Royal Wedding Montages

Welcome to the April 2009 Informal Picture of the Month Poll showcasing
Royal Wedding Montages

In this month's poll we have montages of images from Royal Weddings.

The monthly informal polls will highlight the un-official/historical and rarely seen side of royalty as opposed to the formal side of royalty.

The informal polls will consist of pictures that show a royal or some aspect of royal life historical or present that is more candid than our formal polls.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for future polls you can contact Dazzling, LadyK or Empress.

This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.

Belgium: - Marengo, stephanievl, LadyLeana

Britain: TheTruth - jcbcode99

Brunei/Malaysia/Dubai/Morocco: Humera - Warren

Denmark: GlitteringTiaras - Jessrulz, Princess Robijn, Madame Royale

Greece: Rhapsodybrat - Odette

Japan: Dragonsfire8, Al_bina

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Liechtenstein: HRH Kerry

Luxembourg: Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - radker18,

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, Carlota

Spain: Paty - Lula

Sweden: Iceflower, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien

The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on 31 May 2009. During this time, we ask that NO ONE STATE WHOM THEY'VE VOTED FOR so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. After the poll closes you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

Please note that the links in the above poll have been posted in random order and do not reflect the opinions of the moderating team.

Enjoy and have fun!

Dazzling, Empress & LadyK

When it comes to montages, are we to choose our favorite based on pictures, the quality of the montage, or the memory of the wedding itself? Either way, I'm having a hard choice deciding.
