Somehow Zara did not look like the daughter of the Princess Royal but like a "mere" Miss Phillips. Which is what I personally like in her and her approach to the wedding. Her dress suited her and her husband, IMHO, it was a dress for a normal girl who wanted to be princess for a day while Catherine back in april wore a dress for a future princess and queen. Both beautiful brides! I really enjoyed the sparkle and the fun Zara and Mike seemed to ooze and I liked the fact that the whole congregation seemed to keep it simple - really a family affair, suitable for Scotland.

OTOH a dress like the one Mary of Denmark wore with the slight reminiscences of portraits of Scottish ladies of the renaissance period would have be ice, too. But then, Zara is a thoroughly modern lady who will look back one day on her wedding, viewing the pics together with Mike and laugh a bit because she chose such a romantic dress.

Which she is?

Also, Dolly Maude is being referred to as maid of honour, she's married, so she should be matron of honour?

Are there any pics of the Kents and Gloucesters?
So far,haven't been released any.I think some senior members could have attended.It's interesting to know if any representatives of Scottish nobilty attended,as far as the wedding was in Edinburgh.

Personally, I LOVE this hat. Camilla is getting quite close to being what's referred to as 'fierce'. Love it.

The dress is unflattering because Zara's arms are too thick for a sleeveless dress. She needs to hold her arms away from her body to avoid this look:

Why does everyone have a bridal bouquet with just white flowers in it? Does anyone know what flowers Zara had in her bouquet? She could've had some nice Scottish flowers there.

I love the official photo! It's so relaxed and they are very happy. I prefer that than the normal posed images we get.

Is Zara's gown off-the-rack, and not a specially-made-to-order gown, based on what was been reported in Hello Magazine?

From Hello Magazine: 'The young royal selected the gown from bridal shop*The White Room, very near to where she lives with her rugby beau in Gloustershire.'

Everyone looked lovely. The bride, guests. I really like the simplicity of the gown but feel so so about the vale. Her cousins Bea and Eugenie look lovely as well.

Zara herself was breathtaking and stunning.Not a fan of the dresss,too puffy for her.I did like that her arms were not covered it is summer.

Catherine,Lady Sarah and Eugenie looked the best.I liked the color on Bea but not the style.

The hats are getting to be too much.

We didn't get any of those cute photos we usually get but it's prob cause we saw them for such a short time and they were at church. Seems like they get really serious when at events like this. She did do plenty of smiling though
