So are you actually, really interested in the royal wedding?

I understand the historical significance of this event, and how important it is to the UK. It’s also a great story for the media.

But are you actually, really interested in the royal wedding? How many of you are going to be watching at 6 AM tomorrow morning?

    I'll be interested in the dress and what everyone is wearing.

    i personally don't care about the royal wedding.

    Not me! I'll check out the pictures later though.

    Here in Italy it will broadcasted later in the morning, at about 11 i think… i won't be able to watch it but if i were, i would have watched it… i'm not THAT interested, maybe just curious… who knows :)

    The monarchy is an archaic system. Personally, I find it rather ridiculous that the royal family continues to exist. They serve no purpose besides entertainment and are a drain on taxpayers. While I am American and cannot comment on the historical relevance or public opinion in England, it seems like too much entitlement.

  13. Petey

    April 28, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Count me in! I can't wait to see what lovely Kate will be wearing as she becomes a princess. Stuff of little girls' fairy tales!

    I am more interested in the eligibility of Prince Harry.

    most certainly will !! I will be at the British Institute here if Florence to see it on a huge screen in the Harold Acton library then after the lunch will zip home to see it all agin on the television !!

    Great for them , great for Britain and a great day of celebration in bleak times ENJOY Fay da Firenze x

    Recently there was a royal wedding in Sweden, which I unfortunately didn't have the chance to watch. However, I'm planning to see some of the British one. Sooner or later;)

  19. jessicav

    April 28, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    definitely interested.. but 6am? thats why they invented the DVR!

  20. thobeka

    April 28, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    Not in the least. I'm jusy interested in seeing what her dress looks like, but I have every fashion blog on the planet, as a source for that image :)

  21. linda june

    April 28, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    I have to be honest, the media has given this event so much coverage that I am so done hearing about it. You're right – it is significant and if I was living in the UK then yes I would probably be very intrigued by it. But I don't and I'm not.

  22. Lucy Delaney

    April 28, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    I can honestly say that I am more excited about being the first comment than the royal wedding… I will be up at 6am, but to wash my hair for the work day- ahhhh to be a commoner!

  23. Mo

    April 28, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    Not interested in the slightest, I work in central london and so it's impossible to avoid the hype and media crews. However I live in a quiet street and I don't own a TV so I should be able to avoid the whole thing and have a lovely day tomorrow.

  24. Sara Szatmary

    April 28, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    I am interested. It's a spectacle, for sure, but so fun. Seeing Kate's dress and the style of all the guests will be a blast. I won't watch live, but my DVR will capture every detail :)

  25. Sarah

    April 28, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    My grad school girlfriends and I will be waking up at 3am to watch it together!

  26. Emma

    April 28, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    Yes! I am actually, really, really interested!

  29. Anna

    Not me!

  30. Katie

    April 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Meh. I want to know what her dress looks like, but I am not planning on waking up at 5 am Central Time to see it.

  31. hotpants™

    April 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    I live in the States. I took the day off from work so I could watch. I'm going to set the alarm. I just love the idea of watching something so important. I want to see her dress, his face, The Queen, the men on horses, the parade, all of the outfits and fancy hats… you get the point! :)

  32. Ruth

    April 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Not at all interested. And I got up in the middle of the night in California to watch Princess Di get married. So, it was in me then. Something's changed.

  33. littleoslo

    April 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    totally not! so i would not turn on the tv …

  34. AnJo

    April 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Not at all.
    If it wasnt for The Sartorialist, i actually didn't remember that thr day is tomorrow.

  35. Sara

    April 28, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    I'm very interested in the wedding! Not only am I excited to see the couple and guest's but, the craziness going on in the streets of London. I think it'll be worth turning on your T.V….even if it's just for a few minutes.

  36. Tina Frey Designs

    April 28, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    I didn't think I would be interested but there is something Disney-like about a handsome prince sweeping a "common" girl off her feet (including royal carriage and horses). I find the reporting in the news with all the speculation and embellishments in the stories about Kate and the couple somewhat disturbing, yet entertaining.

    From the sartorial perspective, I personally find Prince William quite handsome to look at! There's something charming about British country fashions…practical rugged boots, woolen sweaters, etc. for horse riding and hunting.

  37. Stella

    April 28, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    i'm more so interested in seeing what all the ppl who have been invited are going to be wearing…oh and DEFINITELY to see what kate's wedding dress looks like!

  38. marissa from the boot

    April 28, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    i love weddings, of course i will be watching! but only because i'm in italy. not if i had to wake up at 6am!

  39. comme fraiche

    April 28, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    I will most certainly be asleep at that hour and it would
    take much more than a royal wedding to get me awake

  40. Kristy

    April 28, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    I´m exited bout her wedding dress…that´s it! ;)

  41. LouBoo

    April 28, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    Yes – really am interested (but then I am British). Don't think any other country could put on a show like we will see tomorrow.

  42. UnknownPerson

    April 28, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    I realy hate it. ok maybe the dress could be interesting. But the whole royal stuff is horrible. I can not understand who a monarchy can exist in the 21the century.

  43. Wendy

    April 28, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Not at all. But do wish them all the best, as I would any couple. Feel rather sorry for them that their day has to be such a media circus.

    SO interested. I'm not ashamed. Watching it live from the west coast.

  47. Julie

    April 28, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    I'm really excited. I got married last year and I am still super obsessed with weddings. I was too young to care when Diana and Charles got married, but I've always been fascinated by royalty, actually thought I would marry wills one day. Se la vie. Can't wait to start watching as soon as I can open my eyes.

