Best Bridal Shoes:
1-Diana, Princess of Wales (Every bit as detailed and romantic as her wedding gown, plus loved the fact she wore flats.)
2-Princess Madeleine (Modern, refined, but still sexy.)
3-The Queen (Old-fashioned, pure class)
4-CP Mette Merit (Elegance in rare form.)
5-Princess Grace (As rare and beautiful as her gown.)

Worst:
1-Duchess of Cambridge (Looked like any bridal Jimmy Choos I can buy at Nordstroms.)
2-Lady Elizabeth Bowes Lyon (Too slipper like for my taste.)
3-CP Victoria of Sweden (Ugly embellishments on the toes.)
4-Sophie The Countess of Wessex (Too pointy and otherwise boring.)
5-Letizia of Spain (Ugly, ugly, ugly.)

All JMO, of course!

I meant Victoria of Sweden. Thanks for pointing that out to me in time for me to edit it above!

I love Elizabeth II, Victoria, and Charlene's wedding shoes in general, but I don't like them for a wedding.

Least Favorites:

1. Princess Clotilde
2. Queen Maxima 2 3
3. Princess Mathilde 2
4. Tatiana of Greece
5. Madeleine
My list would have almost exactly the opposite! Diana's shoes are atrocious!!

You've seen Mette-Marit's shoes? I have been trying to look for a photo of them but they are hard to find. I would appreciate if you (or anyone else) post a photo of them.

Photos of Stephanie's shoes are also hard to look for.

I think Charlene's shoes were awful, very clunky looking for such an elegant wedding dress. I don't care for Victoria's either, but I like Maxima's.

I didn't like CP Mary's dress at all, but I did love her shoes.

Again, those are not Diana's shoes. She wore completely flat shoes so as to not tower over the diminutive Charles. I am looking at the official book released at the time of the wedding right now with photos of the shoes, dress, rings, etc.

I suppose that comment was to be expected but Charles was not dimunitive and was at least the same height as his ex wife.

Righty oh. whatever your issue is NGalitzine, the shoes WERE FLAT. Put whatever construction you want. Those are not her shoes. But feel free to hate on them anyway.

here is a source for the 5'10" princess choosing flats to not tower over charlie http://www.shoes.about.com/od.weddin...dingshoes.html If they were the same height, and Diana wore any heel whatsoever, she would be taller than Charles by the height of the shoe. Assuming a 2" heel and add the tiara and she would have 3-4 inches on him.

here is the correct pair of shoes Shoes worn by royal brides

Scooter I have no issue at all, but a 5'10" male is not "diminutive". In fact he would be about 1 inch taller than your average male of European descent. Yes a woman in heels and a tiara might appear taller, but in reality a 5'10" female is the same height as her 5'10" husband so if he is called diminutive then presumable she is also diminutive.

What photo are you referring to when you say they are not Diana's shoes?

Victoria's shoes, very her style, simple but elegant. They also look comfortable to wear for over 10 hours.

5-Letizia of Spain (Ugly, ugly, ugly.)

All JMO, of course![/QUOTEhe
Regarding Lady Elizabeth Bowes - Lyon's shoes..a slipper is probably the standard for wedding fashon in those days. I'd like to see a picture of her shoes. I've read that she was proud of her dainty feet. What size did she wear?
