What did you think of Kate Middleton's (Duchess of Cambridge's) wedding gown?

The dress was made of ivory and white satin gazar, a loosely woven silk, with the skirt echoing an opening flower, with white satin gazar arches and pleats and a train measuring 2.7 meters (9 feet). The ivory satin bodice, which is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry and is a hallmark of McQueen’s designs, Prince William’s office said. - Bloomberg

I liked it and thought it suited her well. Diana's gown, on the other hand, was altogether too frou-frou for my taste and could only have worked for a 19-year-old bride.

I adored it. Strangely enough, it was just as I imagined it before the wedding. I was telling my husband that she would be wearing a tight lace bodice and a very classic, timeless dress otherwise. A great choice, and she looked fabulous in it!

The dress was gorgeous. She is so slender that the padded hips were ok. The only thing I did not like too well was the foundation garment. She looked a little pointy up front. I would have preferred a small bustle to the padded hips...... it would be cute to see the bustle come back in on fancy dress!

I loved the gown, at least she had the sense not to have a train that was too long. I remembered the train on Diana's dress it must have been at least 50 yards long with diamanté and pearls on it so it most likely weighed a ton as well as it was pure silk

I thought she was simply beautiful and regal and her gown was modest with the long sleeves and high collar. A refreshing change from all the skin some brides show on their wedding days !!!

Oh my goodness this dress is amazing! :D Talk about dream dress of all time! She looks gorgeous! You go Kate! :D

I absolutely LOVED the dress, it was so elegant and simple and seemed to "fit" Kate's personality really well.

I adored it! My only complaint was that all the beautiful handiwork on the skirt was only noticeable in close up photos but it was classic and timeless!
