The rest of us can best hope for a semi-competent DJ who won't just play ABBA for four hours straight for the wedding reception, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won't be in quite the same position.
The lavish royal nuptials will almost certainly include an A-list performance or two at the reception, with part of the engagement announcement reading: "This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters of the Bride and Groom."
Which, with absolute certainty, sent everyone into rumour overdrive. To note, it was Ellie Goulding who took to the stage in 2011 for Prince William and Kate Middleton's marriage. Here's the breakdown of who's actually most likely to perform.
In February, Mel B. confirmed on The Real that she was set to attend, alongside the rest of the Spice Girls. "I'm not sure if I should have said that," she added. "Why am I so honest?"
When probed about whether they'd be performing, Mel B. sighed and threw her note cards in the air exclaiming: "I need to go. I'm going to be fired." A reluctant confirmation?
Beyond this, there's no actual concrete information as to who has been asked to lend their vocals for the night. Ed Sheeran, a likely candidate, was probed by reporters and replied that he hadn't been asked, but if he had: "Yeah, why not?"
Indeed, plenty of artists have expressed an interest. Sam Smith volunteered to The Sun, adding: "I'm obsessed. I want to sing at the wedding. Oh my god, I'd love to. It would be a dream." Stormzy also said after the MOBO Awards that he would not mind providing "a little acoustic for young Harry".
People also pointed out that Harry has a fairly long list of musicians he's already collaborated with: Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams recently performed at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games, Coldplay headlined a Kensington Palace gig for his charity Sentebale and, in 2007, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Pharrell Williams, and Duran Duran all performed at a concert commemorating the tenth anniversary of Princess Diana's death.
Markle, meanwhile, revealed some of her own musical tastes when she posted a playlist on her former lifestyle blog, The Tig, which included the likes of Crystal Fighters, Dragonette, Maggie Flowers, and Janelle Monáe.
General celebrity attendees rumoured to attend include Serena Williams, Joss Stone, Cara Delevingne, James Blunt, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, and Markle's Suits co-star Patrick J. Adams.
