Kate Middleton to have three wedding dresses? - Telegraph

Kate Middleton to have three wedding dresses?

The Royal bride has reportedly commissioned three dresses for the big day, with two as 'back-ups' in case her chosen gown gets leaked - and Jasper Conran is the latest designer in the frame.

Three? Is that all? She'll be stuffed if all three were leaked!!! Seriously though, I doubt sensible Kate would have three designed - better off having it made inside palace walls with a guard and stout lock on the door to prevent a suspicious looking cleaner constantly dusting the keyhole!

And also, How would the other designers feel if their dresses didn't make the cut. ouch. Interesting that British Vogue didn't use a McQueen at that photo shoot......

It's a shame she has to have "back-up" dresses at all. I wish people would just respect their privacy enough to at least not leak out a wedding dress photo!

Absolutely. Personally, I think there is one dress and one designer and that the whole process has been set up from beginning to end to ensure no leaks are possible. To start off with the less people involved in the design and making of the thing the better. Is it possible that their could just be the designer and one seamstress involved or would more be needed?

I believe that for the last reception she'll change dresses, so if we catch that arrival we'll see 2 of those. Maybe she order 2 options for the wedding gown, just in case of a leak.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that seamstresses at McQueen's head office have been arriving unusually early.

If she's doing the 3 different designers thing this proves why. There are people out there "watching". Whoever breaks the news will get the scoop of the year.
As much as I want to see the dress I also don't want to see it till April 29th.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed too, her dress should remain a secret (and hopefully pleasant surprise) until April 29th.

Coincidentally, CP Mette-Marit and Princess Mabel's dresses are my two ugliest (or least pretty, whichever phrase is appropriate) wedding dresses to date.
MM's was much too simple and Mabel's doesn't need explanation imo.

I am curious to see what Catherine will be wearing but I am not keeping my hopes up. I have a pretty awaiting attitude.

Kate doesn't have great style so I'm not putting money on her wearing something really beautiful. But I'm hoping she goes all out for this one day. I'm hoping she'll surprise me.

Yes, MM's dress was too simple for me, but I think it suited her perfectly.
I think Kate's dress will be simple as well, based on her current fashion, but hopefully not as simple as MM. I definately don't see her in a full ballgown type of dress, or anything with too much design or decoration. She'll play it safe, like she has been all along.

The only dress, between the CP that I really liked was Maxima's. all the other, along with the hair weren't my cup of tea.

I'm still hoping for some lace. Feminine and ageless, IMO.

Everyone differs in opinion but I really like her style though I am hoping for a few more daring pieces when she officially becomes a princess. That being said I am always disappointed....well not always, but usually...generally....whatever disappointed with the choice of royal wedding dresses as of late (by late I mean last 10 or so years). I love detailing and embroidery and some don't even have that which is a little discouraging, but we'll see. Hopefully, I will be more than pleasantly surprising.

IMHO, Less is more, that's her and she's not a phony..

It is what it is..

Why should she do all frills , lace and glitz if that's not her?
