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!

Although Kate had to adhere to some very strict rules regarding her dress’ appearance, she still managed to keep her look youthful and fresh. Here are a few of our favorite Kate styles:

The Royal Wedding introduced us all to the neutral wedding party look that has become so popular. If you loved the look or style of the Pippa Middleton bridesmaid dress for either a bridesmaid dress or even a bridal gown, consider any of these styles:

The Kate Middleton reception dress: similar styles

We loved the reception dresses, as the sisters were able to express their own personal styles a bit more freely. The Kate Middleton reception dress was so very “Kate,” especially with her addition of a soft sweater. A small selection of designers created their own versions of the Kate Middleton reception dress, and we think they nailed it! Here are a few of our favorites:

The Pippa Middleton reception dress: similar styles

Pippa Middleton’s dress was to die for, with its slinky silhouette and gorgeous emerald color. If you or your bridesmaids want to rock a sultry gown like the Pippa Middleton reception dress, go for it!  However, you may be looking for a style that’s a bit more universally flattering. In either case, here are some styles comparable to the Pippa Middleton reception dress:
