Some of my favourite recent wedding dresses:

1. Farah Daghistani, daughter of Princess Basma of Jordan. I thought the dress was very pretty, classy, and feminine. (pictures from Petra)


2. Princess Haya - understated elegance. I've never seen Haya look this radiantly beautiful. (Pics from MGA Productions)


3. Princess Rym - this dress is very unique. This is the prettiest Rym has looked to me. Im not a huge fan of her style sense but her wedding dress was lovely (Petra & DPA)


The first time I saw CP Mary's dress, I found it beautiful. But looking back now it fails to make an impression. Infact in my opinion both Mary and Letizia's dresses didnt live up to the huge hype and expectation surrounding their weddings. I've seen prettier dresses at some of the recent dutch weddings.

my post is influenced by western culture, the third brid looks like a nun, the fabric is very pretty but I don't like the dress's style

I have heard people talk of Queen Margrethe's wedding, so I trawled throguh theb old threads to find it and I see what all the fuss is about! It's very simple and elegant!

Oh, I see. I don't like all of the long sleeved looks, but I agree that one does not need to see the brides boobies popping out of her wedding dress. I personally have fallen in love with wedding dresses with lace boleros or jackets covering the bodice. I guess that's kind of between leaving shoulders bare and wearing long sleeves.

I have to say my fave, Maxima had the most beautiful dress:) . She looked so amazing and timeless. Valentino did a great job.
I liked Infanta Cristina's as well--the neckline was beautiful. I also likes Mathilde and Letizia's. They were very similar in sillouette and suited their wearers beautifully. MM's dress suited her very well. It was so simple and didn't distract from her. And it was not an easy design for a woman to wear.

My non-favorite dresses were Mabel (too too busy). Though I know Viktor & Rolf are considered the height of "fashion". Mary seemed overwhelmed with the skirt of her dress (which didn't match the simple bodice) and the hair was rather distracting for me(middle parts are not a fave of mine) wasn't the best look for her features.

We should start a thread for Mabel's horrendous wedding dress alone, Luana is gonna need so much therapy to leave that behind that she'll never want to look a tux again (for the bow thing)

I hate to say it but Diana's. It was really not a very attractive dress but it is still so memorable. I still remember her going up the aisle and that train behind her. It was a fairytale day wasn't it?

I love Alexandra of Denmark's wedding dress. Especially with the snow as a backdrop when she arrived at the church.....its the prefect winter wedding dress. I just viewed a site dedicated her today....she looked beautiful and you could see the love in both her and Joachim's eyes. Still can't believe they are divorced!

Okay, here are my top 5:

1. Princess Grace
2. Francesca Thyssen (marrying Karl von Habsburg in 1993)
3. Märtha Louise
4. Letizia
5. Sophie Wessex

Here are some pics of Francesca, it looks like a fairy-tale-dress, close to the border of Edelkitsch, but I somehow like it.

My favorites are:
1. Infanta Cristina of Spain: everything was perfect; dress, tiara, jewelry, make up and husband
2. Queen Margrethe of Denmark (her hot hubby was the best accesory )
3. Grace Kelly: how can one person be that beautiful and elegant, still a mystery to me

Princess Claire and Princess Maxima were very beautiful as well!

Of the older brides I loved Queen Fabiola, Princess Margaret, Queen Margrethe and princess Irene of the Netherlands, but Fabiola is my absolute favourite! Such a great and timeless dress!

The modern brides, eh well... that's difficult. I liked a lot of dresses. I adored Maxima's of course, but I also think Laurentien looked great on her wedding day (she should wear Natan more often :p). Claire is a great favourite of mine too, as was Infanta Cristina. Very difficult to say which if them looked the best. I think I would have to go for Claire too.

(So my favourite brides stay within de Belgium royal family...)