  48. Jamie

    April 28, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    I am interested in one thing only – the dress. It will surely be a true feat of design, the likes of which have only been seen in the last decade or so at the wedding of LSD. And a part of me (the little girl still inside) does find the fairy-tale "becoming a princess" aspect of the whole thing magical. That said, I'll probably only spend 5 minutes online later in the day checking for pics of the gown ;)

  49. AKH

    April 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Absolutely not. I am tired of hearing about it when there are more important issues in the world to focus on.

  50. Stephanie

    April 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Yes indeed! At the Paley Center! :)

  51. Momma Peach @ Yankee and Peach

    April 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Yes! Absolutely not getting up early to watch it, but will happily DVR the hours of coverage to watch it all at my leisure later!

  52. Allan

    April 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Does another person actually, really need to ask this question?

    If you care, care, if you don't, get on with your life.

  53. meenal bishnoi

    April 28, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    good question..i really don't think it is that important an event ..but i'll watch it for the spectacle and also because my 9 yr old daughter wants to see a princess..and most importantly in India it will be afternoon at that no setting weird alarms for us! xx meenal

  54. shishiwaldorf

    April 28, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    I am Italian and I just can't take anymore all the rumors about this wedding, I don't care!!! Listening about two royals who are going to be married ONCE can be intersting, but not every single day! Especially when there are lots of things to talk about…

  55. Clara

    April 28, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    I'm having my grandfather record it for me! It was a tradition for me. We used to watch all the royal weddings with my grandma and my mum.
    We loved when the people attending started arriving and we could lookd at what they were wearing. The fashion faux-pas like wearing a long dress for a wedding at noon and stuff like that.
    Anyways for me it is a tradition and if I had a TV I would most definitely watch it!

  56. Barrera

    April 28, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    No, not at all; but congratulations to the couple. being with someone for nearly a decade, i would have just gone downtown and got a marriage certificate cause god knows we've already been living as man and wife, lol.

  57. Blond Panther & Louboutin...

    April 28, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    It's romantic ;)

  58. galatea.

    April 28, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    no interest at all. im almost insulted people call themselves 'royal' or 'kings' when you think about how they got there, this whole royalty thing is all man made, self-proclaimed social hierarchy garbage.

  59. modaslamona

    April 28, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    i really interested in that wedding!for many reasons: i like kitsch issues, i like history, i like red carpets, i like gossips and i like weddings!i'm not monarchist,i'm not republican… i haven't got political reasons to watch the royal wedding, i'm just bored of life's routines!and this event will entertain me!not everything in life is kant or thermodynamics problems..

  60. Coco

    April 28, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    I would have been curious to watch it if it hadn't gotten as much attention from the press before. I know that is impossible as it is a great story for the media, but I was tired of William and Catherine before they got engaged. Too many uninteresting stories so I have completely lost interest, and I am counting down the hours till the wedding is over and the media will report actual news. That being said, I do wish them the best, just not on every single front page every single day.

  61. Luna

    April 28, 2011 at 3:55 pm


    Ok, I am British, so that probably has a lot to do with the fact that I am extremely excited.

    My family and I will be watching the service in the living room, then hosting a garden party with cake, jelly and bunting galore! Got to love England.

    But for you, Scott, surely you could gain some sartorial inspiration from the dress tomorrow? I wish you were there to photograph Kate! I hope above hope that the dress is McQueen!!

    Check out my blog :)

    keep up the great work!!


  62. Mat

    April 28, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    not too fussed, ive got work to do so i won't be watching but it is a massive event over here in the uk. people say it's cheesy but i don't think it's cheesy i just think it's a wedding of 2 people that i'm not interested it. good from a commercial POV for the uk too but i don't really get it to be honest, esp seeing that the family have very little say in the uk compared to the government

  63. José B.

    April 28, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    I will not spend one single minute watching it.

  64. Stephanie

    April 28, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Not at all. I will look at pics of her dress afterward but I have no interest in the wedding itself, watching it, the two of them, etc. I wish them the best, of course, but I just don't care.

  65. Junaluska

    April 28, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    I might see pictures afterwards, but no… I'm not really interested, and I won't be watching. I feel sorry that their wedding has to be so public.

  66. bodicegoddess

    April 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    It'll be on at 5 here in Minnesota, and I'm getting up around 4 or 4:30 with my mom to watch it. We're having scotch eggs and tea.
    I'm interested in the spectacle, the dress, and the fairy tale element. Plus, there's a lot of bad stuff happening in the world right now. It'll be nice to take a break and watch two people have a happy event.

  67. Karina de Stacchiotti

    April 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    si, por supuesto q si!

  68. ania

    April 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    mamma mia… 6 am? are they all crazy?…
    let's be honest, everybody is "somehow" interested. even to see that stupid dress. or maybe mostly because of that. also me. but the rest of that event… really, poor kate. would never like to have a wedding like this. it's just another huge circus.

  69. Marcel Da Chump

    April 28, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    I'm a hopeless (helpless!) romantic , so I'll watch.
    I'm starting to cry already.

  70. Fashionista

    April 28, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    I don't understand the urgency to see it as it happens. With all the modern technology, why not just wait for the highlights?

  71. Beautifully Disarming

    April 28, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    YES! Obviously the main thing is the dress, but I will still watch the whole programme from 8:00-1:00, and I am having a tea party with my family. I'm just gutted there isn't a street party near me. Although, I do find Prince William quite ugly.

  72. Y.A.R.

    April 28, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    It's been said here before and I'm saying it again… -THE DRESS!

  73. indolence_breaker

    April 28, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    I've already had enough from all the press it has gotten. Have you seen the Boston BigPicture edition on it? ha!

