Kate Middleton inspires brides to spend more on looks

Research carried out by Confetti.co.uk has claimed that an increasing number of brides-to-be are opting to undergo plastic surgery before their wedding. And the amount of money being spent on what is known informally as bridalplasty, is set to rise, according to industry experts.Confetti's wedding expert Kate Thompson believes last year’s storybook wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William may have encouraged more women to go further in a bid to achieve the perfect look on their wedding day. More than half of the 5,000 brides questioned in the survey said they’d had cosmetic dental work including veneers and whitening treatments carried out before their big day. One in ten of brides said they had undergone a cosmetic treatment prior to their wedding. Botox and breast implants were two of the popular choices, the survey found. Ms Thompson said: "Bridalplasty is fast becoming a modern extension of the French manicure for brides-to-be. It may be largely down to the vision of beauty Kate and Pippa Middleton wowed us all with last year. "For a great many modern brides, the wedding becomes a catalyst for those who have something that bothers them about their appearance." One leading cosmetic surgery firm has reported an 11 per cent year-on-year increase in liposuction operations, its most popular pre-wedding treatment.
