The Obligatory Engagement post.

I've been awake since 5am, so as a last desperate attempt to go back to sleep, I am writing a blog post about.. yawn.... Will and Kate's engagement. Ooh, its working.
No pics of them cos frankly, we're all bored of their faces already, but it is a good excuse to look at some pretty pictures of vintage brides.


Did you know until Queen Victoria brides wore blue as a sign of purity, not white?

Honestly though, I think Kate has the figure to pull off something classic and simple, maybe by some nice young British designer like Alice Temperley?Here's a pic of my grandparents getting hitched, yonks ago.

Audrey in Funny Face is a classic, and your grandmother's veil is stunning.

I'm pretty sure Kate will choose something totally snore-worthy, why break the habit of a life-time?

My favourite royal escort has always been Wallis Simpson. She had a face like thunder but what a sense of style!

Queen Victoria also 'invented' the idea of huge wedding cakes I believe. Hers was incredible!
