More than likely everyone will be invited, don't know if they'll attend though.

Richard Palmer from Daily Express just posted on his twitter that according to his sources still no designer has been chosen. Well I thought the article was pretty legit that it was especially with what the spokeswoman said.

I would be shocked if they didn't hold it at Westminister Abbey. Kate already has Diana's ring; the Royal Family is clearly aiming towards tradition. It is really the only logical place for the wedding.

It isn't the only logical place for a wedding, it's IMO a horrible place for this wedding.
Just because she had Diana's ring means she must get married at Westminster?
Tradition for what?

IMO Mario Testino will be William's first choice. He seems to have a good rapport with him.
Is Lord Snowdon actually still working?? The last pics I saw of him he seemed very frail and was walking with a cane.

Why is it a horrible place for this wedding for you? Because of Diana, Princess of Wales's funeral?

I think with asking for charitable donations, it would be nice way of asking them not to gift the 6m rainbow diamonds but rather make a donation of their choice instead. I really admire William and Kate for this decision and I also expect the average citizen who would send the couple a gift even in these strapped times to donate also. I think we can probably count this as the first charitable joint venture of the royal married couple.

I admire and applaud William and Kate for this decision to ask for donations to charity rather than gifts. It would be nice to think that the consortium of Arabs who want to give them those diamonds will give 50 million pounds to charity instead, but somehow I don't think it will happen.

But why? It's traditional for members of the RF to be married there; Charles and Diana actually broke with tradition when they chose St. Paul's instead.

Nor do I see why they should hesitate because Diana's funeral was held in the Abbey. Many people are christened, married, and buried from their own parish church, and they don't suffer any trauma because some other members of the family had funeral services there.

I'd love it if either Michelle Obama or Jill Biden attended.

President Lyndon Johnson sent his daughter Lynda to a Royal wedding as his representative back in the 1960's..(Anne-Marie and Constantine of Greece)...this while the Vietnam war was raging and there were civil rights and student riots. Lynda was not pals with any of the Greek royals, but the American President had been invited and he sent his daughter.

If the Obamas are invited, I see no problem with the First Lady accepting the invitation.

This is not a State wedding,and the Obama's are not personal friends of the RF. If they were to be invited, then all heads of state would also have to be invited.

I hope Oldfield is not the designer. He is so over the top IMO. I haven''t seen one dress he has designed that I liked, including the ones he designed for Diana. I don't think they suited her as well as Emanuel's designs or other designers that she favored.

I agree, on both points.

I like Oldfield's designs, but he's talked a fair bit about his work with Diana. I think that Kate would go for a more discrete designer.
