A toast! To the happy couple!

Seriously, where is the hairnet? She IS wearing the necklace, but the hairnet was so much more elegant.

Maybe it's buried in all that hair? Then again, Joffrey's cake looks like it's made of E-Z Cheese, so maybe the hairnet isn't needed at all...

Also WOW Tommen is huge now.

I'm sure their entire marriage will be joyful.

No lovely hairnet? Too bad. Nice to know the season is opening with a wedding, though.

Was that a Dragon over King's Landing? Am I forgetting something?

What's really going to be the sucker punch this season is the final confrontation between the imp and his lady friend.

She does have that nice necklace from Dontos though.

After all that blood was spilled at the last wedding, I'm glad this wedding will be a much more joyous occasion.

The hairnet was replaced with a necklace. Not sure why, but going with it.

Tommen looks way too big to be playing with Ser Pounce who may have the Warged Spirit of Ned Stark doing bad things to Lions.

Oh, I do NOT like the loss of the hairnet. The purple on auburn was one of my happiest mental pictures, for a variety of reasons, including aesthetic. I took the necklace as just a necklace, because I am naive, apparently. Hairnets are better. It's less likely to show when they are a little damaged, for instance.

It just seems like such an unnecessary change.

(If that's Tommen standing next to Cersei in that picture -- damn, he's huge! -- he looks like a veritable Joffrey CLONE.)

I'm beyond pleased that the wedding is so soon! I thought they'd leave us hanging for half a season at least.

It IS the necklace Dontos just gave her that she is wearing in this shot.

I think the change makes sense, given the hairstyle Sansa always has. A hair net would look odd.

Ooooh, a royal wedding! Pass the pie, please.

Still smiling at Jaime's line from last episode. "Ser Preston will be stationed here by the... primary entertainment."

I've read the books, the other people in my house haven't. Somehow my constant refrian of "but I'm sure Joff's wedding will be lovely" doesn't have them convinced.
Still, I'm looking forward to seeing their reactions :)
