THE CAKE

“Oh, Violet Cakes Bak­ery — you get me ev­ery sin­gle time,” foodie Meghan once wrote on her blog of the cre­ations of pas­try chef Claire Ptak, whom she chose to make a lemon el­der­flower wed­ding cake. It’ll be iced with but­ter­cream and dec­o­rated with fresh flow­ers.

BRI­DAL PARTY

“The wed­ding will be a fam­ily event. You can ex­pect the fam­ily to be in­volved,” Harry and Meghan’s rep has said of the wed­ding party, which will in­clude Prince Ge­orge, 4, and Princess Char­lotte, 3.

FA­MOUS GUESTS

”I’m most stressed about wear­ing a small hat,” jokes Meghan’s pal Priyanka Cho­pra of at­tend­ing the big day, adding that it’s been “re­ally tough” fig­ur­ing out what gift to get the happy cou­ple.

LUNCH RE­CEP­TION

The queen has in­vited about 600 peo­ple to lunch at St. Ge­orge’s Hall at Wind­sor Cas­tle im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony. On the menu? Lo­cal as­para­gus, choco­late truf­fles and bite-size crème brûlée.

U.S. BISHOP

The Most Rev­erend Michael Bruce Curry, the Chicago-based bishop of the Epis­co­pal Church, will give the ad­dress at the wed­ding. Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury Justin Welby is of­fi­ci­at­ing the vow ex­change.

IN­TI­MATE PARTY

In the even­ing, Prince Charles will host 200 guests at Frog­more House, an of­fi­cial royal res­i­dence near Wind­sor Cas­tle where Harry and Meghan took their en­gage­ment pho­tos.

DRESS GUESS

In a May 1 tweet, the Royal School of Needle­work (mak­ers of the lace for Kate Mid­dle­ton’s gown) re­vealed that reps from Ralph & Russo had vis­ited to check out their em­broi­dery, lead­ing to spec­u­la­tion that Meghan’s gown would be de­signed by the Bri­tish la­bel.
