Gotta do it

With my obsession with weddings did you really think I wouldn't post about the Royal Wedding today? Please. I live for this shit. This is my super bowl times a million.

I was up at 5:30am to watch the festivities. And yes that's earlier than I got up on my own wedding day.

Quick thoughts on everything:

-Kate = STUNNING! I mean seriously, girl made a gorgeous bride.

-The dress- I heart her dress big time. Beautiful, classy, timeless. Well done. Very similar to Grace Kelly's dress which I also loved. Not that that should be a surprise since I wore a lace dress myself.

-Prince William- not a fan of the red suit, I think he should have gone with black like Prince Harry.

-Pippa- LOVED LOVED LOVED her dress and I'm so glad she went with something more modern than some poofy monstrosity.

-Westminster Abbey- Gorgeous church. Really beautiful. Though I don't get the whole audience facing the aisle seating. Can someone explain that to me? Personally I wouldn't have wanted to be there, most of those guests couldn't see a thing.

-Ceremony- I really enjoyed watching them exchange vows and the ring (wish William had a ring as well) but once all the music and readings started I went to take a shower.

-The Kiss- I missed this because I was driving to work but thanks to my faithful DVR I will watch it later.

-Titles- so the newlyweds will now be titled with Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Personally I wish they could just go by Prince William and Princess Catherine but I guess there are rules and shit. To me she'll always be a princess.

Overall I thought the wedding was beautiful and I can't wait to hear about more of the details of the reception/after party. Yep I'm a sucker for royal weddings.

Did you watch?

I DVRd and watched the ceremony and kiss this morning. She looked really beautiful. I loved loved her dress. I don't understand why hes not wearing a ring and I wish the kiss would have been a tad bit more.

It's on my TiVo, and I'll be watching it in between work throughout the day. I think my fascination with the whole fairy tale aspect... Kate is a normal girl... that and my ancestors date back to British royalty, so they're kinda like family, right??? :)

I think it is due to the Anglican Church that people face each other. My university has Anglican roots and in our Chapel on campus the pews face the center.

Yes, I watched while me and my girls were getting our nails done the morning before my wedding. It was neat to have my wedding follow theirs.. it got me excited for ours, and I loved it :) Kate looked absolutely stunning!
