For the reception, the stunning newlywed changed into another Sarah Burton for McQueen gown. This dress is a sleeveless dress with a full skirt and features a diamante belt. To keep her warm, Kate wore an angora shrug over her dress. Thumbs up on this look!

Royal Bride Inspiration: Kate Middleton

(Source)

If you're one of the millions of Americans who have been stricken with a case of Royal Wedding Fever, we've got your prescription right here. We stayed up very late last night just to bring you the up-to-the-minute scoop on the big royal wedding. We were glued to our television, along with the rest of the world, waiting for Kate Middleton to step out into view and reveal her gown to the world.

She looked calm and radiant when she finally emerged from the maroon-colored Rolls-Royce with her father at her side. Kate put an end to much speculation over the designer by revealing a gorgeous gown created by Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton. She looked absolutely stunning in the long-sleeve v-neck gown which featured a lace overlay and a full skirt with a train over two meters long. She finished off the look with an ivory silk tulle veil and a Cartier tiara on loan from the Queen herself! Ahh... the perks of being a princess!

Kate's Flashy Fascinators

With the much-discussed royal wedding set to take place in less than a week, we think it's a good time to feature one of bride-to-be Kate Middleton's favorite things: fascinators. Don't worry if you've never heard of a fascinator-- it's a pretty obscure term used to describe those feathery hairclip/hat combos that Kate has made so popular over the last few months. Still not sure what a fascinator is? Check out a few of Kate's latest looks...

Obviously, possible princess-to-be Kate can pull off this bold look but we're wondering if commoners can get away with it too. What do you think-- would you wear a fascinator? Do you think we'll see Kate wearing one on her big day?

A Royal Wedding

Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to marry at West Minster Abbey on April 29th! Whether you follow the royals or not, this wedding will be huge- and not only on a literal level. This wedding will also influence all future weddings from the floral choices, to the decor, to the dress. Here's what we know about Miss Middleton:

1) The Ring: Kate wears late Princess Diana's engagement ring: a rich, royal blue sapphire with a halo of diamonds in a shared setting.

2) The Arrival: Ny Mag reports that Kate will arrive via Rolls Royce instead of the glass carriage that previous royals, including Princess Di and Sarah Ferguson, have chosen. Her choice reportedly reflects her desire to downplay the whole princess thing. 

3) The Dress: Ok, we can't write a post about Kate and Wills and not speculate on the dress, so here is our two cents, for what it's worth: She will most likely wear a conservative gown for two reasons. One, she's got to follow in the footsteps of all the royal ladies before her, and they were all pretty conservative. Two, she dresses pretty conservatively in her daily life, so this may be more of a natural choice than we think. We're willing to bet that whatever her choice, she will definitely have a train. With her tall and slim body type, we think these options would look fantastic on her:
