Maxima must be the most joyous royal bride I ever saw. She shone on her wedding day, the other ladies looked lovely too but Maxima's happiness was there for everyone to see. How wonderful!

Can anyone tell me why not a member of the Prussian Royal Family was invited? I knew that they were very close, the fact that Her Majesty Queen Juliana permitted the Kaiser asylum in the Netherlands when he fled at the end of the first world war and even defended him when the Allies wanted to expedite and prosecute him, Her Majesty requested the Ambassadors of the allies and lectured them the rights of Asylum and the fact that Her Majesty attended the wedding of the crown prince in Huis Doorn and that Her Imperial and Royal Highness Grand Duchess Kira, Princess of Prussia attended the wedding of then Princess Beatrix to Prince Claus. Why was no Hohenzollern invited to this historic wedding? His Royal Highness Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia should have been invited as head of the Prussian Royal House

Do we actually know who was invited or do we only know who accepted an invitation to attend?

I like that she was not afraid to be conservative and be modest.

Here's a replica:

I hate this one!The sleeves are see through and it makes it look cheap.

I'm not sure what the designers were thinking of with those sleeves! Again, for me, this dress is not much of a replica, but I can see how the neckline might have been inspired by Maxima's gown.

There is a wedding dress by Pronovias (Efeso, I think) that, to me, bears some resemblance to Maxima's gown. The neckline and fabric are different, but if the sleeves were shortened and lace was added down the folds of the skirt, I think it might make one of the best replica's of a royal wedding dress, and despite the differences, it would not be cheap looking!

The lace used used to belong to HM Queen Emma,the House of Orange Nassau has a extensive and precious collection of lace.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Willem-Alexander and Máxima's Wedding Guests

My best dressed was Caroline.The worst dressed was Mette Marit.Way too casual! My other favorites were,Madeleine,Beatrix, and Marilene.Victoria was way boring in that brown outfit.And the worst hat goes to Astrid.Other bad outfits were,Maria Theresa,Marie Chantal,QMII,Sonja,Margriet,Martha Louise,Cristina,Laurentien and Pincess Christina.

All in all,this was a very boring event for fashion.

This has got to be one of my favorite royal weddings.

I loved Maxima's dress.She looked amazing.It's one of my all time favorites.I love the fabric and the veil.I love how simple and modest it was.One of the most beautiful brides.
