Ladies and gents, doth thy caps, as we're coming over all regal like. Yes, the royal wedding is hot on our (not quite as well-heeled) heels, and we're getting more than a little bit excited about this chance for a right royal knees up.
The wedding is set to be a celebration of the glitziest proportions, with only the finest for our future heirs to the throne. Guests will be sporting a selection of the fanciest formal dresses you ever did see, from the haughtiest designers. Occasion dresses are likely to be of the subtle but chic variety, with guests nibbling sophisticated takes of traditional English food and sipping the best Champagne money can afford. Rumours that the first dance is set to be Dexy's Midnight Runners' wedding classic ‘Come on, Eileen' are unconfirmed...
It's the question on everybody's lips...what will Kate be wearing..?! Speculation has been rife – but seems to have settled on little known London label Libélula founder, Sophie Cranston, to be designing the famed frock. If the late Princess Diana's dress is anything to go by, it will be a fabulously over-the-top yet ultimately, traditional and classic number. Something truly fit for a Queen. Whatever Kate steps out in come April 29th, one thing's certain: expect to see a chic slew of occasion dresses inspired by the gorgeous gown (with boohoo leading the way, naturally). Take a look at our Summer occasion shop for more inspiration.
Royal Wedding Themed Parties
We might not be invited to the wedding itself (let's just assume our invitation was lost in the post, okay?) but by gosh, we will certainly not be passing up on the opportunity to be joining in on the celebrations! Street parties are set to be taking place up-and-down the country to mark the big day - and of course, to give us all a chance to get dressed up (though it's not like we need one). So dust of your poshest selection of formal dresses, grab a fascinator, and make like a luxe lady-in-waiting.
Whilst Kate and Wills are sunning themselves at some mystery location, we'll be lamenting the end of the party (and Britain's most eligible bachelor having been plucked from the shelf for good) by taking a style tip or two from the wedding, and using it as an excuse to get dolled up in our formal dresses once more..! We wish the happy couple all the best!
