The train looked gorgeous but I'd say, for goodness' sake put that veil on properly! What is it with brides these days, having their veils very low down at the back of their heads?!

Really? It looks a good 5' shorter than that, if not even shorter.

As for Diana, that train had to be long because of the sheer size of St Paul's Cathedral. A shorter train would have looked lost.

Princess Diana's wedding veil didn't extend beyond the train, as The Countess of Wessex's did.

I love trains on wedding/evening dresses, the longer, the better IMHO.

I think that if a wedding veil is worn bunched up, very low down at the back of the bride's head, it looks as though it's either fallen down, or was put there as an afterthought. After all, you...

I don't think it would be at all appropriate for Kate to walk up the aisle with no train or veil, or to have her veil very low down at the back of her head as seems to be the case with a lot of...

Gorgeous dress and veil, but I think the veil would have looked better coming from the tiara, rather than at the back of her head.

I've never heard that one before. Years ago, I came across the superstition that it's unlucky to take a wedding ring off once you're married.

No, Angelique, it was longer than 6.35m. A yard (3 ft) is 91.44 cm so Diana's wedding dress train would be just over 8 metres long.

Diana's train was NOT plain: it was edged with sparkling lace. As for Sarah, Duchess of York's wedding hairstyle, I think it was better than a severe updo.

Princess Diana's wedding dress train was the longest in royal wedding history but who had the one at 23 ft long, the longest before Diana's dress was made?

It says in some of my royal wedding...
