I usually agree with you, Moonmaiden, but on this I can't. I thought the Monaco wedding was tacky. It was way over the top and was too theatrical for my personal taste. Just my opinion.

Here is a YouTube clip from Philipe and Mathilde's wedding.
The church flowers, from what I can see, are beautiful. Her bouquet, on the other hand, looks like she picked up a blooming shrub and carried it in.

Mary and Frederik's church flowers were gorgeous, but again, I did not like her bouquet. I have really tried to, but it hasn't grown on me over the years - and I usually like Mary's taste.

I quite agree with you. The flowers in the church were lovely. But, that is the largest bride's bouquet I have ever seen. I think of Mathilde as elegant and sweet. But, the bouquet looked like a whole bush. I wonder what she would say about it now.

I must say I have never paid that much attention to the flowers I always focused on the couple and " the dress" now I want to go back and watch them again to take notice of the flowers

Great balcony but not their wedding. However, the balcony itself is gorgeous and the King's Day flowers are wonderful. Anything more would have ruined the effect.

Here is another angle of the above photo.

And here is the wedding balcony.

Both are gorgeous and it's lovely to see that they don't feel the need to obscure the entire balcony.

The flowers at Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones wedding were beautiful. Her bouquet, the greens interwoven into her tiara, the bridesmaids bouquets and the flowers in their hair--simple, elegant, beautiful

I was wondering the same thing, MissBird. I wonder what Queen Mathilde thinks as she looks at it now.
