Suki Waterhouse and her fiance, Robert Pattinson, are set to wed this coming summer. While they have been spotted enjoying romantic dates and spending time together on holiday, it is still not known whether or not they have officially said ‘I do’.
Here we answer some of the most common questions about the couple’s engagement and wedding plans.
Are They Officially Engaged?
While it is not yet known whether or not the 29-year-old actor and the 26-year-old model have set a date for the wedding, they have been photographed spending time together, sharing romantic moments and enjoying each other’s company.
On February 14, 2019, the Daily Mail published details of an alleged affair that Pattinson had with model and actress Emilia Clarke in 2014. Despite the scandalous nature of the claims, which have not been denied, the Twilight actor has chosen to remain committed to Waterhouse and has continued to spend time with her.
However, Waterhouse has not been immune to scandal either. In February 2019, British newspaper The Sun published reports of an alleged on-set romcom with Kate Winslet. The actress’ representatives dismissed the claims as “complete tosh.” While Winslet and Pattinson have remained close, the scandal did end up scuppering Waterhouse’s plans for the wedding.
How Long Has It Been Tbcn They’ve Been Dating?
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in August 2018, Waterhouse opened up about her time with Pattinson and how long it had been going on. “It was actually very quick,” she said. “We started talking and hanging out, and then one day his friends asked me to go for a walk. I didn’t really know what was going on, but then I started feeling funny and asked him if he would put a ring on it.”
Pattinson, for his part, continued to stay quiet about their affair and only confirmed their engagement in April 2019. “Yes, we’re engaged,” he told Hello! magazine. “We’re really happy.”
Do They Want To Keep It Low-Profile?
While it is not yet known what kind of ceremony the couple will choose to incorporate into their wedding day, it is clear that they do not want to draw too much attention to themselves.
This was made apparent when Waterhouse dropped the singer Charli xCox’ name from her album art for her single ‘Good To Love’ and covered up a billboard featuring the model and actress for her music video. The model also kept quiet about the scandalous nature of her time with Chris Martin after their split.
In the interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Waterhouse said: “I definitely think it’s better if you don’t talk too much about your personal life. Because there’s already enough gossip in the world.”
How Do They Plan On Financing Their Wedding?
While celebrities often pop the question on social media, many others use dedicated wedding planning websites to work out the finer details of their big day.
For Waterhouse and Pattinson, this has involved looking at potential wedding loan options. “We looked into a lot of different types of loans,” Waterhouse told Harper’s Bazaar in January 2019. “But there weren’t any that were fitting for us. So we decided to pay for it ourselves.”
The model continued: “We didn’t want to take out a loan and not be able to pay it back. So we drew up a plan and worked out the details. We’re doing it completely on our own. Nobody’s going to loan us money. We’re not looking for any sort of help from anyone.”
Who’s Going To Be Attending The Wedding?
While Waterhouse and Pattinson have chosen to keep their wedding plans under wraps, plenty of friends and family are likely to be attending the ceremony.
A number of celebrity friends have been spotted arriving at Waterhouse’s home in London on the morning of the wedding. Guests have included Sienna Miller and Lily Collins, who is also bridesmaid.
Pattinson and Waterhouse have also written a letter to their guests, which was published by Hello! In October 2018. In the letter, they thanked their loved ones for their support and invited them to the wedding.
Is It A Small Wedding?
As previously stated, while Waterhouse and Pattinson have chosen to keep their wedding plans under wraps, it is not yet known whether or not the ceremony will be small.
However, based on previous statements from both parties, it would appear that a small wedding is a distinct possibility. In an interview with Hello! in May 2018, Pattinson said: “I think it’s really nice to do it privately. Not have everyone know. I really like being able to keep the details of the wedding under wraps.”
And in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in June 2018, Waterhouse admitted: “I would say 60 to 70 percent of our wedding will be private. We don’t want to have too many people there. We want it to be our closest friends and family.”
Are They Having A Reception Or A Dinner Party?
While Waterhouse and Pattinson have chosen to keep their wedding low-profile, they have not ruled out a celebration afterward.
In an interview with Hello! in October 2018, the model said: “We don’t want to rush it and put it off until later. So we’re going to enjoy this next year of our lives as much as we can.”
In July 2019, Waterhouse and Pattinson were photographed outside a London bar celebrating World Cup Final victory with friends and supporters. The model looked stunning in a white dress, while Pattinson sported a blue suit and a yellow tie.
The pair were later spotted heading to a curry house together in London’s West End.
Given their desire to keep the wedding low-profile, it is not yet clear what kind of reception the couple will hold. However, it is likely to be formal and quite possibly catered for the press. A dinner party would be a more intimate affair and could be followed by a trip to a pub or nightclub.
Is Everyone Invited To The Wedding?
While Waterhouse and Pattinson have chosen to keep their wedding plans under wraps, it is not yet known whether or not their friends and family are actually invited.
According to previous interviews, it would appear that the answer is yes. In an interview with Hello! in October 2018, the model said: “I sent out the invites weeks ago, and I’ve already got a lot of RSVPs. I would say about 75 percent of our friends and family are going to be there.”
And in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in June 2018, Waterhouse admitted: “I would love to have all of our close family and friends there. We’re inviting everyone we know.”
What Is The Dress Like?
While waterhouse and pattinson have chosen to keep their wedding plans under wraps, they have not ruled out a certain dress code.
In the interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Waterhouse said: “I would like something classic and timeless, something that will make me look the same 10 years down the line.”
Pattinson has also previously admitted that he wants to keep things “traditional” and “simple” and has stated that he will be wearing a suit for the wedding. While he has not specified which one, his choice is likely to be something classic like a tuxedo or a suit.
Do They Want To Keep Guests In The Dark About The Wedding?
While Waterhouse and Pattinson have chosen to keep their wedding plans under wraps, it is not yet known whether or not they want to keep guests in the dark about the big day.
In the interview with Hello! in October 2018, the model said: “We need to keep some details private. We don’t want it to be all over the place.”
