God Save the (Mc)Queen

To tell you the truth, when it comes to royal weddings, I'm more interested in the six weddings of Henry VIII via The Tudors. I'll confess that I have to stifle an eye roll when I hear that "the girl next door" is finally marrying her prince. Considering her parents are footing most of the $10 million wedding, she certainly wouldn't live next door to me. (Now, if my upstairs neighbor Frank who likes to move furniture at 3am married a princess, that would be cool. Especially if it meant he was moving.)

I spent the morning thinking about how I'd much rather be Queen Elizabeth (the Cate Blanchett version) than just marrying into the royal family. Sure, Kate is going to have a fairytale life, but she can't just declare war on France for the fun of it or behead anyone who so much as looks at her the wrong way. Where's the fun in that?

However, my cynicism was stifled a bit when she stepped out of the Rolls Royce looking like a brunette Grace Kelly:

Can we say money shot?

That's when I had the a-ha moment: This.Would.Be.Awesome.

She looked absolutely beautiful, and despite the pomp and circumstance, you can tell she and Wills really love each other. Plus, I would totally wear Pippa's bridesmaid dress as an actual wedding dress. Hotness!

The best news of all is that Harry is still single. How handsome did he look in his uniform this morning? I think I'd be willing to put up with the formality and stuffiness of the Windsor family to get to see that on a regular basis. 

What was your favorite part about the wedding?

I wasn't into it either until about 48 hours ago when I decided I couldn't hold out any longer :) Pippa's dress was fantastic. I have a feeling she'll be getting some pretty good guys calling her after that.

I completely agree! I was not into the wedding at all until I saw my first glimpse on the Today Show this morning. Then I was hooked! She looked so classic and elegant. One of my favorite moments was when she saw the crowd for the first time on the balcony of Buckingham Palace and said, "Oh, wow!" I liked seeing that such things still excited and impressed her.

Did anyone one see the 3 gorgeous sisters belonging to Princess Diana's brother?

Alas I haven't watched any of the footage yet, but my sister said that they looked like 3 english blond Kardashian sisters!

I have been ROYAL WEDDING OBSESSED since the engagement was announced and let me say, I was NOT disappointed. They look so happy in love and that is what matters most. She looked absolutely stunning and I wish I could recreate the look for my own wedding without people thinking I had gone bonkers!

She is living proof that fairy tales can come true...ever 2 or 3 centuries or however long it has been since a commoner married a royal in the Windsor family!

so..... I rewatched the whole thing on DVR this morning!

For those who don't know me, I have always be fearful of walking down the aisle. And for those of you who do know me, you know I tell my mom she will have to give me a xanax and push me down the aisle if she wants to see her eldest daughter married someday!

But, after watching her royal highness in all her glory, I have crazy wedding and princess fever!!!!!

God bless (DVR and) the future King and Queen of England!

I so enjoyed seeing the brothers together in the car. I watched Diana's funeral, so it was a little bittersweet to see them walk down the same aisle that they walked down when they were following her casket - but Kate and William both looked very happy, as did Harry and Pippa. I also really enjoyed the fact that when Kate made it up to the altar, Prince William looked at her and said "You look beautiful". Yay! Not to mention that my high school friend (now living in Montana, while I am in Missouri) and I were texting each other with running commentary during the event
