From tiaras to bouquets: Wedding rules the royal brides must follow

Royal nuptials bring in huge ratings, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge raking in 17.6 million views in 2011. Therefore, it is very important there are no mishaps on the big day.

Royal weddings require permission from Her Majesty:

The Royal Marriages Act 1772 requires members of the royal family to obtain permission from The Queen to marry.

Royal brides require wedding dress approval:

Unlike normal weddings, where hardly anyone gets to see the wedding dress before the big day, when it comes to royal weddings, the Queen must see the dress before the bride walks down the aisle.

The Queen must give her nod of approval, otherwise, the bride is not allowed to wear the dress.

In order to avoid major disappointment, it is likely she analyses the dress designs long before work even takes place on the gown.

Although, the brides and their seamstresses will most probably be aware of the royal protocol surrounding royal wedding dresses.

Both Meghan and Kate’s dresses were conservatively long-sleeved and appropriate for the church services in which they took place.

The wedding dress rules include no short hemlines, no low necklines, and no shoulders on display.

However, Meghan Markle raised some eyebrows when she departed from royal protocol with her second wedding gown.

After the wedding, she stepped out in a gorgeous Stella McCartney halterneck gown baring her shoulders and arms, in what some saw as a risqué decision.


They must have British designers:

Out of respect for the British monarchy, it is expected that royal brides will choose a British designer to create their dress.

David and Elizabeth Emanuel designed Diana’s 1980s-style wedding dress, and Sarah Burton for Justin Alexander created Kate Middleton’s lace gown.

Meghan Markle also wore a simplistic dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller.

Tiara rules:

The Queen has her own personal jewellery collection and keeps it in a 150-foot long basement vault.

When a royal wedding is approaching, she invites royal brides to browse the beautiful, expensive tiaras.

Royal wedding rings are always the same:

It is an age-old tradition that royal brides should have their wedding rings made from Welsh gold.

This has been the case for nearly 200 years, as it is the rarest and most expensive type of gold in the world.

Royal brides have similar bouquets:

Royal bouquets must include sprigs of myrtle as a sign of royal etiquette, which is a Victorian legacy still practised in the 21st century.

The tradition began in 1858 when Queen Victoria’s daughter included the flower, and the tradition has lasted.

Royal brides leave their bouquets on a tomb:

Royal brides are not allowed to throw their bouquets after their wedding.

Instead, a tradition started by The Queen Mother, royal brides leave their bouquets on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior to pay their respects.

Royal couples must release official photographs:

All royal weddings have formal portraits taken with their closest family to keep in the historic royal records.

Even Princess Beatrice who married in a private ceremony had to release official pictures to the press.
