Don't throw flaming rocks at us, please, but there is more royal wedding stuff to be... stuffed.

Wedding planners all over the world watched Prince William and Princess Catherine walk down the aisle last week, pen in hand, jotting down everything they'll need to know going forward. Because you better believe errrrrbody getting married this year is going to want a slice of the royal hooey.

Read the whole story here and start planning your own wedding. Or just be a rebel and elope at the courthouse.
