I think she has been thinking very much about it. She turned down conventional dresses and requested her friends Viktor & Rolf to create something for her. Princess Mabel's dress was the most "weird" one but at the same time it is exactly unique because of that.

It was a dress at -technically- the highest level: double-faced duchesse satin was used to create a dress with a bateau neckline. Metres and metres of crêpe georgette was used to make 248 (!) bows by hand. The skill of Viktor & Rolf was shown with the trelliswork pattern: it covered the seams, so it looked like Princess Mabel's gown was cut from a single piece of cloth. Even the sleeves had no visible seam.

In an interview Princess Mabel once replied, when asked what her husband thought of her dress: "Friso thought the wedding dress was fascinating".


Princess Mabel

My least favourite is Princess Danica of Serbia's dress and Marie Chantal's wasn't the best

My least favourite are Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Mary, Countess of Wessex, Queen Letizia

Princess Mabel's dress was just weird. Without those bows, the design and cut was really nice

I would like to throw in Princess Masako's western wedding dress; completely unflattering and looked like a bad prom dress. Her traditional ensemble and much better.
