Mom: "So, we're going to watch the wedding, right?"
Me: "Yeah, I'll come over that night and we'll watch it live"
So yes, I was one of those people who followed every single detail about this wedding. I even read one of of the gossipy books about them. Why?? Who knows, except to say that I love everything involving British Royalty and Aristocracy. It probably has to do with my all-time favorite book, Pride and Prejudice, plus a mixture of quality chick-Brit-fics throughout my teenage and young adult years.
So I went to my parents' house yesterday afternoon, slept from 10:30 PM until 2:00 AM, and watched basically from the time the Royal Family entered the Abbey until the Kiss(es) on the Balcony. I then slept from 6:00 AM until 10 AM this morning and drove home (and I have a final tomorrow morning, I'm that hardcore)
Here are some of my reactions from last night and today:
|LOVE! That the Queen wore Yellow! Such a happy color :-)|
(this coming from the girl who almost had her bridesmaids wear yellow and carried yellow daisies)
|I feel for the sisters that the media is saying that Pippa stood out (what bride would want that?) but you can't ignore the obvious fact that Pip is GORGEOUS. And the little kids who made up the wedding party were adorable!!|
|Pip's evening reception dress. Again, might have stolen the spotlight, but hey? she's need a rich and powerful husband now too!|
|Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice - LOVED the bold style from Will's cousins, although the blue dress had a bad fit. But loved the personality in both looks|
|On the balcony - it was remarkably awkward, but they looked very cute and happy. I'm sure they're glad the public part of their celebration is over. Time to party!|
