An intimate reception will be hosted by the Prince's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II followed by a night of dancing and celebration at Buckingham Palace hosted by the groom's father, Prince Charles.
We asked British wedding planner Mark Niemierko on his thoughts on why Kate Middleton decided to forgo the traditional glass carriage ride to Westminster Abbey. Here's what he had to say, "I think Kate's choice of a car shows she's opting for a modern wedding, and certainly aiming for a more low key event to that of William's parents.
It also suggests her wedding dress might be rather demure and not a ball gown... to which is more suited to a carriage. I must admit however I was looking forward to seeing a horse drawn carriage, with all the pomp and ceremony that goes with it. Where else can a Bride pull it off than going down the Mall!"
After the wedding ceremony Prince William and Princess Catherine will depart by carriage and follow the traditional "processional carriage route" from Westminster Abbey to the Palace in their horse drawn carriage. The carriage route will follow the same route Kate will take on her way to Westminster Abbey.
The Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev. Dr. John Hall will conduct the wedding service and the
Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, will marry the couple. The Bishop of London, Dr. Richard Chartres, who is a friend of Prince Charles, William and Harry, will give the address.
As for the wedding guest list, according to Palace sources the wedding guest list is still being finalized and wedding invitations have not been mailed.
