How could you possible forget “Dress the Royals – Wedding Edition”? Available on iTunes – – this app was recently voted #3 in Telegraph UK Top 10 Wedding Apps! Beautifully illustrated, this electronic paper doll app is pure entertainment. My little princess has had so very much fun with this one, that it’s no wonder to me that it ranked so high! We e-mail each other our creations throughout the day – which is always great fun! There are over 40 outfits – including 4 wedding dresses and 3 dress uniforms – that can be placed on each member of the Royal Family, along with really great accessories (including tiaras, sunglasses, beards, mustaches and a variety of hats – plus more). There are a variety of backgrounds and soundtracks to choose from to make each creation unique. Download and enjoy!
