Blushing Brides: Fiction, Celebs & Red Carpet Inspiration

Today is the big day, for the Royal Family that is and oh, the whole of Britain. Apparently 2 billion will be watching the moment when Kate Middleton becomes a princess, yowsers!

Whilst I'm not as fascinated/crazy as others about the Royal Wedding, I am curious as to see what Kate will be wearing on her special day and if she is going to wear her hair down just as the media have been speculating. Hair up or down, I think she'll look amazing.
Plus, was that Sarah Burton (aka designer extraordinaire who has taken over Alexander McQueens label) sneaking into the The Goring Hotel yesterday afternoon? Who's making the dress? Well, we'll soon find out.

Anyhoos, I thought I'd share some snaps of stylish brides (some rather unconventional) from the past, with a little red carpet inspiration and movie wedding frocks thrown into the mix.

Wishing you all a Fabulous weekend! May the fashion force be with you!

Now, this is one wedding that will be in abundance of fashion bunnies! What will Kate wear now that she has ditched John Galliano? OR has she? Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones to play at the wedding? Rock on girl!
