It's a nice day for a white wedding...

(And the award for the least original title goes!)

So today, Kate Middleton (or Catherine, as she will go by now apparently) and Prince William married at Westminster Abbey, in front of a monumental crowd, and even more watching at home, (me included.)

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of people watching, the Royal Family get a lot of bad press, so it was nice to see such a large percentage of the population interested.

The bride looked simply stunning in a gorgeous dress, designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, with a tiara borrowed from the Queen, (made by Cartier in 1936, purchased by the Queen's father, the Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess (later Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother.) I think the dress is beautifully timeless very Grace Kelly-esque, and sophisticated, a brilliant choice for the future consort Queen!

The long-awaited balcony kiss!

I watched the wedding coverage all day - like many of us I think. Well, from about 10:30 when I woke up! I didn't realise it was on so early, I missed Harry and William going in, which I was a bit peeved at. I thought it was lovely, the Abbey is beautiful, the Queen looked very on-trend in yellow, Prince Harry looked gorgeous as usual, albeit a bit hungover by the looks of things, Prince William looked handsome, the bridesmaids and pageboys looked adorable, and there were some ridiculous hats/fascinators on show (Princess Beatrice, Victoria Beckham, I'm looking at you!) All in all, a marvelous wedding.

Did you watch? And what did you think of her dress?

(I'll do a proper post in a few hours, but I couldn't go without doing a post on the wedding!)
