I personally think that most "princess" wedding dresses are too conservative for my taste. She looked beautiful, but I wasn't crazy about the dress itself. The jewelry and tiara and veil made the whole "package" look nice ,but the dress itself was just ok.

Mary looked absolutely regal on her wedding day. Simple yet very elegant. I admire her style, her poise and her natural beauty. Frederik and Mary could barely keep their hands off each other. I can see true love in this marriage.

Hello everyone, today I&#39;ve read a strange article in a spanish newspaper: El mundo, it says that Mary&#39;s family (which are medium class ones and do not have lots of money for this kind of event) did a loan to buy the tickets, clothes and everything they needed to be able to assist to this event. The one that was interviewed was the husband of one of her sisters. It is a very weird thing.*

that article is posted somewhere on this board. Mary&#39;s brother said something along the lines of having to morgage his house to pay for the travel expenses. It is a very sad thing. You would think that the royal family would help them pay for some of the expenses. Surely they have the funds available to do so. It is very sweet however, that Mary&#39;s family was willing to do such a thing in order to be a part of her big day.
yes well she could probably pay them for their troubles now couldn&#39;t she... [/b][/quote]
I&#39;m Mary and Frederik will pay it off. CP Frederik just got a huge pay raise. I can&#39;t imagine Mary allowing her family to remain in debt because of expenses in connection with her wedding.

Yes, this was a very lovely wedding. But there is one thing that struck me as odd. Mary&#39;s processional music. She walked down the aisle to Handel&#39;s &#39;Zadok the Priest&#39;. This is actually a coronation hymn. It was played at Queen Elizabeth&#39;s coronation in 1953. I beleive the orchestra burst forth with it as the Queen came to the center of the abbey, near the throne. I have to check my store-bought video. For those who may not be familiar with this piece, it begins: "Zakok the Priest and Nathan the Prophet, anointed Solomon, King." It seems an odd choice for a bridal procession. Nevertheless, it was a stirring moment when the doors of the church opened and there was Mary with her father... and the music began. It was so majestic, that I didn&#39;t think about this until later. If anyone has read why this particular Handel peice was chosen, please let us know.

We were more likely to see more Arab leaders in Spain because of the historical connections between Spain and Arabs to begin with.
I think many Arab leaders will attend the Spanish royal wedding because of what happened on March 11th. They probably want to show the Spanish as well as the rest of the world that they too are anti-terrorism. That may also be the reason why the Queen of Britain and many other worldly leaders are attending as well. To show support for the Spanish people.
That&#39;s a pretty ugly history, and Saudi Imams have not been shy in preaching their desire for Andalusia to return to Muslim control.

The speeches were beautiful--did anyone notice how the Queen said that Mary could find *refuge* in their family if she needed it?
The Queen is such a lovely person. Mary is very lucky to have her for a mother-in-law. Their relationship does seem to be based on a lot of mutual respect and affection.
Wasn&#39;t that Henrik that said that? It&#39;s all the same anyway. I loved how the Queen said that she always hoped that they would be worthy of Mary&#39;s trust. When she said that, the camera panned over to Mary and it looked as if she mouthed "awww". [/b][/quote]
OH, let me listen to the speech again.

Well usually this wouldn&#39;t be played as processional music, but they wanted something relating to the British musical tradition and for obvious reasons didn&#39;t want "Here comes the bride".

There&#39;s lots of words on the reception if you look back over the last few pages. As far as her going-away outfit is concerned, if it&#39;s true that they slipped away in the middle of the night (as reported here), the chances are that nobody has a clue what it looked like.

When the couple left Fredensborg she was wearing a very casual outfit, a blue shirt and sand-coloured pants, her husband was wearing a blue sports-jacket and light-coloured pants. We saw this in the TV-transmission on DR1 in Denmark.

I hope that she pays for them--it must have been close to 100,000 Euro, no?

A question for any Aussies on the board:

Re purchasing a copy of the wedding:

I&#39;ve rung Channel 7:"No, we played it twice, don&#39;t have rights to it". I called David Jones (they had no idea), I&#39;ve emailed SBS (Marcom) and am awaiting a reply...

I am cautious of purchasing from the link already posted because of DVD regions... can you think of anywhere else I can try to see if they will be making this wedding available to buy?

my VCR died and my tape is all mangled up. :(
(I taped the SBS presentation which was not particularly informative unfortunately).

Any info would be appreciated.

tia

:)

One of the best parts of the wedding day was the waltz,&nbsp; Brudevalsen or Bridal Waltz, at the dinner ceremony. It was written by Niels Gade for the 1854 Ballet,&nbsp; A Folk Tale, which is about a nobleman who falls in love with a girl who was brought&nbsp; up by trolls. Anyway, it is a well-known waltz. And af this wedding as at the wedding of Joachim and Alexandra, the guests are placed into a heart around the dance floor. Then the bride and groom come out and while they are dancing, the guests slowly move closer and closer to the couple until they mess up or can not dance.


To hear a sample of this waltz, go to

http://www.mille-soeren.dk/11_Midi/0...rudevalsen.mid
I love that waltz! Thanks for the link Dennism! :flower:

Can anyone give me as much information about the composer, the piece, the play, or even another clip of it? I positively fell in love with it.

Saudi Imans perhaps but they are only a small part of the 1 billion strong that makes up the Muslim world community. And in sheer numbers, a minor one. Most Muslims and non-Muslims realize the gem that was Al-Andalus, Granada, Cordoba in world history and we´d be not too wrong to have such a time when the 3 monotheistic religions co-mingled and lived in relative harmony and created wonderful works of art, philosophy and architecture in this world again.
