Loved the kiss outside the church.

Love the couple.

After seeing the closeup of the dress I really do like it, although if the lace on top was the same color as the rest of the dress it would of looked much nicer, I think the wedding looked nice and overall was a very royal wedding! I just wished we could get one picture of the inside of the church!

Is the gentleman sitting next to the bridal couple on the group pic Alexander´s father? If so, I must say, though also bald, he seems to look much better like his son...
It´s nice to see that also in royal circles it´s not always about the surface but inner qualities seem to count, too. Yet I hope their children inherit their mother´s looks!

As a keen sportswoman P Nathalie doesn't seem to be very fashion forward but she looked beautiful. I really like her dress, especially color and cut (gorgeous train). Historic veil and tiara suited her a lot. She looked very regal.
Bride and groom were very happy and relaxed (I suppose that forgotten bouquet could be really stressful for other bride). Nice to see almost complete family. It seems to be nice royal gathering.
All the best to the couple

I like P Nathalie's dress. I'm always impressed when a bride can take a very traditional gown style and add a bit of oomph to it with something different --- in this case the heavier lace on bodice and sleeves. She looked very pretty. But then again, I liked Mabel's dress (not so much the big bows on the train) and thought it was very creative. Plus, she looked great.

ITA I love when royal brides adhere to tradition yet go fashion-forward.

Nice touch, if you ask me....

Thanks Viv - I understand, also it is a pity that we did not see tiaras - for us tiaraaddicts

Yes, that might be the reason - but why didn´t the ladies wear her orders/decorations? I mean, men without orders would have felt left out comparing the men who put on their orders...

There where also men who could probably have worn Orders, like some of the german nobles, the Fürst zu Waldeck and Pyrmont wore his tuxedo and no tailcoat. The dresscode was the same at the Wedding of Prince Philipp of Hesse and Laetita bechtolf a few years ago.

But we very rare see the tiaras owned by the german royal and noble families so this would have been a perfect occasion. Also at the danish royal Weddings and at the Wedding of Princess Alexandra SWB the families of the partners had no tiaras and still they where worn by the female guests who had one.

But didn't Alexandra marry in Denmark? Perhaps Nathalie asked for the tiaras to be left at home?

After looking more carefully at Nathalie's gown and, specifically, it's lace; it appears to be "tatting" done in a modern "starfish" pattern. Both my great-grandmother and grandmother used to do this type of lace. It is almost a lost art. Samples can be seen below. Click to enlarge samples.

When I saw this lace I thought maybe that is tatting having some vague rememberance of it. Thank you Kitty.

She did! Someone just reactivated the forum on Alexandra's wedding, where you can still see the pictures. IMO the difference is that Alexandra's wedding was hosted by Queen Ingrid, her ageing grand mother. The event to place in a more 'royal' context if you like and tiaras were to be expected. It's was the last big 'do' Queen Ingrid staged before she died on Danish soil and as usual she was pulling all the stops out!

Forgive my ignorance! I always thought that German families with royal and noble roots wore tiaras on these occasions. But maybe it's just the bride - if there is a family heirloom around??
