Just seeing all of this for the first time...thanks so much for the video clips!

I *LOVE* seeing this kisses on the balcony and how they REALLY kissed. Not just a quick smooch, but a KISS (or two or three!). Lovely, lovely...all of it.

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.
I agree, my best dressed was Caroline. I also thought Victoria's outfit was boring.

Just about "Adiós Nonino": Astor Piazzolla wrote this tango the night his father died. He was abroad in a tour, he cried when he knew and, being the great musician he was, wrote the music. Nonino was his father's nickname. The music has two parts, one faster and an adagio. It is said that the adagio represents the crying for the father's absence.
Piazzolla is one of the favourite composers of Maxima's father. And "Adios Nonino" is about a father's absence. It's easy to understand why she, and everybody around the world, was so moved.

The tango was composed with no lyrics, as most of the Piazzolla music. There were one or two versions with lyrics, but not very satisfying IMO. It's better to listen to the music alone because it expresses everything without words.

I hope you understand my English and thanks again for your kindness.
Adios Nonino was amazing. That was one of the best and most emotional parts of the wedding.

An unforgettable event!!!
I agree, this was one of the best royal weddings I have ever seen! Maxima's gown was definitely the perfect gown for a future queen.

Although not my personal favorite (for me, nothing eclipses Grace Kelly's wedding gown), I still think this gown is so perfect, and as it was so well received, I actually thought it would come in at number one!

In most European countries the only legal binding wedding is the one before the municipal registrar. The religious wedding has no any relevance for the law. The bride going down to the aisle and 'given away' by the father is really an anglosaxon phenomenon.

Many European ladies even find it insulting because they are adult, independent and well-educated ladies who have made the choice of their heart for their partner. The father has nothing to do in that. They do not need his permission and for sure not to be 'given away'.

But it is romantic and sometimes you see a father 'giving away' his daughter in church in the Netherlands, which is really nonsense because they already are married.

The most used custom is:

the groom arrives with a special car at the bride's parental home

the brides' parents greet the groom and he asks to see their daughter

the bride walks out of her parental home, the whole street gasps an applauds

the bride and groom together go to the municipal hall

they go to the church (if they want a church wedding)

they go to the reception

Henri M., This is very interesting information about when the bride and groom enters the church in The Netherlands.
Thank you for explaining about the most used custom.

My babysitter when I was growing up was of Dutch origin; my parents went to her and all three of her siblings' weddings. Their family lived out in the country, and all four receptions were at the local community centre just up the road, after the ceremony at their Christian Reformed church. The bride is escorted down the aisle by her father, and at the reception after a sit-down dinner; instead of dancing they do skits, and everything is over by 10 p.m. The Dutch also don't serve alcohol at their weddings. We still get a Christmas card from them (the parents) every year; they have something like 13 grandchildren! (I'll have to ask my mom for the exact number, but it's somewhere around there.) When my babysitter got married, she married a man who already had two boys from his previous marriage, and they had 3 or 4 children together.
