It has been seven years since Kate Middleton married Prince William in the Royal Wedding of the year. You probably have a case of royal wedding fever with the upcoming nuptials of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. If the May 2018 wedding is bringing back feelings about Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen dress, we have some good news. There’s an affordable lookalike version going viral from H&M.
H&M recently launched its wedding shop online featuring a gorgeous selection of budget-friendly dresses for brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests. There are plenty of beautiful styles but Today pointed out that the Long-Sleeved Lace Dress ($299) look very similar to Kate’s. It might not have the long train and the veil, but it does have the bustier, long lace sleeves, fitted waist and V-neckline.
Given that Kate’s dress was a custom piece created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen and H&M’s is a mass-produced style, it’s understandable that there are some differences. But, it’s still a great style if you’re after dress inspired by the Duchess. At just under $300, it’s a steal for a wedding dress.
Only time will tell whether we’ll get a new affordable version of Pippa Middleton‘s famous bridesmaid dress complete with booty-enhancing back or whether we’ll get an inexpensive lookalike of Meghan Markle’s gown.
