The Royal Wedding

Did anyone else watch it? I didn't have plans to watch it but I am so thankful that Abigail woke me up just in time to watch Kate arrive at the Westminster Abbey.

It was one of the most romantic and beautiful things I have ever seen. The music was incredible. Those little boys can hit some crazy high notes. I LOOOOVED all of the fantastically large hats worn by the women at the wedding.  Almost all of them were beautiful, except the beige one right behind the queen worn by Beatrice. She looked like she had gigantic antlers on her head. It was ridiculous.

Kate's dress was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! I wish I had a picture for you but google is currently not showing any. Google it later. It was simple and romantic. I couldn't have pictured her in anything more beautiful. Oh and her tiara? Yea that beautiful piece of jewelry was given to the Queen on her 18th birthday. She gave it to Kate as a gift. How ROMANTIC???!!!?!? I know I've used that word a lot but that is for good reason.

Pippa Middleton, Kate's Sister's dress was white as well...and also absolutely beautiful. I can't get over the simple elegance of the wedding. It was amazing. I'm so in love with this whole wedding.

If you asked my husband he would huff and puff and be a huge downer about this whole event. I don't know if men just really are pathetically masculine or if it's just my husband but you would think it would kill him to just keep his mouth shut and let everyone else enjoy this. He thinks everyone is enjoying this because of the money and extravagance of it all. I swear he is incapable of being excited about anything I'm excited about. Sometimes I wish I married a female. Then I'd be able to sit around and gush over things like this without feeling inferior.

On a different note, did anyone catch that fashion magazine editor's name? Plum Sykes. Probably not related but cool none the less.

If you didn't get to watch this try and find it online. It was such an amazing moment in history. It makes me want to move to Britain. The US is overrated. I want the beauty of history not the glam that we produce.

Anyways, I hope everyone has enjoyed or is still enjoying this incredible site.

EDIT: Apparently William first saw Kate's father and whispered " I thought we were just doing a small family affair?" For anyone who thinks these Royal's are all stuffy, seriously, think twice. Even the Queen seemed relaxed and just purely happy.

Something that baffles me, which shouldn't, is that all of these people can be flooding the streets without police with weapons pushing them back and having it become some gross happening. It's sad that as an American I associate high security and weapons to a public event. Another reason to move to Britain.

  1. I watched it! She was absolutely stunning!!!! I was completely and utterly in love with her dress, and my mom and I were debating on how long the train was :P I couldn't get over all the hats, some were pretty out there! I remember the one you're talking about, and I thought it looked like antlers too :P
