A wee while ago, reader Lea emailed me with a suggestion for a new blog feature: Wedding Wednesdays. Say what?!? Combining my love for royal weddings and my love for slightly cheesy days-of-the-week themed posts?! Reader Lea is a genius. Like Einstein, but with better hair. Let's do this thing:
We might as well kick off our new feature with one of the most famous royal wedding gowns of all time, that of Queen Elizabeth II.
This dress has far more detailing on it than is usually my taste, but somehow I've always liked it. Unlike some gowns that suit their times but get swept away by the changing current of the trends, I think this one stands strong. You know it was the ultimate dress for the time, and for the Princess, and sometimes that's all that matters.
And you? Is this a favorite or yours - or not?
