April 29th, 2011 Finding Fabulous, Marriage Miscellany | No Comments

I realized that, despite my best intentions, I’ve not updated this blog since JANUARY. Shameful, yes. But life happens. That isn’t to say I’ve abandoned my most favourite of pre-wedding distractions (because having them are CRUCIAL to avoid going into bridal meltdown!) I’ve simply gotten wrapped up in life. What’s the John Lennon lyric? Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans… truer words, my friends. Truer words.
In the meantime – check out this fab article posted on about the various vultures cashing in – or, at least trying to – on the upcoming Royal Nuptials.
Commemorative Coins, Paper Dolls & China are pretty much par for the course. But a palace-sanctioned Royal App for your iPhone or Android? That’s right – starting April 18, for the mere price of £1.79 – you can add this app to your phone and enjoy “the tradition, splendour and romance of the seven royal weddings,” including “images of wedding dresses and jewellery, gifts exchanged between bride and groom, presents from family and friends, wedding cakes and flowers.”
My personal favourite, though, has to be the Crown Jewels Condoms of Distinction.

Doesn’t it just scream ‘class’? And the best part? The following disclaimer:

“Crown Jewels Royal Wedding Souvenir Condoms are not supplied to, or approved by, Prince William of Wales, Catherine Middleton or any member of the Royal Family. Crown Jewels Royal Wedding Souvenir Condoms are a novelty condom not suitable for contraception or protection against STDs.”
I, for one, love watching weddings of this scale on TV… the hats ALONE make it worth tuning in. Will you be watching?

Okay, I’m the furthest thing from a Royal Watcher (my mom has held that position in our family for quite some time), but when I heard the announcement that Prince William and Kate Kate Middleton were officially engaged, I thought to myself, “now THAT is a televised event I’ll tune in for.”
I mean – even if you couldn’t care less about the Monarchy (I mean, seriously – I’m Canadian and even I think it’s an outdated concept… despite my heritage telling me I should swoon at its mere mention) you have to admit that there’s going to be some pretty ostentatious glitz & glamour (not to mention pomp and or circumstance) on display when those I Dos are said.
And now the latest is that young Wills has popped the question using his mama’s ring. You know the one: Princess Diana’s 18 carat sapphire? The one Prince Charles gave her when he proposed (oh, if only she’d known…) 30-plus years ago? That’s a helluva ring to be just sitting in a safe somewhere – so why not trot it out on another young, rock star princess, right?

Hopefully it’s not tainted by the previous owner’s unlucky marital history. And, hopefully, young Kate won’t also be sporting that early 80’s style worn by Diana when she walked down the aisle.
Just sayin’…
