I loved every single second of the wedding (ok - some of the hymm bits were boring but only because I wanted to watch THEM all the time). I had tears in my eyes as I revelled in a truly British day.
My fave bits? Well, the crowd cheering outside the church as they made their vows, all of Kate walking down the aisle, when William grabbed Kate's hand under the arches at Horse Guards Parade Square), little Grace holding her ears on the balcony and the kisses (TWO JUICY SMACKERS!).
Id heard a leak at 8am that the dress was a McQueen design (well, Sarah Burton at McQueen) so I knew there would be a great addition to the day. The only thing I was disappointed with was her dress had a gathered waist. I personally would have not designed that aspect (opting for no gather nor empire line) but I was super impressed by the boxed pleating on the train. She did look absolutely beautiful. I also loved that her bouquet had sweet william as well as traditional myrtle.
I felt a little uneasy on Eugenie's choice of Vivienne Westwoods apparel. I know Westwood is a wildcard (she is on my current Module of "ten of my favourite Fashion designers" on my diploma course). But come on Eugenie - it was a tad garish, next to your Aunty Ann whose frightful ensemble made me wish the wedding was in black and white.
I loved Victoria Beckhams outfit (well, more the hat) only wishing the woman would bloody smile. I also ADORED Tara Palmer Tompkinsons outfit too, her hat was magnificent. And as for the Queen? Bless her, all that yellow made her look like a little cute chick.
After the ceremony, my mum, Ellie and I had a tea party in my mums garden. We made bunting,as well as dainty finger sammiches (some with crusts - I like crusts!), cakes and cream scones.
I can't forget the Pimms nor the pink lemonade neither.
I noticed, that on my plate, a nut had landed on Kates hand. Therefore I shall call her engagement ring the "cashew nut" ring from now on. Wills will be called Egg Sammich head too. I hope the Queen doesn't read my blog, she will have me off to the tower for a proper beheading otherwise.

It was a wonderful day and one that I hope Belles will NOT forget for years to come.
What did YOU do?
