I think there's a difference between being negative and being a realist. Being negative means you don't want to look at the truth...you're in denial. Being a realist means saying the truth even though it hurts. And the truth is this was a boring affair.

You know I am not even enjoying this board today which is a shame. I was looking forward to coming here and sharing the magic of the day with so many of you that I have shared the excitement and build up to this day. Unfortunately, there seems to be an element here today that can't do anything but be negative and spoil it for others. What a shame.

I think it would be wise if you would not hype up - or participate in it - any future (British) royal wedding as you did with this one, it saves you from falling down so hard.

I think the major problem is that so many people got caught up in the hype of this wedding. Lucky for me I didn't and was very awaiting all along - I got a beautiful wedding as a reward .

Thanks for bringing your good cheer. Have a nice evening.

Am I the only one who's nuts on this board I mean honestly what do some people want. I honestly think some people should go back and watch the wedding again there were many times when they gave each other little glances and smiles they even were chuckling a bit at the beginning. And then when they left the abbey and the carriage ride to BP they looked much more relaxed and happy. The balcony appearance was IMO the best for me

Where to begin? Well I have already discussed THE DRESS in another thread so here goes the ceremony itself.

THE MUSIC: Sent chills up my spine and brought me as close to tears as I came all morning. The choristers of the Chapel Royal sounded like they were singing in Heaven. I was especially stunned at the processional hymn "I Was Glad" one of my favorite psalms. I had heard a rumor that it was going to be Jeremiah Clarke's "Trumpet Voluntary" which frankly is beginning to bore me. I was happily surprised at how spiritual all the musical selections were.

THE VOWS: Kate seeming to suppress a giggle while William said his vows...Harry leaning over to whisper to his brother while KM was coming up the aisle..William whispering "beautiful" to her when she reached him at the altar..how attentive and solemn the bride and groom were, and how poised...why did William have a hard time getting the ring on her finger..KM spoke her vows in almost a whisper...her speaking voice is exquisite!

THE ARCHBISHOP'S HOMILY: I thought I'd want to grab a snack when this came on, but the opening statement had me glued..."...be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire." How beautiful, how perfectly beautiful.

THE DECORATIONS: I thought I would love the trees, but I didn't for some reason...they looked out of place and in the way.

PIPPA & THE BRIDESMAIDS: I'll be honest, I am not a Pippa fan. But she was so pretty in her elegant cream gown, and so attentive to the little bridesmaids. And I thought it sweet that she wore her hair similar to her sister's.

THE REST OF THE MIDDLETON'S: Carole was a stunning mother of the bride..loved her outfit! James reading that passage from Scripture was amazing..I closed my eyes for a minute and thought it sounded like a professional actor...beautful! Mr Middleton seems like a nice guy.

THE CAKE: Just saw it...FREAKING MASTERPIECE. The most beautiful Royal wedding cake I have ever seen!

MISCELLANEOUS..love, love, love the English custom of ringing all the church bells before and after the ceremony...it sounded like a WEDDING should sound! The military bands were perfect...I think too much emphasis is placed on the balcony kiss...all the analyzing of it annoys me. What if the couple does not WANT to kiss in front of millions?? William in particular does not seem comfortable with pda's...Kate surprised me by wearing a tiara..I am so happy she did! I am happy it didn't rain.

Overall...this was my idea of a Perfect Royal Wedding. It is up there now with CP Victoria's as my favorite wedding..it more than surpassed my expectations!

Um I will surely tune in to more weddings and give my opinion on it...whether bad or good. I don't understand you people. I say my opinion and you all get upset. Well this how I feel. It was boring. Even though it was a royal wedding, it was boring...I'm sorry if it's putting you in a tiff that's how I feel. I've never been one to mince on words...I say what I feel about something. Downfall or not.

I got caught up in the hype as much as everyone, and I was not for ONE moment disappointed. It was traditional, and beautiful. The bride, the service, the music, the pomp and pageantry.....it was everything the British do best.

As I said before, it's not their fault that their wedding didn't live up to your expectations.

Did I say you shouldn't tune in to weddings anymore and refrain from giving your opinion? No, I just said it may be wise to save yourself from getting caught in such a hype next time.
And you state that this wedding was boring as if it is a fact - which it is not. Stating opinion like fact is not nice on a forum.

That is all I'll say, adios and hopefully for you you'll have a better wedding to see next time

THANK YOU! I agree with everything you said. I was in tears many times throughout the procession to the church and throughout the ceremony. I kept thinking about how Diana would have loved to see this day.

It was a magical, special day.

I wish the tv would have shown more of William and Catherine during the ceremony.
