We're about to have another royal wedding on our hands: Sofia Hellqvist will marry Sweden's Prince Carl Philip this weekend! We're excited to see what her dress looks like (and will share pics as soon as we get our hands on them), but until then we're managing our excitement by taking a look back at some of the most gorgeous royal wedding gowns from the past century.
Norway's Queen Sonja and King Harald were married in 1968. Before marrying into the royal family, Sonja was a commoner; her dress actually came from an upscale Norwegian department store!
England's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married in 1947. Norman Hartnell, a longtime favorite designer of the royals, made the dress, using 10,000 seed pearls.
Denmark's Queen Margrethe and Prince Consort Henrik were married in 1967. Her dress was by Jørgen Bender.
To continue the royal gown love affair, head to the Daily Mail. They've got a ton of pics to browse through (including an oh-so-80s dress from Monaco's Princess Stephanie and more recent brides, including Glamour favorites Queen Letizia and Maxima).
