Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress Will Make £15 Million: Will You Go See It?

Submitted by on Tuesday, 23 August 2011 | 2 Comments

Remember all eyes were on Kate Middleton’s wedding dress at the Royal wedding in April this year? Designed by Sarah Burton from Alexander McQueen, Kate Middleton dazzled onlookers looking absolutely stunning on her wedding. Well, it was reported a few months back that the wedding dress would be put on public display for people who missed out on the opportunity to see the dress in the flesh.

Queen Elizabeth did as call the whole idea “very creepy” and “horrible” by the Queen when she saw it on a headless mannequin during the preview of the exhibition with Middleton last month, however this isn’t an opinion shared by others. It has been reported that the dress will attract more than 500,000 visitors catching a full view of the dress as well as the tiara, diamond earrings, shoes and eight-tier wedding cake with the cut made by the newly-weds, on display at the Buckingham Palace.

Tickets to see the dress will cost £17.50, however many visitors are paying £31 to also see the Palace, Royal Mews and Queen’s gallery. It is expected that as a result the royal wedding dress showcase will make £15 million. The proceeds of the exhibition will go towards care of the Royal Collection including paintings, sculpture, jewellery and for the opening of the royal residences.

Kate Middleton’s wedding dress is a simple, classic gown with intricate detailing, set of with a chic chiffon veil and a stunning train was the look Kate chose to wear. The dress had a elegant v style neckline with full length sleeves and a sleek A-line skirt. Lace detailing was key, with feminine applique flowers.

Many people have tried to replicate the dress, such as highstreet retailers and other fashion designers, however the most recent account of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress replica was a balloon imitation of the dress. Nonetheless, forget the imitations as you can now see the real thing for just £17.50 but would you pay to go see it or do you think it is a waste of money?
