Bridal Dresses

I am pretty sure I am not alone when I say this, but Royal watching is my guilty pleasure. Queen Elizabeth is the definition of and the original #GirlBoss. Princess Charlotte is basically the Queens mini-me; is it wrong that I want to be best friends with a 92 year old and a 3 year old… Kate Middleton and Prince William’s story is what Disney movies are mad of. Prince Harry {aka the wild child} was only to be tamed by an American. Then there is Princess Diana, who is bound to go down in history, along side Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy as a timeless fashion icon.
I am obviously quit enamored with the Royal Family. With a Queen who is as accomplished as theirs, the air of real life enchantment that seems to follow them around, and the slightly scandalous events that take place every now and then, who can resist logging onto a computer to find out the latest gossip about the ever so illusive royals?

With Princess Eugenie’s wedding this past weekend I couldn’t help but work a little Royal wedding bliss into my post schedule this week, along whit a look back at some of the more memorable haute couture wedding dresses.

I know Grace Kelly is not a member of the English Royals, but she will forever be not only my favorite royal, but actress as well. Grace Kelly’s wedding dress is unarguably one of the most stunning and classic wedding dresses that have ever been made. I completely love the fact that Kate Middleton drew inspiration for her own dress from Grace Kelly’s and modernized the design. She really did look like a burnet Cinderella on her wedding day.

Since Meghan and Prince Harry just had their wedding I feel a little obligated to include her dress in this post. I know some of you will be offended by this statement, but I was honestly underwhelmed by Meghan’s dress. The lines and the style hung beautifully on her, but the dress was a bit too plain for me. I know that her dress couldn’t top Kate’s, but it could have at least been on par with Pippa’s.

Princess Eugenie and her sister had their questionable fashion moments back in the day, but their style has evolved and her wedding dress was absoutly stunning. I kind of love the fact that she went against tradition and forewent the veil. After all, the back of her dress was too beautiful to cover up, and her tiara choice more than made up for the absence of a veil.

Of course, I had to save the most loved royal for last, Queen Elizabeth. You really have to hand it to the Queen, she still going strong at 92 – horse back ridding everyday, making time for her family, dinner parties, and ruling a country; she is a pretty incredible woman. Her and Prince Phillip made such a dashing couple for their day and the train and dress she wore was a show stopper.
