The Royal Wedding… from my perspective

Everything about it was right

I just had to put my two cents into the Royal Wedding commentary. And my first impression is about, of course, the dress. And I think all the brides of the world can take something important away from this.

Obviously Kate could have any dress she wanted, and given the pomp and pageantry of the event, I was pleasantly surprised to see it’s simple elegance. The same was true of her bouquet and hair. I’ve seen fancier bouquets locally. Women, remember, you will have to hold that thing! And she wore her hair down, in a simple fashion, and looked like herself.

While it may seem ridiculous to comment on the restrain and taste of the event, but putting it in perspective, considering what it could have been, the entire ceremony was tasteful and meaningful. The couple showed they to have a sense of perspective and did not let the magnitude of the event overshadow their own sense of self.  Quite an accomplishment!

Fantasizing for a moment – had I officiated the wedding ceremony, what would I have done? Aside from religious rituals and most importantly the exchange of vow and rings, I can image creating a ritual symbolizing their role in the world. I would have liked something for just the two of them also (perhaps a wine sharing ceremony?) and another representing their place in society, in a humble way. Perhaps they could have added pebbles or flowers into a larger container, showing them to be part of something bigger?
