Princess Diana's Wedding Dress Had So Many Creases That Her Designers Didn't Anticipate?

But according to Princess Diana's wedding dress designer, there was one major issue when it came to her gown. According to Elizabeth and David Emanuel, Princess Diana was not able to fit her wedding gown before her big day. So, they had no idea how many creases it would have.

The designers were watching the royal wedding on television when they noticed that Princess Diana's gown had so many creases.

"We did know it would crease a bit but when I saw her arrive at St Paul's and we saw the creasing I actually felt faint. I was horrified, really, because it was quite a lot of creasing. It was a lot more than we thought," Elizabeth said (via Mirror UK).

Princess Diana Called Her Wedding Dress Designer After Her Nuptials To King Charles?

After the ceremony, David received an unexpected call from Princess Diana. And the mom of two thanked him for designing such a beautiful wedding gown that she loved so much.

"After all the photographs, they went in to have the wedding breakfast and I went back to my studio in Mayfair. All of my workroom ladies were there so we had a glass of champagne. We had a little party and just as I'm about to lock up, the phone rang... I thought who's calling? It was Diana! She said 'I just wanted to say thank you so much for the gown. I loved it. Prince Charles loved it. All the family loved it.' It couldn't have been more special for me to hear from the client. When you design for a bride you want her to be happy. As long as the bride is happy that is all that matters. The fact she took the time before she went off on honeymoon ... that's genuine kindness," David said (via Hello! magazine).
