Oh, Let's Just Compare




The church I got married in Sept. 4, 1971




The church my daughter got married in Oct. 4, 2003









The church Kate and William got married in April 29, 2011











My wedding










My Daughter's wedding










William and Kate's wedding









We used our own car at our wedding 1970 Chevrolet Caprice (ugly now, didn't seem like it was in 1970)




The limo at my daughter's wedding





                                              Kate and William get a carriage for their wedding




William and Kates Wedding cost an estimated costs are being reported as somewhere between $20 Million and $70 Million.  BUT what a lovely beautiful wedding with an estimated 2 billion people watching.


Neither my wedding or my daughter's wedding had an estimated cost between $20 Million and $70 Million.  BUT both were beautiful days with a lot of dear friends and family watching.

Weddings are nice no matter how big, or small.

I have to agree. Though I didn't get up to watch the live festivities, I did look at pictures of the event. Kate looked beautiful, and they both looked very happy! I definitely wish them loads of love and laughter...they'll probably need more than most for all they'll be confronted with.

I didn't get up to watch it either. I caught most of it later off the DVR. Ah, to be young and in love (heavy emphasis on the young part) and I,too, wish them the best. I would think it would be hard to be in the world's spot light but they seem to handle it well, thus far.

I am a sucker for weddings! Such an optimistic time in a person's life.

I didn't get up either .... blimey at this rate we could form a splinter group! They did look proper fairytale though.

Mind you Cheryl, yours and your daughter's pictures looked awesome too! Nice one dahlink!

I didn't get up to watch either, Cheryl :). I find that weddings lose their charm beyond a certain degree of grandeur> This would be a good example. A better would be Celine Dion's. The whole royalty thing mystifies me, too.

Hi Annie, It did all look so grand, didn't it? Celebrations are fun whatever the event but this one also had the added factor of romance. I can't think of a "fun" event in this country that would have thousands of people in the streets. (I will have to think about that??)

Hi Bud, I only watched part of the wedding but what made it rather interesting is the fact that this couple seem so genuinely in love. I was one of those that didn't get on board the Diana and Charles weddding. They just seemed nearly distant from each other. But it is hard to relate to the scale of something like those royal weddings. (which was sort of my point with the "average wedding on a budget" style of shindig) I think you hit the nail on the head. Charm isn't a word to describe as much as GRAND.
I surprised myself at how much I found myself going "oh what a pretty bride!) I was not going into it very positively with all the pre-wedding overload of media.
And now they can move on to some other story. Enough, now.

Hubby and I were talking this morning on the "don't really understand monarchies" this morning. With that being said in the last couple of decades, I am getting more unable to understand our form of government.
