Royal Wedding Guests

Royal Wedding Guests 1

There were many more guests who attended the wedding of Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Christopher O’Neill this afternoon in Stockholm, Sweden.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: The princess was my favourite of the guests, looking divine wearing a soft pastel-blue Emilio Pucci tiered lace gown with a delicate cape. The look was styled with a matching clutch and amethyst tiara.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: The princess, who attended the ceremony without her husband Prince Albert, wore another Akris gown during this royal celebration. On this occasion she wore a strapless ruched mocha coloured peplum gown which she styled with a chiffon shawl draped over her shoulder while carrying a crocodile clutch in the same mocha hue.

Royal Wedding Guests 2

Princess Mary of Denmark: The princess opted for a vibrant hue wearing a bright pink lace gown with a matching chiffon cape featuring a satin trim. A blue-and-yellow sash, royal order family brooch, silver clutch and a stunning diamond tiara completed the look.

Princess Tatiana of Greece: The princess selected a gown in the same pastel-blue hue as Mette-Marit, however, Tatiana’s gown was strapless with a ruched bodice and flowing skirt and train. She of course added some sparkle to her look with drop diamond earrings, and a stunning tiara, while a navy sash and striped clutch provided the finishing touches.

Royal Wedding Guests 3

Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece: We all know that arriving to a wedding wearing white is a no-no, however, Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece looks divine in her simple white Valentino Couture gown with an embellished neckline and waist, which was styled with a tiara, navy blue sash and silver clutch.

Crown Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg: With a shimmering silver sparkle glimmer off Crown Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg’s gown, I’m not a fan of her gold jewels.

Royal Wedding Guests 5

Princess Marie of Denmark: My second favourite from the guest list was Princess Marie of Denmark in her pretty pink gown. The lightly embellished gown with a nipped in waist was styled with a blue sash, matching pink clutch and, of course, a tiara.

Sofia Hellqvist: This lady caught my eye. Firstly because I thought she selected a white gown – it is in fact pale-lavender. Secondly because I loved the simplicity of her look, which she styled with a crystal clutch and gold-leaf earrings. Had she opted for silver earrings, this would’ve been high on my list of favourites.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex: The Brits were represented at the event by Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Sophie decorated her pale pink gown and matching clutch bag with a blue-and-red Royal Victorian Order sash.

Queen Silvia of Sweden: The Queen, aka the mother-of-the-bride, wore a jade-coloured silk organza gown with embroidered silk lace and Swarovski crystals. She styled it with Queen Sofia’s tiara, plus she wore the Order of the Seraphim on a ribbon with a brilliant grand star.

Royal Wedding Guests 5

Princess Martha Louise of Norway: The princess also wore an Emilio Pucci gown. When we think of Pucci, we think of ultra mini, uber sexy dresses worn by the likes of Kylie Minogue and Ciara, however, Peter Dundas proves he can make a gown fit for a princess by dressing two royals for this grand occasion.

Princess Anna of Bavaria: Opting for a more vibrant purple hue, the princess subtle chiffon gown was styled with silver accessories.

    Once again Charlene is selling it to me! She is so unique in her dressing compared to all these others ladies! She is deffs the best one on this page.That color is lovely on her!

  2. Maria S. June 8, 2013 at 18:43 #

    Hm… I think Charlene has lost her vibe. Both looks were kind of dissapointing. On the other hand, Tatiana seems to be the one who found it. She looks stunning!

  3. kane June 8, 2013 at 18:44 #

    I like all of them, no disasters here obviously, but I’m also not really wowed by any of them. I think I’d go with Tatiana, Sofia and MM as my favourites. Still unsure what to make of my royal fashion crush from Denmark. I love cape-y things, but maybe I’ll find it easier to get on board when she loses it for the later festivities (if she does)?

    • kane June 8, 2013 at 18:47 #

      Oh forgot Charlene. I know a lot of people didn’t like the vested one from yesterday. I think in close ups the collar worked really (really) well, but this isn’t doing anything for me. There isn’t even a tiara that would make me forget the sadness of that colour.

  4. dressaddict June 8, 2013 at 18:45 #

    Sofia Hellqvist is Prince Carl Philip’s girlfriend. The dress reminded me of Pipa’s bridesmaid dress at the Royal Wedding, don’t you think?

    • Catherine Kallon June 8, 2013 at 18:46 #

      yes you are right….that could be another reason it caught my eye

      • Kat June 8, 2013 at 19:10 #

        Just wanted to point out that the dress isn’t white, but in fact light lavender :) And I noticed the similarities with that other dress too.

    • Yeliz June 8, 2013 at 18:52 #

      It reminded me of Pipa’s dress too.

    • Miriam June 8, 2013 at 19:08 #

      Actually, Sofia’s dress is lilac, you can see it here

      • Catherine Kallon June 8, 2013 at 19:49 #

        thanks

  5. dressaddict June 8, 2013 at 18:46 #

    Mette Marit and Mary were my favourite. They were so beautiful.

