Yes, Charles said, "All thy goods I with thee share." Someone, I believe at the reception, said, "He's got that right." Makes me think that the Spencers must have been VERY wealthy. I don't remember the wrong hand bit either.

Sent from my iPhone using The Royals
baby's breath: purity, innocence and the beauty of the holy spirit (likely why like wearing white, brides traditionally have in bouquets)
bluebells:constancy and humility, both part of traditional vows
carnations: among their meanings joy and devoted love, but don't use white, white carnations represent refusal of this.
dahlia: dignity, ellegance, and forever thine
daisy: loyal love, patience, simplicity
forget me nots: true love and memories
roses: red passion, white purity, pink happiness, yellow though is now considered a sign of friendship is actually a sign of infidelity

I'd like a beautiful more wild flower feel, than some formal bunch of roses or lilies. Some color would be nice against her gown as well, and not sweeping waterfall boquet either.

I think at both civil and church weddings, at the end of the ceremony the vicar or officiant says to the groom "you may kiss your bride" or something like that. But as far as I am aware this has never happened at a British royal wedding. Frederik and Mary kissed each other just before they walked down the aisle - maybe for William and Kate we'll see a kiss other than on the balcony?!

Grooms have wedding rings, it is part of the ceremony, a required part. I am pretty sure considering how formal the royal family is, and the fact he couldn't flirt in a bar if he tried, William will wear one.
There is no requirement for a wedding ring for either the bride or the groom. It is traditional for the bride to have one, but double ring ceremonies are quite new.

I am sure William will have a wedding ring, like his father and grandfather, but I don't think he'll wear it on his "wedding ring" finger. They wear the wedding ring on the pinkie, under their signet ring. However, he might wear it like commoners do, but it doesn't matter.

I believe it was customary for a male to not wear a wedding ring, per Anglican custom.

Skippy, you'll be sad to note that the origin of the wedding ring was to indicate the woman was "chattel." The rings were made of iron or some other worthless metal. Men didn't regularly wear wedding rings until the 20th century, and then only because the ring makers convinced women that their husbands needed one.

EVERYTHING is money driven.

Also, kissing at the altar is not an Anglican tradition, but since it will be a "modern" wedding, they might.

I seem to remind that Charles gave Diana a ring with the words he spoke after the Archbishop had told him the words to say: "With this ring I thee wed...." But I can't recall if Diana said something similar. I guess not, somehow.

No, I am not sad to note that. It doesn't sound totally new to me.

I do not totally agree with that. An awful lot is money driven, I'll second that. But not all.

Hmmm, we'll see.

Of course this wedding will be a modern wedding, it's not taking place in 1657.

RE: the flowers - Sweet Williams are one of the many Dianthus'es (Dianthus barbatus) aka 'pinks' - smallish flowers, short stems and not terribly long lasting when cut, not one I choose from my garden for bouquets for these reasons. I must be in the minority - I love the humongous waterfall bouquets w/ green in them, but I'm a flower nut, so I'm undoubtedly biased.

What I would love is to see Catherine with a very vibrant bouquet, since she'll more than likely be wearing white or an off-white dress. Something that really stands out. Dark red roses with a white satin band around the stems would be absolutely gorgeous, as would dark red roses surrounding pure white roses in the center.

I love both of these ideas it looks so classic aganist a white or off white dress...


I make flowers for weddings as a hobby, my friend (who is from Russia) got married last week and I made her a bouquet of red and white roses with silver satin around the steams (as her dress was a very sexy silver bit) they looked amazing ... if I do say so myself lol

Maybe not in Anglican. In Catholic, lutheran and alliance weddings i have been to, the bride repeats the same vows as the man does, including during the ring. I have never been to a civil ceremony, in Canada you don't have both. Either you have a religious, where you sign the contract as well, or a civil with a justice of the piece. I have only been to religious. I know Sophie didn't say anything when she put Edward's ring on.

As Kate will probably follow the tradition of the bridal bouquet being placed at the Tomb of the Unknown, it will most probably be large.

But who knows....

You would probably be surprised to learn that a lot of single men slip on a wedding ring when they go out to the clubs because a lot of women are drawn to the ring, flirt outragiously with the supposed "married" men with the idea that they can have a no strings one nighter. It can be quite an effective tool in pulling for the night.

Really, I find that kind of pathetic and scary to say the least....
