Royal Wedding - The Belles Dish

Our invitation may have gotten lost in the mail, but we caught a good chunk of the royal wedding this morning while prepping for work - Oh, the glamour!  The nonstop speculative coverage over the past few months was a bit much but how fun to see an event like this live and of course dish afterwards. Some of the highlights for us:

The Dress:  The perfect choice for a princess, a timeless look with modern interpretation in the streamlined bodice.  The reception dress is nothing to sniff at either, and we suspect brides will be pulling inspiration from both ensembles for years to come.

The Bridal "Look" and The Jewels:  When a bride is this gorgeous, natural makeup and hair is the way to go, and will keep wedding pictures from looking dated for decades. Her happiness was so apparent too, she's every bit the blushing bride.  When when you're a brand new member of the royal family, there's bound to be some serious sparkle. The combination of the lace trimmed veil, delicate diamond tiara, and drop earrings was so pretty.

The Trees:  The live trees lining the aisle were genius decor solution for the grand scale and high ceilings of the ceremony space.  They provided interest while managing to not compete with the architecture. The fact that the trees will be planted at the family home is touching and eco-friendly.


What did you love about the Royal Wedding?  Brides, did you find any inspiration from today's coverage?  Is anyone else ridiculously jealous of the stacked Middleton gene pool?

  1. Loved Kate and Pippa! So elegant. I'm glad it didn't rain and ruin some great hair (sorry Will!). A lovely day of royalty to make an otherwise slow Friday memorable.
