You are so right - if they had invited the younger generation - Felipe, Pavlos, etc. - maybe they would have wanted to bring their young kids and so on ...
It looks as if there were no children present at this wedding. Some couples do not want young children runnning around at their weddings and it is understandable.
Bravo to Aimone and Olga for standing their ground and having the kind of wedding they wanted.

I am sure there were young people and children. We only saw a few pics of the wedding, that is the problem.
Aimone's sisters attended with their 8 children, but I only saw one pic with three of them. I haven't even seen a pic of Alexandra's children, though they were there. Besides, I am sure that both Aimone and Olga invited their young best friends.
As far as it regards the Sofia's and Constantine's children, I wonder why they should have invited them. As they didn't want a large number of guests, why should they have invited their distant relatives?
Respecting the protocol, they invited Constantine that is the Head of Greek Royal family, though he is also Aimone's Godfather, Amedeo' first cousin and Olga's second cousin.
I think, Olga and Aimone were correct.
They couldn't invite the whole Greek and Italian Royal families if they didn't want too many guests, IMO.

Have to agree with Odette and pamk; when having a small wedding you have to draw a line somewhere and stick to it. My wedding would have gone from 40 people to 120 had we invited our aunts, uncles, and cousins. Because the line was so clear people understood, and I'm sure the extended family of Olga and Aimone understands as well.

Do we have any news?Is the couple going to live in Moscow?Olga is a journalist,I guess she can't live there permanently.

Olga had an article printed in the Vanity Fair of 2 issues ago. Perhaps she can work out of Moscow and travel a lot.

Seems like (from the photos we have seen) that some of the uncles and aunts were there. The ones who were not there, were Aimone's and Olga's generation. Besides their siblings no cousins were present.
If they wanted to keep it small they did a very good job.
With regard to Maria Gabriella, I believe she was the only sister of VE who was vocal about her brother and supports Amedeo. Perhaps it was a gesture of gratitude.

Does anyone else believe that this thing on Olga's head makes her look just like Mercury (the ancient Greek god) or I'm the only bad person here??LOL

What thing? Are you referring to the olive branch wreath she wore instead of a crown??
Looking at these photos again I believe it was one of the most unique bridal outfits.

And I believe because she supports his father as head of and heir to the Italian throne. I am so happy they finally got married. Her dress and head piece is, interesting, but they make a beautiful couple. Wishing them a lifetime of lasting happiness and love.

I am sure he was but obviously he was not posing for the official pictures. Actually I do not believe I saw any photos of his father or stepmother in any of the pictures so far.
I have to wait for Point de Vue which arrives on the pony express a month late.........

MAfan, I promise as soon as the Point de Vue comes I will tell you who the "Koumbaros" was. I only saw one picture in the Church and it did not have anyone standing behind them at the time. There was a man's hand holding the crown on picture #3.........LOL
Mind you nothing was mentioned on Greek TV or Greek widely read papers yet.

You are right, there is an article on Point de Vue of this week and there is also a small pic on the cover.
Point de vue

Is " koumbaros" the Greek word for best men?

Yes if it is a man is koumbaros if it is a woman is koumbara. I saw a man's hand over Aimone's head.
Point de Vue was too busy to devote a full page for them. Grrrrr!
