Royal Wedding Bridesmaids and Page Boys

While all the world gazes at Kate Middleton and Prince William's attire at their April 29, 2011 wedding, we kept a close eye on the littlest members of the royal wedding party - the bridesmaides and page boys.

What little girl does not dream of growing up to oneday become a princess?  Millions of little girls across the world watched the amazing day Kate Middleton's four bridesmaids and two page boys had.  The bridesmaid dresses and page boys's suits were beautiful.  Each bridesmaids dresses were made by Nicki Macfarlane.  The white dresses were all handmade with English Cluny lace and featured dark cream sashes, tied at the back with a large bow.

Their hair flower arrangements were made by Kate's florist Shane Connolly.
Satin Mary Jane pumps studded with Swarovski crystal on the buckles that were made by Devon-based Rainbow Club completed the bridesmaids' look.

The pageboys were dressed in red tunics of a Foot Guards officer, similar to Prince William's formal Irish Guards attire of a red jacket with gold braiding.
The uniforms, including William's were designed by Kashket and Partners.
