Happy Ever After


Beautiful, classy and perfect do those simple word sum up a fantastic day.?
As with the rest of the world, I wish the Royal couple a happy ever after.
I can't believe its 30 years since I sat and watched his parents wedding.

So did you sit and watch, take part in a street party, or simply enjoy your Friday in the sun?

After receiving a special candy bag from Elaine and a goodie box of samples and Magazine from Tiets, I think its time for me to pass it on. Thank you girls for your generosity, its lovely to be spoilt by you.

I have a wedding candy bags to send to 4 followers who leave me a comment today.

take care and enjoy your weekend
Karen

Karen, it was a wonderful event and certainly made me proud to be British. William and Kate make such a lovely couple and I hope they have a happy, healthy and long life together. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Caz said...

I agree Karen, I thought she looked stunning and I loved her dress. I never did like Diana's...too fussy and over the top. I think they looked very relaxed and happy...and more importantly in love and comfortable with each other.

It is hard to believe it is 30 years since Charles and Diana wed...lets hope William and Catherine are happier...I am also predicting kids within 2 years!

Kate looked very stunning, and although I'm not religious the ceremony was lovely, made me think back to my own wedding and I spent the rest of the day with a warm glow :)

Paula said...

I agree with you Karen - I was glued to the service & thrilled at the words of the Prayer Book Ceremony. I was struck by the understated elegance of her dress & sheer joy of the couple. As always thanks for all you do.

Those words are PERFECT Karen! Such a beautiful couple and I too cannot believe it is thirty years since I sat and watched his parents wedding! It was late in the evening here in OZ so no street party, but certainly toasted the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, take careX:)

Miria said...

Hi,Karen. I'm Italian and I was at work during the ceremony, but I teach English and I couldn't help watching all the replays and follow ups when I came back lol! William is as old as my son and wish him and lovely Kate - or Catherine is better as Kate reminds me Shakespeare's Shrew a little- all the best! Have a festive weekend, hugs, Miria

chrissy xx said...

Suzi said...

It was a glorious wedding Karen, I had a little tear in my eye because like you I watched his Mum's wedding. She would have been so proud of him and I'm sure she would have loved Catherine. We watched it with your Grandchildren, had tea and cake to celebrate.

Well i am not British, but i am sure like myself those of us around the world who watched Lady Di get married had to watch her sons wedding. I had to POP in to the shops, yeah right! i stood near a HUGE tv screen and took around four hours to the shops and back that would normally take half hour. Love this pic of the happy couple, TFS

Jill said...

hi Karen, we didn't have any street parties where I live but i did enjoy watching them get married and like you I can remember watching Diana and Charles getting wed (I was only 7) thinking she looked like a princess aww, It was strange as my daughter has just turned 6 and she watched it with me and she kept saying one day I'll be a princess like that lol aww bless enjoy the long weekend and your new sugar hugs Jill xx

Crafty Chris said...

wasnt she just the fairytale bride, absolutely gorgeous, and the boys or should I say young men where very handsome, sadly I do remember Diana wedding as I got married the same day and mine didnt work out either, but on a happier note I did it again and am married to the best man ever.

Cindy2 said...

My cat wanted to watch the wedding - she woke me up at 4:00am cst. So, we watched together, both of us snuggled into my big fluffy robe. Lots of tradition there and awesome clothes; Fergie's girls were dressed rather strangely - did you see the hat that looked like reindeer antlers?

Denise and Louise said...

Watched every minute of the wedding - was glued to the telly. Such a happy couple and wonderful ceremony. Thanks for the chance for some candy - have everything crossed. Hugs Denise xx

Claudine said...

I didn't watch the wedding live because in Canada, the wedding festivities started at 4am lol But I did watch the balcony scene live and then watched the highlights of the wedding afterwards.

marion said...

Sometimes a little yummie from friends is just what the doctor orderded ! Enoy the gifts you have received. I saw a very nice couple getting married yesterday on tv. I hope they have a long, strong and loving marriage. Hugs, Marion

Judi said...

Like you, I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding, and can't believe that 30 years have disappeared since Charles wed Diana! How proud she'd have been of her boys yesterday!

Hope you have a GREAT weekend.

Thistleblue said...

It was a lovely wedding, Kate looked absolutely stunning and Wills was very handsome as was his wee brother :-) When Kate was walking down the aisle with her Daddy, Becky, my almost 2 yr old daughter was dancing around the livingroom. I hadn't really planned to watch it, but am glad I did, such a really lovely day.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
hugs

Pamela said...

I watched the ceremony after the fact, since I'm in Canada. It was truly lovely. And yes... seems odd to think it was 30 years ago that we watched his parents' marriage. They are a wonderful couple and I wish them every happiness in the coming years :) Enjoy your weekend too! P.

Kim. said...

What a splendid day it was, I watched the whole thing from early morning to late afternoon and loved every bit of it. I also watched Charles and Diana's wedding 30 years ago and could not agree this was so much more, simply perfect.
Wishing them many long years together and welcoming the change to the monarchy.
Kim xXx

Padster said...

I remember that wedding as well as the ones in between although I only saw her arrive at the Abbey then took advantage of no one being in Tesco to stock up the cupboards :c) I did enjoy having an extra day off lol!

cardmaking bird said...

