The long awaited moment in wedding land.....finally here. The wedding of Kate and William. The months and months of chatter and supposition. Here. For us all to see. I must have addmited, I myself was one of them. The questions, the ponders, what will she be wearing, who designed her dress, will she wear a veil, full length, beaded, embroidered, both ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Stop now.
I have returned after a long cup of tea. I promise I will just try to keep myself composed. As you gathered, I have been waiting for the day, well in our case the night. Okay I feel it happening again, who is doing the catering? Wow, how nerve racking. What if you make one poor choice? Yea I knew it was going to happen again.
These are just a couple of questions that have been going through the minds of many. Now it has unfolded in front of us, and for me living in a personal land of non stop weddings, it was beautiful. I will just say I am happy that it was full of traditions, above and beyond the typical ones. The hint of old and new combining together. Well worth staying up and going through four pots of tea.
So here are my , oh I am so happy favorites list.
The dress.......so traditional.....so breathtaking and clearly couture. I had fingers crossed, pleas no bare shoulders, no bare shoulders. Ahhhh no bare shoulders. I am just happy about such simple things.
A veil, I love the mystic of a veil. The soft drape of the silk. The hand embroidered flowers. Simply elegant.
The bouquet, Simple, understated, full of tradition and symbolism. The piece of Myrtle, intertwined in the flowers, a tradition dating back to the 1840's.
The Jewelry, elegant, classy, Robinson Pelham.That is all I will say right now.
In my thoughts, I expected a little less tradition from this beautiful young lady, yet she so surpassed any of my ideals for tradition. I am an old fashioned romantic in the same breath that I would turn around and wear an ice cream cone bra.. That being said I am happy for what will become new trends in weddings. Great things always follow media setting weddings. No cleavage out to here, leg up to there and shoulders bare., no just pure class.
Well I have covered my favorite and most awaited wedding part. The clothes. I will reference more things in upcoming articles, This is Sandra Sable signing off for now
