Much Ado About the Royal Wedding
Apr 29, 2011

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that today, April 29, 2011, is the day that England’s Price William and Kate Middleton were joined in holy matrimony in “the royal wedding.”

I have always been a tomboy, which is perhaps why I’m more interested in watching “Swamp People” than I am in watching hours and hours of media coverage of a wedding of two people I don’t even know…yet I know so many people who have been closely following all of the events leading up to today, and have probably been glued to their TVs for the past several hours. Yes, Kate is a “real life princess,” and yes, it’s one of the most grand nuptials most of us will ever see, but 4 a.m. is pretty dang early to wake up to see a dress (which I liked) that I just as easily Googled when I woke up at 6:30 a.m. Was anyone else dissapointed by her flowers?

Do you even care what’s going on with Kate and William today? And if you do, what was your favorite moment(s) from the royal wedding so far? We asked out Facebook friends and twitter followers, and here’s what they had to say. Have your own thoughts? Comment below!
