Smile Favourite Royal Wedding Dress (not usually discussed)

I thought it would be nice to have a poll and related discussion of royal bridal gowns that are not commonly discussed when the topic of bridal gowns come up. Inevitably any polls or discussions about royal bridal gowns generally include Mary, Letizia, Mette-Marit, Mathilde, Claire, Maxima, Mabel, etc. but there are many other royal brides whose dresses we rarely discuss and some of them are just as beautiful as the more frequently discussed ones.

So here is a chance to have your say on bridal gowns of under rated bridal gowns. (Too bad the poll option only allows a maximum of 10 because there are a lot of under discussed royal bridal gowns!)

Take a look, cast your vote and tell us why you like a particular bridal gown from this list.

I voted for Lady Sarah Chatto. I have always loved her wedding dress. It is simple elegance, and I think that it describes her perfectly. I love the top of the dress, which is fairly original in royal circles (the only other one like it that I can think of that resembles it is Mette-Marit's a few years later).

I know alot of people out there disagree, but I also really like Clothilde's dress. I abhor her shoes, but really love the dress. I think that even if it wasn't designed to hide her pregnancy, it would still be beautiful. Her bouquet is one of my all time favorites as well.

The point of this poll was to vote on bridal gowns that are not frequently discussed, such as, mentioned above, those of Mary, Alexandra, Mathilde, Mette-Marit, Maxima, Mabel, etc. I thought it would be nice to focus on different bridal gowns rather than the same old same old, which are nice, but time for other bridal gowns to take the spotlight.

My favourite is Lady Davina Windsor, she looked so incredible sweet, also it was a dress I would like to wear, It was not grand in any way but I think it suited her perfectly, and very nice with the blue flowers. I HATE Clotildes dress and shoes, but her tiara is one om all time favourites, her flowers are also beautiful

last place-princess annette's dress-looks sloppy
next to last-lady davina windsor-is she the bride or bride maid? the dress is sooooooo plain i just dont know
winner-princess clotidle of savory-very chic, not to plain or showy and the bouquet is the perfect size for her dress
and that ladies and gents is my opinion a little cloudly by pms but none the less my opinion

Although I loved every single one of these dresses in thier own way, I must say, Princess Alexandria Sayn Wittingstien-Berleberg's gown is what got me. Loved it.

Maria Garcia de la Rasilla looked just beautiful when she married Prince Konstantin of Bulgaria in 1994.

Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg was so elegant when she married Count Jefferson-Friedrich von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth in 1998

Sorry everyone- my two posts for Princess Maria Tereza of Orleans-Braganza and Maria Garcia de La Rasilla were meant for another thread. I apologize!

I think Lady Chatto's wedding gown is sublime and certainly one of the best I've seen. It's beautiful study of simplicity and elegance and suited her petite frame
