The Bride still looks nervous, I was hoping she would be more comfortable as the ceremony progresses, but not as nervous as the Duchess of Cornwall at her wedding to Prince Charles.

I think in the beginning Stephanie was doing her best not to fall apart. It must be terrible celebrating this day without her mother, especially when she lost her only a short time ago.
When it was time for the vows she became much more relaxed and there were many many sweet looks between the two

Loved how Maria Teresa was blowing them kisses

I don't think we should expect a ceremony that was as grand and emotionally overwhelming as that of CP Victoria and PDaniel. That was once in a lifetime occasion with completely different circumstances. I doubt we will EVER see a ceremony that emotinally overwhelming. IMO it's not wise to compare weddings, because each couple is different.

We're entitled to our difference of opinion.

Actually, I do have Victoria and Daniel's wedding in my mind as the most romantic wedding. I know, different circumstances. Stephanie was so severe at the beginning. She hardly looked at Guillaume.

The Grand Ducal family certainly appear very happy and relaxed which is lovely to see.

An impressive occasion.
Very true, people react differently. I personally don't think the wedding is impressive compared to other royal weddings I've seen over the years. Although this should go without saying, it's just my opinion.

Please guys, don't compare. Luxembourg, their royal family are so private and so quiet I think everything we'e got today has been a treat for us all. Sweden, their family, Victoria and Daniel have been through a lot and they've been in the public eye for years prior to marriage.

Completely different circumstance, completely different couples.

This for me personally, has been the most romantic wedding i've seen of royals. However I never saw V&D's.

Love the presentation of the bouquet to Mary.

I think we're entitled to compare. Everyone doesn't have to agree. It's okay. No one said anything disparaging. Let's lighten up.

Papal blessing!

That's what I'm saying lumutqueen. I'm certainly grateful that we were able to watch this wedding.
On another note, you definetly should watch V&D's wedding.

Comparing weddings, how lovely the couple look, how much affection they showed each other is nasty IMO, especially on their wedding.

Saying you don't think the couple on the day showed enough affection is fine.

In some angles, the Bride reminds me of a young Martha Stewart.

And we're all posting our opinions here because it's a forum to do so. No need to police what we're posting and call others "nasty." Good day to you.

Congrats to Gui and Stephanie! Have Imre and Katie been spotted?

Stephanie must be under a lot of pressure especially with all the royals attending, live tv event and all the photographers. She hardly has been in the public eye with all focus on her. She must be thinking of a million different things and her mother not being there must also be very difficult.

Personally I think she is doing great. I don't believe she needs to show more emotions than she is now. I believe the more emotions they show becomes to look fake and a show to me.

Indeed, Prince Daniel underwent a Kidney Transplant in May 2009.
And I was able to watch their wedding live too.

Its a pity the train of the dress (I think would be too heavy) would be carried. I would like to see the effect of it as she walks.

Did they come out of a side door ?

I personally found the entire occasion to have been beautifully performed. To me it has been distinctly Luxembourgish and thankfully so. For it's size, I found there to be an atmosphere of real intimacy between hosts and guests; both at the gala banquet yesterday evening and today in the cathedral. It's been grand without having been ostentatious.

Without doubt, Luxembourg is a state of significant majesty and granduer.

Very serious wedding. Such a contrast to the triumphal wedding of the Cambridges.
May they have a wonderful marriage.
