1,000 times more than the average wedding

Well, recently, leading wedding planning app, Bridebook.co.uk, has revealed just what May 19 will have in store for the nation.

After thorough analysis of over 170,000 weddings and a review of more than 70,000 industry suppliers, the app has crunched some serious numbers and devised the ultimate report on the .

Royal big day will cost over 1,000 times more than the average wedding costing nearly $34,000 making it one of the largest events in history.

Who pays?

One of the biggest things everybody’s discussing is who will pay for the wedding. Kensington Palace will reportedly cover the cost, an expense traditionally taken on by the bride’s family.

Markle will probably pay for the dress herself as Kate Middleton did.

As the Daily Mail reports the Royal bride will walk down the aisle in a hand-stitched gown by British designers Ralph & Russo. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress is expected to cost roughly $135,584, according to sources who spoke to the Daily Mail.

Numbers and figures

Even average wedding day requires a lot of spends and in case we’re talking about Royals sums go up fast.

The greatest cost for the royal couple is security. Protecting Markle and Prince Harry, plus thousands of guests and onlookers, will run Kensington Palace a whopping $43 million, estimates Bride Book. That includes the cost of snipers, undercover police, military technology, and security drones. The bulk of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding budget similarly went to security costs.

Otherwise, Markle and Prince Harry’s total wedding spend, including food, cakes, entertainment, wardrobe, and the honeymoon, amounts to about $2.8 million.

The Royal Family’s favorite champagne, Bollinger, goes for nearly $115 a bottle; that’s approximately $195,000 (£136,000) spent on champagne alone.

800 guests are attending the church and then the formal lunchtime reception, followed by a private evening reception for family and friends of about 600 people. However, in a surprise twist, Harry and Meghan invited 2,640 members of the public to celebrate with them at Windsor Castle.
