I CONFESS, . . . I WATCHED THE ROYAL WEDDING

American girls could learn from watching Kate!

Well, what the heck I was up anyway.

Two things made an impression other than the beauty of the event and it was BEAUTIFUL. Pretty clothes and flowers and inspiring messages and of course a stunning couple.

The first curiosity was the HATS. Of course you don’t go inside Westminster Abbey without one, but OMG.

Big and pink and puffy with organza, and feathers and flowers and sparkles, and discs were cruising all over the place. Zillions of huge discs like and invasion of UFO’s. Black discs and blue ones too and mostly worn at a slant with a big tuff of feathers or clusters of giant fabric roses or organza dotted with rhinestones.

One hat looked like the top layer of a pink wedding cake, another like a black pill box with a red band around it and one especially ugly hat cupped both the woman’s face and head and looked like it had a water lily tacked to it.

The queen wore a yellow long coat and matching hat, and of course she was impeccable and Camilla stumbled along like she was 90 years old, but she too was impeccable.

The prize however goes to the two daughters of X princess Fergie. These two were the most dreadful pair at the event. One of them had raccoon eyes ringed in black and perched on her forehead a giant stiff bow. The other girl wore a hat that looked like a stewardess cap from the 60’s worn down on her forehead and topped with a big pile of bright blue feathers.

The second impressive thing about the wedding was the gown and the demeanor of the bride. I watch a lot of weddings because I’m a wedding florist and I see a lot of dresses and a lot of behavior. American girls would be well advised to take a lesson from this lovely, gracious woman. Kate. Always ladylike, restrained, well coifed and perfectly outfitted for the occasion.

Kate wore a gorgeous, modest dress with lace covering her arms and chest in contrast to many girls in America who wear push up bras, low plunging necklines and are practically falling out of their dresses. So many brides seem determined to look "SEXY" and regardless of the size of their bodies and arms many girls seem to want their bodies and arms bare and flapping.

Added to this disturbing effect is the practice by many brides of dancing into the reception area waiving the bridal bouquet over their heads while boobs are bouncing out of their gowns. It seems more like a woman that just bagged a rhino in Africa rather than entered into a serious union with another human being.

I'm just saying what ever happened to the sweet, demure and modest bride in her lovely gown, acting like a lady?

To me they look like vulgar clowns, not pretty sweet brides. I'm hoping that the Royal Wedding will influence many of these young brides and they too will adopt a ladylike demeaner and opt for a wedding gown that is more appropriate.

Oh dear, I'm afraid I have to confess to watching too and don't let them know I told you, but so did the men in the household. It was a beautiful event, set in history but gee those hats, weren't they something to write home about?

It was a fun relief from the rest of the world news.
