Favorites:

1. Queen Margrethe of Denmark/Princess Margaret of England (Both Classics)
2. Princess Anne of England (first marriage) - loved the Mediveal look
3. CP Mette Marit - Dreamlike simplicity


Least Favorites:

Diana, Princess of Wales. (the bottom was OK but the Top }
Mabel of The Netherlands - Design fine But the Bows
Kalina of Bulgara - the least said the better IMO


In reality, it has been really hard to come to a decision. There are some really beautiful Royal Wedding dresses.

I agree with a lot of you

I've read the posts - agree with many of you but will add my own opinion, too:

Worst:
1) Camilla - not so much the dress but the hat - I thought her hair was standing up on top of her head, or that she had straw on her hair. And I just thought the whole wedding was a mockery...but that's another matter.
2) Much as I love Diana, Princess of Wales, the dress looked so wrinkled. But it was stylish and looked like a fairy tale dress, so I'm torn about whether to like or dislike it.

Best:
1) Princess Grace - such a classic beauty she was, and her dress reflected that. Elegant and simple and beautiful.
2) Sarah Ferguson - she looked amazing and had dieted and was slimmer...I think it reflected how hard she was trying to fit into the family.

best:
- Alexandra of Kent
- Claire of Belgium & Anita of Orange-Nassau (the same concept)
- Princess Maxima of the Netherlands
- Queen Margarethe II of Denmark
- Infanta Cristina of Spain
- Archduchess Fransesca of Austria
- Princess Aimee of Orange-Nassau
- Princess Tatiana of Liechtenstein
- Archduchess Catharina of Austria

worst:
- CP Mary (the veil was placed very odly, the tiara was hardly visible and the apron in front of the skirt was strange, a bit farmerlike and the train was to long and seemed out of place, as if in the end the designer noticed that something was missing & he just took extra material and quickly attached the train)
- Princess Kalina of Bulgaria (she could work in an haunted house in a themeparc with that thing)
- Princess Astrid of Belgium (what was she thinking?)
- Princess Diana of Wales (to overwhelming, wrinkly etc)
- Queen Sylvia of Sweden (very disappointing, it did nothing for her)
- Princess Christina of The Netherlands

Mabel of Orange-Nassau (that woman had NO excuse)
Astrid of Belguim (but I give her a break because it was the 80's and that was just an unfortunate time in fashion history)
Diana of Wales (see above)
Beatrix of the Netherlands (the short veil didn't do it for me and the dress was kinda a mess)

I now have to fix my list! I forgot all about the disaster that was Marie-Chantel's dress. She was trying way too hard to be like Princess Grace.

And I think, like a lot of other people apparently, that Mary looked very farm-girl in her dress. Maybe it was her hair; maybe it was the cut of the skirt - it wasn't that great.

I would also like to add Princess Anita to my best list. Yes, it's obvious that she copied Claire of Belgium, but that dress was so pretty that any smart woman would want to wear something similar. The very delicate lace matched her very sweet smile and I loved it!

I liked and disliked a lot of dresses, actually. Difficult to reduce the number of it to three, so I won't even try it.

I really liked:
-
Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands (just very simple & elegant, with beautiful hair and veil).
-Princess Maxima of the Netherlands(that veil was gorgeous, as was the dress).
- Princess Anita of the Netherlands(loved the lace).
- Princess Mathilde of Belgium (that neckline! And a very beautiful dress and veil of course. A bit different, I like that).
- Princess Claire of Belgium (the lace again, I think she was my absolute favorite, but it's hard to choose).
- Queen Fabiola of Belgium (a very classy and stylish dress for those years. And again a beautiful veil).
- Princess Letzia of Spain (it reminded me a bit of Mathildes dress, and I especially liked the embroidery on it).

The following dresses I didn't like too much (but I have to note that the brides looked good after all, because normally I always think a bride looks good, but I don't necessarily have to like the dress she's wearing...):

- Princess Mary of Denmark: There was something about the dress I didn't like. Can not exactly say what it was. I think it was merely the fabric I didn't like. And there was something weird about the lower part of the dress.
- Princess Diana: Too puffy, but I have to give her a break too. The eighties were terrible, seen in a fashionable light! (Probably we'll think the same about our period of time within ten years or so) .
- Princess Mabel of the Netherlands: Well, what can we say about her? Those bows, those bows! But apart from the bows I really liked the cut of her dress, to be honest.
- Princess Christina of the Netherlands: Have you ever seen that dress? Somebody should have helped her, that's for sure!

My favourites

1- Princess Maxima: simple and elegant for a winter wedding.
2- Princess Letizia: Loved the veil and neckline
3- Princess Anita: simple with great lace detail
4- Princess Mary: beautiful veil, train and a great cut that showed off her figure and yet was very elegant
5- Princess Martha Louise: love the sleeves and personal detail (A for Ari on her dress) as well as the dress under the jacket.

Worst
Princess Mabel (those bows!) and anything in the 80s.

A special mention the the dress of Queen Sofia, also very regal and beautiful :)

3. Marie-Chantal (toooo much)
