It’s not often we mere mortals get the chance to live vicariously through a televised royal wedding, so it’s no wonder why everyone’s talking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s 2018 royal wedding! What’s the dress going to look like? Where’s the wedding going to be held? Will this be a giant royal affair? These are just a few sample questions you might want to get used to hearing over and over for the next 6 months.
While most details are still under wraps, it goes without saying that with a wedding of this royal magnitude, price just won’t be an issue – which begs the question: where exactly is this grandiose wedding going to take place, and how does the Prince of Wales and his bride-to-be intend to celebrate this joyous occasion?
According to Elle Magazine UK, “Harry and Meghan recently confirmed that their wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on a date in May 2018.” You can check out the full article here.
Sailing back to 2011, William and Kate’s royal grand affair was held in one of the UK’s most well-known and reputable churches, Westminster Abbey. Meghan and Harry’s wedding, however, is likely to be a little more low key. While it’s a gorgeous venue filled with royal history, it’s also far more understated than Westminster Abbey. While St. George’s Chapel can hold 800 people, Westminster can hold up to 2,000.
Whether or not a giant, royal wedding is your cup of tea, everyone can agree that the appropriate venue is one of the most important aspects of planning a wedding. The venue is a place that needs to set the tone for the entire affair, and from that specific element, all other wedding planning details and decisions flow.
So you’re not exactly royalty…ok, you’re not even close to royalty. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a grand affair with all your family and friends.
