Friday Fancies: Royal Wedding

By now, William and Kate have said "I do" and they are celebrating at Buckingham place.
The wedding of the century is in the books!  I have not been able to watch the wedding, but I have it DVRed and will watch all of it when exams are over.  I will catch snippets throughout the day.   

In honor of the Royal Wedding, Friday Fancies this week is themed for the perfect Royal Wedding outfit when money is not a worry.  Tell {av} what you would don at the wedding of the century.

My wedding of the year is this weekend, too.  One of my "big sisters" in Chi-O is getting married this weekend.  Cate and I lived on the sorority hall during her sophomore year and my freshman year, and then we lived together again in a house with four other girls during my junior year and her senior year.  I am so excited to share in her special day and to see my old roommates.  I have not seen three of them since we moved out.  One moved to D.C. to work for the F.B.I., one went to Austin for work, and the other enrolled in med school.

Cate and Ed started dating during the beginning of her sophomore year, so I have been "with them" since the beginning.  I have seen their love grow through the years and watched their relationship evolve into the promise of a wonderful life together.  I might shed a few tears.  

The wedding will be a wonderful break from studying.  Yet, it might be drama filled.
Let me explain...
My ex-boyfriend is one of the groomsmen.  This will only be the second time I have seen him since we broke up last July and only the like the fourth time I have spoken to him.  Despite my complete distance and ignoring his phone calls for months, his new girlfriend has been anything but nice to me.  All the details are for another post on another day.  Case in point though, the one time I saw them back in February, I said hello and asked how she was...she could not even respond.  All I can say is that I have taken the high rode and have been hospitable.  As you see, I am a little anxious as well.

No matter what I will have a great time.  I will be surrounded by my beautiful, amazing sorority sisters.  We will sing Shades, drink copious amounts of cocktails, and dance the night away.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!



  1. I had such a similar situation about my ex-boyfriend a few years back. I was my best friend's maid of honor and he was a groomsman. It was the first time we had saw each other since I had broken up with him. It had been about a year and half. It was pretty awkward. I had hoped we could become friends, but he isn't interested in that.

    Good luck!!!

  2. Fabulous outfit. Love the color!
    On a side note: I'm a new follower. And my two-sense about the ex: don't worry about him, maybe a bit of awkwardness but, just be yourself, and carry-on because I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time.

  3. Love your Royal Wedding attire, deary! No worries about the weekend! You are going to look FAB and your date is going to be SMOKING! WOO WOO! Get it girl!


  4. I will never understand why some girls insist on being so ugly to each other...

    I hope you have a great weekend and that if you have any interactions with the ex, he at least is pleasant!

    Happy Friday girlie!

  5. That's a great look! Super elegant! :)
    Happy Friday!

  7. what a seriously GORGEOUS outfit, girl! I sure hope everything went just like you hoped at the wedding--and with school. I've been praying for you! not sure if you'll even have time to link up tomorrow for Friday’s Fancies, but I hope you do...I always LOVE your posts. much love! xoxo {av}
