i've noticed something...most royal brides wear dresses that cover the shoulders...aren't Royals allowed to marry in sleeveless gown?

Many churches have had rules in the past or still have rules about women covering their shoulders for decorum. Since many Kings are the heads of their country's churches, they must abide by more "old fashioned" traditions.

is this the dress you're talking about?
I can see some similarities..in the skirt and maybe the viel and train. But the sleeves are totally different, so are the bodice and collar.

The role of Princess Mia was played by Anne Hathaway, who was discovered by director Gary Marshal and also played the princess in the first Princess Diaries. She has also played Ella in "Ella Enchanted".:)

In Christian churches woman (bride and guests) are not permitted to enter bare-shouldered. That is why when Sophie and Edward married in the evening and female guests came in evening attire there was a special mention in the invitation that they wear jackets or shawls over their shoulders. When my sister married last year she specifically wore a jacket over her dress and was subsequently thanked by the priest who said he was sick of bare shouldered brides being disrespectful in his church. This is why all Christian European brides are dressed so modestly. Frankly I think they look much prettier than celebrity brides or many brides one sees in every day life.

Princess Claire of Belgium's dress is very similar to supermodel Claudia Schiffer's wedding dress also.

Semisquare: I'm not sure if I agree that the wedding dresses were alike...but it certainly seems she copied Diana's hair on her wedding day. What I mean is - Sophie copied the way Diana looked just before her passing, not copying Diana on HER wedding day. I agree, it would be nice if people could be a little bit more inventive. I think finally Sophie has tried to look like herself and not copy Diana - but that's another thread, I guess.

I've always thought that CP Marie-Chantal's dress looked alot like Princess Grace's. I'm sure Valentino changed the skirt slightly though because in the news reels of the wedding you can tell Princess Grace had trouble moving it it (stairs, etc.)

I hadn't noticed that Princess Claire of Belgium's dress was similar to Princess Mia's though. Good eye!

I think the bodices of Laetitia Bechtolf's and Clementine Hambro's dresses look quite similar, even if Laetitia's gown is much more refined...
