Not being a big fan of the Royals, I can't quite share their enthusiasm, but any excuse for a party is fine by me and I hope everyone has a lovely day. Of course I am looking forward to catching a glimpse of THE DRESS. As someone who sells vintage wedding dresses it is quite an interesting moment as this dress, tipped to be designed by Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, will no doubt have a huge influence on bridal trends for years to come. I think that McQueen is an interesting choice as while the house is known for their stunning, opulent gowns, it is a less conventional choice than I would have expected from a very classically dressed girl like Kate. So we shall wait and see what they have come up with....
In the meantime, I thought I would take a look at some previous royal brides. Kate has quite a lot to live up to!
|The Queen Mother marrying King George VI, quite a modest dress by royal standards, in 1922|
|Princess Diana's insane, OTT mega dress for the showy 1980's|
|Princess Margaret, possibly the most glamorous Royal, looking elegant in 1960|
|The Queen marrying Prince Phillip in 1947. Beautiful lace train|
|Queen Victoria in 1840|
Have a great day everyone!
