I'm terribly excited for the royal wedding in a few hours. It'll be a peace of history in the making we're watching! In fact if it wasn't for royals we wouldn't have weddings as we know them today. It was Queen Victoria who popularized the traditional white wedding we know today. Before that women would wear dresses of all colors, even black, because it was more practical, and the dress could be worn again later. A white dress though could be worn only once. After she set the trend though it became so popular that most don't even remember that brides haven't been wearing white for as long as they've been having weddings. Its really quite fascinating.
