** Kate Middleton's dress [[http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/news/editor-s-picks/wedding-dress-fit-for-a-queen-1.1098745 here]] and [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/royal-wedding/8483330/Royal-wedding-Kate-Middleton-wears-Queens-tiara.html here]] is in the "fitted princess" style. With just a fair amount of lace, it's quite a SimpleYetOpulent dress.

The main reason for such dresses (''and perhaps the key to this trope over any other wedding dress'') is the notion that many women like to "feel like a {{Princess}}" on their wedding (even if she is [[RoyalBlood already royalty]]), and wearing such a dress is at least one way to carry out that wish. She's probably had this desire ever since she was a small child in her PrincessPhase. Back then she probably had everything planned out, except for who the groom was, [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend maybe]].

Now as the name indicates, this dress is likely to show up at [[HappilyEverAfter the end of]] some {{Fairy Tale}}s, or at least modern works of them. (Genuine folk fairy tales tend to skip over the satorial details to lavish attention on the villain's horrific death. Illustrated versions may show it, though.)

[[spoiler: She was to marry Jeff, her ''[[YourCheatingHeart other]]'' [[YourCheatingHeart boyfriend]], but they ultimately decided not to go through it.]]

* When Queen Ehlana marries in ''The Sapphire Rose'' (the third book of the ''Literature/{{Elenium}}'' trilogy), her gown is described as being this, including having floor-length sleeves turned back partway to show the gold fabric beneath the white. The narration even notes that those in attendance are expected to view her "not as a woman so much as a work of art." Because the wedding was arranged on relatively short notice, the groom wonders if the gown was put together by magic, which is entirely possible.
