The gown itself was actually quite nice; while not my favourite, it would definitely not feature in "hate" list too.
But the train... Those bows were just too much.

It is exquisitely crafted, the material is gorgeous, it is unique (to say the least) and like I said, I feel this is the ultimate example of a wedding dress reflecting the bride "to a t"!!!

Mabel's dress was beautiful except for the huge bows on the train and she looked so happy on this day. Her tiara sparkled and suited her perfectly. But the best dress was AD Francesca's Versace dress this was a dream come true and of course HGD Stéphanie's Elie Saab dress. That was perfection.

Yes, I agree, the train bows were overkill LOL!!!! But the rest was very nice. I agree about Stephanie's dress - classic, gorgeous, beautiful

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: 2012 in Review: The Weddings

My favorite royal wedding dress of the year has got to be Stephanie's amazing wedding dress! Carolina's gown comes in second. Not really impressed by the other dresses. Can't wait to see the wedding dresses in 2013!

I thought Marie looked beautiful on her wedding day. I liked her dress alot. She may not be in my top wedding dresses but she not in the bottom either.

Stéphanie's was my favourite gown too but Carolina's come in as a close second.
I can't wait to see how Madeleine and Claire's gowns will be next year.

Dear Eve and Andolini,
Thank you for speaking your mind, even though some will vehemently disagree with you, which is also fine. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I am impressed, that in spite of the overwhelming dislike of Mabel's dress, you stated your views. It makes the Forum all the better for it. Actually, without the unending number of Bows, I would have liked the dress also..... But Stephanie's dress.....Hhhmm, just Love it!
The only dress that comes close to that, is a Gorgeous gown worn by one of the Spanish Infanta's. I will post a picture later, and perhaps one of you clever girls can tell me which of the Infanta's wore it. It is one of THE most gorgeous dresses, I feel.

Do you mean Cristina?

This is one of my favourite bridal looks ever, too. She never looked better, IMO.

Dear Annie,

I really like that Gown one as well! But I don't think this one (Christina's) is the one I am referring to. I will try and post a pic. Hugs,

Here a picture of the Dress in question. It is really lovely I feel; very full and with an absolutely Divine Train, which is also very full and gorgeously long.
I would love to know who the infanta was that wore it. In the picture below, it is the third dress from the front. The one nearest the camera, is Christina's I believe, which is also really Gorgeous.

or this one, again, the third dress along:

Same here. She didn't make my Top Ten, but she looked very beautiful even though I think she went too far in the tanning salon-she looked dark orange.

Her veil and hairstyle were particularly beautiful, imo.

That´s Elena´s dress
I haven´t been able to find a decent picture of her wearing the dress, only this one:
http://imagenes.publico.es/resources..._boda465gd.jpg

The train was lovely, but I´m afraid the rest of the dress is way too much 90´s for my taste. I still prefer Cristina over the rest of Spanish royal brides.

Elena's dress train is gorgeous, and she looked the best she has ever looked on her wedding day

After watching the complete wedding video of Victoria and Daniel I have come to the conclusion that I think Crown Princess Victoria looked the most perfect of all brides on her wedding day. The dress perfectly suited her body shape and character, the tiara+jewellery, veil and hairdo were wonderfully coordinated as well as the bouquet. Not too much, not too little. Plus the main feature, to me, she was the one and only bride (that I watched at least) who was simply bubbling over with happiness on her wedding day and not afraid to show it.

I liked just about everything about Stephanie's dress; but I though she needed better undergarments/corsetry. She looked extremely unsupportedly buxom, imo.
