Here comes the BRIDE!


With so much going on in the world today,
I think it’s really kind of great that the royal wedding could bring so many people together

this mornings wedding was definitely a modern day fairytale.


I have had royal fever for quite some time now… 
that and a long time fascination with the British monarchy.
Put the two together and you get:
Me, waking up at 4 AM to watch Prince William marry his lovely fiance Kate Middleton. 
And even though I am half awake at work today, it was so worth it.

I was just so excited for them.  I couldn’t help but jump up and down and squeal as Kate emerged from the limo.
I got goose bumps … I really am such a girl.
She looked absolutely stunning.
I loved that her dress was created by England’s own Alexander McQueen designers.
 I thought it was simple and beautiful and just so perfect.

And William.
He looked so handsome and sweet and I melted when he mouthed to Kate
“you look beautiful”


It was just such an event, there is so much history behind it all. 
 I think that’s what makes it so exciting to watch.

Thankfully, I get to fall in love with the royal couple all over again  tonight!
My girlfriends and I recorded it and will be having our own little “tea” party tonight as we re-watch!

Oooo I love this too! I think the wedding could not have happened at a more perfect time! We experience tragedy and heartbreak to make the happier moments that much sweeter!

Ok, I am DYING!!! I DVR-ed like a million hours of coverage of the wedding and don't know when I get to watch it!!!! I'm going out of town straight from work and won't come back till Sunday. I think I may cry. I so badly want to surf the internet at work (not like I'm doing that now or anything...) and watch videos but I'm saving myself for my own private viewing party (sobfest). AHHHHHH!!!!

I got up and watched it too! I thought everyone looked great!

Meghan said...

Le sigh. It was just perfection. Kate was so stunning!

Karen Peterson said...

I loved the wedding, loved her dress, and I love this couple. One of the things that made it truly special, to me anyway, was the fact that they've known each other for years and actually married for love rather than for duty or prudence.

Hey, nice to meet you.

I agree. It was just a fairy tale come true. So so beautiful. I just loved it. SO did my 4 year old daughter... she was just dazzled by it all. :)

LCR said...

it was so so beautiful. loved her dress, and so meaningful that she picked alexander mcqueen. loved seeing it on tv:)

JoJo said...

Couldn't agree more the whole experience was orgasmic to watch. As you already know the dress just did it for me, but I've been obsessed with her fashion and their love story for quite some time.

I got up at 5:30.... and I'm not going to lie, the idea of getting my work out done before work appealed a little more to me than watching. I ran while I watched, and still managed some goose bumps!

I am so jealous you have girls to watch with! I would have loved to have a viewing party

I love her dress, too! I thought it was absolutely perfect. I'm sure there are knock offs already being sold. Oh, and when Will said that she looked beautiful, I burst into tears! I am such a hopeless romantic.
Anyways, I hope you had fun at your "tea" party! :)

i can't believe you woke up at 4! i don't know if i could've done that.

oh and i definitely got chills too :)

Kelly said...

It was absolutely stunning - I loved every minute of it. :) Pippa was gorgeous, too!

Nicole said...

I did not follow the happenings surrounding the Royal wedding nor did I watch it because I don't have that kind of time to keep up with the British monarchy. Instead, I chose to check out the highlights afterward and am glad I did because it looked like it was a wonderful event and joyous occasion for the couple.

They seem so in love and Kate, or shall I say, Her Royal Highness, Duchess of Cambridge was absolutely Beautiful! What an awesome and historical wedding!
