The wedding gown of Princess Stephanie was beautiful. She looked beautiful. I didn't get to see the wedding but saw pictures of the wedding. Liked MT outfit.

Because Felix of Bourbon-Parma married Charlotte the Grand -Duchess of Luxemburg -the great-grandmother of Guillaume. Felix was a brother of Empress Zita of Austria. Try wikipedia under FELIX OF BOURBON-PARMA.

The bride looked amazing. It is great that Stephanie chose Elie Saab to design the dress.

not at all actually. In Italy we do it all the time, and we do it right after the end of the exchanging of the vows, when the priest declare that the bride and the groom are husband and wife.
Being Catholic, I'm used to that. We have the possibilty to have a wedding service outside the mass, but it's really uncommon. And I can tell you that this was a "nice" mass, pretty quick actually and enjoyable.
I can understand that for those who are not Catholic can be quite tough, especially because they probably don't get many of the things that happen during the mass, or why we do them. But I think MT and the spouses (I'm sure they arranged the wedding together LOL) did a great joy to make sure the whole ceremony was flowing and not at all boring.
For example I found Felipe and Letizia's wedding more boring than this one.

Anyway, does someone know why some of the musics (the Alleluija before the Gospel and the song during the communion) were in Italian? Any particular reason or just a matter of musical taste?

Random thought: Princess Tessy looked very much pregnant with that dress!!!

May I ask this here: What is Stephanie's full title now? Will Guillaume add a title upon his marriage? Thanks!
It really is emotional for the famiy when something like that is done.. especially with a recent death. When my son married, both the bride and her mother lit a remembrance candle for her father before she got to the altar. As soon as it was lit, it started to sprinkle, then rain. As the wedding was outdoors under a small gazebo, everyone had to crowd around the bride and groom for the ceremony. My daughter-in-law still insists that it was her dad wanting it to be a very close wedding and he was there with her.

I imagine that moment was very emotional for the de Lennoy family.

I had trouble watching the wedding on the computer due to connection problems but then I was able to watch the wedding Live on my Ipod Touch which was great.

I thought HGD Stephanie looked very beautiful. Guillaume looked so happy to see his bride arrive at the alter. Good luck to them both.

We do it in Ireland too. It adds gaiety to the ceremony. It can also help to ease any nervous tension that weddings can sometimes bring.

could it be that Stéphanie wore the same earrings Maria Teresa wore at her wedding? They look very similar to me, but I can't find a close up picture of MT's wedding to confirm

And they didn't even report this correctly. They noted Stephanie's father walked her down the aisle.

For me it was a beautiful traditional catholic service. They chose beautiful music.
Stephanie looked very concentrated. The moments her mother was mentioned were very emontional. Guillaume seems very very happy with his bride.

I notice she has her wedding bouquet back on the official picture. She gave it away to Our Lady of Luxembourg during the mass.

Missed seeing the ceremony live as I was away on holiday and only got back this afternoon. But there has been so much to see on this thread that I don't feel that I have missed too much. Thanks to all those who have put up links to pictures, etc. I don't think you can compare weddings - each one has its own ethos. I thought Guillaume looked very smart in his uniform, as did Stephanie's brother, who gave her away. Although S is not conventionally beautiful, she is sweet and charming, and managed well on her first showing on the international stage.

I was a bit concerned at first, when I was looking at the pictures of yesterday's gala, that there was no representation from the British Royal Family, as the two RFs are actually pretty friendly (from World War II). However, I was delighted to see that Edward and Sophie were at the wedding. (The Queen and Prince Charles practically never go to European functions, nor do Prince Andrew and The Princess Royal). It would be nice to see the Cambridges and Prince Harry attending these weddings, etc., but William and Harry are both in the military and so can't be available, and probably Catherine doesn't want to attend on her own.
