What Should Katie's Wedding Dress Look Like?

10/12/2006 at 10:26 AM ET

Following a highly public— and publicly scrutinized — courtship, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are getting close to tying the knot. And as reported in the PEOPLE.com news story, Katie told us she already has the dress. We’re dying to know what it looks like and who designed it. Was it Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, and that’s why she and Posh were front row? Was the Giambattista Valli gown (left) a warm-up for a white version? Are the rumors that she flew to Milan to pick her dress up from Armani true? Tell us: What do you think Katie’s dress should look like? Should it be old-fashioned or modern? Sleek or decadent? Let us know!

Katie….I’ve always liked you in Dawson’s Creek !! I hope you and Tom work out and last forever. Only one thing, this is YOUR DAY when you get married and Tom should have no say in what YOUR DRESS should look like. Please remember to stay true to yourself and be a woman who can make up her own mind no matter what. As long as you feel good at the end of the day that is all that matters. I wish you guy’s the best !!!!

who cares what she wears? SHe wont be reading this because Tom will be picking out her wedding dress, as well as dictating the rest of “Kate’s” married life with him

Katie and Tom are abeautiful couple. This is their wedding, NOT anyone elses!Whatever dress she picks, I am sure shewill reflect her love for Tom and the road they are travelling down together. If I was Katie, I would pick something old-fashioned with a tiara to hold her veil. It would be long and flowing with a scooped neck and a very long train. Her sleeves’d be long and cover the top of her hands and then Button up.Katie will look like the princess she is in anything and she’ll be breath-taking. Of that I am sure.Also the hand sewed pearls and her hair would be up with ringlets framing her face.

i think katie is gorgeus and she is so beautiful with a strapless vintage light and romantic wedding dress she cant go wrong!

I think she’d look wonderful in the classic, femiine, stuff she always wears…. white, but not over the top, delicate, just beautiful…

I don’t care really if she went to Milan to pick out her dress or if it was just to buy the seasons trend, it’s none of my business anyways.

As for the wedding dress style part, I think colors are in right now; not the old plain white dress anymore, because it is boring now in this time of age. I think Ivory or cream are in, White decorated dresses with pink, gold or red trims are fabulous.

As for Katie I think she would look nice in an off the shoulder princess like gown in an Ivory tone(or white with a red trim and gold beaded sequins) made of the finest silk, I think the style and colors would be quite lovely on her.

I think she looks pretty in this dress, would look nice in white,but hope like hell she gets her teeth capped before the big day,cuz they need an over haul,,with all her cash some nice white veneers and a decent hair cut would do wonders for her appearance she is dull looking, plain not at all attractive I think Tommy could have done better and I do not even care for Tom Cruise, he’s too short, and kinda snakey looking, oh well more power to the both of them,, poor kid though gonna grow up to be a weirdo like his daddy,, hopefully she grabs the cash and runs like hell.lol
