Prince William and Ms. Catherine Middleton
Stunning dress! Simply elegantly beautiful, regal. Love the dress so much... If only I had a chance to wear such beautiful dress like that.. ;) Of course, with a necessary modification to suit the Islamic modesty..
The dress was made by a personal collaboration between the bride and her designer, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
The veil, made of ivory silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers, is held in place by a 1936 Cartier tiara, lent to Ms. Middleton by the Queen. (It was bought for her mother by the Duke of York and presented to Queen Elizabeth on her 18th birthday.) Ms. Middleton’s earrings—shaped like oak leaves with a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the center—are by Robinson Pelham. The shoes are also by McQueen.”
On her head, Catherine wore a Cartier Halo Tiara lent by the Queen. It carried the nuance of simplicity, regalia, and family meaning.
The bouquet was designed by Shane Connolly, and each flower in the bouquet carried a meaning. The flowers' meanings are:
|Prince William and Princess Catherine|
Hope they will live happily ever after..
A bit flashback to the time before the wedding, back in December 2010, some Designers sketched their suggestions for Chaterine Middleton's wedding dress:
|Frida Giannini, Gucci|
|Peter Copping, Nina Ricci|
|Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, Valentino|
Now, we finally find out which designer Princess Chaterine has chosen to collaborate with for her wedding dress... :)
