It is hours until the big moment
and with a barrage of news updates here in the UK
I am extremely in the mood now
for THE wedding of the year
As promised I will now be sending updates of the beautiful couple's big day
and I will be chatting about stories through history
that add to the magic of this right Royal occasion
I hope that you enjoy our journey through time
the next few hours and beyond
oh and stick with this post as I will UPDATE as I chat with you all
Let us (the world) celebrate !!!!! right here - right now !!!!!
It is said that Queen Victoria started the trend of exquisite wedding dresses
As we know - one of THE biggest questions is
WHAT WILL THE DRESS BE LIKE
which thanks to Queen Victoria I guess
has added to the HUGE decision of what dress to wear
With an estimated 2 billion people watching
so that is roughly 4 billion eyes
Kate must have had the choice of a lifetime to make
I know that I among so many others
cannot wait to see the dress
( I am not a girly girl at all but I have been swept up in this dress malarkey )
So now I am going to meander through the years
and see some of the stunning dresses
styles, symbolism and trends that brides set and millions have loved and emulated
Queen Elizabeth's dress was that befitting a future Queen
and the dress was interwoven with symbolism and dignity
Princess Margaret was allowed to exude her film star quality when she married
and I feel, even down to her choice of make up - red lips - wow
she has such iconic beauty and I have to say that I think that this is my favourite image
Princess Grace - A film star with a heavenly Royal beauty
In 1950 Audrey Hepburn set the camera's alight and a style all of her own
Gosh - She was sooooo stunning !!!!!
For Princess Anne it was all about the sleeves in the 1970's and a romantic simplicity
Princess Diana and THAT dress in the 1980's
I can remember vividly watching her getting out of that carriage
and that never ending train
and how the dress really did set a weath of designers to work
recreating and replicating that style of dress for a whole decade
Dresses became more and more romantic .....
and strapless .....
and even on TV/Film it was all about that dress choice
oooooh - I cannot WAIT to see what Kate has chosen
Hey - let's not forget the groom
They say that Prince William will wear his Irish Guards Scarlet Tunic
I think Wills is awesome !!!!!
This is a pic of him chatting to crowds last night - hours before his big day
You just gotta LOVE him for that !!!!!
oooooh now things are hotting up
I think that Victoria Beckhman looks fab !!!!!
How does she hold that Philip Treacy hat on her head ?
Oh heck - I thought I would comment on my blog along the way
but this is just too lush
and I have cried already
so I will be saying bye for now as I want to enjoy every second of this spectacle
I will update later and hope that you enjoy too and don't forget your tissues
