I'm Tweeting the royal wedding tomorrow morning for LOVE magazine. My gorgeous friend Giles Deacon is keeping me company which will definitely be lots of fun. I'm getting rather excited now, I do love a wedding and this one's going to be pretty amazing.
I've Sky plussed every Wills and Kate documentary this week, I shall have a look at those in a bit. I've studied the guest list and I'm ready to go.
We're not going to the actual wedding, we shall be watching live from the comfort of my TV/hangover room above. A few close friends will be joining us - Pablo Flack and David Waddington the owners of Bistrotheque, Hazel Robinson from Giles/House of Jazz and LOVE Fashion Editor Jean-Marc Masala.
As the wedding coverage starts at 8.30am I asked Giles if he wanted me to do some food. Luckily he always picks easy things. He asked for cocktail sausages and mini Scotch eggs. We thought it would be funny to do something retro so I'm making a cheese and pineapple and cheese and cocktail onion hedgehog. Does anyone remember those? You wrap a large potato or a grapefruit in silver foil and stick cocktail sticks in it. Then you put a face on it! I told my best friend Spencer and he thought I was taking the piss. He was born in 1979 so missed that delight of 1970's English party cuisine. I don't think I've had one since the last big royal wedding in 1981 when I was twelve.
I bought some red tulips, Hazel's bought some white flowers and I was going to go to my local party shop and get some Union Jack bits and bobs, until the kind people at Anya Hindmarch sent us two of these lovely goodie bags.

The bags contain an Anya Hindmarch canvas tote bag, a flag, some red, white and blue heart-shaped confetti and a 'Kate and William Forever' tattoo. Thanks girls!
I'm dying to see what everyone wears (especially Victoria Beckham who Giles is friends with) and of course the star of the show, Kate's dress! Women's Wear Daily did a piece where they asked various designers to come up with a dress for her. Here's a selection.
Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel
Peter Copping at Nina Ricci
Angela Missoni for Missoni
Frida Giannini at Gucci
I would love the fabulously talented Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen to design the dress. It would be by far the boldest and most brilliant choice. I hear there are three dresses... we shall see. It would be fantastic to see Kate in a McQueen creation.

I really hope Kate goes down the aisle wearing McQueen. Rumours are the shoes are by Gina.
If anyone would like to make a comment during the wedding please follow us, email me or tweet me here...
Have a great time everyone and wishing Kate and William a wonderful day xxx
