I remember that when I saw the pics of this wedding I thought "What a brave Bride!". The way she choose her wedding gown against all that 80's big dresses.

I like this picture very much. The expression on Victoria make me think she was more serene at this time.


Her previous expressions made me think that she was going through a lot that day:( . We must concede that she was anorexic at that time, she had all that pressure in entering this family, she was going to be the sister-in-law of Diana (when Victoria considered herself the uggly duck), she and her fiancé aimed for a low-key wedding but the simple attendance of Diana her sons and Prince Charles threw that expectations to ground... when she thought this day couldn't get more difficult she arrived late (around 30 minutes) due to a storm that made her wet to the bones while walking from the car to the church.

I have a picture of Victoria covered with the veil but I wont show it because it will ruin all my defense .

Regards.

Ok! You're the boss!


I must add in defense that the dress, the veil and the bouquet are absolutely stunning. And the shoes... well they are original, don't you think?!


Forget the expression of relieve that Victoria must have below while enters the church hiding ....

Regards.

I didn't mind the dress (I actually thought it was pretty and different), but combine the dress with the veil and you have another burka. Maybe it would have worked with a more opaque veil, one that gives less of an impression of a sack hung over the bride.

I rather liked Sarah's dress. It's not so Cinderella-frills and puffs. It suited her age at the time of her wedding. Actually, I was quite surprised by her choice. Her wardrobe had lots of frilly collars and fringes before and even after her marriage. Her dress was considerably simpler and she looked great in it.

I too was suprised about her wedding dress, it was much nicer than what I thought it would be , because she really didnt have the best taste in the world at that time .

They once admitted to not taking into account how small the coach was and how large Earl Spencer was. Between the size of the dress, the size of Diana, and the size of Johnnie, it's no wonder the poor thing got wrinkled. Of course, a different fabric, one resistant to wrinkling, would have been a better idea, but hindsight's 20/20.

Countess Spencers dress imo was beautiful. What I hate most about royal weddings is that the dresses are dull, dull, dull. At least Victoria's was unique. Her dress was gold, not yellow or brown. Her hair was up, but it fell down in the carriage and there was not time to put it up again. It is one of my most favorite wedding gowns.

Princess Elena's dress is not that bad. just kind of old-fashioned. not nearly as bad as some of what we've seen in this thread.

I hate to say this but I guess you are right..She didnt look good on her wedding day.She was very thin and the dress seemed bigger and the Spencer tiara didnt look good on her.The Spencer tiara looked better when it was worn by Lady Diana on her wedding day.

This veil style reamined me with the one queen Beatrix wore in her wedding but she has the short one. Just quite simmilar but Betrix's veil looked much better.
