Did You Watch the Royal Wedding?

Susanne here, with my teacup full of Earl Grey, ready to dish about Saturday's royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St. George's Chapel.

Back in 1981, I woke up at 2 am to watch Lady Diana Spencer marry Prince Charles. I've never forgotten the experience of me and my mom, bleary-eyed and donned in our nightgowns, watching TV in the middle of the night. I was young and thought the entire thing magical.
Naturally, I watched Prince Andrew marry Fergie, too, but we had a VCR by then and we recorded it (no getting up in the middle of the night that time). When Will married Kate a few years ago, we set the DVR and recorded that, too.
Now that it's Harry's turn, I thought I might stay up a little for the early coverage (starting at 1 am my time). Or getting up early to watch the wedding live--around 4 am my time zone--but since I had a commitment out of town that day and I'd be driving, I knew I'd need my sleep.

It's a bummer not to have watched the wedding live, and to have participated in the fellowship of live-tweeting etc, but I am at an age where sleep wins out every time.
I woke up and looked on my phone right away to see what The Dress looked like and read some initial first impressions.
What about you? Did you get up early to watch?
What did you think of The Wedding Dress?
Did you feel sorry for Meghan with all of the family drama surrounding her big day (like her father staging photos for the paparazzi)?
Which hat/fascinator was your favorite?
Anything else strike you?
