Underwhelmed. Sigh.  HELLO, she’s a PRINCESS today.  That is not a princess dress and that certainly was not a princess veil.  Kinda a let down, not gonna lie.  And yes, the nipple action or pointy boob construction was not flattering when she first walked in.  Wardrobe malfunction, for sure.

i am wondering what people would have said if kate had arrived in a huuuuuuuge dress with a long train and equally long veil,   a massive bouquet and a much more sparklier tiara…..

”Shes not a princess,  who does she think she is? ‘   

she was always gonna be in a no win situation.   she cant do right for doing wrong.  

Kate looked perfect,  regal, normal and beautiful.   why did she have to  ‘bling up’  to look like a movie-star bride.   she is not a celelbrity,  she is a royal princess.  and i think she dressed accordingly.  and given that she is 29, she dressed age appropriately  too.  what a show it would have been if she had turned up in something strapless.  it was a church after all and c’mon lets have a bit of modesty.

all i hear is an American way of thinking that bigger is always better, and how dare she not get the memo?

May I remind you that Kate is British ? And not only British, but marrying into the British monarchy. Gah. The pp that are disappointed; why don’t you learn a little history about a culture quite different than yours before you go spouting off?

@bebefly: While I am definitely on your side with this (I thought her dress was absolutely perfect…I cried from the time I saw her get into the car until well after the ceremony because of how well it suited her and how gorgeous she looked.), you could be a little less harsh in your delivery.  No drama, just remember that people are entitled to their opinions, no matter how wrong they may be ๐Ÿ˜‰  JUST KIDDING on that part!

@bebefly: I’m totally with you, but I am an American who appreciated the understated elegance. Not everyone wants to stick poofs and sparkles onto everything, so it’s really not fair to lump everyone into that category.

I personally absolutly loved her dress.  I wouldn’t change anything about it.  It was completly her.  You could tell my the asbects of the wedding that they wanted it to be small (regardless of the fact that 2 billion people were watching).  They added trees to the church and had small buquets.  All things that would be at a small outdoor wedding.  They took it into their own hands of what they wanted. ๐Ÿ™‚  If only I had that kind of waist line and frame!  Classic, elegant, and above all timeless.

@tntrav44: I tried. Sometimes I’m just very blunt and it comes across worse in text than speech (something to definitely work on). But it’s also been 3 days of nothing but Kate-bashing around here, and I’m frankly tired of it.

@KatyElle: I wasn’t trying to – I was more aiming my comment towards those posters who were really rude about the whole thing. It wasn’t my intention to “lump you all together” although I can definitely see how that could be construed in that way. My apologies.

@bebefly: Very true.  I stayed off Weddingbee until today for that reason.  I didn’t want anyone to ruin my fairytale vision.  I woke up at 4:30 AM to watch the wedding, then I watched the whole thing through two more times on Friday.  I loved EVERYTHING about it!  Although, I do wish they would’ve kissed just a littttle bit longer.  But they’re royal, and the queen was standing 2 feet away, so I get it ๐Ÿ™‚

@MrsNeutrino:

you couldn’t imagine!

 I’m glad I have two dresses though. After working so hard to create my own and it looks nearly identical, I’m kinda bummed. Wanted to be thought of as vintage bringing some GK to my wedding, but now…I think I’ll be getting the “it’s just like Kates.” My Mom gasped at not only that, but I chose LofV’s hahahaha… I guess it will be the year of long sleeves. Oh well, with a month to go. Not much I can do, as my Fiance put it.

The picture floating around with the caption: “yes we’ve brought sleeves back…your welcome” did bring a chuckle on. So I’m glad they’re “back”