I totally agree. The wedding was wonderful. Although there was all the pomp and circumstance of a royal wedding, the thing that really stood out for me was how happy and in love they both were. Just perfect. Hugs, Marie xx

Kristin said...

It was a beautiful wedding, and I watched the entire ceremony. Being home alone during such a day was great! :D

Daisychain said...

I work in a nursing home so I watched the wedding there while working and you are right those words sum it up totally. The dresses were so beautiful without being over the top. Let's hope they have a long and happy life together.

Hugs Christine x

jo said...

I wasn't going to watch the Royal Wedding - but found myself sucked in - and really enjoyed it.

D K Crafts said...

The wedding was really lovely. Thought William was really smart and Kate was gorgeous. Diana would have been so proud of him. They make a lovely couple. Donna

weewiccababe said...

I sat and bubbled at the telly for most of the day watching the wedding - am not a Royalist by any stretch of the imagination but I watched his mother and father get married 30 years ago like you and I had to watch our future king and queen get married yesterday too. So sad his mother wasn't there to see him get wed though, she would've been so proud of both her boys - think that's why I kept bubbling actually

Alison said...

I watched with my husband and have to agree with you- perfect. I too watched 30 years ago- I feel old! Had to laugh at my son though, he was at a Sports Camp day and his only grumble about the day was that he went there to get away from the wedding but they put the telly on at lunchtime!

nana of my 3 said...

Yes I like you... first watched Willam's Parents wed,I Got up early both times I am a fairy tale romance follower...Best wishes for the new Couple wishing their fairy tale will last for ever...It was a wonderest Wedding..

Sandra said...

Oh, am I first?

I'm not a huge Royal Fan but loved how they managed to stamp their own thing on the State Wedding - the Dress was fab, loved the trees and the car.
I wish the new Princess Happy Ever After.

Shouldn't be up this late but I've been playing with my new Gorjuss Stamps.
Thanks Funkey Kits

Lisa Lynn said...

How adorable. Best wishes to the couple.

Ying said...

The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate was elegant. Love Kate's dress, she is beautiful. I watched it on tv.

Annelies said...

Unfortunately I missed the biggest part of the wedding, 'cause I had to work. But when I came home I immediately turned on the tele and could see them drive to Buckingham Palace. They looked wonderful! Sunny greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Alex said...

I can't believe it has been 30 years for me either. I can NOT be that old! lol! I absolutely loved it. She looked stunning and they BOTH looked so genuinely happy. It made me all weepy to see.

Suzie Q said...

Tigger a(r)t work said...

It's was a great show :o) and soooo many people on the way to the Buckingham Palace *wow*.

Sheri said...

Being #1 is probably not going to get me a wedding bag but how very cool. First to get something from you and to have it be a wedding bag is so special. I too remember watching his parents wedding. Weren't both ladies spectacular looking?

KJ said...

I got my Gorjuss stamps yesterday, thank you so much for all your efforts in getting them to us, sorry it was such hard work for you & I fully understand your reluctance to offer pre-orders again. I have always ordered with confidence from you & long may it continue :D Loved the wedding & dress, ate too much at BBQ & thoroughly enjoyed the day :D x

Deneen said...

I watched the wedding here in Canada...my hubby was up at 2 am, but I got up later...at 5:30 am and saw the last prayer, and walk down the aisle...I caught the ceremony later. No holiday here, I had to go to work:(

Thanks so much for offering some candy, I follow your blog by email!

Pops x said...

Aww it was a special day, one that dreams are made off, hugs pops x

Hilde Larsen aka. Tindaloo said...

oh my gosh - it was a beautiful wedding :) I think people all over the world enjoyed watching it, as I did, in Norway :)

Christine said...

Wow - 30 years, didn't realise it was that long.
Hope they will be happy :-)

Diane J said...

Gosh I had the most wonderful day on Friday... on the settee at 8am watching the preparations ready for the wedding the service...and didnt move until after the balcony kiss. My lovely husband brought me my breakfast, dinner and endless cups of tea and then he even joined in with my conversations about dresses, hats etc etc (LOL), he was soon 'all wedding out'. Then at 3pm we dressed up in our 'best clothes' and headed off to our family 'Royal Garden Party', where we had a marvelous time with our family... a day I will always remember with fondness xxxx

Trish said...

Hi Karen,
I thoroughly enjoyed my day... I set my alarm to be up good and early and sat glued to the TV taking in all the fashion and spotting celebrities etc. My mum & best friend called in around 12noon and brought lunch with them, so we didn't need to miss anything!!
William looked so handsome and Kate was breath takingly stunning- so elegant- they both look a perfect match and I pray in this day of very short marriages that theirs will endure the test of time.
God Bless them both,
Trish x

Sheila said...

Karen, I cannot believe nobody left you a comment so far - must be the lovely weather or hangover from street parties!! Loved the wedding and like you I couldn't believe the time since his parents - she would have been so proud of him, Sheila:)X

Mau xx said...

Super words to add up a wonderful day, What a gorgeous couple they make :)) Time certainly flies doesn't it... I hate to admit I even saw the Queen's wedding, we had the whole street in as we were the only ones with a TV..all 11" square of it.....lol I felt ever so Posh when I went back to school xx
