved an entire hotel. The press was going on about how the rooms sold out within minutes of the announcement it was in Windsor but I would bet that at least one of those hotels was the palace booking them all.
