Laura Ponte's veil is beautiful; it looks like a better version of the Queen Mother's veil. Ive never heard of her before, but she was definitely a pretty bride.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: A Royal Wedding in Germany

I thought Felipa's gown was nice but I don't love it. I don't think it was original. Plus, I thought her tiara was awful!

I agree, this dress is nice but it does not grab me. And, although nothing outstanding or different or beyond what a non-royal could easily purchase, I think it did complement the bride and it does appear to have been well tailored. And it was - obviously - what the bride wanted. I think the dress might have been better - although still nothing new - had the lace been less flimsy or had the design been slightly different to better complement the delicate lace, which did suit the bride. I do not like the tiara at all and, unfortunately, her hairstyle did not compensate for it, although it did look better from the back.

For me there is little resemblance between this and Catherine's gown--just because a wedding dress has lace and/or a v-neck does not mean it is a copy.

My favorite that I forgot about is the Duchess of Kent's gown. The neckline isn't my favorite, but the rest is divine!! Classic and timeless.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Valentino Gowns

My favorite here is Maxima's! Her gown was absolutely beautiful! Not a fan of the rest of the gowns, even though they are Valentino. Marie Chantel's was too much. I loved the upper part of Sibilla's gown but I hated the rest of the dress. I also hated the bow's on Sophie's dress and I thought the rest of the gown was boring. The rest of the gowns are boring and nothing special to me.

My favorite Royal Valentino bride is Maxima, she was just all around an incredibly beautiful bride.

But I also love Lady Nicholas Windsor's gown. It's the first time I've noticed how truly beautiful it was!

Favorite is Marie Chantal's wedding gown. Only thing I would have changed is not make the bottom so straight and wooden. THe image for Paola de Frankopan's doesn't give a lot of detail, but it looks like a pretty gown for a simple royal wedding. Hey what kind of tiara is Countess Matilde Borromeo wearing on her head. It looks nice. As for her gown, I think it would have been great if it wasn't for the train and its strange fabric creation.

Countess Matilde. Because it's quite un-Valentino. Most Valentino dresses are awful, in my opinion. Almost on the same level as Chanel-hideous.

Which Mathilde are you talking about? because the Crown Princess of Belgium wore a dress by Natan. Maxima wore a Valentino dress.

Countess Matilde Borromeo.
She's in the list of the Royal brides whom all have worn Valentino for their wedding day.

I did not notice the link, the tiara has to be the best part of that wedding outfit.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Natan Gowns

Natan is not one of my favorites, but he has made beautiful wedding gowns. Not a fan of coat dresses but I love Mathilde's simple look. The design on Claire's dress is gorgeous. However, even though I like Clarie's dress, it's not one of my favorites as I seen a lot of dresses that are very similar to her's. While Laurentien's gown is not one of my favorites, it is interesting and it suits her.

While Claire's wedding dress was nothing remarkable, especially for a royal bride, it was the best of Natan's wedding gowns, IMO. Considering what the tailoring of his clothing is usually like, it is hard to believe that this dress was so beautiful in design and so seamless in fit...and so flattering to the wearer.

I have never liked the other two gowns--that said, I think that Mathilde's is the nicer of the two.

I cannot think of one Edward Vermeulen/Natan gown that I really, really love. Even Princess Claire's-which is the only one that comes close-looks poorly fitted and bought off the rack.

I am crossing my fingers, my toes, and even my eyes that Natan is not in charge of Stephanie de Lannoy's bridal gown.
