DH won't wear a Tux. He will be in a Black suit. Neither will the other gentlemen in our group. They will all be in suits..

As for a gown.. Not to the floor gown no, but I do have a fancy Black & White sleeveless halter top type dress that goes down to my kness or so.. I wore it once, last September on our cruise..



Thanks to ALL for the get well wishes and thanks for sharing your Nasal stories with me.. It does help ease my mind a bit..

I went with a nice dress and a skirt and top... will plan on something like that again... the last long dress I wore was in a wedding... hot pink with matching shoes... sort of a Carmen Miranda type dress... can only imagine what Ian can come up with to match that!!!

I do believe Donna that you and Harry are going to try and get away with only a carry on for this cruise... come on...you did 2 weeks with only one bag each...

I'm still working on it... but I will expect my Royal Contingent to act appropriately if my absence on crucial business delays my journey... or else they may find themselves banished to a less civil kingdom....

If you can do it, I recommend Tuxman. He can be found on Ebay, but I went directly to them. Something to keep in mind is that you'll be down in WDW in May, and shipping to Florida (which would be cheaper than the UK).

Mind you, they were used, former rentals, but I think they were fine.

If I really needed a tux and wore one often, they would not be what I would have chosen, but as a "costume" for an event night they were fine.

The tuxes will be only one of our outfits. We still have the wedding wear to work in, but that is more appropriate for something during the day. It's not appropriate evening wear, unless one is going to promenade and then sit and have a drink in a nice piazza.

So you plan on your Subjects to behave if you are late and can't keep them in line? I'm sorry did you forget who was all involved here?

I always laugh when this minor detail gets brought up. More importantly, have your aunt/uncle or cousins even told you if there is a party that week(end)??? Can you ask??? just book it already...

I think she said if Ian and Sukie don't behave like formal dignitaries then they will be stuck in the slums with me

It's not that I have anything against you common people. You are a credit to your class. But, well, to acknowledge one in front of the public eye. That is another matter altogether.

I will be very happy to give you a cordial "hello" below stairs.
