what a completely glorious day for London! as expected I watched the service from Hyde Park amongst 200,000 revellers and it really was an amazing atmosphere!

of course the dress was the main focus of the day and Kate didn't disappoint us did she?!

if you haven't already heard, Kate flew the flag for British fashion by wearing Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. she looked totally regal and composed, completely be-fitting of a new princess.

Pippa, as head bridesmaid, almost (very nearly..) outdid the bride herself in a cowl neck long white gown also by Burton for McQueen. I have a feeling that this gown (copies of) will be making many an appearance at weddings across the globe. it really was just gorgeous.
the younger bridesmaids aren't really my thing, but they were cute...

William looked dashing in his scarlet uniform which, as honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards, was a fitting tribute to his title. He also incorporated his Royal Air Force wings and Golden Jubilee medal.

no doubt you will have seen an enormous amount of coverage over the past 24 hours so I won't bore you with the who-was-theres and what-they-were-wearings

so I'll just share my favourite guest outfit of the day- the Beckhams!
how on earth did she keep that pillbox hat on her head?!! maybe it was glued in place?

I did hear that David made a slight faux pas- he wore his OBE on the wrong side..
fyi for anyone who happens to have one- wear it on the left! x

Just to top the day off, Kate re-emerged from Clarence House this evening ready to party at the palace in yet another Sarah Burton dress...

and yet again, Pippa almost upstages her sister and gets my 'best dressed' award for her party gown in emerald green. I love this colour (clearly, considering my own wedding dress was in this shade!), and I like that she's letting her hair down a bit with the plunging neck line ready to dance the night away!
