Not the Abbey, St Pauls or St Georges Chapel.

As for bridesmaids, Pippa Middleton is a guarentee. Does Catherine have a best friend? If so her.

I didn't know we had a tendency for child bridesmaids. Child flower girls, and page boys, yes.
Well, three middle names is enough already - most of us (at least, as far as I know) have only one or two.

Where do you think they will marry, then? Since you say neither the Abbey nor St. Paul's or St. George's.

I meant to put a full stop not a comma after the Abbey. I think it will either be St Pauls or St George's.

I would like to see Kate with two adult bridesmaids. Pippa and another.

Possible Flower girls:
Lady Louise
Margarita Armstrong Jones
Eloise and Estella Taylor
Lola Parker Bowles
Eliza Lopes

Possible Page Boys:
Viscount Severn
Charles Armstrong Jones
Xan Windsor, Lord Culloden
Albert Windsor

I doubt Zara, Beatrice or Eugenie will be bridesmaids but it would be nice. If she needs attendants who are more minor she might consider Lady Marina Charlotte and Lady Amelia as they are 18 and 15 respectively.

William's godchildren are Prince Constantine Alexios and Grace van Cutsem so they can't be ruled out.

Considering that the British tend to not to send many royals to foreign Royal Weddings I wonder how many royals they'll have? I'm sure this will be the best royal wedding since Charles & Di's because there hasn't been one like that since so there will be all or most crowned heads of states and Crown princes & Crown princess and a lot of princes & princesses.

I also really hope it is a white tie wedding, but I know that it wont be, unless Charles or William & Kate specifically ask the queen to have a white tie wedding.

It most likely won't be white tie

I think most royal houses will go, Crown prince/ss and or the kngs and queens, some of the kings such as King Juan Carlos, are good friends with Charles, so we might see them at the wedding

It is highly unlikely to be a tiara event for the guests as the British royal family favour morning weddings thus hats worn by the ladies

Kate favours the designer Issa who has recently started to design wedding dresses

I also doubt that there will be many heads of states or even heirs to the throne at this wedding after all it is the wedding of the second in line to the throne and unlike the 1981 Charles and Diana event not the heir. It is more likely that royals who are invited will be those with close links such as the greek family etc

We have also forgotten that William has 2 godchildren- Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece (born in 1998 to Crown Prince(s) Pavlos and Marie Chantal) and
Grace Emilie van Cutsem (born in 2007 to Hugh van Cutsem and Rose Astor).

As for a wedding dress... I can not imagine that Kate will choose a non-British designer, especially during current economic times. It's too bad that Catherine Walker passed away recently. I think a Catherine Walker dress would have been just fantastic (remember Lady Helen Taylor's beautiful Walker dress) and another subtle connection to William's mother.

I am not willing to hedge a bet as to where they will marry. I thought when they did decide to wed they would avoid any Diana comparisons and go for Westminster Abbey, but with the choice of ring I think St. Paul's is back in play.

I think Westminster is the most likely venue. St. Paul's is just over the top considering, as some have pointed out...William is merely the heir to the heir at this point. On the other hand St. George's is too small for the same reason. Westminster is a comfortable midway point.

To be white tie, would it not have to be after dark or 5p, whichever comes first?

Could this be right?
Wikipedia says that the Duke of Lancaster is a title held by the ruling monarch, regardless of gender. So currently, Elizabeth holds the title "Duke of Lancaster". I don't know that she'd bestow that title on William, though.

Not necessarily. He wouldn't be the first child to use the ring of a deceased parent or relative. Didn't Camilla's ring used to be the Queen Mother's?

I definitely think the wedding will be very "British", meaning most of the high profile guests will be the Windsors, and British nobility and celebrities. Although to be honest, I do expect the European heirs to attend. It just wldn't be right for them not to attend. I'm finding myself getting strangely excited, I keep imaging Stella McCartney designing the wedding dress. One can only hope!

Forgot to add, I'm nearly certain! one the wee Parker-Bowles/Lopes bubs will be page boys or flower girls. That will be adorable. I think they will go the British and Victoria route with just kids. And as much as I LOVE the abbey, really do, and I do think they will have the wedding there, St. Pauls really is prettier for weddings. There is more light and cathedral is softer.

I don't think Catherine should have Issa design her wedding gown. I think she ought to chose a British designer, not a Brazilian living in the UK. It would help British fashion rather than Brazilian.

Don't forget that Catherine Walker passed away in September, so I don't think it's likely that she'll be designing Kate's wedding dress.

I would love to see the wedding in St. George's Chapel since I love Windsor, but I suspect that Westminster Abbey will be the ultimate site. Yes, there's been some sad moments there, but maybe it's time that the abbey hosted a joyous occasion.

My bet is
Local: Westminster Abbey
Date: Any Saturday in May
Dress: by Stella McCartney (lace)
Tiara: Strathmore
Music: Maybe one special song form Sir Paul McCartney
Not many Kings/Queens will be present, maybe just Greece and Spain, but many crown princes.
