LET’S BE HONEST; WE ALL WANT TO FEEL LIKE A QUEEN WHETHER IT BE THE WAY WE ARE TREATED IN A RELATIONSHIP OR THE WAY WE FEEL IN A DRESS. IT’S THE ULTIMATE FEELING, NOTHING CAN TOP!
With the recent marriage of Alejandro Santo Domingo and Lady Charlotte Wellesley the craze of regal elegance is upon us once again. Taking a look back at a few princess’ one common denominator lays between them all: clean, classy ball gowns. Cathedral length veils for the most part have been spotted in most royal weddings but some opted out.
We pieced together two veils to get Lady Charlotte’s bejeweled veil look with a Rosa Clara gown. This combo is so striking when the wedding gown is has no embellishments, there is truly no competition between the veil and the dress. The two have a complete distinction allowing the dress to speak for itself.
Princess Madeleine of Sweden took our breath away and brought her husband to tears in 2013. Her Valentino ball gown carried lace through out with just enough sparkle to not take away from her massive tiara. She accessorized a bit more then the rest of the royalty mentioned, but she did it so right not one piece was excessive.
Princess Marie-Chantel wowed Greece in her Valentino wedding gown. The dress comes to life with 3D appliques on top and gives off a traditional elegance with the lace towards the bottom of the skirt. Marie’s cathedral lace trimmed veil was an aspect of her look we were able to nail down but her gown is so unique that aspect was more challenging. We chose a Rosa Clara with a thinner cummerbund and lively beading on top.
Princess Victoria of Sweden let her crown speak for itself with a subdued, off-the-shoulder Par Engsheden gown and complimented it with a lace veil. The off-the-shoulder look gives off a romantic feeling that meets between straps and strapless allowing the bride to have the support and comfort she may be looking for.
Princess Anne Marie of Denmark was not afraid to go out of the box with her wedding gown. For the year 1964 this really pushed the envelope. Today Hayley Paige is no stranger to pushing the same envelope. Her latest creation (seen left) resembles the lattice work seen in Anne Marie’s fabulous ball gown.
We saved the best for last, the ultimate bridal icon Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco. Her custom made gown was a present from her bosses whom placed Helen Rose in charge of creating the masterpiece. We achieved her renowned wedding ensemble by putting a lace bolero over yet another Rosa Clara gown with a thicker cummerbund.
STAY ROYAL BELLA’S!
