Wanderlust Wednesday: The Royal Wedding

I was so glad that I got to be in London for the royal wedding.  It was so much fun! A couple of girls from my group were crazy.  They went to Buckingham Palace at midnight the night before and waited eleven hours to see Kate and Will ride by.  They were really close to all the action and made some awesome British friends that I became friends with as well! 


^^We didn't want to be in the huge crowds but still get the experience, so 8 of us and myself went across the street to Hyde Park to watch it.^^




^^There were huge screens set up.^^



^^And lots of people...^^



^^Who had lots of character...^^




^^And wanted to be brides....^^



^^And of course there were women in traditional British hats!^^



^^Everyone clapped and cheered and waved their flags when Will and Kate said "I will" during the ceremony. They also cheered when Kate and the Queen came on screen for the first time on their way to the church. You can kind of see them waving their flags.^^



^^I tried to get lots of pictures of the ceremony, but my camera wasn't cooperating with taking a picture of a screen. But the wedding was so nice and Kate looked so beautiful! I loved her dress.  I also think that the couple looked really relaxed and calm.^^




^^This is my favorite picture that I took. Kate looked so beautiful!^^



^^I can't believe they dated for seven years before they got engaged. I barely have had the patience to date Taran for a year.^^


^^In stores all around, they had replica rings.  I had to get one.  I still have it too!^^ 






^^My friends and I at Hyde Park.^^



^^My congratulations to the Bride and Groom picture.^^



^^I got a little tired walking back to our apartment.^^

After the ceremony, thousands of people went to Buckingham to see Will and Kate come out onto the balcony for  their first kiss.  But we went back to the apartment instead and watched it on the TV.  Crowds. Not my thing.

What would you have done?  Would you have gone to Buckingham Palace and waited all night long or gone to Hyde Park like I did?

xoxo, Lauren

  1. Amazing you were in London for the royal wedding, and I am obsessed with the ring. I made my boyfriend at the time buy me a gorgeous sapphire ring but I somehow lost it soon after we broke up...which was sad but appropriate I suppose.
