Of course royal wedding dresses are not just simple clothes which bride wear to look beautiful and special. Those special wedding dresses are symbols of bride statute. Being kept secret until the wedding day, those dresses always awake lots of emotions and speculations of course. Find out with us the most waited for wedding gowns of 2011.
Chronologically the first dress is the wonderful creation of McQueen house, which Kate, now the duchess Catherine wore for her wedding to Prince William of England in last April. The dress was designed by Sara Burton with great assistance from Kate. White and ivory, floor length dress sateen gazar adorned by 9 feet long train looked truly gorgeous on Kate’s slim silhouette. The ivory satin, lace appliquéd bodice with narrow waist and padded hips descanted into full skirt. The veil was held in place by Cartier “hallo” tiara, which was her “something borrowed” from Queen Elisabeth. The matching shoes were also designed by McQueen house. The last accent was modest bouquet of lily of the valley, sweet William hyacinth with myrtle and ivy, all of these flowers having important meaning to Royal family. In our opinion Kate made a perfect work by joining her modest origin with splendour of becoming William’s wife.
The second in turn was Monaco royal wedding with Charlene Wittstock starring as a bride. Charlene married her long time partner, prince Philip of Monaco. Her wedding gown was designed by famous Giorgio Armani himself (as a friend of the bride). Made of white silk duchesse looked charming on Charlene. The crossover details were adorning dress’s front and back where their descended into long train. With delicate embroidery of flowers with Swarovski crystals and drop pearls the dress had quite a sober air. Princess’s head was covered by silk tulle veil, with tier in a front and delicate embroidery. The veil and dress’s embroidery was handmade and took estimate time of 800 working hours. The bridal bouquet was signed by Armani as well, and consisted of white freesias, dendrobium orchids and lilies of the valley. The cascading shape of composition fit perfectly with simple lines of her bridal gown.
The last but not least royal bride was Zara Philips, who last weekend married her beloved Mark Tindal. The bride known for her unconventional taste for her wedding day set aside her daily style. She actually shocked everyone, but in positive way, for her wedding gown revealed to be a creation of Queen Elisabeth’s own designer, Steward Parvin. Created in ivory duchess silk and softly ribbed faille. Corseted bodice finished in full skirt of dramatic bell shape. Instead of so traditional cropped jacket Zara decided on draped tulle, which formed dress’s wide straps, finishing in V shape at the back. Cathedral length veil was held in place by Greek Key tiara, which was borrowed to bride by her mother, Princes Anne. Zara’s bouquet was kept in white and silver shades and was composed of white calla lilies, sea holly, which also is known as alpine thistle and Senecio foliage.
Well, dear brides, that would be all... The wedding fairly tale ends and common days come. We hope for all of royal brides that their after wed life was as splendid as... their dresses!
