Thoughts on the Royal Wedding

First of all, I want to wish my friend Jen and her hubby a happy 1 year anniversary! It seems like last year everyone is getting married and it's already anniversary time!  Hope you lovebirds have many many more happy anniversaries! :-)
Now onto the Royal Wedding:

I was going to post about the Royal Wedding right after I watched it but I was at a course all weekend so I didn't have time. I find it very interesting talking to people about it. I am a positive person so I can always find the positive in bad things and be positive about good things. Some people always can find the negative. When people talk about the royal wedding, some people say things about the monarchy and how they have no power and shouldn't have it. I don't know anything about that kind of stuff, because I don't live in England, first of all. Second of all, I don't bother having an opinion on things where my opinion doesn't matter. Unless the queen wants to call me and ask if I think she should be queen I'm really not going to bother. Maybe that's stupid, but I have better things to do. By the way, I do realise the wedding cost a lot of taxpayers money or so I've heard, but it will also boost the economy with the amount of souvenirs and things that will be sold from it and also the large number of tourists that visited for the day and will visit because of the wedding.

There were a lot of things I loved about this wedding but I'll tell you what I loved the most first. For a long time, every time we turn the TV on there is something negative on the news. Disasters, tragedies and things like that. I loved watching the Royal Wedding because it was something fun and exciting on the news. Also, in 1997 we turned on the news to see that a beloved princess and all around pretty amazing human being had tragically died in a car accident. This past weekend we turned on the TV to see her sons, all grown up, happy, close with each other, with great rewarding careers, and one of them marrying the love of his life. Wouldn't it be great if every time we had a tragedy, we could fast forward to the future and see all the great things it would bring? Seeing those boys smiling and happy after everything they've been through just puts a smile on my face.

 Anyways, other thoughts on the wedding: Loved her dress. I realise some people think it was stuffy, but they have to remember that it was in a traditional church which means sleeve and covered up. She still managed to look sexy somehow, I think it must have been the lace. I also adored her reception dress:

I also saw a lot of people comment on her flowers. I must admit I was surprised by how small her bouquet was.  However, the flowers in it were all meaningful to her and the royal family. There was even flowers called "sweet William" in it, which I thought was really sweet. 


I always liked Kate Middleton and I was so impressed with how she handled the wedding. She was so amazingly calm and poised, but you could also tell how happy she was to finally be marrying William. I think that's what also made the wedding so exciting is because it was a real love story. You're talking about a couple that have been together for a long time, have supported each other, have gone through tough times and made it through and are now having their happy ending, which is really a happy beginning.
So all in all I loved watching the Royal Wedding and I really loved everything about it. For someone like me, who grew up watching Cinderella over and over again it's something that just made me happy to watch. I love a good fairytale.



  1. The thing I love most about the wedding is how in love they are. He looks at her, and he can't get enough. It's something that I adore about that couple. Their double kiss on the balcony said it all to me. They are adorable, and they deserve the happiest, loving life together, whether they are King and Queen or just Duke and Duchess!

  2. I agree with you Taren! Where life can disappoint, really there is a rainbow somewhere.

    Love Aunty

  3. Thanks for the happy wishes!

    I loved every single part about the wedding. They are so in love and I think their wedding restored the belief in the monarchy for alot of Brits.
