Kate Middleton's Dress on Display at Buckingham Palace

The Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, still known to the world as just Kate Middleton, married Prince William in April. Her wedding dress will now be on display at Buckingham Palace for the palace's annual summer opening for public tours. According to PEOPLE, starting Saturday, about 643,000 tickets will be available to tour the Palace. The tours will run until Oct. 3 and cost $28.50. (That's definitely way less than I was expecting!) A tour of the palace includes 19 state rooms, a special Royal Fabrege exhibit and a walk in the south side of the garden.

However, everyone will most be excited to view the exhibits on the wedding. Not only will Kate's ivory and white dress, created by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. stand under lights in the Ballroom of the Palace, but there are other features of the wedding seen as well. In rooms where the wedding celebrations took place, visitors will see handcrafted bridal shoes by the team at Alexander McQueen (size 8, with three-inch heels) and a replica of Kate's bridal bouquet made of silk flowers by wedding florist Shane Connolly. There will also be a film about the creation of the dress, featuring Sarah Burton. The state dining room features the tiered wedding cake, which looks almost like it did on the wedding day itself.

Wish I was in England right now! I wasn't completely obsessed with watching the royal wedding, but I saw bits and pieces. That dress was absolutely stunning on Kate! It's nice that the Palace will feature different parts of the wedding to the public who is dying to see everything. I know the tourists will eat that up!
