  凯特和威廉王子今日大婚,算是吸引全球目光的一件大事啦。伦敦那边早早就开始了清理街道和大大小小的安全检查,以威廉王子婚礼为主题的公交卡和纪念品也因此大受人们欢迎。目前婚礼已经进入倒计时阶段,据说到时全世界将有20亿人观看现场直播。

  来宾阵容多也很强大,前阵子英国媒体披露的嘉宾名单中就包括英国王室、欧洲王公贵族、各国政要、宗教领袖、慈善团体、体育界和文艺界名人。想想要参加这么高规格的王室婚礼,一定规矩也少不了吧。虽然咱没机会近距离感受现场氛围,但假想一下总可以的。

  你看我就刚刚做了个美梦,梦见自己收到了英国王室发来的威廉王子婚礼的邀请函,可这梦来得太仓促,我光记得自己窃喜和忐忑不安了,还没等到婚礼仪式开始就醒了,真是太遗憾了。

  有没有人愿意和我一起继续假想的?如果你有幸成为婚礼来宾中的一员,到底需要做哪些准备呢? 这点也不必太担心,因为据说所有来宾都会收到一份指南,其中包括如何前往婚礼仪式所在地威斯敏斯特大教堂、何时到达、婚礼仪式正式开始的时间之类的具体细节。(Anyone who is invited to the royal wedding will be given detailed instructions on how and when to arrive at Westminster Abbey, where the wedding is being held.)另外,这场婚礼的策划兼礼仪顾问也为大家提供了很多贴心小贴士,听听专家的指点就明白该怎么做了。

  注意事项一:切勿迟到。(The first rule: Don't be late.)

  话说这么大的活动要是迟到未免也太不像话了吧。人专家说了:“在新娘和其随行人员到达教堂之前,女王应该是最后一个到达的人。”("The queen should be the very last person to arrive at the church before the bride and her attendants," said wedding planner and etiquette adviser Sarah Hayward.)人们参加普通的婚礼都有提前20分钟到场这种约定俗成的规矩,更别说是人家的王室婚礼了,毕竟是那么多社会知名人士重量级贵宾到场,安检规格必然很高不能有丝毫疏漏。所以咱得学会:give yourself plenty of time to get there.(为确保不迟到一定要留出富裕的时间。)

  注意事项二:穿着要得体。(Next, choose an outfit that blends in.)

  根据专家提示,到场女士应穿礼服,礼服不能太短不能太暴露,不能是白色的和新娘的礼服撞车。(Women should wear a dress -- not too short, not too skimpy and certainly not white.)之前我参加中式婚礼时曾被人告诫过,除了白色红色要回避外,还不能穿黄色(据说容易联想“搅黄了”所以不吉利)、黑色(不喜庆,参加葬礼才选呢)。这么说来,皇家婚礼反倒对颜色没有那么多的限制。不过,和普通婚礼不同的是,参加王室婚礼的英国女子大都会再配上一顶帽子或是带有羽毛或宝石装饰的发饰。(Most British women will complete the look with a hat or a fascinator -- a small feathered or jeweled hairpiece attached to a clip or a comb. )当然啦,新娘的大好日子不能喧宾夺主抢了新娘的风头,所以专家指出:"Never ever do anything to draw too much attention to yourself. It's the day the bride shines." (注意举止不要太引人注目。这是新娘的大好日子,要把闪亮的机会留给新娘。)

  另外,军人要穿军装。其他男士要穿普通西装或正式场合穿的礼服(包括长风衣和西式马甲在内的正装)。在教堂里要摘下礼帽。(Men in the armed forces should wear a military uniform. Male civilians are asked to wear either lounge suits -- business suits by another name -- or a morning suit, formal attire that includes a long jacket and a vest. A top hat should be carried, not worn, inside the church. )

  如果是夫妇俩一同参加这场婚礼,应该留意服装是否搭配。这次大家可以着重留意一下小贝夫妇,这两人一惯是引领时尚潮流的达人,应该不会令大家失望的。专家指出:伴侣们要切记两人是在同一场合中同时出现(Couples should remember they will be seen together)。虽然着装色系不必统一,但应确保总体造型搭调(“You don't need to be color coordinated but do think about how your outfits look together.")有些人不太注意这些细节,夫妻俩一同参加活动,一个人穿着休闲,另一个人却打着领带穿着正装,感觉很不搭,好像是出席不同的活动一样。("Often you see a husband and wife who look like they are going to two different events," says William Hanson, an expert on protocol who gives lessons around the world on proper behavior. "One person will be in something that looks like pajamas and the other is in black tie. You don't need to be color coordinated but do think about how your outfits look together." )

  注意事项三:如果手机获准入内,则应将其调至震动或静音状态。在这天上Twitter微博或更新Facebook状态,也被视为没有礼貌的行为.(Tweeting or updating your Facebook status during the day is also bad manners.)

