royal wedding

i know a lot of people were excited for the royal wedding months ago, but it took me until yesterday to muster up anything beyond curiosity. which is weird, because i used to be such an anglophile. maybe it's because i hate doing things if everyone else is, or because i am not a super-romantic girly girl.

but i did turn on the tv yesterday, at a normal hour, and caught bits and pieces of the big event. i couldn't believe how loud the crowds were and it makes me a little bit sad to think of how many people they had to share their special day with, but it was fun to watch and so lovely. i enjoyed learning bits of history and trivia and loved seeing everyone decked out. oh the hats!

i thought that kate looked beautiful. i've always loved lace wedding gowns and i love to see brides looking more elegant than sexy.

i also loved kate's sister, pippa's dress. first of all, pippa! best. name. ever. and i can't believe she wore white! i think her dress would even make a beautiful wedding gown.

here's my favorite outfits. oh how i wish we dressed up like this.

posh and becks. look at those shoes!

I too wasn't really curious until yesterday, but now find myself into it perhaps a bit too much. I'm totally fascinated with the royal family! Sorta wish I belonged to one...

I, too, avoided getting into it, but I watched it after the fact and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Good thing I didn't get into it before. I think Kate is sooooooo beautiful and the wedding/whole story is EVERY WOMAN'S DREAM. It's a freakin' real life fairytale!!! Also, I am with Pippa's dress. I want it. As you can tell, I am now unecessarily obsessed. :)

oh i agree. i wasn't into it at all until i started watching and then i was hooked. i loved the dresses too- and i was so glad she went so classy. but at the end of the day, i was super glad to have had a wedding in a backyard, with my closest... 800 friends...cough. but seriously, she was like panting in that church- so much pressure!! a true cinderella story though, and we do love those!
