Archduchess Constanza of Habsburg & Prince Franz-Joseph Auersperg-Trautson 1994

The wedding took place, in Belgium, at the Notre-Dame-au-Sablon Church, on the 10th of September.

The archduchess is the daughter of Archduke Carlos and Archduchess Yolanda of Austria. The prince is the first son of Prince Edouardo Auersperg-Trautson and the Princess, born countess, Isabel d'Astremont-Lynden.

The church where the wedding took place is considered one of the most beautiful gotic church in Belgium.

The silk wedding gown was designed by Gérald Watelet.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Yeah, I agree. The wedding gown was too much frou-frou to my own taste (but then again, when did the wedding take place?... late 80's, early 90's? If that is the case, don't blame the bride ), but the dress she wore at the pre-wedding gala was stunning indeed.
Thank you very much, once again, mtbcm! :)

Photos from the ball, by Corbis.

This was such a wonderful dress! Pitty that the bride's great inspiring moment was not her wedding day...

Thanks for these beautiful pictures. I have always thought that Constanza looks much happier with Franz than she ever did when she was dating King Juan Carlos' cousin. (His son was one of her honor attendants at the wedding.) She has given birth to three daughters and adopted another. The first one died in infancy and was named after her sister. She adopted a little girl shortly thereafter and went on to have two other daughters. Any pictures of her children?

Archduchess Constanza's Wedding Gown

her gown was spectacular. The line of the skirt and the patterning on her bodice make it a real treat.

This is the best wedding gown since Fabiola's fur lined confection of 1960!:)

Constanza really seems to be a very distinguished, elegant lady. The dress she wore at the pre-wedding ball is gorgeous, who designed it (Watelet as well?).
Wasn't she engaged to Luis-Alphonso's father (he died from an accident during the engagement period)?

I agree with you. And she forms a beautiful couple with Franz-Joseph:)

According to the Hola article kindly shared by mtbcm, this gorgeous dress was designed by Scherrer.

I don't know if she was really engaged to the Duke of Cádiz or if she was merely his girlfriend. He died in a skiing accident in Beaver Creek (Colorado), in 1989.
