Debenhams has created a replica of Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress – which women across the UK fell in love with instantly.
Now, brides-to-be can snap up the classic design or buy a few of the dresses for their bridesmaid, at a fraction of the cost of Middleton’s original.
According to Dailymail.co.uk, the dress will go on sale at only £170 in April 2012 – £1,830 less than Middleton’s. It may inspire those with upcoming nuptials to go the whole hog and base their entire wedding on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s – dressing the wedding reception venue with trees, just as they did.
Anxious brides-to-be can put their name down on a special waiting list soon, allowing them to reserve one or more dresses ahead of the launch. Furthermore, they could also snap up a replica of Middleton’s evening dress she wore to the Royal reception.
Based on Middleton’s infamous emerald Alice Temperley dress, the design will retail for £99 and could provide an excellent choice for brides to change into, come their evening do.
A spokesperson for Debenhams, personal shopper Alain Mehada, explained why the retailer took the decision to design similar gowns.
He told Telegraph.co.uk: “The ivory dress worn by Pippa is the most requested by far. Both men and women everywhere were instantly talking about Pippa, so naturally brides-to-be will want to emulate her classic look – both for themselves or their bridesmaids.”
Furthermore, fellow Debenhams employee, designer Russell Fish, proclaimed: “We have taken the best of the dresses and added our designer twist. Now you can get the Middletons’ look at high-street prices.”
