For a dress like this, it's 100% guaranteed there will be a muslin, and I wouldn't be surprised if they're at the stage of fitting that.

Btw, GMA also report Meghan will have her hair and makeup team from Suits on hand the day of the wedding. Not sure how accurate this is as there have been reports about KP request hair sketches for her.

The reports of 'hair sketches' seems even more unlikely. She is far more likely to work with a stylist on her hair, then request sketches. Besides, until decisions are made on her gown, tiara and such, highly doubt hair will be planned. I find it more plausible she would trust a styling team she has worked with for years, over someone she had a sketch from. That said, just as likely will find style team in the UK to work with.

The aisle runner question....that is what the blue carpet is, it is an aisle runner. I don't see them bringing in a cheap one for the bride to walk on.

Honestly we will be getting four months of 'facts' leaked. Have to get used to taking them with a cruise ship load of salt.

I believe the dress fitting rumor. Watch bridal shows, and they say if a bride wants a dress that isn't 'off the rack' six months is a short time period. And that is just to have a current design, made to fit your body. To custom design and craft the gown, in the kind of quality and detail that goes into a royal gown, takes a lot of time. Royal brides are lucky in they will have a designer working around the clock. But likely process started right away on deciding on designer and style.

I really hope itís wrong hair and makeup for a tv show is very different to hair and makeup for a royal wedding ( or any wedding really)

Not necessarily. They do do wedding makeup on TV shows. Any good makeup artist have skills that make them versatile enough to take on different jobs even if they have a gig on a TV show. And really, I haven’t seen anything too special about royal wedding makeup, so I highly doubt anything they can’t handle will come up as they’ve shown to be able to handle different looks.

Certainly. While they may work on tv that isn't a bad thing. They have professional training and experience. And likely understand better then others, how to do makeup and hair that will shoot. And when the wedding will be broadcast for millions, and photos seen for years to come, that is important. If she doesn't use the suits team, Jessica likely had contacts to put Meghan in with for a good team to help her out.

I at least feel confident that Meghan has been in public eye enough to know not to rely on her personal makeup/hair skills on such an important day. Leave it to professionals.

Btw, I’m pretty sure most well known and successful makeup artists have worked with celebrity clients or something related to the entertainment industry at this point. Who do you suggest she use, if we are going to say no makeup artists who have worked on a show/movie/stage/red carpet and any other type related to entertainment industry that I’m missing? In fact, given that most people will be watching from a television, don’t we want someone that understands how makeup needs to work with lights and angles and how that will turn out on a screen?

Meghan will decide on an overall look for makeup and they will work with that.

Without too much fuss, could you (or someone) briefly say why there is animus between Paola and Mathilde?
So curious.

I can believe it. Not the whole team but if it is the same person who has taken care of her for a number of years... why not? And I doubt she the only one but I can see that team being there just in case. I would be the same way.

One of my good friends had her show dresser help her on her wedding day because no one knew her body like her. It is the little things.

I took the team to mean hair person nd makeup person, not the whole hair team and makeup team. Although, she might need multiple people considering it wonít be just her. The last wedding I was a bridesmaid at had two make up artist and the wedding wasnít even until 4 or 5 in the afternoon. We had to start at 9 to make sure we all finished on time although we did finish in the early afternoon.

But this is a British royal wedding, and not likely to be more then 2 people needing made up (Meghan and her maid of honor). The majority of the bridal party will be little girls. The girls will need their hair done, but it is possible they will have a second person come in and do the girls and possibly MOH.

The wedding is also likely to be early though. Unless they are going to start getting ready really early in the morning. We don’t know if she’ll actually only have one adult in the bridal party. I suspect it might be likely, but you never know. How do you choose between your really good friends? Her mom’s make up and hair will likely be done too by a professional.

They might also have two people scheduled to be there just in case to avoid some kind of emergency or whatever could go wrong.

Its not likely she will break too much with tradition and have more adults. But who knows.

11am wedding is most likely. Two people is pretty much a given. The person doing Meghan's hair will be busy with hair, tiara, veil and such on a big day. Another hairdresser to do the MOH and possibly MOB and the flower girls makes sense. No need to be up at 6am doing it all.

