We're dying to know what Kate's wedding dress will look like, but the ensembles she's worn as a wedding guest might provide some clues about what she'll wear to her own.

While Kate typically wears more subdued styles, the ensemble she wore to the 2009 wedding of Captain Nicholas Van Cutsem to Alice Hadden-Paton made a bit more of a statement. Again, she chose a brocade pattern—a particularly regal fabrication that could work on a wedding gown. The coat also features a fitted natural waist—highlighting Kate's trim figure.