  74. Something White

    April 28, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Yes, I´ll watch the ceremony on Belgian TV and I must admit: I like traditions, especially when celebrations are involved. And I´m glad that finally there is again some positive news on TV!
    But because of all the ´pomp & circumstance´ I really wonder how long this marriage will last… :)

  75. Asia a.k.a. Ashia

    April 28, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    thank God I live in Europe and I'll watch it right after coming back home from my morning workout :D
    Plus I'm 22 so obviously I was madly in love with Prince William when I was a little girl ;)
    And of course I can't wait to see THE DRESS!

    April 28, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    I was too young to understand anything about the last royal wedding, so I think it's really interesting, all this hoopla. I think Kate Middleton is lovely and I can't wait to see her, so since I'll be up at that time anyway, I'll tune in before work.

    Thanks but NO thanks!!!

    2am on the west coast, not sure I can stay up that late!

    uhhh wait, hold on….Nope! (but happy for them)

  82. Empress Za Lemore

    April 28, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    I am not interested in the least about the royal wedding.

    But as with any couple I do wish them the best in there marriage.


  83. Alex Matoshko

    April 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    I'm so sick and tired of this wedding – I squint every time I open Twitter. Get it over with, gosh!

  84. Randi

    April 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Not at all. There are so many people in the world who could use that money. I want to see the dress though, so I'll probably google it sometime this weekend.

  85. Ligia

    April 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Not really.

    And I'm not so fond of Kate Middleton either…for some reason she doesn't look like 'royalty' to me! There are lots of commoners out there who look way more princess-like than her.


    April 28, 2011 at 4:12 pm

  87. Jaimie

    April 28, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    I will be up at 5:00am, yep.

  88. jackie

    April 28, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    i watch the today show every day and i see how they're freaking out over it- and i therefore am too… this is our princess diana getting married moment… for our time… i'm excited and will be watching :)

  89. Sartorial Nerd

    April 28, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    If I don't care about the weddings of people I actually know (and trust me, I don't), I'm really not going to care about the wedding of two people I don't know. I'm finding the whole thing very silly.

  90. think_pink

    April 28, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    oh no. actually i'm tired of hearing about this wedding. but there is one thing I want to know…who design the dress?!

  91. Britt

    April 28, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    I'm watching only for the drinking games involved!

  92. Jessie

    April 28, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    I get that it's a big deal, but i think everyone is making it into a much bigger deal than necessary. I am planning on watching a bit but not much!

  93. Emma

    April 28, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    i am so excited and happy about this – maybe it's just a patriotic thing! i don't get why people are so apathetic/angry about it!

  94. vicki

    April 28, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Absolutely. Yes.

  95. theEmocarebear

    April 28, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Not really.
    Interested in how the marriage goes, though. :D

  96. Designs Good

    April 28, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    I'm very interested to see what Kate is wearing, but other than that … not so much. I live in California, so there is no way I'm going to wake up in the middle of the night to watch.

  97. Crafty

    April 28, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Very. I'll be watching live.

  98. the nyanzi report

    April 28, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    It's the perfect excuse for us to get into drunken escapades and debauchery of all sorts at the various street parties in town. I love it!

  99. Plami

    April 28, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    I am going to see it just see everyone's outfits!


  100. Jill

    April 28, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    I have my DVR set, so while I don't care enough to watch live, I do care enough to watch while cleaning my apartment this weekend for my own engagement brunch!

  101. liten

    April 28, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    I love it, the whole thing. Will be watching, but here it will be at a more resonable time, lunch time. It´s entertainment and a lot of hats ;-) Whats not to like!


  102. winke-l

    April 28, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    Bless Wills & Kate, but I think monarchy is quite old-fashioned: Why should we pay for their extravaganze lifestyle?

  103. Kacie

    April 28, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    I think it's a nice story. I am interested only because of the history that is involved. This is Princess Diana's son afterall. And… I'll probably be up watching it because I have a newborn who gets up at 5:45!!!


  104. Elviella

    April 28, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Naah. I don't think I could be less interested. I didn't even know when exactly it's going to be til now. :P

  105. MJ

    April 28, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    I want to see Kate's dress!



    April 28, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    no. or i might. just to compare it to the swedish wedding, which i watched since i live there.


  107. Biz

    April 28, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    I've been watching Royal Wedding specials like its my job – we're up to about 17 specials thus far. I'm totally excited.

  108. Milena

    April 28, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    I'm curious about Katie's dress, that's all, no way i'm wasting my time watching this thing, just check the photos out later

  109. Ina

    April 28, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Just the dress!

  110. Dailan

    April 28, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    Not interested at all. Yawn. Who cares? I don't get this obsession.

  111. sarawithoutanh

    April 28, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    Not that interested–just want to see the dress.

  112. Nelly

    April 28, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    I don't really care. I'll probably read about it online and look at pictures the day after.

  113. Erica R.

    April 28, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    I also will have my DVR set! I have a law school final tomorrow so…I have no time to get up to watch it! I think that in the grand scheme of things…it isn't "important." Yet, I think some people take some extra concern in this because of its connection to Princess Diana. Clearly, this isnt about her…but seemingly the world has always been fixated on anything that involves or relates to her. As this is her child getting married and many saw him grow up…it makes sense. Also, we are a society that is obsessed with weddings. And this is why I am excited to see the DRESS. Plus, the "commoner" kate story is about as real life Cinderella as we probably will ever see in our life time. So, although odd…I do think to some degree most people are "really" interested in this.

    Yes, I saw the films of the current queen, I saw Diana live, and I will watch this wedding on DVD. I'm too old to get up at 1 and watch it all. Most of the ladies where I work and swim are going to watch too….delayed gratification tho.

    No freakin' way. I don't even understand why the monarchy still exists this day and age, and the current royalty is especially abysmal.

