Hello, All! Cheers to a long holiday weekend! And cheers also to the fact that we’re now officially just one week away from what many are calling the wedding of the century – the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. Unless you’ve been living a completely media-free existence for the last several months, you know that the ceremony will take place one week from today on April 29 with most coverage starting around 4 a.m. (EDT). And if you’re like me, despite the early timing for those of us on this side of the pond, you’ll be watching all of the pomp and circumstance live while nestled on the couch in your pj’s. (I have to admit though, now that my 13-month-old is finally sleeping through the night on a consistent basis I really hate the idea of waking myself up on purpose in the wee hours of the morning but I’m willing to do it just for this.) After months of talk and speculation I just cannot wait to see the festivities and of course Kate’s wedding gown! What in the world will it look like?! Will it be classic and elegant or more modern and striking?! Will it have a long train, lots of embellishment and frill, or be more clean and sleek-looking?! And who is the designer behind this infamous gown? So many questions, but now only one week to go until we finally have some answers and get to see what could be referred to as the “wedding dress of the century.” Whatever the look, the dress is sure to be much talked about and I cannot wait to take in all of the coverage. Speaking of coverage, I found this handy list compiled by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram which shows the schedule of coverage that is planned by all of the major news and cable channels to help you determine just what channel you’ll want to tune into on the big day. For official news and information on the wedding, you can also check out www.officialroyalwedding2011.org. So here’s to one more week of exciting anticipation of the Royal Wedding. Enjoy the fun, and if you’ll be watching the festivities next week, happy viewing!
The Countdown is on for the Royal Wedding…and the Reveal of that Dress!
