It's not as though she could have shown up in a big white, puffy dress. However she looked impeccable for both of the ceremonies. I've yet to come across anybody who disliked her outfit.
In fact I was so impressed with the outfits I actually started losing my distaste for her.

I still think Mettte Marit's dress and flowers were unique and very creative but my all time favourite would have to be Princess Margaret's- I think anyone could wear that in any era.

Nice thing about all royal brides is that the dresses have sleeves and they don't look like evening dresses. They are all specially created for a regal event- not a night out.

The best royal wedding dresses are simple and elegant. A dress can be simple with understated beading etc without being plain and it must be elegant and regal reflecting the royal role. Also a royal wedding dress should be timeless never dating the best example of this is Princess Margaret and also Princess Letizia as they could be worn in 50 years time and still look modern!!
Recent examples of the ideal dress are Letizia (so elegant and gracefull with the right amount of detail not to overpower her. the veil and the jewellery complimented the dress perfectly and the overall look was serene like princess grace), Maxima (perfect dress for a winter wedding with beautiful insets of lace panels), Mette-Marit (pure, simple and elegant which reflected her understated charcter)
Lady Sarah Chatto is another example of the perfect royal wedding dress, also Lady Helen Taylor and Viscountess Linley are excellent example of how to dress for your own wedding.
Older examples include Princess Elizabeth (having seen the dress in the exhibition at Kensington Palace i feel in love with this dress - it was so regal for a future queen and the detail is a piece of artwork. it is one of the best british wedding dresses) also Princess Margaret (so elegant, timeless and very simple which made it so striking) Princess Grace of Monaco (her dress was possibly the most beautiful of all royal wedding dresses)

The wedding dress is the first important dress of a royal bride (particularly if they are non-royal) as it creates the first impression. So if Kate should marry William then she will have to be careful in choosing her dress so that it is memorable (who really remembers much about Sophie's dress as it was so plain, boring and very unremarkable!!)

And a more recent bride who looked spectacular: Infanta Cristina of Spain.
Royal brides who looked wonderful on their wedding day is HM Queen Elizabeth II and the late Diana,Princess of Wales.

I share totally your opinion. I don't know is the Letizia's wedding gown is the most elegant one but it's the most regal one, full of symbols about the Royalty and it was totally appropriate for the situation.

It was not a jet set wedding but a royal one, that some people had found so boring because too serious

Every beautiful and rich woman can have a wedding gown like Maxima ( absolutly stunning) even Mary who looked more "Alice in wonderland" than futur Queen of denmark wasen't so regal than her mother in law, the Queen Margareth who had choosen the simplicity.

BEST:
Lady Sarah Chatto
Mette Marit of Norway
Maxima of the Netherlands
Grace of Monaco
Letizia and Cristina of Spain

NOT MY FAVOURITE(I think all brides look lovely on their wedding day)

Mary of Denmark-the sleeves made her look like a milkmaid
Marie Chantal of Greece-far too heavy for such a petitie frame
Diana-way too much of everything, but she pulled it off
Princess Caroline to Phillipe Junot- very country, much too sedate. But she looked beautiful.

Without a doubt CP Sarah Al-Billah of Brunei everything about the wedding and attire were exquisite and immaculate and not to mention

Princess Noor Al-Hamzah of Jordan the takchita she wore was magnificent.

CP Maxima looked absolutely divine, everything even the minutest detail splended.

CP Mary of Denmark, chic and the best of Danish Brital couture.

Princess Rym, I love the Circassian attire that she wore as an attestment to her heritage. Brilliant and she looked radiant.
