this week on tumblr (royal wedding edition)


If you thought I could or would stay above the fray surrounding THE WEDDING OF THE CENTURY, then you don't know me very well at all. I'm irrationally drawn to this glorious royal event and all of the hullabaloo, nonsense, over-the-topness and glamor of it all. I mean... princes and princesses! Tiaras! Horse-drawn carriages. I dare you not to get a little bit swept up. Even if you didn't set your alarm for an early-morning live viewing in your PJs and fancy hat, I want to share a few Royal Wedding-themed favorites from Tumblr, just for you. Now go fix yourself a gin and tonic, or cup of tea, and get obsessed.


For your Royal Wedding Party! I feel like a serious failure for not hosting a party. I mean, when I look back on this day in history, I'll have to tell my grandbabies that I was just behaving like a normal human being and did not throw a fantastically over-the-top Royal Wedding party. Future generations will judge me.

Taking it a bit too far, maybe. But I respect the commitment.

Wouldn't this be a cute dessert for your Royal Wedding party?

Even the grocery stores are getting in on the action. Stop by the P-Chop for deals on fish and chips, tea, bangers and mash and even a little tiny cake.

I really, truly, sincerely hope that crazy hats become more commonplace. The fascinators are starting to creep back in, but I'm cheering for a full-fledge return of hats. For both men and women. C'mon Kate, if anyone can do it, it's you.

And yes, in case you had any doubts, I woke up early to watch the procession and the wedding live. And yes, of course, I loved every minute of it. Those princes are just the cutest and the new princess is gorgeous, obviously.  And I really like those big trees they brought into the Abbey. Almost like a quiet wedding in the woods, right? Hmm. As a sidenote, it's so cruel that they don't let the bride and groom kiss in the Church of England. I mean, c'mon already.

So that's that. Happy Royal Wedding Day!

  1. Yeah, so I was awake for most of it. Scones weren't made (thanks to the gut-bomb I consumed last night), but I did drink tea and wear a little fascinator. Going out with hubby and kids tonight and think I might wear (watch it, Troy Night Out, I don't know if you can handle this fabulousity).

  2. Fabulous post, Christine! We had such a wonderful morning watching the wedding, sipping tea and feeling so happy for them. It was so beautiful in every way. They are such a great couple! (Oh, and I would love to see hats come very much back in style here!)

  3. I'm obsessed with both "the motherland" and monarchy as an institution (it's where my moniker QEIII comes from) so I'm all swept up, too. I love The Duchess' style (she's def one of my style icons, alongside Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Conrad), and The Dress was classic. And how much did you love reception gown!? Um, that's an idea I'm so stealing! They seemed so happy and relaxed. God bless!

  4. Ah Queen Elizabeth III! I totally get it now. I adore the Dutchess' style too and both of her gowns. Love it love it love it. I even managed to get a whole bunch of guys to buy into my Royal Wedding party idea, not an easy feat, but well worth it!
