Didn’t make the cut for the Royal Wedding guest list? Fear not: Yahoo! has you covered. The Royal Wedding website, which launched Monday, is an extension of women’s lifestyle site Shine from Yahoo!.

Content on The Royal Wedding includes: articles and blogs featuring the latest news about the event, trends, fashion, participants, and guests; original video content, including joint ABC News/Yahoo! Web show Wedding Royale, along with video from The Associated Press, Reuters, and ABC News; a broadcast and Web tie-in with Access Hollywood; a Royal Wedding Yahoo! Guestbook, which enables users to send their best wishes to Prince William and Kate Middleton, and even to mix in some marital advice; photo galleries; a mobile site; and live streaming of the April 29 wedding.

The site will also hold the “Live It Up Like Royalty” sweepstakes, allowing users who sign the Guestbook or Like Shine from Yahoo! on Facebook to vie for the grand prize of a trip to Las Vegas.

Outside of the United States, Yahoo! said there will also be localized Royal Wedding sites in 10 countries, including Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and several in Europe.
