Default The Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown.

Beautiful Kate had the prettiest wedding dress. It was just right for her and simple and elegant and very regal.

I think it was far prettier than Diana's.

THAT was a danged perfect wedding!!

Hope they continue for a long and happy life together. I think they will.

It is a beautiful dress...simple, yet elegant. I think the comparison to Grace Kelly is spot on.

Lovely dress, lovely wedding. Much more dignified than Charles' and Diana's, which seemed like a celebrity circus at the time and deteriorated rapidly.

Unlike Diana's dress which now looks dated and out of style, Kate's dress will still look good 30 years from now because of it's simple elegance. I heard some stylist on NBC say it didn't have a "modern silhouette" and was "too traditional", but that is precisely why it will look good forever. Beautiful wedding!!!

Beautiful dress, beautiful bride, happy couple. Gracie, you and Sweetie deserve every bit of happiness you have had. May you have many more. (And Kate's dress was very lovely, too.)

Kate looked serene and elegant. Her dress will definitely be copied. Couldn't watch all of the coverage this am..had to go to work. Luckily the networks replayed the highlights of the wedding tonight.

I'm 9 months older than Diana...Diana would have turned 50 this July, and this July is also the 30th anniversary of Charles and Diana's wedding. I remember getting up really early to watch their wedding in 1981. My dad thought I was out of my mind up that early to watch strangers get married I told him "It's a girl thing." Diana died about 3 months after my mom passed away...my heart was heavy watching William and Harry at Diana's funeral. At least I had my mom until I was 36. So glad to see William happy. According to CBS, William and Kate will be living in Wales for about 2 years as William has military duty there. Best of luck to Kate and William.
