^ How lovely to wed at Christmas time, TLLK, and with fur edging the gown (preferably faux fur!) I'm a great fan of winter weddings. Also, to wear an historic veil, as these brides have done, is a real bonus.

I agree 100%. In some photos Kate's veil looked like cheap netting plopped flat onto her head almost as an after thought...particularly disappointing when one sees the time consuming and exquisite detail involved in her gown.

Maxima and Stephanie had veils that were breathtaking and matched both their status as Royal brides, and the venues of their prospective weddings.

The only thing I thought was successful about Letizia's bridal look was her veil, it was lovely.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Princess Aimée's Gown

It's a bit difficult to see Princess Aimee's veil in the photos but the video shows how her veil has a bit of sparkle to it which livens up a very simple wedding look.

I liked the paper (!) veil worn by Anne-Marie Gualthérie van Weezel when she married Prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme, the Duke of Parma.

The paper veil in full

Queen Victoria of England's veil was made of Honiton lace. Victoria's daughter Princess Beatrice married Prince Henry of Battenberg on July 23, 1885. The Queen allowed Princess Beatrice to wear the veil which she herself had worn on her wedding day.

I believe Queen Victoria's wedding veil ended up in her coffin, covering the dead queen's body.

I don't like Kate's at all. To be honest I was as disappointed by her wedding look as Zara's. The dress didn't fit properly, looks like she lost too much weight, and had a Madonna cone bra effect going. Her veil looked cheap and seemed to cling to her like wind in the face. With the tiara, her hair needed a proper updo (didn't need to be severe but something) and lose the heavy eyeliner and remnants of the fake pumpkin tan.

I think Mary and Letizia wore tiara's straight through the service.
If I remember correctly, the flowers were attached (wired?) to her tiara and was cut off in the vestry. Diana's blusher was also cut off in the vestry.

If I remember correctly, Maxima's veil was a gift from WA and was magnificent in that it was brand new and gloriously white, Victoria's a gorgeous heirloom. She and Victoria solved the 'problem' of magnificent veils by using their stunning, elegantly styled, wedding gowns and trains as more or less a blank canvas to highlight the veil. Both looked magnificent and are in my top 3

Victoria
Maxima
Mette-Marit (for sheer romance and utter gorgeousness that created the illusion of a swan floating down the aisle). Sheer magic.

I thought Mette Marit's was absolutely wonderful too. Her dress was gorgeous and her veil looked as if it floated down the aisle on a cloud.

I don't know whether I've already said this or not, but I also thought that Mette-Marit's veil was amazing! I would have thought a thick veil wouldn't fit, but it did it, and marvelousy!

These pictures of Mette-Marit's veil may well have already been posted somewhere else, so my apologies if that is the case:

It really was special and was perfect with the rest of outfit she wore.

Maxima's veil was, I think, the most magnificent - the sheer scale of it with all the intricate detail was breathtaking.

Never mind, I always enjoy looking at those pictures, whether they have already been published or not

I think that the wonder of MM's veil was that at first look it almost looked like a sheet but she looked like a medieval princess bride. Beautiful.

I also enjoyed Queen Maxima's veil but since I dislike her wedding dress I completely overlook the veil.

Eve Pollard, BBC Fashion commentator for the Royal Wedding commented that the sequins of Lady Diana Spencer's veil caught the light and sparkled. Sequins had not been seen before on a royal bride's veil.

Lady Diana Spencer's bridal veil was sent out to be embroidered. Peggy Umpelby hand-embroidered 10,000 sequins onto the veil.

HAS any royal bride not opted for a veil, but for a Hat, or a head ornament or flowers in her hair?

Some have not worn tiaras and worn ornaments like Charlene.

But no veil? Mainly older of second marriages. Camilla of course had her fan like fascinator. Lilian had a pillbox when she married bertil. Neither Caroline of Stephanie of Monaco wore one. Beatrice Borromeo only had a veil with one of five wedding dresses.princess Christina of the Netherlands had more of a hanker chief, lace but still, than a proper veil. Anne had a hair ornament when she married Tim.

Thanks I had forgotten that rather awful ting that Camilla wore. My mum had a hat a bit like that, with feathers on it which needed a net to keep the feathers in place... It wasn't a good choice IMO. Her general wedding get up was very nice, but the feathery thing and the feathery hat she wore were a bit messy looking. I think that a neat little hat or a pill box would have been better. but all in all she looked well. I must look at the other brides you mentioned. I was really thinking of younger brides going for maybe flowers or some pretty hair ornaments rather than a veil...
I see Pss Steph of Luxembourg went for the Veil well back on the head look, I don't think it looked well nor the tiara she had.. it drew too much attention to her face and her hair rather pulled back

Even among regular every day brides, veils are pretty much standard issue for young and/or first time brides. Yes women choose what to wear with their veils. Like hair ornaments, tiaras, glowers, combs or just the veil. But for a formal wedding it is not likely to see a bride either. Royal weddings are formal for the most part. We may see flowers like Ferguson or hair ornaments like Charlene but veils included.
