I have to add the Duchess of Kent's dress to my favorite's list. I have only just discovered it and am in love with the fabric. Though I admit the neckline isn't my cup of tea the rest of the gown is stunning. Check it out at The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: The Duchess of Kent's Gown

I just discovered this one a few days ago and I agree that it needs to be mentioned. It is very beautiful and I wish a famous modern bride would wear it so we can get better pictures.

My favorite overall looks:

The Duchess of Cornwall on the day of her marriage to The Prince of Wales. Great outfits and headpieces - the best she had ever looked in my opinion.

The Crown Princess of Sweden - I would say she had one of the more boring wedding dresses, but her whole ensemble with the tiara and veil were a knockout.

Sarah, Duchess of York - Another British Royal bride I would say looked her best ever on her wedding day. Though I have qualms with her dress (the "A" on the train *shudders* so tacky), she made a beautiful bride.

:giggles: I just have to say that ever since I saw that picture that Super Baroness used for her avatar I have thought that William is posing for a boyband picture.

I think he's pushing out his lips to keep the strap of his hat in place! Which makes for quite the picture. I laugh every time I look it!

That gown is sooooo stunning isn't it?? I don't know why it is so overlooked...it is straight out of a medieval fairy tale. It's beautiful!

IloveCP...I feel the same way about Fabiola's gown...it's gorgeous but I would not wear it because...well...it looks like something only a QUEEN or someone on a movie set would wear!

Which woman got married first, Margaret or Katherine, Duchess of Kent. The gowns look like they had similar styles of skirts; so I wonder if they were inspired by each other.

Margaret married first, in May of 1960...then Katharine Worsley followed one year later in June 1961.

That era of bridal gowns had very big bouffant skirts as well as hair styles!

I'm surprised, for some reason when I think of the 60s I think of hippy wedding dresses, or was that the 70's? Either way a royal couldn't get married in that kind of gown.

I agree with you COUNTESS.

I think Kate was a beautiful bride, but there was somthing missing...she would not have looked out of place in a village church wedding.

Charlene? Can anyone see that dress at some regular parish church with it's magnificent diamonds, crystals and 20 foot court train?

That is how a Royal bride should look, imo.

Still Catherine is among my favourite brides, she was dressed as how a proper bride looks in my eyes.

Charlene, not so much. There was something missing for me and I don't like how her veil was positioned.

Yes, Kate was lovely, but her train was too short, something was missing. You are right, moonmaiden23, Charlene was "royal". Very elegant. Very simple.

Well, that's what opinions are for - they can be the same or differ .

Charlene was too simple for me - the same story as Princess Victoria. I do like the embroidery on the front of her gown, but that is not enough for me. To each his/her own, I say .

Catherine was the best for me, it looked like a wedding dress to me. I liked alot of the dresses various ladies wore but I liked hers the best.

I think Kate had one of the best trains out of all royal brides. Some of these women just go long just because they can, not caring if it actually goes with the dress.

For me Kate remains the more distuinguished bride then Charlene,if we take the style.But Charlene's style anyway was very graceful and suited her perfectly,both outfits reflected two brides personalities.Charlene's train was a bit too long I think.
