The Anticipated Royal Wedding and the Bride’s Gown!

Just in case you missed the most spectacular event of our time, we are speaking of the Royal wedding of Duke William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge, who just had their royal ceremony and we are here to tell you it was truly breathtaking!!  The anticipation of what Kate Middleton was going to wear has been the talk ever since the couple announced their engagement. Much speculation over who was going to design her gown and many where thinking that she would maybe go more traditional, but Kate went with one of the most magnificent, Creative and Awe-Inspiring Designers of our time! None other than Alexander McQueen Creative Designer Sarah Burton who has truly been busy! She didn’t only Design the Brides gown she also Designed Kate Middleton’s sister/Maid of Honors gown Pippa!!


Sarah Burton really took our breath away with this gown it had just the right details with the lace sleeves and V-neckline of the gown was just spot on. It was kind of a vintage look  making you think of Grace Kelly’s gown and how it showed her very tiny waistline and the small details from the beading and the buttons just really looked magnificent on Kate’s figure.   Here is your first look at Kate Middleton’s Wedding gown by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen:

We know it is truly just beautiful and then we know that Kate isn’t overly decadent with things and we loved the tiara that she wore its the 1936 Catier Halo Tiara just fitted perfectly for this new era Duchess!

Her jewelry was just perfect with her gown it wasn’t over or understated, very classic and modern.  We don’t want to forget about her maid-of-honor Pippa who is also her sister looked stunning in her Sarah Burton gown and it was just simplistic but elegant and had the small details of Kate’s wedding gown. The cowl neckline and the beading and buttons where just something that should don a Duchess Lady in Waiting:

The Royal Wedding had many different little elements to it that gave it the air of a more modern royal family and even the Abbey having beautiful live tress which gave an element of a park like setting. This is a new generation of Royalty and we saw from the night before with Prince Harry and William going out to shake hands and to thank those who where on the street and telling them they hope they all had coats, because it was going to be a rather chilly night. 

The Prince looked just as handsome as ever wearing his uniform as well as Prince Harry who wore his uniform who stood as his brothers Best-man in the Royal wedding:

Queen Elizabeth looked lovely as always in her yellow dress by Angela Kelly and always wearing such a stunning hat, as well as Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwell looked rather stunning she also wore yellow.

Carol Middleton the mother of Kate Duchess of Cambridge, looked just regal and always with the air of class.  We know just what Kate will look like as she ages because she is such a replica of her beautiful mother who wore a blue dress and a hat by Designer Philip Tracy who did most of the hats that the ladies in attendance wore.  Carol Middleton was escorted to the Royal Wedding by her son James, Kate’s youngest brother who also read the scripture from Romans at the wedding:

We have to tell you the one moment that we truly loved was when the Royal couple was standing before the priest and Prince William was going to take his first look at his soon to be wife was just something special, because the pair shared a very sweet look at each other and a laugh; and it was a moment that you could see he still wanted to protect and make sure she (Kate) was okay and Kate in turn was looking so lovingly into Williams eyes and face assuring him she was doing very well:

I know you all have been waiting to find out what celebrities where in attendance of the Royal Wedding! We saw of course David and Victoria Beckham which by the way she never smiled once on the carpet going into the Abbey but, she looked amazing as well as David himself! David had on a fabulous tuxedo by World Renowned Designer Ralph Lauren his Purple Label which you know I was surprised being that as you all know Beckham was the spokes model for Armani last year.  Anyway Victoria wore one of her own Designs and looked quite beautiful in her Navy dress that had this detailing in the back and didn’t show off her baby bump as you know the couple is expecting their third child and reportedly its a girl.  Victoria’s hair was pulled back in a simple ponytail and the fedora that she wore was just elegant!! Style wise this couple knocked it out the park as always!!

Other famous faces that where in attendance was Guy Richie you know Madonna’s ex-hubby we know right now she is kicking herself for not being with him as his and 1.. Then there was also the Mayor of London Boras Johnson, Ben Fogle who is a air personality in England and his wife, Princess Diana’s Brother who is William and Harrys’ uncle was there with his fiancé who by the way is pregnant. (Sorry no photos of these ones)

Now we also saw Sir Elton John and his mate David Furnish who sat front row and they both looked rather dapper and loved their tuxedos!!

We also saw Prince Andrews daughters you know Fergie’s children which, are the cousins of Prince William and Harry and the ladies looked just beautiful in their dresses and hats love the style of Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice:

I know they look good and their dresses are so fashion forward!! These ladies didn’t take on their mothers style let’s be so grateful!!

We have to say in all honesty, as weddings go this one was just as memorable as Duke (a little odd not to say, instead of Prince) Williams mother and father’s wedding (the late Princess Dianna and Prince Charles).  I think people will be talking about this wedding for a long time and in some way it endeared this couple to everyone because, they know of Kate’s background and life style (not having a royal lineage) prior to her marrying William this is a true a modern day love story!!
