Royal Wedding Watch Party

in All Posts

Did you watch the royal wedding this morning?  We did!


Royal waves!


I was so excited that I could barely sleep last night.  When my alarm went off at 5:00 AM, I practically bounced out of bed to prep for the party. 


We had a spread of scones, cinnamon buns, breads, peanut butter, jam, fruit, teas, and coffee.




Just as I set out the last goodies, the guests begin to arrive.  Allison, Jen, Kate + Nate + Liam, Katie, and Brittany were brave enough to attend the party that began at 5:30 AM. 


Liam was so festive!


We watched the wedding live.  It was just an exciting thing to experience, knowing that so many people all over the world were watching, too.  I think the world let out a collective “Awww!” when Wills got out of the car and a sigh when Kate appeared in her dress.

Liam is a future fashion aficionado!


By the way – I loved her dress.  It was classy, appropriate, and princess-y.  Perfect, perfect, perfect!  Lace sleeves are fierce when you do them right.



My breakfast spread includes toast and peanut butter and a few bites of scones.  Plus some lovely fruit.


Oh, and several cups of coffee.  The wedding was worth the 5:00 AM wake-up call, but man – it’s going to hurt later.


Did you watch the royal wedding?  What did you think of the ceremony, dresses, and the hats?

    I watched it too- and it’s still on in the background!! GORGEOUS. I’m obsessed with how poised Kate is!!

  • Kelly April 29, 2011, 8:16 am

    You girls look like you had a mah-ve-lous time. 🙂 And I love hats too! I’m more of a winter hat girl, but my hair has to be long or I just can’t pull it off.

  • Khushboo April 29, 2011, 8:16 am

    I couldn’t watch it live because I’m at work but I was reading live updates! She looked gorgeous and will fit in perfectly in the royal family! Princess Di would have been so proud!

  • Rachel @ EatMoreMeatLess April 29, 2011, 8:17 am

    Loved Pippa’s dress!!

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:03 pm

      Me too. So fashionable yet classy.

  • Anne April 29, 2011, 8:18 am

    Of course did I watch it! I was off for the week and living in Europe made it a little easier time-wise. Kate sure did look gorgeous and they seem so very happy. Love. Now I am awaiting THE kiss!

  • Katie (Sweet Tater) April 29, 2011, 8:18 am

    Liam’s face is the BEST!

  • Michelle @ Living Learning Earning April 29, 2011, 8:19 am

    I definitely got up at 4:30 this morning to tune in. You’re right – soooo worth the early wake up!

    Liam is absolutely adorable 🙂

  • Jessica April 29, 2011, 8:19 am

    I watched it and cried. It was so incredibly beautiful and magical! I felt like I was watching a fairytale unfold! I am jealous of your party though 🙂 I had a party at the gym! I’ve never seen so many cardio machines being used as everything was enamored with the tv!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday April 29, 2011, 8:19 am

    I watched at the gym this morning while I ran on the treadmill.

    …I’m still watching now actually.

  • Kath April 29, 2011, 8:20 am

    LOL @ LIAM!!!

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) April 29, 2011, 8:20 am

    HAHA @ the dress face pics.
    I loved her dress too…it was perfect in every way. William and Harry didn’t look too shabby either 🙂
    Oh and I want Kate’s earrings!

  • Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) April 29, 2011, 8:20 am

    Didnt watch, dont care. I will read all about it for a few days on blogs, no doubt. They are my source of news 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:04 pm

      Hahah I also get all my news via blogs.

  • Billie April 29, 2011, 8:21 am

    Liam is just adorable. Thankfully watching the wedding from Liverpool means I had a lie in and saw it real time. You guys are crazy.

