- Wedding: June 2012 - Hollins House at Pasatiempo, Santa Cruz CA
Iã€€ï½Šï½•ï½“ï½”ã€€ï½Œï½ï½–ï½…ã€€ï½Œï½ï½–ï½…ã€€ï½Œï½ï½–ï½…ã€€ï¼«ï½ï½”ï½…’s wedding dress!!! The search for a similar dress begins!!
Since Kate had to cover her shoulders, she didn’t have any choice in a halter/half sleeve/full sleeve. I love the lace bodice of the dress but I think the full sleeve would be a bit much for most American weddings (especially outdoorsy summer ones).
Here’s a dress that I love by a San Francisco wedding designer:
And here’s another one that’s kinda similar that I found online:
Have you all found any similar dresses? I’m sure knockoffs will soon appear!!

I think the Watters Escalante is a nice modern take on Kate’s dress. It has the romantic lace top but not full long sleeves:

The new Pronovias collections that came out a few weeks ago have several that are similar:

Looks like Madeline Gardner for Mori Lee has already made her first replica of the dress! Theres a thread on it already. Looks almost identical!!

Mori Lee worked on a replica as soon as Kate exited the hotel.
Finished about 30 minutes ago:

I love the simple elegance of Kate’s dress! I hope they come out with some Kate-inspired (not exact copies) of her dress. It’s so hard to find simple but formal!

Kate’s dress was TOTALLY not what I was expecting, but I loved it. Very Grace Kelly.
I thought of that Watters gown as soon as I saw it, @donnaaries!

This came up on my facebook feed today:
Is a DB look that is similar to hers. I LOVE the dress underneath all the extras 🙂

I’m hoping her gown brings back more long-sleeve wedding gowns. She looked STUNNING!

@KristenGotMarried: wow they were pretty fast with this one, and it looks quiet similar too! (at least from far away 😉

@donnaaries: I love that dress. … when I saw Kate’s dress it was the dress that came to mind… the one i let slip away (not my fault tho)

@jeannes85: I absolutely LOVED her dress on her. It was perfect for her, down to the details on the lace symbols of daffodils and i think clovers (well maybe just a slightly longer train as she’s now royalty would have been nice but probably too heavy!) It was so not over the top, just really pretty.
I’ve been looking for ages for a dress like Ivanka Trump’s dress with lace top and bottom and illusion lace top ending above the elbow, BUT with the “V” shaped lace top neckline of Kate’s dress instead of straight across like Ivanka’s. I absolutely LOVE tops and sleeves like that. So so pretty and not matronly at all. I told my Fi, Kate stole my dress idea!! She’s wearing my dress top! (minus the pleated skirt bottom 😉 haha)
I really hope designers come up with more illusion laced topped sleeved options like Kate’s and Ivanka’s. So classic, romantic, elegant, and gorgeous. Just really beautiful.

romona keveza’s new legends collection has a lot dresses with lace sleeves- I guess she got lucky/ was good at predicting what would be in after the royal wedding!
