Princess Eugenie's Wedding Will Be a Bigger Celebration Than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's

Though the cousins chose the same ceremony and lunch reception venues, the bride-to-be is planning a multi-day event.

While Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's mid-October wedding will have much in common with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 2018 nuptials, there will be one key difference: It's going to include one additional day of partying, People reports.

 

Just like her cousin, Eugenie will be married at St. George's Chapel with 500 guests in attendance, then celebrate with a lunch reception hosted by her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at Windsor Castle. That evening, guests will join the couple at the bride's family home, Royal Lodge, for a black-tie reception. But unlike Harry and Meghan, Eugenie and Jack will keep things going with an additional reception the following day.

According to People, guests will join the couple again on Saturday, this time for a festival-style reception complete with a fairground and food stalls. With Bentley's Entertainments, the same event planners that Victoria and David Beckham used for their own lavish wedding, on board, it's sure to be quite the party. And Posh and Becks, who are said to be attending, might not be the only notable faces on the guest list. Ellie Goulding, James Blunt, George and Amal Clooney, and Elton John are all rumored to have scored invites, too. 

 

While the multi-day event will be far from intimate, the couple has been involved in the entire planning process and will be sure to inject a few personal touches. One place where the couple may choose to show off their style? The music. Eugenie recently attended a Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert, and with noteworthy singers invited (and Robbie Williams' daughter reportedly in the wedding party), the festival-themed gathering could include a few memorable performances.
