The fabrics are rather cheap to be honest.

Probably not for her body (more for the tall, willowy build) but this is sooo gorgeous. And I'm a Marchesa hater first class.
As featured in UK Vogue May 2011: http://www.glamcheck.com/fashion/201...edding-belles/ The second pic. Although the first Elie Saab is rather awesome too.

Yes, you are very correct.

Just looked at some of the Vera Wang gowns, nice, but dreary. Not Zara, at all. The Kate Moss gown looks like an old nightgown. Yuck!!

I love some of those dresses in those links. These days many women get married in strapless dresses in churches. If she needs to cover up there is always a shawl or bolero. It depends on how relaxed the church she is getting married in is and her wants. I think she will wear something modern and young because he is and strapless wouldn't surprise me! I think she will look lovely and would love her hair to be up.

^ ^ Thank you for posting the article Wymanda.
Looking at his website it looks like he has some nice designs. He wouldn't be a bad choice if it's true she has chosen him.

Cuts of his dresses are quite nice but when it comes to designs they aren't anything special. Zara doesnt seem like a person who would have an overtop wedding dress. I think she will keep it very simple.

I think it will be very plain and simple no frills.

I agree. I can't see her with frills, but with some clever, unusual ornamentation. Having said that, she doesn't really need any ornamentation - her face provides that.

No, I think Zara's wedding dress should have at least some embroidery and/or beads and sequins here and there or it would look to plain and ordinary.

Very simply, a short veil waiting Zara's model. And I guess you do not use the crown.

We don't have long to wait. I just hope she doesn't step out of character and wear a marshmallow.

A while back I mentioned a wedding suit. Some said that was OK for a second wedding or an old woman. Scroll down to the first photo and see my interpretation of a wedding suit. BRIDE CHIC: SUIT CHIC

I think Victoria of Sweden's outfit might suit Zara too...

Kitty, I am afraid to ask, but what does a marshmallow wedding gown look like?

I am not being sarcastic as I know nothing about fashion and even less about wedding gowns.

I just hope she picks something that does not overwhelm her? That we still see Zara, does that make sense?

I guess Zara's wedding dress will reflect her free personality,but will be more or less traditional as a sign of respect to the senior members of the royal family.
But I've always thought,some short or semi-short modern wedding dresses will better express her independent character ,just like these ones:

A "marshmallow" is depicted perfectly in Diana Spencer's wedding gown. It's not a derogatory description, just very fluffy and puffy.

The suits were hideous. Just becuase you throw a jacket over a gown, doesn't make it a suit. I hope you has someone who can create something lovely for her.
