I would be remiss if I didn't blog about the recent Royal Wedding. Although I wasn't exactly all hyped up about William and Kate's wedding, I did manage to see the two exchange vows as I got ready for work on Friday. I have to comment about Kate's royal wedding dress....I think she looked absolutely stunning. And her sister, Pippa Middleton, was looking fabulous in her white dress as well.

I love the white wedding gown paired with the white bridesmaid dress...very classy.
I'm thinking that future brides will want to walk down the aisle in a Kate Middleton-like dress and designers will follow suit.
Want Kate's style but don't want to spend the big bucks AND you want to be "green"? Check out the following websites for gently used wedding dresses (some have never been worn!):
- Recycled Bride (http://www.recycledbride.com/)
- Preowned Wedding Dresses (http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com)
Brides (or former fiancées) sell their wedding dresses and other accessories on these sites. There is a huge selection of truly beautiful gowns, some designer and some not, for a fraction of the price of a new gown. What a great way to have your cake and eat it, too. Wear a beautiful gown, be green, and save bunches of money!
Note, both of these sites have a "search by size" option...use this option to make dress hunting even easier. I'm sure Kate-like dresses will be up on these sites in no time at all....
