I love both Queen Margrethe and Queen Anne Marie, beautiful timeless dresses, stunning tiaras and the veil looked wonderful on them

Mette-Marit, the dress was so dreamy to me and a real artwork, 100s of metres of fabric and hardly a stich to be seen. I only wish the veil had been the same lengt as the train

Infanta Cristina, perfect dress, perfect veil, hair, flowers and jewellery and handsom groom. Perfect.

I also like Claire and Anitas dresses very much

worst
Marie Chantal: to much of everything and swamped her tiny frame, it was like she tried to be Grace and failed completely

Mary: The whole dress was so dated to me, the lump of hair, that badly plased tiara and veil and the skirt with wrinkled panels, and the way the train was attched with clip-ons made it a terrible dress IMO

Princess Annette, such a sweet and beautiful woman in the totally wrong, wrinkled marengue of a dress.

Then there are the 80s dresses like Diana and Astrid but they were from the most unfortunate fashion decade so Ill leave them out

Best wedding dresses

Which royal wedding dress was the best??
For me, it HAS to be Camillas.Although Iam not a very big fan of hers, I must say she has some good fashion sense.I mean, a lot of people were just waiting for her to mess up, but she blew everyone away with that dress of her.
What about you?:)

Her dress was very nice, it used a popular design but added an extra kick. I liked Letizia's a lot too. I thought it modern, elegant and very beutiful. It kinda looked like Camillas.

I have to agree, (1) Camilla's dress was great!
(2) Letizia looked amazing and so did (3) Princess Haya of Jordan (which makes a change), coz she usually picks some really bad outfits! On her wedding though, it was pure understated elegance.

1) A tie between Princess Maxima and Infanta Cristina:)

2) Princess Claire

3) Queen Sofia

4) Queen Fabiola (like in the case of Queen Sofia I didn't find both dresses that beautiful until last year, when, due to Prince Felipe's wedding, the Spanish TVE broadcasted a special programme on royal weddings, and I "discover" that both dresses were gorgeous! Both queens looked absolutely stunning in those images!)

5) Princess Mary

Worst
Kalina

Laura Ponte (I'm sure during the twenties those gowns were considered absolutely beautiful, but for me they were horrible! )

Queen Noor (One of the most elegant Royal Women ever, but I wouldn't have guessed it was a bridal dress if it wasn't for the veil :( )

Best:
1. Infanta Cristina : elegant, simple, encased her body perfectly:) (Everybody agrees she did one of the best choices in bridal dress)
2. Grace of Monaco: she was so beautiful and the dress showed that
3. Crown Princess Máxima: it looked very good on her

Worse: a lot of dresses:( :
1. Diana: the ultimate fairytale nightmare. No words
2. Laurentien: again no words
3. Mabel
4. Claire Coombs
5. Fergie (what were the British Royal women thinking in the 80's?)
6. Letizia: suit jacket with a tiara, just hideous

The most distinctive and unique bridal ensemble so far would have to be Crown Princess Mary's. I loved the old fashioned Spanish style headdress and the full and flowing skirts. It was different and it looked great for her coloring and body type.

I don't think there are many truly bad bridal dresses, just boring ones. I didn't like either Diana's or Sarah's though because they made the women look like little girls.

Of this year, I would have to say that Princess Anna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg wore one of my (now) favourite bridal gowns. It was just beautiful. :)

Do you have a picture of the dress so we can look at it?

I adored Mette-Marit's dress. It was flawless. I also loved the Valentino creation that Maxima wore on her big day. She never looked more beautiful than she did at her wedding. I adored QMII's wedding gown. It was gorgeous and timeless.

I did not like Marie-Chantal's dress. The top of the dress looked like she was wearing a sweater. Too much material for a small-framed person.

What was Mabel thinking? The bows. 248 bows! Here a bow, there a bow, everywhere a bow-bow! I couldn't stop laughing when I saw the pictures of the wedding.

Best Royal Wedding dresses

I know there is a thread for the Brides who didn't look good on their wedding day and why their dresses did not make the cut...so I wanted to start a thread on the best Royal wedding dresses.

What do you think..which Royal Bride and dress looked AMAZING on the wedding day?

I'll start with the Infanta Cristina.

Zonk, I found the thread you were looking for - Favorite Wedding Dress. It was buried a few pages back so its understandable you missed it. I merged the two together.
