This from one of the Events before the wedding but not the Evening before. The Evening before the wedding was the Soiree, where they all wore Tiaras and Orders, at Altshausen. The photo above was made at Friedrichshafen.

The red and white dress makes her stand out on those pictures. Very contrasting to everything and everyone else around. Your eyes just focus on her as the center of the picture because of that dress. They also look great as a couple.

The fact I find interesting about this marriage (please forgive me if it has been mentioned before) is that it united two branches of the Württemberg family - the last reigning branch and its successor.

Princess Marie's great-grandmother was Pauline zu Wied, the sole surviving child of Wilhelm II, the last King of Württemberg. Three of Pauline's first cousins (on her mother's side) were Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, Princess Alice Countess of Athlone and Duke Carl Eduard of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

This is what I find fascinating about royal genealogy - tracing family lines is like working on a jigsaw puzzle.

Welcome to the Forums David_B, and no, this relationship between the two branches hasn't been mentioned before.
Any insights and knowledge you share will be most appreciated. :)