  专家提到,入场时保安可能会要求来宾不要将手机带入教堂,但如果婚礼当日无这方面的限制,他们可以把手机带进教堂的话,就必须保证在进行婚礼全球直播时,全球上百万的观众不会听到他们的手机铃声。(话说大S婚礼时要是严格限制来宾携带手机入场的话,也就不至于出现口水大战了吧?我倒觉得,有直播的话带不带手机还真无所谓。)(Guests may be asked by security to leave their cell phones outside the Abbey, but if they aren't, they need to make sure a ringing phone is not heard by millions during a service broadcast live around the world. )专家这不是已经打过预防针了,如果谁的手机在教堂里响起,就算铃声是英国国歌《天佑女王》也是很大的失礼("The ultimate faux pas would be to have your mobile phone go off in the Abbey, even if you had 'God Save the Queen' as your ringtone")。

  还有就是,现在通讯太发达了,先不说八卦记者们的职业习惯,单就这么多的微博控,离开手机一会儿手指就发痒,还真的得提前打好招呼才行。专家补充说,王室婚礼虽然备受瞩目,可同时也是个私人活动,人们不应该利用自己身为来宾的优势大肆拍照上传微博转播现场消息。"It's a private occasion and it would certainly be an abuse of the invitation to take photos or tweet during the ceremony or any point in the day."

  注意事项四:教堂婚礼仪式过后,将有约600位来宾受邀参加白金汉宫的招待会。专家为此特别建议宾客礼貌的进食(Accept the offerings politely),不要见了美食美酒太激动,在招待会上狼吞虎咽,并切记不要喝醉。(Don't gobble, don't gulp -- and for goodness sakes don't get drunk. 对于酒量的把握,我挺喜欢这种说法的:Never drink to feel better, only drink to feel even better.(绝不借酒浇愁,只为好事喝酒助兴。)

  所以说来宾要本着小酌怡情、细嚼慢咽的原则,并切记喝酒要适度。(Sip your drink, don't gulp it and always be aware how much alcohol you can tolerate)毕竟在大众面前出丑不是件光彩事,得罪了英国王室,这辈子也别想参加类似的婚礼了。("Don't embarrass yourself otherwise for you can guarantee you will never be invited to this kind of wedding again.")

  注意事项五:来宾在使用肢体语言时也需多加小心。(Guests should also watch their body language.)

  据说奥巴马夫人米歇尔·奥巴马在2009年访问时,曾很友好地把手搭在女王伊丽莎白二世的背上,女王并没介意,还环腰搂了米歇尔,但专家还是建议来宾还是要注意保持一定距离和分寸。(Michelle Obama put a friendly hand on Queen Elizabeth II's back during a visit in 2009. The queen didn't seem to mind -- she even put her own arm around Mrs. Obama's waist -- but guests at the royal wedding should be more distant. )这就包括:“不要触碰女王。不要主动与女王或是其他王室成员交谈。”("Never touch the queen. Never initiate conversation with her or any member of the royal family. They will do all that." )

  注意事项六:以前的规矩是人们要向女王极其家庭成员行屈膝礼或鞠躬。现在虽然王室已经不再坚持这一规矩,但大多数人还是会在与女王见面时,鞠躬或行屈膝礼。(British citizens or members of the Commonwealth countries would traditionally curtsey or bow to the queen and her family. The royal family no longer insists that people do so, but most people still do bow or curtsey when meeting the queen.)

  专家的建议是:见到王室成员不用太夸张,男子只需要点一下头,女士只需左脚在前、右脚在后,双膝微屈一下就可以了。”("Nothing too theatrical, " said Hanson. "Men should just bow from the neck -- a nod really -- and women should do a slight dip with their right foot behind their left foot.")

  注意事项七:婚礼仪式结束后,凯特就正式成为王室的一员了,宾客应该像对待其他王室成员一样对待她。(After the wedding ceremony, Middleton will be a full member of the royal family and should be treated in the same manner as her in-laws. )

  最后一条是以不变应万变:Experts say if a guest is unsure about how to behave, they should just take cues from the people around them.所以如果你不知道自己该怎么做的时候,可以看看周围人的反应并及时跟进学习。
