I know the royal wedding is a big deal-to some people. I am not in that "some" category. I refused to watch the major network nightly news the last few days leading up to the wedding because that was three-fourths of the nightly news.
The last straw was when I received a list of royal recipes for people having a royal wedding party of their own. Would you believe a wedding cake martini, royal romance, little princess cocktail and bridesmaid cooler? I eliminated that email instantly.
Prince William and Kate Middleton look like the perfect couple. In the public eye Prince Charles and Lady Diana looked like the perfect couple too, and look what happened to their marriage.
The people of England don't seem to mind what a wedding of this magnitude is costing them either. The estimate is $32 million whereby the average "over the top" U.S. wedding is $27,000 and a celebrity wedding up to $5 million.
With a daughter getting married this summer I should feel good about what we are spending. The royal wedding cake is $80,000, flowers $800,000 (How would you like to own the flower shop that got that order?) and the wedding gown $434,000. But wait, rumor has it that the Middleton's paid for the wedding gown. How generous!
Enough already. As you might guess most of us will be glad when it's over and by the time you read this it will be history. Thank goodness!
