Betting on the Color of Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress a Sure Thing?

Color of Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress

With news on Tuesday that guests of the Royal Wedding are not to show up in white or ivory, experts speculate the rationale behind this policy involves conflicts with bride Kate Middleton’s wedding dress color. 

Indeed, ivory was the small favorite at Bookmaker.com and Don Best TV host Pat Williams was quick to point out during his bi-weekly segment with Gambling911.com’s own Jenny Woo that oddsmakers there may have gotten an “inside tip”.  So much for Jenny’s “goth” pick on a black wedding dress (40/1 odds).  (Watch the video segment featuring Jenny Woo here)

The order not to wear white was part of a 22-page “etiquette guide” sent out by the Palace on Tuesday.  Those colors are reserved for the bride.  Alas, reservations are made to be broken!

Kate is keeping her wedding gown pick a deeply held secret from Prince William…and presumably the press.  The guide itself could be a ruse. 

The Telegraph calls her plan “a cloak-and-dagger operation worthy of a Dumas plot,” reporting that three different dresses are currently being commissioned. 

Tuesday’s announcement prompted Bookmaker.com to temporarily take down its Royal Wedding odds.  Below we have published the odds coming into Tuesday.
