Hello guest
Your basket is empty
Yet another Royal mounted the steps at St George's Chapel this weekend. Find out more about her gorgeous wedding dress... 
Lady Gabriella Windsor's Wedding 
 
Lady Gabriella Marina Alexandra Ophelia Windsor (yes, it's a mouthful, but an elegant one,) wed this weekend. I had predicted that Princess Beatrice @beatriceandeugenieofyork would be the next to walk up St George's Chapel aisle but it turned out I was wrong. Yes, that's an admission from an ex-lawyer, might be a long time before there's another 
 
So, was she wearing something clingy and revealing? Well, fitted, yes, but revealing, no. HRH The Queen was in attendance after all and a reasonable level of modesty is de rigeur for most Royal brides 
 
Lady Gabriella, whose father Prince Michael of Kent is the Queen's cousin, wore a custom gown from Luisa Beccaria in Milan (@luisabeccaria) and a Russian Fringe diamond tiara, worn by both her grandmother HRH Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent and her mother HRH Princess Michael of Kent 
 
Bridal Gown Key Features: 
 
The key features of Lady Gabriella's gown were: 
Intricate embroidery 
Sheer lace long sleeves 
Tulle and organdie skirt layers 
White and pink tulle veil 
Six foot train 
So what size of train is appropriate? 
 
I'm not sure that it hinges so much on whether or not you're royal so much as how big your ceremony venue is and what sort of aisle it's got. If you get married at St Paul's Cathedral like Princess Diana you can have a 25 foot train and no-one will blink, just make sure it's ironed, or walk to church with a small army of attendants to hold it off the floor as you go.  
 
The Duchess of Good Sense, aka The Duchess of Cambridge @kensingtonroyal, who could have been equally grand given she married at Westminster Abbey, confined herself to a sensible (gosh how we love her) but elegant 10 foot train. Not to be outdone, The Duchess of Americana @suffolkroyal went for 16 foot, but Meghan, we think you got away with it as it was in the form of that exquisite Commonwealth veil  
So did we like Lady Gabriella's wedding dress? 
 
What do you think? Of course we did! But considering it was so gorgeous she didn't actually wear it for very long. Lady Gabriella had a total of four wedding dresses all by Luisa Beccaria. Gracious, what a lot of doing up, undoing, doing up, undoing, doing up, undoing, doing up and undoing, phew, are we at the end yet? 
 
But before you have a nervous breakdown or perhaps jump for joy at the thought of four bridal gowns maybe take into account what Oscar de la Renta @oscardelarenta said about Kate's wedding dress 'It was just a very traditional dress for a ravishing girl who doesn't need a lot.' Food for thought
