Happy Monday all! Last Friday was the lovely wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton… now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! I did not get a chance to post a recap with all the work we have around here… to today it is! It was so much fun getting up early and interacting with my friends on twitter while watching the wedding on youtube.com. Did you watch on the television or internet? – I’m curious because it seemed like I was one of the only ones watching it live via the internet.
My favorite wedding day features were the tradition and sentimental value everything had. And that almost everything was locally source in Britain.
I, of course, adored the dress. McQueen has always been a favorite designer of mine and I am so proud of Kate for channeling the classic beauty of a conservative but graceful wedding dress. Similar to that of Grace Kelly. But the best part was that the fabric and lace (with a small French chantilly exception) was British. The pattern had a meaning, the tiara was from the Queen Mother, the shoes were also handmade by the Royal School of Needlework and the earrings were a gift from her parents with the gilded acorn in honor of her new crest.
The trees and flowers were stunning. The cake was breath-taking. The hats were amazing (I have quite a collection & was tempted to wear one out on Saturday!) And the love was apparent. Good Wedding.
