Why I Got Sucked Into The Royal Wedding
Quite honestly, I could have cared less about the Royal Wedding. I didn't watch any of the specials. I didn't get into the hype.
I confess. I was intrigued.
There was no way on God's green earth that I was going to get up at 3:00am to watch the coverage, but I knew I wanted to see the wedding so I set my DVR. After fast forwarding through TWO HOURS of boring blah blah blah coverage we FINALLY get to see the bride emerge. I'm so glad I didn't wake up in the middle of the night for this.
Here's the reason for my intrigue. I have watched every wedding show known to man from A Wedding Story to Bridezillas to Platinum Weddings to Say Yes to the Dress (I could go on...). Not to mention I have this weird obsession with princess movies (The Princess Diaries, The Prince and I are a couple examples). Talk about the most over the top wedding ever. How could I not watch the Royal Wedding? I wanted to see her dress, I wanted to see the Prince (even though I don't find him the least bit attractive). Westminster Abby? Wow. Just wow. I kind of wish the Bishop had combed his hair for the occasion though. Overall, it is a total fairy tale wedding and it was my duty to watch at least some of it given my wedding obsession.
My final thought? William and Kate have been together for the better part of 10 years- I'm guessing it was shit or get off the pot time for him. It was about time he made an honest woman out of her. The romantic in me wants desperately to believe that this marriage will last but the cynic in me gives it 10 years tops. I sincerely hope that after all this ridiculous hype that they will be able to stay together.
