i am disappointed: this wedding looked dreary in that lightless hall. both wedding dresses were over the top with so much going on, the tiara was... most odd.

the pre-wedding dress of elia is the best so far of what she has worn but even so i don't find it that impressive. i compare with the pre-wedding dresses of victoria of sweden, stephanie of luxembourg, madeleine, etc and it just doesn't do much for elia. but at least it is somewhat 'streamlined' and lacking the stridence of her wedding dresses.

It is indeed a bit on the tacky side. The wedding is unbalanced seeing the marginal role the monarchy ever played in Albania (only one King for a very short time span). Albania is one of the poorest countries on the European continent. It all looks a bit like firing with a bazooka on a mosquito.

That is entirely your opinion.

To the couple it is their day of days,and I hope
their wishes and dreams they had for the day
came true today as for the rest of their lives.

I don't see how it is tacky. Should they have to limit the six of their wedding based on the length of reign? As I understand they were offered a semi state occasion. Former royals move in the same circles, are friends. Thus is why we see this group and no reigning royals. They invited people they know and are close to. Why is it tacky, when someone like the daughter of a rule has a similar wedding? They never reigned.


The bride was stunning. I loved her first gown, it was amazing in detail and I even like her tiara. Her second dress I fm d a but gaudy and eighties.

Pre wedding seemed great. I hope we get photos of the white tie tonight.

Of course, that is what this forum is for, to exchange thoughts.

That is not what I said. I used the phrase "a bit on the tacky side". But I am no native speaker. You used the phrase "a bit gaudy and eighties". Maybe that was a more befitting description.

thanks duke, those were exactly my thoughts when i wrote my last message. the dress is tacky in my opinion too. and the whole wedding seems off, as if they were tring to emulate the wedding you'd expect for reigning royalty (in an official building, by making it a press gathering, by inviting a number of royalty - thought mostly of, like them, dethroned monarchies). a more low key affair would have been better in my opinion. and definitely another dress - and whilst we are at it another tiara. the saphire goat tiara is just NOT a good wedding tiara. but i will let that one pass as the albanian family does not have many tiaras left, i believe, so they had to make do with what they had. shame, as a simple diamond tiara would have been nicer.

elia's wedding dress is apparently by Blerina Kllokoqi. her designs, in general, seem to be somewhat vulgar, showing too much skin. so considering what she normally does elia's dress isn't too bad. but it is disappointing she chose such a designer in the first place as she is not entirely appropriate for a royal wedding dress.

more from blerina:

If you read these two articles you'd think they were about two different weddings altogether

No one likes the tiara, but I don't really notice it tbh.

This wedding missed a wedding planner.
No religious Wedding ?
The civil wedding took 15 minutes and was the best day of the Lord major of Tirana.
Blauw Bloed wrote that Queen Sophia and Empress Farah waited patiently a long time before the wedding started and did not attend the dinner.
We will see this evening.
Princess Lea did attend with her Friend.
