Better picture of the train
The train is just hideous. The detailing on the dress is nice, but why take the time to do such detailing and then make a train that completely takes away from the dress? Any designer with any sense would know better than that. Maybe really wanted it that way, but it was awful. You just don't pair too such very detailed things together. The dress was okay and Mabel seemed to wear it well, but the dress and the train together really came off as being a bit too decorated and tacky.

Thanks for the info Tina. I was wondering her name as well. Now, she was absolutely divine in lilac. Loved the hat&#33; :woot:

I was wondering why this topic is in this section instead of in the &#39;Something royal, blue, ...&#39; section. Isn&#39;t that were weddings belong?

It will probably be moved later, but since it&#39;s current news, it&#39;s easier to find if it&#39;s up here :)

If you look beyond all the bows, it is not that ugly, the cut is nice, BUT the bows are really there&#33;
I agree... the dress itself is not that hideous, but the train is. If she lost the train, the dress wouldn&#39;t look half bad..

Is it just me or did Prince El Hassan and Princess Sarvath bring their children with them. Also, is the new Princess Rym Ali visible in the background?

i think the wedding had some fantastic dresses:

to start with mabel's choice: in contrast to everybody else i actually found the dress quite amusing and beautiful. its something different, also the veil, very funny, i think, suited the occasion, which for some reason really didnt become as solemn as other royal weddings.

then: mabel's sister nicoline: very beautiful herself but her outfit was stunning. here in purple, laurentin in green, also very nice, very colourful

I don&#39;t know if the people behind them are their children, but I definitely don&#39;t recognize any of them to be Rym.

queen beatrix had a lovely dress, but the result was slighly unproprtioned: too short arms, the lady looked actually rather dwarfted. anyway: great colour

maximas skirt: read somewhere that the skirt ruined the outfit: true, wasnt the greatest part about her appearance. also: slightly over the knee suits here so much better

very nice: laurentien, great colour, one sees it not often enough

very nice bridesmaids dresses, i think, also by v&r? i thought the colourscheme blue and white and black was very well chosen

mabel and the bows

how can someone not like mabel's dress??

I think Mabel&#39;s dress would have looked much better if the detailing was limited to the bodice, leaving the skirt and train plain. The cut of it suited her well though. I thought Maxima&#39;s jacket was beautiful. :flower:

To be honest with all of you, despite her dress being somewhat unconventional (unlike some of the women who in my opinion need to ditch the mega & very ugly hats...now that is tacky), I think she looks quite beautiful and obviously extremely happy.

I wish them all the best; obviously love does conquer all, and I admire any man who gives up something so big (ala his place in line to the throne) to marry the women he loves&#33; Now that says a lot about a person&#33;

I liked the dress. The detailing using the bows was really different. I agree with the poster who also said that the dress itself really did suit Mabel. It was a different type of gown in its design, but it didn&#39;t upstage Mabel. The only problem that I have with the gown itself is that I would have preferred that the detailing not have become larger as it progressed further down to the skirt. I noticed that the bows surrounding the base of the skirt were larger than the others and I think that had all of the detailing remained small and the same size, it would have been much nicer. Of course as I said before, the train was just a no. Simple would have been much better.
