I agree with you on needing to have a good relationship with the designer in order for the dress to come out right. Although I disagree about Queen Silvia's dress. She had that giant cameo crown on, you don't want some big foofy dress underneath to distract it. You want something simple and clean-looking, and that's what she got. Also, yes you're a royal bride, but you don't want to look like something that belongs on top of the cake, which is what Alexandra looked like.

Do you mean Marie Therese? I believe that Oscar de la Renta only designed for the house of Balmain in 1992 (when he became the first American to show a collection in Paris). I don't think he was associated with them in the early 1980s.

Alexandra Miller has to be my choice for MOST GORGEOUS BRIDE in recent memory. That gown is quite simply unbelievable! Too bad her sister Marie-Chantal didn't look that good on her big day, IMO.
