The fairytale wedding dresses at royal weddings
There is nothing more impressive than royal weddings and the bride’s gown. With Meghan’s and Harry’s wedding coming, everyone is wondering what kind of style she will choose and what her dress will look like. In the meantime, let’s take a look back in the archives at the Royal wedding dresses in the past times. Here are our top and flop over the years.

 

OUR 5 TOP: 

Princess Claire of LuxembourgLet's start with one of our favorite. We absolutely love the gown that Princess Claire of Luxembourg wore to marry Prince Felix of Luxembourg. It is a stunning embellished gown with a 10-foot train, created by Elie Saab.

 

Kate Middleton Royal Wedding DressesOf course, Kate Middleton has to be in our top list. She wore a sublime dress inspired by the Victorian time, with long sleeves and a v-neck. It is made of ivory satin and embellished with hand cut English and French Chantilly lace. It has been designed by Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen.

 

Princess Sofia of SwedenFor her special day, Princess Sofia of Sweden wore a fairytale gown made by a Swedish designer Ida Sjösted which had intricate lace details, made in three shades of white. The lace was made by José María Ruiz. We also love what Prince Carl Philip of Sweden wore for their wedding at The Royal Palace in Stockholm. It is the mess dress uniform (model 1878) of the Swedish Amphibious Corps, of which he is a Major.

 

Beatrice Borromeo weddingWe fell in love for Beatrice Borromeo’s wedding dress. Beatrice married Pierre Casiraghi, son of Caroline Princess of Hanover (and grandson of Grace Kelly), in 2015. For the lavish second ceremony, the bride wore a gown by Giorgio Armani.

 

Grace Kelly Royal WeddingOne of the most influential wedding gown of all time, Princess Grace of Monaco’s gown is also our favorite royal wedding gown. Designed by Helen Rose of MGM, it was made out of silk taffeta, silk net, tulle, and 125 year old Brussels rose point lace. Her dress is still considered as one of the most beautiful of all time.

 

OUR 5 FLOP: 
Let's see now our least favorite royal wedding dresses, or in other words our flops. 

 

Princess Mabel of Netherlands Princess Mabel of Netherlands wanted a memorable wedding dress. It was a success then. The bride wore a custom gown by Viktor & Rolf, who spent 600 hours creating this silk wedding which was covered in dozens of bows. 248 to be precise. Yes, 248 bows…

 

Queen RaniaQueen Rania wore a gown made by Bruce Oldfield, for her wedding with Prince Abdullah in Amman, July 1993. We think that short sleeves and lapels of the top part and all the details on the skirt are too much. 

 

Princess Marie ChantalPrincess Marie-Chantal of Greece wore a pearl-encrusted ivory silk wedding dress with a tulip-shaped front and 4.5 meter Chantilly lace train that was made by Valentino Garavani for her wedding in July 1995. Obviously, she is gorgeous and the dress could be impressive for that time, but we expected something more interesting.

 

Danish Princess MaryDanish Princess Mary married HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, in May 2004. Her dress was created from ivory duchess satin with a scoop neckline which exposed her shoulders. The skirt was made of 31 meters of tulle and she had a 19.6 foot long train. But for us it looks like a costume for theatre.

 

Lady DianaOkay, this was a really difficult decision, because we really love Princess Diana, and this dress is clearly outstanding and remarkable for that time. But we are not big fans of layers upon layers upon layers of silk taffeta and puffy sleeves for a tiny and delicate lady as Diana. Just to go more into details: it is a custom gown designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel with one of the longest veil the world had ever seen.

 

Do you think Meghan's wedding dress is going to be a top or a flop? We are incredibly curious to see her choice ...!!!
