It was perfect. It really was. 
I have fallen fowl of criticising her eye shadow, smiliness etc etc but it's ridiculous. We love to find fault in anything and everything and this seemed to be the case with the Royal Wedding. But it shouldn't be. It was wonderful, she did so well (I mean I cannot begin to imagine how she must have felt with the whole world watching) and that dress was a TRIUMPH. 

I think I loved this side view of the dress the most...

Bridesmaids and Pageboy outfits - IMPECCABLE. (Felt very envious)  Girls made my Nicki McFarlane and Boys by Kashket & Partners.
I thought what Sarah Burton had to say about it all was very sweet and exciting: 

“It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it.  It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created. I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship.  Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day.

“The last few months have been very exciting and an incredible experience for my team and I as we have worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of the strictest secrecy.  Understandably, Catherine has been very keen to keep the details of her dress a secret, which is every bride’s prerogative, and we gave an undertaking to keep our role confidential until the day of the wedding.

“Catherine looked absolutely stunning today, and the team at Alexander McQueen are very proud of what we have created.   The dress was just one component of a spectacular day, and I do not think it is appropriate to comment any further beyond saying that I personally am very grateful and honoured to have been given the opportunity to work on this project, and I wishTRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge every good wish for the future.”

Well done Sarah, Well done Kate... An inspiration to us ALL. 
Here's to a long and happy life to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge
