Bridesmaidsâ€™ love Bruce Vilanchâ€” but royal date is just a dream…

A couple of comedy queens weighed in on the Royal Wedding yesterday while passing through town.
â€œBridesmaidsâ€ stars Kristen Wiig and Wendi McLendon Covey havenâ€™t been invited to next weekâ€™s wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, but that didnâ€™t stop the girls from weighing in on whom they would choose for their plus-one if an invite miraculously appeared.
â€œBruce Vilanch,â€ the â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ funnygal told the Track.
As in the outlandish, hirsute comedy writer and â€œHollywood Squaresâ€ square???
â€œI think heâ€™d make out with me,â€ she joked.
â€œIf youâ€™re lucky! Heâ€™s so presentational,â€ Wendi chimed in. â€œI would bring my husband, because no one chicken dances like him,â€ the former â€œReno 911!â€ star said. â€œHeâ€™s fun on the dance floor. Heâ€™s 6-foot-7 and knows how to move. Thatâ€™s a whole lotta limbs.â€
But the box office â€œBridemaidsâ€ werenâ€™t exactly sold on the idea of waking up at 4 a.m. to see the British lovebirds tie the knot.
â€œI think Iâ€™m gonna be on a plane. I think weâ€™re doing press junkets that day. But we sooooo would watch it,â€ said the sarcastic Wiig, who remembered her mother rousting her out of bed early to watch Williamâ€™s parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, tie the knot back in 1981.
â€œYeah, Iâ€™ll DVR it,â€ Wendi agreed jokingly.
Why arenâ€™t we convinced???
