Blue Monday - Royal Wedding

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants and wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

Please leave me a comment after you link in. I will visit you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This past Friday the world experienced an exciting event.

Kate Middleton and Prince William were married April 29th.

Remember how beautiful she looked in her blue engagement dress? William also chose to wear a blue suit.




Here's a close-up of that gorgeous sapphire blue engagement ring.





Did you see the wedding? I did! Yep, I got up at 4 am.

I noticed plenty of Blue.

Carole Middleton, the mother of the bride, wore Sky Blue.





Camilla, the wife of Prince Charles, father of the groom, wore a soft shade of Blue.





Best man Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, wore Aqua Blue.





Victoria Beckham wore a Navy Blue outfit.





Why, even the groom wore a bit of Blue.





Here's my pick for the best use of color: Royal Blue.
Isn't long-term friend of Prince William, socialite, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson stunning?




Happy Blue Monday!

Vinni said...

The Royal wedding - what a huge fuss. In this day and age I'm surprised that the UK still is so upbeat about Kings and Queens.

Happy Blue Monday to you

Dorincard said...

Pretty women in blue dresses...
Women in pretty, blue dresses...
Women who think that men really care how well those women look dressed, in blue or otherwise...
Illusions, delusions...:)
Happy Blue Monday, Abbottabad and all!

barbarah said...

Very nice collection of blues there! The news commentators I watched called Camilla's and Mrs. Middleton's dresses powder blue. I wondered if they coordinated that.

Candy said...

royal blue for a royal wedding...I hope they live happily ever after.
Blue Blessings ;-)

Annesphamily said...

Great blues Sally! Love them all and truly loved that royal wedding! Today it seems our government thinks we have had enough fun and now back to their business of scaring America! My hope is in the Lord and I am having a blue Monday today! Hugs Anne

LV said...

I did not watch the wedding. That time of the morning is just when I am sleeping good. Sallay, you did the Royal proud with your pretty blue presentation. It appears the fellows have different taste in their ladies.

bj said...

I watched and loved every single bit of this beautiful wedding. :)
Thanks so much for hosting, dear Sally.

Poppy said...

I totally watched the wedding. It only happens once each generation and I wished I could have watched it from beginning to end.

Joy said...

Perfect post. I wish this couple all the best. They seem so in love and I hope the media shows them more respect then they did Lady Diana. Happy Blue Monday!

The wedding was definitely something to see! Kate looked absolutely STUNNING! Some of those hats they showed looked like something from outer space! YIKES!

bj said...

Now, Sally girl...I KNOW I didn't have MUCH blues today...a little in the books...the blue chairs in the background. I just don't have much blue other than my dishes so I have to link with you if I have even a *speck* of blue somewhere. :)))
hugs, bj

Rose said...

My favorite in this list of blues goes to Camilla.

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

I loved all of the royal wedding "blues." Posted about the wedding on my blog, too!
