They have posted pics of the Abbey and the flowers. They are greens and whites. I think it is going to be a earthy color theme for the dresses like the Autumn Kelley color green or even a ivory color. Often you pull your bridal bouquet from the flowers or vice versa they all go together and looking at the pics makes me want to see the bouquet and gown even more. I have a feeling that that they really are trying to make it a wedding that would occur in a local church but they are "forced" to do it live in front of millions. I am really leaning towards her not wearing a tiara....PLEASE LET ME BE WRONG!

From the looks of the articles I was reading in the Daily Mail, the dress is already at the Goring Hotel. There was a picture of someone helping load the Middletons' personal affects into the hotel, and one of them was a very long white dress bag.

NO it can't be Royal Casual. I will be out at 4am in my Spencer Tiara and my girls will have on fascinators while we have scones and tea for breakfast on my Grandma's China. We got up at 4am when I was 6 to watch Charles and Diana get married. Katherine will be a beautiful bride no matter what dress she wears but she needs to step it up and be a beautiful Princess Bride.

Oh I would so love to be a cleaning lady and sneak in and take a peek at the gown....it is probably under 24 hour security watch!

I wish Catherine would pick something with a really nice corset bodice and a sort of an A-line skirt with some beautiful detailing. I'd also be happy with a straighter lined skirt that is gathered at the back. No ruffles or too much detailing but clean lines and something to spice it up. I saw a beautiful hairstyle by Lino Carbosiero on a British TV documentary about the preparations for the wedding and I'm hoping she would go with that, a beautiful tiara and a simple veil.

Something like this with long sleeves might be nice:

The fabric of the skirt could be nicer of course and draped more nicely than in this gown but you get the idea. I also like this one:

It would have to have some sleeves of course, since I believe long sleeves would be required.

I think you are right MichelleVA. I hope my intuition about no tiara is wrong.

Kate Middleton's dad arrives with dresses ahead of royal wedding - picture - mirror.co.uk
Somehow I doubt they'd be bringing the dress. I have a feeling the dress has already been delivered elsewhere or it will be delivered but not by the Middletons.

You know, you cannot necessarily 'see' if the dress is a full one or a tight fitting by looking at the garment bag. My wedding dress had quite a lot of heavy silk in it (several meters) and it could still fit inside a fairly regular size garment bag (well, not exactly the smallest one since I am the same height as Princess Diana ). Of course that did not include the farthingale (a sort of underskirt, a hoop skirt) that had to be carried separately. I would expect Miss Middleton's ensemble to be delivered in several bags and boxes as well.

I saw the pic of them unloading the wedding attire in garment bags, and I thought I saw a bit of gold peaking out from the garment bag that looks like a formal dress. However, I have doubts that THE wedding dress would be brought in so casually. Considering how top secret it has been, and the fact that the bag doesn't look bulky enough for a wedding gown, I would say it wasn't her wedding dress. My bet is the designer will sneak it in sometime tomorrow in order to let it settle and to steam or press it. The less time away from the designers workshop, the more secretive it will remain.

I agree. However, viewing the pic again I noticed that there is a sheet or some type of fabric that the delivery person is holding over the garment bag. You can see he is wrestling with it to keep the bag covered. There is also something with gold embelishment or thread hanging out. Interesting.

My bet is they long ago moved the dress into the hotel knowing the days leading up would have tons of photographers and all the rest is family dresses, or maybe outright decoys :) sneaky!

Mmmmmm....don't think so. I don't think that dress would be hanging anywhere outside of the Designer's studio without security or the Middleton family gaurding it. This has been the best kept Royal wedding dress secret thus far, and I don't think they would take any chances at this point.

They are just clips attaching a strap to the bag.

And maybe the dress bag they photographed IS the wedding dress. After all we wouldn't be expecting the ultimate mystery dress to be delivered with all the other wedding attire right in front of the cameras. Hmmmmm....very sneeky.

The dress could be at the Abbey. Kate goes to the Abbey on Friday morning, gets dressed, is motored back to the hotel in a car with blackout windows. Wearing a Red Riding Hood cape over her gown, she enteres the hotel, goes up to the suite and dons the tiara and heads off to get wed.

OR...the gown is delivered in a meat truck in the middle of the night.
