The Royal Wedding: Will & Kate’s Magical Day – See the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen Wedding Dress & the Stylish Guests

The most watched wedding on the planet EVER!
Prince William wed Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London.
Kate wore a stunning dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Kate’s dress had long lace sleeves and a sweetheart neckline with a full skirt cinched at the waist.
According to People Magazine online;

The dress was made by hand, using French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt. The skirt, made of ivory and white satin gazar, was designed to emulate an opening flower: padded at the hips, it flowed out to the floor. The back of the dress was finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops.

Kate wore her brunette locks in cascading curls. She topped the look with a ivory silk tulle veil, which was trimmed with hand-embroidered flowers. It was held in place by a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara, lent to Kate by the Queen. She also wore diamond drop earrings by Robinson Pelham, a gift from her parents.

Her Prince, William wore the red tunic of an Irish Guards colonel.

      Where???? are we looking at the same pictures?…how can you call that “stunning”? she looks like she is wearing her Lounge Curtains please!…and her face is too cold and fake…thank God it is not about her and little or no attention was given to her….Attention seeking fake thing!

      • COLD April 29, 2011 at 9:41 pm

        i actually think she looks stunning too lol sry! david looks hot as usual n a bit diff

      • tee April 30, 2011 at 5:16 am

        theres the comment i was witing to see andhoping not to see in a sense – naijasdont understand “understated elegance#### lol it must be loud, tight, ie. ill fitting # and overaccessorised OTT (over the top) for it to be stunning –

  • Ayaoba April 29, 2011 at 11:42 am

    Simply bearifulll, elegant, classy…
    Infact, I also want a royal wedding ooo, dts y am called ADEOLA – AYAOBA

  • Tracy April 29, 2011 at 11:45 am

    Bella Naija you are too much joooo ahah three gbosa you guys are doing wonderful job

  • Nancy, April 29, 2011 at 11:51 am

    simple classy wedding. if only the word ‘simple’ could be introduced into naija’s weddings instead of pple trying to outdo each other as if its a competition. too much waste of funds!

    • Na OH April 29, 2011 at 7:44 pm

      You’ve got to understand that there’s a huge difference in our cultures. The Brits are renowned for their understated (almost shabby at times) elegance. I wouldn’t change the way we Naijas rock our events for all the gold in the Royal Mint.

    • wuggy May 5, 2011 at 1:32 am

      exactly! less is always more. very simple and yet elegant and classy!

  • mzdiva April 29, 2011 at 11:59 am

    OMG! I am currently watching this. The hats are beautiful especially Victora Beckham’s, I didn’t spot anyone giving her a peck – no wonder, its quite a health and safety hazard with those twigs. Central london is packed. I heard Goodluck Jonathan is there and I’ve seen alot of black people there too. Someone told me they have spotted an agbada.

  • Mee… April 29, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    for the cuople ; fine wedding. for bella ; timely

  • Raphael Aigbugui April 29, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Never tot id say dis about anoda guys wife,but… damn Kate!The beckhams are looking terrrific.check out dave top hat.Reminds Me Of Silas Manna.Dont Know Why.

    • Wande April 29, 2011 at 7:28 pm

      Er, that would be “Dave’s top hat….AND Silas Marner”

  • marvel April 29, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    I am impressed with the timing. Ah, ah? Currently watching it.. Infact, quadruple mwah….

  • Ade April 29, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    victoria beckham! what in heavens name are you wearing. Are you mourning?Beautiful wedding

    • Straight4ward April 29, 2011 at 7:27 pm

      That annoying statue of a human being (Victoria Beckham) couldn’t even crack a little smile, like her face was going to break if she did…instead she was busy pouting and looking like a right idiot!…Everyone else looked happy and really good!

      • Peperempe April 30, 2011 at 12:50 am

        Honestly I can’t stand her; even inside the venue she was the same. She’s always looks so self conscious with the constant pouting and posing. I can’t hate on her hustle cos she manages to sell her plain designs for thousands of pounds, but I just can’t get over her narcissism.

    • Na OH April 29, 2011 at 7:47 pm

      SMH @ Ade. What the dickens are you on about? VB looks stunning!

      • Kilonsparkles April 30, 2011 at 3:29 am

        I don’t understand o. She wore navy blue…not black, and they said she looks like she’s mourning. She looked stunning, yet they said she’s cold and fake. KMT.

