My Wedding Weekend

Sigh. It's official, I have a girl crush on Kate Middleton.
I so, totally, did not mean to stay up to watch the Royal Wedding. I didn't. 4am Pacific Time? Noooo. The night after staying out all night with the Broke Ass Bride Brigade, after seeing Bridesmaids (which was hysterical, BTW) Nope. And then it hit me - That's 1am EST...and I have an east coast cable feed. So, there I was. And I loved every single minute of it.

From a wedding planner's point of view, it was flawless. The bride was supposed to arrive at the Cathedral at 11am, and her car pulled up exactly as the clock tower struck. Everything was on time and spot on. No wardrobe malfunctions, no mis-pronounced names, and even the kids behaved (at least until the photos were taken). The "herding cats" factor must have been insane, we're talking Secret Service levels - the groom gets two watchers, the bride gets three, something like that. However many people were needed to pull it off, they did a fantastic job. I hope someone bought the wedding planner a few rounds of drinks at the end of the night!

I was talking to my friend Jen from B&G Photography the next day about the couple themselves, and how comfortable they were with each other. Even with literally billions of people watching, and being shoved from point A to point B, they were, well, William and Kate. Clearly on the same page, clearly friends, clearly not just loving each other but liking each other. We can tell. It wasn't her wedding, it wasn't his wedding, it was their wedding.

The rest of my weekend was all about the flowers - Enchanted Florist for my July and November brides, and The Flower Garden for another July Bride. My big push is coming up soon, and it's time to dot the i's and cross the t's and give my brides their own perfect wedding days. Stay tuned.

See you at the end of the aisle,
