I thought Mary looked great. To me it seemed like Caroline's dress was a bit too much compared to what everyone else was weraring. I liked the brides dress except for how it was near her shoulders.

It looks to me like the dress was designed as a strapless bridal gown, but the bride requested sleeves because some churches have issues with bare shoulders in church (especially on brides).

Again, just a very elegant couple. He is so handsome and she is just beautiful. I hope their marriage is a long filled with a lot of love and happiness.

I really like the tiara. Its very different from other tiaras that you see (at least to me). I like the top half of the wedding dress, but for some reason I'm not too fond of the lower half. I don't know why & it probably sounds a little strange to say that. Maybe it looks to much like a everyday formal dress & not like a wedding dress. But I do like the splash of green with the sash around her waist.

^the tiara remind me a lot of the Romanov wedding tiara.

The bride looks lovely. The dress reminds me of Monique L'huilier's dresses.

GlitteringTiaras 05-04-2007 08:57 PM

It is a Monique Lhuillier dress.:flowers:

Does anyone know about the groom's sister-in-law, Floria-Franziska? In the photos provided above, she is quite a standout, and I don't mean her looks. it's her dress:ohmy: Slightly revealing for a major social occasion don't you think?

I like Mary's dress better than I like Caroline's. Caroline's has way TOO much going on - see through stripes, layering, uneven lengths, heavy jewellery, but the worst....pairing black heels with a navy dress! Say it isn't so...never in the history of the world has navy matched black. Also, it looks so warm and sunny out. That dress might have been better in fall/winter. The color is so blah for spring. I love her to death, she's so beautiful but that dress doesn't let her shine. The rosette on top makes her look flat chested and the waistline is too high and makes her boyish/pencil shape look squat and dumpy. I could see her in something like what Mary was wearing. She should show off her figure. Nothing looks good if it doesn't fit. Not to rip on Caroline the whole time...I think Anna von Bayern's dress is very nice: simple, elegant, fitting and light looking for the weather. HOWEVER, any woman who would wear a pant-suit (you know which) to any party occassion is out of their minds. They're frightful. And I still haven't wrapped my fashion sense around satin taffeta gowns yet. Too HS prom. And Floria-Franzisca - beautiful girl, but that dress is fit for a stripclub.

Totally agree on Caroline - she does not look good. Dress is too dark for such a beautiful sunny day --- her hair is not styled in any way and obviously dyed an unattractive color. Heavy make-up --- she needs to lighten up ---
I think that Caroline needs to branch out from always wearing Chanel

Prince Philipp and Princess Laetitia stand between the flower children after the wedding.

I love the tiara of Princess Laetitia at the wedding. This tiara is the same of Mafalda of Savoy in 1925.
