The last really huge British Royal Wedding was that of Prince William's parents, Princess Diana and Charles, Prince of Wales.This Royal Wedding took place on 29 July 1981, at St Paul's Cathedral, London. Princess Diana's wedding dress was designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel.Diana's royal wedding dress was a huge, wide silk wedding dress with an enormous train that filled the aisle of St. Paul's Cathedral.
