Máxima married in a wedding dress by Valentino, a design by the founder of the Italian fashion house: Valentino Garavani. He was no stranger to designing a bridal gown for a royal wedding. Valentino also designed the dress of Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece and that of Princess Madelaine of Sweden.

https://www.modekoninginm...-deel-10-prinses-margriet

"....Whoever says princess Margriet, says daisies. The princess is fond of symbolism and uses her name in a subtle or emphatic way in her clothing and jewelry. It was no different on January 10, 1967. The princess's wedding dress was designed by Lien Bergé-Farwick, who created a gown of white cloqué silk with a woven daisy motif. The fabric was moved to Paris, where the Bianchini-Férier silk factory is located. Not just the first name. Fashion houses Chanel, Dior and YSL also have fabrics made here...."

RED: The Dutch name for daisies are margrieten (daisy = margriet).

In 1981 Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles (Prince of Wales). Another well known, and rather iconic, wedding dress. This one also has its own Wikipedia page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/...ess_of_Lady_Diana_Spencer


"...The dress was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, who described it as a dress that "had to be something that was going to go down in history, but also something that Diana loved", and which would be "suitably dramatic in order to make an impression". Diana personally selected the designers to make her wedding dress because she was fond of a chiffon blouse they designed for her formal photo session with Lord Snowdon...."

On April 24, 2004, Prince Friso of the Netherlands married Mabel Wisse Smit. It was celebrated quite soberly in the Oude Kerk of Delft in connection with the death of Princess Juliana, Friso's grandmother, who had died more than a month earlier. Mabel proved her quirky taste and style with her Viktor & Rolf wedding dress. The dress is made of satin, has a fitted bodice with bateau neckline and a flared skirt. The decorative bows are applied all over the dress and increase in size towards the train. The ensemble has matching shoes in the same satin fabric. Four people worked on the dress for almost 600 hours. The garment is trimmed with 246 bows and bows.




Viktor & Rolf (stylized as Viktor&Rolf) is a fashion house led by the Dutch designer duo Viktor Horsting (1969) and Rolf Snoeren ( 1969) with theatrical fashion shows and extravagant clothing collections.

On 14 February 1981, the religious wedding ceremony for then Henri, the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg to Cuban-born María Teresa Mestre y Batista in Notre Dame Cathedral took place.

For the ceremony, Maria Teresa chose a bespoke gown by the French house Balmain. The white silk, intricately patterned dress featured a fitted bodice and bell skirt. Her sleeves had white fur around the wrists – matching the white fur around her neck and the bottom of the skirt.

So I’ll preface this by saying IMO as I’m sure others will not agree....

I thought Grace and her dress looked beautiful.... and well made

The Valentino ones .... definitely not Maddie as the ruffles were awful

Max and MC ... well made ... no bad seams

Most of the others bland or bad

Di .... bad did not fit and fabric hopeless in terms of standing up to a car ride

Kate .... no bland at best and the Madonna bustier was awful.... and the low v neck was better suited to someone that had some more oomph in the neckline

Mary ... the puckered seams and the heavy fabric just swamped her .... something more floating would have been better
