Royal Wedding Dress

PLEASE READ THE UPDATED POST ABOUT THE ROYAL WEDDING DRESS AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE 


We've now heard that designers, Phillipa Lepley, Daniella Issa Helayel, or (maybe) even Elizabeth Emanuel are in the running to design Kate Middleton's dress when she marries Prince William. Many people think she'll opt for the more modern sophisticated look, rather than the plush, elaborate style sported by former Royal brides

Catherine's dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander Mcqueen. This information was kept under wraps until just before the ceremony. It's train was 2 metres, 70 centimetres. So, now we know!
