I'm not sure that the Greeks do the "The" business with children of monarchs like the Brits do ... but you're right that she'll be HRH Princess Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark. Women who marry into the GRF take their husband's title (like "Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark," who was the Duke of Edinburgh's mother).

We have to take into consideration the time and the place of the pre wedding cocktail party. The party was sceduled on a late august night in Greece, so heavy make up and complicated hairstyles with tiara would not be a good idea if the weather turned hotter than expected and same I believe goes for very formal dress- sweating in a tuxedo or a haute couture creation is not a nice experience I guess and not exactly classy , so I believe that the GRF decided on this informal dress code to make sure their guests would feel comfortable. Besides, the wedding takes place at a small island and not a grand city so we could say that it would be kind of "out of spirit" to organize a more formal event.

I think a formal event can be done without tiaras, tuxedos and heavy makeup , that's not what I was referring to. But it is rather odd to see some ladies wearing trousers while others are in dresses. But that's obviously the feel they were going for. It does look like it's very hot there, yes.

Prince Haakon was brave wearing a sports coat on such a hot night. The Fashion industry is worth so much because we all like and dislike many styles. This is one of the reasons why the world is such an interesting place. A big thanks to all those who posted the lovely pics.

Every photographer wanted a photo of Victoria and Daniel and they had shouted to Daniel: Kiss her. They didn´t kiss, but were hugging each other, writes the reporter of Expressen.

Finally some potential matchmaking (all in jest of course).

Carl Phillip have you met the lovely Lady Gabriella? Gabriella, have you met the dashing Carl Phillip of Sweden? Now that would be nice.

First of all, the GRF all look very tan, like they spent an day or two out in the sun. Secondly, I'm not a fan of everybody so casually dressed. Well I guess it's the guys more than the girls. Just looks sloppy!
Thirdly, Thanks for the clock link! The wedding will take place at 11 am my time which means I may get some viewing time in on the computer.
And lastly, those photos of the Princesses trying to climb from one boat into a larger one? Take your shoes off! I would've never attempted that in heels! Plus it porbably isn't good for the decks of the boats.

Must be a very hot evening in Greece. Thanks for the world time clock link which means it will be 2am my time. say la vie! Wacthing the you tube video in the background one of the boats was bobbing up a down quite a bit which would have made it difficult for the guests disembarking.

Actually it wasn't very hot like the last couple of weeks and today the temperatures will be normal for this time of season. I think around 33 C.

Personally I like the informal cocktail pre-wedding party, all of them seems to be really casual and relaxed. Love the oufits of the greek and spainish family, they all seems to be the best match to the dress code that night. I had a feeling that some guests showed a little bit overdressed or maybe not match to the dress code, like Maxiama and Mary.

Great pictures so far. What a surprise to see Lady Ella among the young royals. A very nice surprise. I liked it how summery relaxed everyone is dressed (apart from Mary and Maxima). I look very much forward to the wedding pictures today.

the new video from Star channel , providing information about the wedding
http://www.star.gr/index.php?ID=life_style&Rec_ID=57331

I read the article and it mentions a few things for the ceremony. The dress will be DVF , silk and embroidered at hand and she will also have a train. It is heard that she will arrive at the church in a carriage drawn by two white horses. The wedding rings will be by Kessaris and they will have the couple;s initials and the date egraved on and Kessaris will also make the wedding crowns which will be silver ( I guess that rules out the golden crowns traditionally used by the GRF) and the bonbonieres. They will use pink and lilac orchids and roses for decoration. The gift that the couple will give to their best men will be cufflinks with the couples initials on and a turquoise and wooden stone for luck.
