Royal Wedding Dresses of Great Britain: Princess Anne

by Azure

About Bride Chic I look at these pictures and remember with a certain sentimentality the day Anne's royal engagement was announced. Then as now, I'm reminded what a beauty she was, miles ahead of her time. While her wedding dress was classic as well as a bit ho hum for 1973, on video at the Westminster Abby Wedding, the satin moves beautifully and the detail is magnificent. Below is the engagement photo with fiance Captain Mark Phillips. Check out the dress in embossed...

by Azure

About Bride Chic Is there such a thing? That is, trends in bridal fashion coming out of Britain exclusively? Well, if you've been watching this market for as long as I have you'd say, absolutely.

Royal Wedding Dresses of Great Britain- Princess Margaret

by Azure

About Bride Chic Norman Hartnell, royal dressmaker to Queen Elizabeth, designed Princess Margaret's wedding dress, too, although the assignment was a bit different. Princess Margaret, who married celeb photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones, was something of a fashion plate despite her petite stature. Thus she was not a crown princess who had to stick to such strict protocol, meaning the creative process in creating her gown was opened up. Margaret didn't want any fussy details...
