Elena & Jaime

USCtrojan 11-07-2003 10:40 PM

This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. So regal and elegant. Elena just shinned. She was such a wonderful bride. Stunning. I don't know of any bride who can really surpass her for a recent wedding or future...

The only brides that hold a candle the the Duchess of Lugo are:

Infanta Cristina
Princess Maxima
Princess Mathildhe
Princess Sofia
and a few others.

I have yet to see (I dont think so) wether or not Mary (maybe) or Litizia :( will make it up there on my list..... LOL!

Thanks for the pics Elsa! I wonder why Elena didn't wear a mantilla like Cristina and Letizia did.

A mantilla? I thought a mantilla was the type of hat like Queen Sophia wore at her son's wedding, and recently at the Pope's funeral?:confused:

(No offence, marezdote!)

I guess you are referring to the peineta. At the Pope's funeral, Queen Sofia wore a mantilla (i.e. a little mantle) with a peineta (that high thing that is on top of the head).

Elena used a more conventional veil (covering the face of the bride), while Cristina chose to be a bit more "modern", letting her face visible. I also remember that Jaime Penafiel (yeah, this guy is tiring...) criticised Cristina's gown, for showing her shoulders... But I particularly liked much more Cristina's gown and mantilla ;)

The day before the wedding
The day before the wedding there was at “Real Maestranza de Sevilla” an Equestrian Show under the title “How does Spanish Horses Dance”, in homage to Elena’s biggest love to this art. Everyone, King included, paid to assist the show and the money was given to two charity institutions “Las Hermanitas de los Pobres” and “Las Hermanitas de la Cruz”.
