I love the dress of Claire of Belgium...but for me, the best is the one that Maxima used.

favs:
1. Princess Grace (it's still breathtakingly beautiful, timeless, classic, nothing compares)
2. Princess Mary (very medieval, befitting a fairytale princess, and she wore it very well)
3. Princess Margaret of Great Britain (I never knew how beautiful she was until I saw her wedding photos)
4. Martha Louise (very fairytale-like, medieval, she looked like the princess she is)
5. Sophie (a little ill fitting due to her weight loss but still modern and beautiful and I loved the veil)

not so favs:
1. Mette-Marit (the dress should have been pretty but she didn't ware it very well)
2. Letizia (didn't like the collar but the dress was okay except she seemed like she was going to fall over, she looked terrified, maybe understandably, but the dress wore her, she didn't ware the dress)
3. Maxima (that collar! It ruined the dress. One good thing was Maxima wore it well which made it better than it was)
4. Diana (a mass of wrinkly awfulness)
5. Mabel (even if you take away the bows, the dress was plain. She didn't look like she was marrying a prince. But again, she didn't drown in the dress, she wore it the best she could ware a dress full of bows)
6. Princess Annette (nice idea for a dress but incomplete somehow, and it really didn't fit. It just swallowed her up)

Favorite Wedding Dresses

They are:
Queen Fabiola - the fur was a wonderful touch
Princess Margaret - the gown was made of simple, but luscious material highlighting her tiara and face.
Princess Grace - perfection in lace

More recently Archduchess Constanza in 1994 due to the line of the skirt.
:)

I loved how CP Mary looked on her wedding day. Her dress was beautiful, the make up and hair was perfect and she had that sparkling glow every bride should have on their day.

Princess Grace was the most elegant bride, she did look absolutely beautiful that day. That dress was absolutely timeless as was Queen Margrethe. Princess Claire's dress is also one of the most beautiful dresses of all times.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

I think they all made such beautiful brides, it's hard to narrow it down to just a few!
As far as the 'older' brides, I'd have to go with Princess Margaret, Princess Diana, Sarah, and Grace Kelly.
For the 'newer' I'll go with Princess Mary and Rania.
I really adore Maxima and think she's a gorgeous woman, but I didn't think she looked like 'herself' on her wedding day. Her hair was too severe for her personality or something. Like I said, I think she is truly beautiful but I don't think she shone like she could have.

I loved Letizia's gown best of all. The was very regal and classic. Her gown was a very special wedding gown, not a ball gown in white.
