What I'm Loving Wednesday - Royal Wedding Style

I'm linking up today with Jamie for "What I'm Loving Wednesday!"  

So, I must admit, this week I am asbolutely loving all of the coverage and excitement about the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton.  I think they are such a beautiful couple and seem so happy.  It's got me thinking what I would have to have if it were my wedding day again - styles have changed SO much in just three short years that the look would be entirely different.  While I won't be up at 4am to watch the coverage (or will I??), I will be recording it so that I can watch the whole thing!!  So for this Wednesdays, "What I'm loving Wednesday" I'm sharing everything wedding that I'm loving:

the bride:
J Crew now makes wedding dresses and I just love their line.  My bridesmaids dresses were from J Crew but at the time they didn't have any wedding gowns.  However, while looking over their site a few days, I eyed this beauty of a gown that I just love!

And, I highly recommend an up-do on the wedding day because I was SO hot and having my hair off my neck totally helped - so I just adore this up-do that I found at theknot.com:

the bridesmaid's dress:
Here is the bridesmaid dress (also from J Crew) that I just think is adorable and I love the grey-blue color!
the flowers:
For the bridal bouquet and a smaller version for the bridesmaids, I just love these lily of the valley flowers. They are so simple yet elegant - drool...courtesy of theknot.com

And here are some beautiful centerpiece ideas I spotted on theknot.com
Love these peonies...
And I just think this is adorable for chair/pew decorations:
the food:
I love the presentation of appetizers and because I would rather eat 10 small meals during the day then 3 big ones - I love heavy appetizers and stations for weddings.

the cake:
I found this cake on theknot.com and I just loved its simple yet playful style.  The cake is one of my favorite parts of any wedding (hello, sweet tooth)

While looking at the cakes, I also found this awesome little idea.  Instead of tossing the bouquet, serve each of your single friends a mini cake like the one pictured below(one of which has a ring inside it).  Whoever ends up with the cake with the ring in it is said to be the next to marry.

So, there's a sneak peak into all things wedding that I'm loving right now in honor of the royal wedding!!

it's so much more enjoyable looking at the fun wedding planning stuff when you dont have to stress out about putting it all into your big day!

Love JCrew's wedding collection! I remember lusting over it a few years ago when planning my own wedding.

You can design my renewal of vows any day! Gorgeous pics! My 15 year anniversary is this summer wouldn't be so awesome to get to do it all over again? I am pretty sure my taste now would be VERY different than when I was 18!
