Iconic Wedding Dresses: Kate Middleton

This week on the blog, we’re looking back at some of the world’s most iconic wedding dresses that have recently re-emerged on the runways. Who can forget when Kate Middleton married Prince William at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011? Throughout their six-month engagement, Kate’s dress designer was kept a secret. It wasn’t until she walked down the aisle that Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton announced she was behind the custom v-neck, long sleeved wedding gown, which featured a full skirt and almost 7-foot long train. This sought-after classic was inspired by nature and the Victorian age. Details included hand-cut flowers embroidered on the lace and 58 buttons fastened by Rouleau loops on the back of her dress. However, Kate’s dress wasn’t the only one that stole the spotlight. Her younger sister, Pippa, wore a cowl neck, capped-sleeved dress that fitted to her body. Check out our favorite look-a-likes above!

We’ve all seen the wedding (maybe more than once!!).  We oohed and ahhed over the dress (and the second dress!), the incredible earrings, the TWO kisses and of course, Harry!!

Now that the calm has come after the beautiful, beautiful storm I thought I would share the details of baci designer stationery + events’ Royal Wedding Party; hosted at baci’s home office to celebrate the nuptials of Will and Kate with clients, local Northwest Ohio vendors, friends and family!  It all started with custom designed invitations designed and printed by baci designer stationery + events, complete with a gold wax seal.

The toast of the town, London Town this Friday? Presumably, the Royal family will serve Pol Roger, a champagne began in 1849 in Epernay, France, that went on to become the toast of London, Great Britian and the rest of the Continent.

Prince Charles opted for this popular champagne at the seated luncheon at Buckingham Palace for 300 invited guests.

Thirsty they will be, after a morning’s jaunt to Westminister and onto Buckingham Palace!
