Royal Wedding Madness: The Cost, the Dress, and the Drama


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding is this weekend, and there are SO many stories out there about who will be in it (is Princess Charlotte a bridesmaid?), who will walk Markle down the aisle (will her dad Thomas be in attendance?) and of course who she’ll be wearing (we’re putting on bets on this one designing duo). On the latest episode of The Woman Getting Married Podcast, we break down everything we know so far*, and also share how much experts predict each part of the wedding will cost.

Several royal wedding vendors we discuss are:

Botswana lodge where Harry took Meghan for her birthday: Mapula Lodge
Wedding ring designer: Cleave and Company
Predicted wedding dress designers: Ralph & Russo, Inbal Dror, Roland Mouret, and Erdem Moralioglu
Ceremony venue: St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle
Ceremony musicians: Sheku Kanneh-Mason will be joined by the England-based Christian gospel band Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir
Reception venue: Frogmore House
Wedding cake: Claire Ptak of Violet Bakery
Floral designer: Philippa Craddock

Tune in to watch the royal wedding at noon in the U.K., and in the U.S. 7:00 a.m. EST or 4:00 a.m. PST.

*This episode was recorded on May 13, so some updates have not been included, such as those surrounding Meghan Markle’s dad. As of today he is NOT expected to be in attendance at the royal wedding.
