How Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Was Kept A Secret

This is fascinating!

All the details on how Kate Middleton's wedding dress was kept a secret up until she arrived at Westminster Abbey are slowly beginning to surface.

Insiders say both the lace-makers at the Royal School of Needlework and Alexander McQueen seamstresses were told their work was for a movie, but wouldn't elaborate further.

The dress itself was constructed inside Buckingham Palace by Sarah Burton and a small group of helpers that were signed to secrecy. And if they were ever asked about the fashion house's involvement with the Royal Wedding they had to lie.

Ah, the classic "denial" trick. Works every time.

So much has happened for Sarah Burton in the past year, but creating Kate Middleton's wedding gown is the royal icing on the cake.

The Alexander McQueen creative director said after the big reveal at Westminster Abbey:

"It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it" she said today. It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created."

Congrats, Sarah! You did an outstanding job!

Royal Wedding Music Choice Details Revealed!

royal wedding music choice details revealed

Earlier this week, we were really excited to hear reports that Jay-Z and Beyonce might perform at the royal wedding!

Now, more details have arisen regarding the royal wedding music choice, and we've learned that Prince William and Kate will have the London Chamber Orchestra perform on their special day.

Here's what London Chamber Orchestra music director/conductor Christopher Warren-Green had to say about it:

"The couple have very, very strong ideas of what they want, and after all, at the end of the day, it is their wedding. It's a young couple's wedding, and they should have what they want."

"They involved both sets of parents – the Middleton family, as well as the Prince of Wales. And both myself and the organist and choirmaster of Westminster Abbey, of course, are here to advise and to help."

Sounds very nice, but what about Beyonce and Jay? Is that still happening? We'd like some confirmation, please!

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.
