I still want to stick with Camilla, as she probably had the most stacked aganst her when it came to her wedding day.

I agree about Camilla. She looked fantastic and proved that a wedding need not be over the top to be elegant.

Now, looking at the Crown Princesses--I do think that Mary presented the best overall picture. She was simply beautiful and classic and just exuberant. Maxima touched me greatly, and Mathilde was nothing short of perfection for the ceremony. But, for my own personal taste, Mary's gown and hair.

My over all favorite is Maxima. Elegant is the word that comes to my mind when I see her wedding pictures.

For me the best royal bride was Soraya of Iran, very nice woman, dress designed by Christian Dior and jewels by ¿Van Cleef and Arpels?

Princess Letizia was very nice in his wedding day.

Empress Farah Diba was very nice in her wedding day (the dress by YSL and the tiara by Harry Winston were impressive).

Princess Sofia of Greece and Prince Juan Carlos of Spain's wedding day was very nice too :)

Unfortunately I saw none of the recent Crown Princess's weddings live, but based on the photos alone I think I'd vote for Maxima of the Netherlands. Her gown and veil are among my all-time favorites.

Mathilde's ceremony looked very moving and emotional....and I loved CP Mary's veil....
Letizia's face looked like an angel, but unfortunately I found her hair to be a mess and I didn't like her gown at all.

Whether I'm taken by the gown or not, I think most brides look wonderful on their wedding day.

Some "older" brides who stand out (in no particular order):
- Queen Margrethe of Denmark for her regal gown
- Princess Margaret of Great Britain looked stunning and her gown was elegant
- Princess Grace was perfect, perfect bride, perfect gown...graceful, elegant, feminine, noble, beautiful
- Queen Astrid of Belgium was a beautiful bride, emanating a breathtaking innocence
- Queen Elizabeth and GD Maria Teresa both looked so happy

Some "modern" brides who stand out (in no particular order):
- CP Maxima for her radiance, lovely gown and beautiful veil
- CP Mathilde for her intrinsic feminine grace
- CP Mary for her regal comportment
- Diana Duchess of Cadaval was lovely from her joyous smile to her romantic gown
- Princess Tatjana of Liechtenstein was simple and beautiful from her persona to her gown

An old bride:
Empress Zita of Bourbon Parma:

Autumn Kelly looked great too. Finally a bride without the long sleeves.

And even though I hate long sleeves, Maxima looked radiant.

Why do most of the royal brides wear long sleeves on their wedding day?
