Knowing what we know now about the marriage of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles, it almost breaks my heart to look at these photos. That being said, it was a most extraordinary wedding. In an article published yesterday, the New York Times noted that previous to Diana’s wedding, bouffant gowns were not widely available, let alone popular - she single-handedly brought them in vogue. Their 1981 Royal Wedding also ushered in an era of over-the-top ceremonies and receptions (a trend which didn’t decline in popularity until the recent recession!). Although I myself would rather elope than be studied by an audience of 750,000,000 as I exchanged vows, I can’t help but imagine what it would have been like to walk down the aisle on that day in July..! If Diana’s wedding was a video game, I would certainly buy it.
