Agree with you Eya... The dress was pretty but average and looked like a nightgown!

My absolute favorite Madeleine. Her gown was magnificent and fairytale like. I also love Charlene's dress. Catherine's dress is nothing special to me and I think the worst is Rania.
One of my new favorites is Beatrice's gown. The gown was absolutely stunning and regal.

My favorites:

1. Madeleine
2. Beatrice
3. Charlene

I don't have a favorite royal wedding gown of 2015. Beatrice's gown was lovely but not memorable. Her reception gown was outstanding however.

Beatrice had 5 wedding dresses. IMO, she had a few misses, but mainly a few major stunners. Her two hippy ones (the purple one and the white lacey one were misses) but her gown with veil and the reception dresses were major hits for me.

Beatrice Borromeo's epic wedding dresses , all the latest styles | Fashion

Not surprised people like Lady Sarah and Claire did not make the list. They aren't very well known to common royal watchers and that was an American paper. Mabel's bows likely got her notice.

I know people seem to love Diana's but sorry No. It may have been iconic in the 80's but you will always know what decade she married. The cupcake look was short lived for a reason.

1. Victoria
2. MM (I find Sarah Chatto and even Cristina's to be similar, but I like the overall look of MM's better, Sarah Chatto comes close)
3. Charlene
4. Beatrice (wedding and reception)
5. HGD Stephanie of Lux
6. Queen Sofia
7. Princess Madeleine

I agree, Victoria and MM's gowns were stunning in their simplicity.

I think The Duchess of Kent's wedding gown was gorgeous. I also loved her daughters. Lady Susan Chatto's was lovely.

My favorite of all time is Stephanie of Luxembourg. Classic and timeless.

Here's an interesting article about Kate's dress...
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

This was also in the Sunday Telegraph last weekend and they had a picture of the design that Christine Kendall submitted, which looked very similar to the actual wedding dress.

In the background here you can see the sketch of Victoria's dress. I would appreciate if anyone has better photos.
