I totally agree. It surprised me at first, but I'll bet it will look great! It's something different so....... I am all for different when it comes to weddings. I'm sure there will be plenty of flowers too. I just hope there is some color in there somewhere. To me, there is nothing more boring than all white weddings or white and cream.... I like color. However, it isn't my big day, so I say, let her have what ever she wants as long as the dress is awesome

No, because for one the BRF and the SRF do weddings differently and have different traditions and two, William isn't the heir to the throne, even if they did do something like that.

speaking of tea towels............ Do Royals give out wedding favors to their guests? I saw on ebay several years ago silver wine goblets that were supposed to be favors from Princess Anne's and Mark Phillips wedding.... Any word on Will & Kate's wedding favors?

This is getting exciting. My husband is ready to commit Hari Kari.
Trees in the Abbey. Hmm. I have a good feeling that this is going to look beautiful, to give the place a less "funeral" feel to it.

Kate and William are at Westminster Abbey going through final rehearsal. The DM has a few photos of them in the car.

There are quite a few people already camped out.

With regard to the trees, I love the idea - admittedly without actually seeing the finished effect. I love the idea because it is unusual, different and has never been done inside the Abbey before (although I suspect that they have a large Christmas tree there each year like other cathedrals etc). I like trees and so for a trees-in-the-Abbey-lover, I'm happy. However, for some people it's a whacky/strange/hokey idea to bring a load of giant trees indoors instead of just having flowers and the no-trees-in-the-Abbey people are perfectly entitled to that opinion in exactly the same way as my opinion. Opinions differ and it's all down to a question of personal tastes and expectations....erm....provided the squirrels and birds are removed ;-)

As with everything at this wedding, there is a cost and I am sure things will be done to balance necessity and cost as much as possible. As (I think) most if not all the elements of the wedding are being bought and paid for in the UK, whether the costs is high or small the money is going into people's pockets and businesses as wages etc and will be recycled as spending, so scaling up or down on the wedding will have the same result.

I thought they had already had their 'stag' and 'hen' dos? The one William commented that the media were left in the dark about.

.. in that case, it would be an exceptional bad idea ... they have to start early on there wedding day ... and no one once to see them with a hangover

It used to be the case that it was the night before but, certainly in England (happy for differing opinions) people tend to now do something in advance. My sister in law is getting married in June, the hen weekend is next weekend and the stag weekend is the following week. Gives plenty of time to recover.

I was married 10 years ago and we had a 'hag' party (we combined the hen and stag party as we are the type of couple that would rather do things together) the week before we married.

Royal Wedding: Kate Middleton, Prince William's Wedding Vows : People.com
I don't think they would write thier own vows but it appears to say "The wearing of...." which leads me to think ring.

Just a dinner for members of the British Royals and the foreign royals. Its a private affair hosted by Lady Anson and Charles, Camilla, William, Harry and Kate WILL NOT be in attendance.

Just the Queen (who is a pretty good guest to have), the DoE (him as well), the Duke of York, Princesses Beatrice, Eugenie, Princess Anne and Tim, and the Dukes and Duchess of Kent and Gloucester. Including Prince & Princess Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra.

In addition to that, according to Prince Radu of Romania, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester will host a lunch for the foreign Royals attending the wedding and others (such as Prince Radu) at Kensington Palace, tomorrow.
