Well, here we are: the end. We’ve counted down your top 10 royal wedding gowns (which, as it turned out, totals up to 11 dresses), and we’ve reached the top. The wedding gown with more votes than any other is the one worn by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden to marry Daniel Westling on June 19, 2010. Slim women also need to select the correct dress to compliment their fugures without making them look cheap. Often embellished with LED lights and Swarovski crystals, these dresses offer a very interesting combination of modern brands and technology with caricatures of seventeenth century silhouettes. The laws regarding marriage are different in Germany than in the United States. In Germany, as in much of Europe, a religious officiant cannot legally marry two people. The official state-sanctioned service must be performed by a justice of the peace, called a standesbeamte. The civil ceremony which makes the union legal is performed in the town Registry office. This is generally a fairly small ceremony, attended only by the bride and groom with their immediate family and closest friends. The bridal couple will dress well, but rather simply. It is usual for the bride to wear a simple dress to her civil ceremony, although if a larger church wedding will not follow, she may opt to wear a white wedding dress. At the conclusion of the civil ceremony, the newlyweds and their witnesses often go out to dinner together. If time is short or your sewing skills are less than expert, choose a simple pattern and let a beautiful fabric take center stage. It is better to execute a simple pattern perfectly than to attempt a complex pattern and get disappointing results. Simple dresses include Butterick 5710 , modeled after Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress. Check out bridesmaid patterns at your local fabric store for simple silhouettes that will look bridal when made in white or ivory.
