OK... I admit it. I stayed up until 2:00 AM watching William and Catherine's wedding. I wasn't sure I was going to, but Art turned the TV on and said, "Go on... I know you want to." And then he went to sleep.
The first thing that struck me was the modern technology we have now. The cameras were everywhere and caught every detail. You were far better off watching it on TV than being there to see what was going on.
I really loved seeing the love between the siblings. The commentators mentioned what good friends William and Harry were and how they tease each other mercilessly. Harry teases William about his balding and William teases Harry about having "ginger" hair.
Catherine's sister, Pippa looked beautiful as well and it's heart warming to know they are also very close.
I was interested in seeing the Step Mother-in-Law and Mother-of-the-Bride dresses. Both mothers really looked fabuous!
I loved seeing all the fancy big hats. Ummm... But why was the Prime Minister's wife not wearing a hat? Her head looked naked.
It was nice to see the Royal family looking so cordial and hearing how Charles and Camilla were happy and how William and Harry now really loved her. Forgiveness is a lovely thing.
And then Kate appeared and we could all see her mystery dress. I was a little disappointed. I thought she'd choose something without the lace, something not quite so old fashioned looking.
Then it grew on me. They say it is reminiscent of Grace Kelly's dress. Actually, any wedding gown would have looked great on Princess Catherine. She was stunning!
It just amazed me how we could see the wedding from every single angle, crystal clear and super close up. How scary is that for the couple to know every single gesture or squirm would be caught and Twittered?
I loved it when William who was the last one to see his bride whispered, "You look beautiful," when he finally did.
It was lovely to know Kate had kept her hair down than putting it up unnaturally because she wanted her future husband to see her as she really was on this important day.
We also got that close up view of William having difficulty getting the ring on her finger. Like I said before... the technology is incredible!
They rode to Buckingham Palace after the wedding, but it was after 2:00 and I just couldn't stay up for The Kiss.
I went to bed.
Art opened one eye and said, "Did you enjoy it?"