    April 28, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    I'm from Australia and I'm not interested and am over all the media coverage already. I understand and respect the importance of it for the UK but feel they live so far away from us. I'd love Australia to become a Republic. Pruxxx

    no. I'll look at the pics to see the dress the next day, and that will be that.

  121. Emily Jones

    April 28, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Getting up at 5am. Making mimosas and english muffins and celebrating the start to my weekend with the royal wedding. Hopefully I can make it through work all day tomorrow! haha! So excited!

    I am interested and I actually like the idea of having a roayl family :) not a brit though so all I have is british royalty..


  123. Caroline J. Posynick

    April 28, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Yes, I am. And I am on the West Coast, so the ceremony is at 3am. I think I will just stay up and go to bed at 6 am! :)

    By all gods imaginable- I am SICK and TIRED of all the hype! They even made a bleedin' movie about the two of them and ugh, it's just over the top. We've had it shoved down our throats for ever now here, in England. I can't wait for the media to just leave poor William and Kate alone. (And let me watch TV, read the papers and listen to the radio in peace).

    Whose wedding ?
    I'm French, but it's not the reason. I think they are trying to make "big sound" with a tiny little noise.

  128. Desert Mermaid

    April 28, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    um, not! wonder at a possible future king who would allow the bajillions of money to be spent on his wedding when so many in his country are unemployed, but hey, tradition, tally ho, right?

  129. The Blonde Mule

    April 28, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Definitely watching, but not in real time. My friend & I are Tivo-ing it & watching it tomorrow night over dinner & cocktails.

    Well seeing as the Monarchy there is just for looks, and the wedding is at 4 am at the State I would love to say no, but thank you.

  132. Jo

    April 28, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    I wasn't…but then I watched the documentary and now I am. I'm a sucker for romance!!



  133. Lindsay Jewell

    April 28, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    I was honestly surprised by the hype. I initially thought it was all a big parody. I'm not overtly annoyed or anything, but I feel that I'm missing something.

  134. Maddie

    April 28, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    I'm not one bit interested, and I wish the news would shut up about it.

  135. Angela Scott Bueno

    Not at all. but it will be funny follow the comments on twitter o/

  136. Nena Nadine

    April 28, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    Not really. I'll look at some recaps to see the fashion but that is it. Which won't take much effort because I'm sure it will be shoved down my throat by every means of media and I'll be over it with in 48 hours. I can't wait till it is over with so I can see some real news coverage.

  137. Amanda

    April 28, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    I think it's like a celebrity obsession; people want to know every bit of a celeb/royal's life even though they aren't included in the events at all. It's all for the entertainment of others. I personally won't be watching the royal wedding and I don't think I'll be missing much. But I still wish congrats to the couple.


  138. Jay

    April 28, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    I have no interest in it….and I'll be some where over the pacific at that time.
    I guess I'm in the 0.01% that don't get it.

    April 28, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    "Interested" is relative. It's like the crappy song on the radio that you never heard ever until you are out with a friend and it's played 5 times in an hour on every single station. After three months time, you know the words and it almost seems involuntary. But, you know how you got to that point. Socializing means being socialied.

  141. Dahl

    April 28, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    Finally! Someone else who feels the same way. I'm actually not at all interested in the royal wedding. Sure, it's happy and historically significant, but I didn't know or care about these people before, so why should I now just because they're royal? Ah, I know I'm being snappy, but that's just how I see it.

  142. anya

    April 28, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    Yes! Mostly for the style. I think Kate Middleton is so classy – I try to dress somewhere between the way she does and the younger, less high-brow people you feature ("on the street," and not fashion week).

  143. Luana

    April 28, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    Of course! My whole family is English, but we live in Oregon and my grandma's sister lives in San Francisco. Tomorrow we're driving down to San Fran and we're all going to watch it together. Tiara's, tea, and alcohol will be involved.

  148. Amy T

    April 28, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    no, im seriously bored of hearing anything about it. and i really couldnt care less about what dress she is going to wear. Why celebrate someones wedding you dont even know. They may be royal but to be they are just another couple getting married.

  149. Vanessa

    April 28, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    I'll be watching part of it, but I live in Sweden, so I don't have to wake up early for it. If I had to I wouldn't watch. I'm only curious about the dress, I find the people involved completely uninteresting.

  150. Hickers

    April 28, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    We're all wedding crazy here in London. God save the Queen

  151. katebish

    April 28, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    Very posh Brit here, so yes, I will actually be there tomorrow! I think people really need to understand how important the Royal family are. This is going to bring millions of pounds (and even more dollars!) to the UK, and without them, ties to other countries would be far worse. And don't forget, they will eventually become our King and Queen (even if it is another 30 years)

  152. Bojana B.

    April 28, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Hm,i'm only a bit curious about wich dress the bride will be wearing..:D

  153. T

    April 28, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    So many miserable comments, jeez… Nice to see people happy on the news for once… and its a once in a generation event.

    The funniest comments here are the ones that say "No I am not interested. But I will check out what they were wearing later" — Shallow, ironic and dumb all the same time. Bravo.

  154. Zuzan

    April 28, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    I will watch it but I am more like curious than really interested. It is also a good opportunity to get drunk :D

    April 28, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    I love Kate and Will, the protocol, the dresses, the carriage, but most of all the fascinators. I own a brand called SOMBRERILLO in Chile and I make them myself 100% hand made.
    Love your blog!

    April 28, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    I'm an American living in New Zealand. It's stupifying the amount of interest these commonwealth folks have in the Royals. As far as sartorialism goes, the Royals fall well behind!

