I can't even think about that bouquet of flowers with the card that read "Mummy" without tearing up. Ugh.

Choir Nerd moment: I loved loved LOVED that Ubi Caritas the choir sang. And the piece John Rutter was commissioned to write. Those were both beautiful.

I'd forgotten about that.

Exactly...I am feeling that the lily of the valley bouquet was was a tribute to Diana in a discreet way....anyone who watched the funeral of Diana will remember that beautiful lily of the valley on her casket. I immediately associated it with Diana...but then again, I am a florist trust me...that bouqet was gorgeous in its, simplicity...I loved it

Ugh yes that pink hat especially was a travesty

I thought that the Archbishop and the man who did the last speech at the abbey had great speaking voices. It felt like you were watching a movie with those theatre-trained old British actors or something.

Celebrated the nuptials by drinking a jug of sangria at a Spanish bar, eating Chinese and then going to a pub to see a band, and even this indie, dodgy pub had the wedding on the telly in the front bar. I liked the dress. And indoor trees. There should be more of it. And noone looks good in canary yellow, reigning monarch or not

Oh and my mother's convinced that Victoria Beckham's baby is at risk of birth defects cos she wore 14 inch heels....

that pink hat looks like a weird toilet seat, the top part is what you sit on, the lid's on her head.

Did I read/hear somewhere that the crazy hats are called "Fascinators" or something?

yeah, they are.

something that amused me about them is that they're designed by philip treacy. they're finally showing the last season of project runway on tv here and this week was a challenge where they design an outfit around...a philip treacy hat.

It is gorgeous in its simplicity-there was also sweet william in it. I guess I was thinking of Diana's bouquet, it was so large and cascading..and you just expect the bouquet to be so big because it's a royal wedding. I like that she was true to what she wanted. Pippa also had lily of the valley in her hair.

I was surprised that Pippa wore white/ivory whatever it really was-and that the dress was so slinky. Now people are saying she should date Harry- that would definitely be some family "social climbing". I don't think Harry is ready to get married any time soon.

I was surprised she wore white too. I was reminded of Diana when I first saw Will and Harry step into the car. So bittersweet. The choir was amazing. I love that Kate looked so classic and not over the top. I would have had Pippa in a turtleneck dress in a dark colour if she was my sister!

It did appear as if she was trying to "compete" even if she wasn't-I guess Kate is just very secure. Kate probably wanted to wear something more slinky but had to be more conservative. Don't think The Queen thought much of the slinky dress with the bit of cleavage showing-or the disco balls in Buckingham Palace. If Pippa really had disco balls for that party. The Queen left the palace so she didn't have to see it anyway.

Her reception dress-Temperley London



And the shoes she wore with it-I love those shoes, especially the butterflies



Kate's reception dress-another Alexander McQueen/Sarah Burton
