    Yes I just commented in another thread. It was beautiful, and clearly well made, but there are so many already like it out there. I really thought with all the resources at her fingers, she’d have a dress that was really beautiful, classic, AND interesting and one of a kind. There was just nothing “special” about it to me. I am disappointed. 🙁

    I think it’s better than I expected to be, but not great. The bodice is good, the skirt not so good. And it’s a bit too understated.

    @HappilyEverAfter54:

    I blame my own high expectations. I think in my head I was expecting a dress of spun platinum and gold or something. It was a VERY pretty dress, but for a royal wedding, I just expected something… MORE.

    I commented in another thread that it was a little underwhelming.  Obviously we can’t see all the details on TV, but it needed a much larger skirt, waayyy longer train and veil the same length.  It just wasn’t grand enough for the occasion.

    @MrsGolden2Bee: I think it is a stunning dress and was very fitting for her.

    @missyjane77: Same here! She doesn’t have an “over the top” kind of style so I wouldn’t have expected her dress to be that way. Her dress fits her character, as far as we see it, and looked gorgeous on her!

    I just commented on another thread as well. I agree that it was kind of a let down when you are expecting a new trend to give you something you have seen already, many times. It was timeless and classic but it was also timeless and classic when grace kelly wore it. I was more impressed that she wore a short veil with a long train

    I thought her dress was perfect considering the formality of the ceremony and venue. She is taking her new station in life very seriously, which I think is part of the reason she chose the dress she did. When William becomes king, they’ll show clips of their wedding again, and her dress will look classic and regal.

    I actually saw Princess Diana’s dress in person, and I wasn’t impressed with her dress at all. It looked much more impressive on TV.

    I wonder too though if she picked a dress that matched the economy over there. Things are still rough in England. Maybe something a bit understated and conservative was in line with the mood of the country?
