We’ve selected some of the top British designers we think the recently engaged gal should wear when she says ‘I Do’!
While of course the location, menu, and flowers are important, nothing about a wedding makes me as excited as the dress — especially when we’re talking about a royal wedding! Now that Prince William asked his long-term girlfriend, Kate Middleton, to marry him there’s so much speculation about what the bride-to-be will wear on the big day. While I’m positive she’ll choose a British designer, will she go for something conservative, simple, or outlandish? We’ve narrowed the list down to six designers, but who do you think she should wear?
Ultimately, I think the late Alexander McQueen would’ve loved the opportunity, but here’s who I think she might wear when she says ‘I Do.’ First, off, there’s Elizabeth Emanuel, the designer behind the larger than life creation Princess Diana wore on her wedding day — but if she wanted to be different, she could go with Vivienne Westwood (many of you probably remember the dress by the designer that Carrie Bradshaw wore on her wedding day in Sex & the City). No stranger to a royal wedding, there’s Lindka Cierach, (who was responsible for the dress worn by Fergie, the Dutchess of York). Bruce Oldfield is definitely a strong option — with a penchant for elegant beauty, he have a huge celeb fan base (that includes Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sienna Miller) and at one time Princess Diana sited him as her favorite couturier! Another choice that wouldn’t surprise me is Phillipa Lepley— known for exquisite, beautiful gowns that really wow, the brand has been creating luxurious bridal creations for years. Finally, my last choice is Temperley London — the dresses are modern and chic without being overdone, and that’s exactly the type of frock I think the future bride would prefer.
