Catherine Middleton Wedding Dress suggestions and musings

If you could design a wedding dress for Kate Middleton, what would it be like?

I'd give her a full, flowing skirt (not necessarily sticking out like Diana's) with a nice long train and veil. The neckline would be a scoop neck with a lace overlay embroidered with sequins.

The veil would be attached to the tiara and over her face until after the formalities are over.

Over to you.

(mods, if there's a similar topic on here, my apologies)

I think it's fairly likely that it will have a v neckline, as that seems to be Kate's favorite. It is also quite flattering.

I see her in something close to the body. A silky almost a 30's type feel dress (but not satin) with a long train and even longer veil. I can't see her with the veil over the face until William lifts it to kiss the bride (I think that type of veil is called a "blusher"). That would be too much like Di.

I'm thinking a dress like Mette-Marit's, but with a V-neck instead of square. The fit, showing the figure, yet having a flowing skirt, would seem to suit Catherine's signature look. Please, please someone tell her she shouldn't wear a jacket like Letizia's that overwhelms her frame!

No kiss in the church. It just ain't done.

The part of the veil that covers the bride's face is called a blusher. As for lifting the veil, Diana's was cut off after the formalities were over.

Very nice dress Madame Royale! I really like it!

I'd like to see her in a dress similar to Ivanka Trump's wedding dress. Classic, elegant & timeless.

Naturally, on both accounts.

I should hope Catherine decides to wear her hair as a chignon, and accordingly has a veil of chantilly lace mounted atop of her hair, underneath (or just behind) whichever tiara is chosen.

But Dianas and Sarahs Veil where lifted when they signed the Wedding register out of the eye of the Cameras. Only in Sophie's case it was lifted earlier. Diana was the only who wore the tiara over the Veil in Sarah
s case the tiara was covered by flwers but this was under the Veil and also Sophie had the tiara under the Veil. But perhaps Kate will have no Veil over her face at all.

Oh THAT evening gown That is one of my all time favourite pieces of cinematic couture.

The bodice of either gown is certainly not dissimilar. Well noted, Zonk

I love this silhouette for Kate except I don't care for the train starting at her shoulders. Of course Stephane Rolland isn't British. He did a gorgeous (IMO) grey 50's style dress for Shieka Moza when she visited England with her husband.

Funny that no one is suggesting Catherine Walker. She was Diana's favorite designer and she's British.
I think that Church etiquette will require that she wear a gown with sleeves and a decolletage that's not too open. I think that's why Sophie wore a coat that she probably removed for the reception.

It would be a little difficult for Catherine Walker to design a wedding dress for Catherine Middleton. As she died a few weeks ago. However some designer might use one of her designs as an inspiration, or a starting point.
