Perhaps I am very far off but Zara's wedding dress suddenly reminds me of that of Lady Rose Gilman. The style of the bodice and the straps at least does that to me. As well as the way the veil is positioned.

I love kilts so much I would've thrown one on the groom as well, Scottish or not. Maybe (probably) there's some etiquette issue why kilts were not worn that I'm not aware of.

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 can only assume the reason for the lack of kilts is because the groom and his attendants chose not to wear kilts. I think had the wedding party been in kilts the royal family members who wear kilts would have followed suit. Either that or Zara and Mike preferred that morning dress be worn.

Certainly the younger members of the royal family have avoided kilts so far and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Lady Rose's dress was much more flowy and less "tight" than Zara's. They do have the little shoulder pieces in common.

Calla lilies, from what I've looked at.

Umm is that proved or your own opinion?
Well he has a scottish title, and one day will be King of Scotland all being well, he should get used to feeling a breeze IMO.

But that being said, she herself looks stunning and so happy for them both! Congrats!

I agree - the dress has a fitted bodice that directed attention to her hips and stomach. She is a fit athlete and in great shape but the dress's bodice did not flatter her figure.

I don't have a problem with white flowers at all, I'd much rather see white flowers than those (to me) dreaded red roses. Red roses with a white wedding dress - why, just why? That doesn't match at all in my eyes.

Anyone who chooses to go to the Braemar Games, quite possibly the most Scottish event on the planet where just about every male is in a kilt, wearing a suit obviously has no intention of wearing a kilt anywhere. I think William will be middle aged before we see him in a kilt, if ever.

I am shocked by how traditional the bride's dress was! She looked wonderful- right up there with Kate.
The hats were horrible- the only one I liked was the Queen's and even that had too many feathers!

Spletnik -Ms.Zara Phillips: The wedding ceremony

Congratulations to the couple!
Mrs.Phillips-Tindal looked great. I liked a simplicity of the dress.
Sophie's, Countess of Wessex, ensemble was chic. She did a great job of pulling off a new generation of the satellite hat.

You and I think alike! You wrote my post about hats and outfits for me-
although IMO, nothing wrong with wearing white/cream at a wedding. Thanks!

Looks like the Queen is leaving the party

Now they can really let their hair down. The Queen is leaving the wedding reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in a chopper to Balmoral.

The bride is beaming but the dress is a bit blah for some reason. I love the tiara but wish she had some hair behind it if you know what I mean. The tiara needs a higher updo so it wouldn't look like the wearer has a flat head. Still beautiful though. QUOTE]

Agreed - the hats are beginning to look similar - like platters with flowers....a bit repetitious as are the nude colored shoes. It is obvious what is currently in vogue..but everyone looked nice. I would not be happy to be seated in church behind the lady with the huge orange hat. The Queen’s hat was cute and the color she wore was flattering. As usual, the Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning….probably it is that charisma she was blessed with, she has the ability to radiate happiness when she smiles….this carries over to the cameras.

Gotta love Zara, gets out of the car and shuts the door herself. She is so not pretentious.

Yes, I kept having that problem too, but when I put in "lady sarah chatto" and "today" on the search thingy, the pix came up. I was going thru page after page looking for wedding pictures until I thought to use the search feature!
