fancy pants

In celebration of Kate and Will's Big Royal Wedding, I thought it was a great excuse to whip out the wedding dress and give it a night out.

Of course, I haven't actually tried it on since I was married 10 years ago. Let's just say that it was a bit of a reality check. I had to hitch it up to fit around my waist and waddled around in it just moments before my departure to our monthly Food Club Royal Wedding Celebration, but then when it came to actually getting into the car, I realised it was going to be a bit tricky. And then after arriving at Wedding Destination (Julie's house), it didn't take long for me to remember that I hadn't allowed room in my dress for eating.

So, after a night of shallow breathing (and undoing my back zipper a little bit more), I made it through the night. Yes, I shed a tear or two because Kate walking down the aisle and William telling her she looked beautiful is that romantic, and relishing in the beautiful choir music (wasn't it awesome?). I even sang along to the hymns. Overall, it was a fabulous night. The girls (also dressed in clothes fit for a wedding) while giggling and commenting their way throughout the whole night. Which flew by very quickly, I might add.

And while I was thinking about how quick the ceremony was, it took me back to my wedding day. The bridesmaid's gowns, the giant lillies in the pine trees, those amazing bouquets, the handsome groom, the stinking hot weather... oh, and the wedding dress that fit much, much better!

Nothing like a royal wedding to remind you that you, too, were a princess for a day in your life (more of our wedding photographs here).

Did the Royal Wedding remind you of your wedding vows and your big day? Did you wear your wedding dress or something equally as fancy while watching the Royal Wedding?
