April 9, 1953This gown is rather fluffy, I think, but I'll always have a soft spot for a bride that busts out two tiaras on her big day.
April 9, 2005One of my favorite royal documentaries is about Windsor Castle, and it features some interesting behind-the-scenes looks at the prep for this one. Especially fascinating since they had to delay by one day due to the funeral of Pope John Paul II!
Crown Prince Akihito of Japan and Michiko Shoda
April 10, 1959A little variety for you, in the traditional dress of the current Emperor and Empress. As has been traditional for Japanese imperial weddings, they later changed to more Western attire for the next portion of the wedding celebrations.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai and Princess Haya bint Al Hussein of Jordan
April 10, 2004Our horse racing Ascot friends! Haya is the daughter of King Hussein (see below) and his third wife, Alia. She's a junior wife to the Sheikh - his senior wife is Sheikha Hind.
April 12, 2003One of my personal favorites - just so lovely.
April 18, 1955The first of Hussein's four marriages, this is largely thought of as an arranged marriage - the groom was just 19 years old and was already king - and it resulted in divorce two years later.
April 18 & 19, 1956One of the gowns that honestly earns its "iconic" title, I think.
April 24, 1963Lace from head to toe, but carried by the constantly elegant Alexandra.
April 24, 2004BOWS. That's all, really.
April 26, 1923Another classic 1920s gown - this one, not so much a win for this particular bride, I think.
April 29, 1964
April 29, 2011You forgot all about this one, didn't you? Lucky I'm here to remind you. Lolzzz.
Which one is your favorite?
