Diamond Dangle Earrings set in 14K Yellow GoldKate Middleton has chosen five bridesmaids, ranging in age from five to twenty-five, to stand by her side as she officially becomes royalty. There is hype not only surrounding Kate’s gown but also surrounding the gowns of the bridesmaids. While some information about the wedding has been revealed, such the baker of the royal wedding cakes, we have received no information regarding the designer(s) of the bridesmaids’ gowns or the royal gown.

According to legend, the bride and her bridesmaids would dress alike in order to protect the bride from potential kidnappers. In the middle ages, men would often capture a bride from a neighboring town if there was a shortage of women within his community. It seems that the royals have loosely followed this tradition by modeling their bridesmaids’ dresses after their own. Princess Diana’s bridesmaids, mostly young girls, wore white dresses resembling the royal gown, especially in the sleeves. Also according to royal tradition, the same designer is used for all dresses, which naturally weaves a similar touch through all the gowns.

Perhaps Kate will stick with tradition and model her bridesmaid’s gowns after her own! For now, we will have to wait and see!
