I think Isabella’s dress is pretty different from Kate’s. The tops of the two dresses are pretty similar, though. I like Kate’s better.

edit: Also, it’s not like they’re the first two brides to wear dresses with lace sleeves, lol.

i dont follow any of this royal wedding stuff except what is posted on the bee!  but i find that pretty harsh to suddenly dig up a similar wedding dress someone wore in the past and call her “copycat kate”!  wedding dresses can only be so different since they typically floor length and white!  everyone will always find someone with a similar dress, that doesn’t mean they did it to “copy” someone else.  maybe kate liked how her dress looked on her and that was the end of it!

They are VERY, VERY similar. Both beautiful, I like Kate’s sleeves better. But yeah, I can’t see how nobody around could have noticed and not said anything. However, whats the big deal, right?

So everyone with a sweetheart neckline and lace is copying?

@pui.puni: I agree. Kate’s is different. The lace goes all the way to her waist whereas the other one looks like a lace jacket. Honestly, I like Kate’s better.

I think Kate’s is 10 times better looking and well made. You can tell that the skirt is different on Isabella’s gown…

It’s not like Kate had much of a choice with sleeves anyway. Either lace or the same fabric as the rest of her gown and that would have looked awful.

There aren’t many covered up wedding dress options out there, I feel for those princesses-to-be (for about a nano second)….I love both dresses and feel that BOTH of those women looked to Grace Kelly for inspiration.

@Neva: They’re both lovely dresses but the lace and detailing are completely different. Kate’s is allover lace on the bodice and then that beautiful detail on the bottom. It doesn’t surprise me that they both used Grace Kelly as the model of how to marry a prince in a church with the lace sleeves and bodice. Either way, they’re both nice dresses. I like Kate’s more than the other.

Aww, there’s only so much you can do when you have to have a classy sleeved-lace dress. I’m sure it’s a coincidence.

Also… I think Kate’s dress looks well made and fits her body perfectly. Isabella’s dress looks kinda cheap and crinkles in weird places, doesn’t look perfectly fitted.

The skirts are like night and day, totally not a fair comparison.

Most royal wedding gowns are similar to each other. They usually always have  long sleeves, covered back, dipped neckline or queen anne neckline, a full ball gown skirt e.t.c so technicially royal brides dont have much room to be “original”  I dont think they are allowed to wear strapless/tea length or other styles that regular modern brides can wear.
