I don't think they are exactly alike, but they are similar enough to lessen the "wow" factor for me, especially since the last wedding was less than a year ago.

I am surprised and disappointed, even though Claire looks beautiful.

Did the Prince and Princess of Ligne attended? Or one of their children, Princess Alix and Prince Henri?

All four of them.

By the way, the Grand Duchess wore Armani, the Hereditary Grand Duchess wore Stéphanie le Grelle, Princess Tessy wore Calvin Klein, Gabriele Lademacher wore Dior and the witnesses wore Tadashi Shoji.

Some links to videos can be found here.

Do you know if Prince Antonio and Princess Christine of Brazil attended? Or any other Orleans-Braganza?

Thank you.

Beatrice is usually the most stylish woman for miles. Very disappointed in her today.

Here you go.

No, haven't see any Bragancas but the photographers only focused on a few guests. It's entirely possible that they were there.

Thanks cepe.
Lady Nicholas was born Paola Doimi de Lupis Frankopan and, as mentioned above, her brother Lawrence was a witness at Guillaume's wedding. Today, Lawrence Frankopan was also a witness for Prince Felix.

Another brother, Dr. Peter Anthony Frankopan, is married to Jessica Mary Sainsbury who is a member of the grocery dynasty. Their twin daughters, Flora Antonia and Katarina Anna, were the two flower girls at Claire and Felix's wedding.

(Note corrections thanks to Syndey!)

She more than likely left it at an altar or Chapel inside in the Basilica consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It's a tradition to do that at Catholic weddings.

Thanks Lindy, but I thought Dom LAURENCE "Larry" de Frankopan was Gui's witness?

I believe that it was another brother Don Lawrence that was the witness for both Guillaume and Felix

I looked at some more pictures. Stephanie's "jacket" is sliding down her left shoulder and the left side of her dress is also lower than the right side. This outfit would be great if it fit. Jacket too big or if not too big should be secured at the shoulder so it doesn't slide. Her hat was rollicking, fun-loving, which I gather is the mood of this gathering, so great.
Everyone seemed to be having fun, so it was a great wedding.

The best dressed was Beatrice Borromeo. I realize that is controversial as she was wearing a pants suit, which ordinarily I don't like a lot, but this particular version was just perfect. She wore a lacy insert in the neckline, more modest than modest, but this lace did not look tacked on, just an underblouse. Wow.

Tessy, as always is understated and just right, a beauty who doesn't even have to try.

Lawrence is a very close good friend of both Guillaume and Felix and was indeed a witness at both of their weddings.

Peter is the father of Flora and Katarina who were bridal children today.

Gotta say, I'm so disappointed with Claire's dress. It looks awful. I'm usually a big fan of Ellie Saab, but this was just not done right.

That being said, her make-up and hair were gorgeous. At least she looked thrilled!

Elie Saab designs the same kind of dresses season after season. They all look like eachother. Stephanie's wasn't the most original of designs either. It could've easily came straight off the runway.

Perhaps so, but Stephanie's was the first ES Royal bridal gown I had ever seen and it was was spectacular, imo.

Rania of Jordan wore Elie Saab for her wedding day. But it was awful.
Elie Saab has a formula that works incredibly well and most women feel and look great in his dresses (which is the most important) but it's hardly innovative designing and like I said, all his dresses are similiar.