    • Obi April 30, 2011 at 1:04 am

      I’ve always wondered why Americans wear black to weddings. Seeing this, I guess it’s not only Americans who do it. In our culture black is for mourning, in theirs … maybe classy/elegant is the effect they are wanting to have.

  • phatcat April 29, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    na d wedding gown be dat??smh…

    • Emem April 29, 2011 at 12:55 pm

      Do you need

    • BC April 29, 2011 at 3:19 pm

      I don’t fancy it either! truth be truth. They all look kinda old fashioned.

  • Esther April 29, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Bella Naija you too much ,this wedding is going on life now on CNN. I wish them good in they wedding.

  • brb April 29, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Joss Stone…Pure class. Tres Chiccccccccccc!

    Chelsy Davy…don’t know but something looks off somewhere, somehow.

    Tara Palmer Tomkinson, did you fall into blue paint? You should have done away with the gloves.

    Congrats to the uber royal couple.

  • Peperempe April 29, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    The dress is beautiful and London has come to a standstill today. Kate is very pretty and balding William is a good match for her. I love seeing members of other royal families around the world.

    On another note, why is Samantha Cameron not wearing a hat? I don’t think it is polite to draw attention to oneself at another woman’s wedding by breaking tradition and dresscode. Fergie’s daughters need help with their wardrobe; they spend a lot on clothes but don’t always look it. One of the best dressed civilians there was Theresa May even though she isn’t in the pictures. I see TPT has got a new nose for the Big Day, she looks okay even though the hat is a bit shady.Why is Victoria Beckham dressed for a funeral? That lady has always had taste issues. What kind of shoes are those for a wedding of this nature? David looks happy and Victoria as usual is busy pouting.

    • WaleAdeniji April 29, 2011 at 1:48 pm

      I want to belief everyone is free to wear whatever we feel comfortable on us. What gives you the impression that she did it on purpose just to attract attention? Does she likely stand to gain anything by doing that? Not quite i think! Anyway, its a nice wedding. I love the simplicity.

      • Ready April 29, 2011 at 5:41 pm

        Umm…not at the royal wedding. They were sent 22-page brochures on etiquette & in those brochures, the men were advised to wear morning coats complete with tails, and the ladies were advised to wear hats. David Cameron was gonna wear a regular suit, but decided to wear a morning suit after the public’s pressure on him for planning to be disrespectful. I guess he passed the baton on to his wife. Not that I really care….but if the British decide to criticize her for it, she asked for it.

      • Peperempe April 29, 2011 at 7:14 pm

        Yes we’re all free to wear what we want but when attending another person’s function it is only polite to try to stick to the dress code. Women are expected to wear a hat to the marriage service so I think a small token hat would have sufficed.

  • brb April 29, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    Oh, my comment on the Beckhams…Simply gorgeous. David, that get-up is royal sweetness.

  • Bangis April 29, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Instantly on Bella naija- thanks for the pictures. 😉

  • Peperempe April 29, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    I forgot to add that the Queen looks fabulous; she is a fashionista just like her mom!

  • Emem April 29, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    So beautiful. am happy for them

  • Ginika April 29, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    I am unable to watch the wedding- due to my own fault, story for another day- but my heart is screaming from excitment. I love royalty, I love that they all look so so feminine, love love that. I also want to dress up and wear fancy hats but with ankara, lace or george material.

  • Ginika April 29, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    I forgot to mention that Kates wedding dress, make up and hair is elegance personified… I just might replicate the exact look for my own wedding #groupiemomentrighthere!

  • moi! April 29, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Thanks bellanaija! The bride’s dress is timeless. 50 years from now, it will still be beautiful. As for Victoria Beckham, one would think this is a funeral. She’s supposed to be a designer isn’t she?

  • alexy April 29, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    congrats to the hottest couple in the world! may ur marriage be filled wt every happiness ur hrts can carry

  • SOBY April 29, 2011 at 1:07 pm

  • anonymous April 29, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    very nice wedding, the timing was impeccable…that can hardly happen in couple wish them the best. Why does princess Beatrice have a spider aon her head?…doesnt photograph well sorry for the wedding pictures. Kate”s mum outfit is so boring..disappointed.Pray that they have a good marriage and no divorce. Queen looked regal love her. the beckhams so classy.Too many Fasinator hats me no like. Chelsy Davy”s outfit is such a let down with all her money.

