Since the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the fashions from the Royal Wedding have made their mark on the bridal industry. We have seen many replicas of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress and Pippa Middleton’s dress for the ceremony.
We have also seen a few lookalikes to the lesser-buzzed-about styles of the Kate Middleton reception dress and the Pippa Middleton reception dress. Now that it’s been a year, designers have had plenty of time to replicate these styles, and we love what they have come up with!

We loved the reception dresses, as the sisters were able to express their own personal styles a bit more freely.

Pippa Middleton’s dress was to die for, with its slinky silhouette and gorgeous emerald color.
