YOWZER! I had never seen this picture an aerial shot of Princess Mabel's wedding gown. Now, I do think that she has her own unique style and sometimes its good and sometimes its bad but on her wedding day..................................................boy, that is one ugly train on that gown.

I agree. I think the dress looked "too heavy" on her tiny body. Also the fabric was too "stiff" .... in addition to her face expression, who IMHO belonged to someone who was truly terrified...

I would say that "the dress ate the Princess" that day.

yikes - I think the dress has lot of bows on it too not just the train alone.

Does somebody have a pic of the whole awful dress?

funny thing, Mabel's dress (and all of her clothes, accessories, hair and make-up) keep coming back on the threads as basically all time worst ever, probably more than anyone else. surely someone picked a worse dress than poor Mabel.

i bet she's a really lovely person too

In fact, the bows are awful, but if you ignore them...the gown could be OK!!!

That gown, indeed, would truly have been one of the best if Mabel had chucked those bows! I mean, look at the cut of the dress, the material & fabric used, the color, everything was actually perfect and flattering about that dress for this particular bride. Except for those bows! What a shame.

Coulndt agree more! And her hair..it looked like she hadn't washed it in days, it looked stringy. An otherwise truly luminous woman was drowning in that dress that day. Wrong dress for such a tiny girl.

Quite true. I thought the dress could've been one of the most favorable wedding gowns of today if it wasn't for those hideous bows.

I did wonder what Mabel's dress would like without the bows- I was always a bit doubtful about it. I tried it, with photoshop, and the result? A huge improvement (how could it not be?), but the dress ended up with the bodice looking a little unfitted. It would be great if it was perfectly tailored, or if there was just a tiny bit of decoration on it, or something.

Yeah, without the bows, the dress looks a zillion times better. It actually looks like Maxima's wedding dress, now that I think about it. But yeah, maybe just some bows around the waist, or one in the back attaching the train would have been a lot nicer and more aesthetically pleasing.

It's not just you.....they do. She went a little slap-happy with the bows that day. I'm surprised she didn't make Friso wear a bow-tie, rather than a traditional tie.

I never really realized it- Friso got away without wearing a bowtie! How'd that happen? :)

edit- after seeing Sister Morphine's next post, after just submitting the exact same thing: Ok, now this is getting scary.....

Still, that's much better. The material seems to flow. Great job!

Perhaps more fitted through the waist...lace at waist only...small thin ribbon with a flat bow??? Mabel gets her bows and a fashion prize?
