Peppers Marquees, which holds the royal warrant for supplying marquees to Prince Charles, reportedly started setting up the building over the weekend, although with a seating plan to consider, along with the color scheme, flowers, and all-important table decorations, it could be days before the venue is complete. It looks like wedding fever will be sweeping over the Middleton house for the rest of this week.
