Camilla didn't look good

Since the thread began not about dresses, per se, but about what bride didn't look good on her wedding day, I'd have to say that in my opinion, Camilla didn't look good. Nothing to do with the dress - thought it was ok. The hat was strange, I thought - thought she had straw coming out of her head or that her hair was teased on top till I realized it was part of the hat. But in terms of just not looking good, wedding day or any day, I'd choose Camilla. Sorry - my opinion, and certainly enough have picked on Diana that I feel the need to give equal time to the woman who took her place.

She didn´t wear this to her civil ceremony.The civil ceremony was just before the religious ceremony and so sh wore her wedding dress.

This is only the registration of their wedding...

Aw! Don't be so harsh on Princess Cristina of the Netherlands. She was born basically blind, so her dress had to be very simple so she wouldn't trip over it.

It may look frumpy and excessive to us now but we are looking at it from a 21st century minimalist eye. You can dislike Diana because it's just not your taste but to say that it was unstylish is untrue. It was the height of fashion for its time.
although you are right that it is not fair to compare it to recent gowns, it remains a terrible dress. Marie-Therese of Luxembourg and her sister-in-law Marguerite married in the same period ut their dresses were much nicer (Marie-Astrids dress wasnt a winner either)

I don't think Diana's dress was bad at all (would I look good in it? NO.), except for getting so crumpled.

I didn't like Maria Theresa's dress, though.

CPrincess Marie-Chantal Miller the dress was to bulky for her frame
Princess Kalina of Bulgaria. The pictures in this link show how bad the veil was.

It looks like a burka.

The dress underneath the burka was unusual too, for a wedding dress.

Yes, I agree it isn't good. But in the link it says that it is a traditional dress for a certain region and it was given to her I believe. So maybe she did not have a say in it.
