Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's October 12th wedding is just around the corner, and all the final details seem to be coming together. The first cousin of Prince Harry and Prince William has already picked her venue, St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, and will reportedly be inviting such guests as George and Amal Clooney and Ellie Goulding. Now, it looks like the bride and groom have also chosen their florist for the big day.

According to an article in The Times, the royal couple have reportedly enlisted London-based florist Rob van Helden to design and create the flower arrangements for their royal wedding. This isn't van Helden's first foray into the world of floral fêtes for the famous: He has previously worked with other celebs like Pierce Brosnan and Elton John.

While it is still unknown the exact flowers the couple will predominantly feature in their decor, we have a few clues as to what we might see on the big day. Like Meghan Markle and other royals before her, Princess Eugenie's bouquet will likely include a sprig of myrtle—a tradition for royal brides for centuries. Her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, included myrtle in her famous S-shaped bouquet, along with gardenias, roses, and lilies of the valley.

And if Princess Eugenie decides to take further inspiration from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials, we might see a similar arrangement of white blooms and greenery covering St. George's Chapel. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose white garden roses, foxglove, and peonies, along with branches of beech, birch, and hornbeam for their floral arrangements at their May 19th wedding.

Royal wedding history has shown that a lot of couples have opted for this white and green color palette, so Eugenie may follow suit. In fact, van Helden's Instagram page shows plenty of similarly stunning arrangements.

If he has been tapped for the royal wedding event, we can only imagine the gorgeousness he comes up with!
