It's McQueen......

Finally the day is here, the wedding of Prince William of Wales and Catherine Middleton.

Many have been waiting with great anticipation, which designer will Kate wear? There has been many names banded about but with great joy it was Alexander McQueen!

Her dress is an ivory gown with lace applique floral detail designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

Kate is said to have chosen to apply her own make up, she emerged looking radiant and ever the blushing bride, choosing a natural soft look with a little darker emphasis around her eye lashes.

The lace design on the dress made at Hampton Court incorporates the rose, thistle, daffodil and the shamrock representing the four floral emblems of the United Kingdom.

The Queen lent Kate her diamond 1936 halo Cartier tiara for the special occasion in which Kate paired with an ivory veil made of soft, ivory silk tulle, trimmed with hand-embroidered flowers framed by her beautiful long dark hair gently curled, half put in a demi-chignon with the back section left cascading down her back.

Catherine chose a simple pose of flowers which included, Sweet Williams, Ivy, Myrtle, Hyacinth and Lily-of-the-Vally.

I thought that Kate's dress was truly stunning, the vintage feel of the gown is breath taking, showing off her slender figure yet keeping it chic and demure  which is expected of the Royals family. 
Her Sister Pippa Middleton wore a elegant simple, cow-neck dress also by Alexander Mcqueen.

...and here's what I wore. Seems my invitation got lost in the post, however we did have sandwichs, tea and cakes in celebration.
