With Meghan Markle's and Prince Harry's wedding nuptials right around the corner on May 19 at St George's Chapel, people are already wondering what kind of fashion will be involved on the big day and what the royal wedding dress code will be like. It's no secret that the royals have a ton of fashion and etiquette rules that they have to follow — like no hats are allowed after 6 p.m. because that's tiara time, or coats could never be taken off in public because the action is unladylike — so you can only imagine what the rules are like for an engagement like a royal wedding.
Let's just say there won't be too many experimental fashion choics or sequined mini dresses involved. The royal wedding is built around tradition and decorum, where many of the major customs used during the big day are over or nearly a hundred years old. From how the wedding band will look, to what is inside the royal bouquet, to the type of hats that will be pinned to women's heads, it all has a rich and interesting history — and the royals take the responsibility of upholding these traditions seriously. Check out some of the most interesting ones below, and see if you could spot them when you're watching the ceremony on the big day.
