The current wedding was sweet, traditional, lovely, but not that obviously romantic the way Victoria's was. But you still felt the love and intimacy.
Victoria's had a bit of Bollywood thrown in with all that melodrama.Or was that exuberance....?

I'm watching CBS's hour-long recap right now, and I'm struck by how very happy Philip looked at the end of the wedding and on the balcony. Nice to see from the old Duke!

I have to say -- I really thought it was sweet that William didn't turn around to see Catherine as she walked up the aisle. That way he was the very last person to see her in that dress when she stood alongside him at the altar. Very romantic.

I completely and 100% agree. Without tradition, history, timeless religious ritual and yes even a bit of boredom, all you have is just another celebrity wedding.

As another poster pointed out, I prefer the British way of doing it.

Prince William seems to be a person that values his privacy, and he doesn't like public displays of affection, which, personally, I admire him for. I get pretty turned off by people who grab each others rear ends and have 10 minute kisses in public. He was acting like a person with dignity and decorum, which seems to be missing these days.

Watching some of the replays, it appeared that as the royals were leaving Westminster Abbey, the Queen allowed Prince Philip to get into the carriage before her. Normally, it's the other way around since she outranks him, but I remember her doing the same with Diana's father, Earl Spencer, because of his health issues. Did anyone else catch that, or was I imagining it?

Per a lip reader on 20/20 William said to his bride in the carriage - '' You have to wave back even if it's too much for you''

But another article said he said '' you don't have to wave back if it's to much for you''

So....take it whichever way you like

And 20/20 said William cut the cake with his sword ....lol, hope that's true

And the RAF helicopter above them was a surprised even for them......oh and BW is talking to King Consatine of Greece who attend both receptions, wonder what he'll share :)

I saw that as well, I also liked how he helped his wife out of the carriage at the palace.

The emotion WAS there...the stolen glances and smiles, trembling voices and hands, the Archbishop reading the beautiful prayer the couple composed themselves.

It was tasteful and low-key and classy...the way it SHOULD have been.

There are some things that are so private they should not be shared..especially not on TV in front of a global audience.

Philip usually gets in first so that she can get out first.

I could not have said it better. I thought they conducted themselves with decorum and propriety.

The King of Greece said up close Catherine looked relaxed and radiated love to William ....he said they did exchange many loving glances through out

His marriage advice- if the groom is wrong he should admit it immediatly and if he is right he should never tell Cute advice!

One of the few things I did NOT enjoy about this wedding were the trees in the Abbey. I thought it would look more impressive than it did...but they just seemed out of place to me.

I know I am in the minority, but I wish they had not been there.

The wedding service was short and simple - because that is what a normal Anglican service is like. The bride and groom were restrained - but that is what is expected in Britain. I watched it all live, and felt that there was a lot of communication between them in a very subtle way. With the cameras on them from all angles, they had to be very careful in their expressions. In no way did it come across to me that there were any problems between them!!

I also was sorry that more attention was not given to the foreign royals. But other posters are right - the British really do not know who they are, and the media know even less. Actually, the British media do not cover our own RF in much detail, and certainly never cover anything to do with other RFs (well, Grace Kelly's wedding was an exception, and that was because she was GK!). Prince Charles' and Camilla's trip to Portugal, Spain and Morocco recently was almost entirely ignored by the home media - such a pity!

I believe Harry said to William 'Just wait till you see her.' William said 'You're beautiful' to Catherine, and then made Mr Middleton and her laugh by saying 'This was meant to be a small family wedding.'

I thoroughly enjoyed my day - and must now get to bed before I fall asleep at the computer!

The bride wore 3 inch heels- Harry made jokes and William said 'I love you'. :)
