I must be really behind the episodes cause covered arms is a rarity on that show!
No, you're not missing anything. I think that almost every episode that's why I was so excited to see Kate's dress it's just the sort I would want for myself. Please let this be the return of sleeves!

Catherine would have had "music "rehearsals at the Abbey. I had the same prior to my wedding, not at the Abbey, but at a very large parish church.My processional music was the march from Waltons "Crown Imperial", the middle section from Catherine and Williams recessional music. The organist, who was a close friend , had me practice walking slowly, I'm naturally a quick walker !

I always thought that the Bridal party were the one's who had to match the music, not the other way around. The musicians just play and the bride etc. have practiced how to keep pace with what is being played. I think it went very well at W*Ks wedding because it was so great when she arrived at the climax of the music.
I don't want to be annoying about this; but if anybody does know the reason as to why Kate held the hand of her father and William as opposed to linking arms, I would really like to know. It's not a huge deal, I have just never seen that done before.

This was done at Sophie and Edward's wedding too.

Are you referring to the instance when the Archbishop had their hands under a part of his robe (I don't know the correct name for that part of the vestment, so I apologize in advance)? I think that was the binding of the hands, and that does date back to the Middle Ages, if not before. I know that that particular ritual was big in Ireland in that time period, and have no idea if it carried on from there. I apologize if I just totally confused you.

I think that is the correct term, but shouldn't these posts be in the Wedding Service thread rather than in this Wedding Dress one?

Yes! Thank you for giving the correct term.

On that note, back to topic.

Now that will be a big line.
It would be nice if Sarah Burton showed the drawing made for the dress.

The article says that the cake will be part of the display. The actual cake?! Didn't they eat it? If not, won't it be rather nasty by October?

Most likely it would be an artificial version of the original cake or something but not the actual sponge and icing as it wont last for 4 days

The cake could last forever --- it was fruitcake!

If they'd had sponge that would be true, but they had a traditional English fruitcake. Those are made well in advance (think a month or more) and steeped in spirits. They literally last for ages. My mother in law makes her Christmas fruitcakes in October, and my husband will make his last until his birthday in February. As an American, it grosses me out, but that's apparently normal.

As someone who makes (american style!) cakes myself as a small business, I can say that the icing will solidify and remain stable for quite a long time. Most of the cakes you see in the windows of bakeries are icing and fondant applied to molds (fake cake forms) but the icing and fondant are real and will last for a long time. You wouldn't want to eat it, of course, but it looks fine.

I don't know exactly what they will be displaying - certainly part of the cake was cut and served at the wedding reception. It may be part of the cake (some upper layers?) or it could be a replica that the baker made. Hard to say, I'm curious to learn more!

In British countries some families have the tradition of keeping the top layer of the wedding cake to be eaten on the first anniversary. As it is fruit cake steeped in spirits and the icing is fondant it could last for even longer than that. But in this case I should imagine it is a replica made when a choice was being made as to which cake the couple wanted.

I also want to see the sketch,and her putting on the dress on the wedding day like Mette Marit.

Some weeks before the wedding someone on TV said on the day of the wedding they were going to show who the wedding dress designer is and the sketch.I guess she was wrong!