  • alexy April 29, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    congrats to the worlds hottest couple, may ur lives be filled wt all happiness ur hrt can carry

  • Slim April 29, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    The wedding arrangement was simple and okay compare to naija’s own. we do disturb ourselves unnecessarily as if we are into competition of some sort. BN thanks.

  • patty April 29, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Ade or whatever ur name is,u re nt fashion forward and obviously living in a different world,how dare you open ur mouth and say such about Victoria Beckham? She looks absolutely phenomenal. sorry u don’t get it!xxxx

    tHE Americans CAN NEVER DRESS as good as the british. I miss living in London and all the fashion (i dont miss the weather) – now i want to go back.

  • dewowo April 29, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    i might sound diff cos i am. there is really noting spectacular bout these pix/wedding (except being tagged ROYAL) cos i’ve seen beta weddings posted on this site time and time again.
    why should i be taking panadol for someone’s headache. that said, i wish them all the best in this journey…

  • K! April 29, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    Nice wedding. I love royalty. Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria looks fab.
    Thumbs up Bella Naija.

  • Tyna April 29, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    The wedding is simply beautiful and simple , the guest are also luvly compare to our very own…………………

  • bluebubbles April 29, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    I’m sure if it was a nigerian weddin u wud be able to spot the mother of the bride by the size of her gele.Please people I urgently need tips on how to rock these sky high heels without going down wit muscle pull.Even pregnant Victoria can why not me?

    • MzShow May 9, 2011 at 8:02 pm

      Practice makes perfect. Practice around the house in them first, this would also help you break them in before you wear them to an event. Look confident because its so easy to spot someone who cant walk in them when they have that deer in the headlights look on their faces. Try wearing block heels first before doing stilettos, they are sturdier and doesnt hurt your feet as much.

  • BC April 29, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    The Brits are frumpy for real. Look at prince Harry’s girlfriends dress. What? And Beatrice and Eugene.What kind of brown number is that? On the whole it was O.K. I have more spectacular weddings from ordinary Nigerian folk.

    • Straight4ward April 29, 2011 at 7:31 pm

      Hahahah!….exactly what i was thinking, Princess Beatrice’s hat looks quite interesting, like she is growing a horn upside down….

  • BC April 29, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    *Seen more spectacular weddings*

  • Rebel April 29, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    bella = TIMELY!!!!

  • Tiki April 29, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    So BN, you were waiting for a royal English wedding to release pictures not only on time but DURING the event abi? smh
    That said, the wedding looked beautiful…love the fact that Kate looked nervous as her dad was walking her in, not calculating ‘I am gonna be royalty in a few minutes.”! Wish y’all all God’s richest blessings, love, prosperity and children, and the gift of growing old together.

  • Chibaby April 29, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Kate’s dress is ugly. Abegi. And that girl is not Harry’s girlfriend. She is ex. All of them traditional hats some of the women like Victoria Beckam wore should be burned to ashes. … Naija ppl can throw royalty wedding better than this. I think the royal family are too conservative. I bet ya Kate had to have her dress approved by the queen before she even tried it on. The whole wedding looks dry and boring.

    • Peperempe April 29, 2011 at 7:20 pm

      My dear do not deceive yourself; which Naija “royal” wedding can attract the calibre of people at this event. Heads of State, global captains of industry, royals from around the world. True, Naija weddings are usually more fun, extravagant and exciting but let’s not confuse issues here.

      The Royal Family are conservative by tradition because the English aristocracy see it as a way of maintaining a sense of social justice. If they were to go about showing just how wealthy they are, they would quickly become very unpopular.

      Having said all that, I was at a glorious Indian wedding in February and it was a lot more fun and extravagant than this one. It made me miss the classic Naija wedding.

      • Chibaby April 29, 2011 at 10:18 pm

        I guess I was expecting a gorgeous conservative dress than what my dear Kate wore. It added to frumpy look of the Royals. Everything is super toned down. Even the bright colors are toned down. So gloommy.

    • ricky April 29, 2011 at 7:23 pm

      u are rud

  • princess April 29, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    i commend u on this, u were just on time!!! keep it up please

  • Chibaby April 29, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    But dang, The Church is gorrrrgeous! I would luv to wed there.

  • Sparkles April 29, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    All you hating on d wedding gown, did u want to see a BOLERO and the usual akamu sieve/MOSQUITO net they use these days. Pls this is a true definition of simple, classy, and not over d top! peace out!

