I loved her dress. Understated elegance. Classic and timeless, but modern at the same time! It really let her beauty shine through instead of having the emphasis on some over the top outfit. I even loved her small boquet!
It didn’t make me rethink my own dress choice though. Her dress would not work very well with my rustic sugaring off wedding, lol! I still love her choice though!
Here are some pictures for the people who’ve been asking:

Oh my gosh. Not even a little bit.

@DiamondsandLace:I always wanted sleeves but couldn’t justify the extra price so my opinion now is the same as it was before. I still love my dress and don’t “regret” that I can’t afford the custom sleves.

I loved her dress but don’t know how i would like the sleeves on me, but i am getting married in November in new england so it might be chilly! and i am getting married in a Catholic Cathedral so it could totally work and i loved the Grace Kelly look…

Not at all. I never liked A-line or fuller skirt dresses. Pippa’s dress however is more my style. I tend to favor tighter, sleeker fitted gowns.

Her options were completely different than ours in so many ways- budget, finding a dress to fit the venue, etc. There is no way she could’ve picked a strapless dress for such a religious and high-profile ceremony.
I wonder what she would’ve picked had she been married in a more private setting?

Her dress was absolutely gorgeous. It was appropriate for her wedding and her personality. That being said…I am still absolutely in love with my dress. I think my dress reflects me and my own personality along with the personality of the wedding!
But Kate looked radiant and they both look so in love!

Absolutely not, but I think it was perfect for her- she looked classic!

I agree with everyone – if it isn’t your style (if you like a sleekier, trendier, more modern look) then yes, it’s probably not making you rethink your choice. And it isn’t like I could afford a dress on that scale anyway – the perks of becoming a princess, I suppose 😉
And I’m not rethinking mine, per se, I DO still love my dress. But I’m a bit wistful over those sleeves, and she just looked so stunning.
Is this anyone else’s favorite royal wedding dress? I like it even better than Princess Grace’s.

I have a dress that is slightly MORE modest (not intentionally, the dress was just so me). I don’t like the sweetheart on hers, but I love the sleeves. I do wish mine had a fuller skirt, though. Mine is also understated, in a bizarre sort of way…
(That’s not me, that’s the model. I’m short, chesty, and just a little bit fat.)
I like my sleeves and her skirt (minus the train) more, and while I still prefer my bodice, I wish it was a little lower. So, while I vaguely prefer my dress, hers does highlight the one big regret about my dress – the not full, not particularly bridal skirt.

Not at all! Her dress looked gorgeous on her. Very classic. She looked like the perfect modern princess. I was actually kind of excited that she chose an ivory lace gown because that’s what mine is too 🙂

Not at all… Its a classic but its nothing like what I’m looking for. I avoid lace as much as possible

I love that my dress looks absolutely nothing like Kate’s. 🙂

I don’t have my dress yet but I won’t be using hers as a guideline by any means. I might like the deep V with lace straps (not sleeves!) but I guess we’ll see.
I think she looked gorgeous, but you could put her in a trashbag and she’d still look good. Have to admit I wish she would’ve gone just a TAD edgier.
