I for one am glad that they chose the ones they chose...

Soccer is a game for 22 people that run around, play the ball, and one referee who makes a slew of mistakes, and in the end Germany always wins.

Yes, protocol and tradition plays a large part. Maybe one day someone will design an invitation that conforms to protocal and tradition with a little twist.

From what we've been seeing here, in bits and pieces, the royal invitations are made by a special engraving process that is at least a couple of centuries old. I expect it's expensive enough just to have best quality card stock. Adding furbeloes to those traditional invitations just doesn't seem right - but I keep hearing that Kate doesn't want a terribly extravagant wedding (!)

I was wondering how much professional calligraphers might charge in the U.K. to address all those invitations - it's quite expensive here. The personalized touch of writing in each invitee's name is well worth it, I think, but I doubt that those companies who cater to we common folk would find it hard to allow for such an option (the paper has to be just right - it cannot be to thin and porous).

Myself, I would have been ecstatic with the invitations that they chose.

I personally liked William and Catherine's wedding invitations. Victoria and Daniel's, too!

Are there any pictures of Frederick and Mary's, and William-Alexander and Maxima's wedding invitations?
