The Royal Wedding

Well, I wasn't going to post on this, because everyone and their mother already has, but here's a quick shot.  

Seems like my Wednesday post was a little prescient, since there was a clear parallel between the looks chosen by Princess Grace and the new Duchess of Cambridge (which really is a much more logical connection to draw than the super-obvious-but-not-remotely-accurate one to Diana's wedding that was so heavily pushed by the media coverage).

There was lots of commentary over how "unique" and "controversial" it was to have Pippa and the flower girls/bridesmaids/whatever they're called in England wearing white, but I could only think of the similarities to the bridal party of the Monaco wedding.

And, of course, what everyone is really talking about - sleeves!  Sleeves, sleeves, lovely sleeves.  It's hysterical to me that 90% of the wedding commentary that I come across online is all about how brides want dresses with sleeves, and (speaking from experience) the choices are limited.  Unless you want to spend upwards of $8,000 on a dress.  Hopefully the sleek, simple, and relatively modest (though I might argue that Pippa's dress dips a little too low in front) styles created by Sarah Burton have a big influence on the brial market. It'll be interesting to see.

  1. SLEEVES!!! Yay for sleeves and decorum. Nothing wrong with some proper church friendly wedding attire.
