Inspiration - The Royal Wedding

Okay, I know it’s had so much coverage you can barely stand it anymore, but truth be told, Kate Middleton could not have looked more beautiful and appropriate for her wedding to Prince William. It’s all about setting appropriateness, and even with her gorgeous figure, the full train and modest lace bodice were completely becoming on the future queen.

My guess is that your wedding might just be slightly less formal than William and Kate’s, but her bridal look would be just as appropriate in a variety of settings. I could see the ceremony dress in any church or chapel with a shorter train, and the reception look with a beaded belt and great little angora sweater would be pitch-perfect up in Aspen. So, for those of you loving the look, but shy of a custom House of McQueen budget, here are two dresses from designers we carry that rock the frock for a lot less cash!
