Princess Anne married Mark Phillips on Nov. 14, 1973, at Westminster Abbey. As Queen Elizabeth II's only daughter, her wedding was highly televised by ABC. The designer of her gown is unknown to this day, but it was stunningly beautiful with its smooth, silky silhouette, high collar and trumpet sleeves. While the gown was very modest, the pin-tucked bodice showed off the bride's very small waist. The gown didn't have many elaborate details, but the long, silk train was punctuated by flowers outlined in pearls and silk. Princess Anne wore her grandmother's tiara and a simple veil.

TLC Takeaway: A modest dress doesn't have to be a snooze-fest. Show off just one of your amazing features (legs, collarbone, arms or waist) instead of all of them.
