Stunning gown, special and elegant. I especially like the way the collar holds the train. But it is a pity the the bride did not wear the stunning family tiara.

That is an amazing dress. Finally something that isn't lace or satin. It looks heavy to wear though, and quite warm.

Lady Charlotte's look had medieval feel about it. I liked the fact the bride wore minimal jewellery. The veil seemed to have polka embroidery.

After seeing close-up photos on www.ru-royalty.livejournal.com, I am really impressed with elegant austerity of the whole ensemble.

On a different note ... Who exactly from the cream of the European aristocracy attended the wedding?

I was thinking the same about the tiara but thought maybe the political climate in Spain had something to do with it. Although a private wedding, someone told me tiaras are a rarity in Spain even with the royals

Lovely dress, pity the newspaper articles don't give a full discription of it. Any ideas as to what the material is . The veil was very unusual .

Wow, what a stunning bride. Her gown is beautiful. I too love the fact it is different, not all these lace an strapless ones lately. Definitely glowing with happiness as was the groom and other guests even in rain.

With the addition that the heir(ess) has to petition for the title. When Lady Mae Wellesley does not petition the King of Spain about the vacant title Duque de Ciudad Rodrigo, the next in line (her brother) can still become the new Duke. Succession in Spain is not automatic, it needs a procedural handling first.
I assume you mean IF and not when. When the now 4 year old Mae gets to the age where she can petition for the vacant position (likely decades from now) why would she choose not to have a title? You don't.

What a gorgeous dress. Also interesting is the bride's dark shoes and the dark waistbands worn by the bridesmaids.

Oh I just noticed her shoes. Love they are the same darker green shade as the sashes her flower girls and page boys are wearing.

There have been daughters whem choose not to petition the King for their father's title with the purpose to keep the family patrimonium connected with historic title.

Yes, and that is why I said IF. You use the word WHEN which denotes a guarantee that she will not claim the title. Like its a given. Guess what times are changing, as seen with the passing of this law. There is no guarantee in a few decades when her grandfather and father die, Mae will adopt your 'males rule and girls should stay in the corner on a stool' attitude. She may, she may not, that is why it is a IF and not a When.

That certainly has to be the best royal-noble bridal dress I've seen in a long time. Unique, regal and stunning.

This high profile wedding was pretty casual and understated compared to lot of the weddings in Spanish high society. There was no dresscode for the gentlemen (a jacquet or so) no was there for the ladies: no mantillas, no peinetas, no hats. There was no traditional serenade, for example a pasodoble chant or by a flamenco group (this was Granada, heartland of Andalucía). As some others remarked: the bride wore no jewels from the ducal collection. Knowing that both wedding sides are mega-rich, it is refreshing it became no over the top hysterical American affair. Best festure: the dress. It was so non-"Say Yes To The Dress" and that is a huge compliment.

That wedding dress goes easily to the top five most ugliest wedding dresses I have ever seen. It looks so heavy and the fabric is so thick, really odd choice to a summer wedding.

Funny, it is in my top 5: a great design for an aristocrat wedding in a medieaeval city.
