Quotes taken from the News and photos of William and Kate V topic.

Or is it MacBeth family need all the advert money so they can spend and look lavish and rich??
...Wonder how much hubby's family are contributing to this shin-dig??

It also looks like the Midds are...getting some freebies, i.e., free caviar from a mysterious Russian free Jaguars & Land Rovers to transport guests from the Village Hall to the Venue...and probably lots more, including flowers and catering.  No end to the freebies for companies that want publicity attached to the royals. 

There have always been visible special 'promotions' for the RF and RF-adjacent for automobiles. No doubt there are many invisible special accomodations for other products. It's not unusual for companies to agree to special prices when an event is high visibility; a price discount becomes advertising expense. We won't find out how much of the wedding costs were shared by the families.

For me the problem with this Middleton wedding shindig is the way it is being advertised, and I use that word intentionally.  It is being advertised. ... They seem to be courting publicity. Pippa is not a member of the RF...yet her wedding is being publicised as though it is a royal wedding.  ...this shameless advertising is tainting the RF, I believe.   

The daily progress reports about the wedding in the media is self-aggrandizing since Pippa is not an established figure in entertainment, journalism, politics, industry or tech. Her reported interests waxed and waned like a Pokemon mobile app. The continual mention of her sister, BIL, niece and nephew in the reports connects the RF to an event they neither originated nor control. It creates an impression of official approval when no statement was issued by BP or SJP. It is the equivalent of someone using your name as personal reference without your knowledge or agreement.

The increasingly complex arrangements of the initial 'country wedding' description for this event are well beyond an ordinary definition. The 'country wedding' event is to weddings what L'Hameau de la Reine in Versaille is to an ordinary farm.

Quite apart from James' connection to Scotland via his family's recent Glen Affric connection, I don't see anything odd about them having a Scottish theme.  They are British, and Scotland is still part of the island of Britain and of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  If they like things Scottish, why not incorporate them into their wedding?  Isn't imitation still considered to be the sincerest form of flattery?  

I am now mildly interested in this wedding.  Whisky and bagpipes work for me.  Not sure about the haggis canapes.

JMHO, but they are ENGLISH.... and his father BOUGHT a property in Scotland (and a title to go with it)...... as someone with quite deep-rooted Scottish ancestry, I do see it as cultural appropriation - the Scots don't like the English coming and taking their stuff!!

But you're right, with all their money they can have whatever they want.

I take your point. I hadn't taken that into consideration.  I was just thinking of cultural appropriation in general terms.

Though I still think it's OK to have Scottish elements if that's what they want, I sincerely hope no-one who is not Scottish or with a good claim to wear it, wears anything tartan. That would be too crass.

Oh yes, a few touches here and there (who doesn't want good whiskey served at their wedding?? And the haggis canapes sound "interesting") but I was just imagining Terribly Rich James in a kilt  Nerves

Some things should not even be mentioned!  Nerves  The thought had occurred to me, too, but I kept it to myself.  Made no difference though because some wag had already thought of it, and this manip can readily be found on the internet:

Haggis canapes are actually delicious...we had them at our wedding, although I was marrying a Scot in Scotland.

I probably made an idiot of myself at my 1997 wedding because my groomsmen wore black watch tartan plaid (is that redundant?) vests under their black suit jackets. It was very subtle. Then, my junior bridesmaid wore a dress that the top was like the regular bridesmaids but the bottom was black watch tartan and my flower girls had black watch tartan ties on their dresses at the waist. I'm not Scottish and I married a New York Italian. I'm mostly German and from Texas. Was that a huge faux pas?  Blink

P.S. did she ever get married? Or is it in the future? I wonder if they're live feeding it on YouTube anywhere?

Haha yes tartan and plaid mean the same thing  Tongue

I found this little bit of advice......

Tradition has it that those who have no tartan of their own can wear the Black Watch (The Universal or Government Tartan) or the Hunting Stewart, but not the Royal Stewart without the express authority of the Queen. However, commercialisation in recent times has rather blurred this.

I guess for me, I was concerned with the reports of the Scottish "themed" reception, given that their only claim to the country is the fact the grooms father BOUGHT an estate (and the title that came with it)...... to me it would be like having a full-on Bollywood style Indian wedding, where neither of the couple has much tie to the country other than enjoying a tasty vindaloo!

Its the fierce Scottish pride instilled in me by my father and grandmother! Then there is my husband's grandmother, who was piped to her grave by her grandson.....

Seems in the end there was only a slight nod to the theme in some of the food, which I'm totally fine with

I can't even find a picture of my wedding because I was just on the tail end of the traditional wedding book old fashioned huge clunky thing and I never had any snaps scanned. Ugh. It was very subtle as I remember - mainly trying to tie everything together. Deep respect for the Scottish fighting spirit.    I'm glad it was the "Universal or Government Tartan." Makes me feel like a less of a cultural usurper.

Edit for grammar correction. Twice.  No
