I read somewhere (in this thread, I think), that since her new husband gave up his distant rights to the throne that she wouldn't get a title, or that she wouldn't get her own title. Maybe I read it wrong.

Well, the Crown Prince married a woman that I'm pretty sure was a commoner, so if he can do it, so can his brothers/cousins.

Thanks for telling us BeatrixFan, maybe the fact she is only 'her highness', is because she isn't part of the royal house?

thought aimee looked beautifull, loved the simplicity of the dress and the tiara, perfect.

Laurentine and Maxima looked pretty (but am not sure about the hat of maxima, a turban in the same material as her coat, a bit oldladyish)

Marilene was wearing a headband with ribbons and pompoms on her head which looked silly, everytime she turned her head they bounced, have never seen it before but mayby it is a classic.

Annette has an inner glow of joy that makes her stand out,
Mabel looked like something out of Dracula due to her lipstick and very white foundation and Anita has again something trimmed with fur at all the seams.

the sermon was about gratitude wich was nice but I did not care for the informal way the minister brought it. The music made up for it, mercifully we did not have a guitar and people in a circle lighting each others candle.

Thank you everybody for the lovely pictures of Floris and Aimee's wedding! :)

Aimee made a lovely bride indeed. I agree with some of the sentiments expressed over Aimee's simple choice of a wedding dress. From the last couple of family occasions we've seen her at, she seems to be very modern and stylish in her choice of clothing. This dress is as classic as wedding dresses come -- a dress that one can look back on and would not be able to say, "She got married in the 80s/90s."

Someone mentioned that there was a cutaway to the dress -- does anyone have a close up of it? I have only seen the formal portraits which are not close enough to see the cutaway or the detailing at the hem of the dress which I glimpsed in one picture with the attendants holding up her train.

Nice of the van Vollenhoven men (and I presume Aimee's family, too) to don bright red ties to match Floris' tie. The men wore different coloured ties at the civil service so I wasn't expecting this symbol of unity today as happened at Pieter-Chritistiaan's civil and religious ceremony.

Little Anna and Isabella are practically professional attendants now! I loved how Anna was waving away and smiling her toothy grin. Isabella seemed less shy this time around than at Pieter-Christiaan and Anita's wedding two months ago.

All of the van Vollenhoven brides wore the Ears of Wheat tiara, mostly with all eight ears.

I think however that the way Aimee wore the veil did the tiara an injustice in that ou couldn't see it as well. I know that it's small (low) tiara, but with the puffiness of the veil all worn so close to the front of her head, it got a bit lost. I think Anita wore it very well so that the prettiness of the tiara could really be seen.

Some fashion notes (you know they were coming, and someone has to start! :p ):

Margriet: Classy as always! Did I expect anything less?!

Aimee's Mom: Also very classy, just like at the civil ceremony.

Marilene: I love Marilene, but what was with her outfit? Particuarly her hat with, was it pom poms hanging off her head?! It was not a flattering look on her.

Annette: So far, the best dressed woman I think. The detailing on the skirt was fun and went nicely with the simplness of the (velvet?) jacket. The jewellery and the accessories (beaded bag, rounded toe pumps and floral arrangement in her hair) was very simple and very well co-ordinated.

Anita: All the different patterns and prints were a bit much for me -- the print on the skirt with the (fur?) jacket with the triple stitch around the front, collar and cuffs. Plus the dark outfit paired with such a light-coloured hat was too stark for me. She looked much better at the civil ceremony.

Beatrix: A stunner in silver! I loved the bias cut of her jacket, too.

Maxima: The suit was okay, but a bit heavy (I know it's cold) and too staid and matronly for vivacious Maxima. And the hat made me think of Davy Crockett, without the beaver tail. It looked like it was going to fall off her head.

Laurentien: The colour of her jacket was nice, and while I'm not wild about the hat, it went nicely with the jacket. It was a surprisingly quiet outfit for Laurentien.

Mabel: Another gripe about hats! Her little black hat perched precariously on top of her head made me think of Maxima's hat almost falling off. Also made me think of a monkey doll I had when I was a child: It wore a similar hat in burgundy off to one ear and it would hobble back and forth blowing a whistle and tapping a tambourine.

Irene: She looked so good and classic at the civil ceremony but the hat lost me at the religious ceremony.

Margarita: I know she's caused the family much trouble in the past, but she looked very pretty and lady like.

Juliana: Never followed her much before, but she is beautiful!

I especially liked the way the priest brought his sermon, he was funny and obviousy knew the couple well, but a the right moments he was serious.

I really loved the way Aimée looked, such a natural beauty, a delicate face and then that beautifull gown, perfect in it's simplicity. Maybe it would have been even greater if the train had been shorter. But she's marrying a prince of course The veil, her hairdo and way of wearing the diadem were great as well. She was just perfect for me.

Her mother was very pretty too, in pink with 3 strings of pearls. You can see where Aimée gets her good taste and elegance.

I also liked the way Margriet, Annette and Carolina were dressed.
