Has anyone from the board been invited or anyone know of anyone who is directly invited?

I'm a bit picky of an eater, I'm not sure I'd not go hungry from the sound of those canapes. I guess it's a good thing I'm not invited. It definitely is a massive under taking.

But they'll be in good company: A total of 60 people, from chefs to those opening car doors and pouring champagne, will be working at the palace on the big day.

The palace has also confirmed the rooms that will be used for the Queen's reception: The white drawing room, music room, blue drawing room, state dining room and the picture gallery, where the wedding cake will be displayed.

Dear Kate and bridal party ,
Pls do not forget to wear felt on the bottom of your shoes so that you do not slip down the carpet of Westminster Abbey. Thanks

This article has some neat information about the abbey

The Secrets of Westminster Abbey

I like the bit about the different tombs. Martin Luther King is actually a statue above the doors she will enter, among the 20th century martyrs. Or there is only a memorial to Churchill because he refused to be buried there, said no one walks over him. Or while Elizabeth I's tomb is tired and worn, Mary Queen of Scott's is opulent and she looks angelic. It likely has to do with James I, Elizabeth's successor, being Mary's son. I guess if you don't want your tomb to look bad, you shouldn't behead your successor's mother. A lot of great people, even Darwin and Newton, are buried there. I went on a tour, its incredible being in that church.

ghost_night554, a LOT indeed, but I can't even imagine a only "room" able to accommodate 600 people.

I know we have seen so many different dresses sketches, but take a look at these designs by former participants of Project Runaway. some had me seriously LMAO.

Too true. I mean I can understand accommodating them for the actual meal but before that where do they put them all? No wonder they need so many rooms!

Jimmy Kimmel just flat out asked Sharon Osbourne on his show if she was invited to the royal wedding and she said no. I think this was discussed here earlier....

That's not a far fetched idea. That way the bride and party could have something to munch on all day long. Here in the US we do have a popular trend of sending edible arrangements instead of flowers. I've seen a couple of them would absolutely love to get one.

It seems William is serious in leaving the wild bachelor days behind hin. As it seems that catherine and William thought all aspects of their future carefully through, I guess this was another point: the change from young prince to senior Royal and future king. Catherine, while obviously fun to be with, has a distinct understanding of the position of a Royal lady and how to convey this image gracefully in public and I doubt her husband will ever shame her by appearing wild and unreliable himself. A true officer, gentleman and nobleman.

I wquld be inclined to agree with you. It certainly appears a fair amont of thought has gone into their future lives together, as well as the responsibilities their roles will bring. All of this forebodes well.

Some of those are positively comical! I do like the designs of Nick Vereos and Shirin Askari though. Both very regal IMO
I'm crossing my fingers for something lacy rather than plain silk

Does anyone think the bridesmaids will wear a color, or will it be white (cream, ivory, etc.) with just touches of color?
I am hoping for shades of blue!

I'm sure they will both still let their hair down so to speak & have fun with trusted friends etc but be a lot more discreet & private about it than in previous years. And I think that's right & fair for them to be able to do so. Everyone in my opinion, even Royalty, should be allowed to enjoy themselves & have a drink (if they wish) now & then without it being blown out of proportion, but obviously they also have to keep in mind, much more now, their image & how it reflects upon the Monarchy & the country as a whole. So I'm sure they will still get together with their friends & maybe have the odd party & have fun like everyone else does but I doubt they'll be going to the big popular clubs in London as much anymore, I think they'll be keeping all of that side of their lives behind closed doors a bit more & just generally when in public places be seen to be calmer, not so "wild" etc. Just the impression I get from them & their behaviour since the engagement.

I'm not getting married until next year but I'm an avid wedding blog reader :)

Look what I found this morning on one of my faves: Royal Wedding Inspiration from MIMMO and NAZ Photography | Style Me Pretty : The Ultimate Wedding Blog

Personally I think the colours are too dark for an April weddding but overall I like it! Not for this wedding though.. I can see W&K sticking to a very neutral pallete- creams, ivories, maybe a touch of colour here and there but mainly very traditional and not too fussy

ETA- I adore the cake!

With the single days behind them and perhaps settling down and starting a family, I would imagine they'd be more likely to have "house parties" with close friends and keep them totally private. With William in SAR for the next couple years, I can picture them having a few friends from the base over to have a bbq and play cards or whatnot. These two I think are determined to keep their private life to themselves and have the media focus on their public roles which is as it should be.
