Kate Middleton's Goes on Display : Wedding Dress and Accessories

Since Everyone is talking and writing about Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress on Display in Buckingham Palace, I figured It'll be better to just provide some of the highlights of their showcase.

The display will will take place at Buckingham Palace during the annual summer opening on July 20, 2011 in London, England.
The ticket will cost £17.50 per ticket (approx. $28.50 USD) and around 600,000 people already bought advance tickets.

The Duke & Duchess

"Something old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue"

Something old: The bridal gown, from Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, featured “traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship,” a lace technique that dates back to the 1800s.

Something new: Her parents gifted their daughter with custom-made diamond oak-leaf earrings with a diamond-encrusted acorn set in the middle, a nod to their new family crest.

Something borrowed: Kate’s tiara, on loan from the queen herself, per royal wedding tradition, is a 1936 Cartier “halo.”

Something blue: We can’t see it, but a blue ribbon is sewn into the interior of her dress.
