Just looking at wedding pictures of William and Kate, and I'm surprised at how much her dress has grown on me. I thought as elegant as it was, it was kinda underwhelming. Now, just looking at pictures, I can see and appreciate all the detailing in the lace and skirt, the buttoning all the way down the back and the details in the train - where it attaches to the skirt and how it is pleated and the embroidery. Just seeing how they were here on tour in Canada and the easy way they had with each other and the crowds I now feel the dress was totally her. Not fussy, but simple. She could have gone for something grander, dramatic, and with more "oomph", but she went with something more timeless, classic as well as something she looked comfortable in. I can't count how many times I've seen a bride look uncomfortable (yet gorgeous) in her dress!!.

I wish I could make it to London to see her dress (and everything else on display!) before the exhibit closes.

I would say Catherine's but it was very similar to those of Grace Kelly & Isabella Orsini, so it seems unfair to act as if it was original. I personally love Princess Margaret's wedding dress.

Princess Royal, I agree with you concerning Princess Margaret's wedding dress as I've always thought it the most beautiful to date. Catherine's was gorgeous, IMO, too.

My favorite wedding gowns from the older generation of royal brides are:
1. Princess Grace
2. Princess Margaret
3. Queen Margrethe
4. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa
5. Katherine, Duchess of Kent
6. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

From among the younger generation of royal brides, I really like the gowns worn by:
1. Maxima
2. Mette-Marit
3. Marie (although it "collapsed")
4. Catherine
5. Charlene
6. Letizia (although the dress itself failed to complement the bride)
with an honorable mention to Diana, Duchess of Cadaval.

As for the most beautiful, I think Maria Teresa was the loveliest royal bride. The love and joy and goodness on her face painted such a lovely bridal picture, made all the more beautiful with time!

Is the Marie you are talking about the wife of Prince Joachim? If so I have never seen her dress.

I think Princess Margaret would have loved Catherine's dress. Stylish and very regal at the same time. Kate's dress was almost similar to hers but without the volume.

For modern royalty I would have to say;
  1. CP Victoria
  2. CP Mette-Marit
  3. Princess Charlene
Victoria for the grandeur of a Queen.
Mette-Marit for the fairytale romance.
Charlene for the elegant romance.

The one and the same! There is a thread on the wedding in the main wedding section of the forum.

Favourite Royal Wedding dresses

I love analyzing and looking at Royal Wedding dresses, and this is a good snap shot of some of the best. Does anyone know more about Sophia Magdalena, Queen of Sweden?? She was quite an opulent dresser!

What are your favourite royal wedding dresses? Here are ours… « The Royal Post

Just to warn, the mods are probably going to find a way to move this thread and you won't even know it happened. Just be prepared ok.
As for the list, I voted for Grace; but it was really close between her and Princess Margaret. Some of the dresses on the list are rather unattractive, i.e. Letizia and the other suit jacket wedding gown. In truth the only time I have seen that style work is on Camilla.

I think what ruins this dress for me is the tulle draping along the sides of the skirt. I think it could have been a lovely wedding dress had the tulle been used to create the fullness as an underskirt, not as part of the actual dress itself.

I think the dress just doesn't fit her properly, and I think the tiara is too ostentatious for the event. Alice's dress is part of the early 19th century wedding dresses that are so unique and beautiful; I put her in the list of a couple of Russian Grand Duchess' who had dresses like that and they were all so beautiful.

The dresses I like are:
Lady Diana (Princess of Wales) It was just right for 1981.
Maxima (CP of Netherlands)
Mette Marit (of Norway)
Catherine Middleton (Dutchess of Cambridge)
Princess Margaret of GB
Serena Stanthorpe (married David Linley)
Lady Thresa (A german aristocrat who was married in a winter ceremony)
Victoria Lockwood (married Princess Di's brother)-I know people don't like this much.
Sarah Ferguson (to Prince Andrew) she looked her best that day.
Marie Chantal-It is on the verge of overwhelming her. But has beautiful details.
Marie of denmark: Beautiful on her.
Claire of Belgium


Worst dress
Princes Mabel-Is there anyone that likes this?
Princess Letzia- Could have been amazing but the collar was bent.
Princess Mary- I love mary's style, but the dress was underwhelming.
Princess Silvia- Too matronly, almost like a hospital gown.(Queen Silvia)
Queen Noor-Too average
Princess Alexandra of Denmark: Too fluffy on her small frame.
Princess Victoria-Too much like her mother's w/ same problem.
Sara Chatto:Almost beautiful, but just a little on the martronly side.
Zara Phillips: Poor cute and fabric for her body type.
