The Royal Wedding

Its the evening before the Royal Wedding and there's still no word on what the future Queen Kate will be wearing down the aisle. Only the secret service could keep a secret like this covered up.. Miss Middleton's laid back, feminine style and unstuffy attitude aren't typical of her predecessors. Gossip on the street told of a clash between Kate's wish to wear a hippyish garland of flowers and the rest of the family's expectation of her to wear a tiara..

Actually quite a fan of this ivory lace mini dress.. she looks more raucous than royal here for sure.
If she was to stick to tradition, she could look to one of her predecessors for inspiration?
Princess Diana..?


 Princess Margaret..? (looking pretty Grace Kelly esque)

 Or our current queen.. HRH Elizabeth II?

Some how I don't see her wearing anything quite so fussy. So who will she wear? Kate will almost definitely be in a British designer - for diplomatic reasons.. Rumour has it that she'll wear a Sarah Burton creation under the Alexander McQueen brand - maybe like this incredibly embellished dress from Fall/Winter '11.. (never enough feather..!)

If I was a betting person I'd say that Alexander McQueen might be a bit of a controversial figure and the royal aides would be pushing for Kate to wear a heritage brand like Burberry.. Emma Watson wore an almost bridal dress by Christopher Bailey recently.. Fill in that thigh split and I'm sure I could see her swathing down the aisles of Westminister Abbey in this dress tomorrow.

Obviously we'll find out in less than 24 hours.. I have my party planned already, starts at 10am tomorrow morning...whooopeee (might have to have a quiet one tonight because tomorrow is going to be big)
