I think this is as simple a gown as you can get; no lace, no needlework, no bows or furbelows. The veil has no embroidery but cascades beautifully around and behind Zara. The entire look suits her very well. I was so hoping she'd wear the Meander tiara and am glad to see it again for such a momentous occasion. Congratulations to the happy couple!

I noticed that Beatrice isn't wearing earings, and I don't think Eugenie is either. Don't they have pierced ears?

I agree Sophie does look wonderful.

There is hope for Princess Anne. Back in the 80's the Queen wore really dreadful clothes and especially dreadful hats. She dressed too much like the Queen Mum. She has become more stylish as she aged. Maybe Princess Anne will as well.

Zara can get away with a statuesque dress, as well as yards and yards of tull.

That older bridesmaid smiles like Mike. Does the groom have a sister?

Although she's radiant I'm not liking the dress. I think it's the fabric, looks cheap and the flowers look more appropriate for a Winter wedding. I know she's not a lacey girly-girl but I was thinking she'd surprise us with a bit of lace. I thought she'd wear a corseted, strapless gown with small train and NOT cover her shoulders in true "rebel Zara" fashion. Something like Autumn's dress but without the lace bolero and those silly bows down the back. I was also hoping she'd dip in Granny's vault for a tiara.


The York girls look decent for them and Kate looks ok but the Best Dressed so far goes to Sophie! She's also tied for Best Hat with the lady in the big orange hat.

The maid of honour is Zara's friend Dolly Maud in a dove grey duchesse satin cocktail dress with a bell shaped skirt.

Zara's bridesmaids are Stephanie Phillips, Dolly's daughter Nell; Jaz Jocelyn (friend's daughter), Hope Balshaw, (best man's daughter).

The bridesmaids' dresses were designed by Sue Palmer. The page boy is Dolly's son Ted - Zara's godson - wearing a Balmoral tartan kilt

I think Mike has only an older brother, no sisters.

I love the look from the back with the tulle or organza "straps". Very pretty effect in combination with the veil.

Sophie and Catherine are best dressed at this wedding, in my opinion. They look classy and elegant. Not a hat person, but love both of their choices for headwear. Nicely done (kudos to Sophie for being able to walk on those insanely high heels too).

I think Zara looks beautiful. Her gown is simple, and I think it suits her. The tiara is very pretty as well. Not a fan of the brides' maids' dresses. They're just boring-looking.

I saw pics of both of them, on one of the earlier links. I think Autumns suit is light gray. It looked a bit businessey.

It's already over. All the bunch is going out the church and making their way to Holyrood palace.

Zara looks happy and the tiara suits her well. The thing that keeps throwing me off is her veil...it's a bit too wild for my taste. In the first picture I saw, it was kind of all over the place blocking the straps which made the dress look like it was strapless with a lace choker! Can't wait to see the recessional pictures.
