I Now Pronounce You... by DigitalDasherBot I Now Pronounce You... by DigitalDasherBot
Didn't anypony else find that part of the ceremony weird? I thought it was weird. It should have been "mare and stallion", right?

Foal - a young horse not yet one year of age.
Filly - a young female horse.
Colt - a young male horse of not more than four years of age.
Mare - a fully mature female horse.
Stallion - an adult male horse.
(Edit: This is just via a dictionary. For the show's usage, just filly/colt for young ponies and mare/stallion for decidedly older ponies is probably closer. If she had said "filly and colt" I probably wouldn't have thought twice about it. It just seemed weird when it mixed the age groups for that particular phrase.)

Just another quick comic I wanted to get out of my head before I go out of town for a week. Honestly, I could probably do royal wedding comics all summer and not run out of material, but I have to draw the line somewhere, right?

...maybe just one or two more.

No, Celestia adopted Cadance as her niece after she turned her from a pegasus to alicorn. (There was a book or comic about that)

I Just love that implication from Cadance's face at the end when Shining Armor ask her age. That face pretty much says, more than you think.

Shining Armor: How old are you?
Cadance: 221.
Shining Armor: Wha-?!
Cadance: I'm kidding, I'm kidding, you are so gullable.
Shining Armor: Oh, he, I knew that, but seriously, how old are you?

Well, if you count the books as canon, she's over 1000 years old, considering that Sombra didn't rise to power during Luna's banishment, and that Cadance wasn't immediately seen as the Crystal Princess, but, that takes into consideration that the show needs to give us more backstory.

Cadance is 'Tia's adopted niece, as stated in 'Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell'.

Given my knowledge of Equestria,Cadence is probably around her 20's to 30's.Strong evidence suggests pony graduate school probably in pre- to early teenage years.

Wait,if Cadence is Celestia's niece,then one of her siblings has to be her parent and it's probably not Luna.Wait,IS IT?

I think the only place it was ever mentioned was in the Announcement/Ad that ran in the New York Times leading up to the Royal Wedding. img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2012/04/…

Weird but cool. Still, it doesn't make sense because then...Celetia would've had some kind of sister that is married and has a daughter (Celestia's niece), or had a cousin that is married and has a daughter, or she would've just adopted Cadence. Never knew it was mentioned in the NYT.

It bothered me too, but what can you do.

Cadance is not that old though.  She was visibly younger in Twilights Flashbacks, and she was not born an Alicorn.  She Ascended like Twilight (according to "The Crystal Heart Spell" by G.M. Berrow).
