I retract some of the statements in a couple of my posts last week regarding the British Royal Wedding. I decided to watch to see exactly what type of ceremony the British Monarchy would put on for Prince William and Kate Middleton. Since the day’s event was scheduled to begin at 5 am EDT, I spent the entire evening awake in order to avoid oversleeping and missing out on the wedding. Moments after tuning in to the BBC, I saw a processional of ultraluxe and luxe vehicles making their way to Westminster Abby, many of them of British heritage. I knew then that the wedding was going to be worth watching.
The BBC then turned its attention to the celebrities in attendance. I am really not interested in celebrities, or the “who’s who.” I must say, however, that I was quite pleased with the attire the ladies donned for the Royal Wedding.
Sidenote, for the people who take issue with the hats the women wore to the wedding, and their supposed ridiculousness / flamboyance, I bet most of you fall into the Forever 21, frumpy dress, ballerina flats / flip-flops-as-fashionable-attire demographic. I can’t count how many formal events I’ve been to where I’ve seen a woman wearing something entirely inappropriate. Your ‘F Me’ pumps that you wear out to the club, and your $6 flip-flops that you wear to Starbucks, work, your parents’ backyard party, your Softball team photo, and when you simply want to be cute, are entirely inappropriate.
The ladies demonstrated proper dress protocol for such an event. Besides, many of the guests have no chance at becoming royalty, so why shouldn’t they be a bit flamboyant for such a rare occasion and grab a bit of spotlight? TFG tips his hat to the lovely female guests in attendance for the Royal Wedding.
Back to the point of this. Weddings are typically the fantasy of women. TFG has decided, however, to revisit the Royal Wedding in a pictorial from a gent’s perspective. After all, what gent wouldn’t want legacy fighter and bomber aircraft doing a flyover, shortly after saying ‘I do’ to his princess?