    • Omada May 6, 2011 at 11:13 am

      True!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i agree 100% some people want to see undersized jackets and boobs flying everywhere. smh.

  • eddie April 29, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    It’s amazing what Bella Naija can do, cudos to you. People should not criticize Victoria B, she is pregnant and i think her dress fits her well.

  • busola April 29, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    Nigerians should learn a thing or two from this wedding. We like unnecessary show off :/

  • flakky April 29, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    Nice pics………………hapi foru guys…………all the best

  • Jess April 29, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    Not many people like her dress, but I love it, the whole Victorian-esque thing is awesome. Can’t forget the Beckhams, ON point. I wish Princess Di was around not the out-of-place-looking Camilla(yes the beef is personal).

  • aminu adamu April 29, 2011 at 5:32 pm


  • roberta zadelski April 29, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    I think Kate’s dress is too simple for a wedding gown for the future Queen of England. Prince Harry’s girlfriend definitely needs to get a personal sylist if she wants to walk down the aisle with him in future.
    Has anyone noticed that Nigerian weddings are so much more glamourous than even a Royal british wedding? O i am proud to be a Nigerian!!!

    • Ari L. May 1, 2011 at 5:40 am

      Simple is Classy! No Bughetto dressing here o!

    • Omada May 6, 2011 at 11:19 am

      my dear they are Brits and we are Nigerians, besides i think you are replacing OTT with glamorous. in my humble opinion, i think we over do things too much.

  • Rica April 29, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    The only difference between this wedding and the others I have seen on bella naija is the word “ROYAL”..We still have classy weddings in naija..and for the person that said Nigerians spend soo much on weddings..No naija wedding has cost 30 million dollars..This wedding was 35 million dollars…and am yet to see where the money was spent, except they bought the clothes for all the guests..That said, I wish Kate and Will a happy married life, just same way I wish every other married couple..May Love, understanding and patience forever reign in your home…

  • msphareedah April 29, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    ..And the best hat goes to that beatrice lady with her lady gaga head gear..Seems like Pippy is doing all the work in this wedding,, Harry’s babe meanwhile looks very somehow, not on point at all..

  • doubleyouhehigh April 29, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    hmmmm..BN! It dint take long to get the royal wedding pictures up…meanwhile sometimes we have to wait months to see our own people’s wedding pictures
    Good job still

  • aj April 29, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    Yeah it is simple and elegant. Not colorful. This is what classic is all about.

  • miss B April 29, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    @everyone calling the Brits frumpy, please don’t forget this is a ROYAL wedding, a very conservative occasion, too bad u lack the taste to understand this kind of fashion, typical naija peeps, ever heard about being simple and classy? FYI the Brits ain’t frumpy..

  • niyoo April 29, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    David beckham can fine!!!! eye candy

  • niyoo April 29, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Stop harrassing bella for putting up the wedding photos immediately. How many Nigerian weddings trend on twitter, with people uploading photos to different websites real time.

  • T April 29, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    I think (personal opinion),
    Kate’s dress was boring perhaps it’s a result of all the media hype and the hush hush that accompanied the dress’ making..I mean… she stepped out of the vehicle and I said… that it? and what is it with the ‘nipple part’ of the dress…I could swear her nipples were pointing. Let’s not compare it to Nigerian weddings. I am not a fan of the ostentatiousness that we portray at our occasions but, We have totally different cultures remember?
    Price Harry’s Girlfriend aint pretty at all..compared to kate. thank God he aint the first child.
    Posh (from TV) looked nervous..wonder why
    For Beatrice and Eugine…they could as well be auditioning for the ugly sisters in cinderella story…
    Anyways, i am not a fashion I might be wrong…
    THE AMAKA…I admire you..ur comments make sense!

  • TawaB April 29, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    I thought dis was a very elegant wedding! wasn’t expecting it but wow the dress was just breathtakingly simple yet elegant! Ok so y is everyone hating on Victoria Becks again??? She looks gorgeous…luvin’ the look and ofcourse the love of my life David Beckham, drop-dead gorgeous as usual. Joss Stone looks stunning as well #okI’mdone#

  • TawaB April 29, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    It was like every other wedding, the only difference was that the whole world was watching! They look so in love, so this will definitely be a success! Princess Di will definitely be proud *sniffs*

  • toya April 30, 2011 at 12:02 am

    Disappoinnted wedding lacks fabulosity.Groom was more engaged than bride saying vows, kiss seemed rehersed not natural.

