The most highly anticipated moment of the day was when Kate Middleton finally revealed her wedding dress.
A custom made ivory gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, which echoed Grace Kelly's classic lace gown.
Wedding dress designer to the stars, Vera Wang, who designed custom gowns for Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson, called the gown "an emotional statement."
"She's made her very own strong personal statement as to who she really is, it's that she is really her own person, that she has a sense of her own elegance and what is appropriate," Wang said. "She's showing the world that she's not here to only dress for fashion, she's here to dress for herself in a very elegant and dignified manner and I think that says volumes about who she is and the task that lies ahead for her.
Wang's favorite part? The veil!
"She wore such a simple veil over such a beautiful dress in its classicism," Wang said. Of course, it the "simplicity" of the veil was topped off by a "halo" tiara lent to Middleton by the Queen herself!
