My favorite of those listed would by Lady Sarah's too. But what I really liked were her bridesmaids dresses, so simple and elegant, and same w/ their hair. I love how in photos (scanned from I Do...100 Years of Wedding Fashion), you can see the lovely white color of the dress contrasts and stands out against the grayness of the pavement and London weather. I guess you wouldn't expect less from someone who had served as chief bridesmaid/attendent at two previous important royal weddings.

This isn't one of the choices, but I recently came across the dress worn by Princess Rahma of Jordan (the duaghter of Prince Hassan, King Hussein's brother) and I loved it. This is the only picture I've found so far.

I Have to agree with you here. Lady sarah's dress and the bridesmaids dresses were beautiful- simple yet classic and the wreaths in their hair looked gorgeous. The whole Wedding was beautiful and she is one of my favourites.
I also thought Princess Mary looked beautiful but I was dissapointed by her flowers.

My favourites are the dress of Alexandra of Berleburg (just love the sleeves) and the one of Lady Sarah Chatto (such simple elegance...beautiful!).
I would like to add two dresses to the collection shown at this thread, btw. These two princesses weren't married at the time the thread was openened, but they defintely deserve to be in it (since they both have a lovely dress, imo): the two Van Vollhoven princesses Anita and Aimee!



Picture Anita and Pieter-Christiaan: ANP (originally posted by misshelen in the wedding thread of the couple)
Picture Aimee and Floris: DPA (originally posted by Elsa M. in the wedding thread of the couple)

I like Princess Noor of Jordan's gown the most! Besides, I like Infanta Cristina of Spain's gown, White, simple and elegant, and they are just my dreamlike wedding dress!

I still have the article from People magazine about Lady Sarah's wedding. Such a simple but elegant Summer wedding, even the young bridesmaids were lovely. I think her "tiara" was actually a pair of earrings from her mother.

Chotilde looks nice except for those hideous shoes!!

Alexandra von Furstenberg, nee Miller. It just stunned me the first time I saw it. I gasped, and even now it makes me want to rush out and get married. It just screamed BRIDE. I wish I could post a photo.

I have never seen such a tiny waist!

I absolutely loved Sarah Chatto's wedding dress. I loved the simplicity of the dress and really liked the neckline and sleeves.

Lady Helen Taylor's wedding dress was a lovely one, as was Lady Linley's. As for Lady Davina Lewis, she looked more like a bridesmaid than a bride. Her sister's wedding dress was lovely but I feel that her veil was way too low down and too far back on her head. It would have looked miles better coming from the tiara as has been the case with previous royal weddings.
