The bride wore a gown by Sarah Burton and an antique Cartier tiara that belongs to the Queen! All the details on the jewelry, dress, viel, and shoes!

The whole world watched and waited for the grand reveal of Kate Middleton ‘s wedding dress, and we couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous gown she chose. Clad in a dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, her dress featured an ivory lace bodice with high-neck, long sleeves, and a sweeping satin ivory skirt.

The lace on Kate’s dress was handmade at London’s Royal School of Needlework based at Hampton Court Palace. The bodice and the skirt were made from hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace. The ivory satin bodice drew on the tradition of Victorian corsetry and her train measured eight feet long — although it wasn’t nearly as long as Princess Diana’s train, it was simply breathtaking.

As for the jewels, Kate held her full veil, complete with hand-embroidered flowers, in place with a Cartier halo tiara lent to Kate by Queen Elizabeth. Made in 1936, the tiara was presented to the Queen on her 18th birthday when she was still Princess Elizabeth by her mother. Kate also wore earrings designed by Robinson Pelham, given to the bride from her parents.

Kate’s shoes were hand-made by the Alexander McQueen team. The ivory satin complete with hand embroidered lace complimented her gown perfectly.
