I'd love to see the needlework up close. I can't imagine the hours it took to do all that by hand.

I loved her dress! It was elegant and so appropriate for the occasion and the venue. When you look at her you are constantly drawn to her face and not the dress- the way it should be.

Ithought everything about the dress, make-up, etc. was perfect. Simple understated elegance. I thought she would have more sparkle, but so tasteful and classic. At least she won't be crying over her dress as did Princess Diana. She hated her dress.
The cake is so beautiful and elegant too. Incredible work they did on it.
THAT WILL BE $6,000.00 PLEASE. THANK YOU, COME AGAIN.

I'm taking a Lambeth class in July, but I warned my husband NOT to expect that calibre of work from me! icon_redface.gif

I'm probably the only one since everything I'm reading is gushing over her and it. Oh well. I can be solo icon_biggrin.gif




I'm with you...
The dress was ok, but not grand enough...the bottom was heavy, it needed lace or tulle or something instead of all the thick panels.
I didn't like the veil at all, her bouquet was too small, and her hair and makeup wasn't much different than her everyday look.

What the hell was up with all those bizarre hats http://www.people.com/people/package/gallery/0,,20395222_20485864,00.html

The cake, however, exceeded my expectations!

Loved the dress. Very classy. Sometimes less is more.

Re those bizarre hats - obviously Eugenie and Beatrice have not grasped the concept of 'less is more'! icon_confused.gificon_lol.gif

so..maybe it's just the American in me...but, is anyone else bored with the entire cake being fruitcake?

Love the finished piece, tho!! I wonder how many brides are going to come to me with dreams of grandeur. And how many will be upset when I tell them I can't do anything remotely close to that HAHA

Well, you can, but that'll be $$$$$$$$$$ please!

Personally, I would liked to have seen the gumpaste flowers in realistic colours. A little too bland in monochrome for me.

Dress was beautiful, but my didn't Pippa almost steal the show! Both of them are entirely too thin (and Pippa needs to lay off the fake tan), lets hope they ate lots of cake at the reception. I predict we'll hear the patter of tiny feet on the horizon by the autumn icon_wink.gif

Party time! Dresses #2. I want to find out about cutting of the cakes. I really like this newspaper's coverage; big pictures!

It says here that it took Fiona 5 weeks to create the cake (someone else was trying to figure that out in this thread):
