One of the most exciting questions of the past few weeks has finally been answered, and we couldn’t be more pleased! Kate Middleton (or shall we say Duchess Catherine) chose Sarah Burton of fashion house Alexander McQueen to design her wedding gown, and we couldn’t help but see a parallel between Kate’s gown and Grace Kelly’s timeless lace wedding dress. Kate has brought modest simplicity back to bridal sophistication, from her simple tiara to her small posy lily of the valley bouquet. Classic brides, take note from these royal brides of times past:
1956 Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco
1937 Duke of Windsor to Wallis Simpson and on the right, 1978 Baroness Baroness Marie-Christine von Reibnitz
1947 Princess Elizabeth
1963 Princess Alexandra; on the right, 1961 Duchess Katharine Worsley
1967 Queen Margarethe of Denmark
1976 Queen Silvia of Sweden; on the right, 1960 Princess Margaret
What did you guys think of Kate’s look and bouquet?