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat April 29, 2011, 8:21 am

    Aww what a lovely party! I watched the wedding on the treadmill at my gym, and I LOVED Kate’s dress! The lace was so elegant and classy, but the dress was so modern-bride at the same time. And William looked very handsome too. 😉

  • Julia April 29, 2011, 8:22 am

    The TV is still on and I’m trying to get some work done.
    Thank God I did not have to get up so early as I live in Germany 😉
    Loved, loved, loooooooved the dress. And the choral singing gave me creeps. All in all very touching.
    Can’t wait to see the KISS!!!

  • Elizabeth@The Sweet Life April 29, 2011, 8:22 am

    I watched–stunning!!!!!!! What a fun way to celebrate.

  • Christine @ Merf In Progress April 29, 2011, 8:23 am

    You girls look way too good for 5:30 AM! Kate looked so beautiful, her dress was OUTSTANDING.

  • Parita @ myinnershakti April 29, 2011, 8:31 am

    I started watching at 5:30 as well (at the gym). I loved all of it. They seem so well-suited for one another. And her dress was absolutely gorgeous as was she. The only thing that kept going through my mind was how is she not crying. I would have been a ball full of tears the whole time…LOL! I guess that’s why I’ll never be a princess. Ha!

  • E April 29, 2011, 8:33 am

    I didn’t get to watch the whole thing (however, it was recorded on multiple channels 😉 ), but what I saw was beautiful. I absolutely loved her dress (sleeves are so classy!), loved Pippa’s dress and thought William, Harry, Charles & Phillip looked so handsome in their uniforms.

  • Allison @ Happy Tales April 29, 2011, 8:33 am

    Haaaaa i had so much fun this morning with y’all!!!! Thanks so much for hosting 🙂 And I love that Kristien and Nate were so into it, what awesome hubbies! (PS. loooove that picture you captured of baby Liam!).

  • Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out April 29, 2011, 8:35 am

    Haha! I get up at 5:00 AM everyday and slept in today. I’m jealous!

  • Lizzy @ runbakerace April 29, 2011, 8:38 am

    The hats were awesome!!!!! She loved beautiful

  • Leanne (Bride to Mrs.) April 29, 2011, 8:39 am

    I watched the entire thing… I loved every second of it!

  • allison @ thesundayflog April 29, 2011, 8:40 am

    awh you are so fun!!!! i set my alarm for 3:51am!!! it was wonderful and totally worth the 5 cups of coffee i downed…she was spectacular – elegant and classy

  • Jen April 29, 2011, 8:42 am

    I didn’t watch it because I don’t have a TV, but I’m looking at all the pictures online. I love the crazy hats!

    I also looooooooove Twinings tea (possibly even more than outrageous headwear), my absolute favorite!

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:05 pm

      Me too! What is your favorite flavor?

      • Jen April 29, 2011, 3:30 pm

        Oooh hard to choose! Chai, Irish breakfast, and English breakfast are my top three.

  • Freya April 29, 2011, 8:44 am

    5am!? Wow! She didn’t get out of the car til 11am here! But yes, I watched up til then (then went and studied more), and it was beautiful. I LOVE Kate! And I love Harry :p

    • Freya April 29, 2011, 8:45 am

      OH and David and Victoria Beckham looked AMAZING!

  • Jen G. April 29, 2011, 8:44 am

    Why, oh why, don’t we wear fascinators in the US? Forget Kate’s dress, I want Beatrice’s headwear…

  • Angela April 29, 2011, 8:46 am

    I loved it all. Definitely a day to be proud to be British!

    Well done to all of you for getting up so early to watch it!

  • Caitlin @ The Caitie Experiment April 29, 2011, 8:46 am

    I love how you set up the wedding spread right under your wedding picture — so cute!

    My sister lives in TX, and was up at 3:30 her time texting me (4:30EST) — dedication! I LOVED the dress; so classy and elegant and completely appropriate for a church as storied as Westminster Abbey. She is absolutely stunning! I normally think Pippa isn’t so cute, but she looked gorgeous, too! I laughed so hard when someone on tv compared Beatrice and Eugenie’s getup to “ugly stepsister”… and sort of agreed!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg April 29, 2011, 8:49 am

    I only watched some of it — none of the actual wedding, just the procession. I thought Kate looked beautiful!

