I think even one bow would always put me in the habit of thinking of the original dress. (cringe, cringe)

I agree to every word you said;
about thouse terrible bows
and about Maire Chantal's dress that was a copy of P. Grace, but it did'nt flatter her at all

You're right! That view makes the train look even more horrid!

i think hands down mabels is the WORST (i like the photoshopped photo, it looks elegant) those bows are the tackiest thing i've ever seen on anyone. but it's not surprising mabel isn't known for her good taste.

Princess Mabel`s weddingdress would look stunning without the bows

Definately Mabel and her bow monstrosity! The photoshopped version is much better, which leads me to the question "Why didn't they just stop there?" Is it because it resembles Maxima's dress too much? Who decided the dress needed something more? Whoever it is should be locked up and heavily medicated! Just kidding!

Mabel's is definitely the worst I've seen till now. Proves that simplicity is the best advisor ...

No, not toilet paper, that is flimsy and whatever other adjectives used to describe it, flimsy is definitely not one of them.

In fact, that awful view from above makes it look like a very large flag, or maybe an SOS to Aliens to come save her.

When all is said (and wow, an awful lot has be said about 'that' train), youhave to give credit where it is due. The sheer stamina it must have taken to haul that thing up a very long aisle and not be overheated, perspiring and gasping for breath and a glass or two of water is very impressive, formidable even!

Marg, you are very funny! She must have gotten a good work-out when she wore that train. I wonder how much it weighs?

One of the other images that came to mind when I looked at the picture of the train was that of a parade float. She could march in the Rose Parade with that train.

I hadn't realized it before, but I was watching the show Frasier the other night, and they were playing the "toilet paper bridal gown" game, and Frasier's creation looked strangely like Mabel's.

In all fairness, Mabel's gown didn't look bad from far away... so long as you didn't get an eye full of all those bows.

Mabel's dress was so ugly. I also did not like Dianah's dress. Just too much of all.

Well, I think that this thread will go on forever because it is subjective, every person has their own opinion.

I agree that Mabel's bows were not good (to say the very least). Nor am I fond of Annette (Netherlands), Queen Silvia (Sweden), Mathilde (Belgium), Caroline or Staphanie (Monaco)'s dresses.

Now I'm off to find a positive thread!

I've recently seen Diana's dress at the Powerhouse exhibition in Sydney and I have to say that in reality it's actually quite beautiful and much simpler than it appeared on television. I've gone from not liking it very much to thinking it quite beautiful.

I loved the style of Princess Diana's dress, but I think all the wrinkles detracted a lot from it.

I agree, I liked the dress too. I think the wrinkles weren't meant to be. I read somewhere that it got this appearance because she had to sit in the glass coach all the way to St Paul's cathedral.

From Princess Diana, Princess of Wales: Diana`s wedding - marriage

Quote:
Unfortunately the dress designers had not made allowances for the lack of space in the glass coach that should bring Diana and her father to St. Paul's Cathedral. When the bride alighted from the coach the dress was crumpled and full of creases.

heres a list of the worst wedding dresses on my standards:
Kalina of Bulgaria (everything)
Queen Rania (the pattern, it wasnt cut right)
CP Mary of Denmark (the bottom of the dress wasnt very nice...its like they forgot
the petticoat to give it some pouff and they just had
to make due)
Princess Anne of England (those sleeves were horrid)
Katherine, Duchess of Kent (ithe neckline was ugly)
Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mother (didnt have any form at all)
Victoria Lockwood, Ex-Countess Spencer (just ugly, all all all over)
Princess Annette of Netherlands (jacket)
Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau (those darn bows)
CP Masako of Japan (reminded me of princess diana's neckline)
Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg (just look at the dress)
Princess Caroline of Monaco (ugly dress and the viel made her look like that
chick from star wars)
Princess Marie Astrid of Luxembourg (luxembourg is on a roll)
Lady Helen Taylor (so is england)
*****hopefully if there are any future princesses on this site...please learn from these mistakes lol*******

The problem with Caroline of Monaco's first gown is that it made her look chubby, which she was far from. It made her look just dumpy and thick waisted. I remember waiting with baited breath to see her wedding gown-she was my style idol when I was a young girl-and I was sooo disappointed at the plain-ness of it all! She was so young and innocent looking and I suppose the gown was meant to reflect simplicity and elegance.

But except for the hemline, I found it to be a great big dud!
