I can't say I'm impressed by the bride's dress. Most of the time our expectations tend to be too high when it comes to royal brides. Anyway, the newlyweds look very happy.
I'm reserving my opinions of the guests until I see more pictures but Letizia's my favourite.
Was the groom's sister in a white dress as well? I've only seen one picture of her.

Here you go: http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Aug2010/PPE10082543.jpg So, the Kents were the only members of the BRF that attended?

And the reporter said that the British royal family did not send higher ranking members because they consider that there was not much security. I don't know how she got this info??

Oh ,those brits...grin...don't know where they got that from but it's lalalaland calling there.....

Tho,must be said,the Brits are way too phaphapha in matters as weddings & funeral and attending these events,bit of a way too pompous lot not aware that really they are a sort of risée,others already count down all members of the british RF as not attending,saves them a lot....grin...,they'll always find an excuse and think all are dumb enough to buy that ...Oh,never mind...Have a gin and dubonney ma'am,and all's well that ends well...

All the visiting VIPs whether royal or not brought their own security detail. In addition there was local security that has landed on the island and the surrounding areas since 10 days ago.
Some of the things I heard from one of the reporters did not make much sense but I am sure she was ansxious to transmit everything she was seeing while commenting on just about everything..

Thank you Dierna23 for the pics.

I think that this was a family affair and the bridal couple picked people that they knew and who they were close to. Let's face it and not to be mean but rather realistic....the Greek Royal family is non reigning, the groom is the 2nd son and 3rd child.

This is a small family wedding. You don't see representatives from every royal house. Usually you see all the Dutch royals (Mabel, Friso, etc.) And where Martha Louise? No Monaco, Luxembourg, Japan, Jordan, etc. Its the people they know. And Prince Michael of Kent's mother prior to her marriage was Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.

Most likely she doesn't know. She is making a guess. Scotland Yard isn't going to share its security issues and/or concerns with her. They ususally don't publicize that information.

So far I liked Letizia's and Victoria's dress the best. As for the wedding gown, it was not really my style.

Congrats to the newlyweds!

You see representatives of every Royal House,Reigning Royal House but Luxembourg and Liechtenstein,so no,it's the brits bug bugging around,and for the rest you are right,the couple choose friends.

Tatiana looks stunning and I am glad she wore a strapless not DVF dress.
Wonderful wedding.

Not a fan of the wedding dress. I really like Máxima's dress though. It's very beautiful. Madeleine looks like Arielle

I like the dress, I like the bolero jacket.

I hate Infanta's Christine & Elena's dresses. Christina's maker her look older and heavier than she really is...and Elena's is just silly looking.

Thanks for the info on the Brits

This may sound silly but why is she styled "Princess Nikoloas"?

Btw, I really loved Letizia's dress, she looked gorgeous.