  • Baking 'n' Books April 29, 2011, 8:50 am

    I love the simplicity of her dress but still haven’t seen much of it. All they are showing is the throngs of people there now!!

  • Elizabeth April 29, 2011, 8:51 am

    everything was AMAZING! Had tea and scones, with clotted cream of course! oh, and whenever my wedding happens to be, hats will be required.

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:06 pm

      People wore hats to our wedding because the Husband is English 🙂 It was fun!

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape April 29, 2011, 8:52 am

    omg, LIam’s face at Kate’s dress is too adorable!!! I did not end up watching the wedding. I really wanted to, but it aired at 3 in the morning here. I’m sure my mother dvred it, though. So it will be watched eventually!

  • Errign April 29, 2011, 8:54 am

    I only woke up early to see Prince Harry in uniform. 😉

  • Kelly April 29, 2011, 8:56 am

    I didn’t like her dress for me (it wasn’t my style) but I thought it looked fabulous on her. It was appropriate, classy and she wore it very well. 🙂

  • Hilary April 29, 2011, 9:00 am

    So jealous of your party! It looks like a blast and obviously Kate and Will are too beautiful to not love.

  • Shannon April 29, 2011, 9:01 am

    I didn’t watch the wedding but I love Kate’s dress. Very elegant and princess-y

  • Kelly April 29, 2011, 9:06 am

    Oh, sigh. Such a wonderful event, and I did get up to watch it. Both Kate and William looked wonderful and make such a lovely couple. I absolutely loved her dress and thought it was so classy, so dignified. Just beautiful.

  • Aimoree April 29, 2011, 9:09 am

    I watched the tail-end of the parade and the balcony kiss. So cute! And I LOVE the dress, sooo gorgeous!!

  • Lindsay April 29, 2011, 9:14 am

    Love this!!! I didn’t turn it on until I woke up at 7 am, but was so happy to see her dress and their kiss on the balcony 🙂

  • Stephanie April 29, 2011, 9:15 am

    Definitely woke up early to watch! LOVED her dress. I thought it was just perfect. And the tiara too. So gorgeous.

    I was wondering why her sister, the maid of honor, was wearing white though. Loved her dress to but is that a royal wedding thing?

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:07 pm

      I think it might be an English thing – that it’s OK for someone beyond the bride to wear white or light-colored dresses.

      Can readers weigh in?

      • Tracy April 30, 2011, 10:10 am

        I’m only very minimally British (and have never lived in the UK), but near as I can tell, it’s standard for the female members of a Royal wedding party to wear white. All the little girls wore white in this wedding as well as Diana’s (white or off-white anyway). And of course the males wear some sort of regal/military uniform. Pippa didn’t chose white… they told her that she was to wear white. And damn, I think she may even be more gorgeous than Kate!

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me April 29, 2011, 9:16 am

    What an awesome party! I love the food spread you have. So cute! As for the wedding, I could care less. But I’m basically a man in a woman’s body, lol!

  • Erin @ Big Girl Feats April 29, 2011, 9:21 am

    I watched and totally teared up. I was like “why am I crying? I don’t even know these people.” Hormones! We’re going to a friend’s wedding tomorrow and I can’t wait. I sort of want to wear a smashing hat.

  • Jaime April 29, 2011, 9:21 am

    watched and LOVED every second of it. I am seriously in love with all things British – particularly the royal family, so this was super exciting for me! Cate looked stunning. I thought her sister Pippa looked gorgeous as well 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) April 29, 2011, 9:24 am

    I saw the end of it while I did my strength training. She did look beautiful! I love that her dress had lace on it. It was so princess like! The hats were insane!

  • Gwen April 29, 2011, 9:32 am

    Watching the wedding was so fun! Thinking if I lived in London of COURSE I would have had to go be in the crowds!

