Princess Diana in her wedding gown

There’s officially less than one week until the royal wedding! The guest list is confirmed, the plans are set, and fashionistas all over the world have been buzzing about the dress that Miss Middleton will choose for her walk down the aisle. But the speculation has been done, so I thought it would be fun to take a trip back in time to another fantastically extravagant royal wedding and the dress that girls everywhere idolized at the time — Princess Diana’s wedding.

Diana Spencer wed Prince Charles on July 29, 1981 at St. Paul’s Cathedral in England. The bride was 20 years old, and she captivated the world the minute she stepped out of her carriage. 3,500 people were in attendance at the wedding, and 750 million around the world watched the ceremony. That is a lot of people to impress with one dress, but Diana did it.

Princess Di’s dress was designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel, and it inspired wedding dreams of girls everywhere. The gown was fit for a princess, made in the puff style that was popular at the time. The sleeves were huge, the neckline was frilly, and the train was 25 feet long. The dress was made of silk tafetta, and decorated with lace, hand embroidered designs, sequins (because you always have to have some sparkle), and 10,000 pearls.
