Royal Wedding Nostalgia: A Look Back at Princess Diana’s Wedding

The world is just hours away from watching Prince William turn Kate Middleton into a princess -- a fantasy every woman on earth has at least once in their lives. And while the anticipation and curiosity builds, it's only right to take a trip back in time to remember the Royal Wedding that set the bar for every other one to come: Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

The day was July 29, 1981, and London became the center of the world as the Prince took his then-19-year-old bride. Diana made a bold statement with her Elizabeth and David Emanuel dress thanks to its remarkably long 25-foot train, making for some of the more memorable wedding photos of all time. From that day on, Diana became a fashion icon and quickly shot to worldwide superstardom. Thanks to photo archives and our pals at MemoryLane, pour yourself a spot of tea, kick up your feet and get nostalgic.

Will Kate fare the same? That's to be seen, but take a look back at Diana and Charles' historic wedding so you can get a glimpse of what William and Kate's might be like!

    This is a great post. I am somewhere in the midlde. I don't think we should judge quickly or without reason, but as social creatures we are vulnerable to the thoughts and opinions of those around us. Re: Kim Kardashian - I judge her because I feel like her actions cheapen the idea of commitment and marriage. Yes, she made a mistake and she is human, but she also used incredibly poor judgement and clearly does not hold commitment to a high level of respect. It sickens me. But, you are right. We never know what happens behind closed doors and in the end, it is only she who will have to deal with the ramifications.

    Like Pete I am baffled that this tome will earn out antiyhng like the advance quoted if that's what it is. But then,I'm not that interested in party planning. What's wrong with a crate of good wine, a few nibbles to soak the alcohol and a choice of very good friends? Or have I got the wrong idea?
