The beading- from ‘A Dress For Diana’

The wedding dress of Princess Diana is one that most of us will remember as a stand out wedding dress of our time. Princess Diana’s dress was the ultimate fairytale gown which little girls dreamt of as they twirled around their living rooms in their mothers heels and a bed sheet.

‘A Dress For Diana’ is a book written by the dress designer Elizabeth Emanuel. It takes us behind the scenes of the famous dress and into the secret happenings that went on! It’s not purely a royal gossip book, the book contains beautiful shots of the dress and details on the intricate features of beading and silk. From day one to the wedding day with all its planned moments (spare umbrellas shoes and more) everything is detailed. After more than 20 years the book guides us through the long and detailed process which ultimately produced an iconic gown.

The book ‘A Dress For Diana’ is available in two versions- the limited edition of 1000 contains a piece of the same silk as used in Diana’s dress. For those of us on a milder budget, the standard edition is £15.15 plus postage ($AU 26) from Amazon.

    I definitely thought the wedding dress was gorgeous! However, I did think the hats looked unusual.
