I loved to se all these pics and videos of the royal wedding!

This couple is very romantic , the families and guests seem truly delighted with this wedding and IMO the Wedding bress is very elegant. It's not amazing but the fur detail is quite creative for a wedding dress. I liked it a lot.

Nothing compares to these traditional royal weddings where almost everyone attending it are royals.

Best wishes for them!

The bride looks so beautiful! Where was the wedding held, it looks like a huge place. And no offence but I really don't like what Alexandra and Tessy are wearing.

I'm little dissapointed about the guests. I hope to see more Belgian royals of course Mathilde, Paola, Albert, Claire and Laurent maybe Amadeo and more family from Luxembourg. Are there photos of ther guests?
Is there were more Habsburg relatieves?

There is a better picture of the tiara on this board

Very strange??
I could not believe my eyes...and thought at first that I made a mistake, but I think it is strange that being the closest relative to the bride HR&IH The Archduchess Marie Astrid as mother of the bride did not make any effort for her outfit. Being the most important female person after the bride..she had not made a new couture outfit for the weddingceremony of her eldest daughter and choose to wear the brown & white colared suit which she used before on the weddingday of her her Belgian cousin HRH Prince Laurent april 2003. In Mechelen only the hat was new??!! Quirinus X. Heim

What a beutiful couple!
I loved the brides dress also the little bridesmaids and pages, very appropriately attired.
I thought Astrid and her daughter Laura very badly dressed.

It has pictures of Mr. Antonio and Mrs. Christine de Ligne? Cato has pictures of Queen Eleanor and Prince Miguel de Ligne.

If someone has put in the forum, I copy and place on the site of the Association Imperial CAUSE

I agree with some other posters. I thought the mother of the bride was seriously underdressed for such a joyous and festive occasion. A brown business suit? Faux pas!

And, what was Princess Astrid and her daughter Maria Laura thinking? Was Astrid wearing a silver lame rain coat? That short fur jacket was way too matronly for Maria Laura. It looks like something borrowed from Queen Fabiola's wardrobe.

There was nothing about dress-code on wedding invitations?

MariaLaura looks strange whe we comparing her with other female gueast (Liechtenstein and Luxembiourg's girls).

She looks elegant but not very special indeed. But she is always rather discreetly dressed. But I cannot not believe she did not buy a brandnew outfit?? I have been looking everywhere to find a picture of Marie-Astrid at Laurent & Claire's wedding but without success so far. Could anyone find and post? Thank you.

HRIH Marie- Astrid , the mother of Marie-Christine , did not need E. Vermeulen's dresses. Like all the Habsbourg she has her name (wedding of Karl and Franciska : just remember the diffence of the imperial look of Archiduke Otto and Baron of Thyssen' s..).
In the forums they are more pictures of Astrid of Belgium and her daughter who did not look as Princesses..than pictures of Marie Astrid of Habsbourg, her sister Margaretha and her daughter Marie-Annuniata von und zu Liechtenstein
I saw a picture of Charlotte of Luxembourg, she looked like her great-grandmother who wore the same surname.

Thanks for all the great pictures!

Marie Christine is gorgeous in her wedding dress

I don't like the outfit of her mother Marie Astrid nor do I like Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg's outfit either.

Too bad there isn't a bigger picture of Princess Maria Anunciata von und zu Liechtenstein. I like her alot and the recent pics of her are so rare.

where have you seen the Liechtenstein girls? I couldn't find them

BTW IMO Maria Laura looked just very cool and fashionable as always in latest years , while princess Astrid dared too much and her outfit was bad (I liked that kind of hat BTW, but it had to be worn with some simpler outfit)

Why princes Lorenz, Amedeo and Joaquim weren't there, they are cousins of the birde two times! And the others Habsburgs?

Whom does MC looked at before saying "yes"? her parents? the head of the imperial family?

Maria Astrid with her "recycled" outfit (if it was so) showed to be very "stilish" and "royal", well-done!

I didn't like the outfits of Alexandra of Luxembourg and Tessy of Nassau, who can prefer them to lovely Maria Laura??

It would be intresting seeing pics of the Brazils and of the Lignes

The outfit (what little can be seen of it) is indeed somewhat strange for the occasssion - I think it appears a bit too casual. However, she's such a pretty lady she can easily carry it of. Would love to see a clear, full-body picture of her though! I think almost all the female guests are dressed rather strangely, to be honest.

Prince Felix + pink tie.

For certain no one outshone the bride! She's so very beautiful. I agree with most commenters here on her gown (cuff too big, jacket too shiny, slightly higher tiara would have been nicer). Still beautiful though!

*sigh* wish I could look that beautiful at MY wedding!

And in the avalanche of praise for the bride, it should be mentioned that the groom looked very handsome too.

According to posters on another board who where in Mechelen he was there but only at the religious Wedding, but he entered and left the Church through an side entrance. The official pictures where taken in the Town Hall before or after the civil Wedding and therefore he ist not on them.
