Question of the Day - The Royal Wedding

What did you like? What did you dislike? Did you get any ideas?


My likes:
-Loved her entrance
-She looked beautiful
-Her sisters dress
-How they gazed at each other
-David & Victoria Beckham

Dislikes
-her bouquet
-certain elements of her dress
-she didn't use a carriage

Ideas
-I loved the different hats the guests wore and think I may incorporate that into my wedding (asking the ladies to wear hats).

They look so happy and in love. Yah!! For William & Catherine "Kate"

    I had not plans to watch this thing but as I always have the news on in the AM while getting ready so I saw some of i.

    Likes:

    ~The ceremony was not as pomp and circumstance as I thought it would be.  It was traditional but light and airy at the same time. 

    ~The wedding couple looked great together.  You can tell they are in love.
    ~Kate's sister looked wonderful.
    ~The Queen looked very nice.
    ~Prince Harry.  You can tell he's the wild one in the family. 
    ~Kate's dress was ok and fit her well.  It wasn't the knockout dress I thought it would be but it was definitely "royal" like.

    Dislikes:
    ~Kate's boquet was very underwhelming.  Who designed that?
    ~ Did anyone see the two hats on two of the princesses??  THEY WERE AWFUL!!
    The princess in pink (could have been peach) looked like a unicorn.



    Love is the ultimate superpower.   
    It can make you weak and strong simultaneously.

    I didn't see the wedding but I did see her dress and I wasn't impress by the bottom half. If I had to wear sleeve I would do it like she did. Her bouquet was horrible. I loved how long her tain was. And I did love the hats. hat themed bridal shower maybe??? And her sister's dress was fab.

    I opened one eye to peek at her dress on the news this morning. I wasn't impressed so I rolled back over and went to sleep.

    I just couldnt get into it, definite overkill.

    I thought she looked beautiful and I loved her dress.  I don't think anything can compare to Diana because it was so over the top, but I thought hers was very classic and elegant, very Grace Kelly.  Watching this made me super excited for my own wedding!

    Hey Ladies!!!  I had to get in on this post cuz I'M ALL ABOUT WEDDINGS and well the Royal Wedding it the be all, end all of weddings IMO.

    Likes:
    the church
    Prince William (yep I got a thing for him and his bald spot...LOL!)
    the top half of Princess Kate's gown
    all the women in attendance wearing hats
    how William & Kate smiled and talked to each other
    Dave Beckham (he can get IT!)

    Dislikes:
    the bottom half of Princess Kate's gown
    her bouquet - SERIOUSLY?!
    her sister (BM) white dress - is it Royal tradition for a BM to wear white as well??
    the Queen's outfit - sorry but that yellow washed her out IMO
    the fact President and First Lady Obama WERE NOT invited -- they had over 900 people at the ceremony; so you mean to tell me the President of the US couldn't get an invite?! - WHATEVER!!!

    That is all my lovey ladies. 

    Happy wedding planning!!!Wink

    I can't believe I missed it - not that I planned on watching anyway. I've only seen her dress, havent seen any other details yet. I'll google it when I get home or I'm sure it will be on the news all day. I didn't really like her dress, but she's a pretty girl and would look good in anything. I wish them well and hope they make it for the long haul.

    I woke up at 1am to watch the beginning of the coverage and I watched the whole thing. I even wore a hate for a short while while in PJs. I tweeted with my friends and a local news reporter that I have kind of become friends with.

    My likes:
    - Kate's dress! She was such a Princess
    -Kate's make-up it was so cool that she did her own make-up.
    - Kate's family
    - The 2 kisses on the balcony
    - the traditions new and old mixed

    Dislikes
    - the bouquet only because I expected more color. I knew it would be simple, but I wanted color.


    Ideas
    -The trees lining the aisles in the abbey. I WANT TREES!

    I seriously was in love with the whole thing. The carriage ride after was beautiful. I have seen a few of these carriage's in person like the one the queen rode in (pictured below).

    I saw a glimpse of it, but it was too much singing (I think it was singing) going on for me. So I left the house. But I did see Kate's dress. It was just ok...nothing fabulous.
