    Yes, I loved her dress and it makes me rethink my own.

    No, I'm still head over heels for my dress.

    I'll explain below.

    I’d like to wear Pippa’s dress to my own wedding.  Where can I get my hands on that?

    Kate’s dress was perfect for the occasion; which is why I’m glad I can have my wedding my way and wear whatever I want!

    My dress actually came with a bolero–that’s enough sleeves for me! I am lucky because strapless works well for me, so I’ll probably use the bolero for the ceremony and shed it for the reception.

    But, I do hate when trends make things difficult for so many people.

    YES! only because the Kate’s dress is pretty much exactly what I wanted for myself..except..I wanted a sweetheart neckline and a very small train. but besides that her dress was my dream ๐Ÿ™‚ I still think I looked fabulous in mine…

    This may have already been posted but I LOVED Pippa’s dress.  It was her dress that made me re-think my own.

    Her dress made me love mine 10 times more than I did before. Her 2nd dress was very pretty but still not close to my style.

    I thought about my dress briefly when I saw her dress, and Im actually thankful I’m not going to be a princess, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to wear my strapless gown, lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I saw her dress honestly I was a little bit underwhelmed — I don’t seem to like V-neck necklines. I think lace sleeved gowns will forever remind us of Grace Kelly. Grace Kelly rocked her dress.

    I think I even like Ivanka Trump’s wedding gown than this one.

    That said though, I appreciate Kate now more than ever. I LOVE how she didn’t try to upstage Diana’s wedding and chose something very simple. IMO She had a modest, tasteful wedding that was not marred by pomp and one-upsmanship.

    She is a very beautiful bride, what a great couple. I always had a crush on William since high school. Embarassed

    I think Eugenie and Beatrice wore those hideous hats in revenge for their mother, Sarah Fergeson, not getting an invite to the wedding!

    I think the dress is fabulous on her! Im a fan of lace! I Love my dress and wouldnt trade it for the world! My dress is sooo “me” and it fits my body well(curvy). Kate’s dress is too poofy on the bottom for my personal taste(for myself) and i dont like my arms being covered. My dress is Enzoani Dianna and seeing her dress made me feel like my dress was made for me and only me.

    Funny. I got a little ticked when I saw hers. She should have married a year or two ago when I was looking for sleeves!!! It would have made it easier when looking.

    Anyway, In the end I got my sleeves, no thanks to her. I love LOVE my dress and no one can damper that. TTD hasn’t come soon enough! Any reason to wear her again, lol.

    Styles come and go. It’s what you originally picked out isn’t it? I haven’t seen your dress yet, but I’m sure it’s beautiful. Don’t worry and enjoy your wedding moments!

    I didn’t get engaged until about 2 weeks after her wedding, but I’ve always been obsessed with her style – if I could look and dress like anyone, I think it would be her!  I aspire to such poise, grace, and elegance ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyway, I was actually slightly underwhelmed by her dress when I first saw it, but it’s grown on me and now I LOVE it.  I love the reception dress too.  I’ve had both in mind while shopping and as expected, I’ve fallen head over heels for lace (if not sleeves, since it’s not practical for me due to the heat of my outdoor wedding and the time of year).  However, I’m a lot shorter than Kate and I think the fuller skirts are a bit much on me…  But I still always mention her name when I go dress shopping, just so I can have something with the same effect as her dress without necessarily copying it!
