I guess I can stop waiting by the phone with my tiara on...

Because Prince William married Kate Middleton this morning in a grand and beautiful ceremony.

I will admit that I was slightly disappointed by the tiny bouquet she carried (although I understand the symbolism behind the choice - read HERE for those details) but her regal gown that was simple and beautiful, more than made up for that.

And call me crazy but I actually liked the ensembles chosen by Fergie's daughters. Yes they were a bit wacky, but did you see some of the other feathered hats the ladies wore? I thought these were spunky (although I would have chosen a different color than beige for Princess Beatrice, as I think it washed her out).

My grandmother used to have a hat that matched every outfit. She was so precise that she had a closet that was floor to ceiling with hat boxes, all labeled, and complete with matching costume jewelry on the inside of which to wear appropriately with the hat. And we wonder where my OCD and/ or fashion obsession come from... Here are just a few quick shots of some of the other hats on display at the nuptials that reminded me of my Grandmother (she would have rocked every single one of theses!)

This wouldn't be a proper blog post about the royal wedding without pictures of Kate & William's royal smooch! Warning: major swoon factor ahead ;)

Are you like me and can't get enough of the Royal Wedding? Here is a lovely slideshow of images from the event: The Royal Wedding via The Telegraph


  1. I loved loved the wedding! It's was wonderful!

    I'm a sucker for a good love story!

  2. Excited to watch this evening (I taped it). All the photos have been just lovely though!
