William & Kate

Are you guys excited about the Royal Wedding?  I'm bursting at the seams! When I was a girl growing up in Canada Princess Diana was such a fave of mine. We still pledge allegiance to the Queen and all that stuff so Charles and Di was a big day. I remember getting up and watching with my mom who had stacks of magazines on Diana, and everything the day entailed. It was like my favorite cousin was getting married and we had a front row seat...in front of the television.

Flash forward and here we are again with William and Kate. I just love her (and can't believe I'm waxing on like a cuckoo bird about this). She seems so down to earth and like a girlfriend any of us could have. I came across these pictures this morning and have officially turned into my mother: I got all choked up and needed a kleenex. Stay tuned for me getting up by the light of the silvery moon to watch the wedding...I'm getting mini eclairs, brewing some tea and probably tossing back a margarita just for fun all at  3 or 4am. Go Wills and Kate!!

I can't help but think about how happy Princess Diana would be to see these two together.  *sniffle*

Check those massive crowds...it has to be so overwhelming, yet exciting for her.
I'm losing it - I feel like my bff is getting married.  She just has that vibe to her, no?

Thus ends my gushing nerd alert over the Royal Wedding although I can't promise there won't be a barrage of tweets in the early morning.  Are you guys watching??

She is gorgeous! I get all choked up thinking about Princess Di's baby getting married and her not being there. So sad. I can't wait either!

KatiePerk said...

She is gorgeous! I am curious about the dress. I am dvr-ing to watch later!

I can't wait!! I'm a hot mess today - can barely focus on work and I rarely get like this. WOOT!

Dancing Branflake said...

I am excited! I wont be watching but I love her and him.

PhotoPuddle said...

Yes, we'll be watching. We've having a bit of a tea party with family and rather looking forward to it! Margarita's at 3am sounds like fun as well!
And love that Mario Testino photo!

Daisy said...

love this post. she's such a gorgeous bff!

Mairead said...

Ahhhh Carrie I'm so excited too! We're having a party to celebrate - pimms, cupcakes and champagne! I have been watching documentary's ALL day about them - I'm such a loser!

this free bird said...

You are totally NOT a loser!! I wish I was in the UK to take it all in. LUCKY YOU!!

annelise said...

HELL YES!! I cannot wait. I don't care if people think it's lame, I think they're lame. It's perfect timing in Australia - Friday evening. I'll be in comfy clothes, champagne in hand, on the couch and in front of the tv.

Thinking about her dress makes me so excited - I'm betting on long lace sleeves. Thinking about how many people are going to be watching her leave the hotel and make her way to the Abbey makes my head explode. Seriously. How overwhelming. Can't wait!!

My sorority is having a watch party starting with pre-wedding coverage at 1am. Is that die-hard enough? lol. Our formal is tomorrow night and my dress is white... is it bad I want to pretend it's Halloween and be Kate? Unhealthy much? No? Excellent.
Bisous,
Rachel

My alram(s) are set. We have our Tea menu planned the kids and i....(My drink may have a little something celebratory in it;)

kimbirdy said...

here's the only thing i think/feel in regards to the wedding: growing up i thought prince william was soooo cute {we're the same age}. but now i'm soooo glad it was never possible to end up with a boy whom i thought was cute as a pre-teen. they almost always grow up to lose all attractiveness, such is the case here. hopefully for kate he's got a great personality. too mean?

i'm probably the only one who's going to say this here, but i'm not really into the wedding.

Dale said...

Yes, I'm excited, I dont think I'll be getting up to watch at 4am here in California but I'll definitely watch the footage. I can't wait to see what her dress looks like. They are a great couple..
Nice post

I haven't really gotten into all of it. I think the fact that it's everywhere has overwhelmed me. BUT I do like Kate. She seems like a genuine, good, girl next door. Who knows? She could be a huge B, but for some reason I doubt that and really like her!

this free bird said...

Dale I'm having a nap and staying up all bloody night long...coverage starts at midnight and goes clear through to 5:30am. Should make for an interesting work day tomorrow. hehe

Mo Pie, Please said...

She really does have that bff kind of vibe! I love to think that Princess Di is thrilled to see this taking place. I can't wait to see Kate's dress!

Marcela said...

OH gee! I thought, I really thought I wont get too emotional with this, but now, just a night before, Im quite excited. As we dont have a day off here, as the english do, we are still allowed to watch at work in a live stream. Excitement, excitement!! Woohooo!!!

It's hard to not love her. She's just so likable. Sadly I won't be watching live, but I'll catch up on TiVo when I get to SF.

Stephanie Shepherd said...

YES! So excited!!

Josie said...

She's so gorgeous and ladylike. I won't be watching the wedding live but can't wait to see all the coverage later!

Indie.Tea said...

I haven't been keeping up with the Royal Wedding, but it seems SO glamorous!

jessica said...

she's so gorgeous!! can't wait to watch!! i'm so excited too!!!!

heather yalin said...

that sounds like so much fun! wish i could be there watching it with you!

heather yalin said...

oh, and i like how you've officially turned into your mother :)

Marissa said...

Wow - that is a serious commitment to get up at 3am. I'll be watching the video recaps sometime around lunch. :)

Olivia.Dee said...

i am over the moon excited about this wedding! I wiiish that I took work off tomorrow so I could stay up late and then sleep all day. i might have to stay off twitter so i don't hear about it!

