royal wedding

The Royal Wedding is kind of a big deal in England---as you'd expect and as you'd hope for, really.

In the spirit of it, today, I thought I'd share a Disney inspired bridal gown---just for fun, more than anything. I love a new dress as much as the next girl---okay, okay, maybe a tiny bit more---but I can never, ever see myself in such a big, flouncy number. Just as I can never, ever see myself having a big wedding---but not because I don't believe in it. (I cannot think of a lovelier or more worthwhile commitment---apart from parenthood. But I like to think the latter shouldn't exist without the other---I am an old-fashioned girl at heart).

Snow White inspired, and it can be found here.

I can't lie: I am a teeny, teeny little bit excited about Kate's dress tomorrow---and, of course, the cake...

But do you know what I love more about this whole day? The patriotism and the community it has inspired back in people---it's truly a beautiful thing. I am hoping to get myself down to the seaside today to partake in a little bit of pier-partying (weather dependant, of course---and that lovely weather is pretty much evading us at the moment). I like the idea of all the traditional get-togethers; the young and the old celebrating side by side. I think having more of it around would be a very lovely thing indeed.

Whatever you are doing together---in celebration or not---I hope you have a beautiful day.


  1. That's a pretty dress!! I could never wear it though, I'd feel so..well not at all like me.
    Everyone here is excited about the royal wedding too! I love how something like this can band countries together :)
    I like the writing tips below, they're really helpful!! And I just looked up Kate Spade dresses, never heard of them before. Wow, they are so cool! Very 50s. But very not in my price range :(

  2. oh wow, i'm sure it's a lovely thing to be in england right now. kate looked stunning--that dress--so grace kelly, absolutely divine.

    ps: your comment on my blog yesterday was one of the nicest things anyone has ever said. it humbled me, brought me back to myself. i'm going to print it off and pull it out when i need a reminder. i'm indebted to you for that...a million times over, thank you.
