Cool website: Explore the Royal Wedding!

Thirty years ago, my grandmother was up before sunrise, dressed to the nines (nails, hair and outfit perfect, she was awesome) and ready to watch the Royal Wedding.

On Friday, I may just have to get up and watch Will & Kate’s wedding in her honor.

However, if you just can’t get enough of it ahead of time, check out The Washington Post‘s interactive site about William and Kate’s pending nuptials. It’s so well-done, with 3-D graphics, panoramas, historical images and video tours. Swoon away!
