Inside your average wedding invitation envelope, you’ll find a date and venue details card, an RSVP card and perhaps another card with gift details.
And if you’re attending a royal wedding you’ll also find a seven-page booklet filled with the dos and don’ts for the day.
Among instructions telling guests how to get to the wedding and what to wear, was a list of items banned from the wedding. Some, like cameras and phones, make complete sense, others like medals well, not so much. And the most curious banned item? Swords.
What about wearing white to a wedding? Post continues.
Yep, if you were thinking about bringing that fencing foil, a nice sabre or an Oathkeeper replica, you can just keep that at home, thankyouverymuch.
We wonder if Prince Charles will be exempt from this. He carried a sword at Prince William’s wedding in 2011, while the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry did not.
Guests have been told they should bring their passports to the May 19 event and any “rainwear”, in case the weather turns. But keep any luggage at home and stick to small bags.
