Ok. Deep breath. The only way the wedding could have been any better was if I was there in person.
It was understated elegance at it's finest.
Let's just start with the dress.
It was perfection. The Fashionista immediately said, "She drew her inspiration from Princess Grace." She was of course spot on because this was later confirmed by several sources.
Now you know how much I love a man in uniform and neither Prince William nor Prince Harry disappointed. I just kept thinking "Diana would be SO proud of her boys!"
I absolutely adored Pippa's dress. While some commented that she stole the show I would say that she held her own~ beautifully. The cowl neckline...the row of covered buttons on the back...cap sleeves edged in lace...Totally swoon worthy.
The wee ones were a delight as well. While their dresses were reminiscent of those worn by Princess Diana's bridemaids, they were modern, yet sweetly elegant.
The bride's bouquet was perfect for the springtime. I loved that she just really made the day her own in so many of the wedding elements while sweetly capturing some of the essence of Prince Charles and Lady Diana's wedding.
The mother of the bride was absolutely dazzling in her baby blue dress and coat.
Not only did the sun come out for the big day, the Queen was the epitome of a ray of sunshine.
The church itself was lovely. Having visited Westminster Abbey I cannot begin to tell you how vast this massive piece of architectural wonder really is. It was brilliant to bring in large trees to make the space feel warm and welcoming.
While I am not fond of fruitcake, this confection, it has to be said, takes the cake!
Drats! My computer time is up. So may I say that I hope that they live happily ever after!
Up next, this beauty will marry Prince Albert of Monaco in July.
I shall return from France on May 11th.
