    (CBS) It's the one question everyone was asking, and we didn't find the answer out until the last second - but we now know the designer of Kate Middleton's wedding dress.

    The gown is a design by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen's fashion house.

    Complete coverage: The royal wedding

    "Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing," the palace said in a statement. " Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes Alexander McQueen's work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress."

    The dress is made from ivory and white satin gazar, and the bodice and skirt feature hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace. The train measures almost nine feet long.

    The lace applique for the bodice and skirt was hand-made by the Royal School of Needlework. Individual flowers were hand-cut from lace and hand-engineered onto ivory silk tulle to create the dress' unique design, which incorporates the rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock.

    The veil is made of layers of softivory silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers. It is held in place by a Cartier "halo" tiara, lent to Middleton by Queen Elizabeth II. The tiara was presented to Princess Elizabeth (now the Queen) by her mother on her 18th birthday.

    The bride's earrings, diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pave set diamond acorn suspended from the center, are by Robinson Pelham and were inspired by the Middleton family's new coat of arms. The earrings, which were made to match the tiara, were a personal gift to Middleton from her parents for her wedding day.

    I think the dress is stunning and I am so excited that she chose McQueen!
    (I do wish he were here to see it.)

    I want to see her wedding shoes! Does anyone know who designed them? Photos?

    Okay I have to admit, I didn't really care about all the Kate x William Wedding talk circulating the web but after seeing just a couple pictures, I just can't stop browsing. So beautiful.

    Her second dress is also by the designer. Kate Middleton switches into a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen Gown for the evening reception.

    What I don't like is the yellow gold band with the platinum (silver, white gold?) of her engagement ring. I think it clashes.

    I agree with you Jen, I wasn't into the whole royal wedding thing. I think the pictures are beautiful and she is STUNNING! They look great together and I hope the stresses of royalty (especially since he will be King) don't get to them. I don't think it will. They seem like they're down to earth and not so stuffy.

    I also agree with Jennifer and lils about not caring about the whole Royal wedding thing but I won't lie, I totally wanted the dress to be McQueen! And like Jennifer, I couldn't stop browsing after I saw the dress!! So funny because 2 days ago I couldn't wait for this day to come and be over! lol

    Lol we're all the same! We totally didn't care until it actually and happened and then felt though "Oh crap" moment when we got sucked in! I just hate the over-hype of things before hand.

    I am not into this Royal Wedding hoopla nonsense.

    But, Kate is definietly a very gorgeous woman and an absolutely beautiful bride!

    Kate looked beautiful. I was more fascinated by the tiara lent to her by the queen and by Kate's reception gown.
