They look a lot more relaxed during the informal bits.
not to forget a camera pointed directly at your face....

Thanks for the link. Poor Laurent. Claire looked nice, so far she has the best hat. Mathilde looked great as well, so far best dressed. Was expecting more from Maxima, that golden mustard color did nothing for her IMO. Both Sophies' (Wessex and Liechtenstein) look great. That's the most glamorous I've seen Sophie of L look but I wish she hadn't worn the long overcoat. Are there any pics of Matte-Marit, Marie and Mary?

Thank you!

I am really enjoying the wedding. I think prince Charlene is more relaxed now than at the beginning, although she is too serious at some point. Fingers crosses that this marriage will be full of love.

Random thougts:

Love the dress and the broche is just beautiful.
CP is a nadsome man :)
The music has been spectacular!

Albert seemed to be very moved by the choral offering.

OK, now I'm tearing up. I love the Ave Maria sung by anyone.

I agree. The whole thing reminds me of those pictures of Charles and Diana on foreign trips toward the end of their marriage when they were constantly looking in opposite directions.

I'd have liked to have the Valium concession at this event!

I don't like the bridal dress !!!
It doesn't have style. It looks like a pretty normal evening gown you can get in every department store here. The neckline looks like one of her former gala dresses and the pearl and crystal stitchings up to the breast looks cheap. The train starting in the middle of her big back and accentuating it even more is not an example of big tailor-art.
The veil is boring and the jewellery in her hair ??? Why not a tiara like Mary, Maxima, Letizia.......
The dress was supposed to make history....it makes me gaping

Just by the way: I had those Diana thoughts, too.

I never thought that certain rumors might be true...but when I saw her !!!! I'd like to hugh her. The poor women. And nervousity was definitely NOT the reason for her mood. Look at his gestures and eyes.


And the whole Grimald/ Hanover/ Ducret family...all awful .......!

Note to brides to be everywhere (especially royal brides)

1. Do not have a summer wedding in a place with no airconditioning!
2. Do not have an 1 hr + ceremony in a place with no air conditioning. I think the Royals were melting.
3. Don't have a ceremony that has more singing than a Church service. Wwaaaayyy to much singing.

Other than that, I will say that Charlene looks beautiful. There seems to be lots more detail to the dress than shows up on the screen. The train length is perfect for a Princess. The neckline is lovely and flattering. I also like the side tiara she is wearing in her hair. Well down Charlene! I am actually starting to like her dress better than Catherine's. Nicer figure too.

The flower girls hat and dresses was quite nice as well..

On a different note neither one of them look especially happy. In fact she looks somewhat dazed. I'm rather skeptical about this marriage.

Nadine thank you so much for the link, it's working great.
Love that they are showing amazing pics of the guests and couple.
But what is up with C&A, she looks dazed, not engaged and looking off
to the side not Albert.
Likewise his sisters don't look thrilled either. Caroline looks composed but
Stephanie looks like she's going to cry all the time.
Very odd reactions.
The ceremony itself is lovely.
