#RoyalWedding #PrinceHarryandMegan #WeddingDress #MeganMarkle
There is something about Royal Weddings that fascinates me and I guess billions of others. The first one I remember watching was of Prince Charles and Princess Diana as a child. Somehow I expect Royalty to put on a show like this. There is so much of the fairy tale and the pomp and pageantry. But what we saw on Saturday was something quite different and somehow much better. There was such a relaxed tone to everything and though there was tradition there was diversity and an embracing of two different worlds and it was beautiful. But most importantly there was a show of real love for once. Simple unmasked joy and happiness. This is what weddings are supposed to be despite the fragility of the institution of marriage in the 21st century.
Like all weddings the thing that everyone awaits is the dress of the bride. And as always people have mixed reactions but I think on the whole everyone agrees that what Meghan wore was simply stunning!!
What I LOVED about the whole look was the fact that it seemed a extension of her usual style. Since her engagement we have seen her in fabulous outfits but despite protocol she always manages to put together something that is very proper, chic yet sexy. The wedding dress was just that. Its simplicity set off her natural beauty and great figure to perfection. The veil added all the drama and romance and her Prince simply said ” You look amazing, I am so lucky!” *faints*. I also love the fact that is felt so “not trying so hard” like you would expect her to be pressured into. Considering the frenzy with Kate’s dress etc. There was bound to be comparisons and expectations to outdo. But the simplicity of it outshone everything else. In whatever angle you look the dress is pure sophistication, elegance and a study in understatement. Her hair and jewelry was just right too.
I come from a country where wedding dressing is always so OTT and I have always admired the simplicity of western weddings, the celebration of naturalness. I loved that her face was almost bare. Her natural beauty shone through.
Although I was bowled over by the wedding dress what I loved was the sassy Stella McCartney one she changed into for the evening function. She wore one stunning ring, her hair in her trademark done- undone chignon, With Prince Harry in a tuxedo and THAT Jaguar E-type (Swoooooooooon) was such a James Bond-ish finish to the superb day. So stylish, timelss and classy.
The whole thing felt so real. It had love, romance, modernity and just the right amount of sexiness.
