I too like a gown which is not pure white, and my favorite is Princess Alice' pale pink gown. I have not studied all the gowns as many here have, so just going on what I've seen. Speaking of gowns based on historical style, Sophie Wessex had a tudor feel to her gown but not a heaviness which some tudor gowns have, lovely. I love the fur trimmed gown of Maria Teresa for a winter wedding and that recent fur-trimmed gown of Adelaide of Habsburg.

And for a light, spring, joyous gown, Princess Tessy's. i usually don't go for strapless but hers I love, on her. Maybe not on me...I was an Alice Pink or Winter Princess girl.

The small floral tiara of Luxembourg would be mine, or whatever it was Princess Alice wore.

Alice
Maria Teresa or Adelaide
Tessy
Sophie

HGD Stephanie of Luxembourg, Claire of Belgium, Charlene of Monaco and Maxima of the Netherlands all wore gowns that I would have worn myself!

Even though Grace Kelly's is my all time favorite bridal gown I did not choose it for myself because I couldn't pull off something like that...I don't have Grace's very long neck and tiny build, so it wouldn't look nice on me unfortunately.

I'd definitely wear Stephanie's wedding dress. Elie Saab did an amazing job!

I had two weddings but neither was a big affair because I was busy earning a living and moving around. If I wanted a formal gown, it would still be Alice of Gloucester's pink floater or Tessy's white floater. I like the idea of lightness in a wedding gown.
I thought Stephanie's was too heavy looking for MY taste. It seemed she was almost dragging the train with difficulty. Alice, on the other hand, is shown walking around with ease in what pictures there are of her wedding day and her gown. Her dress was light enough to pick up in front and walk down stairs. Weddings are serious matters but the gown can be light.

I agree Stephanie's train was too long, but maybe the dress was styled that way on purpose because someday she will be the next Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. I thought Princess Diana's train was too long, too. She must have hated being squashed in that carriage with all that extra gown along with being so tall and having her tall father next to her.

If I had a choice, then I would wear either:

- HM's dress with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara
- Mette-Marit's dress with her tiara
- Maxima's dress with the Baden Fringe Tiara
- The Duchess of Cambridge's dress with Queen Victoria's Sapphire Coronet

Stephanie of Luxembourg, she's the one who got married recently right? In the lace dress and train.

I would wear Queen Elizabeth II's only without the train. It would probably fit me too, because she's only a couple of inches taller than me.

Also I would wear it with all of her accessories (earrings, necklace, petticoats, sandals).

Hmm . . .

The dress and tiara/headpiece I'd wear without a second thought, or question:

Maxima's.

Runners up:

Kate.

Charlene.

Would wear, but with one change:

Tie:

Mary. I'd wear Marie's tiara, instead. Or, even the ruby parure tiara.

Victoria. I'd wear the Baden Fringe tiara, instead.

Stephanie's train was in perfect proportion to the scope of the magnificent Cathedral where her wedding took place,imo. The views from the choir loft as she preceded down the aisle were breathtaking, straight out of a movie.

For me its a toss up between The Princess Royal's wedding gown and her engagement gown from her first marriage to Capt. Mark Phillips. I have no clue what tiara I'd pick.

Before October of last year I would have said Maxima's dress!

However, now that I have seen the stunning beauty of Stephanie's gown and it has officially topped Max's as my number one -I'd say Stephanie's gown for sure!