    This is how you know Nigerians will never be as classy as the British. Weddings are no longer a nice day to celebrate love but to show us how much money your father can borrow at once from his loan sharks.

    You equate a beautiful wedding with the size of your mummy’s gele and the size of the her emerald necklace (a la -), If you don’t borrow the most expensive car in to the wedding na wahala. If feathers and lace aren’t shooting out of the brides vag, wahala.

    They are teaching you a lesson in simplicity and class. She had 2BILLION people watching her walk down the aisle. What else is there? you were expecting a Coming to America fairytale gown? With boas in her hair?

    lovely, the wedding is stunning, no wonder Russell Kashket said that “We remind the world that if you buy cheap you will buy twice,” i believe this is the wedding of 21st century, oh my God…

    I think this wedding is the best ever after that of Prince Charles and Diana. This is really awesome, i need to take a pic just at the gate of Buckingham b4 i die. Power is the greatest…

    the dress was nice and so was her make-up but i think she looked old, more like a middle-aged bride (her face was a bit gaunt). As for Posh, am guessing she wore the the subtle navy blue so she wouldn’t be accused of trying to up-stage the bride but as usual people will still talk. The 1st kiss ummh, just thankful there was a

  • Tochi April 30, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    The beckhams look lovely. Big ups to william and kate and I hope God grants them a peaceful and longlasting union

  • menoword April 30, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    VB’s shoes were customized to take the pressure off the heels. That’s why they’re so high, the platform probably took 3 inches off. And I think she looked classy, she’s obviously not a “smile in public” person…no be by force to smile. I hope to look as good as she does when I’m carrying.

  • Bukky May 1, 2011 at 2:47 am

    Now I understand why Princess Beatrice and Eugenie were described as looking like Cinderella’s step sisters by the British media.

    Happy for the couple, but having watched the documentary on E! Channel on the Royal wedding, I give Kate kudos for being a smart girl. She caught his attention by wearing the see-through lingerie and made sure she stuck to him till he married her.

    Wishing you luck Kate, I pray your marriage lasts longer than Williams parents, if not you are guaranteed a large sum of divorce settlement.

  • iphie May 1, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    she’s so skinny!!

  • Sarah May 1, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    Very happy for the newly weds and all the best to them both. They seem like two people in sync in the sense that they prefer the simple things in life and know what they want. As for those who are saying her dress is “too boring” all I can say is thats your prerogative and its a good thing Kate doesn’t care what others think! Clearly such people do not understand the concepts of class, sophistication and elegance (such a pity) Had Kate walked down the aisle in a meringue dress critics would have called it trashy or “too much”. I absolutely loved her dress and its interesting that it has a touch of Grace Kelly about it and must say that if it was indeed Kate’s intention then touché darling touché.

  • Eliza Benson May 2, 2011 at 8:12 am

    Wow! Jecca Craig was there? don’t know how people can go to their ex’s wedding.. I certainly would not! Anyway back to the lovely couple.. the everything about the wedding was what I expected it to be.. traditional and straight to the point.. but it was beautiful.. Loved Catherine’s dress, elegant and timeless. Prince William looked soo handsome! and as for the Beckhams they looked absolutely gorg as usual.. all of you saying VB looks horrible are just haters! You WISH you were her… Love ya VB always have and always will! Congrats to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.. Wish them a long and happy marriage.

  • avisa May 2, 2011 at 9:38 am

    I’m pretty sure Kate asked for a VERY muted-down dress so as not to annoy angry British taxpayers even further. If you know anything about Alexander McQueen (and the lady in charge of the fashion line now Sarah Burton), you know that the designers of dresses like this could definitely do a whole lot more. I think the neckline is pretty but the dress is plain. There’s a way to look beautiful and different without planting diamonds on the dress, but they really missed the mark on this one. Also gee why was the bridesmaid wearing white too? I think it was not in good taste, as her dress looked much better and sexier than the bride’s. Imagine a veil on her, and gbam.

    Chelsey Davy really looks like she needs help. I thought she was a youndger Courtney Love for a second. My thought would be that Harry should go the other direction fast. There’s a lot you can tell from someone’s dressing, and Davy’s dress and look gave all the wrong ideas about her.

