It was an early morning, but worth it! The Royal Wedding was an amazing affair. The sheer number (and spirit) of people involved was quite a site.
Kate’s Dress was beautiful. It was a classic gown and… it had sleeves! Bridal gowns have been sleeveless for a while now and this might lead us back into the world of sleeves. An informal poll done by The Today Show showed that 74% of respondents liked the dress. Personally I thought it was a very good and traditional choice. Although there was some expectation of something more modern, tradition stands the test of time and that is even more important for a future queen.
Details of the Gown and Accessories were released by Clarence House seconds after Kate stepped out of the car. “Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing. Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress.”
She wore a beautiful diamond Cartier tiara that was borrowed by the queen. The halo tiara was made by Cartier in 1937 and was originally purchased for The Queen Mother who presented it to (then princess) Elizabeth on her 18th birthday. She also wore diamond earrings that were given to her from her family.
One thing that stood out was her Maid of Honor (Kate Middleton’s sister), who wore white. There were many questions on the color choice on twitter. Personally, I thought it looked wonderful! The Royal Wedding did not have any other bridesmaids so the Maid of Honor looked beautiful in the same color of the bride. I do wonder if that will start a new wedding trend.
