Royal Wedding Party


when it comes to the royal wedding, i am a girl obsessed. it stems from a long love for all things british and that i knew prince william and catherine middleton's wedding would be spectacular. i had to invite my closest girlfriends over to watch! last night we all got dressed up, had wine, cucumber sandwiches, cupcakes and cake pops from cakelicious, and watched all the live coverage from that morning. there aren't many things i like more than wearing a dress and giant hair piece. sharon of posh veils hand made me this one of a kind piece just for my royal wedding party. isn't it perfect?!

i loved catherine and pippa middleton's dresses and of course prince william and prince harry looked handsome as always. all the royal wedding coverage reminded me of my first trip to england in 2009. i happened to arrive the day before the trooping the colour at buckingham palace. none other than the royal studs themselves stood on the balcony, so close to where i was standing! and to think, i missed my one and only chance to meet prince harry and make him fall in love with me. rats!

Hello Prince Harry!

  5. You look beautiful, I love your headpiece! Just to let you know though, I never eat cucumber sandwiches or drink tea out of little china cups. I drink my tea out of a big starbucks mug hahaa :P

  8. I love that you had a royal party! You look fantastic, and your tea cups are adorable! I celebrated by wearing my pajamas and tearing up a bit by myself, but I suppose we all celebrate in our own ways :)

  11. I admit it... I didn't pay the slightest bit of attention to the Royal Wedding. I think I'm still a little burnt out from my own last September (and can't escape the sense I might have slightly failed my mom since I wasn't the one prince William married, in spite of all her hoping!) But I definitely could have gotten into it if there was a party with fancy headwear and cupcakes! Your hairpiece is stunning- way prettier than anything actually seen at the Royal Wedding, I think. I'm officially inspired. I don't know where I'll wear one, but I must have one of my own :)
    xox,

  25. Organizing your own royal wedding viewing party--what a fun idea! It's too bad you never got to make Prince Harry fall head over heels for you, but on the plus side, Adam must be relieved he still has you all to himself lol.
