some of those kids outfits are ridiculous.
Quite often designers/Brides at British Aristocratic Weddings draw inspiration from a Portrait in the Family Collection, and dress the Brides attendants accordingly, this being the case for the Spencer/Lockwood wedding.

It may be a success, or it may not, but drawing upon Family History is a natural idea, when it is felt that 'lounge suits' for Pageboys will look out of place [and rather common] when adult males are in Morning dress. I've NEVER seen small boys in a Morning Coat [mercifully].

I do think it would be kinda cool if she went with a period type wedding ..just for something different.

I think that will depend on whether Harry himself wears a uniform or simply the standard morning suit.

As for the bridesmaids, I am expecting white with perhaps a colored sash if they are tiny.
If they are mainly adults, they might wear a pastel shade (I doubt they'd be in white).

Somehow, I am expecting the wedding party to be mostly children.

I strongly believe Harry will wear a uniform.

Why wouldn't Harry wear a uniform? The opions mainly differ on which one (imo the one he recently got an honorary position for).

He will wear the uniform of the highest ranked position he holds ,and like you said it will the No 1 uniform of the Captain General of the Royal Marines

so exactly like Phillip's here

But just with Harry's medals ,his KCVO and whatever honours he might get before hand

Yes there is. Just because you are being married in an old church, doesn't mean your attendants have to be dressed like they are from the 19th century. Being married in an old church doesn't require you to have a 'theme wedding'. It calls for a level of sophistication, and grandeur, but certainly not for some painting from the national gallery to be used as inspiration.

I don't know. I kind of like the idea that Harry and Meghan would do something completely different and perhaps have a medieval tinge to the wedding. St. George's Chapel is the ideal place setting for something like that.

I seriously doubt that they would do this but I like the idea.

New invitation rumors: Sting is on the guest list. One tabloid has the invitations going out the first week of March, and I would love to see if any of our predictions come true.

Me too..would love to see something period. She could pull off an Empire waist quite well.

I also like the idea of a old English country type wedding.

If you want completely different, modern would be the route. There has been no royal wedding with a real modern aesthetic to it.

Medieval suits the cathedral certainly, Edward and Sophie agree with you

Sophie's dress was inspired by medieval styles. And their attendants were dressed in an homage to the garter robes. Technically the garter robes only date to the very end of the middle ages, 15th century, but pretty close.


If Period, something more modern period like regency period would at least be a different feel.

Prince Charles would be my guess. Not saying Sting would be invited, doubt it, or even Harry knows him. But tabloids likely guessing, or hoping, some of Charles' more famous contacts will be invited.

Was rumored in 2004 that Charles was a fan of Sting, something Charles denied. But they have worked together at least on one project.

I agree. Harry looks very sharp in black uniform, too.

I do hope there are lots and lots of spring flowers.

Indeed, he looks handsome in black. They will look wonderful.

I agree on lots of flowers. And I hope they branch away from the 'all white' scheme of the past. Be great to have some added spring colors into the church.

Harry may choose to get married in his Blues and Royals uniform. The regiment he served in.

William had to wear his highest ceremonial uniform but Harry probably has more leeway
