I agree that her sister's dress did look a bit like a wedding dress itself, but it was lovely. Usually bridesmaid's dresses are a slightly different colour, or they might be the same colour as the wedding dress ie white,cream, ivory, whatever, but have a coloured detail on them, either a sash (as someone suggested) or flowers, but it looks like they were going for an elegant, understated look.

I agree with SPB that they are a good-looking family! I didn't even know they had a brother until today.

I missed the bit with the sports car first time round, and saw it on the evening news. Nice touch.

[quote=""LoveHistory""]Sorry Divia, I got you mixed up with SonjaMarie. Though you did tell Ken to kiss off. ;)

That link about the dress has the wrong tiara listed as well. I wonder how long it will take everyone in the media to figure out the mistake.[/quote]

Yeah, that site says "UPDATE: And the Scroll Tiara wins! And we now call it the Halo Tiara. More info and updates to come later..."

Everyone is just confuzzled!

lol. This is true. :)

[quote=""SonjaMarie""]Oh I'm sure they're coming! And copies will be available and tons of brides will be wearing the dress! And copies of the tiara as well!

I hope it sets a trend with no more sleeveless dresses. I know they are all the rage but I'm not into them.

Hey ken, kiss off. I can think whatever I want. I didnt like the white. I thought the dress was nice the color tacky. I'm entitled to my opinion just as you. So there ya go.[/quote]

OK! If you can't say the 'f' word, that's your problem! Continue to be as miserable and disagreeable as you usually are! BTW, You actually said that you thought that Pippa's dress was 'offensive!'

I just thank Heaven that I don't know you!!

Oh, Ken, how you do amuse me. Perhaps you should put me on ignore. That might help solve some of your problems. :)


OK, found a bigger image. I like it but I still like the other one better. I'm glad she didn't go big with the tiara.

Please people, if you have a problem with someone please but them on ignore and you won't have to see their messages any more. This is a nice and friendly forum, usually, and we'd like to keep it that way. Thank you.

Takes Mod hat off.

Just absolutely lovely! I hope their children don't have the hair loss problem that plagues the Windsor men!

Agreed. But Harry has a full head of hair.
