The bride, Caroline and Mary looks amazing! Especially love their jewels (although I am not too fond of the brides tiara).

Whenever she attends functions such as this and looks the way she does, she simply validates the fact that she is Grace Kelly's daughter.

She may not be blonde and patrician like her legendary mom, but the bearing and poise and the attitude are unmistakably Grace.:)

O.K. Questions:

who is the new Princess von Hesse?
who are her parents?
where is she from?
how do Philipp and Laetitia have meet?
how long before wedding they were together?

Great to see such loving looks between her and Frederik! :)

I totally agree with you. The dress is not my favourite.
Frederik and Mary are a wonderful couple. It is always nice to see them so much in love.

Thank you so much for all those wonderful pictures! Not much of a fan for Caroline's dress though. Mary and Federik looks so great together! Love her dress and simplicity!

I hate Carolines dress. It is really ugly. Its just a mess in my opinion. Her hairstyle is also very ageing. I do like the way Mary looks though. The outfit and look are very nice.

I love the bride's wedding gown! Beautiful lace. Lovely fit. Pretty sash emphasizing her waist and providing a little color. Very nice tiara too!

I love the style of Mary's dress. Her figure looks amazing in it. I wish it wasn't quite so soft a color though (beige? pink? mauve?). I think she looks better, given her coloring, in at least slightly stronger colors than this dress. She looks lovely as always, though. And I think it's adorable that after all these years she and Fred still hold hands.

Really dislike Caroline's dress: way too fussy. And her hair is too short and casually styled I think. Great jewels, and she is undoutedly a beautiful woman. Just don't like this oufit and look for her.

I love Alexandra's dress (color, style, fit). But I think it's a little low cut for a church; maybe a shawl would have helped appease my sense of modesty :)

She can't always wear the same ones at every wedding. I like her dress. Il's a change

I liked Laetitia's bridal gown and the tiara. I think I liked it because it was unusual. The green sash was unique.:)

lise 06-13-2006 03:02 AM

I like Laetitia's gown the green sash is something different.

P.S. Welcome lufer

Thanks for all the nice pics! All ladies looked fantastic, but in my eyes the bride looked best and that's the way it should be on her wedding day ;)
It seems to have been a fairytale wedding as to the wonderful setting...:)

She's wearing the Hesse's ears of wheat tiara. Philipp's mother, Tatiana, also wore it to her wedding.

Picture 1 and 2 are thr grooms older brother Hereditary Prince Heinrich Donatus and his wife Floria, née Countess of Faber-Castell who married in 2003, Picture 7 is Princess Anna of Bavaria, née Princess zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

qui mal y pense 06-13-2006 01:27 PM

I love the fact that Laetitia wore the ears of wheat tiara. It is so nice when jewels like that stay in a family and all the brides have a chance to wear it. Her gown was also very beautiful and elegant. I don't think Caroline looked her best. The gown looked expensive and couture but not very flattering.

Does anyone have a photo of Prince Gustav of SWBerleburg at this wedding?
