I like her dress.
What an odd couple they were.

What a Fab! couple they were. I just loved Alexandra, she was a great princess and Joachim was so happy and lively then. Shame it all fell apart. But now J's got Marie, and Alex got the hunkalicious Martin. Happy times all round. This wedding is one of my fav's, everything a winter wedding should be. The next royal wedding needs to be a winter one!

Wow, the Danish Royal Family, speaks really good English!
What did cause the marriage to fall apart? ( If this belongs in a different thread, point me that way. )
Loved Margethe's dress at the ceremony. Beautiful, and regal!

I had forgotten that I have seen this dress before. I just didn't know it was Joachim's wife. I didn't like her dress because of where the skirt started, it looked to 80s or early 90s imo. If it wasn't for that it would have been a great wedding dress.

Does anyone have a good photo of Marie Chantal's blue gown/coat at this wedding? I have one from Uppa but would love to see a photo of the ensemble looking straight at it. Thanks for any help.

While looking for something else, I came across this:

Bryllup - Joachim og Alexandra -

It has 8 videos covering the wedding of Joachim & Alexandra from beginning to end, much like the crown princely couple in Sweden. Since I never got to see this, I enjoyed it very much and hope others can do so as well.

I just love the way he looks at her as she walks down the aisle!

Her dress has to be one of my least favorite royal wedding dresses.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Princess Alexandra of Denmark's Gown

Never was a fan of this gown. Too poufy for my taste, and I don't like the pearls on the collar. Also, her hairstyle was awful! However I do like her veil and tiara.

I agree about the hair. I thought perhaps her hairdresser was a Raafarian who piled all the coils on top of her head.
I thought the dress wasnt too bad for a winter wedding on a cold snowy afternoon but didnt like the train.

I always think that her wedding hairstyle is a failed copy of Jackie Kennedy's wedding hairstyle.

She didn't look quite perfect, I would have changed a lot (starting with the godawful dress and the failed hairstyle), but the wedding was amazing. Can't remember having actually watching it at the time (as I was about two in late 1995), but I've seen it since and it was really romantic - one of my favourite royal weddings.

I've always thought Alexandra looked beautiful! Her dress and hair didn't bother me in the least. Honestly, its very mid 90's IMO.

They were one of my favorite royal couples and I was a bit disappointed that it didn't work out. But hey, they have two beautiful kids so I guess it wasn't a total loss.

Thank you for posting these links!

Somehow it seems like this wedding was yesterday - the outdated fashion choices of the guest reveals that 18 years is a long time :)
