Today we have another near-miss contender for my Top 10 Best Royal Wedding Dresses: Infanta Cristina's gown.
Arriving on the arm of her father with bridesmaids (including cousin Princess Theodora of Greece) in towCristina met her handsome groom at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, where he was a member of the bronze medal-winning Spanish handball team. When they married in the Barcelona Cathedral the following year, the bride wore a Lorenzo Caprile dress. Caprile has proved to be a popular designer among the Spanish royal ladies. Featuring a princess line silhouette, the gown is crafted from silk specially made in Valencia.
prettiest royal wedding hairdos of all time, if you ask me. The hair was created by Gloria Delgado, a stylist knowledgeable in 19th century hair styling techniques that had been recommended by Caprile, and Cristina gave her free reign. (Good call!) On top of it all, the Mellerio Floral Tiara reigned supreme.
