With all the tradition, Kate and William are confident to put their own stamp on the day – which actually is what I love about any wedding! What do you hope will occur?
Our group predicts:
Ms Polka Dot: I don’t keep in mind considerably of Princess Diana and Charles’s wedding, the modern day fairytale of Princess Mary and Frederick in Denmark is the 1 I keep in mind staying up for and really becoming aware sufficient of what was taking place to soak it in. I predict that Kate and Prince William’s wedding will be a lot more influential than anyone has predicted- in small approaches also- the specifics, the order of the ceremony, the words chosen.
I predict Kate and Prince William will have a lot of private touches throughout the day- though these might not be important or even noticed by the media and the thousands of eyes upon them. I’m predicting Kate to put on a gown with sleeves(not full, but covering the shoulders) and a thing unexpected and fashion forward- really sleek, structured and stylish but with the traditional protocol that is called for. A bouquet of roses (a nod to Diana and English blooms) and gardenias. I predict Kate will put on a minimal tiara but include fresh blooms in her hair. William, I predict will be wearing a grey morning suit.
I’d enjoy to see the bridesmaids in a lovely taupe colour or slate blue but believe some thing spring like will ultimately be the winner. The wedding will be a nod to Britain with numerous classic English blooms and flowers utilized all through.
Ms Paisley: Gown: will be ivory and structured but not fussy or too overwhelming. It will have a train, but it will be of a a lot more practical length
Hair: half up, half down – will be able to accommodate a tiara and a veil but will nonetheless look soft and romantic.
Flowers: English roses and perhaps a nod to Wales with some white daffodils.
A thing old: I’d like to see her carry one thing individual from her family members – possibly a piece of household heirloom jewellery like a bracelet or a locket that can be attached to the bouquet
A thing new: the gown of course
Some thing borrowed: a diamond tiara from the royal collection
Some thing blue: the sapphire engagement ring of course!
Ms Stripey: I predict that there will be pale green or blue included in the wedding colours. Also lots of white flowers. Her gown will be simple and fairly slinky – not like a cream puff at all, and not also much skin showing. Honeymoon will be in a place that no-one has guessed.

Ms Floral: I adore, enjoy, enjoy jewellery (which is very unfortunate for my bank account!) so I’m quite excited to see what pieces Kate will put on tomorrow. I’m thinking she will be borrowing some of the household jewels, and my suspicion is she could even put on Diana’s sapphire necklace and earrings that match her engagement ring. I don’t assume Kate will disappoint no matter what she chooses and she’s absolutely going to sparkle!
Ms Gingham: As with so a lot of factors in life, the royal wedding has come total circle. I don’t forget becoming in early main school when Charles and Diana’s wedding preparations were in total swing. I have some vivid memories of this time in the early 1980′s.
There was a permeating sense of anticipation, even even though I don’t think we kids had any thought who Charles and Diana truly were. All we knew was that a prince and princess had been getting married … how exciting! At school, we were provided a song to discover in honour of the occasion, printed on the old purple printer with the smell of methylated spirit nonetheless fairly vivid in my thoughts … “Charlie’s getting married, at last. To a beautiful girl with no a (and I don’t keep in mind the rest due to the fact my brother utilized to replace the next words with a thing rude).
Just like now with Kate Middleton’s dress, back then, the query on everyone’s lips was what will she be wearing? I remember seeing a report on the news about the hundreds of silk worms that were busily spinning the silk that was going to be utilized to make the fabric for Diana’a wedding dress. I was amazed … you mean silk comes from worms???
Then, all too soon, we were watching the wedding on T.V. A true princess was acquiring married to her prince. Confident, he wasn’t quite handsome, but we didn’t genuinely see that. He was a real, live prince! And didn’t he appear like one in his regal attire, waiting nervously for his bride at the altar.
I couldn’t get more than the hoards of folks lining the streets to get a glimpse of Diana. She was in the royal carriage, waving to the crowds. To me, she looked complete of joy and a small bit nervous. But most importantly, to my young eyes she was so beautiful. Then she was walking down the aisle, in that enormous dress with the longest train ever. No wonder they necessary all these silk worms! All I could believe of was how lucky she was to be wearing that gorgeous dress and to be marrying a prince. There was no query that they would live happily ever immediately after.
I believe that absolutely everyone about the globe, young and old were thinking that. Right after they had been married, on the balcony waving out to the enormous crowd and having their very first kisses, we were filled with such joy for them and hope for the rest of us. And I guess that is what a royal wedding represents … hope.
These days, we’ve learnt a lot about life. We saw how it ended for Charles and Diana and we can’t help but think that some had been luckier than other individuals in the outcome.
But now, right here is Prince William. We saw him grow up. From the 1st photos of him as a child sucking on Diana’s tiny finger, to the genuinely handsome prince he has become these days. We have seen his romance with Kate Middleton go by way of it’s trials and tribulations. This is a couple we can determine with. They aren’t picture ideal, they’re human just like the rest of us. So, will Kate be wearing the picture excellent dress just like her mother in law did?
Right here is what I predict. I would like to believe that Kate will be wearing a dress that we can all identify with. I picture her in a straight gown, hugging her silhouette with minimal embellishment. I feel she will be regal in her train. It will be extended just like Diana’s was. In my thoughts the only flowers she could have would be roses, complete of fragrance and pale in colour. Her tiara will be the identical one Diana was wearing all those years ago.
Beyond this, what I do hope, is that the union of Prince William and Kate Middleton will be filled with enjoy and happiness. I hope that they will be a couple that our young children, who will be watching with the identical excitement and wonder as we did, can look up to, and 1 day hope to emanate. For even via natural disasters, recessions and death, that is what a royal wedding represents … hope.
