What I think would be even more romantic is to have a candlelight ceremony. My bridesmaids carried lit candles in their bouquets and the congregation all had lit candles as I made my entrance on my father's arm.

This would really, really highlight the beauty of a 13th century chapel.

Not likely. A bit out dated of a trend, unless throwing petals.

Not since the 80's. At least not in royal weddings (and haven't seen it very much in regular, except if flower girl throwing petals). If you look at the Wessex wedding, the Cambridge wedding and any wedding on the continent of royals with young bridesmaids, they carry smaller bouquets. For Kate's, the very little girls seemed to have a little tie, so the bouquets hung from them if they weren't holding on, so they didn't drop them.

Sounds lovely in such an old cathedral especially

But I am guessing you had adult bridesmaids??? I don't think having little ones like Charlotte carrying candles would be that safe.

Another thing is that perhaps candles would be ruled out as a fire hazard in a historic building. I suppose the little ones could have electronic candles in their bouquets but, to be honest, I've never see that done.

As time passes, I'm looking more and more forward to the actual wedding day. Its really not that far off now. 4 months.

I’d love to see something like Pippa had for the flowers in the church:

I can't remember how far ahead they will say if George and Charlotte will be in the wedding party.

Was announced in a tweet in February from Clarence house, before the wedding.

As for Pippa's flowers, they remind me too much of her sister's. Even the trees. I hope Meghan goes in a different direction.

Yes in Dec prior to the Wedding....hmmm so no announcement for Harry and Meghan's yet.


I think they are in the same color but they looked different to me, from Kate's.

No, it was announced on Valentine's day. If you look at the original date of the article it says February 14, 2011 (and the tweets were said to be that morning). The article was updated in December, in 2017. So four months out, not shocking we haven't seen any real announcement.

Here is the tweet
https://twitter.com/clarencehouse/st...131392?lang=en

Honestly I see little difference between Pippa and Kate's, not just color. Meghan and Kate are going to have enough 'comparisons' without her flowers being a near copy.

I like Pippa's, and they do remind me of Catherine's trees. Not surprising that the two sisters might have similar tastes. I really liked Catherine's trees. Quite unique.

Adore Madeleine's color scheme. I always find I like whatever Madeleine chooses. Her taste and mine must coincide.

Sofia's flowers were lovely. There was a nice mass of color as a backdrop.

Mary's flowers were so regal! The effect was dramatic. Really beautiful imo.

Poor Mathilde!

Usually people pick soft and warm color for church wedding but both Victoria's and Mary's are very regal! Love Madeleine's color scheme too.

While I love the flower's color of Sofia, I think it's too much, some green is needed to balance everything.

Can they choose the color of rug? Because the rug of C&C's and Wessexs' wedding are both in blue, and I'm not sure can they change it. If they can't they probably have to choose something goes well with the blue rug (white, purple? or even yellow?).

Ah no, I doubt HM will not be on board with recarpeting the entire church. Blue, strangely, is a very popular colour in CofE Churches. No, that's kind of like "no, you cant move the pulpit!". Point to remember, the wedding is on Saturday and Church is Sunday so nothing too drastic is going to happen.

Blue looks ok great with almost anything:

The carpet is not permanent. If you look at pictures of the chapel, you will find pictures where the floors are bare with no carpet. I guess it is possible that they could have a different carpet laid down for the wedding.

But blue is considered a neutral by many. The color works with most. Unless there is another carpet of another color lying around, I would say they will use blue. I don't see them having new one made simply for the wedding.

Oh thanks, I ask this because I saw V&D used blue carpet while her parents used red so I am curious can British follow this. But I think the carpet is removable and only used for wedding or other ceremony but not for services?
(I'm not a Catholic and I don't know so much about church so I may be wrong)

The CoE isn't a Catholic Church any longer so they would do things differently anyway...but if it is the custom in England to use blue as a neutral perhaps even Catholic Churches do that. Here the 'neutral' in Churches (when I was a kid) was red carpet!

Then again, they may very well roll out the carpet for weddings etc. seeing that it seems it's not there all the time. It probably stops the bride from galloping up the aisle pulling even a chapel train and veil. Without the friction from carpet, they'll have a hard time finding a piece of music short enough for the Processional.

You can see in this how Mathilde nearly trips while walking down the aisle and up the stairs. It was not just the flower arrangement. The wedding dress itself with the winter coat was also too heavy and I suppose Mathilde was also very nervous.

Seeing the images from her wedding, I can't help longing for the day when Mathilde will wear Queen …lisabeth's art deco diamond tiara again, although I fear that will never happen given her allegedly bad relationship with Queen Paola, who is rumored to have left the tiara to her daughter, Princess Astrid of Belgium.

It's officially 120 days, 5 hours 18 minutes, 20 seconds and counting...
