Aaah, so the Royal Wedding has finally taken place! And wasn’t it fabulous? The main question on my mind (and everyone else’s) was what would Kate wear? I suspected it would be Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and was very pleased when it was confirmed that the dress was McQueen! She definitely made the right choice in choosing a British designer and it was so perfect. Kate looked so elegant and her dress was timeless.
Made from satin and not silk – good choice as silk crushes so easily. The dress has a softness that Sarah Burton has brought to the label but also the structure that the McQueen label is known for. A perfect fit for the Duchess of Cambridge!
Another Alexander McQueen dress which I love but maybe wouldn’t have been right for the Royal Wedding! Perhaps too much leg!
I love the new section on net-a-porter.com, the wedding boutique which has different sections for the bride, mother of the bride and even bridesmaids. The bridal section even has different styles depending on your style, I love the “fashion forward bride” so for women who don’t fancy looking like a giant meringue or who want to look a bit more alternative. These are my favourites;
Preen, £995 – my favourite!
So, the first big wedding of the year has passed but there’s still many more to come but I’m mainly looking forward to the other Kate, Miss Moss’ wedding this summer!