That is how I took it as well. Her wanting the person who has made her look great for x number of years seems like a no brainer to me. And again that person will hardly be the only one. Just the one focused on Meghan. There will be a tons of people on hand that day, as expected. It is all about making Meghan comfortable on what will be the happiest but also most stressful days of her life.

Having adult bridesmaids is actually not breaking with tradition. The Queen had all adult/teenager bridesmaids. So if she wanted that, I don’t see that as a problem. Or multiple child and multiple adults instead of all child. Not saying this would happen, just that it’s not a break from tradition.

And they would actually have to be up quite early for 11, especially if there will be photos taken prior to her leaving. I imagine her friends and mom will be there with her while she gets ready and they’d want to take pictures to remember. They are likely to air on the safe side and have one person devote to Meghan’s makeup and another for others just in case. Its not a day to rush. Of course, that’s just me speculating from a logistical standpoint. They probably won’t have all the kids there until later for obvious reasons.

It will be interesting to see if the bridemaids will be adults or children. I am leaning on kids. I would guess it will be Jessica and Benita's daughters and then Harry's side will supply the rest.

Since the queen married 70 years ago, the tradition in the last decades has been for child wedding parties. Though the queen had a few young adults, they were all young unmarried women.

Taking photos to 'remember' are usually done in the process. And as I said, I am sure there will be one person for Meghan and one to help with her MOH and likely MOA. I doubt she will have a gaggle of girls there, that are not in her wedding party, they will likely be at their hotels getting ready themselves. Normally its only the bridal party, and MOB sometimes, who they have stylists come for, not wedding guests.

Perhaps, or they may do even numbers. They both have kids in their lives. The assumptions that the wedding party will be heavy in royal children, are just that, assumptions.

This is the one time I look at Edward's wedding. Age wise Harry and Meghan are similar to Edward and Sophie. They are at an age where many of their friends have children, and Harry at least has godkids. They don't have to rely heavily simply on family members like Will and Kate.

You are right. They might be very even. Meghan has the three we know she is close to but there could be others we have no idea. I am sure they will create balance between them. It is both their day. They will figure it out.

I do wonder of Jessica will take over the MOH duties. I used to think maybe Lindsey but she will have a baby and it seems Jessica has been her right hand all this time. Less stress that way since this is what she does all the time.

My point is, someone had to break THAT tradition. And given its just the last generation, it doesnít seem to be much of a tradition anyways. And the press office did say itís going to reflect what they want. If she wants her besties there, there is nothing standing in the way or shocking with adult bridesmaids.

And a lot of American weddings do take photographs with everyone in the bridal room after they have all gotten ready as well as while getting ready. It wouldnít surprise me if people like Benita and Lindsey comes in to hang out with them and see if there is anything they can do to help or just talk to her to calm her nerves while sheís getting ready. Iíve seen that in wedding here, especially with a small bridal party (Iím not counting the kids here since they canít really help her get ready). If they all decide to pose for a few photos afterwards, especially with the kids, it could take a bit. 11 is quite early compared to other weddings. Itís all little things, but it all adds up in terms of time. Wouldnít be surprised if all the ladies start early.

Meghan has said sheís closest to Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman on the show, and they both have age appropriate children. However, I donít know how comfortable theyíd be with their kids being in this much spotlight, especially Rick since he doesnít post that many pictures of his son on social media either. They both have a lot of options, but itíll come down to if the parents are comfortable with level of attention and if the child is ok with walking down the aisle with hundreds of people watching (some gets shy).

There is one thing about hair and make-up, of all the royal weddings that I have seen and maybe I missed it, I have never seen the bride stand at the alter with all the cameras and the crew there filming her, lights action camera, that did not happen ever that I have seen. So for the bride to have hair and make-up done it should be done by professionals that are aware of the church and the venue where the wedding is taking place. This is not a Hollywood TV show being filmed with a crew of make-up artists standing around waiting for the next scene so they can touch up the bride.......this is a royal wedding of a young woman going into one of the oldest and most revered families in the world. It should be treated with dignity and respect as such.
