Ceasar's wife = above reproach.

I will be on an airplane while the wedding is going on. I'll see it later.

There was an article published a while back ago although I would have no clue where to find it now in the archives. Perhaps under a Kate thread pre engagement. Seems the Middleton family dog deemed fit to swallow one of her pearl earrings that William had given her. IIRC it was around the holidays in 2009.

This is a royal wedding, something is not going to be simple. I doubt she will have the simple granny pearls like Sophie did. I know Elizabeth did as well, but her entire gown was shimmering in pearls and lace, which I hope Kate won't do. If her dress is more simple and elegant, more jewels can be used about her neck and with her tiara, without looking to over board.

Or combine the both. Diana had all those beautiful pearl chokers, and I believe at least one had saphires. Could add a bit of color and sparkle without being over the top.

After seeing what Kate's choices in wardrobe has been over the years, I do tend to believe that she will go the simplistic yet elegant route that Victoria did on her wedding day last year. I went back and looking at the photos, other than the cameo tiara and what looks like cameo drop earrings, she wore no other jewelry. Kate is a beautiful young woman and with the glow she'll be wearing on her day, less will be more. Then again, she might just surprise me.

I think it depends on the neckline. Victoria's neckline would not have worked well with a necklace, it looked perfect with the bare neck. If Kate were to go for a v or sweet heart or any other more dropped neckline, something against her skin there would be more fitting.

Crown Princess Victoria also wore a matching bracelet in addition to the tiara and earrings. (+ of course her engagement ring and later also her wedding ring)

Opinion-writers in the UK criticize the inclusion of "dictators" on the Royal Guest List:

Bahrain's king as a royal wedding guest? What an dreadful message | Graham Smith | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

I don't see how someone can be de-invited from a wedding.

I love the charities they chose, ones which really reflect them as a couple, and what they might focus on when William is done his stint with the RAF. Military of course, support for the families, was included. But there is a lot to do with kids, reminds me a lot of Princess Diana, but they have strayed away from her charities. There was one about using basketball in Northern Ireland to bring teens together. And dance classes for kids in under priviledged areas, to boost self esteem and encourage them to improve their lives. And the black rhinos seems fitting, considering their proposal, and all the time Will has spent in Africa. Kate does have a terminal ill kids one listed, which is similar to Diana, but her parents have been long time funders of the Starlight foundation. The bullying one is one I think more countries needed to focus time and money on.

I can see headlines in a few years, if they get a Ducal title, like The Duchess of Sussex attends dance recital as part of her patronage. Or new baby black Rhino named at London zoo William, in honor of the Duke of Camebridge.

Royal Wedding GE fridge celebrates Prince William and Kate Middleton with class - Princess Diana Remembered

William and Kate will smash glass at wedding - Princess Diana Remembered
Quote:
According to detailed wedding plans, due to be released on Sunday, a small amount of mehendi or turmeric, paste will be smeared on Kate's hand in a Muslim pre-wedding ritual. The couple will then offer each other a morsel of food to express mutual love and affection in accordance with the Hindu practice, and then William will smash a glass with his foot as at Jewish weddings.

I think so too. Now, if they were to jump the broom in Westminster Abbey, I'd think that would be kind of tacky. Its really obvious though that these two are putting a lot of thought and meaning into their special ceremony.

I have a feeling this wedding will be very traditional. He is an Anglican and so is she ( I presume). And they will be married in the all the pomp and splendor of the that church's rites. I do not see why they would incorporate other religious traditions in their wedding. With respect, that is weird.

One can tell by their choice not only in music, but musicians...what kind of wedding this will be.

It seems they plan to include a few. It isn't that uncommon, I have seen certain elements even added to a catholic celebration before. I think it is an attempt by the modern couple to embrace the fact that the people of the UK come from different cultures and faiths. For the most part it will be a beautiful traditional Anglican ceremony, but a small touch from other faiths to include their people into the ceremony. I think as long as it is done in the right way, it won't take away from the beauty of the ceremony or tradition.

Adding non-Christian elements to a Christian wedding ceremony is an affront, at least to me. Either you are or you are not.

I suppose they are trying to please everyone and will end up pleasing no one. Why try to be other than what they are? No one invited the rest of the world, much less give input, so why even incorporate some one else's traditions. Out there somewhere will be a minority that has been "forgotten" and there will be a stink made, just wait. Just have a good old fashioned Anglican wedding!!!

Perhaps we could add these little touches to the "something borrowed" list.

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.
(Okay, this will be the last I say on this. It is attacking when you pick apart several posts from someone with nothing to achieve but to bash every thing they say while not actually reading everything they wrote (for example the lilac dress: I wrote more than once not a copy, not the 80's style, but updated, modernized, but having inspiration from the ethereal, beautiful image it gave). Why call me negative then be far worse yourself? You don't know Kate, I don't know Kate, it is all speculation. When I said no matter which dress I posted you would hate it I meant any dress in the world, not dresses of Diana (I only really like the dreamy lilac and the racy black dress from early in their relationship). You have made up your mind that anything I write you are not going to find any merit in which is too bad. Why aim so much venom at a fellow poster (me and others on many threads) who you don't agree with? It's only a wedding. Disagree with me as much as you want but please do it respectfully. )

Yes, Kate does not instantly say from what she's worn so far that she's a "fairytale" type girl, yet she is marrying a prince in an amazing cathedral. So I believe that she will have to somehow have a splashier dress than we've seen her wear before (for the sheer magnitude of the venue and the distance of the tv cameras, etc.) I know a woman who never wore dresses even in regular life always casual pants, etc., but when she married she wore a very pretty full length gown, looked good in it, and astounded everyone. A modern women is lucky to have such a wide variety of styles so I think even a more staid woman can choose to look the fairytale part for the day.

I really like more exotic touches to more traditional dresses as well. For example William proposed to Kate in Africa, so she may work something subtly into her dress with that, or even something small like the garter (if the royal family does the garter thing?). I recall that Alicia Keys wore a pretty usual white dress (I've only seen from the waist up) but had this rather pretty East Indian style jewel bands in her hair which gave her a unique look while not being outrageous.

The actual wedding dress I imagine is going to be quite big (as in skirts), or with a long train because it's said she will change right after the photos to another dress for the reception the Queen is hosting (which leads me to believe it may be a difficult to maneuver in dress). Perhaps there will be yet another outfit for the reception dinner Charles is throwing? I wonder if there will be any photos of those for us to see?

I am done with this. Not every response to your post is an attack. I am a grown up, I am walking away, please show you are the same and do so.

For incorporating other traditions into the ceremony, I think it can be done in such a way it does not look like a show. I have been to weddings which have. Usually it is when the couples are from two different cultures, and they try to incorporate both. I agree it does seem a bit odd considering they are both Anglican. But as long as it is not over the top, I don't see the problem with it. Every bride and groom tends to personalize their ceremony in some way.
