I agree, even though Diana still was a Gorgeous Bride on account of Her Beauty and Demure Bearing. But Sarah Ferguson's Dress was more Royal as well as more elegant. The full skirt and the long train were just wonderful; the train should have been longer but it draped beautifully, I just loved it.
A more flowing and softer fabric would have made it even more gorgeous.

(Two very beautiful wedding dress wedding dress as a princess heir to the throne, but more simple and without pomp. I think she must have been more glorious)
Princess Annette

The best for me:
Princess Grace,she was a fairy tale bride,with a beautiful lace dress and flattering headpiece.
Queen Fabiola of Belgium,with lovely white mink
Sarah Ferguson
Princess Diana,in spite of the wide sleeves,she was gorgeous,like a fairy tale princess
Marie -Chantal of Greece with lovely veil

The worst in my opinion,of course:
Princess Letizia of Spain,unflattering dress
Princess Mette-Marit,too simple dress
Sophie,Countess of Wessex,a medieval style I dislike
Queen Silvia of Sweden,too simple dress

What about Princess Anita and Princess Aimee of The Netherlands. Not forgetting Prince Margaret and her daughter Lady Sarah, Tess of Luxumberg, Katherine of Kent and her daughter Lady Helen. Princess Alexandra of Kent - oh the list could just go on and on and on.

Me - I like the simple look. Queen Margrethe of Denmark.

Princess Grace with her genes and Hollywood design behind her gown. What not to like, but her headgear. I would have liked a diamond tiara. Did you know that Ms. Kelly lost weight coming over on the ship before her marriage? But she looked and was fitted well in her wedding gown.

Princess Diana's gown was beautiful for a fairy tale. Only, Diana, Princess of Wales could carry off that type of dress. Her tall genes help her carry off the dress of the Century. It was the dress of dream for every YOUNG girl in the 80's to become a princess. I wonder if the wrinkles were a prophecy of the marriage? I love Diana. She is my favorite.

The bridal gown that I truly loved, is the Duchess of Cornwall. It was a "princess woman dress" very sophisticated, sleek and wore by a older, sophisticated woman.
Loved the gown's design and fabric. A woman that was scared to marry her prince, but did so because she loved him and he loved her.

Cool

I have read that Kalina's bridal outfit was a traditional Bulgarian outfit.

My favourite is Queen Margrethe of Denmark. It is simple and just beautiful.

Crown Princess Mary's didn't appeal - she didn't look comfortable in it and he hair did do her any justice.

Princess Marie's was beautiful - her gown, hair, tiara and veil all matched so well.

Also a worthy mention:

Princess Margaret
Crown Princess Maxima
Crown Princess MM
Queen Elizabeth II - most people don't realise that since they just came out of war, fabric was still rationed, and that still included her.

I'm looking forward to when Crown Princess Victoria Of Sweden is married - maybe she can give me some last minute inspiration as she is marrying a week before me!

IMO CP Mary of Denmark wore the best wedding dress. I also liked Sophie's and Mette-Marit's - both simple yet very elegant.

Yes, I read that people sent her lots of extra ration coupons for her dress and for sugar and flour (for the cake). If I remember correctly, they didn't use the coupons people sent.

I'm remembering all this from The Little Princesses, by Marion Crawford, but it's been a while since I've read it.

The Emanuels said of Diana's wedding, "There will never be another day or another dress or another bride quite like that again."
