October 2011 Weddings

royal wedding

So I couldn't sleep around 4 so I parked it on the couch and admitly I have been teary eyed twice now when I saw william and now catherine.  I think because I am thinking of our own wedding day this year and all the feelings.  

They both look dashing!

Re: royal wedding

  • I agree! I couldn't sleep either and I think it was because I was excited for them lol.

    I only in recent years finally accepted I wasn't going to marry william myself... so I feel a special attachment to them haha ;)

    also we are getting married october 29, which means today is our 6 month mark! lots to celebrate!

    i think the princesses eugenie and beatrice were the worst dressed.. i like eugenies dress (what you could see of it under the coat) but not her hat and I did not like beatrices dress at all. it was very ill fitting. considering what they probably spent on those hats and dresses you think someone would measure her and fit it

  • Did anyone else think Kate's dress is ugly??

  • I love her dress! The top is beautiful. The bottom is ehhh. I guess she had to have a poofy princessy dress.

    I woke up at 5:30 to start watching. FI woke up at 6:15 and kicked me off our living room tv to play video games for work so now I'm sitting in bed watching.

  • Yeah I don't really care for the bottom, but it is  what it is. The top, however is absolutely gorgeous.
  • I think it is very classic.  She had to have fullnes on the bottom to the structure to carry a train.  I think she just didn't want a huge princess dress.  

    I wonder if the younger brothers will become friends?
  • I don't like any of it.  I think it makes her shoulders look very broad.

  • I revise what I said about Beatrices dress slightly- she looked better exiting the car. I still don't like it but it looked like a better fit then.

    i really liked the lace of the dress! I think she probably had a lot of things she had to follow i.e. train, covered shoulders etc so I think it was a perfect, classic choice! Loved the veil on her and hair too.

    Tell me more. What does FI do and how do I break into his business? lol
  • I loved everything!! Kate looked beautiful! (Not a dress that I would choose, but she looked so pretty in it!)
    Now I'm just wishing that we wore more hats like those here in the states! (Except Beatice Eugenie's, didn't like those very much!)

    AHH I meant BEFORE work. I don't know why it came out like that. Hahahaha I wish I knew how to play video games as a job. FI works at a bank.

  • I liked her dress. For something with sleeves it was quite pretty. I loved the veil and tiarra. Her hair looked fablous and I swear thats how I was planning on wearing my hair for my wedding. (I guess I can now just ask for the kate hairdo).

    The only thing I  didnt like her bouquet. I thought that was very ugly.

  • you can be a tester but those don't usually pay that well. 

    I thought her dress was very fitting of her. I liked the lace details at the bottom. I don't think this was what William and Catherine would have said is their idea wedding. Both I from what they have said in the past would rather have an intamite family affiar with lots of nature, hence the trees. 

    I think the dress was understated perfectly
  • I loved her dress. It really showed the times (aka we are in a recession, but shh.. the wedding only costs like 40 million), and the fact that coming into the marriage she is a commoner and not royalty. 

    Loved the tress in the ceremony too.

  • Watching her arrival again - I'm in absolute love with everything about her look.

    I could really watch it over and over! Especially since they're recapping it on every channel ;) haha

  • I said to DF this morning - I feel bad for Kate, as she really didn't get to pick her dress in a normal way. She had so many parameters set for her by the church and the royals. I think she looked good considering what she had to work with.
  • If someone gave me that many restrictions about what I could wear on my wedding day, I'd elope somewhere private.

  • I wish there was more stuff to watch all day... we hit the end of everything around 10am and then it was all re-runs and commentary.

    I'm sure the party is bumpin' at the palace right now! ;)

  • I am excited to get home from work and watch everything that I have DVR'd!

  • Ohh i cant wait to get home and catch up on what I missed. I was able to go into work late so I left right after the kiss, but I like to watch all the re-runs and post commentary. And just re-watch some scenes.


    Usmagazine.com (if I knew how to do a clickly link I would) has just released some pics of the evening gowns. Again Kate's dress is very simple but I LOVE the blinged belt!! And this Pippa, she is really giving Kate a run for her money. She looks equally stunning!

  • I loved her dress. I didn't expect to (nor did I expect to be this interested in the wedding, but I got carried away once I started watching), but I found it lovely, fitting of her, and timeless. Like a PP said, it's not what I would have picked for myself, but I don't have the restrictions that she did. I think it was perfect, and the whole affair was sweet and romantic.

    And, I'm incredibly jealous of her... because she had her day today and I have to wait another 5 months for mine. Laughing

    LOVED her dress! I woke up at 5am and watched until I left for work. I'm fortunate to work with a few Brits so we streamed the kiss live.

  • I loved her dress! She looked beautiful :)
  • got to see it tonight! loved it all - i thought her dress was very classic, it will hold up well over time. when people watch it decades from now, it will still look awesome. and pippa's dress was smoking! loved that... i cried when i saw her with her dad, with her sister and with william. just made me excited for oct! i love all the pomp and circumstance. it's one of those things that don't matter at all, yet are super fun to get into.
