I pity the poor person sitting behind Laurentien; it must not have been easy to see round that hat.

I guess the main thing is that everyone is happy but a few superficial remarks:

The patterned material of the dress of the bride, could she not wear a single coulour, simple is best, the colour of her stockings is really........ and the colour of her shoes (are they golden!!)

Marilene looked beautifull, (except for the hat)

Annette is too broad around the beam to wear a white skirt (she does have a lovely face).

Laurentine looked again like something out of holiday on ice and she was not dressed as the princess.

Lets see what the will wear on saterday :)

Beatrix, Margriet and Aimee was the most elegant IMO, Princess Anette has such a natural beauty but her skirt and boots combo was not the best. Marilene need to eat something, she looks extremely skinny. I dont know what Laurentien was thinking, clown pants and tropicana hat in screaming colours for a wedding...

I wonder what we will see on saturday

Royal images have their photos up, I guess it's taking Albert Nirboer a while to set up his photos.http://www.royalimages.nl/theme/theme.asp?themeid=554

Aimee was definitely the best dressed there. I think she is the most stylish of the Dutch royals (except for Maxima, whom I love - though Maxima has worn some pretty bad outfits too now that I think about it). But personally I don't like black or white (or black and white) for a wedding, I think colors are more cheerful.

Speaking of black and white: is it in fashion right now? I'm asking because 3 of the women are wearing it: Aimee, Annette and Margriet.

Liked Beatrix's outfit, esp the color.

Like Margriet's outfit, but not the pompom in her hair.

I agree with a previous poster who said Annette should have worn the boots or the skirt, but not both. I like the skirt, but it's so soft and floaty I don't like it with the boots (at all) or even the heavy black jacket.

Laurentien: the worst outfit she's ever worn (and she's worn some pretty awful outfits). Possibly the worst outfit I've seen anyone wear.

At what point should the Queen or SOMEONE get involved with Lairentien's fashion decisions? If she were my daughter-in-law wearing that out in public when representing my family, I'd be a little mad. And the fact that Laurentien's fashion choices have a tendency to be awful all the time, I think it's time for someone to take over.

Can someone fill me in on details? What is the building the Civil Ceremony was held in? I noticed Anita had rings on both fingers -- are rings exchanged at the Civil Ceremony? I thought that was at the religious ceremony? Is there typically a reception after the Civil Ceremony and is it usually held a couple of days before the religious ceremony? How many brothers does the groom have and what are their names and their wives names? What about the bride's family? Siblings? Where are they from? Thanks to any who can help!

Did the Dutch RF wake up and think it was the 70's. What happened to the fashion? Anita seems like a sweet girl but her outfit is gross, the shoes too. I believe she was going for the Jackie O look and failed miserably. I do wish them the best. Is it protocol for CP Wilhem & Maxima not to attend the civil ceremony? It would have been nice to have them there but I think Maxima would have outshined all of the women there with her sense of style.

Also, thanks for all the great photos! Anita sure has a pretty face, even if the dress leaves something to be desired..... How old is she/is he?

I liked Anita's outfit. She's very pretty and I'm excited to see her dress for the religious ceremony. Laurentien's outfit was AWFUL! Margriet, Beatrix, and Aimee all looked quite good. Anita and Pieter-Christian looked so happy! Congrats to them!

That is just too sweet.

Thanks to everyone who has posted pictures of today!

I am in agreement about the outfits. I am not a fan of Anita's outfit. It wasn't horrible, but just a little too loud for my liking. Especially for a wedding.

Why are all these women wearing black? I thought it was considered bad ettiquete to attend a wedding in black, just as you shouldn't show up for a funeral in red or yellow. I noticed Margriet, Aimee, Annette and a few other women who I can't identify in black. I loved both Margriet and Aimee's outfits, I just don't think they were well suited for the occasion.

I thought that Annette's top was lovely - and her hat was my favorite out of them all - but the skirt and the boots were just awful!

Laurentien..... It seems as if her fashion sense has gone downhill these past few years and has progressively gotten worse. I feel sorry for whoever what stuck sitting behind her. That hat was huge!

I love Marliene, but I really despise her flying saucer hat. That thing could land planes! Her outfit was not that bad though.