  • Abby April 29, 2011, 9:33 am

    I got up and watched it! I loved Kate and Pippa’s dresses. That tan hat in the last photo you posted is HIDEOUS. That woman must not have been thinking when she got dressed. lol.

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 9:35 am

      Thats Princess Beatrice and I think she was thinking, “How can I upstage Kate?” LOL

      • Victoria April 29, 2011, 12:31 pm

        Dude, I was thinking that for BOTH her and her sister. Totally trying to upstage the the bride.

        • Tracy April 30, 2011, 10:12 am

          Just trying to be rebels, like their mother…

    • Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey April 29, 2011, 10:07 am

      That’s a Phillip Treacy hat (aka – a big deal). But I agree, it wasn’t my favorite. I like Princess Eugenie’s hat (and outfit) much more.


      • Jen April 29, 2011, 3:49 pm

        I loved Princess Beatrice’s outfit. I would kill for that. However, the hat would need to be replaced with something less sculpted.

  • Lisa Fine April 29, 2011, 9:34 am

    No tomatoes and mushrooms with breakfast? Just kidding. 🙂

    I didn’t get to watch the wedding since we don’t have TV, but watched a few recaps online this morning. I love watching the crowds too – it’s amazing how a weddding like this brings so many people together.

  • Cait @ Beyond Bananas April 29, 2011, 9:38 am

    LOVE that you had a party… your pictures are awesome of everyones expressions as well!

    I was on my way out the door to work and could only catch Kate as she entered the church. She looked stunning!

  • Emma @ Getting There & Going Places April 29, 2011, 9:42 am

    Haha! Such a great idea to throw a party! Although I couldn’t ever get up at 5 and prepare for a party! 😛
    That hat Princess Beatrice is sporting is definitely hideous! 😛 I also didn’t like Victoria Beckham’s sour face! Who wears black to a wedding?! 😛
    Kate’s dress was so incredibly stunning! Indeed very classy but modern as well.. Loved it! 😀

  • Ashley @ Feeding Ashley April 29, 2011, 9:43 am

    I’m having so much fun reading through the comments. I didn’t wake up to watch it, but it’s exciting to read through all of the recaps.

  • Julie April 29, 2011, 9:57 am

    Did any of you cry? I sure did haha, how lame! Kate looked amaaaazing & so did Pippa! I was wondering if you’d watch since your husband is British 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:08 pm

      I didn’t cry but the Husband did….

      • Saima April 29, 2011, 5:49 pm

        awww abt the husband cryin’!! prior to this i didn’t really care much for Harry but he was soo adorable today….when entering the Church w/ Will he seemed more nervous ‘for’ his bro, sneaking a peak at Kate when she was walking down the aisle and ribbing his bro abt it, & sharing a joke with Phillip @ the balcony!

  • Lara @ six times the yum April 29, 2011, 9:59 am

    Oh what fun!! Looks like you guys had a great time. I hadn’t planned on watching the wedding, but I caught the vows part when I was at the gym this morning. I loved the dress and all it’s lace. 🙂

  • Lauren April 29, 2011, 10:10 am

    Umm, yes I watched!! I was up at 4:45am…my Mom got up at 3:30am (!!) to see all the pre-stuff. We all wore tiaras. 🙂 It was just…MAGICAL. 🙂

  • Sara @ OurDogBuffy April 29, 2011, 10:10 am

    So beautiful! I didn’t watch but have been surfing the Web at work looking at the photos 🙂 Sounds like a great breakfast spread and party. I now wish I had watched. And now I wish I had brought an English muffin with me. Much more appropriate than a protein shake …

  • Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey April 29, 2011, 10:10 am

    I love it. I was up early (before 5) watching with my pup (my boyfriend slept through it, willingly), and loved every second of it.
    I’ve got my DVR recording 11 hours of coverage on BBC America, so I’ll have lots of time to watch it all again over the weekend. Squee! 🙂

  • Morgan April 29, 2011, 10:10 am

    Your blog post on the wedding is hilarious! That little guy is adorable too!! Love it!

