From the GORGEOUS engagement ring, to their (literally) fairytale procession by horse-and-carriage, this wedding has been in the headlines for months. TALK about pressure!
But for Kate, or Catherine rather, her composure and grace have never faltered.
For me, (and I'm a little surprised at myself since my brain is literally half wedding, half theatre right now) I wasn't all that obsessed with it. Actually, Patrick was the one who reminded me last night that the wedding would be this morning. I know it has been ALL over the Twitters, and Facebook and now the news, but it was sort of a back of the head thought. Something I knew I wanted to see, but not something I was willing to wake up at 5:00 in the morning for (Sometimes, I'm a little too fond of pressing the snooze button).
But getting breakfast, I was able to catch my first glimpses of the dress and the ceremony, and the recessional on the news (I had planned on fiendishly browsing the Internet to catch everything later). And I saw this...
Oh. My. GOSH. How gorgeous????!???
Her dress was so beautiful and so stylish, which of course I expected, but WOW! Absolutely stunning! I can't imagine the pressure of having all of the world watch you walk down the aisle, I am already feeling some pressure of my own but for this? Jeeze! Everyone and their grandmother would be judging your dress! Overall, I really think that she chose a dress that exceeded expectations. She looks elegant, like a princess, while maintaining her classy, modern Kate-Middleton-style. (BTWs, just found out she did her OWN hair and make-up---stunning!)
From the little that I have seen so far, it looks like a magical, romantic wedding completely fit for a Prince and Princess. I wish them all the happiness.
As the say across the pond,
