Wish List: ZOMG Kate Middleton Just Say Yes To These Dresses!

You guys, it's T-minus 50 days until Kate Middleton, princess-to-be, walks down the aisle and even though we're pretty sure she's on fitting number 109,939 of the (likely Alexander McQueen-designed) dress by now, we have opinions! The whole rigamarole of the impending royal wedding (we ordered our thimbles and tea cozies aaaaaages ago) has us on flights of nuptial fancy and we'd lovelovelove to see the future Mrs. William Arthur Philip Louis in any of these dresses on her big day. Let's go.

FOR THE SUPER-FORMAL CEREMONY:

Bruce Oldfield

Bruce Oldfield was an early contender when Kate and her family reportedly spent some time at his London shop earlier in the year. Coincidence? Doubtful. Bruce's gowns are sleek, feminine and fuss-free (exactly how we'd describe Kate in three words; we're, like, this // close with the girl). Another random-cool fact about Bruce: In 2008, he redesigned McDonald's staff uniforms in Britain. Yes, seriously.

Super-formal ceremony (top, left): Lace is hot, so are belts/sashes. Aaaannnnd, we know how much Kate loves her V-necks. Modesty is tradition for royal wedding ceremonies, so Bruce would have to go easy on the neckline and elongate the sleeves but how chic would that be?

Equally-staid party (bottom, left): This strapless, airy gown has just the right amount of drama and functionality for a royal dance fest. And by "dance" we mean, "sway" and/or "nod acknowledgements."

Alexander McQueen

Sarah Burton unveiled her fall/winter 2011 collection for Alexander McQueen, and lo and behold, it was full of wedding dress look-alikes—structured silhouettes, exaggerated skirts, embroidery, and feathers—fueling the speculation that she'd be the lucky royal wedding dress designer.

Super-formal ceremony (top, middle): Naturally, Sarah would have to sew in some sleeves (maybe an ethereal mesh?), but zoinks, this embroidered and pleated high-collared masterpiece would definitely elicit serious rubbernecking.

Equally-staid party (bottom, middle): In this futuristic halter dress with an embroidered and feathered skirt, all eyes would be on the new princess during the royal reception. Cake? What cake? Oh, thaaaat cake. Yum (who are we kidding? Dress only nearly trumps cake.).

Marchesa

London-born/New York-based designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are the go-to girls for Hollywood A-listers who love making a red carpet entrance (erm, that would be everyone...). The duo's dramatic evening gowns are modern, photo-ready and simply gorgeous.

Super-formal ceremony (top, right): This romantic lace and tulle dark ivory dress is feminine, but not too girly-girl. The neckline is RIDIC.

Equally-staid party (bottom, right): How could Kate not make an unforgettable entrance in this uber-plumed strapless ball gown?
