It wouldn’t be a proper British summer without a good wedding to attend. If you know of anyone getting married this summer, they will have probably tied down most details; the cake, the flowers, the table plan and the dress will be hanging up (covered up) waiting for the big reveal.

The most popular style of dress over the last few years has been the strapless fitted bodice, with full skirt. According to a study by and, 73 per cent of brides last year opted for a strapless design, but thanks to The Duchess of Cambridge and her gorgeous lace & satin Alexander McQueen dress, the trend is now changing. She has influenced a real shift in wedding dress design with brides choosing lace, long sleeves and illusion necklines, all inspired by Kate’s dress.

Make your special day extra special

 It’s the question on everyone’s lips; who gets the task of designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress? And more  importantly what will it be like? Will she go flamboyant and go for a big dress or opt for something simple and elegant? Rumours are rife about who might get the job and we’re sure that a lot of effort will be going into keeping the dress maker a secret, for as long as possible anyway. We’re sure however that it won’t take long for someone to spill the beans and find out the truth about the designer to the royal wedding.

 A wedding dress is one of the most important things to get right on your wedding day, save for finding the right man to marry but usually that’s already been a while in the making.
