The bride-to-be is believed to be wearing two dresses on her big day. For the church ceremony, Middleton will reportedly wear a gown from British designer Giles Deacon. She is then expected to change into another dress for her reception at her family’s home in Bucklebury.
Big sister Kate famously changed into a stunning second dress after her royal wedding in 2011. She wed Prince William in a regal Alexander McQueen lace gown and then slipped into a second McQueen creation for the reception.
Designed by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton, the white satin strapless evening gown featured a circle skirt and diamante detailing around the waist. She topped the look with a simple white shrug.
As for reports that Middleton has also asked her wedding guests to bring a second outfit to change into for the reception, that is likely due to the fact that there will be several hours between the ceremony and the reception, so guests may want to have a change of clothes anyway.
And they’ll want to make sure their reception look is comfortable for a night of dancing! The 300 guests will have plenty of room to party underneath the giant glass palace that was built this week on the grounds of her parents’ 18-acre estate.
