The Royal Wedding

by Suzy Nielsen on April 29, 2011

We realize, of course, that there will be 100′s of posts about the royal wedding today. I just thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite things, and maybe hear what you enjoyed most, as well.

 

The Dress

I mean come on, lets be real; this is what all the women are waiting to see. Right? Personally, I think it was perfect, and so very Kate. Elegant and fashionable and she didn’t absolutely swim in it. Thank goodness (Poor Diana). Also, a lovely nod to Grace Kelley’s dress. And who doesn’t think Grace Kelley wasn’t the epitome of fashion.

The Flowers

Again one can’t help but notice the similarities to Grace Kelley’s bouquet. But how sweet. I like that it wasn’t so large it overshadowed the dress. Anything more and I think it would have been too much. Also The symbolism of the Lily Of The Valley is very sweet. It is a symbol of humility and the return of happiness.

And then the Abbey. It was meant to look as a spring garden. No mean feat for a rather austere building, and it was beautifully done, don’t you think?

The Groom

A real Prince Charming! . . . . sigh

I could go on and on and on. Don’t worry I won’t, because I would love to hear from you. What did you love most about the wedding?

Nice post, Suzy. I love the expression on the face of the little girl on the left of the last photo. So funny!
