big influence on weddings to follow. 2 billion people watched. everybody was impressed with the retro vibe of her dress. people have been comparing it to grace kelly. you might see a strong influence in wedding fashion of retro '50s vibe. i think you are going to see people wearing their hair down instead of off. it looked so great on kate. everyone commented on her earrings. >> reporter: because they are bigger? i noticed them, too. it's funny you say that. >> with her hair down, the diamonds against the dark hair stood out. they were large enough that we saw them from far away. if only we had a mother-in-law that could lend us jewelry like that, right? >> only a few of us can marry a prince, right? >> only a few. >> reporter: looking ahead, this is the ultimate wedding in terms
of extravagance, for people who don't have the means, what is the key to throwing a simple, yet elegant wedding? >> the best thing to do is limit the size. smaller weddings cost less. another thing you can do is consider having your wedding in a venue like a hotel where they have linens, chairs, florists, caterers in one place. the thing i like about working for seven by seven weddings, we cover multimillion dollar weddings and very simple weddings. in the simple, creative weddings, they are as interesting as the big glam weddings. if you can't go big and live large, go creative. >> i like it. thank you for your time this morning. all good information. >> thank you. >> reporter: the royal wedding breakfast is going to has been here at 9:30 this morning at the

can use it to call england for a few cents, if you need to. calls within america are free. it converts your telephone into a regular phone. it voip is not uncommon but you can get a second line and make your cell phone ring on it. enhanced 911 still works. they are pricey, $250 but cheap after that because you are not paying as much for home phone service. there you go. great alternative. >> anyway we can save money, that's always good. >> starting monday, today in the bay is hitting the road. we are going live to 20 bay area cities in 20 days. >> bob redell has a look at the first location on monday.
