Due to my tummy rebelling on me when I woke up this morning, I ended up taking two Gravol and going back to bed. Which in turn made me miss all the fun in here today. I was really looking forward to enjoying this amazing day w/all of you too.
I've got an awful lot of catching up to do, but I'm looking forward to it.
Victoria looked glorious today!! She was simply stunning. Loved the Dress and it looked amazing on her. As for all of those doubters when it came to the Cameo Tiara...Victoria not only wore it well, but did it justice as well. I also have a brand new favourite All Time Royal Bride's Bouquet. Sophie, Countess of Wessex's was in top spot, but not anymore. Victoria's was gorgeous and not too big or outlandish either. It really was beautiful.
Daniel was quite the dapper Groom and both he and Victoria were just literally overflowing w/joy and love for each other. You can feel it through any of the video coverage I've seen. My favourite picture so far is over at Hello Magazine's section for the Wedding. At one point during the Ceremony, Victoria reaches up and w/the back of her fingers brushes Daniel's cheek. It's just such a lovely and intimate gesture and combined w/the look that's being exchanged between the two of them and...Sigh!!
I don't really have a favourite gown, as most of the Royal Ladies today all looked good for the most part, but mostly because I'm not a fan of the latest fashion trend of the multi ruffled skirt for Formal Gowns. I did adore the colour of Madeleine's dress, as well as Mette-Marit's. I also liked Infanta Cristina's dress.
Princess Mabel OTOH....Yi yi yi!!! What was she thinking!?! W/out a doubt, the Worst Dressed Guest at the Wedding.
A pity that Infanta Elena decided to go for the full on Bullfighter look on her bolero jacket. If the jacket had only the diamond design detail on it, then that and the dress would have been a real winner for HRH. Instead, it was just way too much and ended up being a Hot Mess.
Finally saw a picture of Princess Clare and that sheer material that made up the sleeve just does not go w/the dress. For that kind of a design, you need to have the sleeve match the rest of the dress, because then whomever is looking at you will have their eyes drawn to that mis matched sleeve and it won't matter what the rest of the dress looks like after that. Too bad too, as it had potential to be a real show stopper.
It *finally* clicked for me who Prince Carl Philip has been reminding me of. It's been driving me nuts the last couple of months, but it finally came to me today. Now I could be mistaken here, but...He really has quite the resemblance to Orlando Bloom. At least I think so.
So sad Princess Lilian wasn't there, but it's even sadder the reason why she couldn't attend. I lost my own Great Aunt, whom I was close to, to Alzheimer's. It is a cruel, cruel disease and I can easily imagine how heartbreaking it was to the Family to learn about the Princess' diagnosis.
All in all, a glorious day for a lovely young couple.
Wishing them all the best for a wonderful life filled w/love, happiness and the blessings of family.
Congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden!!