Jammer said...

ahhh I just want to see her dress! Tell the chef to start getting the popcorn ready...it's going to be one heck of a show!

Ashleigh said...

Girl I'm on the edge of my seat! Soooo excited! I feel like my bff's getting married too! My friend is on her way here right now for our slumber party. Aaaaahhh!! Totally thought the same thing about Diana this morning, I think she'd be thrilled !

RosaLovesDC said...

I'll probably watch a little bit of it since I get up at 4:30-5:00 AM anyway, so I will have breakfast and get ready while watching the wedding. I am just dying to find out who's designing her dress.

Claire Kiefer said...

I haven't really paid any attention to it (no idea why I'm just not that interested) but I'll probably record the wedding and watch it tomorrow night. I can't imagine how much pressure she must feel! Everyone is obsessing over her dress (and she knows it will be nitpicked and analyzed to no end), and there will be 1900 people there?? OMG. That sounds like one big panic attack to me. But I'm sure she'll handle it gracefully. You can let me know! ;)

LyddieGal said...

Awwwww tooo cute. I'll watch, but I've got work so I set my DVR. Holy cow, it's scheduled from 4 am until 4pm! I'd better set all the episodes of Glee I haven't watched yet to "save until I delete".

Chic on the Cheap

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

She does give that vibe--very every woman. And she has great hair. Kate looks very happy in that pic with her mom and her sister and I really hope this marriage and royal thing works out for her.

The Suburb Experiment said...

I can't stay up that late (I have to work tomorrow!) but I will be wearing a fascinator for fun. Any excuse for this American to wear a fascinator. :)

I wish I could stay up to watch it! Even if I could, I know I would unfortunately pass out due to allergy medicine!
Eclairs and tea sound perfect for watching this event though :) I hope you enjoy every minute of it!

xoxo

Jess said...

Watching it right now!!!! I've definitely gotten the chills (and a little choked up) multiple times. My husband thinks I'm crazy....

Happy Friday!

Debby said...

Can't wait to catch all of the highlights. I just know she will be beyond stunning. So sad that Diana is not able to be there to see her oldest boy get married. xo

Vic said...

he is sooooooo handsome...sadly i don't watch or read but i hope you enjoy pretty lady! xo

Priscila Peters said...

She's gorgeous!
I actually forgot about the wedding till now when I started blogging...
Have a nice weekend

Valerie said...

I love them together, she's gorgeous! Her dress is STUNNING (we've all been watching at work, hehe). Everything about her looks amazing (especially her body, which makes me want to start shredding asap). TGIF!

Higgenbottom said...

Hee hee! You are so sweet to get so sniffly over their wedding! They are such a cute couple! Ps, Happy Shredding! I love your updates!

this free bird said...

I stayed up all night, bawled my head off, ate cream puffs, laughed at victoria beckham's black mess, and then cried some more. It was ROYALLY EXCELLENT!!

xoxo,

Annie said...

I know what you mean Carrie - such a bff vibe.. so hard not to love her!! Everything was just amazing and she looked PERFECT. I'm so curious about the little like - how did she sleep last night? what did she have for breakfast? lol I was SO nervous for my 115 person wedding, I just can't wrap my mind around how she felt.. but I bet it was a dreamy autopilot of sorts :)

Katie said...

Missed it. Stupid hospital.

la petite coquine said...

Gah-I love this so much! And I love how much YOU love it-even better!

For as down to Earth and sweet as Kate normally comes off, I was blown away by her composure on such a crazy day. Here's hoping she becomes Queen!

Ms. Givens said...

Carrie, you made me get weepy!
Its such fun living through your enthusiasm.
When I was younger and my hair wasnt gray or platinum people were always telling me I looked like Princess Di and Helen Hunt. I think its my nose. :)

indie.electronic.alternative. said...

Huge girl crush on Kate. Sigh. By the way, I just awarded you the sunshine award on my blog! http://indieelectronicalternative.blogspot.com/2011/04/receiving-and-now-giving-sunshine-award.html

Kelly said...

She was just stunning. IS still stunning. I'd hate her if I didn't love her so much!

She Wore It Well said...

i am SOOOOOO thrilled with the whole wedding. it was magical. australian is becoming increasingly anti royal family and its relevance, yet it was the most watched event in history on our TV!! HA!!!!!!!

im so glad i didn't watch it alone, i cried like a baby during the replay the next day.

i watched diana and charles' wedding last night (i wasn't alive when they got married!) and it was so sad. she was too naive to know what she was doing and he didn't want to be there. she was in love with the idea of marrying a prince and he married her cos he had to. it was very sad. although the sermon by one of the bishop's was the best i've ever heard.

Anna Walker said...

Oh my goodness!
I loved the wedding! I got up at 2AM to watch it! It was super freaking amazing! It was amazing how in love they were and how you could just tell by what they said to each other and how they looked at each other [Much different than Charles and Diana, when he responded "Whatever Love Is" to a question asking if he was in love with her]

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

Pop Champagne said...

she's really pretty, sometimes I think that she's too pretty for him if he was just a regular dude she wouldn't look at him twice haha! but yes they make a cute couple, I love how she's not a spotlight whore and let him do his thing :)

Marie said...

She's beautiful and charming!:D I love her dress and makeup.:D
