Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress recreated using 5,000 balloons Thelma Levett’s life is just a load of hot air. For 15 years Mrs Levett has spent her life blowing up balloons and twisting them into everyday objects. And now inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge she has even made a replica of the most talked about wedding dress in history for her daughter Vicky, 21. The balloon ‘Kate’ wedding dress has taken 5,000 balloons to create and even has replica lace sleeves that Kate wowed the public with on her wedding day in April this year. Mrs Levett, 54, who lives in Hinckley, Leicestershire, said: ‘I was really inspired when I saw Kate’s wedding dress on television. ‘I’d made a few balloon dresses before and had even had a go at making a wedding dress, so I thought I would make a replica of Kate’s. ‘It was hard work. It took four solid days of blowing up and twisting the balloons into shape. ‘But I was thrilled with the overall result. My daughter Vicky loves wearing it, although she won’t wear it outside as she’s terrified that someone will pop the dress with a pin and leave … Continue reading →
David’s Bridal is to recreate Kim Kardashian’s custom made Vera Wang wedding dress Well, of course it’s not such a surprise. After all it didn’t take long before Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen’s wedding dress by Sarah Burton when Allen Schwartz had started working on a replica of the royal wedding dress. Similarly, Pippa Middleton’s maid-of-honour’s Alexander McQueen was copied just a few days after the Royal Wedding was on sale in Sydney. Vera Wang will work in collaboration with David’s Bridal to recreate two of the three wedding dresses that Kim Kardashian wore on her wedding on August 20th. She (Vera Wang) already has a partnership with the bridal wear giant on a lower priced line of wedding dresses – White by Vera Wang. The wedding gowns are to go on sale in February.

Vera Wang once again proved that she is on top of her game with her beatiful wedding gowns she custom made for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ wedding. Kim walked the aisle in her custom made Vera Wang ball gown to say “I do” to Kris Humphrey looking much as an “American Princess” which has actually sparked criticism of the similarity of it to the one that Pippa Middleton wore on the nuptials between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Trying desperately to outdo or at least equal the Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duches of Cambridge, reportedly Kim Kardashian went not for one but two dress changes – each a $20 000 Vera Wang wedding dress. Kim’s co-maids of honour Kourtney, 32, and Khloe, 27, and bridesmaids Kendall, 15, and Kylie Jenner, 14, and Kris’ sister Kaela wore ivory gowns described by E! as ‘very Pippa (Middleton)’. A ten tier black and white wedding cake (chocolate and vanilla) was the dessert for 440 guests. Buy Used Vera Wang wedding gowns on ResellYourWedding.com Buy & Sell Used Wedding Dresses
