Marrying Like a Royal: Could You Really Do It?
There are many aspects of the royal way of life that would really appeal to most young men and women. After all, these individuals are awarded great fame, riches, and recognitions for simply being born to their parents. However, there are some downsides to living with a royal title. As many people in the world watch on, hoping to see the engagement photos of Prince Harry and his girlfriend, Meghan Markle, we take a moment to consider just what aspects of their wedding they will have no control over. If you are planning your own wedding, you may know just how wonderful it is to have 100% say over each and every detail. That is something that these two young lovers will not be able to say about their own royal affair.
The Groom’s Apparel The bride will not have the choice of dressing her groom in beachy apparel, or even a white- or black tuxedo. It is a Tradition of the royal family for the men to be wed in their military uniforms. That also means that Megan should opt for a color palette that will compliment Harry’s blue, red and gold uniform. Bridesmaids in pink and purple might just clash with Harry and his groomsmen.
The Guest List Of course, the bride and groom will be free to invite their friends from school, military, and work, but there will be several invitees who they will be forced to include on the final list, whether they’d like to see them attend or not. This is a royal affair after all, and that means that there will be royals aplenty in attendance.
The Groom’s Ring If Harry follows in the footsteps of many of the men who came before him, this young royal will not be choosing a wedding band. The royal men rarely wear them. Prince William, for example, does not wear the traditional band of gold. His finger remains bare, despite the vows he spoke for his beautiful bride.
The Privacy Level While you may want to shout from the rooftops just how excited you are to wed the love of your life, it may be a little less appealing to do so if millions are looking on ready to critique your each and every decision.
What do you think? Could you really wed like a royal?