  157. miss anna katie

    April 28, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    I'm a Brit, and I quite frankly do not care a bit. All I can say is thanks for the bank holiday! 4 day weekend for me and lovely long sleep in in the morning :)

  158. Roxana Farahmand

    April 28, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    Yes, definitely interested!! I think when you have the chance, as a foreigner, to live there and work there (especially since I worked in the government) you end up having some sort of appreciation for this sort of a thing.

    Will be up at 4AM, not 6!! ;)

  159. Suzy

    April 28, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    Do not really care. There will plenty of photos and video clips all over the web if interested. Def. will not be up early!!!!

  160. Audrey

    April 28, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    nope, and tired of hearing about it, to be perfectly frank.

  161. falavia

    April 28, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    I am with Melissa on this . Not the least bit interested.

  162. Jen

    April 28, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    I just really want to see the dress already! :)


  163. Zoe

    April 28, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Tomorrow is "blowout" (last day of classes) at my college, and most of the Sororities are having parties with champagne at whatever hour it comes out to be on the East Coast. I have a few friends who follow the tabloid stories closely, but most people just see it as interesting eccentricism.

  164. Julianna Collett

    April 28, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    I said up all night with my Mom years ago for Diana's wedding , now I am planning an all- nighter with my girls for this one it is watching what the next generation will read about in history bools and watch in movies and as a wedding photographer I am interested in seeing her dress it will be the start of a new trend.

  165. Rebekah

    April 28, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    I'm interested. Not enough to follow constant coverage or to wake up early to watch but I have a friend recording it and we're getting together at her house in Atlanta, GA for a Royal Wedding Breakfast in our pajamas! It's just fun. Historical? Sure. But definitely fun for those of us that watched Charles and Diana's.

  166. Style Muse

    April 28, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    Quite honestly, there is so much turmoil and uncertainty in the world these days, it's rather nice to feel a bit of hope of happiness, even if it might be through others. I think that's why the Royal Wedding is also of interest. I of course want to see her dress and hoping it's McQueen. The monarchy however is so antiquated and almost not useful, but I hope with this things change, at least for them. Next for me.

  167. Fiyel Levent

    April 28, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    Yes and Yes! I'm so into this kind of fluffy stuff – I'm not going to pretend I'm not! I wish I was becoming a princess – hahaha!

  168. Holden

    April 28, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Only for the hats or fastenaters(sp?). There definitely needs to be more hat fashion in the media. Although, it also pains me to see news networks bump stories about Libya for hats…I guess I'm not sure how I feel.

  169. ArgyleCity

    April 28, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    Oh, puh-lease, like Scott's not going to tune in to critique all the old ladies' hats.

  170. saradowle

    April 28, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    As a Brit, I am interesting in the Royal wedding – and not all are. With two 4 day weekends in a row, around the country there is a buzz of patriotism which you don't see everyday. I think this feeling of 'togetherness' is the most important thing over here in the UK, and it seems a shame that the media overhaul has caused negativity and tedium!

  171. L

    April 28, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I am interested because my family has history in the UK. My grandmother was born and raised there before coming over. She still has her accent today! She was hysterical after Diana passed… They view their royals so highly. Plus, who hasn't hoped at some time (whether in their Disney years or secretly after) that they would be a Princess?

  172. Jenni Austria Germany

    April 28, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    i've forgotten about it, to be honest (yes, i live under a rock). but i can't wait to see her dress.

    April 28, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Up by 5 am, dressed by 6 am, out the door by 6:30 am, teaching physics at 7:05 am…nope, I'm gonna' miss it. I do love weddings though!

  174. ~ SueHarriz ~

    April 28, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    i wish! it'll be aired at 5pm here in malaysia. nut i will b working at that time so im gona miss the live one. there'll always be the re-run, so yeah im ssssooo gona watch it!! i wanna see how kate will look, and her dress!!!

  175. lucia

    April 28, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Yes!!! Up at 3 AM in California! How many Royal Weddings does one expect to see? And – I love English literature.

  176. DJ Twisted Sister

    April 28, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    I imagine the two of them are really nervous – should be entertaining to watch whether you're interested in these two or not. She's going to look absolutely stunning, we all know it already.

  177. Cybee

    April 28, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    No, not interested beyond seeing perhaps a snapshot of the pomp and her dress…

  178. oh, lovely day!

    April 28, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    while i will not be watching it when it is happening, i will me recording it to watch over the weekend. honestly, i could care less who is getting married, i just love weddings and they are a lovely couple!


  179. Kristy Elena

    April 28, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    i am not at all interested and rather off-put that it's getting quite so much coverage. i understand it's a big deal for the UK as well, but it seems to be everywhere i turn… even on those annoying tv screens in new york cabs.

    i love that you asked this question!

  180. avid chancer

    April 28, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    hahaha! I think people feel like they should be interested. I, however, do want to see a picture of the bride's dress sometime.

  181. Malo

    April 28, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Not interested in the wedding in the least bit. I wish the best for them but why should I watch strangers getting married?



  182. hannah davis

    April 28, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    it still confuses me that america is so wrapped up in it, but being from a country ruled by the royal family, i like it. kate is joining that family and she's party of their and my future.

  183. fashionelle

    April 28, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    i will be enjoying the unveiling of her dress at 6am with a mimosa in one hand and a scone in the other. though not nearly as stylish as normal waking hours.

  184. Flo

    April 28, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    I am "interested in the royal wedding," yes. But the press will cover this event magnificently, and I can't wait to see the fruits of their labor, viewed at an appropriate hour. This is THE one time we may rely on the press to get the whole thing absolutely right.

  185. May

    April 28, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Yes! It's on at 6pm in Australia, I'm having a high tea where all my girlfriends and I are wearing our best dresses and fascinators. Yay!

