Keep Calm and Marry On


April 29, 2011

Yes, I gave in and managed to wake myself up at the crack of dawn this morning to watch Wills and Kate tie the royal knot! Let me mention that it was HILARIOUS at the gym this morning with every TV tuned in for the blessed event and even all the hard core bodybuilder men were watching…love it.

So what did you think of the dress? Classic and regal in my opinion and the epitomy of what a princess should look like… everyone kept saying she’d sport something uber fashion forward, but our dear Kate knows better–she looked exquisite and that dress is absolutely timeless…total applause from me!
And, did you happen to notice how much her ensemble resembled another dear princess we all know and love, Grace Kelly from Monaco? Look at the similarities…

Now on to Pippa…hello gorgeousness!! If she thought for one instance that she would simply “blend in”, boy was she wrong. The column silhouette did her body good and I have a feeling there are some chaps in London wanting to give her a shout on the telly very soon.

Last, but not least, we can’t forget to mention–the not one, but TWO kisses–were you all grinning from ear to ear like me? I think everyone knows by now William isn’t much for PDA and showing too much of himself in public, however, he let his new bride have her way and gave in to some adorable signs of affection…well done, Wills, well done! Seriously, how cute are they?
Well, it’s back to work for this lady in waiting… so happy I gave in to the media hype and circumstance and watched this fun fairytale piece of history! And crossing my fingers we’ll get to see more pictures from all the partying and wedding festivities, too!!
  1. I LOVE the dress. There were so many adorable details in their wedding! I will be checking them all out to get ideas for ours!

  2. Her dress is so beautiful and elegant! We just watched the kiss in class, haha, how fun to have a professor project it! I did not get up because I have been way to sleep deprived this week anyways, but I am hoping a friend has recorded it!

  3. Caitlin says:

    I stayed up to watch the wedding and I am so very glad that I did. I had chills throughout the whole thing! It was all so, so stunning!

  4. Kristin says:

    Totally agree with you! The dress is so timeless! I just love it! And this kiss was too much, my pre-wedding emotions totally took over and I definitely shed a couple tears. Too much to handle for us brides-to-be.

  5. Jenna says:

    completely agree! Kate's dress was PERFECT and Pippa looked absolutely gorgeous too! 🙂

  6. Taylor B. says:

    I'm glad you got into the royal wedding spirit! I was not crazy about the dress because it is such a classic and looked so much like Princess Grace's dress. I feel like I've seen it 20 times before so it didn't wow me. I think I had really high hopes for Sarah Burton to deliver an Alexander McQueen label-worthy wedding dress.

  7. I couldn't agree with you more. Kate & Pippa are both absolutely gorgeous! I too caught the end of it at the gym. Such a funny thing. 🙂

  8. Hailey says:

    I can thank my 2 cups of coffee I had yesterday afternoon, they are the reason I was up to watch. HA!

    I loved her dress so much! They both seem so happy. Doesn't it make you even that much more excited for your big day?

  9. LC says:

    I am so happy with her dress choice too! Very classy!

  10. Heather KA says:

    can't wait to watch my DVRed footage tonight. i agree, her dress was STUNNING! and perfect!

  11. Jenny DB says:

    Umm I think PIPPA is trending on twitter. I'm not exactly an US Weekly kindove girl so now I'm off to google to find out who she is 🙂

  12. ashley says:

    I cheated and used my DVR. I am surprised more people didn't do this but rather watched it LIVE. There was no way I was getting up at 4am to start watching! 🙂

    But YES!! I loved her choice, I thought it was exactly what a true elegant princess should wear! And I adored how Price William looked at his new bride! 🙂

    I always love watching the groom during a wedding to see his reaction of the bride! 🙂

  13. MJ says:

    I love the dress too…gorgeous!! And Pippa was just beautiful too. Don't you love the little girl bridesmaid pouting during the kiss, hilarious!

  14. I confess I didn't watch it… but boy do I love that dress!

  15. Kelly says:

    Pippa was just as stunning as Kate – I was blown away. The whole thing was super adorable 🙂

  16. Mrs. SE says:

    I watched WAY too much coverage of this over the weekend! Loved her dress, she is a total vision. And I heard a rumor that girlfriend did her own makeup? Props for that! Totally hoping we'll see pictures of inside the event.
