The father’s buttonhole is unusually small.

William looks delighted.

I’ll be glad to see the end of so many sleeveless wedding gowns. This should do it. She still looks delicious.

Me, too. :)

I thought they said they suspected she was wearing the tiara that the Queen gifted to Diana on her wedding day, which she didn’t wear since she wore the Spencer tiara. Was it the Windsor Love Knot? It doesn’t look like it to me, but it’s hard to tell under the veil.

Catherine’s dress is quite beautiful. I’ve just seen the Count and Countess of Wessex. Also Elton John and his partner.

Me, too, on the tearing up, LOL, AND the sleeveless wedding dresses. I have never been a huge fan of those, though I suspect LP will choose one.

The right side of her train appears to be askew. I wonder they didn’t set it straight.

Morning all!

Well, I am here. I suppose waking up at 6 every day for the last week confused my body into thinking that it’s my new wake-up time. I woke up 20 minutes ago and tried to fall back asleep, but just tossed and turned, so here I am.

I turned on the tv just in time for a very high camera shot to make me dizzy. LOL Maureen Johnson is doing a livestream with entertaining commentary, so I’m watching that as I watch. :)

They are showing crowds of people who appear to be in a church in Orlando and Los Angeles who seem to be participating as if they were in attendance.

JEN, there is still a lot of ceremony to go, the actual church service, but the vows are just completed. You still are in time for all the post wedding pageantry and parading.

I just saw an Anglican nun to William’s right.

Her brother is much darker than she is. He looks very tanned next to all the pale Brits.

The bride had to negotiate the tomb of the Unknown Warrior. The train was perfect as she set off. Nice reading by Catherine’s brother, he has practised hard. His tie could have been straighter, lol.

My face is on but I applied my nail varnish as Her Majesty was driven to the Abbey.

I was thinking that if I had been able to have whatever dress I wanted but didn’t know what suited me best and someone who knew better than me what was a good choice I would have presented the person with photos of Princess Grace’s dress, the wedding gown from Sound of Music, and the wedding gown Vanessa Redgrave wore in Camelot as Guinevere and told the person to keep those in mind as they designed. I wonder if Catherine is aware how much her dress resembles Princess Grace’s dress?

Are you going to go out for a celebratory lunch or dinner somewhere later, GRAYMAYNE? You need to show the bracelet, face, and nail varnish off somewhere.

One of the functions of an adult bridesmaid in the US is to adjust the train once the bride makes it to the altar.

I had an hour long service but we never sat. We were either standing or kneeling the entire time. I just looked at her sitting there with the veil. I wish I had seen her sit and whether she had to worry about pulling her veil and tiara off when she sat.

We never sat at our ceremony, either, and it was quite long. But we attended a wedding of friends of ours not long after, and they sat through a great majority of their ceremony, and off to the side as William and Catherine are doing. That was a Catholic ceremony, though I’d been to other Catholic weddings where they did not sit, but I was told it was because in that church, marriage, as a holy union, is a focus on God, not the couple. So they sat off to the side and the ceremony revolved around the church other than the brief exchange of vows by the couple.

I don’t recall Diana and Charles sitting off to the side, either.

There really are almost no flowers in the Abbey. It looks lovely but since I imagine the trees can be returned or planted for some charity I imagine it cut costs tremendously.

My wedding was a Catholic one and we stood or knelt right in front of the alter the entire time. There was no wandering off or sitting down. We should have test run the kneeler. It was obviously meant for use for only one prayer. The padding was very insufficient and the metal edges cut through. Both of us attempted to shift our weight from knee to knee with discretion the entire time. My DS and I were grasping hands furiously to keep from falling over as we shifted. I’m sure it looked a bit of a struggle if you could have seen us from the front.

I suppose I am terribly uncultured, but I have to confess to being bored by all this stuff after the vows. I’ve just realized I’ve never actually been to a religious wedding. I’ve been in churches for funerals and baptisms/christenings, but never a wedding.
