After the 29th of April 2011, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton will be known as her Royal Highness Princess of Whales!
The most anticipated wedding ever. The wedding that will be talked about for years to come. The DRESS that will be talked about FOREVER!
While everyone wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day, Kate will actually be a real princess.Kate has some huge shoes to fill in the dress department compared to the royals before her. Her choice of dress will be judged by millions of people as she steps out of the car to walk down the isle at Westminster Abbey. It will also be produced by the time she makes it to her groom. Designers are on standby to make replicas of the soon-to-be famous wedding gown of the year.
In Royal wedding past there have been some pretty interesting gowns. We can start off with Princess Elizabeth. Sr Norman Hartnell, a famous British designer was the one responsible for this gown. Embellished with thousands of seed pearls and white beads it made quite the statement in her time.
Princess Margaret chose the same famous designer Norman Hartnell. Her wedding was the first to be televised with over 300 million viewers. She went with a not so traditional approach with her gown other than her sister Princess Elizabeth.
Princess Marie Chantal wore a Valentino wedding gown that took over 25 different seamstresses to create.
Princess Matte-Marit wore a Ove Harder designed gown. Since this is a more recent wedding you can kind of imagine the look Kate might pick. The fit and fabric are a more modern look for a princess bride.
Princess Diana wore the most famous wedding gown of all time. Designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel. Hand crafted with over 10,000 pearls and a 25 foot long train that no one will forget. It took 40 yards of ivory silk taffeta and antique lace. Diana's dress was just as much of a secret as Kate's. Round the clock security personnel guarded the dress without a chance of anyone seeing it. As a precaution, if the wedding dress design leaked another was on standby.
So now with only hours to go before Kate Middleton is officially a princess the question still stands. What will she wear?? After reading countless blogs, news articles, and magazines I've come to the conclusion no one REALLY knows.
I do know that there are several suspected designers:Sophie Cranston, Victoria Beckam, Alexander McQueen,Daniella Issa Helayel,Bruce Oldfield, or Phillipa Lepley. I do not think Kate will choose anything like Diana's gown. The dress will show off Kate's personal style. Something tighter fitting and more modern in a satin fabric. It is said that the dress will be long sleeved (maybe lace). The train is one thing that cannot be forgotten. Kate's not quite 25 feet, but supposedly 10 foot long.
Reports say she is wearing her hair down with loose curls nothing too different than her normal look. She is also wearing pearl and diamond earrings along with other jewels borrowed by the Queen herself. In no time and millions of viewers Kate Middleton will reveal the wedding dress of the decade at one of the most famous weddings of all time!!
