The Royal Wedding!

29 Apr

The day is finally here!  Congrats to William & Kate, now also known as the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.  Kate is only living every little girls dream today, she is marrying her Prince, and he really IS a Prince!

I wasn’t up at 4am, but I was up at 5:30 for the gym and I was able to catch the motorcades and the beginning of the ceremony.  Once I made it into the office we were able to replay the broadcast of the whole event in our “party” room.

We set up our laptops, poured the mimosas, dug into some muffins and sat in aw while we watched.

Oh and we totally planned to wear our own “Fascinators” as they call them.  We were really in the Royal Wedding spirit!  But of course, we were also working very hard;)

I was SO excited to see what Kate would decide to wear.  She went with a design by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.  It was stunning!  She looked just like a modern version of Grace Kelly.

Her sister Pippa’s dress, also designed by Sarah Burton, was beautiful.  It looked like the dress was a bit difficult to get around in, but other than that, I thought it was perfect for her.

On to the details!  Kate decided to wear the Cartier ‘Halo’ Tiara and a hand-embroidered veil.  I thought both pieces were simple and elegant.  Her earrings, a gift from her mum, coordinated so well!

You can find out more about each of her accessories and where you can get look-a-likes in your budget from Bridefinds.com 🙂

One of my favorite things about a real “London Affair” are the fascinators!  I really wish we would pick up on this trend here in the US.  I would be rockin’ my fascinator for every event!  Here are some of my favorites, as well as some that I would give a big thumbs down too…

Carole Middleton - Thumbs up!

Marie-Chantal, Princess of Greece - Thumbs up!

Beatrice & Eugenie, cousins of William - Thumbs down 😦

The Queen - Thumbs up! Of course!!

Sophie, Countess of Wessex - Thumbs up!

Sophie, Countess of Wessex - Thumbs up!

There were SO many to see!  I could go on for pages, but I won’t bore you:)  If anyone wants to have a fascinator/hat party, I’m there!!

The accessories were not everything of course.  There were so many other things I was excited to see this morning.  Including exchanging of the vows, they both remained so calm and graceful.  I fear I could be an utter mess on my big day…I tend to cry a lot:)

The wedding party, a small party filled with so many cute faces:)  How adorable are these little girls and the boys in their uniforms!

And last but not least, what the world was waiting for all morning….The Kiss!  Congrats again to the happy couple.  I can’t wait to see all of the reception pictures start popping up online:)
