Don't you think Wills & Kate were very accommodating to have their wedding the same weekend as my bridal book signing in Atlanta? (tee-hee!) With all the wonderful people I met, as well as former customers and old friends that I saw, the event would have been great fun and a success. However, because of the added interest in the royal wedding, it became a wonderfully happy "happening."
Many people who came by had watched the live broadcast of the wedding -- or at least had seen a recap -- but all were very engaged in some facet of the glorious proceedings: the grand rituals and elegant ceremony; the beautiful bride and her attendants; the outfits of the guests and "those" hats! And everyone had a glowing comment about the breathtakingly poised and calm Kate. When someone asked, "Do you think Kate read your book?" Before I could respond, another person answered, "If not, she acted like she had 'studied' with Cornelia!"
ps: When you order your copy, you get Free Gifts fit for a princess! Enjoy.
End of the Fairy-Tale Bride (the companion blog to my upcoming book) to read reports from the royal wedding and other tid-bits about the mythology of weddings and Princess Diana's legacy for all women.