    During the royal wedding, I was preparing for another wedding, where the bride looked simple and gorgeous. I know what I’m talking about so I hope people take time to see my point before responding in the negative. Either way, the most important thing is that they have a happy, lasting marriage 🙂

  • On point! May 2, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Now people let be real, I love Posh too but really wat is she wearing?? A lot of us here r sounding like we have to agree with her outfit becos she’s Vicky but I beg to differ, I’m not going to say much about her shoes na she Sabi but d neck line of d dress is too casual to carry off d hat, maybe if d dress was taffeta or satin it might have just sufficed! D color is too dark for the occasion and she could just smile a bit, God don do too much for her with d beautiful boys and a girl on d way, d money, did u see her rock? And den der is ….DAViD?? Pucker up girl, be urself once in a while dats all…

    • BC May 2, 2011 at 2:26 pm

      VB is pregnant for goodness sake. What do you want her to wear? It was classy, I thought. It hung on her pretty nice. Plus she was one of a couple of people in dark color. She blended in with all the pastels and toned down colors.

  • chioma May 2, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    Tara Palmer Tomkinson looks like she is wearing a “vagina” on her head…lol

  • Nkem May 3, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    The wedding cake is so beautiful…really nice.

  • molarron May 3, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    thats the word elegance personified remember watchin it and I said wow that make up is simple and beautiful, not the over the top wedding make up we usually c in 9ja! and the dress….its simply gorgeous!!!

  • bada bing bada bang May 4, 2011 at 2:26 am

    victoria beckham will kill herself one day see as the babe dey wear too much high heel. the thing have started disfiguring her feet…in short she should send them to me it will look better on me. lol! power pass power for this one o…nothing like my naija weddings tho.

  • Lil miss sunshine May 4, 2011 at 9:48 am

    @ Dewowo not everyone likes an elaborate, over-the -top -in your-face kinda wedding, leave that to naija ppl. My respect for William and kate grew after watching their wedding, the world was expecting fireworks but they kept it intimate, simple and modest. she even refused been picked in a carriage. we can begin to see why he chose her as his bride cos am sure there were tons of eligible princesses at his disposal he cld have picked any of them.

  • omosewa May 4, 2011 at 1:35 pm

  • opewalker May 4, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    d shoes are good but not for her (VB) are ankle joints are almost popping outta place. dress is lovely though

  • oo May 5, 2011 at 6:35 am

    Dang … una shud free VB naw!!!
    She’s VB. it doesn’t get any bigger, okay?. She was royalty long b4 kate. After all d hating, she is a national treasure and when she goes to bed at night, Beckham is in that bed. lol
    So, I dunno where pple r coming up with theories of her trying to steal any shine.
    Plus, black is the farthest color from white. That’s kinda like the utmost respect in this case.

  • Peaches May 5, 2011 at 10:55 am

    First off and straight off the bat, the royal wedding oozzzed CLASSINESS to the CORE. The dress was timeless, elegant and also traditional sticking to tradition. Sarah Burton, well done. Am expecting loads of copycats very soon . The cake was also elegant and classy, it’s not over the top or too in your face, it’s a classic, no chandeliers or too much opulence. Even though it was a royal wedding, and expecting it to be a show stopper, it was brilliantly achieved with the traditional carriage ride and etc. At Naija brides, even though we have our tradition to uphold, when we do our western white wedding, lets do it well and also achieve classiness. Anyways, am not a bride anymore, am now a wife with pikin. lol. But kudos to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Wills and Kate).

    PS. Princess Eugine fascinator or octopus is one damn ugly one. Eeewwwwww.

  • cynthia May 6, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    so simple but kudos 2 una also

  • gary@knitted baby booties May 10, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    I hadn’t seen the cake before. I’m guessing it didn’t come from “Greggs”!

  • ogy May 12, 2011 at 4:54 am

    I bet if victoria beckham had worn this dress to an actual funeral, everyone would have thought she tried to steal the day and wasn’t respestul of the dead…see nothing wrong with her wearing navy blue and as for her not smiling can we get over it please…its the way she’d rather be photographed…hate all you want…she’s got style, money, a very hot man on her arm, and plenty of undeniable swagger! Wish the royal call a lifetime of wedding bliss.

  • wumsbaby August 8, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Best dressed for me (Jos stone & sweden crown princess). I loved their simplicity.
    Worst dressed Tare palmer Tomkinson……what was she thinking!!!
    I was stuck to the TV for the royal wedding even shed a tear or two, It was simply breathtaking.
