Wedding Wednesday: October Brides

October! Fall! Brides with long sleeves! Here's a sampling for you:

October 4, 1997
They may not be the most shining example of the Spanish royal family these days, but oh, to reminisce. Such loveliness, and I think one of the best uses of a floral tiara at a wedding ever.

Viscount Linley and the Hon. Serena Stanhope
October 8, 1993
More on this one to come.

October 13, 2011
The most colorful addition to the royal wedding craze of 2011.

October 14, 1947
Actually, she's had more than one October wedding over the years. But this is my favorite. (Extra tip of the veil to her daughter, Eugenia, who rocked the same tiara in a sort of medieval style for her October 1998 wedding.)

Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
October 19 & 20, 1932
Parents of the current King of Sweden, since he's having a jubilee year and all.

Lord Nicholas Windsor and Paola de Frankopan
October 19 & November 4, 2006
These two were also guests at the recent Luxembourg wedding.

October 19 & 20, 2012
More recently wedded bliss, ah.

Prince Floris of Orange-Nassau and Aimée Söhngen
October 20 & 22, 2005
More on this one to come too, I think.

Prince Charles of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and Camilla Crociani
October 31, 1998
The "other" Charles and Camilla - and her wedding gown is a lot less ooomph than I might have expected given some of the stuff she's worn since.

Who's your favorite October bride?
