I voted for the bridal party of Mary and Frederik, just love those pink dresses.

I also love the red in the Dutch and Belgian bridal parties, but I think the dresses are just so stiff and old fashioned, especially the clothes of the children with the velvet and stuff... just not my cup of tea! :)

I favor and voted for ~> Haakon & Mette-Marit of Norway :D

I voted for Haakon & Mette-Marit's. I loved the simplicity of the dresses, and the wreathes in the girls hair. Plus Marius was adorable!

My vote was for Haakon & Mette-Marit's. The bridal parties for Lietchenstein, Denmark and Spain were nice as well!

my votes CP Fred and CP Mary of Denmark because both have great best party bridal in 2004 but both still as popular CP couples!

Actually I disliked the dresses of Mary's attendents, to modern for a royal wedding. I liked the ones of the children at Letizia's wedding but the 2 older bridemaids looked a bit weird, like a shepardess from a Goya painting. So in the end I voted for the classical look of Maxima's bridesmaids, pages etc.

Lorenzo Caprile made an excellent job with F&L's bridesmaids and pageboys. Those costumes are perfect masterpieces and what I like the most about them is all the historical notes that characterized the whole wedding. Everything was perfectly linked in a Spanish XVII-XVIII century atmosphere, since the music that was played at the service (Häendel, Cabanilles, Arauxo, Bruna, etc.), the own bride's gown, till the costumes of the attendents.
Caprile took his inspiration from the paintings of Goya that are hanged on the walls of the Prado in Madrid. The source of the little children's attire was particularly caught from Francisco de Goya's Infante niño D. Francisco de Paula and The Duke and Duchess of Osuna and their Children (1789):

Juan and Froilán's costume reproduced the masculine noble attire used in the second half of the XVIII century, while the bridesmaids were inspired by the ladies who used to serve the Royal Family at that time.

Besides, the garland hold by the children is an ancient symbol of Joy, Abundance and Happiness, evoking a series old Spanish traditions, as los niños Mayos or Majos and the Cruces de Mayo that are celebrated in this month.

WA and Maxima's IMO

GrandDuchess 09-20-2005 11:36 AM

I can't really choose, it's so hard! But my favourites were the bridal parties of Alois & Sophie of Liechtenstein, Haakon & Mette-Marit of Norway and Fredrik and Mary of Denmark.

I love Letizia and Felipe's Goya-esque bridal party. so spanish. they have the only bridal party whose look reflects their country.

pollyemma 09-20-2005 12:12 PM

I might vote for Fred and Mary.their bridal party is very well dressed. love the different shades of pink. unfortunately the presence amber petty kind of ruins the effect. she's kind of sleazy imho.
