A royal wedding gets everyone talking. Stories start appearing everywhere. You can find out pretty much anything you want about the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle. But should it be this way? My answer is yes and no.

Yes – After all, it is a royal wedding. Something the whole country should be able to celebrate. But the details should be limited.

  • Why do we need to know all the details before the day?
  • What does it matter how Ms Meghan Markle is having her hair?
  • Do we really need to know who is walking her down the aisle?
  • Must we know beforehand what type the cake will be and how it’ll be decorated?

How come we need to know everything before it happens? Some things should be kept in private until the day. We all love royal weddings but wouldn’t it be nicer if we didn’t know every last detail?

Let’s think of the Royal Wedding another way

Ok, it is a royal wedding so coverage is inevitable. But imagine it was your wedding.

You want to have some element of surprise when your husband-to-be sees you for the first time walking down that aisle (or your sneak peek). Your guests should be able to see something they haven’t seen on social media or in the news. These are the people you love. You are paying these people (well at least most of them) to attend your wedding. Why spend all your budget if there is no unknown?

Traditions and Firsts

I am a true believer in having at least one ‘first’ at your wedding. After all, you don’t want to have an average wedding, you want to have your dream. It is unlikely that your dream is identical to a wedding you have attended or seen on social media.

Changing little things to adding personal touches, all help have a wedding unique to you. Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle have decided instead of traditional wedding gifts, any donations for several good causes are made instead and have invited members of the public to attend the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the arrivals of the Bride and Groom, and their wedding guests, at the chapel and to watch the carriage procession as it departs from the castle.

Let your personalities shine. Fill the day (or weekend) with experiences everyone will remember for all the right reasons. It doesn’t matter if you want an elegant, black tie wedding, a fun-packed carnival-style wedding or a garden party with afternoon tea. Make it your wedding.
