Hi Kikimora, To put it plainly, in normal conversation you can receive wonderful news (as in you passed your exam) but not beautiful news. Beautiful = How something looks or is perceived (A beautiful painting) Wonderful = A experience / feeling of awe (think of the 7 wonders of the world, they are awe inspiring but not necessarily pretty / beautiful). A person can be both Beautiful and Wonderful, beautiful referring to how they look, wonderful referring to how they act / treat others. Hope this helps to clarify. Regards, Herman
Wonderful is less about appearence.
Wonderful means 'To be surprised' Beautiful means 'To look pretty'

Hi, Kikimora. Wonderful - tends to excite wonder, surprise and extraordinary emotion. Beautiful - level of attraction and usually posessing great charm.

Beautiful would more be as seen externally.... such as...... A beautiful girl/a beautiful dress/ a beautiful color. Wonderful would be more of a feeling..... It was a wonderful day/a wonderful show /a wonderful feeling
