True on both points but hate me if you must but if there's a second dress then god dammit I'll be mad if we don't see it I've had both my church dress and reception dress picked out since I was 11 years old so you can tell how much I LOVE weddings! Which could explain why I'm slightly obsessed about knowing every little detail about this one.

Oh trust me I will be eyeballing every bit of coverage there may be to get a peep at the second dress myself!

I still have a gut feeling that perhaps what Kate will do is have a main dress (perhaps even strapless) which will serve wonderfully for a private reception. To make the dress more regal and suitable for Westminster Abbey, she'd have sort of an overdress type thing that has the sleeves and the long train.

But then again... if she has two different dresses, it gives the both of them an excuse to slip away for a while and um... change.

I don't think I have seen the article posted, but don't check this thread everyday.

I find it interesting that they are putting all the blame on Kate. Last I check it is usually two people who get married. I find it sad that apparently Courtiers pick the cakes etc not the bride and groom. Or I am reading way too much into the comment made by the cake person.

There could be many reasons why this place wasn't picked. They could just not like the place for some reason. They could have the cake already picked out.

Doesn't Kate's brother James do cakes? Perhaps he's making up an extra special one for the wedding.

Chelly totally agree with your statment, there are two people going into this marriage, William and Kate, so it can't just be Kate that's making all the calls. So why are they always blaming Kate.

When I have been reading the articles about the kids that have been choosen, they say that the boys that have been choosen are supporters of William, now does that mean that they will walk down the isle with Kate holding the hads of the bridesmaids like we have seen with other royal weddings or will they be with Harry and William up at the alter waiting for Kate to arrive?

I'm not sure this article is correct because I thought that chefs from the forces cooked the royal wedding cakes? I am sure that the Royal Navy made Andrew and Sarah's wedding cake because there was a news report about it and I saw them pouring bottles on Navy Rum in the mix!?

I see no surprises in their choices for groomsmen or bridesmaids. I would expect William to include Spencer family members. It was his mother family so it's normal to invite them. On the other hand people often choose as best man or maid of honor own siblings if they have any or close relatives, or best friends, so again no surprise that Kate chose Pipa, and William chose Harry.

According to wikipedia several groups took part including the Naval Armed Forces, the company mentioned in the article and others. Though it goes to say they had 27 where the article saids 11. So I have no idea who is correct, I can't check my books at the moment but I am sure someone will correct me before I get a chance.

I am not sure how accurate this article could be. It is from NDTV.com, which is an India based news channel.

Isn't that generally the case in royal weddings?
All of Diana's attendants were there through their connection with Charles, weren't they?

Kate's probably lucky she was allowed to have Pippa instead of Beatrice or Zara!

Muriel, my comment is very straight forward. It is a royal wedding from beginning to end. William is the royal and has more say in things. So, let's be honest, OK?

I would hate to think your statement ture. I would hope that all decisions are being made by both of them. While I'll agree that it is a royal wedding and protocal is being follwed as far as the members of the wedding party and so on..so lets be honest enough to say we really don't know.

I quite agree with Lady Ann. Whilst royal protocal will no doubt need to be followed, I would hope that the couple together are making a number of the key decisions.

Has anyone considered that maybe Kate actually wanted those people who have been chosen to be bridesmaids etc, just because they are from William's family/group of friends doesn't necessarily mean Kate is being forced into having them involved in the wedding or that she had no say etc.

Maybe she is eprfectly happy with these particular people & knows them herself, seeing as she has been dating William for a number of years & attended various family/friend's events over the years I'd say it's fairly safe to assume that she knows at least some of the people chosen as bridesmaids/other attendents etc & has some kind of acquaintance/relationship with them herself.

Wrong; it is your opinion that it is William's wedding. I say that it is their wedding, or is he marrying himself?

I think that your comment is very presumptuous. Only because William is the royal and royal protocol has to be followed doesn't automatically mean that he has more say in things and/or that his opinion counts most to make decisions final.
You make it sound like she has to be at his beck and calling and should be happy with whatever preference of hers is included at all.
