Rules of a Royal Wedding

Posted in Inspiration on Jan 20th, 2019


As the royal wedding day rapidly approaches the excitement and glitz of the event begin to take over many people's imaginations. The reality of the event is staggering, Queen Elizabeth II sent out 1900 invitations for Prince William and Kate Middleton's special day. While most folks know the work and logistics required for any wedding can be staggering, a royal wedding demands more security, strict instructions for guests, and an entire laundry list of rules for the wedding party.

15. The Bride's Wedding Dress

Meghan Markle won't have the freedom to choose any designer gown she fancies as she did in 2011 when she married Trevor Engelson. There are a few requirements that her royal wedding gown must meet before it's acceptable to Queen Elizabeth II. The gown must be white. Bride's have been following this rule since Queen Victoria married Prince Albert and started the fad. The dress is traditionally made from lace and must be appropriate for the wedding venue. Also, Queen Elizabeth II will keep the dress in her private apartment to ensure the dress is kept secret until the ceremony.
