I think Queen Beatrix has the look of a proud mother. But I also think that she is holding back a laugh because she can't stand the sight of that wedding dress!

Hassan Bin Talal and Sarvath El Hassan of Jordan


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 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. [/b][/quote]
Hassan and wife are accompanied by 2 of their daughters and their son.

Very nice wedding pictures.

HM Queen Beatrix I of the Netherlands hat is simply fantastic, very very stylish; very typical in HM.

It&#39;s a shame the wedding didn&#39;t have been attended by other royals, at least from the other Benelux Royal Houses: Belgium and Luxembourg.

One question: Did any member from the Royal House of Bahrain attended the wedding?

I didn&#39;t realize that a hat that looks like a bird&#39;s nest was so fashionable?&#33; Call me crazy, but Queen Beatrix looks ridiculous&#33; As for Laurentian (sp?) there are no words :woot: &#33;

I was sitting here looking at pictures trying to decide what Mabel&#39;s dress reminded me of. A wedding cake. But, I must admit, I liked the bows on the front of the dress, she just got a little carried away with it all. Now the bows on the train, that&#39;s a different story. The important thing is, it&#39;s her wedding and if she has a thing for bows, I say more power to you&#33;

She and J-F looked so happy, and their faces radiated. They really look like a couple in love. Congrats to them&#33; I was shockingly suprised to see Prince Bernhard at the wedding. He must be feeling better.

the three best-dressed ladies, i think

What about fashion commentary for the other guests? There has been a lot of talk about Mabel&#39;s wedding dress but what about the fashions worn by the guests?

For all those who have said that Mabel&#39;s sister Nicoline looked lovely, I totally agree. The colour and cut of the dress was lovely. I especially thought that the colour was not only young and spring-like, but very fitting with Nicoline&#39;s fair skin and light blonde hair. I didn&#39;t even mind the oversized hat -- it didn&#39;t overwhelm her face as much as large hats can on some people.

I really liked Maxima&#39;s jacket. The cut was gorgeous and simple, with nice detailing around the edge. I wish she had been more colourful, however. Maybe that jacket in a soft pink or light blue?

I think Laurentien looks pretty great for someone who gave birth less than a month ago. Her colour choice was nice, fresh and spring-like (I am all about spring colours&#33; :P ) But I abhorred the cut of the sleeves on her jacet. The fringe around the eding of the jacket and sleeves was nice, but the flared/cut out sleeves ruined an otherwise nice look.

A bit indifferent at the moment to what Marilene wore. The steel gray colour I am not such a fan of, but the nearly fuschia hat might&#39;ve saved the outfit for me.

Absolutely loved Annette&#39;s very detailed gold and copper-coloured jacket. It really dressed up her plain black dress. I hope I look as radiant and beaming as this when I&#39;m 7-8 months pregnant&#33;

Beatrix&#39;s jacket was a very different look for her, but I did like it. Adored the colour. Even the hat I liked; I thought it was a nice, whimsical touch.

I also liked Mabel&#39;s mother&#39;s outfit, too. Of course the colour&#33; But the high upturned collar and two-toned detailing on the flipped, over sized cuffs were added touches.

Princess Irene&#39;s purple metallic jacket was nice and the floral skirt feminne.

Didn&#39;t care so much for the long, long, to the ground jacket worn by Princess Christina, but I adored the colour.

Princess Margriet always looks so elegant and lady like, it&#39;s hard to come up with a complaint about her.

I liked the bright colour of Maria Caroline&#39;s suit, as well. And the cut was simple and elegant, who could go wrong?

I didn&#39;t like so much Rosario Nadals&#39; long jarcket with the lower-waisted tie. The jacket and tie elongated her frame but the jacket seemed too big that it made her seem a bit frumpy -- which she certainly isn&#39;t from other pictures I&#39;ve seen of her.

... Any other fashion critics out there?

I want to know how the guests in the back of the church were able to see over all of those huge hats&#33; I&#39;m not a big fan of hats, but I really liked Maxima&#39;s. I just feel sorry for the poor person stuck sitting behind her.

They probably wanted to knock those ugly hats of their heads or they may have been thinking they should have stayed at home to watch the ceremony on T.V. instead.

I loved Nicoline&#39;s dress. She looked divine. The colour suited her very well. I noticed that most of the women in attendance today wore very large hats. I usually don&#39;t like them too large, but for some reason the majority of them were just outstanding today.

I was surprised as well that Maxima didn&#39;t wear more colour. She is really well known for her great colour choices. However, she certainly added some great flair to black and white. I loved her hat and jacket.

I have never seen Laurentien wear so much colour and such pattern. Perhaps she had done so before, but I must have missed it. Her colour choices were great. I loved the print and the hat, but I have to agree that I could have done without the sleeves. But when putting it all together, she looked wonderful.

I didn&#39;t get a very good glimpse of what Marilene wore. The colour was very dark, so I would have needed to see a very good closeup. I did get a clear picture of her hat, which I liked.

Her jacket was gorgeous. I loved the colours and the detailing. I was expecting a more extravagant hat, for some reason. However, when considering the detailing of the jacket, she really didn&#39;t need it. I agree that she looked absolutely stunning.

Her Majesty really does hats very well, IMO. She hardly ever lets us down, unless the hat is just plain ugly. Today, she looked wonderful and I loved her hat most.

I agree. Mabel&#39;s mother looked wonderful. She looked every bit the mother of the bride. The colour was definitely the highlight. Not a colour worn quite often, but a great choice for her.

All of the Prince&#39;s aunts wore wonderful colour. These ladies are definitely not afraid to go against the norm. I really liked Princess Margriet&#39;s stripes. Very whimsical of her. I didn&#39;t particularly care for Princess Christina&#39;s length. It was just a bit too long. Princess Irene rarely disappoints and didn&#39;t today.

Quote:

With a shade of red like that, she definitely made the right decision in choosing such simple cut. The colour was definitely one of the standouts of the day.

Rosario&#39;s clothing is usually much more tailored and fitted. I don&#39;t know why the looseness today. However, she did look well, but her departure from her usual choice of attire was a bit strange.

Actually style is subjective as is beauty and most things in the world. Helleniki has an opinion that differs from yours. Have your opinion and state reasons why you may dislike something, but don&#39;t ridicule someone elses&#39;s opinion. Such attacks will not get a favorable response.

some opinions of the dutch wedding...


the best

maxima&#39;s hat: really nice hat&#33;&#33; what a good option&#33; she had also combined it really well with that black simple skirt.

sonja&#39;s dress: i loved her style today. really elegant and nice in that light blue outfit.

the worst

the wedding gown: without comments&#33;&#33; that bows were horrible...

rosario nadal&#39;s outfit: the only thing i like of it was the hat...

I am sure the information about the title will be found with RVD announcements. It also was most certainly discussed in the media. I&#39;ve clipped several articles that refer to the new titles of the couple ... Mabel is indeed a princess by title.
