  1. I married 1963 wore a short lace dress short vell and lily of the valley
    head piese

  2. Well, not overly into celebrity brides but think Ellen and Portia should have been on there…the two most beautiful brides of late in my book. And before someone complains about SS marriages, let me say that Elizabeth Taylor’s EIGHT weddings did more to destroy the so called sanctity of marriage than theirs ever will.

  3. Well I reckon Jackie Kennedy’s dress was the most fabulous in that lot!!! I can’t see the point in spending so much money on wedding dresses or weddings though…give me a wedding at a backyard barbie or a beach or beside a river, or a nice little restaurant or hall…been to many a good wedding like that. Of course, it is a very personal decision…and everyone has to do it the way they want…

  4. I agree, Jackie Kennedy of this lot…however Grace Kelly wasn’t pictured in her wedding gown…that was very beautiful.

  5. II think of these Jackie Kennedy was perfect. Was in London When Prince William and Kate married but did not go and watch…. To o many people however we went to one of the pubs along with so many others to lunch and watch…. Was an amazing time with everything decot
