If I were to choose, I'd go for:
- Princess Mette-Marit's gown
- Princess Maxima's gown
- Princess Marie's gown

I am also absolutely in love with the gown Marie of Romania wore for Nicholas II's coronation.
Not a wedding gown, but I'd totally wear it for my wedding with only slightest adjustments.

Thank you for the above photos, Artemisia. Indeed, I would also choose in the first place CP Mette-Marit´s gown.

I wouldn't wear any royal wedding gown simply because the confines of being a royal bride and your dress are way too tight.

My favourites however are Margrethe and Lady Davina Windsor.

I would like Camilla's wedding suit or her "Blessing" gown. Her wedding suit would be perfect for a Chapel wedding.

I am a history buff. If I was royal, I would have gone for far more historical influence. Kate was rumored to have been designing her own, because of her love for art history, Instead it was a poor copy of Grace's. I love the historical gowns, not just wedding gowns.Some would be amazing inspiration, with some tweaking, like making them white when they aren't (I'm a traditionalist when it comes to wedding dress color).

Mary of Teck's (with a tiara and not her odd headdress)

Prince Philip's mother Princess Alice of Battenberg

Queen Ingrid of Denmark

To name a few.

That is a very pretty gown and I don't even like yellow. I think with some slight altercations it would be a beautiful wedding dress.

Is it terrifyingly stereotypical to say Grace Kelly's wedding gown? It's so romantic and just absolutely gorgeous.
I am also very taken with Kate's and Marie's gowns, and although the beige colour isn't really me, I love the embroidings on the Queen's gown.

My choice of gowns:

1) Lady Helen Taylor
2) Princess Margaret
3) Princess Claire
4) Princess Maxima
5) Queen Margrethe

I love the bottom part of Catherine's gown (love all the folds) but not the bodice.

I would choose from three:
The Duchess of Cambridge
CP Victoria
Princess Marie of Denmark

I like the lace from Kate and Marie's dresses and, at the same time, love the simplicity of Victoria's. I would definitely choose Kate's veil, though!

Lady Sarah Chatto's dress. It was so romantic, simple and beautiful!

Kate's and Princess Marie of Denmark's off the top of my head. I also liked Charlene's.

Despite the similarities between Kate's and Pss Grace's, I would not wear hers. Aspects of hers do fit the 50s time period, which I wouldn't wear.

If I had to wear a white wedding gown, I would chose the gown princess Anne wore at her wedding with Mark Philips, I love the medieval feeling of it:
With the Connaught tiara of the Swedish Royal Family.
I would prefer a non-white wedding gown, I hope that there will be a princess who dares to go back to the coloured wedding dresses of pre-victorian times, perhaps in a equisite gold brocade. For now, one favourite gown is the pale blue gown princess Lilian wore at her (second) wedding: Prins Bertil och Fru Lilian Craig - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