  • Andie ( April 29, 2011, 10:37 am

    Love that you hosted a Royal Wedding party. Liam’s face is like, “Snooze. I’ve seen better.”

    The cutest.

  • Kate @ Walking in the Rain April 29, 2011, 10:39 am

    You ladies are way more perky than I would be! I was up at 5:00am my time, but I’m pretty sure the wedding festivities didn’t start until 1:00 and I was dead asleep. I did look for pictures of the dress the first thing when I woke up though! Gorgeous. I think her dress was perfect.

  • Joanna@ Drizzle of Sunshine April 29, 2011, 10:42 am

    How fun!! I wish I had enough interested friends to have a little party like that. I didn’t get to watch it live but I watched the recaps and She looked STUNNING! She’s so pretty. And of course William looked handsome!

  • Laura April 29, 2011, 10:44 am

    I got up early and watched, too! My husband was sweet and got up with me so we had our own little party. 🙂 ….and I totally got out my wedding veil and wore it with my pajamas while we watched!

  • Evan Thomas April 29, 2011, 10:45 am

    It was totally epic. If Kate wasn’t already such a stunner, Pippa would have stole the show.

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing April 29, 2011, 10:48 am

    looks like a fab time! we’ve been catching up on the coverage all morning here at work. one time i’m glad we work in a newsroom with lots of tv’s running! 🙂

  • Beth @ 990 Square April 29, 2011, 10:57 am

    I got up to watch it before work–and then we had a tea party in the office with scones, clotted cream, shortbread and cake!

  • chelsea April 29, 2011, 11:21 am

    How fun!! I so wish I could of had a party. I thought everything was just lovely, the hats were amazing, the clothes were fun, her dress was a little understated but still wonderful. I just love weddings and everytime they show them on tv I get choked up. I also feel like I really know her since I watched the Lifetime movie William and Kate. I know that sounds crazy, but its true!

  • monicanelsonfitness April 29, 2011, 11:23 am

    you rock for actually putting in so much effort and making the most of it and getting up, how fun! I am now catching up…
    I adore Kate and her dress. She is bloody brilliant!

    How cute it LIAM. Do you pinch his cheeks all day or what?!

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table April 29, 2011, 11:26 am

    How fun! No bloody Bloody Marys!? LOL!

    The baby’s outfit and expression is SO cute.

  • Carol April 29, 2011, 11:26 am

    Your party looks like it was a lot of fun:) Yes the wedding was very nice…the dress, the ceremony:) One of my students thought Kate’s dress looked “itchy”.

  • Sana April 29, 2011, 11:33 am

    I had an exam so I could not watch, watching all the post wedding coverage 🙂

  • megan @ blackberries for jam April 29, 2011, 11:39 am

    I set my alarm for 5:50 and watched the whole thing. Everything was fabulous, and I think they look truly happy, but I was a little disappointed with the kiss!

  • Taylor @ Delish World April 29, 2011, 11:44 am

    Haha, I posted that same hat pic on my blog. The Princesses were def trying to upstage their cousin! I loved it! I watched the ceremony at the gym. All the ladies were doing squats and lunges and crunches in front of the TVs. We all sighed and squealed when we saw Kate in her dress. She was so classy.

  • Lucy @ The Sweet Touch April 29, 2011, 11:52 am

    I had a feeling you would be up early to celebrate. I dvr-ed the first part and got up at 6 to watch! It was a true fairytale wedding, loved it!

    Ps. Liam=cutest thing ever!!! I love his face when he saw Kate’s dress:D

  • Tina April 29, 2011, 11:56 am

    I love this!! I wish I was there to watch with you!!

