I haven't seen these dress designs before. These are much more "royal" IMO.

Top designers reveal how Kate could look on her big day

I really like #6-7! It just seems so "Kate"

I like 6-7, too. I think it would really suit Kate, and it has a classic elegance, too. I would lose some of that veil though. Kate is very narrow across the hips and a figure-hugging style like 1-2 would accentuate that characteristic and wouldn't suit her at all, IMO.

Heh.. I wasn't even looking at the veils. I don't like the veil that's with #6-7 either and think Kate will go with something with more simplicity. Something like #1 or #11's veil? I think the central focus on whatever veil Kate does choose will be something that will compliment whatever tiara she will wear and not be so "flouncy" as to detract from that.

I have a question I'm confused does Kate have to cover her arms at church is that a rule or can she go strapless as well cause CTV was debating this a few days ago and I got a bit confused.

We haven't seen a royal bride with bare arms that I can recall. The shortest sleeves I can recall were Lady Helen Taylor's, and she's a great-granddaughter of George V and a cousin-once-removed of the Queen. Lady Diana showed up in elbow-length sleeves, and that's the shortest I can remember in fairly recent years at that senior level.

I like 4 the best. Very elegant and classy, and with that neckline she would be stunning with a pretty diamond necklace. It just screams "Kate" to me.

She probably could if she insisted, although I expect the Queen wouldn't be best pleased!

But why would she do that, when everybody wears strapless?
It's gotten old!
She should go for something different, imo.

Also, she has to take the setting into account. For the Abbey, she needs a dress that will fit her surroundings. If it's too plain, it will sort of disappear, I think.

The HuffPost blogger keeps swearing that a young, fairly unknown female designer, who has designed for the Middletons before, is designing Kate's dress. Does anyone know a designer who fits this description?

i don't think even Gieves and Hawkes can make anything out of the RAF uniform; it needs a redesign - quick - before 29 April!!!

I don't think they would be able to redesign it before April 29th. Wouldn't a military uniform change affect that entire branch of the service? I think what's going to happen with this tailor is that they will make the regulation uniform for Prince William but specifically tailor it to him.

That is what I would expect - a properly tailored uniform that fits perfectly - rather than an off the rack uniform or one that he has worn a few times.

I suspect most royal houses will be invited and will attend.

Apart from the "has designed for the Middleton's before" HM In house team still fits the bill. It would also account for all the secrecy & no-one having seen Kate going for a fitting anywhere or a designer entering the Palace for a private fitting or going to the Middleton's place in Berkshire for said fitting.

Also, why do we have to put up with all this comment from the American "Gutter Press"? Why would any of William & Kate's circle talk to them at all let alone give them important information.

These aren't "fairly unknown" designers. They also aren't designs (other than Lepley's) which I would fathom anyone wearing to a formal church wedding, much less a Royal Wedding. Pretty hideous designs IMO, and not anything I could see Kate wearing.

I can answer that: $$$$$!
(A big payoff, along with a promise not to name the source, will loosen tongues, as the tabloids know very well).
