I am very excited to do this post! But first of all, I would like to apologise for not posting anything for ages. Sorry, I have been real busy and haven’t much time to blog. Anyways, back onto the wedding!
Before I talk about Kate’s AMAZING dress, I would like to say congratulations to the couple. I thought the wedding was amazing, the choice of music, hymns, dresses for the bridesmaids, everything was just magnificent I nearly cried! I thought Mrs. Middleton looked stunning in her silvery grey suit and hat and so did HRH the Queen, HRH looked stunning in her pale lemon suit. Although, Camilla was looking a tad frumpy compared to Mrs. Middleton, the pleats did not complement her figure in the slitest bit! Another train wreck was Beatrice and Eugenie; Beatrice was looking grumpy and a bit frumfy and Eugenie was in a dreadful pink suit with a riddiculus hat that looked like a lobster: the pair of them looked like the two ugly stepsisters from Cinderella! Only one more complaint, then I will move onto the subject of the wedding dress, nut first I must say that David Camerons wife did not wear a hat. She was the only lady not wearing a hat, it was disgraceful, she had been told to wear a hat but she wanted to rebel and not wear one, shameful.
Now ‘The Dress!’, All eyes were on Kate was she stepped into her Royles Rolce. Kate’s wedding dress was an ivory gown with lace applique floral detail designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. Made of ivory and white satin gazar, the skirt resembles “an opening flower” with white satin gazar arches and pleats. And adding a personal touch, Kate’s bridal flowers included a flower called the sweet William.
The dress’s beautiful, intricate train measures just two metres 70 centimetres – modest in comparison to many previous royal brides. The train and bodice are decorated with delicate lace applique flowers, handcrafted using the Carrickmacross lace-making technique, which originated in Ireland in the 1820s.
Kate usually wears her hair fully down but she choose a “Demi Chignon” for her wedding day instead. Her tiara – the little known 1936 Cartier “halo” – was her “something borrowed” and was loaned to the bride by The Queen (how nice!). The bride’s earrings were a gift from her parents. They were created by Robinson Pelham and are diamond-set stylised oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the centre inspired by the Middleton family’s new coat of arms. The earrings are the bride’s “something new”. For her “something blue” – a blue ribbon was sewn into the interior of her dress, while her “something old” is the traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship used to create the bridal gown. Kate did her own signature makeup, her signature black smokey eye and light lipstick and a touch of gloss. Catherine, Iw ould just like to say what an amazing person you are!! I hope you have a happy life as the new Dutchess of Cambridge!
