So you couldn’t shell out the cash for tickets to London to see the Royal Wedding in April, or perhaps you weren’t invited.

But now, those wishing to catch a glimpse of the hand-embroidered Alexander McQueen wedding dress or the Cartier tiara can do so, from July 23-October 3 in London.

The dress and all the wedding accouterments, including the Queen’s 1936 tiara, the acorn-drop earrings, and custom Alexander McQueen lace shoes will be displayed at Buckingham Palace when the palace opens for its annual summer tours.

In addition, the Rolls-Royce Phantom and 1902 State Landau coach can be seen at the Royal Mews.

A spokesman for the royal duo told People that the couple is “delighted” to allow members of the public access to the wedding memorabilia.

The admission price is approximately $29—which is a steal, especially since no crazy hats are required for entrance.
