In no certain order….

Gigantic boutonnières are a no. Please note how dapper and sophisticated Mr. Middleton looks with his diminutive boutonniere.

Sleeves are always stunning, and surprisingly original, given how popular the strapless white wedding gown is.

Wedding parties look fabulous in white.

You don’t always have to wear your hair up, despite what your mother might say. And, by your mother, I mean my mother. ; )

Classic always wins: green and white flowers, lily of the valley, white wedding shoes, weddings with decorum, and on and on…you get the picture.

And, other things, for which I don’t have pictures.

*Don’t rush your reading! If James Middleton can deliver a reading in front of the entire world without rushing, so too can you!

*Be on time! British punctuality warms my heart.

*Simplicity is elegance.

*Don’t raise your glass when people toast to you. Did you note that the Queen did not taking part in singing “God Save the Queen?” That’s because it was being sung to her.

    Great comments as usual, Courtney. The new princess is a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional. Extremely elegant and tasteful. Sleeves are so back!

    I love this Courtney! I was impressed by James Middleton’s reading also. Pippa looked just as stunning as Kate in my opinion. Both of their dresses were stunning!
