The Duchess of Cambridge

No doubt about it, Kate was an absolutely beautiful, blushing bride.

Her dress is an Alexander McQueen, designed by Sarah Burton.  Kate wanted a traditional yet modern dress and was reportedly very involved in the designing process with designer Sarah Burton.  I think the cut of the dress suited her so well, she looked so perfect, and such a teeny tiny waist!  The lace was hand made, the tiara is a Cartier made in 1936.  Her wedding shoes were also hand made by McQueen...NICE!  

Her bouquet consisted of myrtle, lily of the valley, sweet William and hyacinth.  Each flower has its own specific meaning:
myrtle: emblem of marriage; love
lily of the valley:  return of happiness
sweet William:  gallantry
hyacinth: constancy of love

Her sister looked beautiful as well, her dress was also very simple and elegant.  I'm a little envious of svelte little shapes!  Man, they must eat super healthy and work out like demons!

She's getting lots of comparisons to Princess Grace Kelly on her wedding day...

Do you see similarities?

This is one of my favourite parts of a Royal wedding...the carriage ride.  Fairy tales do come true (for some people :P) !

Her makeup looked flawless, rumour has it she did it herself.  But believe me, this shouldn't be attempted by everyone! :)
