Hot! We hear a Major Wedding is Set to Take Place Soon

In a few weeks, a major wedding is set to take place that will surely set trends for generations to come. The wedding, of course, is that of Canadian actress Rachel Meghan Markle (yep Meghan is actually her middle name) and Prince Harry. The service is set to take place in just a few weeks on May 19th, 2018.

The ceremony, with an estimated price tag of $45 million (fortunately the government is picking up this tab), most of which is to cover the security expense of protecting the rarefied group of world leaders and other notables scheduled to attend the lavish ceremony, is already garnering lots of attention. It is easy to figure out why–people are just really interested in a seeing a royal wedding. In fact, according to Bridebook.co.uk, a major wedding planning website, two billion people are expected to watch the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tie the knot at Westminster Abbey.

With such anticipation about the wedding, details are plenty. Some of which as you would expect isn’t too surprising for starters planning in this scale costs lots of money. Costs from the wedding dress to the food budget, to the flowers and invites are massive.

Let’s start with the wedding dress, according to British wedding industry insiders, it can cost as much as $560,000 for a custom one of a kind piece. What about the food, you ask? Bridebook reports, the cuisine bill will have a $407,175 price tag. Wedding day flowers are expected to cost $155,000. How about the invites? A 600 person invite list, will set the royal family $10,000 according to Sarah Sadler, a client coordinator with New York printer Bella Figura. The high expenses are in details.

Now wealth affords the 1%, the luxury of spending huge sums of money on printed letter cards, for the rest of us that just isn’t a reality. For these moments, retailers like Basic Invite, are there to offer quality cards, wedding invitation ideas, and rustic wedding invitation templates (if that’s your thing) at a much affordable rate. The site is one of the few to offer customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. And, that’s always a good thing.

As for the wedding, even if we can’t afford it is still exciting to see what money can buy you. So, on in a few weeks, this editor will watch the entire celebration taking place and who knows might even create specialty cocktails for the evening.
