Copies Of Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress Hit the High Street

Submitted by on Wednesday, 4 May 2011 | No Comment

It was bound to happen at some point, but we didn’t expect it to be so soon! Less than a week after the Royal Wedding, the most anticipated and surprising dress (lace sleeves – who knew they could look so good?!) to grace our screens, is now gracing our very own high streets.

This is obviously going to be the first of many copies out there, but we think this is an amazing replica. The detailing is near perfect, from the applique flowers to the statement neckline. Even the shape of the skirt mirrors that of the real deal.

The replica dress has been designed by Mary-Rose McGrath, a bridal wear designer from Northern Ireland, whose dresses are stocked in House of Fraser, where this dress is available to order from. Astonishingly, this design was created a mere 24 hours after the wedding itself!

Mary-Rose explains “We gathered together on Friday and the minute Kate stepped out of that car we were sketching and began to cut fabrics.”

Granted, it isn’t McQueen, and the lace hasn’t been handmade by those at The Royal School of Needlework, but we have to admit, it’s a great copy.

The Real Deal: Kate’s £40,000 McQueen wedding dress.

If you want to get your hands on what we’re branding ‘The Kate’ Wedding Dress then this version will set you back a cool £1,500, which is nothing compared to Kate Middleton’s  £40,000 gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen!

We predict there will be brides to be queuing to get their hands on one of these dresses.

Would you walk down the aisle in one of these Royal replicas?
