Burton said: "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. "It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created. "I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen's designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design, we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day."

When Catherine Middleton stepped into Westminster Abbey on Friday in her Alexander McQueen wedding dress, she stepped into fashion history.
After weeks of feverish speculation, the royal wedding's most closely guarded secret was revealed to the world.
The timeless gown designed by McQueen's creative director, Sarah Burton, reflected the personality and the classic style of the world's newest fashion icon.
The close-fitting lace bodice featured long sleeves and a deep-V neckline while the skirt fell from Middleton's slender waist in soft, pleated folds.
In keeping with tradition, Burton's design featured a train that was elegant enough to wow crowds outside the Abbey and as Middleton walked down the aisle.
"I think Kate looked perfect. Her dress was very timeless and very reminiscent of Princess Grace of Monaco. Kate looked exactly the way we hoped she would when she walked out of her car," said Alison McGill, the editor-in-chief of Weddingbells Magazine.
Speaking to from London, McGill said Middleton's dress will inspire several key trends.
"I think her choice to wear long sleeves signals a big goodbye to strapless wedding gowns," said McGill.
Middleton's dress also featured "controlled volume," another contemporary element sure to inspire future brides.
"The dress had just enough volume," said McGill.
"It wasn't too much or too overdone. Again, you had to think of Grace Kelly when you looked at Kate standing on the red carpet outside the Abbey and walking into the cathedral."
Many fashion insiders had predicted that Middleton would wear a sleek, body-hugging gown and thereby set a more modern precedent for royal weddings to come.
McGill always disagreed with that speculation.
"Kate's a traditional girl," said McGill.
"I love the fact that she wore her hair down, which is not usually done at royal weddings. That's Kate's style. But it's a personal choice that feels both very modern and very classic all at the same time," she said.
"I give Kate's dress a 10+."
