I think her dress was absolutely gorgeous and had I seen it on another bride other than her I would have found it just as beautiful. I don’t think it’s particularly odd for stores to come out with similar dresses. I know hundreds of other brides will wear the exact same dress I will wear on my wedding day, so it’s not like most dresses are particularly unique. I will admit it might be a bit strange for someone to specifically buy a dress and accessories just to be a recplica of Kate Middleton on their wedding day. But in general I just think her dress is pretty… Tongue out

I wouldn’t want to have a copy of the dress, but I don’t see anything wrong with women who do.  And think it was stunning.  (Personally I’m just thrilled that she wore sleeves!  I’d love to see them make a comeback.)  Bridal trends come and go.  I say whatever makes a girl feel beautiful whether it’s a copy of Kate’s dress or a Vera Wang gown or anything in between.

As for the ring, I remember when it was out originally it sparked a bunch of copies for a while and it died out.  My ring is an emerald and nothing like it, but I’ll confess part of why I wanted a gemstone ring was because of the sapphire Diana wore.  I wanted my own twist on it with an emerald, but it’s definitely rooted in my concept of a fairytale ring when I was a little girl.

Its not for me, but I definitely understand why some ladies would love to have that same princess feel on their day.  I think people getting a wedding dress because a Kardashian wore it is much more ridiculous 🙂

I find it no different than buying a dress similar to Audrey Hepburns or anyone famous. Brides are on here all the time looking for dresses similar to ones worn by movie stars. I think that Kates dress was very classic and very reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s, yet another famously copied dress.

I’m guilty of having a dress that’s a version of someone else’s famous wedding dress so I can’t really talk, but I think it would look very different on someone other than Kate. It’s a beautiful dress and versions of it were around for fifty years before Kate wore it!

If you wore the full ensemble then it might be a little odd, especially if you had the groom in a copy of William’s outfit!

As long as people are picking the dress based on how it looks on them rather than trying to live out someone else’s dream, I don’t see the problem. Just because two brides wear the same dress doesn’t mean they’ll look the same; everyone brings their own bit of personality and uniqueness to a gown.

I bet there were a good number of brides out there looking for something similar to Kate’s dress before it existed, but now any woman who wants to try it on will worry about looking like a copycat instead of a woman who just wants a dress with lace sleeves.

Sorry, this is getting a bit vent-y, but I absolutely hate that just because a celebrity has something specially made, everyone else who likes the same thing is suddenly a bandwagon jumper. My mom had a sapphire and diamond ring long before Diana got engaged, and it really bugged her that everyone assumed her ring was a copycat. If Kate had worn a Watters Austin or a Vera Wang Gemma, etc., etc., this would be a non-issue.

I agree with you that it’s just really over the top and irritating that everyone feels the need to copy the royal wedding. Just like it’s irritating that people sometimes go right along with trends without even thinking about who THEY are and what THEY like. No personal style whatsoever! I don’t mean to offend anyone, but I just feel like it’s sad that celebrities and companies have such a hold over people that people lose their sense of self and individuality. 

The royal wedding is fascinating in a way, just because it’s a real-live prince getting married, so it’s of public interest. I think it’s fascinating for the history factor- the British trhone has a long history and I love to learn about it; it’s really neat to see the continuation of that legacy today. It’s great if you’re interested in it, but you shouldn’t sacrifice your personality to copy it down to the ring and the dress for YOUR wedding day!

I don’t think it is ridiculous.  We all take inspiration from somewhere.  If someone wants it and they want to feel like royalty on their wedding day, they should go for it!!!!  Shouldn’t all brides feel that way?????
