Collector's Edition Royal Wedding Dolls by Arklu

Shop for unique gifts and personalized gifts for everyone in your bridal party at You can order custom rhinestone tank tops, towels, totes, cosmetic bags, bathing suits and more at our one-stop shop for everything wedding related – even items for princess brides. For royal wedding fans and doll collectors, a popular UK toy developer recently debuted collector’s edition royal wedding dolls.

Fashion designers, toymakers and souvenir manufacturers waited with bated breath for the royal wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine Middleton.

With all the pomp and circumstance surrounding one of the most anticipated royal weddings of the 21st century, it was only a matter of time before replica dolls of the prince and princess hit the shelves.

What do you think? Would you want to have a replica doll of you as the bride and your groom? Many couples choose cake toppers that resemble them in some respect, but this takes it to another level.

Soon after Arklu released the Princess Catherine Engagement Doll, it announced the release of the exclusive Princess Catherine Wedding Doll and Prince William Wedding Doll. London toy store Hamley revealed the new dolls on August 18 to a crowd of royal fans and toy collectors.

Arklus launched two products: An individual Princess Catherine Doll and a box set containing the Princess Catherine Doll and the Prince William Doll as a couple.

“The dolls will again celebrate the very best of authentic British fashion and design.”

For every unit sold, Arklu will donate £1 to the RNLI, to reflect the roryal couple’s first joint official public engagement to launch a lifeboat at the RNLI base at Trearddur Bay, in Anglesey, North Wales.

Okay, we admit that we were a little obsessed with the royal wedding, too. That’s why offers Kate Middleton inspired wedding earrings, along with a large selection of rhinestone tiaras and traditional veils. Look like a princess bride on your wedding day with affordable bridal accessories that resemble the real thing!

Looking to be bridal royalty on your wedding day? A veil paired with a tiara says “bride” more than any other bridal accessory.

Capture your bridal style with one-of-a-kind pieces by Bel Aire Bridal, a top manufacturer of veils and headpieces for the past 26 years.

Featured in magazines such as Brides, Modern Bride and Martha Stewart Weddings, Bel Aire Bridal’s collection also includes hairpins, jewelry, brooches, purses, cake toppers and bouquet jewelry.

Advantage Bridal, which carries Bel Aire products, recently chatted with the company team. Here’s what they had to say about trends, new products and what sets them apart.

What new trends are you seeing for brides?
Lace is becoming even more popular, while silver, pearl and crystal embellishments continue to be important.

Did the royal wedding increase demand for veils and tiaras?
Veils have always been strong, but the royal wedding increased interest in tiaras.

Which veil and tiara are similar to those Catherine Middleton wore?
We are currently developing a Kate tiara.

Has Bel Aire Bridal debuted any bridal accessories this year?
Our new line of couture jewelry, AVARA, debuted for Spring 2011 and is receiving an excellent response. This line of jewelry is made solely of Swarovski Elements, freshwater pearls and crystal quartz.

What sets your bridal belts apart? What type of gown looks best with a belt?
Bel Aire offers belts in a variety of styles – beaded, flowers, lace – and most are available in white, ivory or diamond white. A dress without a defined waistline is enhanced with a decorative belt.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
We anticipate that brides will want the total look. In addition to the perfect gown, a bride will want a coordinating veil and something for her hair whether it is a tiara, flower or decorative comb.

Below are gorgeous veils, rhinestone tiaras, hair combs, bridal hats and other wedding accessories by Bel Aire, which are available through Advantage Bridal. A little bridal envy goes a long way – have fun accessorizing!

Shoes Fit For A Princess

Bridal Shoes by Alexander McQueen Team

With all the fuss about the royal wedding dress, we forgot one of the most important accessories to a bride’s ensemble – the shoes!

“The wedding shoes were hand-made by the team at Alexander McQueen and are made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework,” according to the royal wedding website.

The heels perfectly complement the custom gown that took endless hours to create.

Kate Middleton’s dress honors the arts and crafts tradition, with a romantic design and materials true to that time – and her heels are no exception.

The exquisite details underscore the subtle designs of the dress. These gorgeous bridal shoes are truly one-of-a-kind and fit for a princess.

But, you can find your own pair that reflects your idea of a regal bride.

The Duchess of Cambridge opted for an overall classic, romantic look. Traditional brides or romantic brides can make a similar fashion statement with lace details, ivory shoes and other elements that mimic bygone eras with modern appeal.

The royal wedding rekindled bridal trends such as lace, veils, tiaras, gowns with sleeves, ivory tones and traditional with a twist.

Shop for your royal wedding accessories at Advantage Bridal, where we carry everything from royal blue wedding shoes to couture heels and rhinestone tiaras to hand-embroidered veils.
