The dress is indeed very beautiful, although personally I don't like all those embroidery, especially in the front I think it's a little bit too much, I love the dress shape and the veil and it's detail on the veil and the dress back. I also think the tiara should have been placed differently. But overall it was all very beautiful and dreamy, which is what characterizes Mr. Saab, the most important thing is that Princess Stéphanie loves and feels good in the dress. I wish all the best for both of them that they have a loving and caring marriage and always support one another.

FYI, this was not a high mass. The wedding of Archduke Imre was a high mass.

I'm sorry I missed the balcony scene! Now the feed is gone. Oh well

No doubt Henri and MT can't believe their firstborn is married. It's a great day for Luxembourg.

Thanks for the clarification on this. As I watched the wedding without sound, I had no idea if the celebrants chanted or not. Its been years as I said.

They used a lot of traditional music but even if they had used the Latin chants, the mass itself was not in the latin/tridentine form (which makes it a high mass or not). However, it was still a very reverent nuptial mass.

Stephanie didn't have that "wow" factor for me. The dress was beautiful but something was lacking. The hair was nice but I would have preferred the veil on the top (not at the back) and her makeup was very muted. Still elegant but understated and underwhelming for ME.

The one-minute silence, at the beginning of the ceremony, for Stephanie's mother, who passed away recently, was so touching! It really brought tears to my eyes.

It was a wonderful ceremony, I enjoyed it so much! The church is magnificent!

May I ask this here: What is Stephanie's full title now? Will Guillaume add a title upon his marriage? Thanks!

I really want to like Stephanie's dress but it just didn't quite make it for me. Although it was nice it is never going to make it into my top 5 dresses list.

I loved it from the back but I found the front just a bit too much with all the embroidery. It was a dress that for me looked better from a distance than up close.

I know everyone at the moment gushes over Elie Saab and I loved the gown that was designed for last nights gala dinner but the wedding dress seemed a bit too similar. Maybe I would have liked the wedding dress more if I didn't feel that I saw the style on a lot of ladies last night.

I was wondering but am I correct in assuming Stéphanie wore her mothers ring on the small white-gold necklace ?

I believe it was the ring she wore on her middle finger on the left hand. Her engagement ring was on her right hand (ring finger) and Guillaume put the wedding band on her left hand ring finger.

Stéphany is an old royal school lady. Her hands are very gracious, she takes control of her emotions and only uses her eyes to express them. I was surprised seeing her live images. She looks prettier "in action". There is an appeal that I had not seen before.
I liked everything about the wedding. Well done Louxemburg!

Thank you very much for this!
But now I can't help but wondering: how did the Bourbon-Parma title come up? Does anyone know?

cant wait to see pictures from the wedding ball, the bride's cake, and official pictures and portraits.
i think we've got pictures of all european heirs cutting their wedding cakes, so i hope we get a chance to see a picture (i dont recall Mathilde's however)

It is exactly what came to my mind when i saw 2min from the civil ceremony. In pics i thought that she was nothing special, but while moving she has a real charm and aura!

I forgot to comment on the music. It was a great pleasure! I'm jealous of Catholic religious ceremonies, their music alone is really something. I even envy their funerals, Mozart & Haydn's Requiems are so magnificent!
