GUYS…IT’S THE ROYAL WEDDING DAY. Did you watch it? I woke up at 6am on the dot to catch the beginning and it was worth every single lost minute of sleep. In case you missed it, here are a few snapshots that I found on the Royal Wedding website, by the British Monarch!
The happy couple, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
Kate was stunning in her Sarah Burton by Alexander McQueen dress, Cartier veil and tiara lent to her by the Queen!
Riding in the coach to the reception!!
Pippa looked amazing as well, LOVE that her gown was designed by Sarah Burton as well!
She was the pinnacle of perfection and he was handsome as ever. The whole event was simple, understated but still elegant. The only criticism? Her bouquet. You are a princess, get something a little snazzier! As large-scale as the event was, the ceremony felt so intimate. My favorite part was when Will mouthed to her “You look absolutely beautiful.” I started sobbing. They are the new Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, but in the end, this is their perfect wedding day, just as we all had ours (or will have ours!) They are a royal, celebrity couple, but during the ceremony when they would steal glances at each other, it just solidified that they were like any excited newlyweds on their wedding day!
To go along with my what I would have worn post, I’ve decided to dedicate today’s post to one of my favorite English traditions, the fancy top hats and fascinators! Another favorite part of the ceremony was getting to see all of the amazing hats in the audience! Like this one, worn by Zara Phillips.
And of course, there were a few that were not as elegant, like Beatrice’s (the one in the tan).
What is that? It looks like a crab, or something!
So where can us non-royal members of the world find a hat worthy of our own “royal” weddings? Look no further than Proper Topper, a fabulous boutique that specializes in fascinators and fancy hats! My dear friend Mary turned me onto this site and I must say, I’m utterly hooked! Now I just need to get some invitations to royal events (or even fancy cocktail parties) so I can have an excuse to buy and wear these!
All hats can be bought at Proper Topper. I just would galavant around in one of these party hats!
