I think Letizia looks fantastic and I was watching clips of the wedding arrival today on TVE and the brides dress flows very nicely but I don't like the way she is wearing the mantilla on her head. I don't find it flattering.

I think the bride looks absolutely lovely. I really like her wedding dress and veil.

Letizia's hair and make up looked nice. I also liked that her fan matched her outfit, but I didn't like the outfit especially those silver buckled shoes..

Great pictures! I love how Felipe's tie was red to match with Letizia's skirt. She looked fabulous by the way. I agree with Alisa though, not too crazy about the shoes.

Queen Sofia looks absolutely lovely.

I like the bride's twenties style kind dress and veil. But is she really a model???

Yes, she really is a model.

I like the Infantas outfits,I think the color green looks fantastic on infanta Cristina.However it seems both ladies are dressed for two different events. Infanta Cristina looks like she is dressed for the evening and Infanta Elena looks like she is dressed for a morning or day event. Strange.

The bride have a very original way to put the tiara and the veil...............

love the dress very chic but the veil dosen't do her face justice( just call me the veil critic) she has a pleasant face too and they look like a nice match.

WOW! Both Cristina and Letizia look fabulous, very chic and lovely. (Not to slam Elena, I just prefer the styles that Cristina and Letizia are wearing.) Very, very excellent set of pictures.

isabella_ 09-20-2004 12:05 PM

Thanks so much for all that great pictures! ;)

I think Cristina was absolutely wonderful, another example of how she has improved her style.

And Letizia... she was really beautiful, but her look wasn't the suitable one...
I don't know, it's just my opinion. :confused:

elenaris 09-20-2004 12:16 PM

Great Pics!!!! Muchas gracias!
The bride is really beautiful... I really love her middle-Age fashioned dress. It looks like Queen Astrid of Belgium's or Queen Ingrid of Denmark's wedding dresses in the 20's/30's...and the veil is definitely gorgeous ( like in the 20's).
Letizia is really thin- I prefer Cristinna's dress. She and Inaki seem so much in love!!!!

Anna_R 09-20-2004 12:30 PM

I loved Cristina's and Letizia's outfits, but I fell in love immediately to Cristina's sandals.....they are different and gorgeous. Both couples seem very much in love. I'm really not fond of the apathy of the Dukes de Lugo....they're too serious, they seem to never relax.....


elenaris 09-20-2004 12:50 PM

I think Elena and Jaime are having a bad time.... rumours say there do not get along anymore... even the magazine " hola" once made its cover with a title: "the dukes of lugo go together to a wedding celebration", I think this was in May.
It is said by some Spanish Press that Jaime, consequently to the health problems he had to face, is every day more colerous and difficult to live with....

Here is the "Hola I mentioned.
