Rocking out at our Royal Play date

It was so exciting to munch on tea biscuits, scones and cucumber sandwiches as we indulged in all things royal.  We couldn’t get enough of Kate’s spectacular wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton from Alexander McQueen.   We marvelled in the wee hours of the morning before the press pointed it out, just how reminiscent Kate’s dress was of Grace Kelly’s wedding dress and how it was a perfect pick – timeless, classic, stylish and modern.   She was a vision in lace and satin.  But I couldn’t get over just how composed she seemed.  I remember how nervous and excited I was on my wedding day, and I didn’t have millions of people watching my every step and listening to my every word.  Wow, what grace under pressure. 

I thought the pomp and ceremony of the day was tastefully ostentatious.  The vows were beautifully said and the kiss…the kiss was touching and real.  I could eat this romantic stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner (can you tell).   All in all, I’m glad I catapulted myself onto the Royal Wedding band wagon.   It was a beautiful way to spend a morning with my friends: eating, drinking, discussing fashion and being merry.  What more could a girl want!


  1. OMG, LOVE it. And LOVE your blog! Thanks for visiting Yummy Mummy, I’m now following you 🙂 Come check out my newest Spring ice cream recipe @ http://www.yummymummykitchen.com

  2. Hi there! Returning the favor from the blog hop. I think I’m one of the few that didn’t wake up to watch the wedding (4 AM my time – I value my sleep too much!) But I did see all the pics the next morning. What an event, I’m happy for them 🙂

    • The wedding was pretty early in the morning! If I had to do it over again, I would have told everyone to come to the royal play date wearing pajamas!

  3. I suppose I should have watched a little…so I know what everyone is talking about. 🙂 For some reason I just didn’t. My poor children!

  4. What a great play date! I love that idea wish i’d have thought of it. New follower thank you for stopping by Living at the Whitehead’s Zoo.

  5. She defined “Grace Under Pressure”. True beauty.

  6. Her dress was gorgeous! I didn’t watch the wedding but I saw pictures online. When Prince Charles wed Diana Spencer, I watched with my dad and he took a picture of me in front of the TV–with a Polaroid! I hope my parents still have that pic.

    • How precious! I hope you do find that picture. I’ve been trying to remember to take pics of my kids in front of the tv during historical moments. I only have a couple of them with my daughter but it is a really cool idea. Your parents were ahead of their time!

  7. Hi,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog via the blog hop.

    Sounds like you had a lovely day. The dress that Kate wore by Alexander McQueen was beautiful with clean lines. Wish the couple the best of happiness.
