Princess Diana's Wedding Dress

VIDEO CLIP

Season 4 of "The Crown" shows the lead-up to Princess Diana and Prince Charles' 1981 wedding day, specifically the now-iconic gown Diana wore. Recreating the garment took 600 hours and the show even enlisted the original designers to consult on the replica! Stars Emma Corrin (Princess Diana) and Josh O'Connor (Prince Charles) tell Access Hollywood about their reaction to the finished product, which was so ornate Emma said it made her feel like she was "being sewn into a house."

SCRIPTURE VERSE

I rejoice heartily in the LORD, in my God is the joy of my soul; for he has clothed me with a robe of salvation and wrapped me in a mantle of justice, like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels. — Isaiah 61:10

ILLUSTRATION

The fourth season of The Crown charts the beginning of the relationship between Prince Charles, played by Josh O’Connor, and the then-Lady Diana Spencer. From the first flourishings of romance to the noticeable cracks in their relationship, the new season explores the ups and downs of the couple’s lives, including their wedding, which took place at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29 July 1981.
Viewers are treated to a close look at the future Princess of Wales (played by Emma Corrin) as she prepares for the big day, from picking out her engagement ring to choosing her huge wedding gown, which would go on to influence bridal trends for years to come.
The wedding dress was made using ivory silk taffeta, with the neckline and mutton sleeves designed with lace flounces, a feature particularly fitting for the bold fashion of the 1980s. It also featured hand-embroidered mother-of-pearl sequins and pearls, which came together to form a heart motif on the gown. The gown also featured a 25-foot train, which became crumpled when the bride traveled to St Paul’s Cathedral in a glass coach with her father on her wedding day, making it the longest royal wedding dress in history.
Diana also had a back-up dress on hand for her nuptials, in case the design of her wedding gown was leaked. “At the time we wanted to make absolutely sure that the dress was a surprise,” Elizabeth Emanuel told People in 2011. “Had the secret of the real dress got out it’s possible that Diana would actually have worn this one.”

CONNECTION

Probably the real purpose behind our custom of not letting a groom see his bride in her wedding dress before they reach the church, is that he may behold his chosen one in that moment at the absolute peak of her beauty. How pleased Charles must have been when he saw his bride, her natural handsomeness enhanced by this rich and dazzling garment. Perhaps he even thought of the familiar words of the psalm,
“All glorious is the king’s daughter as she enters; her raiment is threaded with spun gold” (Ps 45:54).
The Church has always seen the festal dress of a bride and groom as something more than a device to please the eyes of the marrying couple. It is rather a symbol of the beauty of the souls of those who take each other in marriage. Or, if these souls are perhaps not yet perfect, their garb should at least remind them,
“As you have clothed your bodies in loveliness, now clothe your souls in grace.… He has clothed me with a robe of salvation … like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels.” (Isaiah, 61:10-11)
