I'll be drinking it alone because my husband will sleep right through everything, and then he'll get up and go to the office...

I'm relatively new to this lovely valley I live in, and haven't yet found any fellow royalists. But I'll think about all the forumees around the world enjoying it with me. I'm going to watch BBC America and stream the royal channel on my laptop. Overkill? Maybe. Now I just have to figure out what to eat with my champagne! I'll be checking in on forum comments, too, OF COURSE!!!

Enjoy everyone!!!
Oooh, sounds like a great idea, and the thought of sparkling wine while watching the wedding screams decadence!!! LOL

My plan is to begin tomorrow with a royal wedding marathon! Start with Charles & Di, Andrew & Sarah, Edward & Sophie, Charles & Camilla and ending with Victoria & Daniel. I wish I could get a proper, non youtube quality wedding video of Frederik & Mary, Felip & Letizia, Joachim & Marie and Haakon & Mette-Marit, but alas, it is not meant to be. That's ok, I've got plenty of wedding videos to watch to keep me occupied till tomorrow night when live coverage starts!!!!!!! I can't get over the fact the wedding will be in HD!!!! I'm so hyped for this! Is it starting yet?!?!?! LOL

Good call on the mimosa's! That'll give me even more motivation to wake up at 3am (if I ever fall asleep that is).

Is there anything special on at 3? I don't have BBCA so I'll probably be watching CNN

Thinking about getting a fancy rhinestone tiara to complete the festivities... If ever there was a day for a young gay guy (who isn't a drag queen) to wear a tiara, it is this Friday...

Waaaaheeeeeyyyyy, it's tomorrow

Not working my usual midnight to 3am shift so hopefully an early night. Baking all day today so that all the food for brunch and afternoon tea is pretty much ready, so I can then get up at 7.30a.m. get myself ready and basically sit in front of the tv (with laptop to the side with this forum open and iphone at the ready if I have to nip out of the room). OH is primed to do the little bit of necessary cooking.

Think I'm all set??

I was wondering when they were leaving...David was at the laker game last night. You would never think he had a royal wedding to go to:)

Men have it so easy:(
All David had to do is put on a suit. I'm looking forward to seeing what Victoria will wear.

Is there a reason why she's getting dressed at a hotel? I would think she would spend the night before the wedding at the palace and get dressed there.

I'm jealous of you guys having Friday off. I teach all day, AND one of my lectures is being taped. Not a good day for an early wake up call

But the DVR is all set

None of the other brides in the BRF left for either the Abbey or another venue from Buckingham Palace. She may be thinking that because she's not a princess (or duchess/countess) yet, she shouldn't stay at Buckingham Palace yet. I don't know.

I gave notice the second these two got engaged I was all like ya don't know the date is but whenever that is I'm taking the day off. Must think I'm nuts. I'll be making cookies tomorrow. For wedding morning I'll be making coffee. After the balcony appearance when they head for lunch I'll be making pancakes and I'll prob have some cookies afterwards as a snack as I watch all the highlights.

The Queen and Princess Anne both left from BP but you are right if you mean that no other bride who was marrying into the royal family left from the Palace although they didn't leave from an hotel either but from somewhere like Clarence House.
