Kate Stole the Show, But Her Wedding Party Looked Good Too!

Sartorial style of the young bridesmaids, sister Pippa, and oh yeah, Prince William

We now know what the bride wore, and now we present you with the details of what the wedding party wore!

Like Princess Catherine, her sister, Pippa Middleton, wore a dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The cowl-front gown was made of ivory satin-based crepe, and it included the same buttons and lace trims as the bride's gown.

As for the groom, Prince William wore an Irish Guards Mounted Officer’s uniform with a red jacket and a gold and crimson sash. His brother and best man, Prince Harry, wore a Blues and Royals officer’s uniform.

Meanwhile, the adorable young bridesmaids accompanying the newly minted Duchess of Cambridge during her wedding were decked out in dresses highlighted by big bows in the back.

The girls -- Lady Louise Windsor, 7, the Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 8, and 3-year-olds Grace van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes -- wore handmade dresses designed by Nicki Macfarlane using the same fabrics as Princess Catherine's gown. The ballerina-length dresses with box-pleated skirts were ivory over white satin gazar topped by English cluny lace, with four layers of netting underneath.

The puff sleeves and neckline were trimmed with the same English lace as Middleton's underskirt, and the backs feature the same buttons. Completing the look were pale gold silk sashes tied in the back with a bow. The lining of the dresses were embroidered with each bridesmaid's name and the date of the wedding.

As for shoes, the girls wore Mary Janes made of satin and sporting a Swarovski crystal buckle. The little ones wore wreaths in their hair composed of ivy and lily of the valley.

The two page boys -- Tom Pettifer, 8, and William "Billy" Lowther-Pinkerton, 10 -- were dressed in miniature uniforms in the style of Foot Guards officers worn at the time of the Regency (1820s), including gold and crimson sashes with tassels around their waists.

Last but not least, Queen Elizabeth II wore a yellow dress and coat of wool crepe. The dress had beading at the neck in the shape of sunrays and onto her coat was pinned Queen Mary’s "True Lovers Knot" broach. Her yellow crepe hat was adorned with handmade silk roses and apricot-colored leaves.
