here are the first paragraphs.


a historical day

there weren't tears in the eyes of the bride and the groom, but the god of the rain cryied in the wedding. 22-m, day when letizia became the future queen of asturias, will be historic because of the quantity of rain at the entrance of letizia. it couldn't be a celebration full of people and sun but the royal house could shorten the distances between people and nobility. who saw the faces of the royal family waiting for the bride? who wasn't in that moment one of them? to say that known phrase 'i'm a happy men' the prince had many feelings to think about and lots of hours to think about. the wedding for the prince started at 6 o clock in the morning, only 4 or 5 hours after the gala dinner.
the guests started arriving at 9 o clock. some of them came by bus and others in private cars. there wan't any protocol in the entrance, sportsmen, politics and princes entered without distinction. the rain was only a threat and people hoped that the luck of the king was present that day also. the rain started when sofia and felipe entered in the cathedral. sofia couldn't and didn't want to go faster, although rain was starting to fall.

That's what I am wondering.

Are the decorations supposed to represent something?

My sister just saw the cake and said if she were the bride she would have cried when she saw that cake. My sister thinks it looks awful. I kind of agree. I probably wouldn't have even known it was supposed to be a cake if I wouldn't have been told.

It's more of a pastry competition showpiece rather than a wedding cake. I like it, but I don't think it fits the mold for a wedding...It's a pretty modern thing to do.

that is not a cake that is FLAN.. it is a spanish desert.. that is custard.. with a caramel type of coating on top .. there were several types of deserts that were created just for the wedding .. one was a type of nougat candy that is almond flavored it is popular there in Spain and Italy .. as well as the flan .. its light and quite delicious. There is also a cake called tres leches.. meaning literally three milk .. it is made with cream and milk and is kinda wet but very very delicious. the desert in the pic is flan .. not cake as we are used to in the term cake.

Here's an article in Spanish of Felipe and Letizia's wedding. Is there anyone who has the time that would be willing to translate this article into English?

I watched the wedding again over the last week and I must say that I think it is underrated. It was quite musical and serious and religious. I also liked the glimpses of pre-wedding dinenr that I saw. The royals at their various tables. It was nice to see them in a more real situation.

I'm sure there is one somewhere, I just need to search more for it. I caught the tail end of the ceremony on Univision, but I would really like to see the beginning.

Gabriella,

The Norwegian television website has most of the whole wedding ceremony. It starts with the major royal guests coming to the church and ends somewhere during the second hour maybe. I'm not sure. The address is http://www.nrk.no/ . Go to the left hand side and click on Nett-tv. A box will show up. Scroll down on the left until you come to a picture of a crown that says Kongehus Alt om de kongelige beside it. Then click on Kronprinsbryllup i Spania. That takes you to either the pre-wedding dinner or the wedding. You have to be registered with NRK to view these. It's free.

If you want to see other clips from the wedding like the balcony appearance, exiting the church, etc., that aren't on the NRK site then here are some links to see clips of those.

Attendants outfits inspired by painting?

For some reason, I seem to remember that it was written somewhere that the outfits of the attendants were inspired by a painting.

Does anyone remember this and know what painting it was that, reportedly, inspired the outfits?

I think it was a painting by Goya. Or another Spaniard. Here are some nice photos I found online. I´m sure they´ve been posted before.
