If there's one thing fans love about a royal wedding, it's finding out what the bride is wearing.

Ever since Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco exchanged vows in 1956, royal couples haven't disappointed in the wardrobe department during their romantic ceremonies.

In addition to wearing "The Spencer Tiara," Princess Diana stunned in her Elizabeth Emanuel dress that featured a 25-foot train. As for Kate Middleton, she earned rave reviews for her gown by designer Sarah Burton.

While Pippa has been spotted shopping at high-end stores including Suzanne Neville in London's plush Knightsbridge, royal watchers still have no idea what the bride-to-be will wear on her big day this Saturday.

With suspense only growing, we decided to take a look back at a few other royal weddings to see what the bride wore.

Don't get us wrong—we loved Kate Middleton and Prince William's fairytale wedding—but theirs aren't the only royal "I do's" we should be celebrating!

Sweden's Prince Carl Philip recently married Sofia Hellqvist in an absolutely beautiful ceremony in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The bride's long-sleeved, lace gown was reminiscent of Duchess Kate's 2013 dress, and Sofia's prince charming was (dare we say it) every bit as regal and handsome as William. 

There's something so romantic about the crowns and the tradition—and it doesn't hurt for your whole country to be celebrating along with you! So, without any further ado, please join us for look back at many of the beautiful royal weddings throughout history!

If predictions do come true and Suzanne is the lucky creator, fans will be delighted to hear that she is an "award-winning designer of bridal and evening wear couture fashion, all British hand-made wedding dresses and gowns."

On the other hand, a source close to designer Giles Deacon's team teased the wedding dress design as "very simple, elegant and it's all handmade." 

Like we said, the biggest fashion look of the wedding is still very mysterious. 


Until then, calendars are marked for Saturday when Pippa will marry businessman James Matthews at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire. Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have important roles in the ceremony.

And yes, Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate will be in attendance as well.