  186. teresantps

    April 28, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    i'm really excited to watch it! I won't be missing it for sure!

  187. Melissa Avila

    April 28, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I am (and have been) deliberately avoiding coverage of it. As much as I love fashion, I am first and foremost a politics gal. :) I follow current events closely.
    I find this whole media circus around celebrity life events/downfalls infuriating. (yes, I'm sorry. The royal family counts as "celebrity" in my opinion.) What a waste of time, energy and attention.

  188. Angie Muresan

    April 28, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I can only think of one thing worth getting up so early for. So, no, I plan to sleep right through it. I'm only interested in the fashions anyway, and those can wait until later in the day.
    But happy viewing for everyone else!

  189. Mena

    April 28, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Seems a little insignificant to me – maybe because there are violent uprisings all throughout the Middle East, tornados ravaging the States, and a nuclear disaster in Japan.

    I'm British – dissolve the monarchy and use the money to ease austerity measures and stimulate the economy.

  190. carol c

    April 28, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    nah. I can see the pictures and hear all about it the next day if I am still interested.

  191. Pilar Aranda

    April 28, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    I'm not a 100% interested, I just wanna see her dress, and how the guests will be dressed too. I know that Vogue and all the fashion blogs will do that job for me, so I don't have to wake up early tomorrow (7 am chilean time), plus, I have an exam tomorrow! Big one! (I'm a Law student)

  192. Alice

    April 28, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    I'm actually pretty sick of the hype. I'm looking forward to seeing the wedding dress but that's about it!

    I actually wrote in my blog this morning about how dissapointed I am in the wedding and about how much I oppose it!

    My ideas are controversial but I must be honest!

  196. Teodora

    April 28, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Not really. But I think you could have a lot of material for your blog in front of the Abbey.


  197. Blair Kawa

    April 28, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    I have scones, mimosas, and my grandmother's tea set all prepped…. better yet, although I'll still be in my pajamas, I'll be wearing a cute little hat for the occasion.

  198. Purple Panda

    April 28, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    I do understand why people would be interested in it; it's not everyday you see a royal wedding. But for people like me, I really don't see any significance of another wealthy family going all out on a wedding.

  199. Andrea Reh

    April 28, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    Yes! I'm a Kiwi though, so we have a bit of that 'Mother England' nostalgia going on. Plus, we don't have to get up early – 9pm for me!

    April 28, 2011 at 11:08 pm

    I am definitely interested, but Im not going to watch anything at 6 am. Im interested; Not obsessed. Im sure Ill get to see it later in the day.

  202. Luli

    April 28, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    Yes, I will watch it. I watch all royal weddings. I watched Crown Princess Victoria's wedding last summer and I will watch Prince Albert's royal wedding this summer. I love the fashion, the hats, the romance, the fairy tale. Le Sigh.

  203. Rock Paper Scissors

    April 28, 2011 at 11:27 pm

    I'll be up making tea and eating scones! Can't wait! How could you not… It's every girls dream!

  204. Carl Pullein

    April 28, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    In a world of bad news, killing and war, the Royal Wedding brings, for me, a welcome relief. It also will be a very interesting day of amazingly colourful military uniforms and correct wedding attire – and of course the wedding dress itself.

  205. NEONblack

    April 28, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Yes and no…Im sick of hearing about it, and when I clicked on Bloglovin the first 10 posts had something to with it…so annoying.

  206. Syl

    April 28, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    I'm interested in what the wedding party will be wearing. I plan to watch for lovely little details and accessories. Oh, and congrats to the royal couple, too!

  207. dabblelicious

    They're a gorgeous couple though :)

    Thank you for addressing this pressing issue. I respect that its a big deal, but honestly, it makes me jealous!! why should i watch someone else become a princess and do important things when I could be doing important things myself?? My own wedding was prob more fun anyway :)


  211. toridawn

    April 29, 2011 at 12:41 am

    Too honest to be cynical here: yes. Who knows, this might be the last royal wedding ever! The world is changing after all…

  212. Allison

    April 29, 2011 at 1:08 am

    I'm so excited that she chose an independent designer for the dress. I believe that was her first step in modernizing the monarchy.

  214. Marisa Alma

    April 29, 2011 at 1:22 am

    Not interested at all. No one in the royal family is very attractive-looking and considering how much money they have, their fashion-sense is an abomination.

  215. beesandbugs

    April 29, 2011 at 1:29 am

    I'm not interested at all but I'm happy that the wedding is today because all this fuss started getting on my nerves :)

  216. Biaa

    April 29, 2011 at 1:39 am

    Not interested in anything but seeing what her dress is like and what other stylish creatures emerge! I'll just watch the recap/highlights on the news tomorrow morning, and find photos online :)

  217. Stef

    April 29, 2011 at 1:42 am

    I am interested in seeing it. My family almost had a cult for princess Diana and of course I want to see Kate too:)

  218. Labellaluxe

    April 29, 2011 at 1:52 am

    I wouldn't miss it for the world! My family and I were "camped out" in our home for Diana's wedding, and we will be watching William's wedding.

  219. Eva

    I find the whole spectacle completing revolting, not least because it celebrates undeserved wealth and privilege amidst expansive cuts in Britain to health, pensions, and other vital services to the poor. The whole ordeal is an affront to the notion of democracy, and as a New Zealander the wedding serves principally to me as a popular reminder of the fact that our country not only recognises but on many occasions celebrates the imperial power of the British monarchy.

    All the same, I can't wait to see the dress :)

    Definitely yes! Even though I'm a 7th generation Australian, I still feel a pull to my British heritage. Plus, Will and Kate are terrific role models: sophisticated, polite, elegant and caring. Some reports have put the world coverage in some form or another to reach 3 billion. That's half the world's population and a great way to bring people together.

