Would you tell anyone you'd been invited? I wouldn't.

Prince Charles is keeping his reception a secret..... hope to see some major jewels out that night.
I rather doubt if one had that they would announce it? Maybe. I don't think so though.

An Observation



It has been about 4 1/2 busy and exciting months since the engagement of William and Catherine was announced.

One would have to be a truly hard-boiled republican not to be extremely impressed by their obvious care and attention to detail in setting forth a pathway toward their future. We have seen this in the way they have managed their joint appearances and right down to the smallest details of the wedding choices of which we have read. They have managed to keep the attention on themselves in a positive manner (to such an extent that the embarrassing light cast on the Duke of York's activities has thankfully receded to the back pages). William's triumph in New Zealand and Australia showed his maturity and professionalism, yet he radiated a youthful and fresh vigor. Catherine's deportment has been elegant, polished, and altogether correct, yet at the same time accessible. And I think they exude a lovely chemistry together.

For people like most of us forumees who understand the value of royalty, this is cause for a real celebration! They seem professional and thoroughly modern, yet respectful of the traditions they will one day embody.

Aren't we all fortunate!

So NBC back here in the States WILL BE covering the wedding starting at 3AM CST (Chicago). They will also have an Inside the Royal Wedding documentary to air that week. MSNBC will cover the wedding. ABC and CBS will too, but not as extensive as NBC. I am sure as with Diana and Sarah's weddings, and since all three networks have their morning shows on anyway, they will have coverage. Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight will also have coverage.

For those with cable, satellite, etc., BBC America will exclusively cover, uniterrupted, the feed from BBC...so the entire time will be all royal wedding, all day!!!!!!!!

How Will We Celebrate the Wedding?

First thanks to Lady Marmalade for the info! I was wondering where I would be able to watch. I'll have to get up at 2 a.m., since I am in US Mountain Time.

I watched the Diana/Charles wedding with a group of friends when I lived in LA. We had a great sleepover at my house. It was so much fun!

But now that I live in Jackson Hole, a mountain/ski resort, I have so far located only one fellow royalist, so I may have to have my own party! I enjoyed hearing that the Prime Minister and his wife are having their own street party...!

It would be fun if other forum members would tell us all how, or if, you plan to watch and/or celebrate the wedding. At least I would enjoy hearing from everybody!

I really liked the low key stag/hen parties. I've never understood the other kind in the first place. One's relationship to one's friends usually changes after marriage (especially if you have royal duties to perform), so it should be a time to simply enjoy friends one last time before the duties kick in.

I can't tell whether Prince William had a stripper or not, but even if he did, it's great that it wasn't in some drunken public setting where it would be all over the news. One of the biggest challenges of his life is going to be providing his family with a modicum of privacy.

A bit of mystery around a royal family is always a good thing, and this young couple seems to know that. Also, if I were Kate, I'd be upset if the drunken stripper public stag party were publicized just before the wedding, it seems so demeaning to the bride.

I've seen footage of hen parties at bars, too (my little sister did something like that - I guess I'm just too much older than she to really get into it, although it was certainly memorable).

Quiet hen party sounds just right to me.

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.

Project Runway Designers' Wedding Dresses for Kate Middleton - William & Kate Official Site | myLifetime.com

I think Daniel Franco's would look great with some cap sleeves. I like that he chose white daffodils as her bouquet, as they are the national symbol of Wales, and with her marriage she will be a princess of Wales. I'd like to think that in her actual bouquet, we might see a nod like that.

I also liked Leanne Marshall's design as well. Very dramatic.

I am hoping for shades of blue!
I'm with you there on having some shades of blue! Maybe if the younger bridesmaids had cream silk dresses with delphinium blue sashes and the maid of honor had a bue dress it would be wonderful.

I wonder what her "going away" dress will be like! There's a different thought!

Crown Princess Mary's bridesmaids and attendants wore bright pink, and I thought combined with the bright-colored flowers in the church, it was very striking.

Newspapers had reported that the Middletons were angry that Haley had advertised the event so widely in neighbouring villages and publicly discussed his invitation.

“It’s all hearsay and bad journalism,” said Haley. “It’s all great news and there are no problems.

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.

So who was there? The Telegraph has a list of possibilities:


"a list of possibilities" ! why even bother, aren't they reporters? sorry, unnecessary rant.

I liked the colors, but their dresses were more "gowny". I would love a splash of color for this wedding but for some reason can't picture it.

now, I'd love to see some of the pictures of the actual day, even if wider shoots. I imagine the palace'll looks even more regal

Those were the only 2 I liked as well! They are very nice designs

We do not know who has been invited. Confirmed guest replies are posted in the closed pre-wedding thread.
