'Cause you know I'm showing up in a tiara for the ceremony and changing into my outfit + fabulous "wedding hat" for the afters. :D What's a production without a costume change?

I am so in love with my hat! :swoon: Philip Treacy, eat your heart out.

;)

(In fact, it MIGHT be the day to pull out the high drag again.......though I would have to start beating my face at 3am! :yikes: )

I think the more important question is what tiara am I going to be wearing when I go to the party to watch the wedding. That's really what my friends are talking about. 'Cause you know I'm showing up in a tiara for the ceremony and changing into my outfit + fabulous "wedding hat" for the afters. :D What's a production without a costume change?

Personally, I'm going to have a heck of a time explaining my proper shantung suit and classic pumps on casual Friday. I'll probably just go with the fascinator. It's bad form to detract from the bride.

For me, it's not about the clothes (other than ruthless critiquing of the wedding party and attendees - dare we hope for a Fashion Police special report??) - it's about the food.

I'm purposely indulging in the day at home, where I can focus 100% on the wedding, and my menu :) Although once hubby heard about my plans, he decided to take the day off too. Our anniversary is the next day, so we're making it an all wedding weekend and will be ignoring all the last minute election coverage.

I have the menu all planned out except for one thing - a feature cocktail before dinner. I have a bottle of St Germain that I've been saving (OK it's French, but it's elderflower) and I'm thinking something with lavender, which I can snip fresh from my garden. If anyone has any ideas or recipes, please do share.

Oh, and Fergus we need to see a picture of your hat, stat.

Can't wait to watch it all on TV :) Finally something happy-ish to bring people together in front of the TV, instead of a tragedy.

More TV coverage of the Royal Wedding:

Kathy Griffin to Host Royal Wedding Special for TV Guide Network (http://www.tvguide.com/News/Kathy-Griffin-Royal-Wedding-1031240.aspx)
Anderson Cooper, Piers Morgan, Cat Deeley to host CNN Royal wedding coverage (http://www.examiner.com/tv-over-20-in-national/anderson-cooper-piers-morgan-cat-deeley-to-host-cnn-royal-wedding-coverage)

In order for Americans to watch the Royal wedding live, they will have to get up early no matter where they live. Coverage will begin on CNN at 4 a.m. ET, but the wedding is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. London time which will be 6 a.m. on the American East coast and even earlier on the West coast.
Royal wedding TV coverage will be on overload (http://www.aikenstandard.com/Entertainment/0218-royal-wedding)

A Lifetime movie, a show that brings wedding fanatics from the U.S. over to London and a TLC special on hoarders of royal memorabilia are all in the works. These run-up shows are in addition to the anticipated exhaustive coverage of the April 29 wedding itself by news programs.
TLC Plans Royal Wedding Coverage, USA Orders Two Series and More (http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/01/19/tlc-plans-royal-wedding-coverage-usa-orders-two-series-and-more/)

TLC will also broadcast the wedding live.

I have a cookie, almost a shortbread actually, recipe that calls for Organic Rose Water in it. I can't see why you couldn't switch out that for the Lavender. I also have a friend that puts Lavender in her Scones for the big Family events in the Spring. There's a couple of Birthdays they all gather for, as well as for Easter, so she makes these for those get togethers.

Anyway...There's a couple of ideas for you. :)

I think I might make the Queen's Chocolate Biscuit cake which is one of the royal wedding cakes.

Yes I think I will go that route - shortbread cookies with lavender sound like a good idea for the Scottish reference. I also have the Savoy's scone recipe (light and fluffy - I don't like the dry hard little scones with raisins), and am planning my first attempt at a proper Victoria Sandwich Cake.

For the cocktail, I remembered a suitable (and entirely delicious) one from a very cool cocktail lounge in New York, and happily found the recipe online. It's an Earl Grey Martini - Earl Grey infused gin, lemon, simple syrup and egg white - perfect!

I apologize in advance for being computer illiterate and unable to post links here. Will someone who knows what they are doing please post a link to the GE commemorative refrigerator. It has to be seen to be believed. It's your very own fridge with life-size picture of the happy couple on the front.

I thought this (http://www.tedbaker.com/women%27s/royal_wedding/92397-royal_printed_scarf/detail.aspx?pfm=browse) was a tacky kleenex box cover. :yikes:
