I love weddings.
I have never witnessed a wedding that I haven't cried.
I've snuck into weddings that I was not invited to. If your wedding was in Hawaii or outside the Lincoln Park Zoo, I might be in your photos as I was intrigued (and possibly crying).
When else do you have all your family and friends together to celebrate new beginnings, hope and love? I know some of you are rolling your eyes, but happy occasions of this magnitude are hard to come by these days.
I do adore the dress, flowers, food, music and details. Yet, I have been to some of the simplest weddings with paper plates and a CD Player and really what matters is the devotion between the bride and the groom.
Obviously, I cannot wait for The Royal Wedding. It has been talked about way too much for way too long, and I am conflicted on the enormity of the press, paparazzi and collector's items.
I am most interested in the Prince and his bride demonstrate their commitment as a somewhat normal pair. When all the glitz, glamour and television cameras are turned off, these two are left to grow a life together.
I hope to catch a glimpse of The Queen, Prince Charles and not-so-little-anymore Harry. I do feel real sadness for the groom who lost his doting mother at such a young age. Can you imagine being married without your mother? And worse, having the entire world watching?
Will you be watching The Royal Wedding? I don't know William. I don't know Kate. But, I cannot wait for their wedding!
