For me the most beautiful Royal wedding gown belongs to Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.

Couldn't agree more!

That dress!

For many years, my favorite dress was Queen Maxima's dress. I thought it was different and timeless. Just stunning.

With that being said, Elie Sabb's creation blew me away. It was the perfect dress for a lovely young woman. She looked just stunning!

I still look at pictures of that dress, and unfortunately, I can't say the same about Princess Claire's dress. Although, Claire looked beautiful, her dress for me, didn't hold candle to Stephanie's dress. I think Elie set a standard for himself with Stephanie's gown, that couldn't be matched when producing Claire's dress. I think that many people will always compare the two dresses, like myself.

As I said,Stephanie's dress is just breathtaking!

After going back through the October brides again, I noticed that the lovely dress that Princess Aimee wore, is quite similar to Queen Maxima's! I don't know if her dress is a Valentino gown or not, but the high neckline, the sleeves, and fabric, but they sure are similar!

Princess Claire of Luxembourg tops my list of the most beautiful bride - I just can't find a flaw.
Princess Madeleine of Sweden is a close second. Her dress from the bottom was not right, but she looked stunning and radiant nevertheless.

8. Queen Anne-Marie of Greece

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

From this article, I like Alice, Anne, and Annemarie's gowns. Though I would not wear those gowns, or the rest of the dresses. Too bad I don't have any all time favorite royal November wedding dresses.

Nevertheless, the worst here for me are Maria and Countess Alexandra's gowns. I love the veil of Queen Elizabeth's gown I don't really like her dress, though it's not awful.

I feel the same about QEII's gown IloveCP. The veil is exquisite, but I have never liked the dress with those 1940's Joan Crawford shoulders. Her Coronation gown was simply stunning, a fantasy.

With the exception of the Duchess of Parma I don't like any of the November brides, but that photo of Lady Sarah Chatto with her bridesmaids is a classic!

I think one of the most beautiful Royal Brides I have ever seen is the one worn by Katherine, Duchess of Kent. I was lucky enough to see in in real life and photographs did not do it justice.

I agree Mariec. It's beautiful in photos, but I was simply stunned when I saw it on video. It's a very classic, fairytale wedding dress that is really underrated, imo.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday (on a Friday): December Brides

I don't have any personal favorites here but the wedding gowns that I love but wouldn't wear are, Queen Mathilde, Queen Fabiola, Empress Farah, and Caroline's dresses. I think the worst here are Marie Christine and Queen Alia's gowns.

Queen Fabiola wore what was in my opinion the most beautiful Royal winter wedding gown ever, but I agree with IloveCP that it's not something I would or could wear. It's a bridal gown for a Queen!

1. FABIOLA!!!!
2. Stephanie of Lannoy
3. Grace

Worst is Mabel's
Mary of Denmark
Paola

Not to be argumentative, but if Fabiola is missing from a list then I don't give it much consideration. That dress is considered one of the top three of all time.

For me a wedding dress has to fit the bride's personality and style. While there are endless beautiful, even stunning gowns, they are unexpected, surprising (not in a good way) and often awkward.

Princess Letizia's gown was a work of art, but she seemed to be engulfed by the high collar of the gown which just made her seem like a turtle hiding in a shell. Princess Mette-Marit's gown was soft and romantic and very feminine and she looked so delicate but it did not reflect her very down to earth and practical personal style.

Princess Victoria's gown was a triumph of style over glamour. It's clean lines and style imitated Victoria's practical style and yet she looked so very regal, but I doubt very many would have been able to carry it off. HGD Stephanie's gown was very simply styled and reflected her serene nature while still being a stunning masterpiece. Yet once again I find myself thinking that few of her contemporaries could wear it to the same effect.

Princess Margaret and the Duchess of Kent had similar wedding dresses, both were of course fantastic; some of the few truly spectacular British royal bridal gowns.
The sketch of Mette Marit's gown is a poor representation of the actual dress.
