Congratulations Prince William and Princess Kate!

Congratulations Prince William and Princess Kate!   I remember watching the royal wedding of Prince William's parents and am saddened that Princess Diana was not there today to see the marriage ceremony of her eldest son.  Kate looked as elegant as Princess Diana looked on her wedding day almost 30 years ago.

I've just learned of a 22-page etiquette book that was sent to guests of the Royal wedding.  Surely there should have been a page 23 that included specific hat etiquette and a hat-limiting height for women's hats.  And unless your name is Lady Gaga, you shouldn't be wearing any hats like these:

Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice and Their Hideous Hats!

Hats like these not only took away from the beauty of these gorgeous girls, they make me think of "The Emperor's New Clothes."  Who told those girls it was okay to go out in public wearing those???  Just because a designer has a famous reputation, doesn't necessarily mean what they design looks good.  These hats also make me think about what wonderful table centerpieces these hats would make, as would this Philip Treacy, worn by Sarah Jessica .  I could decorate an entire room around Sarah's "hat."

I do like the idea of an etiquette book to be sent with wedding invitations - one that would not only include etiquette but also directions.  I once went to grab my invitation as I was walking out the door to attend a wedding, only to find the couple had not included directions or the address of the church!  It was a wedding two states away.  I can't remember how we even found the church!  When we arrived, we were very overdressed.  My husband was in a suit and I in a dressy wedding-suitable dress.  The other guests were dressed in Dockers and casual, office-type dresses.  I have to admit, it would have been nice to have a "play-book" that included directions and suggested attire.
