More details about the dress emerged as we are now finally in measure to say that the Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen wedding dress was made of French Chantilly lace and English Cluny Lace for the bodice as for the skirt and the 2m70 train – the pattern emulates a blooming flower in ivory and white satin gazar.

The Cartier tiara was lent by the Queen herself and Kate wore it proudly on her cascading curled hair, underneath that gorgeous ivory tulle veil with hand – embroidered glowers. As for the earrings, the sole jewelry pieces worn by Kate other than her tiara, biensur, were Robinson Pelham diamond drop earrings as gifted by her parents. (1, 2, 3)

Hi Kpriss! I read it later if you don’t mind: what a beautiful bride in a great dress! I love the dress and applauded spontaneous when Kate stepped out the car. But oh my god what are those English stiff upper lip: I fell asleep but woke up right on time for the balcony scene. Well they kissed, not that passioned but for English standards twice? Okay then! :D
But what a medieval service….poor Wills and Kate. They looked so relieved it was over ;) I hope they dance and drink all night long with the Queen’s blessings.

And dear Trix and my lovely Ellington: hahah, there were lots of people to cheer the couple on. Something else: 1984 when Diana and Charles married under the fist of Iron Lady Thatcher the recession in England was far more worse. People have forgotten? Anyway, this was a beautiful bride in a great dress and I make deep bow for Sarah Burton since she managed to make me tear up only that one moment when I saw how beautiful Kate looked in that dress. And now I’m gonna take nap. Zzzzzzzzzzzz……

Girl that’s fast I just logged the tv off….zzzzzzzzzzzz…….I wish this lovely couple a long and happily married life and may it last forever and blessed. :) ;)

It was wonderful! Tally ho pip pip!
Just one correction – Catherine is not the Princess of Wales but the Duchess of Cambridge. Prince Charles is the Prince of Wales & will pass this title on to William when he becomes king.

I watched the clips of the wedding and Kate and William looked lovely and happy!
Her dress was stunning and reminded me a tad of Princess Grace of Monaco’s dress.
Sarah Burton did a beautiful dress for Kate and she did the McQueen label/brand proud!
But Kate is not the Princess of Wales, she is now The Duchess of Cambridge and HRH Princess William.
The only thing that made me sad was that Diana was not there to see her handsome son get married, and her other handsome son be his brother’s best man. :(

Oh I see that you corrected her title Kpriss! :)

Also I wanted to say that Kate’s sister Pippa and the wee flower girls looked lovely too! :)

Oh, lol I realised I forgot to correct it but I see it’s done and just as almost everyone else I saw the resemblance to Grace Kelly’s wedding’s dress too. But I was so tired…..it was such a looooooooong show but I have enjoyed it.

Pippa and the flower girls looked lovely for sure. So elegant and sweet at the same time. The Middletons are a very handsome family. Kate’s brother said a bible text in the church he did a great job and looked good as his sisters.

It was also lovely to see them together in a open old timer Aston Martin with ‘Just Wed ‘ and balloons leaving to change their clothes. So happy and relieved the official part was over I guess. I would love to be fly at wall in the Buckingham Palace now…..:D

Again: chapeau Kpriss you we’re so fast with your photos and a story. :)
