My favorite wedding dresses:
Mette Marit of Norway
Maxima of Netherlands
Claire of Belgium
Diana of England (it was the 80's and the dress, but now looks out of date)
Victoria Lockwood (marriage to Earl Spencer, it was very different)
Sarah, Dutchess of York (she looked great)
Princess Margaret of Britian
Serena Stanthorpe (married Vicount lindley)
Marie Chantal
Camilla of Calabria
Theresa of Austria, I hope I got her name right. She had the winter wedding in the 90's I believe.

Worst
Mabel of the Netherlands
Letizia of Spain
Mary of Denmark ( I am a big fan of her, but the dress was a major dissapointment)
Martha Louise of Norway
Alexandra of Denmark
Emanuel of Italy's French bride. I can't remember her name at the moment
Angela Brown

I'm sure there are more on both sides. But it's early in the am for me and I can't remember everything.!

ooh, I just LOVE this topic!!

1. allright, to me, the ULTIMATE wedding dress perhaps of all time, was

PRINCESS GRACE'S.

Even now, it seems nothing compared to that dress.

My runners-up favorites:

2. QUEEN SILVIA OF SWEDEN. Loved the simplicity of the dress which beautifully set off her gorgeous veil.
3. pRINCESS ANNE OF UK. What's interesting is that MAXIMA'S dress looks like kindof a copy of that dress..hmmm..
4. qUEEN ZITA OF AUSTRIA (ok, or was it Italy?) This is/was a turn-of-last-century bride, I once came across a picture, totally gorgeous!!


Worst:
1. Princess Diana's. I love Diana, but that dress..cheesy. Even then. Of course, it spawned much of the poofy fashion for the cheesy '80s, LOL!
2. Fergie's: a weak copy of Diana's overdone dress.
3. Letizia's. The dress was ok actually, but it looked too much like one of Letizia's business jackets that was tied to a long skirt! Plus, she seemed to drown in the thing, one could hardly see her. Disappointing, yes.
4. Mary's. Weirdly farmergirl-ish. She did wear it well, though, she has a great figure, could pull off worse clothes.

And last, I have to come to Mabel's defense a bit: I thought her choice was pretty brave, she had guts to show up with such an onorthodox design! And the dress in itself was actually very pretty, but those bows were a bit too much for some people, which I can understand.

I actually liked Mabel's dress except for the train. If it had been "bowless" it would IMO have been OK.

Best:
1. Infanta Cristina of Spain (absolutely regal; the gown, veil and tiara were of a timeless beauty and elegance);
2. Clare of Belgium (although this one is a bit more reckoned - so, I'm not sure if it will be considered a classic in, say, 50 or 80 years - the dress was very charming and the veil is far the most beautiful I've ever seen);
3. Princess Letizia of Spain (another timeless classic; actually, a queen's dress, no matter how many years pass);
4. Archduchess Catharina of Austria (I absolutely loved the fur details on the sleeves and the clean cut of the ensemble, although I'm not that fan of the strappless dress down the coat).

Worst:
1. Mabel Wisse Smith (really too many bows…);
2. Princess Mary of Denmark (it's a very dated dress; the skirt was too odd and wrinkled);
3. all the gowns from the 80's.

i agree with elsa. cristina and claire looked beautiful with those similar necklines althought i prefer cristina's more. about letizia it wasn't my all time favourite but it was a nice gown, the brodery and details were stunning.

i agree on the worst ones as well. mabel's was absolutely awful in my opinion. not regal or royal at all. about mary's, the top part was nice but the skirt looked really strange. didn't like the hairdo either.

i will add i the best ones: princess margaret rose, queen margrethe of denmark (my very favourite one!), princess maxima's valentino design, mette marit of norway (although i didn't like it at first as i thought it was quite disapointing for a crown princess, i like it even more day by day... a stunning train...), the princess royal anne, viscountess linley.

also, not my favourite one, but i admire the fact that she herself did it: sonja of norway's dress.

and in the worst ones: i absolutely admire rania's style but didn't like her wedding dress at all. it may have been nice at the moment but not any more- it now looks tacky. diana's isn't my cup of tea either: too fairytale-ish, the same problem as rania: not classy, may have looked good at that time but not now anymore, unlike for example queen margrethe's.

Best:
1. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
2. Princess Grace of Monaco
3. Princess Claire

Worst:
1. Crown Princess Leticia...she looked beautiful but her whole look was kind of dissapointing. I felt like her dress didn't fit her quite right.

I think it must be so difficult to be a royal bride. I got married last year and I know how hard it was for me to choose my gown, everyone had an opinion! So I can hardly imagine how I'd feel if I were a royal bride with certain rules I needed to follow and thousands of years of history riding on my wedding day!
