Other than the floral headdress, which I absolutely despise, Sarah was a gorgeous bride. The dress, the tiara, the flowers, everything was lovely.

I loved the bridesmaid's dresses, style and color. The hoops they carried were original and very pretty! Sarah's dress was a good fit and style for her.

I think it was a symbolic touch to her being non-royal when she entered the Abbey and a Duchess when she left. The floral arrangement was removed after the blessings. I don't remember if she had her tiara on the whole time or it replaced the headdress. I thought it was an interesting touch.

It certainly worked better as a symbol than as a decorative touch! She did look a bit as though a window box had fallen on her head on the way into church. Since the flowers were outside the veil, which was over her face, it was clear that a change was going to be made at some point so I wasn't surprised to see the tiara after the signing of the register.

Sarah's mother was a beautiful woman.

I remember thinking at the time (I was 14!) that it was a lovely dress and that I'd like one like that. Even looking at it now, if you ignore the 80's shoulder pads, it's a flattering dress that suited its wearer. Really, those shoulders sre the only thing that dates the dress.

I loved the sheen of Sarah's dress and style itself, but the bouquet of flowers was way too small. And yes her mother was gorgeous. Sarah and her mother really didn't look anything alike.

A video from YouTube: the bride enters the abbey, then walks to the altar with her father.

I concur with you, Kelly9480, I hated the floral bandana wrapped around her head.

I also loved Sarah's dress--she looked so radiant that day! The Royal Family looked so happy; I will say that I loathed Diana's polka-dot monstrosity. As for Sarah's floral arrangement on top of her head, I believe that tradition goes back to Queen Victoria, who wore a very similar flower arrangement on her head and then a tiara after the wedding--it makes Sarah's tribute to Queen Victoria touching, but it can't erase that the flower headpiece was really too big---

Another video from Youtube: the newlyweds with their families waving to the crowd on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Yep, the main part of Buckingham Palace is quite a bit older than the facade that we're so used to seeing; it's less ornate and is built from a brown stone, not that white that we're so familiar with. So photos taken in the garden looking back at the building will show architecture that doesn't look much like the front of the building.

Oh, I love seeing the footage of their wedding. It takes me back to when I was a child and I got up really early to watch the wedding with my aunt and cousins. It is too bad that this romance didn't work out. I know that a lot of people don't like Sarah Ferguson, but I have always liked her. She seems like she has a fun and friendly personality.

I liked Sarah, The Duchess of York's Wedding dress soooo much better then Diana's bc diana's look WAYYYYYYY to big for her it looked like it would fall off of her any moment it didnt flatter diana. Sarah's dress how ever was SOOOO flattering on her and it really made her look good i mean it FLATTERED Sarah's figure SOOOOOOO well unlike diana's dress.
