I believe Anna Astrid of Belgium is a bridesmaid at this wedding as she was last week for the bride’s sister.

Even from the guest list you can tell that Marie Astrid is much closer to the Luxemburg circles. There were like 5 people from Liechtenstein family, in total. Not all the Hans Adam childen were there and no grandchildren. Alois looked so bored in every pics🤣

Beautiful church, beautiful wedding and guests except Marie Astrid of Belgium, the brides aunt, wearing the worst dress ever. By contrast, mother of the bride wins the prize with her lovely appearance. I can’t get over the bridal gown and how unflattering it was. First of all, it didn’t fit, it was too long and not fitted around the waist. Then, the very wide v neck on such a bony chest couldn’t be less appealing. She seemed to be just swimming in the dress and literally dragging the too long and obviously heavy train behind her. Her tiara and earrings helped.
Who was one of the adult bridesmaids in a gorgeous,gold mini pleated v neck dress with black shoes and top knot?

It is HR and IH Archiduchess of Habsbourg , born Princess Marie Astrid of Luxembourg. Our Princess Astrid missed the 2 Weddings because she broke a Vertebra .

With Princess Irene of Holland's daughter, with Lady Gabriella Windsor and with these two Liechtenstein princesses, I see tall, junior princesses, in their thirties or even their late thirties, marrying nonentities where the groom has either a good job or has some inherited corporate money. So, I don't see any fairty tale at all. I see sadness and I hope the people are as happpy as they look in the wedding photographs.

Perhaps it is because she was raised in Belgium, which borders on Luxembourg and is further from Liechtenstein?

I wonder how she will be styled after marriage.

I suppose that it helps that the Luxembourg cousins are more or less her own age while most of the Liechtensteins are significantly older, which can make a difference when growing up. Pss Norberta and her daughter were also there so that makes at least 7. Nice that the Fürst made the effort, so shortly after his wife's death.

The Grand Duchess missing two weddings in a row perhaps also makes a statement, though there may be a perfectly good explanation for it of course. A surprise not to see Guillaume and Sybilla, as they seem to enjoy attending family/royal events.

Why do you see sadness? Curious...?

Who doesn't want to marry a well-off person, tho? This people attend private schools, private universities and the same exclusive circles. So they will end up with people from that environment.
Actually Astrid husband was a surprise for me, to be honest. Most of this people still marry between aristocrats.

I actually found M-A's gown very regal ...but the bad fit above the waist ruined it. I think small breasted women should avoid decolletage and v-necks in general.

The train of her gown was too heavy and a bit over the top, but I think the Kinsky Tiara is gorgeous. I love it.

Like you're assuming marrying people with good financial background means they married for the money and there must be no true love and full of sadness.

I hope it's my misinterpretation.

And then her Liechtenstein Grandparents died when she and her siblings were quiet young. And with her Luxembourg grandparents there always quiet big Family gatherings in Summer in their french holiday home.

In 2015, the royal court explained that "the Grand Duchess suffers from an acute fear of flying, also known as aviophobia, which she has been unable to overcome."

Going off to Austria or Italy for a weekend would make for a long drive or train ride. That said, I don't understand how she travels the long distance to Cabasson or Biarritz.

Thanks for that! I had forgotten all about it.

I suppose the south of France can be reached rather easily [Edit: from Luxembourg] by car. Biarrtiz is an 11 hour drive. Vienna is a 10 hour one.

Dresscode for the Wedding :
Ladies long Dresses and no Hat.
For Men : Only the Groom and the Bride's Father wore a "jaquette". I think furst Hans Adam of Liechtenstein who is in mourning prefered not to wear this but a black Suit and black tie .
Therefore Men has to wear "tenue de ville"
Sorry for the french words !

This wedding to me was unusual.

It is nice and warm in Italy and the ladies looked more dressed for a summer party than a royal wedding.

The church is beautiful and lovely as it is near the sea.

I felt that last month's wedding was more regal and formal than this one.
