Time to Celebrate – 08 “The Royal Wedding”

The wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton is coming up at the end of this month! On Friday, April 29th, the couple will wed at the Westminster Abbey. According to online news sources, they met in college in 2001 and announced their engagement last November (awwww).
The invitations to the wedding made their debut to guests back in February, and luckily a snapshot of one made it's way to the Internet.
The card itself is a 10"x6" thick bright white cardstock with gilded edges. Queen Elizabeth's emblem appears at the top in gold.
Approximately 1,900 invitations were sent to guests ranging from kings and charity leaders to close friends and family.
Our initial thoughts were that the invitations were classic and very simple. But perhaps the reasoning for that is more than traditional alone- after all, who wants to add rhinestones and tie bows for 1,900 invitations?!?!
