A royal wedding demands an equally royal guest list. But we're convinced it's time to let a few thousand commoners crash the party, too.

What's that? Convinced Westminster Abbey simply can't accommodate throngs of onlookers? Then perhaps the royals should consider one sheikh's decree; he commissioned a custom-built stadium for his guests. When Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai, married a real-life princess in 1981 -- the same year Lady Diana and Prince Charles wed -- a whopping 20,000 guests viewed their vows while seated in this stadium. A large number of "commoners" only seems fitting, since Kate is a commoner, too.

It's rumored that 100 members of the public will receive invitations to the wedding, most likely drawn from charities that William and Kate support. But wouldn't it be cool if 100 random commoners received invitations, lottery-style?
