Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in November, wedding fever has been felt up and down the country.
The shows no sign of slowing down, not least due to the endless popularity of the prince and evolving adoration of the former Suits actress. Just as the case was with William and Kate in 2011, the event will most likely dominate media coverage, social media feeds and conversations in the run-up to and over that weekend.
However, for a certain group of people, on Saturday 19 May this won't be the case. Let's spare a thought for the couples who booked that date for their own wedding, most probably at least 18 months ago, only to find out that it that will be watched by millions around the world.
How exactly do those couples feel? Do they care their big day has a chance of being ever so slightly overshadowed? Has it affected their plans at all? And, in all honesty, are they a little bit disappointed they won't be able to watch the proceedings?
With the help of wedding planning app and website , we asked several brides all of the above, and more.
Age 24. Marrying Logan Melley, 26.
"We will be getting married on our five year anniversary on the island of Bryher in the Isles of Scilly, where 100 people live, including me! Although we won't be surrounded by thousands of people on our day like Harry and Meghan, we will be surrounded by beautiful beaches and scenery.
"When Prince Harry and Meghan first got engaged, we joked they were stealing our thunder, but in reality, it hasn't impacted our day or plans at all as we live in such a small part of the UK.
"I'm going to have the royal wedding on in the background, while myself and the bridal party get ready. I imagine it will feel quite surreal knowing that I'll be feeling similar emotions to Meghan that morning, although I'm very glad we won't have quite as big an audience.
"Through our shared wedding date, we'll always have a connection to the royals, which is nice. We've both been lucky enough to meet some of the royals before when they have visited the Isles of Scilly. We recently met Kate and William when they visited the Tresco Abbey Gardens, which is actually where Logan proposed to me with my late Great Aunt's ring.
"On our islands, a local wedding is almost as exciting as a royal wedding so I will be feeling a little like a princess for the day too."
Age 26. Marrying Andrew Dixon, 30
"After a five-and-a-half-year relationship, we will be getting married in the church I have been attending since I was a child in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, where we are both from.
"We picked our wedding date because it was almost exactly two years since we got engaged. We were totally surprised when we heard the royal wedding was going to be in May but we expected it to be one of the bank holiday weekends. However, when we knew it was going to be on the same day it was actually super exciting, friends and family were texting us non-stop and there was a buzz again just like when we got engaged.
"We haven't finalised the schedule for our day yet, but I'd love to say 'I do' at the same time as Meghan and Harry. Our family, including my mother-in-law, has joked about not being able to come because they want to watch the royal wedding.
"I'm sure everyone will be keeping an eye on social media throughout the day though, I can't wait to see what her dress is going to be like because her style is amazing. Every bride's top priority is their dress but I can't even begin to compete with Meghan."
Age 38. Marrying Olley, 36.
"Olley proposed to me on New Years Eve, 2016 in the Lake District, where we were on holiday. We were on one of our favourite hikes in the area when, at a particularly beautiful setting, Olley paused and went into his rucksack where he then pulled out a ring.
"We've now chosen to get married in the Lake District too, just 10 minutes away from where we got engaged.
"When Harry and Meghan announced their engagement, we joked they'd almost certainly pick the same day as us because we're such trendsetters (we're not, in the slightest), but we didn't actually think it would happen. One friend joked that he knew which wedding 'he'd rather go to', but he's not going to get an invitation to that one, unfortunately.
"We won't be screening the royal wedding, but I look forward to seeing the pictures the next day. I think my Dad is more upset about the clash with the FA cup final, to be honest, he'd prefer us to screen that.
"It's definitely been fun telling people we're getting married on the same day as the royals. Since we booked our venue we've found out that the 19 May seems to be a really popular date. We discovered a friend booked their wedding on the same day and other relatives say they'd chosen the third weekend in May for their big day too. I guess we aren't really trendsetters, after all."
Aged 28. Marrying Matthew Heather, 30
"After meeting on 19 May in 2010, we chose the same date in 2018 to be our wedding day. We got engaged in 2014, but after having time to save, my daughter is now old enough to walk down the aisle with me and enjoy the day too. It will be our eighth anniversary too which is perfect.
"We were both excited when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed the date of their wedding was the same as ours, but we are also relieved we'd already booked and paid for everything. I've heard some suppliers have upped prices. Luckily, no one has tried changing pricing or cancelled on us. No suppliers have even mentioned the royal wedding when we've contacted them, they just concentrate on us and make us feel like we're the only couple getting married on that day.
"We are getting married later on in the afternoon so, during their ceremony, I'll be getting ready. I might possibly have it on in the background, but I think I'll be so excited, nervous and busy that I won't have time to properly watch or pay attention to it.
"But, if guests want to watch it, they have plenty of time before the ceremony. It might event put people in an upbeat, celebratory mood which will bring an element of added atmosphere to our special day."
