Pink Cameo Brooch & A Royal Pink Wedding

Due to this morning's romantic and very ROYAL wedding of Kate and William (how many of you got up or stayed up late to watch it?).... I'm feeling a bit regal. (I have been talking with a highly accentuated British accent since this morning, just ask Bebe! She must think her Mummy has gone MAD...)




Here is my only pink find for the week... a pink cameo brooch available in my shop. It is a bit stuffy, no? Is the woman in the cameo wearing a big hat like the kind worn in London today? Wow... they were amazing!



But after seeing Kate's gown I admit, I was a little disappointed. It did indeed look similar to Princess Grace's, which is of course lovely. I guess I was well, hoping for more.


So for Pink Saturday I am showing some pink wedding gowns!!!! Fluffy & big!




( this photo and the one above are from bridalcookie.com)



My favorite is this one above...


But ruffles are always fun...



And the lace over the white skirt is enchanting!






But before you go, don't forget to take along your pink beaded clutch bag ...also available in my shop in the wedding category.




Check out the rest of the blogs for Pink Saturday.


I wonder how many wedding themes


there will be???? Hmmm....

Love the brooch and the purse! I wasn't quite expecting the dress either but after getting a good look, I actually like it except for the neckline. I like understated elegance. You are too funny walking around with an accent! lol
Have a great weekend!

You are showing us some gorgeous gowns this week. I think each one is eye candy and couldn't pick a favorite. I didn't watch the wedding, been baby sitting my grand daughters because we have a new baby brother in the family.
Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Jillian, the brooch is awesome. I remember whe we got married & I had a pink cake with pink bells on top, ohhhh, what a lot of chatter over that PINK color. I'd have worn a pink gorn if they had existed back then, for sure.

Beautiful share.

Happy beautiful PS weekend ~

All the pink gowns you shared are very pretty. However, it is not the gown that makes a marriage in my opinion.

Love the pink ruffle dress. Wish I was daring enough to wear something like that. Oh well, it's fun to look at. Happy PS!

Jillian,
I've seen some of the wedding (no, I didn't get up at 4am to see it!)and I liked her gown. The rules say her arms and shoulders have to be covered so I think she did quite well using lace over the strapless look! Good Pink Saturday!

I loved Kate's wedding dress but the pink dresses you chose are pretty too. I love the ruffled dress in the second picture. Happy Pink Saturday!

I love your cameo! I think it is divine! Thank you for sharing today! The pinks are prefectly beautiful! Anne

Lorraine said...

I love the pink wedding dresses! My fave is the same as yours... Happy Pink Saturday!

Pat said...

The wedding brooch is nice - Kate's dress was fabulous!

dana said...

I love brooches...and yours is wonderful!!! I have one that belonged to an old friend of my mom's.

I just watched snippets of the wedding. They were a gorgeous young couple and seemed to be oozing happiness. Her dress DID look like P. Grace's...hadn't made that connection. I wasn't crazy about the veil...it looked heavy and flat to me, but she certainly pulled it off.

Keep practicing your British accent and you may have a career ahead of you in TV!! :)

Thanks for your positive remarks about my made in the USA post. Great old vintage items made elsewhere do not count....they are still highly loved! :)

Happy PS. L, Dana

NanE said...

Happy PS! Yes, I got up early to watch and was transfixed on the TV for every little detail. I know a lot of the critics were saying why is everyone going gaga but personally, I think it was a wonderful thing. At first, I was a little disappointed with her gown. I was expecting so much more. But after watching her walk down the isle, and in the carriage ride, I think it was perfect. Now, I can't imagine her in a big poufy dress. Happy PS, Nan

NanE said...

I forgot to say,
The Queen look beautiful in her Yellow ensemble.
Kates Sister Pippa looked drop dead gorgeous!
Prince Harry cracked me up!
David Beckham looked HOT!
Andrew's girls looked like a train wreck! Oh my gosh, those were the worst ensembles there!

Cottage Touch said...

Beautiful..Happy Pink Saturday.

Aunt Snow said...

I missed the wedding for unexpected reasons, but I got to see lots of photos later in the day. I loved all the fabulous hats!!

I thought Kate's gown was lovely, as was her sisters!

Your brooch is exquisite! I don't think its stuffy - it would be elegant at the color of a white shirt...or maybe a black shirt!

Happy PInk Saturday!

Cindy Lew's Studio said...

Good Morning,

I think the brooch was a perfect pink find. My mother used to love to wear those on her dress when I was young. How beautiful........ and the dresses are all so beautiful.

Have wonderful day and blessed week!!
Warm Regards, CindyLew

Nancy said...

I love the pink clutch, what an amazing find. Hope you are having a wonderful spring.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Dru said...

All of these dresses are just stunningly beautiful! I did indulge in the Royal Wedding a bit and I loved how lovely, understated, and regal Kate looked, the way Harry just had to turn around, look and give that little smile of his, all the tributes to Diana - so many things to enjoy. Happy Pink Saturday to you and thank you for sharing the lovely gowns with us...

Gail said...

Oh my such beautiful dresses, I am not sure I can pick a favorite. I like them all. Beautiful broach and purse, too.
Happy PS

Olivia said...

Oh, what a pretty pink cameo! I think if I did it over again I would wear a pink gown! :) Thank you for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday.
Hugs,
Olivia

Roselle said...

Love the clutch!
I watched the wedding. I couldn't put my finger on what was *wrong (IMO) and then I realized it was the tiara/veil. I think if the tiara had more height or the veil had more poof around her head, it wouldn't have all seemed so plain. I did love her dress but my eye was drawn to her head. Then again, I'm just a lowly commoner so what do I know ;)
Happy PS

mercedes scott said...

Love your PS post and pics... those gowns are gorgeous! And yes, I agree with you on Kate's gown... very simple; almost too simple. Maybe I just expected too much, after Prince Di's gown and veil! It was still a very lovely wedding and they seem to be truly in love. :)

FRENCH LAUNDRY said...

Wow! Those pink wedding gowns are amazing. Thanks for a big ol dose of pretty.

Hugs,
Judy

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Lisa said...

Those pink gowns are fabulous, love the clutch too!

I do think the lady on the cameo is wearing an awesome hat. :)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Sarah said...

Gorgeous cameo! I did get up to watch the wedding from 1:00-4:30 am. It was so great seeing a couple truly in love! ;) I have to say that I really did love her dress...I thought it was neat that it reminded us all of Princess Grace.

HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

Oh, I loved her dress. I thought it was elegant. But those ridiculous hats everyone was wearing? Not me! LOL