It's just a wedding, who cares if you've seen them on tv, unless know them personally it's just as special as any wedding you don't go to.

    Brit here. Have done as much as possible to avoid coverage.

    Funny story: Talking to a section editor at a major UK newspaper the other day, he mentioned that all the big rags had basically had a meetup to address what they saw as widespread public disinterest in the event, and collectively elected to pump the general story from that point on, e.g. one of the papers putting out a Chuck & Di memorial supplement.

    I hope you're right, Sart – that it's an historic occasion – the last.

    In the context of this site, the royals are dull dressers (beyond being a medieval national embarrassment.)

    I have to be in central London today on business, too. Best way to avoid it – just ignore it – carry on a normal day.

    I just watched The Royal Wedding and jump here to see some of the comments.
    I must say I am delighted and grateful I was able to watch this important historical event. Like any other event in history, even if you're not a fan of the Royal Monarchy, I believe it is good to follow, even better if you can share it with your little ones or significant other. I did not have to wake up at 4am, thank God for DVR. 6 o'clock was fine and just follow through. I loved Kate's gown, it reminded me of Grace Kelly's wedding dress, it was just the perfect fit for her. The rest, pure fashion reference and a bit of British culture.

    Monocultures haven't existed anywhere for a considerable while, and in the UK's case, there's a helluvah lot more to that chunk of dirt than a couple of wealthy kids getting their pomp on. "Heritage" as a rote industrial exercise. It is suffocating and grotesque.

    Hi Scott!
    I waited to see the "extended" coverage of this world event AFTER the real time event…
    Suffice to say, Prince looked SO happy and SO in love. Kate did,too, but she looked more like she has been preparing for this day & her "role" since her mother convinced her of the grand plan by getting into the same college as Will…God Bless socially ambitious mothers! Although I doubt if Diana were alive, she would have approved of Kate for her son. I think she would have wanted a daughter in law that no matter her family background, she would be smart enough to pursue her own goal/career in life rather than be annointed "Waity Katy" for most of her twenties and waiting for her fairytale prince to make her worth something…I would not want my own daughter to aspire to such ambitions but rather to make herself and her life into a tale worth living and if a prince comes along worth her and his love, then the true romance can survive all…Too romantic and idealistic of me, huh???

    Yes!!!! I love watching Royal Weddings, maybe not the complete live broadcast, but a sneak peak of the guests entering the church and watching what women are wearing and if it is adequate or not, the accesories, etc. I don't understand if you are as interested in fashion as you say, why don't you like it? It is an expression of fashion and today's wedding was the most important and pompous of the century. Maybe it is because most of you come from the US or are working/living there? This is history, it is culture, it is something to be interested on. But of course I perfectly respect your view. Kind regards,

    i was interested enough to wake up at 2am (my time) to watch it. I didn't even exist when Diana and Charles were married and there's something intriguing about seeing a true fairytale princess wedding.

    I'm not so crazy that I'd bother with every detail of the lives of royals but I think everyone loves a wedding and it was beautiful.

    I think this is a historic moment and we should all take it as it is. we should be grateful that we are at the age when we can enjoy such an event (without necessarily relating to it). I am Romanian, so I watched the broadcast at noon, but still I thought it was moving…an event of such grandeur… and so well coordinated!

    I'm so pleased that you are asking this question. I thought i was the only one who might be thinking it was a horrible big whipped-up piece of mass hysteria. Isn't the concept of royalty actually highly offensive? So non Every-man-is-created-equal, so very unAmerican i would have thought? & i think it was pretty expected that the dress would be very safe and midde-of-the-road in style

    I'm Australian and personally it's just made me want Australia to become a republic. Also, I don't think the dress deserves to be associated with McQueen. One in five British public servants will be out of work, this wedding has just been used as distraction.

    I'm disappointed in this question.

    It is predictable that comments would be polarized and not the least bit thoughtful in most cases. The world could do with a lot less of the outright and veiled nastiness in many comments. This is a form of hogwash that plagues the internet these days.

    If people truly didn't care in the numbers who claim they don't, they would simply refuse to buy into all the hype and the media would eventually go elsewhere.

    I'm from Australia where Will and Kate are likely to be my future king and queen, so their marriage is a relevant historical occasion. I watched the whole 4 hour tv broadcast. But even here most people I know are not interested for various reasons. Oh well, it was a beautiful ceremony and well worth my time! For me, Royal families have the power to unify more than anyone else in existence which is so important when times are tough. You could see the joy on everyone's faces :)

    I was less interested in the fact that it was the "Royal Wedding" and more interesting in seeing two people who truly love each other make a lifelong commitment to continue to do so. I was channel surfing at 3am and came across the ceremony and started to watch, sucked in by the sheer joy I saw in the expressions of Kate and William. Then I continued to watch because the romantic was anticipating their first kiss as though it were my own first kiss after marriage. It was truly heartwarming and made me smile.

    To all the naysayers all I can do is point out how completely wonderful an event it was – we Brits do put on a mighty fine show. She looked knee-tremblingly hot, while he looked regal and thrilled. I know the concept of Royalty may be alien or distasteful to some, and I am by no means a royalist, but really, it makes it worth having them around for days like yesterday.

    Scott, in my opinion this event has no historical significance whatsoever. How will it change the world, either to the better or the worse? In no way at all. It is just a spectacle for a nation that still has not come to terms with its headless fall into nothingness. Britain is a country in 'postcolonial melancholia', decrying its past grandeur. The flyover of a Lancaster bomber and 2 Spitfire plans during the wedding illustrates this. Having helped win the Second World War was the last great thing of historical significance in this country. What do they have to offer themselves and the world now? A haven for the corrupt financial elite, that is all. Few are thriving, the rest of the country is falling apart. Sadly.


