I'm not sure, but looking at these photos, her veil seems to be one of those that were conceived to cover the face of the bride. For example, it looks more like the one of Infanta Elena, rather than the one of Infanta Cristina... Do you know anything about it?

The veil was especially created for this dress, by valentino, no historical provenance whatsoever, so I assume the idea was to put it on the head as it was done.

It was the most beautifil wedding I've ever seen, Maxima was so beatuful, I never cried before in a wedding but this one I could not help it, it was so sad to think sehe was marring and could not be with her parents, not only her but everyone who marries without the presence of any of the parents

It had the same effect on me, and half the country I believe (many people told that they got emotional during the wedding, esp. during the tango). For Maxima it was a sad thing that her parents weren't there but it couldn't be solved any other way.

Thank you for the video, The Watcher. It's a very beautiful (musical) piece and very emotional to see Maxima so moved by the music.

I have never seen a video of the wedding before, so this was a real treat! :) I do have one question though: In the video it seemed as if the tiara and veil were very heavy. Maxima's head seemed to be tilted in an odd manner or when she bent down to wipe away her tears, the movement did not seem easy, rather heavy. I'm sure that the veil being as long as it was added some weight, but was I just seeing things that the tiara and veil seemed to weight Maxima down a bit?

Yes, thank you so much Watcher. I'd never seen video footage of this wedding either, just photos, which are lovely, but you really feel what it was like more when you see a video. It was so sad Maximas father couldn't be there with them, and I am glad she didn't force herself not to cry. I think she is a truly wonderful person.

I didn't get that impression, she walked quite easily with the veil (Mathilde of Belgium had difficulties with it though), it seems to me as if she forces herself to keep her head up proudly.
