I must admit I find it hard to visualise a dress from the majority of those drawings, they are most peculiar.

Royal sources revealed yesterday that the American President and his wife are not among the congregation as William's wedding to Kate Middleton is not classed as a 'state occasion' - as the Prince is not yet heir to the throne.

The article then points out that the Reagan's were invited to Andrew's wedding and that wasn't a state occasion either.

My thoughts exactly, but they are "peculiar" by very famous "designers". For Kate I would like to see a classic "couturier" content to create the perfect confection to suit his client and bask in the acclaim after the wedding.

That is exactly what I thought as I had only seen stills of the wedding so, with this wedding coming up I decided to check out you tube and saw this fabulous tribute video that made me look at her dress in a whole new way. The flow, the movement, there was just so much more than I had thought going on with that dress.

I don't seem to be able to post the link so . . . if you type in mette marit wedding dress the first entry is:

Crown Princess Mette-Marit. Click on and enjoy!

I enjoyed that very much, Marg. Thanks for posting it. I thought Mette-Marit's dress was just lovely. Simple and classy, and shown off beautifully in the video.

I don't believe it. I say they will be invited. I also noticed this:

And the Archbishop of York compared the wedding to that of a commoner ‘married this afternoon in some small country church’

yeah right!

Who knows?

From what I understand the final guest list hasn't been established and invites are scheduled to go out until January 2011.

I think the wedding is not a state occasion,as William is only second in line to the throne.Probably President Obama couldn't go from economical and security reasons,as example such a trip could be considered by many as unnenecessary luxury.
Michelle Obama may not want to travel without her husband.

They aren't required to invite every head of state or country since this is not a formal "state" wedding. They are keeping a cap on the number of guests invited to keep the costs down. Just because the Regans were invited to Andrews wedding doesn't mean that William and Kate are obligated to invite the Obama's.

Quite possibly. The Obamas are hardly close personal friends of the BRF.

Well, I saw the wedding on tv and I was very disappointed by the dress. I thought and still think it was way too simple for a bride marrying an heir to the throne. It is just not my kind of dress and I did watch your link (thanks for the reference) but my opinion remains the same.

From a woman marrying the heir to the heir of the British Throne I expect something grand, and not something like this.

after looking at all those links to designer sketches, I still say she would look great in a dress that flares from the hips or slightly below. It is all the rage now and no royal bride has ever worn anything like it. Apparently some of the designers think so too.
