I was just only asking because it seems that the date changes everyday! But it looks like it's going to be in August

Quote:
But there is another wedding coming which surely will have a tiara wearing bride: Prince Nicolaos and Tatiana Blatnik. Will she wear the antique corsage tiara like Marie-Chantale? Will Queen Sophie's diamond tiara reappear? And will she get a tiara as wedding present, like Marie-Chantale and Alexia?
I thought that M-C's tiara was a present of her father not the GRF or does she have two tiaras? And that Alexia's tiara was not hers to keep.

What was the dress code at the weddings of Prince Pavlos and Princess Alexia, black tie or white tie? Is there any chance that they will have a full blown white tie wedding with guests in tiaras as well? (I hardly dare to hope)
Isn't QEII visiting the US and Canada? Any chance for a tiara gala over there? I think after that there will be a summer break and a lot of time to pore over the vast amount of tiara pics from the big fat Swedish wedding.

Imo I doubt that Tatiana's wedding is going to be white tie, I only hope that she gets to wear one.

It was morning dress. Don't think there is a chance that it will be white tie. No that the Wedding takes place in Greece i wonder how formell it is at all. If they ladies will wears hats for example.
Don't like to say it but i think we will have to wait a few years to such a big numbers of tiaras at an Event.

There are also sources who say that the fringe tiara belongs to Maria Olympia and not to Marie Chantal. Don't know when Marie chantal wore it the first time but in the first year she has always worn the antique corsage tiara.

I also thought it wouldn't be white tie, and agree that it will be a long, long time till we see such a sparkling event again. We'd have to wait for the next generation of CP's, because the weddings of Madeleine or Carl-Philip might be white tie, but certainly not this big.

It's the first time that I heard about the fringe tiara belonging to Maria Olympia. But P. Alexia certainly got her own tiara, although she wore the Khedive of Egypt tiara for her own wedding, as all female descendents of Queen Ingrid did. I would just like Tatiana to get her own tiara, and I would love to see her getting P. Irene's circle tiara. (hehe, I need a wishing fountain!!)

Hi Tilia,

Thanks so much.

Thank you for the pictures of three ladies in 3 different eras wearing this tiara. I agree that it didn't look too good on infanta Elena, not a good hairstyle to go with this tiara. Imo it looked best the way Ps. Irene wore it. I only miss the pendant in the central loop, which you can make out in the picture of Queen Sophie. The tiara looks a bit too strict and sober without it. I would really like to see this tiara more often (the version Sophie wore) and hope that it is still in the family.

Princess Letizia desserved something better.

I don't think the Greek Royal Wedding will be a tiara event. Of course we'll see Tatiana wearing a tiara, but just like Princess Chantal's wedding, it won't have tiara pararures and orders.

OK - i saw a lot of comments regarding the Grimaldis not having afternoon weddings (which would imply tiaras) - and lots about weddings with long dresses and hats - but honestly - even for those weddings (e.g. Charles and Diana, Silvia and Carl Gustav, Mathilde and Philippe ) - the bride always wore a tiara. I can't think of any royal wedding in the last - let's say - 20 to 30 years, where the bride did not wear a tiara.
So - even if Princess Grace did not wear one for her own wedding, it would look absolutely strange if Charlene would be the only (reigning) royal bride within these last years not wearing a tiara.

But so far no Grimaldi bride has worn a tiara. Neither Grace nor Caroline at her first and only religious marriage to Philippe Junot. And princess Astrid of Belgium also hasnÄt worn a tiara on her Wedding Day And also Countess Marie Kalnoky didn't wear a tiara on her Wedding to Prince Constantin of Liechtesntein.

Going back to Irene's tiara I hope she leaves it to Felipe, so it can be uses by the Spanish Royal Family, If it goes to the Greek Royal family that tiara will be sold at auction since the GRF will eventually die out, and they don't have much use for it. Pavlos will probably be the last CP of Greece and then the family will slowly have to sell their heirlooms including jewelery. I hope when Ann-Marie dies she returns the wedding tiara to the Danish royal Family so it can continue to be used by all female descendants of Queen Ingrid.

The fact that the GRF is no longer reigning does not automatically mean that they will sell away the jewels because they have no use for it, as long as they have enough money to support themselves. I guess that there are many aristocratic or simply "old money" families in Europe who are not reigning and still own such pieces and they are still passing them down to the next generations, even though they will probably use them only once or twice in their lifetime. However, Princess Irene might indeed choose to live the tiara to one of her sister's children, for sentimentakl reasons or becuase she would like the tiara to go to a reigning relatives. How knows what she has decided in her will - and I hope that we will not find out soon

The thing is the GRF doesn't have that much money and since Constantine owns property & has money in Great Britain his kids will have to pay death duties, which in turn will probably lead to selling things they don't need (jewelery).

I suspect Constantine's wealth is structured appropriately so as to avoid material death duties. The irony is that the very people the death duties are trying to capture are the ones who have the resources to avoid paying it!

Funny how life is that way murial!!

As for the tiara's, I believe one always needs a tiara.....even if you don't have an event, what about walking around your house?

I agree that the Greek wedding will be far less formal and the only one in a tiara will be the bride and possibly Queen Anne Marie, but I'm still hoping....

I hope that they manage to keep their family heirlooms. Should there be the need to sell jewellery, they might offer the Khedive and the old corsage tiara to the DRF. I cannot see the DRF standing by and watching the good old Khedive tiara being sold at auction.

But what do you all think: which tiara will Tatiana wear on her wedding day?
I think she might wear the antique corsage tiara. It was also the wedding tiara of Marie-Chantale and is sometimes worn by Theodora.
