This is a gown that has "grown" in favor with me over the years. For a time I thought it was too heavy, too plain, too severe, and I didn't think it was at all flattering to the petite Margaret. After a time I became a little more discerning about the style-especially the flaring bell-like skirt that emphasized her tiny waist-and realized it was very fitting for her. Sometimes it's good to get old and take a second (or third!) look at things!

This gown easily finds itself in my top five, so I am so pleased to see it featured here. For me, everything about Margret's bridal look, from head to toe, was spot on - beautiful, regal, classic, timeless, understated grandeur, feminine, complimentary, and so on! I have always been enchanted by it.

Margaret's gown was amazing! I thought everything was perfect. The necklace and tiara were exquisite!

Perhaps, they missed this one. The many other have made their rounds.

Princess Margaret's dress was just perfect. She is one of my absolute favourite royal brides.

For the public, her (Princess Margaret's) marriage to a commoner would lower a class barrier between the monarchy and the people and bring them closer to the throne.

Margarets wedding gown has been described as "radical". So different - no embroidery (HMQ and every bride before her). She was right - she was so small - 4'10"/4'11" - that embroidery would have swamped her. Everything about that ensemble was perfect - dress', veil, jewels. Spot on!

Hi,

I own a part of this wedding, in the form of a slice of cake. My uncle was Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdons butler/footman at the time and got a slice of boxed cake.

I have included a link to a photo.

Cheers

John
