The Royal Wedding: Kate Middleton’s Wedding Shoes

Today, all eyes were on Kate Middleton as she fulfilled every little girl’s fantasy of marrying a prince. Today was also the big wedding dress reveal. Kate made a stunning choice of classic white dress with lace by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. The dress is classic and timeless.

You may not have seem them under her long train, but I couldn’t help but wonder what shoes she wore.  The shoes were handmade at Alexander McQueen of ivory satin and hand-embroidered at Royal School of Needlework, according to the Royal Wedding website. I have had trouble finding pictures, but a very helpful reader sent in the below picture from an Australian magazine. A big thank you!

Before the wedding, there was speculation as to what shoes she would wear. Five famous footwear designers, including Manolo Blahnik and Guisseppe Zanotti, sketched what they would have her wear.

  1. Really pretty wedding shoes! I also had white shoes with embellishments for my wedding day. Recently got married at one of best beachside DC wedding venues and bought all my wedding stuff online. I really got wonderful discounts on all my stuff.
