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...
Both bridal gowns were designed by Monique Lhuillier from her spring 2006 collection, and that is why the two gowns look so similar.

You can see more of Monique's designs, both RTW and Bridal, at www.moniquelhuillier.com

Princess Anne wedding gown (when she married Mark Philips) looks similar to Queen Beatrix coronation gown. Apparently it was inspired by a picture of Anne Boleyn (Queen Beatrix's gown).

If I was to compare Princess Anne's wedding gown with anyone, it would be with Princess Laurentien... at least the sleeves:

Or Maxima's! Especially the 'princess line' of the gown as well as the neckline look a lot alike, in Anne's and Maxima's gowns.

IMO, Mathilde's and Alix Paul-Cavailler's gown are very similar:

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.
I heard Mariah even designed the tiara to resemble Diana's and that the gown cost $12,000.

No, it's exactly the contrary: Marilène married Maurits in 1998, while Annette and Bernhard tied the knot 2 years later, in 2000.

Don't you think this Pronovias gown (Efeso) was inspired by Queen Margrethe's wedding dress?

Efeso

Margrethe

Efeso

Margrethe
That's such a beautiful gown! One of the best I've recently seen by Pronovias!

If it is inspired by Margrethe's?... Well, I think it ressemblances more Infanta Cristina's wedding dress... but yes, it is similar, especially in the skirt.

You're right, Elsa! It really looks similar to Cristina's gown...
BTW, I agree with you: it is one of the best dresses made by Pronovias. I simply love long sleeved wedding gowns!
The 2008 collection is quite fascinating, with many dresses à la Empress Joséphine!

Me too!... Call me conservative if you want, but I always get the feeling that short sleeved wedding dresses are not appropriate for a church ceremony... and it's utter bad taste for a bride (at least a Catholic one) wearing a strappless dress (it's like screaming to the guests: "Look what you're loosing!!" )...

I think the skirt of this gown resembles Maxima's, without the lace.

Me too!!! I totally agree with you. I don't see what the beautiful thing about strapless gowns is either (especially when they are sleeveless as well). Nowadays nearly every dress looks the same!

Not exactly on topic, but I did think CPVictoria's bridesmaids' dresses looked a lot like Queen Silvia's wedding dress. I wonder if that was deliberate?
