the royal wedding

Were you up at 5 am to see the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William?  It was beautiful.  But the suspense was all about Kate's dress - and, like the whole universe was hoping ...


Sarah Burton, creative director for Alexander McQueen, did both Kate's dress and Pippa's dress (which I loved... I think a lot of us were expecting a silhouette closer to Pippa's for Kate's gown).  Now for the pictures!

Kate had an 8 foot train (Diana's was 25) - rumor has it Kate opted for a short train since she didn't want to outdo Diana and because she isn't of royal blood. 
Kate made a beautiful bride.  The edging on the veil was divine!
Good shot of the lace edging on the bodice.  Kate also stuck to the rule of wearing sleeves in Westminster Abbey - but proved she was a modern girl by 1. wearing Alexander and 2. having the sleeves sheer!
I was rather in love with her sister's dress - the shape, cowl and unique edge treatment were understated and gorgeous.
Hand-covered buttons down the back of Pippa's dress.
And Queen Elizabeth's Bentley Arnage (custom designed) - new dream car.  The color, the shape in the back, the length, the car was divine.  The rest of the royal family rode in Rolls Royce Phantom VI cars.
If you didn't watch the wedding, I highly urge you to.  The ceremony was gorgeous, the choir was amazing, and the speakers were wonderful.  Kate and William are adorable together!
