I think it is a fauxpax to wear white as a dominating colour at a wedding if you are a guest. White should be exclusively reserved for the bride.

But it looked great though.

I have noticed that in europe at a lot of weddings, other women wear white . I don't think it is a problem there where as here in america it is made a big deal of. At one of the members of westlifes wedding the grooms mother wore white. I think maybe it is because you really cant up stage the bride she is the star of the day no matter what anyone else wears.:)

She's wearing black and white and I think she'd upstage the bride whatever she wore.

Has anyone noticed their body language lately? If body language was for sure revealing, than I would say that they are not getting on too well...

It is still very much arrogant and rude for a guest to wear white to a wedding - even in Europe.

Wearing white, in some countries, is okay. But to wear a full white skirt which resembles the bottom of a bridal gown is considered by some to be a faux pas.

Some may see this as Princess Mary trying to upstage the bride. I'm not so sure that is the case. May be it was an honest mistake to which Princess Mary really didn't think it was a big deal. But, compared to other wedding guests and their attire, Princess Mary really stood out. Not in a good way either. She looked nice; a tad showy from my point of view.

Not much Princess Mary can do now; the day is over. Time to move on. Let's hope she won't make that little mistake again in the future.:)

If you have a look at the photo of Princess Mary standing with the bride, there appears to be another guest also wearing white.(shock horror!!). I don't see the big deal, there is never any doubt who the bride is. Even if everyone wore white, as some weddings do ask of their guests on the invitation, as a theme, there is only one focus at a wedding and thats the people getting married. I also think that the cardigan is great, it looks less obvious if the Princess had worn white or black as this blends to her skin tone somewhat. I think that she looks beautiful.

She is the Crown Princess and can wear anything that pleases her husband and her mother in law; the bride should be deeply honored Mary showed up.

Mary's outfit is unusual but I noticed Frederik wearing what one person on this thread called a "sweater vest" so perhaps he likes to see her in a Cardigan? It goes without saying that she'd be reckless and insubordinate to wear something he disapproved of.

Some may strongly disagree with you.

Is it really an honor to have a "Princess" show up to your wedding? Or is it an honor to have your close friend be there to witness your special day? Let's try and be practical here. To me it would be the latter.

Frankly, in my view, it doesn't matter anymore. The wedding is over and done with; there is not much she can do.

The discussion will, however, continue.

:)

It doesn't matter what Mary wore..she can't win. If she wore a burlap sack..then she is being disrespectful to the bride; black/brown...people would have said she is in mourning...red/hot pink or anything like that..she is trying to stand out...beige it would have been its too bland of a colour. Maybe she shouldn't attend other people's weddings...then people would say that she thinks she is too good or arrogrant to attend anyone else's wedding and start speculating about the state of her marriage.

Let's face it....its the brides day...and really the only people interested in mary and frederick attending this wedding besides the press are the people on this board and those who follow the couple. I doubt the bride was thinking about what mary was wearing.

I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion..but really...its wonder anyone would want to be famous or marry into the royal family...so many people seem to know what they are thinking. I feel for Prince Christian's future bride.

As I'm scrolling down while I read and look at the pictures my thoughts are the same as the ones posted here. I agree 100 %.
Mary needs a helping hand in wardrobe every now and then just like Frederick. The color and lenght of the dress on this wedding borders in an open challenge to upstage the bride. I don't like the top of the dress, like dinner plates stuck with velcro. And the cardigan is horrible, is that the same one she used in Australia when she was at the hospital reading to kids?

That is a great choice.
The mix and mismatch seems to follow Mary lately, remember the baptism outfit: the summer skirt and the hat caused quite a stir here. Mary needs to get a wardrobe consultant as part of her staff

Well said! I agree with you. I like her elegance and grace. She looked lovely and just love her hair being style up like that. I am looking forward to see her in the next event. She is doing well and her fashion advisor is doing a great job . I find her interesting and never boring with her mix and match.

I do like Mary too but that does not make me blind . She needs to stop mixing up wardrobe things and getting out there with them. Brings up memories of Dianne Keaton in the movie Annie Hall

It is all in the mind and not necessary blind. Everyone has different taste and that is why the different fashion designers are there to cater to everyone needs and fancies. One man's meat may be another one's poison. There is no right and wrong in fashion. :)

I don't know, there is something about that dinner plate dress that just looks weird on a dress. :p

I admit that was funny but you have to be fair ... she is under a tremendous amount of pressure as Crown Princess. Hopefully if she produces a "spare" and continues to perform as she has been for the past few years she will become Queen (when Her Majesty departs us) so you should be very reverent.
