Nicky Hilton is having a Princess Kate wedding moment. The 31-year-old socialite arrived to Kensington Palace (yes, Prince William and Princess Kate’s London home) in a stunning long-sleeve lace gown to marry her fiancé James Rothschild.

The bride’s Valentino Haute Couture gown featured “three different tones of ivory and silver guipure richly embellished with crystals,” according to the release from the design house, which came with a sketch signed by designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (below). “The high neck bodice is stitched to a precious balloon skirt ending with a three meter long train.” The cathedral-length veil is “enriched all around the edge with a precious vintage lace” (hence the cringe-worthy moment when a car drove over it!) and Hilton carried a small bouquet of white flowers.

And Hilton’s walk-up wedding style was flawless too. She stepped out in a parade of white lacy minis for a variety of events leading up to the big day.

Maid of honor Paris Hilton wore a pale blue custom Dennis Basso chiffon gown and diamond drop necklace, as she coordinated color palettes with Mother of the Bride, Kathy Hilton, who also wore the pastel shade. The matriarch’s dress featured white floral appliqués along the bottom, and she accessorized with a statement pearl necklace and mini top-handle bag.

After Nicky’s engagement last fall, Paris told PEOPLE she was giving her sister total control over choosing her dress.

“I know that Nicky has impeccable taste so the bridesmaid dresses are going to be beautiful,” she shared.
