Tell someone it is not grand enough when it is a family heirloom no matter what it fits the grand enough part.

Exactly !
Besides, it would be a good chance to confirm if it really is a Lannoy heirloom (and that I REALLY want to know). Maybe even some more wedding pics of other Lannoy brides will pop up.

Considering the recent death of her mother, Countess Stéphanie might evern decide not to wear a tiara at all (though of course I hope that she does wear a tiara, even if it's only a small one.)

I hope she will wear a simple tiara of Luxembourguese court since she will become the future consort of the grand duchy.

maybe she will wear her mother's wedding tiara, if she used one?

So she chose her family tiara. I think it was lovely and if all the women of her family wore it on their wedding day, it was the right choice.
Of the Lux tiara's my favourite was the bigger floral tiara, so I'm happy she chose is for the gala banquet.
She has a good tiara head

Perfect choices for both occasions. Even though the wedding tiara was not the most beautiful, real nobles/royals always put traditon in first place. Her family has a history and she is proud of it.

The tiara a really pretty piece. Does anyone know how many carats the centre diamond is?
The only problem I had is that she wore it a bit too far back on her head.
I wonder if we will see her wearing the tiara in the coming years to events like state dinners etc.

Great choice! I had stated since the engagement was over that I would love to see Stephanie wearing family jewels, how nice that she chose the family tiara for her wedding! I think it's the typical, delicate diamond tiara and the ideal choice for a young princess. It didn't overwhelm her at all!

I love that she chose the family tiara, a tiara her sisters and cousins have worn before her on their wedding day.

The tiara may not be grand in size but it's a very lovely piece.

Very appropriate to wear her families tiara at her own wedding. She has a lifetime ahead to wear the Luxembourg collection.

This tiara may be small, but it is very beautiful and elegant. I'm very glad that she wore it. Is it known if her mother also wore this one for her wedding? I wish that more pictures of her sibling's marriages would surface.

Im very happy Stephanie chose her family tiara. That's the way it was traditionally. Obviously with the Arrival of commoner princesses the wedding tiaras became the royal family tiaras. But Stephanie having one of her own family, worn by her predecessors, did the right choice choosing it. We will have plenty of opportunities to see her in the luxembourg tiaras as time passes.

I don't know if Stéphanie's mother had wore the tiara, there are no mentioning of it, and as comtesse Alix herself was from a noble family it's very possible that the family has its own tiara for brides to wear.
