The Royal Wedding

Friday, April 29, 2011

Who watched the Royal Wedding?! I woke up at 4AM EST to watch this magical event - so many channels to choose from but I settled on NBC w/ the Today show; Kate (oh excuse me, I mean Duchess Catherine) looked divine! But first let me talk about a few of the other guests.It would have been nice if Princess Diana was there. No doubt she would have looked fabulous, but it did seem like she was there in spirit. Victoria Beckham looked stunning and polished especially with that sleek ponytail, and David Beckham looked quite dashing. I love the way he styled his hair - they're definitely one of my favorite stylish couples. Samantha Cameron, the Prime Minister's wife, I believe was in Burberry, although I was surprised she was not wearing a hat! Also, people on Twitter were tweeting about Pippa's gown, also from McQueen. I thought she should have worn it in a different color other than white though, but she did look pretty. Carole Middleton looked lovely in powder blue. And James Middleton! He's actually hotter than I realized!
Kate is beautiful no matter what but she was gorgeous in that Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress. It was very Grace Kelly. For those who know me, you know how much I love sweet heart necklines and laced sleeves -- I'm a little disappointed because I was dreaming of a dress like that for my future wedding, and now there's going to be a million brides-to-be probably going after the same look. Anyway, the style suited her perfectly - it seemed very classy Kate. She also did her own makeup.
I was close to tears when she entered Westminster Abbey because the whole ceremony was so beautiful. Kate wanted it to be like an English Garden, which explains the trees. I wanted to see more flowers but it definitely seemed more modern that way. Apparently, Harry whispered to William, "Wait 'til you see her" as Kate was making her way down the aisle. Then, William was seen telling Kate, "You look beautiful" as she arrived; so sweet!
The balcony kiss was so quick, it was almost a peck. However, they did give us a second kiss (still short, but a second kiss nonetheless). Overall, it truly seemed like I was watching a fairy tale happening live. Congrats to the now Duke & Duchess of Cambridge! (Although they're Prince and Princess in my mind, just because I like those titles better :P .) What were your thoughts on the Royal Wedding?

The dress is pretty.

Really, all I am looking forward to in regards to the Royal Wedding is E! Fashion Police's take on things. I'm sure Joan Rivers has some amazing crap to say.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I watched! And now I'm crashing as we speak. I only got like 3 hours of sleep! But it was worth it. How many times do you get to see a royal wedding, right? She looked positively stunning!

Have a great weekend, sweetie :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Gorgeous! The Middleton family is so good looking!

HauteMangoGirl said...

i totally agree with you!
first of all, a lot of people i know were like: 'i don't give a damn about this wedding, this whole buzz about it makes me sick' but i could never miss it - i mean, how often does something amazing like this happen?
kate & william make such a beautiful couple. she looked breathtaking and i'm glad she chose sarah burton to make her dress, it's simple yet so detailed - perfectly tailored. harry acted really sweet, too!
the beckhams also looked great, as well as the bride's sister pippa - she could've worn another color, though, you're totally right. and i was also astonished that samantha cameron didn't wear a hat or at least a big feather or something.
if i was in kate's place, i'd be totally overwhelmed by emotions, she took it really cool and graceful.
and finally, i was expecting a looong kiss - it was a splendid event nevertheless!

haha sorry for talking your ear off :)

It was beautiful! They are such a nice and good looking couple.
And it's always nice to see that fairy tales can come true. :)))

Alex said...

Oh I thought the whole thing was wonderful. Despite the scale of the event it still seemed very personal and there was such a sense of warmth and happiness.

I'm looking forward to all the fashion coverage in the papers tomorrow. The BBC did a pretty good job but I'd love some closeup photos of some of the outfits. The Princess from Monaco (I think she's an ex Olympic swimmer?) looked unutterably stylish.

I pulled an all-nighter to watch this wedding. It was very beautiful. Kate looked stunning, which obviously was no surprise. I have to admit I was a tad disappointed with her makeup and I did not know she did her own makeup until I read this post. I just felt like her face needed more shine or a tad more color. But other than that, she looked perfect.

I loved seeing all the fabulous hats in the audience! Hehe.

It was definitely the wedding of the century! (Or, at least, until their first born gets hitched, lol).

Empress said...

So beautiful! Catherine looked amazing and so did Victoria in Victoria Beckham collection.

I saw the whole wedding as well. I thought Kate looked so stunning and I loved her McQueen dress. And I was close to tears at points as well.
And both Prince Harry and Prince William looked so handsome.

Personally, I absolutely adored the bodice of her wedding gown; but I was even further smitten with the dress she wore to the after-party/reception. Ohmigosh gorg! :)

Gracey said...

I didn't watch it, but I did catch the highlights of it! It was so beautiful, and so was she.

Grace said...

I did get up for it--I was the only one of my friends! It did remind me a lot of Grace Kelly's dress, and I love that she did her own makeup and looked flawless.

Maddy said...

I loved it! Even though it was a formal affair, I think you could definitely spot the intimacy between Will and Kate! The stolen glances, the kiss was tender...I loved it!

Hi Audrey,

I loved watching the wedding and think everything was perfect.
They make such a beautiful couple and yes, it was hard not to have a few tears of joy for them.

I didn't have very high hopes, for some reason. Royal weddings are usually not to my liking that much, I guess. But I loved her dress, and her flowers. She did GOOOOOD! :)
