My vote goes to Haakon and Mette-Marit. I didn't like the outfits for Felipe and Letizia's bridal party. I think the mantillas and the Goya influence did not look well on the attendants!

I can't decide -- but I do note the colors from Pavlos and MC's wedding are Greek!

I voted for Felipe and Letizia's bridal part as well. I loved that they honoured their country's history and culture in their choice of attire for their bridal party. They are a couple making history as the future King and Queen of Spain while simultaneously honouring their country's history.

I think that's very touching and sentimental of them.

I voted for Felipe and Letizia's party too! I just thought the attire was very beautiful. I liked Mary and Frederik's party as well, but as Marengo pointed out, it was just a little too 'modern'.

Felipe and Letizia's whole wedding was planned thinking about Spain. The Spaniards needed this tribute after those horrid March-11th attacks.

Letizia's dress, the flowers in her bouquet, the songs played at the ceremony, the ceremony itself - which was dedicated to the people who died at the attacks.

Everything about it had a Spanish flair.

I think this is what makes this couple my favourite and such a standout. They are clearly a couple devoted to their role as the future monarchs of Spain as well as to each other.

Everything about the wedding paid hommage to Spain, from superficial, surface things down to the tiniest of details that might otherwise be overlooked.

While other couples chose things for their aesthetic or coordinating qualities, this couple chose things for its history and how it could honour the country they are to serve and to rule one day.

Nobody can doubt Felipe and Letizia's devotion to Spain, all of it, past, present and future.

I personally liked the way the young attendants (not Mary's sisters and Amber Petty as I thought their outfits terrible and jarring to the eyes) in Frederik and Mary's wedding party were dressed. Nikokai and Richard von Pfeil in little navy suits and the little girls in those pink dresses were adorable. They are the kind of outfits I could see myself choosing for my own wedding.

But as this poll is about the Best Crown Princely bridal party and not about my personal taste, I would go with Felipe and Letizia's bridal attendants. I love the fact that their wedding was about the two of them uniting before God but also about their country. I appreciated that they picked traditional, Spanish-influenced attire for their attendants whatever their personal tastes or preferences may have been otherwise (although I suspect that this is also their taste).

The outfits were very unique -- I especially loved the "fishnet" hair holder for the older attendants. The little girl is adorable in her "apron" and the detailing on the hem of her dress is beautiful. I loved the long morning suit-like jackets of Froilan and Juanito, too. (I wonder how they felt about the leggings however!)

Hi :).





I voted for Felipe and Letizia’s for its meaning. The goyesc outfits were very well chosen and the colors didn't outstand and that flower detail the pages and bridesmaids entered the church with made me realize that this wedding was planned to the most small detail.



But I must confess that I am sorry I can only vote for one:( . My second best are Haakon and Mette-Marit's bridal party. In a fairy-tale there must be fairies and their bridesmaids looked evenly.


Congratulations to the ones that planned and made this thread. You are GREAT:) !!!

Regards,
mtbcm

I voted for W-A and Maxima because the red color was very rich and beautiful. It looked very nice in contrast with Maxima's dress - very dramatic.

I also liked Felipe and Letizia's because they were old-fashioned and I don't think anyone expected that cheery yellow color. It was perfect for a spring wedding.

Without being bias,I voted for Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia's bridal party attire..The color of the bridal party is just wonderful and classical, fit for a royal wedding :) ..I am also attracted to golden yellow, its too classy and sophisticated and the mood of this color is very jolly..I also like the design of the bridal entourage, I think its patterned from the 17th century Spanish dress..

My votes are:-
1. Felipe & Letizia - the bright yellow colour and the culture reference. And the page boys looked so cute and dashing in their outfits!
2. W-A & M - the rich colur and simple style, it both matched and compliment the bride's outfit
3. Fred & Mary - modern and simple.
