Yes, I assume there are guidelines, as well - but to what degree they are formalized (written down, etc.) or communicated in the usual way we communicate with our friends and family, I do not know.

I know few people who shop for a wedding dress all by themselves; even if they are miles apart they send photos back and forth to family, etc.

I am envisioning something quite regal for Kate, and she must surely have her own idea of what that means.

You are right, it is awful. For anyone. The few previous to that all look like nightgowns. I am sure it will be better than those.

this dress looks like something out of "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding". argh!
The person who get's do design this wedding dress is ina particular position. It will create a huge amount of publicity, but If not done properly a very bad one.

I'm picturing that the dress will have a A shape, with lace around her arms. Not very cup-caky too avoid comparison with Dianna's. I'm a sucker for Elie Saab design's, they are truly special.
This one with longer sleeves would be beautiful option

I just hope it won't be too minimalistic, Oh God please.

That dress is very pretty! I can see her in something like this. And I agree...I hope she doesn't pick this day to be daring with something minimalist or over the top.

Depends,if she has a tiara and beautiful jewels on, I'd prefer it being more minimal. The last thing she needs is a whole lot of bling on the dress and then the jewels.

I like the dress you posted though, beautiful, even with that length sleeve.

All of her photos for some reason seem profile photos but this is the best I could find, blocked a bit by her bouquet.

Ivanka's dress is beautiful, but it's hard to imagine something like that coming from the Alexander McQueen house (and there seem to be more and more clues that's who is doing The Dress).

Personally I think that the rumours are coming from McQueen. Great publicity for them even when it is proven not to be true. Lets face it, they are a fashion house struggling for survival after the death of their founder, they have a new designer who has to prove she can be as "cutting edge" as he was and that they can retain the client base.

I still think that HM "In House" design team is doing the dress. This would be why there have been no sightings of a designer or their staff visiting either Buckingham Palace or St James. Also, there have been no sightings of Catherine visiting the premises of a designer or of anyone going to either her parent's home or to Anglesey for fittings.

And two weeks ago all fingers pointed at Bruce Oldfield. The fact is that people jump at what ever little hint comes out. I can see Oldfield doing it before McQueen, Sarah Burton just doesn't have the same name and pull. She may be designing under a major label, but since the death of Alexander McQueen his label has not been the same. Perhaps if he was alive I'd be more inclinded to believe it. In the end it might be here, it might be Oldfield, and it might be someone completely unexpected. I get a feeling they may be intentionally dropping little hints here and there to throw people off the real designer.

McQueen is much bigger than Oldfield. Sarah Burton has already proven herself to all the critics since Alexander passed away, and people are wearing her gowns. They are more wearable than Alexander's designs. See recent ones by Michelle Obama and Mila Kunis. She would design a gorgeous dress for Kate. If anyone started the McQueen rumors it was their CEO. But they were convincing enough to be published by the Times, which is sticking by its story.

I doubt we will know until the wedding day. If Kate is seen with a designer now it is so easy to brush off her appearance as being for her evening dress or bridesmaids dresses. If the palace designers are doing her dress I will cry. That is just completely sad and a little pathetic. I'm too tired to explain those feelings right now. Lol

Diana's brother said it last year about Diana's wedding tiara. It does look heavy. Maybe both tiaras gave her a headache.

McQueen as a label is much bigger than Oldfield yes, Sarah Burton as a designer is not. Sarah Burton is riding off the coat tails of an incredible designer in Alexander. Yes her gowns have been worn by people like Michelle Obama, who actually normally is said to be a great dresser but was criticized for that dress, but she is still making a name for herself. Bruce Oldfield is an incredible wedding dress designer, and again until a few weeks ago, all the papers were reporting him.

Oldfield has a royal pedigree as a designer. He not only designed for Princess Diana (which actually may be a hinderance since they may want to draw away from comparisons) but Queen Noor and Queen Rania of Jordan (Rania's wedding dress). He has also designed for Sienna Miller, Barbra Stresiand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Diana Ross, Emmanuelle Seignar, Rihanna, Taylor swift, elizabeth McGowen, Kelly brook, Angelica Houston, Joan Collins and so on and son on.....


The point is the royal family has said under no circumstances is the designer to be named. The designer and their company would have signed a privacy agreement. If the designer was Burton, she could be in trouble for breaking a confidentiality agreement.

I doubt it will be a royal palace house designer. It will be some big designer. Oldfield and Burton are probably both out, decoys thrown out there, to keep attention from the real designer.

So we will have to wait and see on the wedding day.

Why? From the way this team have turned the way HM dresses up so many notches (Even in Italy her clothes were considered Chic) they are a very talented bunch. Given the fact that the British economy is in such dire straits, thanks to the former labour government, it would be a way to show that consideration is being given to the difficult times. It wouldn't surprise me to see a dress designed by the in house team and created from fabric that was given to HM as a gift. We have already seen The Queen wear an evening gown created from fabric that was given to her many years ago. The dress in question was deemed to be a success.
