Local boutiques and bridal shops are weeks away from stocking exact replicas of Kate Middleton's wedding dress, but Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection in Pikesville has a similar dress in stock right now. The dress by Watters Brides -- a Dallas-based designer -- is available with or without sleeves. Although the dress is not an exact match -- the lace detail from Middleton's dress is missing -- the feel of the dress is there. As for the original? Robinson is in love. "I thought she looked regal," she says. "I wouldn't have changed anything about it. I thought she looked beautiful. Nothing over-shined her." Find the v-neck Watters Brides dress for $3,400 with sleeves ($3,200 without) at Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection, 1848 Reisterstown Road # B in Pikesville. Call 410-484-4600 or go to
