Interesting: the president's husband got the Crown Order and not the Order of Orange-Nassau; is that what happened with previous state visits as well that the spouse of the head of state received the crown order?

There we no orders to be seen yesterday; so not sure why this was a white tie event and yesterday a black tie - probably they didn't exchange orders yesterday and thought it would be less obvious?

Edit: Checked previous state visits to republics (nice overview of outgoing state visits at koninklijkhuis):
Portugal: no spouse
Italy: black tie/no orders
France: business/no orders
China: business/no orders
Korea: business/no orders
Poland: black tie/no orders

Commonwealth countries (other than UK): no orders (either black tie or 'lunch')


Finally, the incoming state visit by Argentina was also a white tie event and the president's wife indeed got the Crown Order while the president received the Order of Orange-Nassau.
China's incoming state visit was white tie but no orders were exchanged (so the Dutch king and queen just wore their own orders - while princess Beatrix didn't wear an order).

That state banquet was either a very small affair or they don't want us to know that more people attended.

President Dalia Grybauskaite looks good, as always. I don't know her at all but she always lights up a room. I believe she is rumored to be one of the candidates to succeed Donald Tusk as president of the European Counsel.

In a tweet she called The Netherlands "a true friend, trusted ally and exceptional trade partner" .

Orders were exchanged between the heads of state during all three state visits, though only the sash and star worn during the dinner in Estonia. Each host country decide on the dress code for the state banquet, and it seems like the current Estonian President favours white tie. A nice surprise I would say...
