As Lady Diana got out of the carriage I remember everyone was upset that her dress was wrinkled. Well DUH??? You stuff her into that glass case literally in all that dress, I mean the veil was 26ft long. I admit I watched a little POP-UP TLC Royal history show last night for a couple hours. I remembered it was the longest Royal Train ever at 25ft , but really just found out how long the veil was last night- Thanks TLC. I know the only thing I saw when I was eight & watching was a "Princess", even though she wasn't yet until after the vows called Princess. I loved all the Pomp & Circumstance . I thought she must be the luckiest girl on earth to get her Prince. We had no idea then what we all know now, it was a Lie. So glad we had no idea so I could live out the magical fairytale that day. I now know it probably influenced my choices for my Wedding day to my handsome Soldier.
If Paul & I could have driven away in a carriage pulled with horses I so would have on our wedding day. Kind of hard to do in a January snow storm of the year. Here is a quick picture of us getting out of our limo at Opryland Hotel for our reception- see any similarities to me getting my "Prince" ?
Yes, I snagged my Prince/Soldier & am super excited to watch Kate marry her's on Friday.
I haven't decided if I will DVR the wedding, I am HUGE fan of DVR now days. I am not as young as I use to be & have no girls interested in watching the wedding with me. I may not be watching this time LIVE like I did as an excited eight year old girl who still believed in storybook weddings, fairytale Prince & Princesses ,& happily ever after,but I WILL be watching. It will still appear magical to that little girl inside of me I know. I also know I am so lucky that I still get to get dressed up 15 years after marrying my Prince. I still get butterflies when he is in his uniform and we are heading out for the evening. I know that my Happily Ever After is happening right now & I am so thankful for that.
The love of my life still looking so handsome after all this time.
Do you see the similarities......I had my own Fairytale
