Definitely Mary's wedding dress with Infanta Cristina's coming in at a close second. I love the fairytale princess-flowy look.

My prefered one is Cristina's, and then Mathilde's and Maxima's. I don't find the other ones horrible, or even ugly, but I prefer these three... Actually, I have always loved Cristina's : simple, but very elegant!

I really liked the simplicity and the clear lines of Mette-Marit's gown. Maximas was also a little bit in that way, but in the picture provided the gown looked like it didn't fit her quite right.

Claire's was also quite pretty, and looked good on her slender frame.

Gosh what a difficult choice...of all the gowns I just didn't like the ones of Letizia and Máxima, but all the others may well have been my favorite.

I chose the one worn by Mathilde because it was not only perfect for her (and fitted so perfectly), but also because it was perfect for the gothic townhall of Brussels where she got married.
It emphasized her beauty and happiness even more!


But other ones were great as well: Claire's because of the lace, Mary's because it was so romantic, Mette Marit's for its simplicity and unbelievable elegance.

I really liked Princess Claire's dress - simple, classic, elegant, and just right for her. I also liked Mary's, but I don't think it'll stand the test of time as well as Claire's.

I love Mary's dress...a touch of the old and a touch of the new and with a beautiful glow like her things couldn't have looked nicer ^___^

It's my experience the most recent dress always wins in these kind of polls

This poll idea came from another member who submitted to the moderators of this forum (Julia and I) her poll choices and images. Polls here are restricted to a maximum of 10 poll choices so a great many royal brides recent and past were excluded. It was this member's discretion who would and would not be included.

I voted for Cristina because her gown is my style, SIMPLE yet so elegant at the same time. So beautiful and quiet. I love the radical crown princess look as well if you know what I mean, but, only one someone else. I personally am more of simple yet elegant type.

I voted Maxima, but I like the dresses from Mary and Elena too. Elena's gown is very nice... the details of the skirt, only the upper part is too law I mean and that is the same bij Mary's dress.