  • Mastering Public Health (@MasPublicHealth) April 29, 2011, 12:00 pm

    I woke up “by accident” at 5:30 so I figured I would turn on the TV. I watched for an hour, then couldn’t go back to sleep for another hour (7:30) — you’re right… it IS going to hurt later (AKA now)! But it was beautiful, charming, and elegant. Kate looked so graceful and unflappable. I was surprised to see that she was wearing just the type of wedding dress I’ve always imagined for myself!

  • Amber K April 29, 2011, 12:00 pm

    I absolutely did not. I like watching weddings of people I actually know 😉

    Plus I’m on the West coast and I like this silly little thing called sleep 🙂

    Liam is so adorable though. Oh my goodnes, cute!!

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) April 29, 2011, 12:05 pm

    Haha! What a cute party idea! I didn’t watch the wedding, but I will catch glimpses of it on Youtube I’m sure. 😀

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin April 29, 2011, 12:07 pm

    Man you guys are so hardcore to wake up so early! It looks like a great party though. 😀 I woke up too late to see the wedding, but I watched it from 7 am onwards. Kate looked so beautiful!

  • Carolyn L. April 29, 2011, 12:16 pm

    I watched it early this morning, and I thought it was fantastic. It looked like a live-action Disney princess movie. I got on Facebook afterward, though, and so many people were mad that American journalists were covering it. I don’t understand why people have to be mad about finding a moment of joy among all the devastation in the world.

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:09 pm

      People will always find something negative to hate on… It’s sad.

    • Jen April 29, 2011, 3:38 pm

      Yes! This has been driving me nuts, people on Facebook putting things in their status like, “Seems like a lot of people forgot about this thing called the American Revolution.” UGH. I really don’t think that the British royal family is a threat to American democracy!

      This sums up my thoughts nicely, though:

  • Susan April 29, 2011, 12:16 pm

    I woke up at 2:30 out here in Cali! Watched the wedding, dozed off and then woke up just in time for the kiss. Dozed a bit more, went outside for a walk and then came to work. I’m already feeling it. I’m still kind of iffy on the dress myself, but I think she did a great job on her make-up. I’d be too nervous to do it myself with millions of people watching.

  • Stephanie April 29, 2011, 12:25 pm

    I had to get up at 1:30!! But you better believe I did!! The boys were so darn handsome.

  • Sonia (the Mexigarian) April 29, 2011, 12:27 pm

    I didn’t watch the wedding. I saw clips of it on the news this morning and from what I saw of the dress, it was beautiful. Living out in Cali, I figured I needed my sleep 🙂 Perhaps I’ll watch it with my Mom. She DVRd it. Lol.

    BTW, I heard on the radio that some of William and Kate’s exes were at the wedding and one was dressed in a fire engine red dress? this true?

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey April 29, 2011, 12:42 pm

    The wedding was absolutely gorgeous. I love the look on Allison’s face! Too cute!

  • Lisa April 29, 2011, 12:44 pm

    I didn’t get up early to watch it but I did see it when I got up. She looks beautiful! Classy and understated.

  • R @ Learning As I Chop April 29, 2011, 12:55 pm

    Totally agree about the sleeves. My favorite part! Well, the veil too 🙂

  • Kris April 29, 2011, 1:00 pm

    I had no idea Kate was going to copy my wedding dress … from 1984!!! Incredibly similar. My skirt was a bit less full, and no train, but the tops were almost exactly the same. Mine was not off the rack, but by a seamstress who was able to copy anything — I used Princess Grace of Monaco’s dress as one of my inspirations.

    • Kris April 29, 2011, 1:05 pm

      Just checked — I did have a train, just short one though.

      • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:10 pm

        Picture??? I want to see it!!!!!

        • Kris April 29, 2011, 3:16 pm

          Check your email 🙂

        • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 3:18 pm

          You weren’t kidding! Kate STOLE your dress 🙂

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss April 29, 2011, 1:05 pm

    So cute!! You all really made it a huge event. I love the “tea and biscuits” breakfast!

