Catherine Middleton was just lovely, wouldn't you agree? Her dress, which immediately reminded us of Grace Kelly's bridal gown, was a modern classic.
I must admit I was a bit surprised by the bridal bouquet; catching the first glimpse, I thought, with its small size, it must be for an attendant. The bouquet, designed by Shane Connolly, was a fragrant collection of flowers wired into a shield shape. Primarily lily of the valley, hyacinths (seen in the lower center), myrtle foliage, sweet William and ivy were also included.
The attendants' flowers reflected Catherine's bouquet and consisted of ivy and lily of the valley hair flowers and bouquets of lily of the valley, ivy and sweet William.
The choice of seasonal flowers was influenced by their traditional significance to both families. With the lily of the valley, they were sure to smell heavenly!
Well, what did you think?
