Wow I would like to congratulate you Princess of Europe, what a good guess! Actually Victoria's wedding dress is quite a copy of Manuel Mota's 2010 Pronovias collection. Par Engsheden just made a blend of Manuel Mota's two dresses called Tiber and Chabeli, both from the 2010 Pronovias collection. I must say I am a bit disappointed about that. The dress was beautiful for Victoria, but a haute couture designer is not supposed to just copy others' work. Just check it you will be as astonished as I was this morning.

You've no idea where Par Engsheden got his idea for the wedding dress from, but I can bet he didn't copy it from Pronovias. This is the 2010 collection?
Victoria's dress will have more than likely started to be designed after her engagement, which was last February.

For Charlene I think she'll stick with an Armani style gown. The style seems to be her choice for occasions. She's tall and thin which means she can wear anything but she seems to stay with clean lines and little ornamentation.

Tatiana is all tall and slim which means she can pull-off any style gown. She has been seen in ballgown type dresses so I'd think she'd choose that style for her wedding dress. Of European designers I think she'd pick Balanciaga (don't know who designs for that house) or a designer of that stature or maybe a Greek designer.

Actually I read it somewhere which led me to check Manuel Mota's wedding gowns and indeed Victoria's resemble the 2 of those dresses from head to toe: the shape, the back, the front, the skirt, the choice of fabric... except for the belt which holds the train and the sleeves.

I know a bit about fashion, and believe me nobody is ignoring one of the most prominent wedding gowns young designer that is Manuel Mota. It is indeed the 2010 collection but don't you know that they do it backwards? This year's wedding gowns are from the 2011 collection, and Par Engsheden as well as many others must have seen them by the time Victoria was engaged to Daniel. Again, Victoria was radiant and I believe that she has nothing to do with all of this. But at a certain level, a haute couture designer copycatting others is extremely disappointing.

I am confused by something you describe.
What do you mean by a belt? I can't remember CP Victoria wearing a belt with her dress.
Could you show me what you mean? :)
And does anyone have any idea why, in one of the video's, Victoria's train seems to have disappeared. She is holding the veil on her arm, but there is only a short train left. The rest is 'missing'.

The dress was designed so that Victoria could take the 5-meter-long train off for the dinner, so that it was easier for her to dance.

So, how was the train attached? Does anyone have a picture where is shows?
With the belt mentioned above?

Excuse my bad english if you question my fashion knowledge for I did not mean that the "belt-like" thing on the waist is to hold the train nor the sleeves
But it was there not only to emphasize the waistline, but also to hide how the train is fixed to the dress, there must have been some hooks or buttons somewhere on purpose. The train didn't disappear, it was meant to be removed.

The train on each dress have to be a little longer. But I love the style of these too dresses.

What do you think?

I think Marie will choose a Danish or a French designer, or a half-Danish half-French.
These are both stunningly beautiful but out of those two, I particularly like the second one.

I like this dress here: Alfred Angelo Bridal Style 8519 from Modern Vintage Bridal

If I ever married Prince Harry, this is the dress I would wear. But instead of the sweep train, I would have a bigger train like Catherine's.

If I don't get to wear that dress, this would be my second choice:

That second gown is almost an exact knockoff of Kate's-even down to the bustle at the back!

Only the color and fabric are different.

I can't wait to see the future wedding dresses of Elisabeth, Leonor, Estelle, etc. I hope Ingrid Alexandra will take inspiration from her mother's wedding gown, like Mette Marit took inspiration from one of Queen Maud's gowns. Maybe have a similar train and veil. I also hope Amalia will wear her mother amazing Valentino veil at her wedding. It would be wonderful to see it again.

I agree about that veil! I could see every one of her daughters wearing that veil. It's amazing.

The dresses on the site you link to are wonderful. I actually wore two dresses at my wedding (we had two ceremonies). This dress is very similar to the one I wore. I loved the freedom of it. Much preferred it to the long (ornate) gown.

Only difference was that I had a halter top, with the bodice elements continuing on the halter.

If I were to do it again, I would dispense with the ornate gown and the semi-length, and go for something like this . The look in his eyes would be worth it. Ha!

LINK: Etui-Linie Herzausschnitt Asymmetrisch Abnehmbar Satin Spitze Brautkleid mit Perlen verziert Kristalle Blumen Brosche Pailletten Schleife(n) (002012842) - JJsHouse

In my dreams!

This would be more like it - the back is scrumptious. Probably for the renewal of our vows on our tenth anniversary, on a lanai in Hawaii. Sounds good to me. I'm a strong believer in getting married every ten years.

Sooo gorgeous, I catch my breath every time! Yes, I agree...that veil needs to become a family heirloom worn by many generations of Maxima's descendants. It was simply too exquisite for only one showing.

If Stephanie has a daughter, I would love if she wore her mothers exquisite veil on her wedding day.

I agree, that's another veil that is simply too beautiful to be put away in storage forever. The bridal gown as well!
