This dress is far from being ugly. It's different. Maybe it's to simple for american taste.
But this dress fits perfectly for Orthodox church wedding http://www.royalfamily.org/wp-conten...0/NR1_0797.jpg

Its not that its simple. I prefer simple over the overly laced dresses of so many royal brides. It is the fact it looks like a bath robe with an over sized belt, and looks to be about two sizes too big.

Roksana Illick is the designer, and she is usually out there with her designs. I loved the originality of it -really, I did. However, I expected she would have something more artistic so to speak, being that she is a fashionista, and her father an artist. It feels as though Roksana just threw it together, as the engagement announcement, and wedding were so close together, and she may not have had enough time to put something nice and well fitted together.

I thought it was a great nod to Serbia that she chose a Serbian designer, but just not the right dress for such a beautiful young woman.

As an orthodox Christian, I found this dress to be perfect for a wedding within a church, and with His Holiness officiating. However, it is too baggy around the top, and at the waist. It was way too long as she had to always hold it up in order to walk. The sleeves were too big, and that bow was ginormous. It was weirdly tucked into the belt with on of the bows. It was too long as well.

Had the dress fitted better, it would have been a beautiful simple dress.

The bride's mother is wearing short green dress with fur around sleeves. The groom's mother Princess Maria da Gloria of Orleans-Braganca is wearing long,long dress with gloves.

If you meant some other lady, please, describe what color of the dress, as there were many long dresses and in which picture as it may be easier to identify.

Thanks for answer MO
Not sure who the blonde is but not Danica's mother. Danica's mother is the dark haired lady in a short green skirt suit and brooch. There are photos with her and her husband with the couple, and one with her and Katharine.

The lady sitting next to Alexander is the president of Serbian parliament , Maja Gojkovic.

Princess Doña Maria da Glória of Orléans-Braganza, Duchess de Segorbe, looked truly magnificent at this event; she was accompanied by her husband, her daughters, and her sister Cristina. Their cousin Prince João was also present.

Here we see the princess with her son at the wedding in 2004 of the now King Felipe VI of Spain: http://diariodeumamonarquista.tumblr...a-de-segorbe-e

The others already indicated both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom (maybe you meant her?). As you are talking about a blond lady, you might also be thinking of the one in a red fishtail dress: she is crown princess Katherine's daughter ftom her first marriage and therefore a step-sister of the groom.

As I still think the dress was supposed to hide that the princess is already several months pregnant (hence the belt), it was probably hard to make it exactly fitting in addition to the bride probably not wanting it that way.

I would still like to see a backview as the parts at the back from her shoulders seemed to especially make the dress rather 'heavy' and the bride 'swimming' in her dress.

Thanks, Marc 23! Quite bizar that Philip's older brother Peter (his best man!) is missing on this family picture; as if he was needed to take the picture...

And why would the groom's stepmother's sister need to be in the picture and not his aunt (princess Christina Maria; his mother's sister)? It is clear that the crown princess has managed to bring her own family up to the front as always. It seemed quite telling that prince Peter stessed that it was so great that his real mother and half-sisters were at the wedding.

Where have you seen Princess Maria Christina and Prince João?

Can't find any pictures of them. :-(

Ahhh, this family is almost everywhere. :-/

Few days ago President of Greece was in Belgrade. Based upon that royal official site announced:

"His Excellency President Pavlopoulos is the Godfather to Their Royal Highnesses son David and grandson Alexander."

So, David was proclaimed THEIR son, not just her son, while Prince Petar during his interview said that he is really happy that "his real mother" was here and his whole family together.

This says something.

There were rumors that CP Katherine demanded that Royal Council proclaim her children also royal and give them royal status, which was, of course, denied by the Royal Council.

I think the dress was so loose and shapless perhaps due to a pregnancy.

Glad that they at least denied that but on Philip's wedding day, they were at least declared part of the royal family while Philip's younger sisters got no mention at all (his mother was mentiones as coming from Spain)!

Quote:
Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine and everyone were especially delighted that Her Majesty Queen Sophia of Spain and Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden came especially for the wedding. The mother of the groom Her Royal Highness Princess Maria da Gloria of Orleans and Bragança, Duchess of Segorbe and her husband His Grace the Duke of Segorbe come from Spain.

(...)

The Royal Wedding in Belgrade was attended by the Royal family – TRH Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine, Their Royal Highnesses’ children Prince Peter, Prince Alexander, Alison and David, Alison’s son Michael, David’s spouse Dr. Angeliki Andrews Margariti and their son Alexander, HRH Princess Linda Karadjordjevic, TRH Prince Mihailo and Princess Ljubica, HRH Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia, TRH Prince Serge and Princess Eleonore Karadjordjevic, HRH Prince Nikola Karadjordjevic, a large number of the members of the European Royal Families: TRH Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg, HH Prince Amyn Aga Khan, HH Princess Jeet Nabha Khemka and Mr Nand
Wouldn't have called the number of other foreign royal houses 'large' either; and quite striking that the other royal houses from the region were not represented.

Officially, yes. The groom himself calls her Dana.
Quote:
“Danica and I thank you all for being with us on the most beautiful day of our lives so far. We are so happy to share the joy of this moment with you. We thank our parents for organizing this magnificent celebration for us here at the White palace. And above all, thank you Dana for all your love and making for making me the happiest man in the world”, said Prince Philip in his address.

Of course, I know, but Dana is what she likes being called and how she calls herself.

I agree, but don't know who was invited and why they couldn't come.
