The more I see that dress, I think that is is lovely, and I know Mary is lovely, but the two of them together just don't work.

Mary and the dress- separate they are great, but together....the result was not quite what I had been hoping for- Mary looked better during her prewedding galas.

I've never noticed this thread before!
I loved seeing the older dresses from the 1800's. I know Victoria started the trend of wearing "virgin" white down the aisle, but does anyone know who started the royal tradition of wearing a tiara?
I agree, Mary's dress looks better on display than it did on her. I think she wore a tulle "petticoat" underneath that was way too poofy.

Are there any close-ups of veils? Mathilde, Maxima, & Christina's to be exact.

Divine Royal Gowns

Hi Everyone,

I am new today, but I just love this thread....
Firstly I want to thank you all, especially Mandy, for all the posts and Gorgeous pictures I found here! I really loved it...... So many Gorgeous Gowns. I found the Gowns as displayed at Aranjuez especially beautiful...So Feminine and yet gracefully flowing with those full skirts and long circular trains.... really Majestic.
I will go hunting and see what I can find, but I believe you might have already posted all the Gowns on display.....
Thanks again,

Crisinaki, Would it be possible to obtain a picture of this gorgeous Gown? Or have I missed it somewhere?
I would love to see it...... Regards,

Hi Sassy,
Like you, I love the older dresses of the 1800's too..... most of them are really Gorgeous and Sumptuous. The Ladies' court dresses of that time were really beautiful.....not to mention the Royal Gowns
I have some pictures of Court Dresses of the Victorian era somewhere and will post them here when I find them.

Queen Victoria's wedding dress was one of the most unattractive wedding dresses I have seen.
Victoria of Sweeden's was nice though and she looked so beautiful and happy.

Lovely

Wow, I had never seen photos of Queen Juliana's or Queen Ingrid's wedding gowns before, but I absolutely love them!

Queen Beatrix's dress was nice as well and I thought very appropriate for how her personality seems to be. I hadn'
t understood before now what ppl meant when they said that CP Maxima's gown was SO much like Queen Beatrix's that it made one wonder if it was really Maxima's own taste.
(former CP) Alexandra's wedding gown was lovely...except for that fact that the skirt had way too much pouf for her body frame. This dress would have faired much better with less pouf and more streamlined A-line style. She looked as though she was going to sink down any minute into the skirt! But I will say that I thought the train was a very good length for her.
