Royal Wedding Perfection

A  very sleep deprived blog post - but oh it was so worth it!  To be perfectly honest, I been obsessed with everything Royal Wedding since the day they got engaged and have loved following all the coverage.

My friends Meghan, Brynn, Megan and myself gathered at 1 a.m. to watch all of the festivities live and had a blast.  We drank tea, had biscuits, tea sandwiches and popped the champagne when Kate arrived at Westminster Abbey and toasted to the bride.  It was so fun watching the event curled up on the couch with friends and squealing with excitement all morning long.

I thought Kate was absolute perfection and looked stunning in that amazing dress.  Love her!  Did other people stay up and watch?  What did you think of the dress?  I loved it - classic and perfect!

I did not stay up....or wake up....but I did catch a little bit this morning and will recap on my DVR tonight! LOVED her dress...my only beef is I wish she has worn her hair up to showcase the high neckline. Oh, and I was surprised her veil wasn't longer.

That sounds like so much fun to get your girls together and watch! I didn't stay up to watch but have been obsessed with watching clips online today! Kate looked SO gorgeous!

I thought she looked very princess-y. :) I haven't gotten to watch it yet. All I've seen is the waving from the balcony after the "i do's."

I am so tired from my 4am wake up call! But it was so worth it! I will remember her getting out of that car for the rest of my life. She was spectacular!

I woke up and watched it too. :) It was so fun to watch, and she did look beautiful. They are such a cute couple and seem like two really nice, sweet people. So happy for them!

I stayed up until 6 am this morning :-) I thought everything was absolutely perfect. LOVED the Grace Kelly-ish gown. It looked stunning on her. She completely exudes classic elegance and femininity.

Her dress was everything I would want. If only I had the waistline for it. Oh and a fiance.

Great wedding, gorgeous bride (and dress of course!)...and it just was as I imagined it would be. Perfect! :)
Didn't stay up of course, I watched it in the morning, live. European style! ;)

Happy weekend Carol.

I cannot believe you stayed up!!! I caught glimpses of it, and she's just so classy. I didn't personally love her dress, but what does my opinion matter ;)

I watched some of the pre-wedding festivities and then DVR'd the rest to watch on Friday morning. I loved watching it ... and I thought her dress looked amazing on her. She is so graceful and stunning!

I watched it with my girls too! I think my favorite moment of the day was when Kate stepped out on the balcony and said "wow" as she saw the crowd. I adored her and everything about the day. Pure gorgeous! xoxo {av}

That is so cute that you and some friends got together to celebrate. I ended up watching a few hours (I just happened to be up in the middle of the night and couldn't fall back asleep.) I love the way the look at each other!! So cute.
