While I think PD's wedding gown had too much going on, I think she pulled it off spectacularly. It could have overwhelmed her but she didn't let it.

Oddly, although it's not one of my favorite royal wedding dresses, I do enjoy looking at pictures of it: it's such a frou-frou gown that's fun trying to pick out just how many fussy details are on it.

Also, a tidbit I don't think has been posted here: Mariah Carey's Vera Wang wedding gown--the one she wore to her first marriage to Tommy Motola--was inspired by PD's wedding dress. (Mariah's holds up much better than PD's does)

This is something I always wondered...when Diana walked up the aisle she had the tiara over her veil which covered her face, did she say her vows with the veil over her face or was it lifted?

Also on the way out with Charles the veil was obviously away from her face but not going over the top of the tiara, when or how did she manage that?

Yes, that bit had to be cut off.

The train had to be long because the wedding was in St Paul's Cathedral, a massive building, and a shorter train would have looked lost in such a huge building. I think slimmer sleeves might have looked better though.

Had Diana had a much shorter train, it would have looked lost in the massive St Paul's Cathedral, wouldn't it?

Thank you for those videos! Another user on flick called Waxbitch has quite a big collection of Diana photos which obviously inlcudes lots of Wedding and Pre-Wedding photos though you have to search through the album in order to find them which is why I didn't post any links but for anyone interested the photos are excellent quality.

I imagine it most likely doesn't taste very good..I wonder how it even looks now after so many years.
