I agree that Cristina was the most perfect Royal Spanish bride. I didn't hate Elena's outfit, I just don't think it's elegant and timeless like her sister's.

As for Letizia, she was drowning in a dress that overwhelmed her, and her hair was just sad, imo. Only her lovely face and veil were perfect.

You are right. We can all debate the minutia of wedding dresses and paraphernalia but you would be hard pushed to find such a perfect "Bride = Dress" combination. It really did reflect the Victoria we love at her very, very best. That day we got a unique glimpse of a future queen; perfect posture, beautifully gowned yet seemingly oblivious to all the extraneous pomp and circumstance. So much so that it was almost as if we got a peek at a private wedding where the bride and groom were warm, vibrant, comfortable in their own skins, so very in love and unashamedly sharing with family and friends.

Thank you soo much Annie! I appreciate your help; And I must admit, that now that I have finally seen the front of the Dress, like you, I am not as impressed anymore as I was before..... Yes, Christina's Dress is probably no1 of the Infanta Gowns, for me too! Thanks again.

I agree Andolini; The Train is just gorgeous. But the front let's the rest of the Dress down I feel. Still, now that I have seen Elena in the Dress, I admit, She still looks gorgeous. Thanks

I agree; The Dress might have been even lovelier with a little extra support underneath; perhaps a fuller hoop with lots of layers. But heavens, what a Divine Dress.......

Oh, I agree - Crown Princess Victoria is just a wonderful, amazing future queen, and her wedding, if I had to choose one, is my favorite. As you put it so well, everything reflected Daniel and Victoria perfectly. Everything. Now with little Estelle, they are the cutest family!!!

I absolutely agree. Our future Queen was the most enchanting bride. Extraordinarie was also her wish that all Swedes should be able to enjoy all of the festivities around and including her wedding. The television coverage was un-precedented.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: January Brides

Even though I would not wear it, my only favorite here is Baroness Francesca's wedding outfit. None of the other gowns don't really impress me. I know it was a simple ceremony but Caroline's outfit is just boring.

Princess Angela's dress is simple, elegant and timeless. It would work for most figures IMO. That would be my choice of the gowns listed.

In no specific order, as I would wear any of their gowns...Victoria, Charlene and The Princess Anne.

Francesca's dress by Versace is a dream. Here she is wearing a jacket over it but I have pics of the dress and it is beautiful. I can post them later if there is some interest in it. :-)

Absolutely beautiful. The coat alone is to die for, but I also died when I saw the gorgeous gown underneath. Perfect winter wedding.

I agree it was a perfect winter wedding dress and the perfect day for it. It was awfully cold that day I think we had several minus degrees. About - 18 in the early morning as far as I remember.

Dear Andolini, do you happen to have access to a picture of Baroness Francesca 's wedding? I agree with you, from what I could glimpse: the coat is Divine, but I have not see the dress as yet. I have to laugh at your expression; "I died when....etc" I hope you don't mind me saying so....

Of course I do not mind you saying so!!!! Her dress may not be to everyone's taste, but I see it as the best of both worlds - 2 different wedding dresses!!!

Love! I always thought they were one, but that the "coat" was simply the top that buttoned off and could be removed for the bottom dress to be unveiled, but it looks like there are in fact two different dresses! Correct me if I am wrong,
