For the design, I think the attendants of Lady Sarah Chatto and Maxima had lovely dresses. Queen Elizabeth's bridesmaids also wore pretty dresses, however I feel they were a little too youthful and would be more suitable for flower girls than adult attendants.

For nationalism, I favor the dresses worn by Letizia's bridesmaids.

Really loved the look of the brides maids at William and Catherine's wedding. Tasteful and elegant. The girls' dresses reminded me of the dresses worn by the four daughters of Nikolai II in some of the photos from early 1900s.

Victoria and Daniel's attendants looked great as well. No unnecessary frills on the dresses.

The wedding of Georg Friedrich of Prussias parents. The bridemaids wore awful green dresses

Princess Elizabeth's bridesmaid dresses were very beautiful, I think Sarah F. had cute nice outfits for her little one's in her party.

Do you have any pictures of Nikolai's daughters?

Lovely pictures, but I personally don't see a huge resemblance.

I was referring to the overall style, not necessarily that the dresses used by the Imperial Family of Russia were in any way an inspiration for the bride's maids' dresses chosen by the Duchess . I should have been a little more clear in my original post. My apologies.

Thank you for explaining! All the little girls looks sweet and innocent.

The flower girl dresses for the wedding of William and Catherine were very appropriate -- classic, with a 'grown up' flair that little girls like and yet they were not 'adult.' One design element that did not grab me was the lace along the bottom. I do not favor such positioning of lace as it gives a slight impression of an undergarment peeping out (although it was clearly not).

I would chose Victoria's bridesmaids dresses for me.Those dresses are simple,and innocent looking.The girls looked great.No fuss or anything that took attention from the bride.I would definitley not let them wear strapless!

I like Victoria´s bridesmaids dresses too. Very simple, but beautiful and elegant.

Queen Elizabeth's bridesmaids dresses were the best adult dresses I have seen at a royal wedding. I think Sarah Ferguson's peach dresses were the cutest for the little girls. I hate those themed bridesmaids dresses like Charlene had, and Victoria's sailor uniforms for the boys.

Stephanie's bridesmaids has got to be one of the worst I have ever seen! I know orange and blue are the colors of the Nassau house, but I think they look horrible together. As for the older bridesmaids dresses, I like the color but not the dresses. Well, Antonia's dress was nice but, Alexandra's dress was very unflattering.

I actually quite liked the page boy outfits in blue with orange trousers although I agree the colour clash is probably not to everyone's taste (or else I'm colour blind!). I suppose dressing up young attendants in outrageous costume designs in bright gawdy colours means at least you won't lose the little darlings during the proceedings......"oh, just grab that satin ball of peach ruffles running over there - it's a bridesmaid and should be behind the bride...."

I actually loved the orange and blue combination of the flower girls and pages. Very different yet very contrasting shades but they really worked well together and also represented the Nassau house.The pages looked particularly smart.

For Stephanie to have such an amazing wedding dress the bridemaids will go down as some fo the worst. Both adult and child outfits were awful unflaterring and hideous colours
