The only item I will not compromise on...my bouquet of all purple tulips wrapped in a swatch from my Mom's wedding dress.

    I've been watching it too!  Kate looks STUNNING!  Very modern, yet tasteful, as it should be.  She looks amazing.  What a wonderful day for the both of them!

    Good luck in the 'burgh!!  :)

    Oh my goodness... I'm absolutely obsessed with the lace sleeves and neckline on Kate's (or should I say Catherine's) dress!!! gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.... she's so stunning!! Annnnnnd now I kind of want her dress... just sayin'

    I was up bright and early at/around 6am and got ready in the living room rather than the bathroom to watch the wedding! It was so beautiful... did anyone see William mouthing the word 'beautiful' twice to Kate when they were first joined on the altar? I seriously almost cried!

    Other than that, my family comes in tonight for FI's bachelor party this weekend. My mom will stay with me and tomorrow we are going shopping then to dinner with FMIL and FSIL. I also think my Philly shower is Sunday... actually, I'm almost 99% sure it is so that's exciting!

    Hope everyone has a great day/weekend!

    Morning!  I also watched the royal wedding... my friend coerced me with english tea and homemade scones this morning, so a few of us watched.  I actually liked watching a lot more than I thought I would!

    The dress was exquisite and I loved it... McQueen was a perfect choice.  I liked Pippa's dress too.  Didn't really like the bouquet.... and I loved the drop veil (I'm also getting a veil in that style) and the pretty but not overdone tiara.  She looked fantastic.

    YAY! I agree with all pp... Catherine (hehe kate)was absolutely stunning.. her dress.. my goodness im obsessed! I absolutely am obsessed with the lace sleeves. i agree G - i kinda want her dress now too!

    Also her whole look was just amazing.. she was radiant. I'm actually considering a changein hairstyle now.. instead of all up, im thinking half up half down.... esp since the first thing DF said when he saw her this morning (i put it on our tv in the bedroom while we were getting ready for work) that he liked her hair. lol.

    Jl - df read her lips too when she was in the car that said I'm so happy... i almost burst into tears.. infact I would of if DF wasn't standing right there and would of laughed at me...

    I dvr'd the whole thing and can't wait to get home and watch it!

    Hey Everyone!

    So I watched the whole wedding this morning... from 5 am on lol. I love her dress as well, and it was perfect for a royal wedding. However, I am a little bummed that it wasn't a tad more orginal... Ok, before you guys say I'm crazy, I do think it looks too similiar to a cross between Grace Kelly's gown and the gown from the Princess Diaries 2 (although the neckline on that gown was different). So, here is my critique- absolutely beautiful, elegant, and suited to her, but no surprise value. I loved it, but I was underwhelmed. I actually told my FI a few weeks ago that it would have either 3/4 or full length lace sheer sleeves that was also a little see through at the top around her shoulders, and a long train but no where near Diane's train lenght. I guessed pretty good :-)

    So this weekend we plan to go to another wedding in Maryland, and will celebrate mother's day with my mom when we are up there. Not gonna lie- we aren't really looking forward to it. But it will be done in one weekend instead of two as orginally planned.

    I do have some good news though- I got a Drs appointment for Tuesday! Yeay!!! Everyone I talked to is pretty certain my MCL is ripped, but I am hoping that is not the case. However, if it is, the MCL doesn't need surgery typically, which is awesome news for me.

    Jl- One week to go!

    GMC- I thought that was what he was saying but I wasn't sure! Glad someone confirmed it. I loved their kisses on the balcony too. She looked so happy :-)

    Md- I loved Pippa's dress. It was just stunning.

    Gianna- Everything is really great! Work is busy as usual and really everything is the same!

    What more do you have left to do? I know I was ready for the stress to end too! Just try to do as much as you can now, I left a lot of little things go until the last week or so and was unnecessarily overwhelmed!

    oh sari, I did hear it looked like grace kelly's gown and I looked it up and I agree.  But I would say the V neckline of kate's dress, and the structured, pleated back, make it unique and are very "mcqueen" elements


    hope you don't have an mcl tear, and that the weekend is more pleasant than you are expecting.

    oh, and db, I am thinking of stealing her hairstyle idea (down, half up/halfdown) too!

    Hi MD! Great seeing you too! How are the wedding plans? Did you find a dress yet?

    I'm really enjoying hearing everyone's take on Kate's dress, I am trying desperately not to look at it until I watch it later on DVR! I was at the gym this morning and they had it on and I some how managed not to look!

    Trish - I don't have much more to do... just programs (which are already designed I just need to print and assemble them), escort cards once the RSVP's are all in and table assignments are made... hmm - that's about it! lol - I keep feeling like I have nine million things to still do but I don't think I actually do... Great to hear thngs are going well! You should come around more often ;)

    Gorgeous!  Even, if it does look very similar to Grace Kelly's - she looked stunning!  They look so incredibly happy together - makes me even more excited for my big day!  DVR'ed the whole wedding as well - totally watching it tonight!

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I love the dress, I just wasn't really surprised by it like I thought I would be. And I agree Md, the pleats do give it that very mcqueen look. Very good choice in the designer.

    Ok, so even though I wasn't shocked by the dress, I still love that nothing was as 'over the top' as in Diana's wedding (no 25 foot train, huge flowers, etc). I think it was more appropriate for today's culture, and it was very 'them'. The wedding, while similiar in overall structure to Diana's, had wonderful elements that suited the bride and groom and their personalities so well. It was elegant and refined.
     
    I really love the tiara she choose too- stunning but not an 'in your face' kind of tiara (not sure if that makes sense). It was a smaller and simplier tiara than she could have used, which means you focused more on her face than on the tiara :-) I thought it was perfect pick.

    sarilynnep - Its funny you say that. I wanted the Princess Diaries 2 dress forever and when I saw Kate that is exactly what I thought...then Grace Kelly's. I do love it. 
  • edited December 2011
    Kristen- I know! I wanted that dress so bad, and when I looked for a gown for myself I really wanted one that had lace sleeves and all my friends told me no and there weren't that many to chose from. Now I bet there will tons. I'm kinda kicking myself for not waiting.,... grrrrrr
