Kept in the Dark


So I was amongst the millions who watched The Royal Wedding. Many watched this wedding for various reasons, but I'm sure most of you can guess why I watched the wedding. Yes, Prince William is charming. Yes, I was captivated by the traditional style of it. Yes, it was nice to see the famous faces, the rolls royce, the perfect procession, and the different dressing styles of the participants and the hats worn by the females. I will leave the hat discussion for another blog post. But my eyes could not leave Kate's wedding dress. I was honestly surprised. Many people over the months have tried to match wedding dress styles to her personality. Most have come up with complicated styles for her. I will say that the simplicity of Kate's wedding dress choice, compared to the supposedly Kate-wedding-dress styles by various designers, was a breathe of a fresh air. Pure white satin and ivory for the skirt part of the dress, English and French lace sleeves that also covered the corset-style bodice. Tiara that had a few inches of veil, light, and covered her face in a silhouette that still showed her facial features. Drop diamond earings that was not too much. The train was not too long and was circular in shape, a unique style that enhanced the fullness of Kate's gown. This wedding gown by Sarah Burton is a piece that can signify simplicity and comfort. This gown had a traditional, yet modern effect to it. Kate Middleton, now Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge, was stunning.