    Aw, what a fun party and a great breakfast spread! I thought of you this morning because of your British “love” (aka: husband). I haven’t been into the whole royal wedding thing but I’m excited to catch up on the pictures of the dresses and let’s be honest, the hats!

  • Lisa April 29, 2011, 1:18 pm

    Looks like you had a lot of fun!! 🙂

  • Brittney April 29, 2011, 1:27 pm

    I have to admit, I was on the fence about getting up and coming over so early to watch the wedding, but I’m SO GLAD I came, I had a blast watching with you guys! The food, company, and viewing experience was so worth getting up for! Thanks Caitlin!

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 2:11 pm

      Yay I am so glad you came, too!!

  • Megan@Dirty Dishes Daily April 29, 2011, 1:30 pm

    I love the hats. How funky.

    i know book club was a while ago, but in case you did another one, I havent read this yet, but it seems really interested. Tim Ferris was on Rachel Ray today… here is the link to his book The four Hour Body.

    Has anyone read this / what do they think?

    I really wasn’t into the whole Royal Wedding thing, but was happy to have it to watch while on the treadmill this morning. I thought Kate’s dress was timeless – perfect for royalty! I know a bunch of people loved the hats, but I hated them! Well, at least the younger chicks who wore really goofy hats. The big, floppy Kentucky Derby looking hats on the older women were nice.

  • Kiki April 29, 2011, 2:05 pm

    Those hats are AWESOME. I should have made my wedding a hat mandatory wedding

  • Cindy @ The Flipping Couple April 29, 2011, 3:22 pm

    Oh my gosh, you girls are way too cute for that early in the morning!!! : ) Up until yesterday I had zero interest in the royal wedding, but I have to admit that I got suckered into the excitement today. It is a fairytale! I hope they’re both really happy. They certainly have a world that’s happy for them!

    A watch party would have been SO FUN! I got up at 2 am PST and watched for a couple of hours with my mom before catching a few more ZZZZ’s as I had to work this morning!

  • Lucy April 29, 2011, 5:58 pm

    Not to be the downer, but has anyone else heard anything about her recent extreme weight loss? It troubles me that we have to feel like we need to be thin in order to look beautiful on our wedding day…

    • CaitlinHTP April 29, 2011, 6:00 pm

      I heard about that but it was mainly the tabloids that were reporting it, I thought!

      • Lucy April 29, 2011, 10:40 pm

        Also, does your husband have a hot British accent? 🙂

        • CaitlinHTP April 30, 2011, 8:50 am

          hahah yes he does.

  • Jen April 29, 2011, 6:21 pm

    I got up at 5:30 as well to watch and am so glad I did. I was debating on it but decided to honour “family tradition” (my mom got me up early to watch Charles & Diana’s wedding when I was just a wee thing, and I got up early to watch Diana’s funeral, so it would’ve felt wrong to just catch this in reruns). The whole thing was lovely. I loved her dress – very classy and gorgeous – and I was really impressed with her composure. In her shoes, I would’ve been a shaking, sobbing mess, lol. I hope these two make it – they seem like they are truly best friends and really in love.

  • Kate April 29, 2011, 7:36 pm

    Thanks for hosting such a fun viewing party this morning….we had a blast watching it with everyone!

  • maya @ finding balance in tokyo April 30, 2011, 9:30 am

    My friend threw a low-key Wedding Watching Party/potluck dinner, though it was much more conveniently timed here in Tokyo. We started watching live at 5:30 pm on a Friday evening. The wedding itself was at 7 pm, and the kiss was around 9:30 pm. It almost felt like it was scheduled with our convenience in mind. 😀

    There may or may not have been pink princess dresses and tiaras involved.. 😉

  • Jolene ( April 30, 2011, 4:56 pm

    Love the dress, and those crazy hats!
