I remember Andrew & Sarah's (I would have been 11 years old) more than Charles & Diana's (I would've been 6 years old). It's possible my mom woke us up to watch it - at least she claims she did.

I woke up early and saw both weddings of Princess Diana and Ferge. I'm a year younger than Diana and 3 years younger than Ferge.

Sadly I didn't get to see either one cause I wasn't born yet but they're two of my favorite royal weddings ever and I'm prob in the minority who actually still likes Diana's dress very much.

I liked both wedding dresses of Princess Diana and Ferge. What I didn't like was the train (much too long). If my memories is correct about 3 or 4 girls and women in the bridal party had to make sure that this train wasn't step on or messed up.

It WAS very 80's. They used to do that sort of thing like Elvis' death. Remember that?
Last time they ran footage all the time was Princess Diana's death. Russo pulled an all nighter on that one.

.

Was there a pre-wedding ball/dinner? And are there some pictures available?
I read somewhere that there was a black tie event the night before the wedding, but I'm not sure... Can anyone confirm?
Thank you!

I agree that Diana's dress was the worst of all.Those puffy sleeves and long train were terrible. IMO But the tiara looked lovely and regal.

Thank you for those links. As for Diana's dress in my opinion and I know a few people here feel the same I felt that it was appropriate for the time period but by our standards now it just looks dreadful, though there are also people who didn't like it from the start which is okay cause everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Cool

At the time of the wedding, Diana's dress was beautiful I thought at the time. My sister didn't like it and I was horrified. Many years later I can say that I'm not that wild about the gown, yes, the sleeves are atrocious. In 1981 Diana was 19-20 yr. old and she was the fairy tale princess so a fairy tale dress was in order for her. It was indeed appropriate for the times.

I think the dress is very pretty, although when I have an actual ceremony (I had a civil wedding) I want to wear a strapless dress I think.

Cool

Most of the European Royals attended except the King and Queen of Spain due to the fact that Charles and Diana were going to visit Gilbraltar on their honeymoon which has been a sore point between England and Spain for many years. I don't think any of the Lichtenstein Royals attended, but I can't be sure. If someone else can add to my info, please feel free and correct me if I'm wrong.