    April 30, 2011 at 6:43 am

    I was at the Ryde Park for the whole thing. London was a different city, it the same energy you get on a festival. However I don't know if the real reason was the wedding itself or the music, drinks and fashion.
    We were at least 1000.000, the atmosphere was just amazing.

    It was pretty emotional to see them saying their I DOs.
    But people kind of forgot how just a few weeks ago, there were protests all over London against the many cuts we suffered in different areas.

    At the end of the day, the Royal Wedding is a waste of our money, Tacky and way OTT.

    Congrats for them, but today we woke up just as we went to sleep on Thursday night.

    No amazing honeymoon, no presents, nothing different.

    I still cannot buy the Alexander Wang bag I have been dreaming for months.

    And my camera, which was stolen a few weeks ago, when someone broke into my house, is still missing. Where is the monarchy when we need them?

    I watched it with the girls – in our PJs and Pearls… and Kate Middleton replica engagement rings from a local chainstore!

    We love a wedding and were looking forward to the pomp and ceremony as well as the dress. while the actual ceremony wasn't as intimate/personal as the weddings my own friends have had so far, did think that Kate also managed to choose a dress that was very "her". The shape of bodice, long sleeves & tasteful but modern v-neck of cleavage reminded me of her Issa engagement dress. Beautiful but safe and consistent… and Prince Harry (yes the brother) looked simply dashing!

    im assuming most of the people that are writing these comments are american.. well how about you admire and look at what other countries blooming and celebrating [for WHATEVER REASON] rather then just your own countries 'festivities'

    Constitutional monarchies seem to work quite well(Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Holland) by separating Head of State role from politics. Have avoided media frenzy but enjoyed the event itself. We do pageantry well & goodness knows we're a small island with bad weather but we do have tons of history(& this was a great piece of marketing)…I don't know how much Presidential pomp & circumstance costs in the various republics but I suspect our Royals aren't bad value actually. Anyway, the world is pretty bland, let's enjoy a bit of jollity.

    I'm British and I like the Royals. They do an immense amount of good and cost far less than the money the make for the country. They haven't 'earnt' Royalty, but someone has to be King / Queen / Prince, who else would you have? Having a monarchy keeps traditions alive and life would be a little more boring if they're lost.

    I'm not keen on the media hype, but that's the media. To be in London yesterday was to be in one big party. Street parties everywhere, all loved up and I love this country!

Everyone has caught a glimpse of it all, either by tv or computer. AND every woman has an opinion, usually positive, on the dress. I think it's a lovely bit of pomp and circumstance. Yes, it's expensive, but it brings a lot more enjoyment that all the other garbage that governments from around the world waste our tax dollars on. Best wishes to William and Kate!!

    William and Kate are fine enough, I guess, but I find them boring in a 1950s kind of way. The best thing about the wedding was the princesses Beatrice & Eugenie, who looked as though they were seeking revenge through assaultive fashion choices as a way to punish the royal family for not inviting their mama!

    I had no intention of watching the wedding and had not been swept in any of the media hoo-ha at all. However, as I arrived home that night, Prince Charles had just arrived at the wedding and they said there was only the Queen to arrive and then Kate! So, I raced to make a cup of tea and sat back on the couch. I was glued to what was happening from the vows, to the choir, to the speeches and definitely shed a tear! In the world we live in today, it really was lovely to see people who love each other do a thing that many people do, get married.

So I'm happy for them but really, make it so big you can't even do anything without being remembered this wedding ? It's crazy. In my country (France) they didn't stop talking about that in the news.

    So many cynics here! I did wake up, despite being unsure of how interested I was. Kate's dress was wow. In retrospect, I'm so glad I watched. First, we all need a little pomp and celebration in our lives. Second, it's a serious lesson in Western roots, culture (or current lack thereof) and how far we've traveled as a society since the days of kingdom, god and serfdom. Moments like these are joyful, sobering, polarizing and educational. I, for one, want to participate in such an evetn.

    Not interested. Didn't watch it. Six am is for sleep or the gym. But I may be in the minority.

    Definitely I watched it!! And loved every minute! But I'm an Aussie, so they are our royal family too, and it's on at a very sociable 5pm our time.

    I watched. I was very interested in the men's wear. It is a fascinating moment to watch the evolution of men's formal wear. As a photographer of fashion, you get bored easily, I've noticed, and look for the novelty – the fashion forward. As a man who is simply interested in elegant dress, reviewing and critiquing the attempts to stay in the great tradition, but just slightly evolve it – the conventional, but new.

    Hi! In France it was at 12 o'clock so it was easier to watch it! And yes I was interested in it even if i think that too much money has been spent in it.
    It's the first comment i put on this blog and your photos are great!

    Yes i woke up at 4 AM to watch it.
    I personally think it was wonderful to finally see something on tv that wasnt about the financial debt, wars, poverty, violence….basically our everyday life. It was nice to finally turn on the tv and watch something beautiful, something that would let me escape reality for a little bit, no matter how immature that may sound.

    I'm late in responding, but yes. I absolutely was/did watch it, but not just for the superficial stuff like the dress! The media has their own agenda and silly area of concentration. I'm watching to witness the fact that Diana's love lives on through her first born and he is now happy and in love. There is a good chance this couple will have the power to tweak some of the old traditions of the Royal Family and make it fresh and new and more appropriate for this modern world we live in. The resentment towards this tradition is somewhat understandable, but I'm tired of negativity so I am hopeful and optimistic about it's future. :-)

    No! I would have been satisfied with seeing a picture of her dress and never hearing about it again.
