ETA: so I watched the TLC special tonight(first off I have to say I'm sorry but I can't upload it or atleast not right now I'm WAY too busy with school, maybe later..) but we got to see inside BP and it was cool to finally see how the wedding breakfast/reception will look like. In all honestly it's MUCH bigger then it looks in the pictures.
I saw the programme as well but I wasn't very impressed. Like many of these supposedly news based pieces, there was very little content and lots of silly music and 'highlights to come' coupled with repetitious intros.
The shots of BP were very nice.
But few if any if the people they spoke with really had solid facts or were directly involved.
Nothing to cry about if you missed it.

Well, I always thought fruitcake was GROOM'S cake. My wedding cake was a white cake with white and blue buttercream frosting...YUMMO!

U.K. Royal Wedding Threatened By Anarchists
Quote:
LONDON -- Scotland Yard is bracing to fend off possible security threats to the royal wedding from groups that range from terrorists to anti-monarchists.
The announcement Monday came only days after a peaceful demonstration Saturday against government spending cuts was disrupted by violence. Police made more than 200 arrests as the march drew 250,000 people to London, the largest protest in Britain since the Iraq war.

We had an Italian Cream cake for the brides cake, (main cake) with fresh flowers all over it. The grooms cake was chocolate with chocolate covered strawberries on top and around the bottom. I thought both were beautiful, and delicious.

I like Italian deserts, I could eat tiramisu until the cows come home, but I think I'd have been diving into the groom's cake, especially with the chocolate covered strawberries. now that is my idea of a fruit cake.

Rossop, you're not prematurely old; you're steeped in tradition!

I can't believe fruitcake is the norm for wedding cakes. It's usually a Christmas tradition over here. A bride and groom would be laughed at over here if they had a fruitcake wedding cake.

Here a fruitcake would be used for weddings, Christmas and special milestone birthdays as well in many cases or other special celebrations e.g. I belong to an organisation that has formal installation ceremonies when we change our office bearers and we always have a decorated fruit cake for that event as well.

Having got the instruction book they aren't that hard - once I figure out what ply 'DK' wool is I will begin knitting some of the figures.

What I especially like is the inclusion of extra dresses and even plain suits so a person could extend the party beyond just the key figures.

So cute, I love they included the corgies. The priest kind of reminds me of a cartoon character, well more than the others, that is.

Re the Yankee candle Royal Wedding yes it's available here. Go online to Yankee candles. It's also on the uk website along with (of course) loads of fab fragrances unavailable in the us. And the uk website doesn't ship to the us. Aaargj! It's bad enough I ship Fairy liquid over now I have to schlepping candles back too???

That program last night did mention the use of flowers which represented different UK countries but nothing more exotic. No leeks!

Oh, I'm disappointed. Could start a new fashion trend, edible bouquets.

I admire your talent! You will have to post a pic when you complete one.
