The invitations for the big day were sent out in mid-March. The invitations were created by Barnard and Westwood. American ink was used on English card, and the invitations were printed in gold and black, then burnishes to bring out the shine, and gilded around the edge.

Around 600 guests were invited to the service at St. George's Chapel and to the lunchtime reception at St. George's Hall, which is being give by The Queen.

The couple have asked 1200 members of the public to be on the grounds of Windsor for the celebration. The Lord Lieutenant offices will choose the guests which are said will come from a broad range of backgrounds and age groups.

Meghan and Harry have invited 200 guests to an evening reception which will be hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.

The Dean of Windsor will conduct the service and the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate as the couple make their vows.

Following the ceremony, the couple will undertake a carriage procession from St. George's Chapel through the town of Windsor returning to Windsor Castle. 

Following the couple's arrival at Windsor Castle, the official wedding photos will be taken by Alexi Lubomirski. Lubomirski also took Meghan and Harry's engagement photos at Frogmore House. 

Meghan and Harry have chosen a lemon elderflower cake. It will be made by Claire Ptak of Voilet Bakery. The couple has chosen to decorate with branches of beech, birch, and hornbeam. White garden roses, peonies, and foxglove will be sourced from the garden and park land of Crown Estate and Windsor Park. Wedding and floral designer Philippa Craddock will be in charge of the arrangements. 

Those heading to Windsor for the big day can enjoy food stalls, large screens showing live footage of the wedding and procession, viewing area along the whole procession route, bunting and ceremonial banners, and live entertainment from local groups. Windsor is offering a 6,000 space pre-booked car parking area, and rail operators will be offering extra trains and extended hours. 140 Royal Borough Ambassadors have volunteered to help steward the event and assist visitors through the day.  

Even with all excitement (and press releases) there is still so much we don't know about the wedding day. Who will Meghan be wearing (I'm guessing Ralph & Russo), and will she wear a tiara? Will Meghan and Harry go British and have children in their wedding party or go American with adult bridesmaids and groomsmen?

We are still unsure of who will walk Meghan down the aisle of St. George's Chapel. With the press reporting that she is closer to her mother, and describing her father as a 'recluse' it leads you to believe her mother may be by her side in some capacity. Will it be Meghan's mom, dad, or both?

When William and Kate wed in 2011, they were bestowed the titles of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (among others). What titles will the Queen give Harry and Meghan? Odds on favorites are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The wedding will be broadcast on American television, including on NBC and PBS. Will you be watching?
