Slightly similar, except Chrisitina's looks better off the shoulder.

I always think that the wedding gown of the following are similar - it's simply the current popular strapless gown with a lace top over it:
1) Princess Claire of Belgium
2) Princess Anita of Netherlands
3) Princess Pavlos of Greece

Similarly the following are just a strapless gown with a lace bolero jacket (be it short, 3-quarter or long sleeve)
1) Princess Nicholaos of Greece
2) Autumn Philips
3) Princess Marie of Denmark (jacket lookalike)
4) Lady Sophie Windsor

I do not really see why must it be some designers who created them - there's really not much originality & creativity to it - any of us could just have gown in such common design without costing much (I am not talking about the material but design here). Which is why I still prefer the following gowns - unique and most probably you will not see them around us because of the personalised designs and what a true royal wedding gown should be.
1) Queen Elizabeth (A true royal wedding dress for a future queen - the significant symbolic beading)
2) Sarah, Duchess of York (another true royal wedding dress - the significant symbolic embroidery)
3) Princess Letizia (another royal gown with embroidery of heraldic symbols)
4) Princess Maxima (the lace inset)
5) Princess Mary (the origami-alike folds & lace inset)
6) Princess Mette-Marit (the soft flowing of the silk tulle)
7) Princess Mabel (I know the bows looks hilarious but undeniable it is really a very personalised gown)

They do at that and I like both of them.

What a lovely dress by Pronovias!

I also think it resembles Maxima's dress, but perhaps I'm seeing things as this is the kind of neckline I would have preferred her dress to have.

And I also think Catherine's dress has a hint of the Queen's and also Margaret's. Her dress was gorgeous, but I must admit that I was severely disappointed in the lack of originality (and, yes, this is only because it was a royal wedding gown...but maybe, like many, she grew up with a Grace Kelly dream dress).

Two princesses who wore the same gown at their weddings were princess Birgitta of Sweden and her younger sister Désirée.

Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg and Princess Madeleine's gowns have a ruffle on the bottom. I also think Madeleine's wedding train looked a lot like Maxima's. All three gowns are by Valentino.

Catherine Cambridge wore a dress that was strikingly similar to Princess Isabella Orsini's.

Isabella's wedding was first, so she didn't copy Kate!

The coat/dress wedding gowns of Sophie Wessex, Martha-Louise of Norway, Princess Mathilde and Princess Letizia all look like the basically the same dress to me.
