The Dress

In approximately 11 hours, I will be watching, along with billions of others, the wedding of Kate and William.
The Royal Wedding, if you will.
I have been waiting for this for, well, most of my life. And for a good portion of that wait I was convinced that it would be me in the dress that everyone couldn't wait to see.
Well, I got my prince 2.5 years ago, so I guess Kate can have her turn now.

In preparation for the occasion, I have compiled a small list of absolutely stunning wedding dresses of past royals. Not all are royals, though...they just come up on Google when you type it in the search bar!

#1 - Princess DianaYou can't say "royal" and not think of Princess Di. There's no telling how many thousands of girls modeled their wedding dress after hers. The huge, long sleeves; the full, ball gown skirt; and the 25-foot train - It's every princess's dream!

#2 - Maria VonTrappWho doesn't want to be Maria? Cause nobody solves a problem like Maria! But seriously, I wanted to be her from the time I was 3 and saw The Sound of Music for the first time. I even asked my mom while trying on wedding dresses, "Do I look like Maria VonTrapp?" Her dress is simple, but elegant, and extremely breathtaking!

#3 - Jackie KennedyYou can't have a list of classic, beautiful women without including her. Her dress is so timeless. Some might question the design on the dress, but I think its perfect.

#4 - Audrey HepburnThis is for you KK! But really, she is the picture of classic beauty. I have always been a fan of modesty, and she has got it! She is completely covered, but still is so gorgeous. I could live without the crown of roses though...

#5 - Ivanka Trump

She is not a royal (or is she?? I really don't know) But I found this photo and absolutely love her dress. I couldn't find a picture of just her in the dress, but you can tell from this one how beautiful it is. Those sleeves are to die for. If I had a redo wedding (to the same guy, of course!) I would wear a lace dress very similar to this one.

#6 - Grace Kelly
This is probably my favorite of them all. I love everything about this dress. The lace, long sleeves, the ruching in the middle, the buttons down the front, and the not-too-big skirt. Any bride going for a vintage look - this is the dress for you.

#7 - Wait! How did that get in here?

Who are your favorites? I am so excited to see Kate's dress, and I know that she will not disappoint.

Happy Royal Wedding Eve to you all!
