And according to this press release, the BBC America coverage is going to be a direct simulcast of BBC One, and it's going to be commercial-free.

Hmmmm... I'll definitely have to keep that in mind should any of the US channels go to commercials. My cable provider doesn't offer BBC America in HD and since I bought my HDTV the summer before last, I've migrated to most of the HD channels.

I read somewhere that the mark of a fashion icon is someone that people copy. So, as we have seen, if Kate wears something and it immediately sells out, she qualifies. It doesn't surprise me at all that women are copying her because, by and large, women are going to copy styles that are wearable and Kate's wardrobe is classic and very wearable. Whether or not she always pulls an entire look together, she picks some really great pieces that would be a great addition to anyone's closet.

I feel like she is not old enough and hasn't had enough fashion impact to be considered an icon... yet. To me an icon implies a legacy and Kate certainly doesn't have that status yet. Fashionable maybe, someone people copy, sure but icon....? That's a bit high I think

I am the first person to say I hope she doesn't copy Diana. Yet grand wedding dresses always call to the past in some way, to some era. In fact it is usually the one day women will indulge their romantic fantasies of fashion from the past.

As for a flower "wreath" no. Fresh flowers in her hair which many brides choose now would be very pretty. I mention Fergie as in how she went in single, not royal with flowers, and emerged married and revealing the tiara which was nice and surprisingly humble.

Also I wrote I liked the idea of a fairy princess like, floaty dress in white, not lilac as in Diana's photo. If you want to pick apart my posts relentlessly please read them completely first, and even then give me a break. I come here to have fun and speculate.

Very interesting posts guys about Mary, I didn't realize white was the color of mourning then. Yet, come to think of it, recently I have seen a movie from the Philippines which shows a funeral where the mourners also wore all white.

I hope Kate will choose a dress that is right for her, and for the church occasion, because she will have to live with the photos for years to come. It is fun to speculate on several types of dresses, colors, hairstyles, makeup, etc. We may all be very surprised what she chooses, I hope so. I know the sort of dress I would design for her (more ethereal), and I will enjoy seeing what she does wear because I keep going in circles wondering. At least the wedding is coming soon!
Someone disagreeing with your dress choice is not a personal attack so don't make it one. And yes, I'd likely disagree with any dresses of Diana's, as like I stated they were good for the 80's but are out dated in the 21st century. Again not a personal attack, stating my opinion, as you stated your opinion. This is a discussion forumn is it not?

And I never suggested you thought she should wear another color. The only mention of color was my opinion on it, again not all about you. I thought there was a chance, in under skirts or such, there may be color. Numerous other posters mentioned other colors being common even in royal dresses.

I hope the dress is totally Kate. Yes she could do a fairy princess look but it isn't her. She is not a princess from fairy tales, she is a modern princess. I hope she picks something beautiful and modern, but still with enough tradition to fit the beautiful cathedral she is getting married in.

I agree, and I think it is also for people a lot more down to earth. You know even her days where she is not all put together. She isn't some celebrity who walks out the door looking like she had some personal stylist work on her for hours. You know she shops at Top shop and such, stores we can just go buy her item (well I am excited as we are getting them in Canada soon). She does have her expensive designer pieces too, but a lot of her pieces we can run out and buy, and not get knock offs. And she is young, unfortunately a lot of the younger celebrities dress pretty trashy, Kate is different.

"Matthew revealed he is not disappointed to have missed out, saying designing the dress is not his "thing"

Yeah, right Matthew, I would just bet that designing that wedding dress isn't his "thing".

Pardon me, while I pick myself up off the floor from laughing.

Personally, that beautiful dress from 1981 is one of my favourites from the early Diana years. I love the way that it looks in stills and also on video.

Where did I defend Kate? and against what? Little confused here. We were discussing whether taking inspiration from one of Diana's dresses was a good idea. I have no idea how that gets misconstrued as defending Kate. And again against what?

I am afraid that some members cannot comprehend the notion of conversation where one shares ones often disparate opinions, albeit on a forum, with each other. The notion that someone does not agree totally with their point of view makes them feel attacked and they lash out which, when you consider the subject was wedding dress colours, is mind blowing.

Just think, KATE & diamonds, tiara, lace, satin, silk, tulle, veils, trains and whatever floats your boat on the subject and ignore the rants. And let's face it, there is so much to speculate and muse about on this topic and let's face it, it has a finite life which ends with "The Wedding"! Those more interested in their fragile ego's are better left to themselves.

Talking jewels, perhaps saphires instead of diamonds. Go with the ring, could be her something blue and if a Windsor heirloom, her borrowed and old as well. I know there are several beautiful saphire pieces, and if she is in white (shade of white) saphires would be beautiful.

Since every royal bride I have seen has stuck with the discreet flash of diamonds I have to admit I am ready to flirt with the notion of Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds . . . . . do we have a drooling smilie anywhere?

I agree, BUT.
Aren't colored jewels considered tacky for a bride?

(I'm not certain about this, since my personal jewel collection is what you might call limited (if you were being kind).

Yet if I'm wrong, then I think sapphires would be lovely.

I also think the attendants should wear that Saxon Blue shade that is the color of the Garter sash! (since William is sure to wear that).

I think you could do some subtle coloured jewels, nothing too in your face or over-whelming etc. Especially if it were sapphire as that would work with the engagement ring, William's garter sash (& RAF uniform if that is what he wears). Plus I like blue as an accompanying colour to most things, think it goes well with white, with silvers, off-whites & cream colours (basically all the "usual" wedding colours). So yeah I think some subtle sapphires would work well...could depend on what bridesmaids etc are wearing & and flower displays etc though as quite often there's a colour scheme & theme everyone is working within & for a wedding of this public attention I'd assume there is some sort of overall colour scheme they're going to aim for.

I think that Kate will go very understated on the jewels she wears for the wedding and will wear simple pearls. Too bad the dog ate one of the pearl earrings William gave her eh? Ivory, lace and pearls in a very simple but elegant design is what I'm leaning towards.
