Maria Theresia looks identical to a young Gloria. The Colbert couple looked ridiculous, but to each his own. If I were looking at the photos and didn't know that royalty and very old fortunes involved, I'd say it looked like any ceremony

The guests look like "royal clowns" So many fun and crazy outfits there!

For me Tatiana was the best dressed of them all, so classy, simple and pretty. I don't think she is pregnant. Just because she has bigger belly, doesn't mean she is pregnant, instead she is like most of us and not hollywood-y or royalty perfect body. I admire her for being natural and happy with her own body.
You sure took the words right out of my mouth.......that is the ugliest wedding dress I have ever seen, what the heck was she thinking...........even the guests look like they are circus entertainers putting on a show to see who stood out the best and who got the most attention from the media circus...............and GTNT, a peasant dress, ..

Quite awkward for the society reporter Marie Waldburg: She predicted in some German TV-interview that no first class royal will attend because "those aren´t really friends of MT and Hugo and they will only invite nobility who is friends with the T+Taxis family...." and as far as I can remember she among others strictly ruled out the Casiraghis....

I think Maria's dress was tasteful really for TNT wedding dress (it suited her and she looked very sweet with Albert and Hugo towering over her).

Agreed though Gloria should have bought a nice new outfit from chanel/valentino for the wedding of her eldest child. Im all for embracing Bravarian heritage but it looks like she couldnt be bothered spending the money.

Albert looked smart and Elisabeth was ok (if one overlooks the gloves).

I noticed the dress of the guests in general was less elegant than at other Gotha weddings (there doesnt seem to have been a strict dress code).

In my opinion if the casiraghis and the hannovers came it is because they like Maria herself not because it was a society wedding. The german magazines like Bild and Bunte make it into a competition and pour a mixture of sugar and suspicision on every wedding they cover.

Who cares about the guest list as long as Hugo's family was not crossed off the guest list to make room for d-list celebrities and nobles.

The exiled royals and the highest gotha will probably come for Albert's wedding and the magazines will go crazy.

Princess Maria Theresia is a joyous bride!
I like the fact that the pews of St. Joseph Church were decorated with roses.
How old is St. Joseph Church?

Does anyone know where the wedding breakfast/ reception will be held. I imagine at St Emmeran palace. The ballroom there is quite spectacular.

while i wouldn't have chosen it for myself, i actually like the idea of the patterned dress for MT. the pattern is pretty and the whole thing is original and rule breaking - which is totally T+T.

I do like her veil and bouquet though, and she herself looks lovely. On another note, I found it interesting that Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana attended - do we know what their connections to the new couple are?
i believe they must have met in london, as Andrea and tatiana lived (still live?) there. i would imagine they frequented the same circles, i somehow expected them to be there for the wedding.

It was a bit painful to see all these traditional cultural clubs like Schützenvereine, Musikvereine, Zunften, Gilden, etc. turning up at this wedding to bring a nice homage to the wedded couple and be confronted with a totally out-of-place us-kowns-us metropolitan "trash chic" style of people. I wonder what these people will say, when back in their homes, about the creatures they saw in their nice traditional village and for whom they offered their free time...

Anyway, congratulations to bride and groom. I hope that this clownesque wedding was the dream-start they wanted. For the rest it had nothing to do with a royal wedding in the ancient House Thurn und Taxis.

With that she was right because the Casiraghis are neither royal nor noble...

It is a "new" church build in traditional (neo-baroque) style, the first Holy Mass in there was in 1929.

Schloss St Emmeram lies between München and Nürnberg, Schloss Garatshausen is more than 200 km south from this place between München and Innsbruck (Austria). From point of logistics (I think) the wedding reception was also held at Schloss Garatshausen: http://static.panoramio.com/photos/large/76179449.jpg

Schloss St Emmeram is absolutely so much more spectacular indeed. I think the wedding of the Fürst will be held there.

I suppose that you are projecting your own preconceptions and insecurities about 'metropolitan trash chique' on these people. Why on earth would they make fun of people who are members of traditional cultural clubs? That a few bohemians actually had some fun and dressed up a bit out of the box only added to the fun of such an occassion, these bohemians make there own rules, as they should.

I actually like the wedding dress. It is Vivienne Westwood, it is different and it suits the bride. Much more bold than the umptieth strapless white gown with lace and yet not over the top. It suits the bride who seems to be artistic. The groom himself was dressed properly. They make a rather handsome couple btw.
It is always a joy to see Gloria, no matter what she is wearing. She seems to have such a zest for life.

Although I expect that Albert's wedding will be more grand I still expected more royal guests. Gloria visited a lot of weddings, often escorted by her daughters.

Because I have been (and still am) in those traditional clubs and they tend to be conservative. I know what I am speaking about. I see you come from Amsterdam, I guess you will agree with me that the average person living around the Starnberger See have a completely different worldview and especially the people living here attached to Schützenvereine, they are even more conservative than average.

They offer their free time to bring homage to a princely wedding. They line up, make music, form a guard of honour. Look at the villagers and vereine in this picture standing guard for hours, in rain even, anyway I hope I am able to have my very own personal opinion on this, like you may have. Merci.


This was so very tasteful:

This is not clownesque:

I don't disagree with you that people who live on the Bavarian countryside will have a different view of life than those who live in Amsterdam. However, your original point was that these metropolitan people must look down on the people who are wearing traditional costumes. That is your own observation and I do not know why you would think such a thing.

I agree that some of the outfits were not of my taste either, but it is hardly the end of the world. Neither is it an affront to the ancient house of TuT or an affront to the villagers in Bavaria as you seem to suggest. There are worse things happening in the world than a lady in a fish-dress.

You don't need to convince me that some outfits are a bit outlandish, I agree with that. But what is the problem with that? That people should dress up in a way that you -or I- find fitting (gloves, hat, pearls I assume) or to please the villagers apparently is beyond me.

These people of the traditional cultural clubs know that this is the daughter of "punk-princes" Gloria von T&T) getting married, so they probably aren't as perplexed at the look of the guests as you are
I'm sure there will be some people there who would have liked an old-fashioned wedding better, but i'm also sure that there will be people who like the "zest" the current T&T family shows, they are by no means stuck in the past pining for "the ol' days" and know you can't dwell on what has been and will never return..

Imo that was not what d-e-p said... in the original post it was the other way round, what will the traditional people think of the metropolitan lot...

You are correct, so my apologies for that misunderstanding.

Personally I liked the extravagant wedding dress with it's softly coloured rose print. And a conventional look à la Cambridge was never to expected from MT. As for the guests: I'm sure that the bridal couple as well as Gloria enjoyed the fun and carnival.

As for the people in national costume: they were not forced to show up, and surely they knew what to expect, because Gloria and her style are so well known that it is impossible to ignore it. They decided to attend and probably don't regret it, even if they shake their heads at some of the outfits.
