The Princess Bride

Dress for the future Queen

Amid all the secrecy of who is designing Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, we’re fairly sure of one thing – that the gown she chooses will be fit for a princess. Tina Minshall of Bridal and Formal shares her thoughts on what we may see when Kate walks down the aisle.

“Kate’s style will definitely shine through on her wedding day,” says Minshall. “Her love of simple, classic lines will be evident in her gown selection.” It’s true that Kate often wears conservative yet elegant dresses that flatter her tall, slim figure. She prefers minimal details, but has been known to wear some charming hats and fascinators, sporting ones from designers Phillip Treacy and Whitley Fischer most recently.

Since Kate and William will be married in a traditional Church of England service at Westminster Abbey, Kate will most likely adopt the modesty of previous royal wedding gowns and have sleeves. Minshall imagines that the gown will have a sheer sleeve that will allow the princess-to-be to follow the etiquette of a royal wedding but to be true to her personal style. “Another possibility is a bolero jacket that will provide coverage for the ceremony and then be removed for the reception later in the evening, allowing for a more contemporary look,” says Minshall.

The royal wedding will no doubt infuse the wedding industry with new trends, too. Minshall anticipates a new appreciation for accessories like tiaras and gloves, if Kate chooses to wear them. “And of course, whatever style she chooses for a gown will also affect the current trend for wedding dresses, whether it’s a sleek look with a drop waist and trumpet skirt or a full ball gown.”

Check back after the wedding for Minshall’s thoughts on what the bride wore for her fairy-tale wedding.
