It’s finally here!!! The wedding of the year is tomorrow, Saturday May 19th!!? Tomorrow, Prince Harry will marry American actress Meghan Markle at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle and the ceremony will be followed by a private reception hosted by The Duke of Windsor. Two hundred lucky guests will be invited to Frogmore Castle for the wedding party and rumor has it the Spice Girls are on the guest list!?
The flower arrangements for the royal wedding will be designed by florist Philippa Craddock. As for the wedding cake, the couple has selected Claire Ptak, a pastry chef who was raised in California but now owns London-based bakery Violet Cakes, to bake their wedding cake. At their Windsor Castle reception, the couple will serve a lemon elderflower cake “that will incorporate the bright flavors of spring. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.” Ptak focuses on using seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes.?
If you were wondering about Meghan’s dress, you’re certainly not alone. Numerous bets were made on the couture house that will be designing her dress and right now, the odds are in favor of British fashion house Ralph & Russo since they are the ones who designed Meghan’s engagement dress.?The runner up is another British label, Erdem. I have admired Meghan’s style for a long time and her Suits character, Rachel Zane, is the epitome of power dressing. A women’s rights advocate herself, Meghan reflects that in the outfits she has chosen, especially after her relationship with Harry became public.
Now I do not know / care much about pastry and I am a novice gardener but there is one thing I know a thing or two about, and that is fashion. So to honor the moment, I thought I’d share with you some of Meghan’s best outfits over the years. Meghan has impeccable style but I’ve also included some of my favorite dresses her Suits character, Rachel Zane, has worn during the seven seasons she was a part of. And I’ll wake up really early tomorrow morning and watch the entire event!!! ?Happy Friday!!!
