Royal Wedding: 5 tasks Harry and Meghan still have to do

Last updated: 30th May 2022

If you’re married or have your wedding date booked, you’ll have a good idea of exactly how much is involved in preparing for a wedding. – the UK’s no. 1 wedding planning app, -recently found that millennial couples are getting married later in life, which means paying the bill themselves and taking on more wedding planning responsibilities!

However, Harry and Meghan are not your average millennial couple. The groom and bride-to-be won’t be enlisting the help of friends to make bunting on a Friday night, and Harry won’t be playing supermarket sweep to get the best drink deals for the wedding party to enjoy.

But with great power comes great responsibility, and while they have all the help in the world, Harry and Meghan are under serious pressure to make sure that they throw the wedding of the decade.

With less than one month to go until the Royal Wedding of 2018, let’s take a look at what the soon-to-be newlyweds should be up to… harry and meghan wedding planning

1. Attend the final dress fitting

Meghan should have a date with the dress sometime this week.

She’ll wear the underwear and shoes she’s picked out for the big day to ensure that her bespoke wedding gown fits perfectly in every way and looks seamless from all angles.

We predict that Meghan will opt for something sleek, classic and romantic. Stay tuned… the dress will soon be revealed! Eeek!

2. Write the wedding speech

Most grooms won’t have started their wedding speech by the ‘one month to go’ point. When you have a Stag Do to survive, it simply doesn’t make sense to start preparing a speech before you’re in the clear.

However, we’re sure Harry has now started to pull together and formalise ideas for his wedding speech. Possibly with the help of William and his father, seeing as they’ve both already survived their royal wedding toasts.

Don’t worry Harry. You’re only expecting around 600 guests at the private evening reception!

Harry, here are some wedding speech writing tips!

3. Confirm final details with wedding suppliers

This is where Royal status comes in handy. Finalising those on-the-day wedding coordination details and confirming final details with wedding suppliers is something Meghan and Harry won’t have to worry about first hand.

As well as confirming organisational details such as arrival times and setup locations, the Royal Wedding Planner will need to confirm must-have shots with the photographer and videographer and send the venue and caterer the final guest headcount.

4. Finalise guest list and seating plan

If we were invited to attend the royal wedding, we wouldn’t need chasing for an RSVP. But because of Meghan and Harry’s royally impressive guest list, they will need to conduct a final chase of any ‘maybe’ RSVPs to ensure that all attendees are accounted for.

The couple will then need to finalise the seating plan with their wedding planner.

5. Pack for their honeymoon

Once all the organising is over, it’s time to pack for the expected £120,000 honeymoon – one of the more enjoyable ‘last minute’ wedding prep tasks.

Don’t forget to roll your Hawaiian shirts Harry – saves on space and reduces ironing.
