Catherine requested her wedding gown be a combination of traditional and modern design, an effect achieved by Burton by combining classic lacework reminiscent of Grace Kelly's famous cheap bridesmaid dresses with an elegant, but clean and very streamlined modern shaping. Featuring a 2.7m train and a padded corset, the dress was crafted from lace and satin gazar, a loosely woven type of silk, and comprises of a bodice and skirt, both of which were handmade, as were the flowers scattered across the dress.

With everything going on around us and the planet entering into a really challenging phase the coolest trend for 2010/2011 is remembering that your cheap prom dresses are not about the celebration of perfection it is the celebration of love.

There seems to be a real trend away from over-abundant bling and embellishment on the bodice to cheap wedding dresses that are draped, frilled or flounced with interesting fabric that creates 3 dimensional texture.

You would be forgiven for thinking that flower girls are simply there to look adorable, but they do actually have some other duties. This is another optional role in the wedding party, but it looks adorable and is the perfect way to include a young female relative in the proceedings. It is tradition for the flower girl to come down the aisle after your ring bearer and, in the past, she would scatter rose petals on the aisle for the bride to walk on. However, with many venues expressing concern over the mess that can be made, a more modern take is to have the flower girl blow bubbles instead, hand out lollies or just walk down the aisle before the bride. Some brides like to dress the flower girl in a mini version of their bridal gown while others opt for a pretty dress to match the bridesmaid's attire.

The fact that you get to have a say in creating your dream wedding dress may be personal enough, but if you can have it made by someone you know such as a friend or relative, or even a local dressmaker, it will be all the more special. Cheap Wedding Dresses don't need to be made by high profile designers; any quality bespoke gown can be called couture.
