Fab fridays: Steal the Royal Look & Incoporate in your wedding

Hello hello there... Are you still having the royal wedding fever? haha.. Anways here are some look u can steal from the newlywed Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and lets incorporate them into our Asian wedding style...

1. The wedding gown
Eversince her engagement, Ms Middleton kept mum on her wedding dress designer and only to reveal to the world on that very morning of their nuptials. What a surprise that the new Duchess of Cambridge wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Reports by Clarence House said that “Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress,”
The gown bears the signature of the creative director of Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton, who said working with Kate was truly a “life experience”. The beautiful ivory long-sleeved lace gown was made from hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace. It has a plunging neckline with over six feet long train of princess cut skirt.
On the bottom of the dress there were floral models, applied manually, lace and tulle, representing roses, daffodils and clover leaves. Tulle underskirt was made ​​of silk and the back of the dress buttons of organza were implemented. Alas she also wore matching shoes made ​​at Studio Alexander McQueen from shiny ivory satin.
How to incorporate the look: 
the 'kebaya' wedding dress
In the Asian weddings, french lace has always been incorporated into bridal designs for many many years. As lace has always been maintained for their exclusivity when comes to wedding wear. These brides wore them into beaded chiffon and some wore them full length in various designs. The malay brial wears such as in baju kurung, jubah -style or even kebaya style or perhaps others bridal gown which also incorporate the lace into their sleeves or their satin tops. Although Kate's wedding dress has created a Huge popularity in the UK; truth is; she and her designer could be inspired by our asian cultural bridal designs :)
Where to get: Get your bridal lace from Jakel Trading - among largest bridal-wear centre in Kuala Lumpur – with over 2,000 colors and 500 label designs to choose from. Their collection varries from from French Lace, Korean Lace, Indian Lace and also Beaded Chiffon. http://www.jakel.my   

Also different brides may have different type of body shapes (apple, pear, petite, tall etc). Do research what type of shape you have first. Then, work closely with your designers to find out which design best suits your body shape. Do you know different cuttings may able to enhance further your body shape? Eg. A boatneck can focus on your shoulders if you are big-chested, for small-chested: halterneck & plunge neck line may suits you with additional pad-up bridal lingerie. Also pear-shaped bodies are best with princess skirts, A line skirts and mermaid type skirts. If you are petite bride; do avoid puffy skirts as they make you more shorter.
