I liked Sarah Duchess of York's wedding dress very much. Apart from anything else, it contained honey bees, my favourite creatures. Without them we would have no food...we would all die.
It was a great statement I thought, which has never been picked up upon. I often wonder if the Prince of Wales keeps bees at his Highgrove home.

Sarah's dress was a perfect one for her figure.

My understanding about the floral headpiece was it was formed in the shape of a floral tiara.....to be removed by cutting from the diamond tiara she wore once vows exchanged.....

The reason Sarah's silk duchess satin gown appeared to fit her better is that it did as she did not lose the amount of weight the Princess of Wale's lost in the two weeks prior to her wedding to the Prince of Wales. Diana's gown, though lovely in the heavyweight silk taffeta especially woven for her gown due to width requirements for cutting the train and gown's skirt, was overscaled to her immense weight loss. The other thing to consider too is that the gown's style and the setting was very much on the designer's mind. The scale of St. Paul's is immense and to just show up at all, the gown had to be designed on a grander scale. Although Westminster Abbey is very large, the doorways through the church to the altar, Sarah's gown barely fit through, and in fact, her veil almost tore, having been caught on the wood on her way to Andrew.

The other thing to consider when comparing the two gowns is also the age of the bride....Diana was very young and very naive.....and so the design reflected her mindset at that time. While I loved the satin of Sarah's gown, I appreciated the design of Diana's and the reasons for the choice.

I loved the floral tiara, and actually poached the idea for my wedding. I sure hope my guests were not thinking some of the comments I've read here!

Yes it is a lovely picture of Sarah and Andrew's wedding, the dress was beautiful and unfortunately they are not happy ending married life. Pity to them.

Thank you for the pics, Steven. Sarah looks so lovely in her wedding dress. It brought a lots of memories of the royal wedding. I watched the royal wedding on TV in 1986. They would have been married for 23 years on this Thursday, July 23th.

They would. What I can't understand is, if they're so close now, then why did they divorce? If they divorced, then why did they get married in the first place?

My take on what may have caused their marriage to fail is that Sarah was unable to adapt her natural exuberance and high spirits into the decorum expected of royalty and Andrew's long absences didn't help matters either.

I read that they spent only a few weeks together each year when they were married, due to his Naval career. That's hard enough on a marriage without the whole royalty thing.

Guys, I've removed some posts. This is a thread for the 1986 wedding, not a discussion of why they should or should not remarry.

thanks,
Warren
