Princess Anne's wedding dress

When Princess Anne married Mark Phillips in November 1973 at Westminster Abbey, she wore a Tudor-inspired dress with a real 1970s flavour. Who would have guessed those two styles would be a good combination..?  With it’s high neckline and long draped medieval sleeves, it was elegant and simple in comparison to other highly-embellished royal wedding gowns.

The dress was designed by Maureen Baker (who designed for the Susan Small brand, a favourite of Princess Anne). What do you think of this dress?  Compare it to other royal wedding dresses in my Pinterest gallery below and let me know what you think.  Whether you love or hate it, it certainly was perfect for the time, and I think she looked fantastic!
