Attention bosses around the world: There is going to be a whopping drop in productivity on your team on Friday, April 29, as Prince William and Kate Middleton have announced that's the day their wedding will be.

The sure-to-be-grand nuptials will take place at London's Westminster Abbey, where many thought they'd get married. The only other real candidate for location was St. Paul's Cathedral, but the couple decided the Abbey would suit them better.

In a statement issued by St. James Place, reps for William said that while the wedding certainly won't lack an awe factor, it will be toned down.

"Prince William and Miss Middleton want to ensure that a balance is struck between an enjoyable day and the current economic situation ... To that end the royal family and the Middleton family will pay for the wedding."

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron also made a statement in relation to the news, saying that "the wedding of Kate and William will be a happy and momentous occasion," and that the day will be treated "as one of national celebration, a public holiday will ensure the most people possible will have a chance to celebrate on the day."
