What are you thinking of putting as your dress code? I've been looking for examples and there seems to be a lot of invites that don't specify.. There seems to be two schools of thought on including it or not, let alone how to word it!

Otherwise, I think your invitation reads very well... How are you going with enclosures?


After discussing with FH and my parents, we decided not to include dress code in the invites because 1) There isn't much space left :lol: 2) We're pretty much assuming that people will be sensible enough not to wear shorts or thongs to a cathedral wedding? 8O Enclosures, haven't thought of that yet.. will let you know when we come to that in the next few weeks :)

Jade, I thought I could just leave out FH's parents names from the invites but I wanted to include my parents since they've contributed towards our wedding but FH feels it funny if it's only one sided.. and mum reckons my leaving FH's parents out could essentially provoke them.. so.. :roll: Not worth that stress.

Argh, I'm so sad I have to be stuck at work still, I wanna watch William and Kate's wedding too!

I agree! The Royal Wedding has given me heaps to think about for my wedding. Though, I am kinda having a bit of dress any! Her dress was SO BEAUTIFUL! Not OTT at all. Very elegant.

Yeh.. I can see lace tops coming back in fashion again after tonight! I'm still not convinced it's for me though. My mum was trying to persuade me to get a lace bolero for my dress 'cos she thinks my dress is "too revealing" for church... LOL...

I am dark.

I have had my eye on a lace overlay for months now. Now people will think I copied Kate! Not fair! I have to decide whether I will just suck it up or change my vision of my dress :(

Just go with your vision, L.I.W! The lace overlay is not unique to Kate's dress anyway. It's been done by thousands of brides before her.

I agree! :D Grace Kelly's dress was somewhat similar too.

OMG, am I the only one who thinks that Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie committed a fashion faux pas?! What on earth was Bea wearing on her head?!?!?!?! 8O 8O 8O

Haha my FMIL and I just burst out laughing when we saw her hat.
Kats sister was STUNNING though, I would personally pick her dress as a wedding dress over Kates. I did like Kates as well, she looked stunning. Pretty much what I expected to be honest, although I did think she would have a super long train. I'm glad she didn't!!

I agree Pippa looked amazing! Loved her dress so much, sadly it would be very unforgiving on my short and somewhat fat form!

I think she looked like a classy bride. Not to over the top very classic. I loved the top half of the dress, I had just said to my sister she would wear a vintage style with lace and got it in one LOL
Not a big fan of the bottom part of the dress, but I think it suited her well.
My dress has lace :roll: not on the sleaves tho :D

You think you have problems! My current favourite dress - before the royal wedding, is the same as hers but with capsleeves!

Hope I find out it looks awful on me! But I don't think it will :( Hopefully in a year people won't think I copied her!

Agreed!! You want it go get it there will be plenty of chicks that will order knock offs, I am sure yours will be classy :wink:

We tried on wedding bands yesterday :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
FH was more fussy than me! He is getting a call tomorrow on prices for 3 as his will be smaller than the ones on display.
WIth mine they had one similar in store but as I have to have the groove cut out for my ER it will be diff. Also the band will be thicker, more diamonds also
Not that I can complain :heart:
