Not all! I had a hat, a friend had a long gown but no veil.. Of course Royal weddings tend to be more formal and to go by the conventions. But It would be nice to see some royal bride go a little off the beaten track...

I doubt you will see it. When you are getting married in a grand church, you need to look the part. A hat screams derby day at ascot not bridal gear, or at the very least, guest of wedding. Many of these brides are marrying in and the wedding is their introduction to the public as a royal. They do so by looking as regal as possible. I remember a wedding picture of my aunt from the righties with a Easter bonnet like hat. I had hoped such a trend had ended, didn't think it was very fashion forward. But i guess people are bringing back old fashion styles all the time. If neon and gym clothes as street clothes can make a comeback, I guess bonnet weddings can

I remember a tv-show in which Valentino Garavani was interviewed. It seems that a special loom machine was constructed in an empty hall, especially for the production of Máxima's veil, according a special procédé. Then a dozen of modinettes or coupeuses had lots of work to embroid the floral and guirlande motifs on the long veil. No wonder the whole adventure did cost a fortune but mission accomplished: it was a truly royal veil (picture).

Our Royals have a Veil belonging to Queen's Paola Brussels Grandmother in lace of Brussels.
An old Veil repaired for Princess Astrid's Wedding and later for Princess Mathilde.

Laure Mosselman du Chenoy ordered a Veil in Brussel's lace to marry Queen Paola's Grandfather.
It was worn by the Ruffo ladies and belongs now to Queen Paola. Two restaurations first for Princess Asrid's Wedding and later for Princess Mathilde's Wedding. It was truly an old authentic royal Lace Veil which has a story.

I do hope that veil will be worn by the three Dutch princesses and let it become an heirloom piece. It's too magnificent to only be worn once.

It is spectacular and I was under the impression for years that it was a historic piece. I was very surprised to discover that it was new.

I thought the veil of Princess Margriet was fabulous too. What a hellish work that must have been! (picture)

Or the one of Princess Juliana which was extremely work-intensive too. (picture).

Apparently all Dutch princesses choose a new veil. Besides Máxima the one from Princess María Carolina de Bourbon de Parme had a nice, vulnerable veil: picture. Annemarie Gualthérie van Weezel had a paper veil even! (picture)

I'm nto talking about a bonnet or anything outrageous like a mini dress.. and I don't see anything wrong with a hat.
but I would like to see a bit of imagination and making a few modest changes in the bridal look. I've been looking at a lot of more recent royal weddings since joining this forum and so many of them are very "samey". Kates was as "blah" as can be...
Things change, even for royals and it is possible IMO to have a "grand wedding" with a traditional look while still making a few changes.
