Royal Wedding Redux: Flowers and Trees

Sorry this didn’t post earlier!! I messed up the queue of my blog posts.

Up close, I love Kate’s bouquet, especially the significance of all the different flowers that are in it. However, the back of the bouquet looked really odd on TV and so did the handle. I would have liked a bigger, fuller bouquet with more impact.

As for the trees in Westminster Abbey, I love it!!!!

I love that the trees brought down the height of the ceilings and added something to the space without competing. I also really like that the trees are being planted all over the UK.

Fingers crossed for my interview tomorrow!!

Royal Wedding Redux: The Dresses

Good Monday morning everyone!

I’ve decided to dedicate this week to the royal wedding and all my thoughts and opinions. First of course, is Catherine’s dresses. I was confident that Catherine would wear more than one dress, especially since her ceremony dress was likely to be huge and not easy to manage for eating and dancing. 

First the ceremony dress:

While it is gorgeous and she is STUNNING beyond belief, I was disappointed. I’ve come to realize that I think I expected something new and different. I would have liked to see Catherine in a gown with a wide boatneck instead of the plunge and with more veil, less train, and a fuller skirt. Something along these lines but with sleeves and a fuller skirt:

And the second dress is fantastic:

Love the full skirt, love the cardigan, LOVE the beaded belt! In no way, shape, or form do I think this would have worked for the ceremony, but WOW it’s perfect for a party!

What did you think? Leave comments in my ask box :)

With a wink and a smile,

Ellie
