You may have noticed that I haven’t given anything but the tiniest amount of coverage to the royal wedding. You’d think I’d be salivating about the royal wedding, reading all the speculation day and night, but surprisingly I’ve been rather ‘meh’ about the whole thing. I think it has something to do with the fact that, as a couple, I feel rather bad for Kate and William. Their wedding was a State event, not a personal one. Will they remember it forever, fondly? I do hope so. Is it the wedding Kate and William would have wanted under different circumstances? Who knows, but when most people imagine a fairytale wedding, their daydreams seldom involve hordes of people and hundreds of wedding guests invited out of obligation.
But enough of me, always the cynic. The one royal wedding detail that I really cared about? THE DRESS! I’ll admit to really looking forward to finally seeing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, and I was not disappointed. She wore a long-sleeve lace, ivory, and satin wedding dress with a modest 8-foot train and a lace-edged veil paired with a tiara borrowed from her grandmother-in-law. Pics or it didn’t happen:
And in case you are under a rock and haven’t seen any of the coverage, here’s a taste of things:
(Oh, and hats. I definitely care about royal wedding guests’ hats, so look for a post about that in the near future!)
