I like the royal symbols that were embroidered on Letizia of Spain's wedding dress. These were fleur de lys, ears of wheat. and flowers.

Love her bouquet. A bit over the mega minimalist ones a la Kate and Meghan. Regarding the bmaids dresses, I thought CoE didn't allow strapless dresses in weddings.

A quick question, is it normal for British weddings or royal weddings in general to have adult bridesmaids or not? Eugenie, Diana, and Meghan only had child attendants and Kate only had a maid of honor as far as adults.

Bea's hat!  Laugh bounce


In the UK generally the maid of honour is an adult, and having adults as bridesmaids is very popular. Little girls are often flower girls, and despite the Royal weddings, pageboys are getting increasingly rare ☺

Diana had Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, who was 17 at the time, so not really a child, but not quite an adult either (although only 2 years younger than the bride!!). They were friends, so in that sense, she was closer to a maid of honour.

Zara Tindall had only adult attendants, IIRC.

Thank you for posting this. Star

I love comparing the wedding dresses. But even more interesting is it to see how the various wedding guests have changed over the years.

That's the thing with online contributions. Sometimes whole websites get blown into the abyss.

I've never noticed the shoes before! She looked absolutely incredible - she's gorgeous obviously but the colors and details are amazing. That tiara is so unique and beautiful.

The shoes are a revelation to me, too! They are GORGEOUS and even with the platform, that's a tall heel! I like that it's a block instead of a stiletto. And thought they barely show, they're still beautifully patterned.

Joachim and Alexandra's wedding was one of the first royal weddings I have consciously watched. I loved Alexandra's appearance as a bride.

Prince Joachim, the youngest of Queen Margrethe's two sons, met Alexandra Manley in Hong Kong, where she was born and raised. Their engagement in 1995 took many by surprise, but it resulted in a big royal wedding for Denmark - one that would have to tide them over until 2004, when Joachim's older brother would finally marry. For most of her marriage, Alexandra was the de facto crown princess, and she played the part with her style. That style started right away, with her wedding gown.

Alexandra’s gown was made by Jørgen Bender, royal couturier extraordinaire (responsible for the wedding gowns of Queen Margrethe, Princess Benedikte, Queen Anne-Marie, and Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg as well as many gala gowns for Queen Ingrid, Queen Margrethe, Queen Silvia, and others). He used whole silk and nearly 9,000 pearls to create the gown. It features a high collar, long sleeves, cummerbund cinched waist, and full skirt with a 4 meter train. The pearl detailing travels around the collar, down the front pleat of the skirt, and around the hem and sleeves.

Her voluminous tulle veil and equally voluminous hair were crowned with a diamond tiara given to her by her new in-laws.

Alexandra's dress is very reminiscent of Grace Kelly's and Princess Margaret's. It's absolutely stunning, I've never seen it before! I am unsure if it was intended (or me reading too much into this as is usual!) but the neckline of Alexandra's dress reminds me a little of traditional Chinese dress, perhaps it was a little nod to her Chinese ancestry and Chinese-born father?
My only criticism of the look is that the veil swamps the tiara, but that's often the case with many brides who choose a tiara and a large veil!
