I think she will too. Somehow a strapless dress doesn't seem to be proper for Westminster Abbey. At least the shoulders should probably be covered.
Seeing that strapless wedding gowns really seem to be in vogue right now, there's a few very elegant strapless gowns that also have a lace overdress or bodice that would make it appropriate for a church wedding. I really think Kate would look wonderful in antique lace. Especially with a tiara.

She isn't marrying in a Cathedral. She is marrying in an Abbey. Westminster Cathedral is the Roman Catholic Cathedral whilel the Abbey is CoE. The Cathedral is barely 100 years old.

Sorry, I meant the Abbey. Westminster Abbey. I expect the same sort of protocol would still apply as they would at an Anglican Cathedral like St. Paul's Cathedral.

Anarchist groups threaten to target Royal Wedding - Telegraph

Never had this trouble before. I doubt this would have happened under Gordon BROWN.

*Sigh*. What a shame. They've seen all the attention the Charles & Camilla incident received, and have now decided that going after the royals is the way to go.

I sincerely hope they don't disrupt the wedding or any other events, and I certainly hope they don't hurt anyone.

It sounds like that is exactly what they are going to try and do. I don't like the sounds of this group. They are nothing but a bunch of immature irrational thugs.

I think it's mostly "talk" since they've seen the attention paid to Charles and Camilla. Surely security will be strict.

How utterly intelligent of them to tell their plans out in the open four months ahead of the royal wedding! Surely the police are going to go into hiding quaking in their boots and the wedding be canceled! If anything, this gives a heads up to security on how to possibly handle such a situation. Hopefully by April, this will have all died down to a low roar and things will be peaceful and joyous for the wedding.

As its often been said: One can never make a stupid person do an intelligent thing.

The ones I'd worry about are the violent anarchists.

I doubt she'll choose a strapless dress, but I think they are too much in vogue, to the point where they're getting passe. They've been popular all through the last decade, and I don't find them flattering except in rare cases.
Kate can have anything she wants, so why choose the same old strapless style that everybody and her sister has?
Let's face it, seen one, seen them all!
I would hope she'd go for something more innovative.

She can't be too innovative. If she were marrying someone else, she absolutely could, but she's marrying the future King of England. I agree, I'd love to see something like what CP Mary wore or even something like CP Victoria's dress as both were very elegant, classy and not strapless ( ), but yet something still with her mark on it.

I would love to see a more 'sparkly' version of Princess Mary's dress.

We have seen pictures of Catherine in evening robes. I don't follow her fashion thread, but I can't remember that she ever wore a strapless gown, and if she did, that was rather the exception. Imo this shows that she's not all that fond of strapless dresses. So why would choose a strapless wedding dress?
And than she does not come across as a rebel, who sets out to push any limits with her outfits. Her dress sense and style always showed how she tries to look fashionable, yet appropriate. So why would she suddenly give up this policy and risk being criticized for going strapless?
My answer to this is: she won't, and it will be her own preference to put some form of on sleeves on her dress.

I would love to see susan boyle sing at the royal wedding, but after she choked singing O Holy Night recently, I don't think it likely.

Yikes! If Kate walked down the aisle in one of those ugly wedding dresses I think I would be scarred for life. Nothing againest Bruce Oldfield, but well, he is old.... and a man. I think Kate will surprise us with someone else. Phillipa lepley has my vote.

WoW! I think that is the first time I have ever heard of anyone criticising the Spencer tiara on Diana. I really wonder why you think it looked heavy? I thought it was lovely. her hair drooped a bit but that was probably due to humidity.

No. Please No! No more boring royal wedding dresses. CP Victoria's was bad enough (not to mention the cameo tiara). Diana's, while not the best, was at least memorable. I wan't something grand..... Sarah's was by far the best of the bunch with all the bling and a detailed train. JMHO
