This ceremony was different. From the gospel singers to the pastor who spoke So passionately. If they hadn't lost my invitation in the mail, I would've enjoyed being there. Haha! I'm feeling sleepy right now.

Ha! Thanks for starting a thread! I'm glad I'm not the only one watching. I just stayed up all night and am watching for a second time. I loved it. Especially the American priest making all those stuffy royals uncomfortable! :D That might have been the first time they sat through a church service where they priest quoted MLK. I loved Meghan's sly smile through his sermon.
I thought the gown was perfect, she was gorgeous (although that one strand off hair in her face drove me crazy!) and he looked so handsome in his uniform. That dress had a little Arthurian vibe, I thought. Very romantic, but also modern. The veil was spectacular. I loved the moment when she took Charles' arm as she came down and aisle and when Harry thanked his father. The little ones were so precious and that one page's face as they were about to enter the church was a hoot.
As a fan of Suits, I loved seeing the cast there looking fabulous. Gina Torres (Jessica) and Sarah Rafferty (Donna) looked particularly spectacular, as they always do on the show. Gabriel Macht proved once again that he can WEAR A SUIT. Abigail Spencer looked darling too. I usually think Troian Bellisario (Patrick J. Adams' gf) looks fantastic, but her outfit was sort of blah and literally beige. Ick.
The commentators exclaimed that Amal Clooney seemed to bring her own light. It was that freaking yellow dress!
I wondered if the Queen picked that color so people could see her in the pictures. She's done that in the past and it always makes me laugh.
My favorite dress/outfit was Kitty Spencer in that fabulous green and floral number. Just stunning!
The music was lovely, although "Stand By Me" felt a bit cliche. Loved the choir, but wish it was a different song. At least it wasn't "Imagine," which gets rolled out far too frequently. That cellist was otherwordly. I cannot believe he's only 19!
I wonder how long we have to wait for them to do a balcony wave....or are they not doing that?
All the cracks about Victoria Beckham's sourpuss had me in stitches.
I thought Amals dress was fugly! Mustard, ugh Loved seeing Fergie Twitter was funny about how long loooong Curry went on for..the Royal's got the giggles.lol Meghan's dress was nice, a tad underwhelming, but pretty. Charles looked dashing!
The BBC commentator has NO idea who Serena Williams is married to. Pronounced his last name (which is Ohanian), "Oh-ee-an" - it's pronounced "oh-HAY-knee-an" and he's a big fat hairy deal in the tech world - the guy co-founded reddit.
I liked the cut of Amal's dress, but that color looked like bile. Maybe she CAN wear that color, but SHOULD she? Should anyone?
Oprah was wearing a different outfit than she brought with her. It looked too white, so they had to get something pdq..she looked okay, you don't want to upstage the bride, whoever you are. It's nice Meghans mum is friends with Oprah! I hope Meghan did curtsy to the queen... (I'd have though Harry would have slowed her down and whispered to her if she'd forgotten)...
I woke up around 7ish so the wedding had already started, I watched on CBS and it was lovely. Afterwards I watched the BBC America preshow and the beginning I hadn't seen. I watched some on E but I cant stand Gulianna so I changed it. I am obsessed with everything...it was so moving...an American mixed divorcee into the royal family now is so exciting!
I will be watching the Will Ferrell/Molly Shannon take on things tonight when it comes back on HBO, I'm looking forward to that!

We do know the Queen is a dog lover and that she just lost her last corgi that was descended from her original corgi. AND we know that Meghan and the Queen bonded over their love of dogs. It would be cool to know that a dog that was rescued from the streets ended up riding to a royal wedding with the Queen! I seriously love that one of the Queen's dogs is named Vulcan.
The Duke of Edinburgh looked rather frail. I mean, is HE nearly 97, so I guess that's to be expected. Plus, he just had surgery. I was happy to see him up and about. I love Matt Smith's story about meeting William, who was told MS would be playing his grandfather in The Crown. William's response? "LEGEND. The man's an absolute legend." LOL
Other brides should take note of Meghan's jewelry. Less is more! Especially with the earrings. Quit making yourselves look like chandeliers AND taking the focus away from your face! Of course, with that tiara (!!!), you don't need anything else, do you!?
I've seen some call her dress "plain," but I found it simple and elegant and, of course, beautifully cut. It's Givenchy, after all!
