Everything we know about Princess Eugenie’s wedding
2018 is officially the year of royal weddings, with not one, but two taking place this year! Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding has been and gone, we’re focusing on Princess Eugenie of York’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank later this Autumn…

When is it?
The Royal Family announced Princess Eugenie’s engagement back in January of this year, after Jack popped the question on a trip to Nicaragua. The wedding itself will be held on Friday, October 12th 2018, reportedly to work around Prince Harry and Meghan’s foreign tours.

Where is it?
Princess Eugenie will follow in Prince Harry’s footsteps and get married in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, which makes them the 11th couple to marry there.
The bridal party and guests
Bucking the trend for having only junior bridesmaids, Princess Eugenie has confirmed that sister Beatrice will be her maid of honour on the big day.
1,200 members of the public will also be given the chance to attend the wedding in a ballot draw, which the Princess confirmed on her personal Instagram account. The ballot is now unfortunately closed, but the draw will be done before September – fingers crossed for a Guides for Brides ticket!
The wedding dress
In an exclusive interview with British Vogue, Princess Eugenie confirmed that the designer of her wedding dress had been chosen and was British. “It’s the one thing that I was really decisive about,” she said. “As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.”
Experts speculate that front-runners for the designer in question could be Erdem (as Eugenie wore an Erdem dress for her engagement portrait), Vivienne Westwood and Ralph & Russo.
Will the wedding be eco-friendly?
The trend for eco-friendly weddings is on the rise, and the royals are catching on too! “My whole house is anti-plastic now – and Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well,” said Eugenie in her Vogue interview. We’re excited to see how this will manifest itself for the royal wedding!
