Loved how Maria Teresa was blowing them kisses
I think you hit the nail on the head; even though this was a happy day, Stephanie more than likely felt the loss of her mother most acutely. It's devastating enough that the Countess passed away, but more so since it was so close to the wedding.

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.
Absolutely! Personally, I'm a fan of subtle, stolen glances and small, intimate gestures. Less says so much more
, and that was definitely the case here. The smiles between the bride and groom were enough to say quite clearly that they adore each other.

I think it's almost unfair to compare the two. I think both ceremonies were beautiful and joyous,but in different ways. This one had a more bitter-sweet feel to it.

Yes, but tv won't broadcast it. It took the couple to long to get on the balcony according to the tv people :)

I remember there was applause when Philippe and Mathilde of Belgium left the church. So perhaps this is a Belgian/Luxembourgish tradition?

Congratulations Guillaume & Stephanie
A wonderful couple. Stephanie was born to be a princess.
A great wedding. Noble, natural, public respectful, charming, simple and very nice visuals bride, groom and a very nice ceremony.

Both eyes shone with happiness. The groom were very happy and excited. The whole family happy and wonderful.

Loved the dress and veil. Stephanie's dress is romantic and fairy tale like, absolutely beautiful.

I loved Guillaume taking hold of her hand so often. Loved MT's open adoration for her daughter-in-law. Loved too that Guillaume and MT arrived together and walked down the aisle together.

Loved the balcony scene. They both looked so relaxed and enjoying themselves.

Wonderful royal wedding!!

Wow what a beauitful wedding. But it was a bit long, you can see that on some of the royals faces as they were watching. It was funny to watch tht some of the royals sung along as other didn't, Maxima looked like she was enjoying the ceremony though.

Stephaine is beautiful, I have neever seen a more stunning dress but she look so emotionaless.

Love the dress! Elie Saab is an amazing designer and her dress maybe my all time favorite from here on out! Great ceremony and what a gorgeous couple! Congratulations!

Ahhhhh.. nothing is better than a royal wedding and this was one that had a bit of everything in it. I'd almost forgotten how long a Catholic High Mass could be and this one omitted nothing. The telltale signs were there as I did see a few people the cameras panned over that looked seriously close to taking a nap and a few times the bride and groom did seem to have glassed-over expression on their faces as if they were a million miles away somewhere. Stephanie did look the most serious and Guilluame couldn't seem to take his eyes off her and she'd redirect his gaze back to in front of them. There definitely was an aura between them of closeness and there was the thumb caressing too that was so dominant in Victoria and Daniel's wedding. I think though as far as sensing deep emotions, it had to be when the camera panned to Stephanie's father. I could sense so many emotions running through him and perhaps the most touching part of the ceremony is when he took part in giving his daughter away to the groom.

The wedding dress was a total winner.. I've always found lace to be so romantic and the color of the dress made it seem so timeless. What I didn't like so much was the way the veil was worn. It was so beautiful but somehow to me didn't look right coming out of the middle of the back of her head. Pure class was she didn't have to pick up the dress going up into the cathedral. She did the little kick dress, step up to make sure she didn't step on it.

I think the reason the the Grand Duchess wore the color she did is that it went with the national color theme. The flower girls and pages were in the colors of Luxemborgh and MT's dress closely matched the color of the pages breeches I think.

About applause in the church, I think that's been relaxed since they added the sign of peace to the liturgy. Its a celebration and time for all to come together in peace and celebration so applause for the newly weds in my experience has happened more often than not.

All and all a very beautiful ceremony.

Wonderful royal wedding!!
I have exactly the same opinion about the wedding like you. It was a really beautiful wedding! Just loved the balcony scene, all those kisses. They seem to be really happy together! Stephanie was stunning, love her dress. And Guillaume was more handsome than ever! They are and will be a great couple (and parents)!

I'm definitely in love with this couple!
They are so genuine and even "innocently" looking but very much in love.
At the Church ceremony and afterwards there was a very special atmosphere.
I like Stephanie's wedding -dress, its lace, it was exactly what I supposed her to wear, it suited her just perfectly.They really complement each other and it's clear that their love will grow even more with years, they are just at beginning, especially liked the way Guillaume looked at his bride, equally with tenderness and passion.
The Grand-Duchess's dress looked very nice as well.
