Dear William and Kate,

Even dyed-in-the-wool modern-minded femmes have succumbed to your wedding brouhaha. After all, how often does one witness a royal wedding? Sure, Hollywood has had its share of self-professed royal figures with the money (if not the sense) to throw over-the-top ceremonies. But an actual, real-life fairy tale? We're so there.

As you prepare for your April 29, 2011, ceremony, it's only natural to recall the July 29, 1981, wedding of William's parents: Lady Diana and Prince Charles. It was a lavish, global spectacle full of pomp and circumstance -- a real-life fairy tale.

Because so many of us fondly remember Di and Chuck's wedding, something Prince William obviously couldn't witness first-hand, we thought we'd share a few things you both should consider including on your big day, next.
