>Links to My Pre-Royal Wedding Bridal Gown Posts

>Many people have now discovered my posts from earlier this year about an elegant, dignified wedding dress or bridal gown. I wrote these posts and posted the photos in January and March. It turns out that the Vogue pattern I chose was almost exactly what Princess Catherine, the bride of Prince William, wore at their wedding two days ago. I had also posted a photo of Julie Andrews as Maria von Trapp wearing a wedding gown in the movie, The Sound of Music, which some feel resembles the one worn by the new Duchess of Cambridge. For  many years, the only photos of bridal gowns in search results on the internet were strapless and sleeveless, which was why I spent time, beginning in January 2011, showing examples of dignified and truly elegant wedding dresses, and wrote about their importance.

Thanks for the mention, Crafty and Cooking Momma, and I’m glad that you like the pattern I found for a very similar wedding gown to Princess Catherine’s–five whole weeks before she wore it.

Elegant Wedding Gown

Posted by M-J de Mesterton on January 19, 2011 at 2:31 PM

Prospective Brides: Something to Consider

Why not eschew the modern strapless evening dresses/corsets  with long trains that are now standard in the wedding business and adopt a classic, elegant, dignified style for your bridal gown? Following the crowd is not wise. That which is in fashion right now may make one cringe in the future. Brides of refinement and good breeding, women of high station in life have traditionally worn bridal gowns with long sleeves and elegant, high collars. Here is Julie Andrews as Maria von Trapp in the Sound of Music, wearing a gorgeous wedding dress that looks right for any decade:
Note that this elegant wedding dress has a figure-flattering shape while bearing none of the tacky, complicated embellishments that often find their way onto the most important garb of a woman’s life. If it is now impossible to locate a ready-made bridal gown of dignity and taste, there are patterns available from which one may be made.
