The Royal Wedding: William & Kate’s Magical Day

The most watched wedding on the planet EVER!
Prince William wed Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London.
Kate wore a stunning dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Kate’s dress had long lace sleeves and a sweetheart neckline with a full skirt cinched at the waist.
According to People Magazine online;
The dress was made by hand, using French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt. The skirt, made of ivory and white satin gazar, was designed to emulate an opening flower: padded at the hips, it flowed out to the floor. The back of the dress was finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops.
Kate wore her brunette locks in cascading curls. She topped the look with a ivory silk tulle veil, which was trimmed with hand-embroidered flowers. It was held in place by a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara, lent to Kate by the Queen. She also wore diamond drop earrings by Robinson Pelham, a gift from her parents.
Her Prince, William wore the red tunic of an Irish Guards colonel.
