The Royal Wedding Prince William and Kate Middleton♥♥ Complete Images of Dress and Video

I cried when I watched the wedding 
( a little ). The whole event was truly very beautiful and like a fairy tale completely, which made me wish I was there even more. After staying up till 4 a.m. to get the full live stream of the wedding, I loved the whole dress code that was made for the wedding. Definitely something not expected for a royal wedding, unique flamboyant hats and brightly/pastel colored dresses. There were many interesting outfits and SUCH PRETTY GIRLS OF COURSE :D! The men's attire was also very outstanding, from the embroidery and accessories sewn onto the uniforms that Prince William and Harry were wearing. I would love to learn to make something like that for fashion. The last thing also, and very important because such a visual impact it made, was Kate's dress made by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Something told me she was going to go for Alexander McQueen's design and fashion, since it is very unique, beautiful, and the craftsmanship is perfect. What is even more amazing is the construction of the dress. The whole process sounds very pure. First off, the dress was handmade from English, French Chantilly Lace, and ivory and white satin gazar. The lace appliques (ornaments ) were handmade by the Royal School of Needlework using a technique called Carrickmacross that originated in Ireland in the 1820s. The lace workers washed their hands every 30 minutes and replaced their needles every three hours to ensure that the lace remained puuuure white. The flowers designs in the lace are of actual flowers, such as rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock. I also came to find out that Kate Middleton looked curvier than usual ( she doesn't appear curvy at all ) because the  silhouette featured padding at the hips, as a reference to traditional Victorian corsetry as well as a signature of the most dramatic McQueen looks. 58 gazar and organza covered buttons ran up the back of the dress. She surely is the luckiest gal on earth right now♥♥♥
