From the guestlist to the party at Fredensborg Castle, it says:

I have just watched the entire wedding on this website. I read much earlier in this thread is that other Royal weddings can be watched on this Danish website. Does anyone know how you find these, aside from Joachim's wedding?

AFAIK you can't even watch Joachim's 2nd wedding on DR Bonanza, not to speak of foreign weddings.
But you can see a few (not all) weddings on this Norwegian site: the Spanish, Danish, Norwegian CP couples, the weddings in Monaco and London.

Thanks for posting this link. I watched last night and enjoyed every minute. I finally was able to see Tatiana Blatnik walk into the reception!

This is clearly a case of the sketch being better than the result! I've often wondered how this dress was allowed to turn into such a disaster as it did! The top is OK, but the skirt is dated and .. hm.. 'Disneyesque'; a dress you would expect to see on Snowwhite.

HM has talked about being involved in this dress however without admitting that her judgement failed her. Poor Mary Donaldson was probably too timid to protest, if she ever felt like it.
AFAIK the designer Uffe Frank has not been commissioned for more dresses for the Danish RF.
The reason speaks for itself!

I realize that I'm probably in the minority, however I really liked the finished version of this gown. It moved with her-- especially the train which moved with her and didn't get "caught up" and tangled when she turned around.

I agree with you. While the sketch was beautiful, I've always loved the final result. I've heard a lot of people complaining that it's boring, but it's meant to be a simple, yet beautiful dress (at least that's what I believe was what Mary and Uffe Frank (and QMII?) envisioned) and I think it turned out to be just that. I don't think it's any more boring, bland or simple than CP Victoria's dress.

During their wedding reception, Crown Prince Frederik said to Crown Princess Mary, "Your radiance shone clearly for me from our first meeting."

Truly beautiful words!
Crown Princess Mary's radiance shows in each of her photographs.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Crown Princess Mary's Gown

My feelings for this gown always go back and forth. At first I loved it, and I now really dislike this gown. I'm sure those feelings will stay that way. For the elements that I love about this dress is the overall style. I really love the neckline, the skirt, the sleeves, and the waist; it was pure elegance. Her veil and bouquet were so beautiful as well. The color, the wrinkled fabric, and the train is what ruined the dress for me. Those elements were awful in my opinion. I also thought the hairstyle was too big, and the tiara was too small for her status. If the color was whiter and the dress wrinkle free, then I would have loved this dress, and it may have been one of my all time favorites.

This gown had great potential in the sketch, but finished poorly in my opinion. No doubt, one of my least favorite royal wedding gowns.

The top of the gown was good the skirt was bad. I don't think it was boring the sketch gown would have been wonderful.

I never liked this weddingdress. However the dress is not the worst part of the complete look. For me it's her hair and the placement of her veil. DREADFUL it made her look like a milkmaid. It absolutely did not enhance her looks. It made her look worse. It also put attention to her ( rather big) ears. I do not understand this, they have the best hairdressers etc.How can it be that she ended up looking lik this?

The wedding was beautiful.

Mary's wedding dress looked good on design. I loved the sleeves, and the skirt was very 'princess-like'. The dress looked wrinkled when created.
