1. I recorded the thing so I would be able to watch it sometime. I ended up watching a lot of it live because of nighttime feeding.
2. I liked Kate's dress. I'm glad she didn't do something supermodern like what some fashion experts were predicting (a trumpet or mermaid style dress is what I heard often). I think what she chose was more timeless.
3. I love fanfare. I love tradition. I love hullabaloo. I love occasions to wear hats practically. However, I do not love some of the hat choices made. I'm looking at you, Princess Beatrice!
4. A lot of people are making a big deal over the fact that Pippa, Kate's sister and maid of honor, wore white. They compare it to the American tradition of no one ever wearing white to another person's wedding. I've heard commentators suggest that she was trying to steal the show from her sister and that she'd committed a major faux pas. Here's the thing: don't we think that someone approved this dress beforehand? Don't we think that - like most sisters - Kate would know what Pippa was wearing before Kate stepped out of the car at the Abbey? Does anyone actually think Pippa picked out her own dress without running it past anyone first?
p.s. Gorgeous dress, Pippa!
5. I think THE KISS could have lasted a second longer and not crossed t
he line into inappropriate. I wanted a smooch! Not a tight-lipped mouthpress!
6. Do you think the Prime Minister's wife purposefully didn't wear a hat even though the invitations specifically said to wear one? Do you think she did it because she just hates wearing hats that much? I don't care whose wife you are, if you consciously decide not to abide by the dress code of one of the biggest weddings of your time, that's a statement.
