Ok! You're the boss!


I must add in defense that the dress, the veil and the bouquet are absolutely stunning. And the shoes... well they are original, don't you think?!


Forget the expression of relieve that Victoria must have below while enters the church hiding ....

Regards.

I didn't mind the dress (I actually thought it was pretty and different), but combine the dress with the veil and you have another burka. Maybe it would have worked with a more opaque veil, one that gives less of an impression of a sack hung over the bride.

I rather liked Sarah's dress. It's not so Cinderella-frills and puffs. It suited her age at the time of her wedding. Actually, I was quite surprised by her choice. Her wardrobe had lots of frilly collars and fringes before and even after her marriage. Her dress was considerably simpler and she looked great in it.

I too was suprised about her wedding dress, it was much nicer than what I thought it would be , because she really didnt have the best taste in the world at that time .

They once admitted to not taking into account how small the coach was and how large Earl Spencer was. Between the size of the dress, the size of Diana, and the size of Johnnie, it's no wonder the poor thing got wrinkled. Of course, a different fabric, one resistant to wrinkling, would have been a better idea, but hindsight's 20/20.

Countess Spencers dress imo was beautiful. What I hate most about royal weddings is that the dresses are dull, dull, dull. At least Victoria's was unique. Her dress was gold, not yellow or brown. Her hair was up, but it fell down in the carriage and there was not time to put it up again. It is one of my most favorite wedding gowns.

Princess Elena's dress is not that bad. just kind of old-fashioned. not nearly as bad as some of what we've seen in this thread.

I hate to say this but I guess you are right..She didnt look good on her wedding day.She was very thin and the dress seemed bigger and the Spencer tiara didnt look good on her.The Spencer tiara looked better when it was worn by Lady Diana on her wedding day.

This veil style reamined me with the one queen Beatrix wore in her wedding but she has the short one. Just quite simmilar but Betrix's veil looked much better.

two wedding dresses

A lot of brides have two wedding gowns for their weddings. That is if they can afford it britney and star could because they had the money.But event brides who aren't rich sometimes have two especially if the first one is too heavy to dance and will get in the way.
