THE ROYAL PARADE: Style at The Wedding of Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and the Countess Stephanie de Lannoy

I am an absolute sucker for a royal wedding.
All the pomp and pageantry...and the hats. Oh those hats make my heart skip a beat!

This past weekend HRH Prince Guillaume, the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg (a tiny country sandwiched between Belgium, France and Germany just in case you are wondering),  married the Countess Stephanie de Lannoy, who looked every inch the princess in a gorgeous Elie Saab and wore a tiara created for her family in 1878 by the firm Altenloh de Bruxelles.
(Elie Saab seemed to be the designer of choice for the Luxembourg wedding, it seems like almost every royal lady took the bride's lead and wore at least one Elie Saab confection throughout the weekend festivities)

All the chic royal ladies were out in full 'mad hatter' mode for the religious ceremony that took place on Saturday, October 20, 2012. (Sophie, The Countess of Wessex and Princess Maxima of The Netherlands took the lead that afternoon as expected, these two never disappoint in my eyes when it comes to delightful millinery confections!)

The Royal Highnesses of Style also lit up the skies of Luxembourg the evening before the wedding when they strutted the family jewels out for a stroll at a pre-wedding gala. Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece outshone her royal competition in a stunning gold Elie Saab (my fav of the night!) and while we couldn't source any full images of the red Jesper Høvring gown that Princess Mary of Denmark wore, from what we have seen so far, it doesn't surprise us that she always finds herself on best dressed lists every year!
A stylish feast for the eyes if I may say so myself!

  1. Oh she is a stunning bride! I love her dress and tiara!!


    1. PPK,
      doesn't she look just marvelous!! I adore her dress, very reminiscent of Grace Kelly!

  2. Stunning atire - gold stars for all of the ladies! Of course, the bride looks amazing. I love her gown!

  3. JMW,
    Elie Saab saved the day! I agree that they all looked lovely, such beautiful looks!

  4. The best part is no botox - well apart from Marie Chantal, but the others have lines under their eyes which we so rarely see these days, so refreshing.

  5. What a gorgeous wedding! I always love seeing the hats the guests wear!

  6. Deares Anastasia,

    One little error in listing these glamorous ladies: Princess Máxima of The Netherlands as she is from Argentina and married Crown Prince Willem Alexander of the Kingdom of The Netherlands and thus is not the Crown Princess.
    What a post; lots of photos with great couture.
    Hugs to you,

  7. Just to add my two cents. Great post,love your blog and Maxima IS indeed Crown Princess of the Netherlands because she married the Crown Prince!

  8. Mariette,
    while Princess Maxima is a native of Argentina, she was decreed the Crown Princess of The Netherlands when she married the heir apparent to the Dutch throne, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange on Feb. 2, 2002 (although she does not carry the title of Princess of Orange which is reserved only for the heir apparent to the throne).

  9. I really like the wedding dress!

  10. Thanks for posting this nice and descriptive post. Keep on posting these kinds of informative posts in future also.
