Wedding Wednesday: Duchess of Cambridge’s Gown

In 4 days, Prince William and Catherine were married in London and were named the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. So let’s get into the magical dress:


Catherine chose Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (that was not my guess for the designer). Her dress consisted many, many, many pieces of lace. On her sleeves, there were 4 different kinds of flowers. 


I love the shape of the train, it’s so nice. The dress was 2 meters and 70 centimetres or near 8 foot 10 inches. The Train as well had lace on it. The lace was made by the Royal School of Needlework (they didn’t even know that it was the lace for the royal Wedding dress. – They had to change their needle every 30 minutes, and wash their hands I think every hour.)


The back of Catherine’s dress include 58 buttons, a bustle and lace galore!

Under the Dress

Under the dress she had a big skirt of tulle (Tulle gives a puff.)

The bouquet was small (and I don’t like comparing things to Princess Diana but, it was very small compared to Diana’s.) The bouquet included myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth flowers. The shoes were nice too, they were made by McQueen and the lace by the Royal School of Needlework.


The earrings were hand-made for Catherine, the top part was because of the scrolls on the tiara and the acorn is suppose to resemble the Middleton family emblem. The tiara that Catherine wore was the Cartier Halo Scroll Tiara. Catherine wore her hair half-up, half-down.

The only thing I would have liked more was Catherine, used too much Grace, and Margaret inspired dress then just Catherine Elizabeth Middleton style.