  6. dolly June 8, 2013 at 18:49 #

    Fairly sure Sofia’s dress is lavender coloured not white

    • Arina June 8, 2013 at 19:07 #

      I agree. I thought it was white at first, too. But on closer inspection and different lighting, it’s definitely a very pale lavender. More obvious on tv. :)

  7. Yeliz June 8, 2013 at 18:52 #

    I love Mette-Marit and Mary’s looks equally. Both looked absolutely stunning an beautiful. Marie is my runner-up.

  8. CreoleLady June 8, 2013 at 18:54 #

    The two women in white are on my WDOTY contender list. Tacky, tacky, tacky wearing white to this wedding.

    On the upside, although I’m undecided about the mocha, I do like how the shawl and neckline frame Princess Charlene’s décolletage and face beautifully. My faves are the mother of the bride and Princess Mette-Marit.

    • elissa June 8, 2013 at 19:15 #

      Sofia’s dress is indeed a light lavender color, not white. However, Marie Chantal’s is white, which is sad because otherwise, her dress is lovely.

      • CreoleLady June 8, 2013 at 19:41 #

        You know, I wondered about that, it looked like a pale lavender on my screen. But since FC said it was white, I thought perhaps there was an issue with my smart phone’s resolution. If it is lavender, Sofia is certainly off my tacky list, thanks!

  9. molly June 8, 2013 at 19:07 #

    Sofias dress is lavender, not white.
    I think Sophie is wearing Bruce Oldfield, it looks remarkably similar to other gowns she has worn by him.
    Mette-Marit is my favorite here.

  10. Kyriaki - Cyprus June 8, 2013 at 19:08 #

    Princess Marie of Denmark is my favourite. Love the dress, the colour everything!

  11. annel June 8, 2013 at 19:10 #

    My favourites are Marie-Chantal and Mary of Denmark. Both very elegant and regal.

  12. mrs. a June 8, 2013 at 19:23 #

    I thought I saw lavender too and not white. Had me squinting and turning my phone screen upside down to be sure.

    Princess marie’s dress looks like the bride’s dress and once again, I am so underwhelmed by the wedding gown.

  13. Nat39 June 8, 2013 at 19:37 #

    Charlene would’ve been my fave again (I loved her vested look, so chic and grand) if the colour had been more inspiring.
    Mette-Marit’s look is lovely but once again I thought I was looking at a woman in her 50-60s, not late 30s.

    • Nat39 June 9, 2013 at 20:29 #

      Decided Charlene is my fave regardless, she shows some style.

  14. Dhppy June 8, 2013 at 19:43 #

    Prince Charlene of Monaco was my favorite. I like the modern look. I just wish it were a different color, but still… it’s very pretty and different.

    • Dhppy June 8, 2013 at 19:46 #

      … also, I’m far too jealous of Sofia Hellqvist to judge her honestly. Her beau, Prince Carl Philip is quite the royal hottie.

      • TeaAtTwo June 8, 2013 at 20:16 #

        I just googled him, he is scrumptious. He and prince Haakon and Prince Harry are my favourites.

        • Dhppy June 8, 2013 at 20:46 #

          Oh, I know. But since Haakon is married, I had to take him off my Royal Hottie list.

      • ydavis June 10, 2013 at 01:18 #

        @ Dhppy. According to sources, SofiaH was a child p0rn and bondage “model”, a men’s magazine “model”, and was a reality tv star who kissed p0rn star JennaJ on screen bring more attention to herself. Google images of her – but beware, NSFW.

        Considering that, you probably wouldn’t want the kind of man who thinks the taxpayers of Sweden should have no problem with paying her to represent them on the global stage if/when they marry.

  15. Abril June 8, 2013 at 19:45 #

    My favorite were Mette-Marit, what an amazing dress,something out of a fairy tale. Also Marie-Chantal,her dress was stunning! wearing white to a wedding? rules are there to be broken!! She looked perfection on both days (night before and wedding day).

    • Abril June 8, 2013 at 19:50 #

      I am surprised Charlene didn’t wear a tiara. Protocol called for long dresses and tiaras from the female member of royal houses attending and she totally disregarded it; not great when she is representing Prince Albert of Monaco…..tut tut tut

  16. Christine June 8, 2013 at 19:48 #

    I like Princess Anna of Bavaria dress. The purple is beautiful.

  17. TeaAtTwo June 8, 2013 at 20:18 #

    These royal events have been better than most of this year’s Cannes.

  18. Stel June 8, 2013 at 21:15 #

    Katherine your favourite is also my fav!! The princess of Denmark was absolutely fabulous! But the royalties of Greece don’t exist anymore, so please don’t call them prince and princess.. thnx!

  19. Jolene June 8, 2013 at 22:21 #

    Very boring all of them

  20. MaddyEliza June 8, 2013 at 23:15 #

    Mette-Marit and Marie are my favourites!! Elegant and beautiful!! They all look lovely though (with the exception of Charlene and Sofia Hellqvist, unfortunately). :) I just love royal events!! :D

  21. Pam June 8, 2013 at 23:38 #

    Wow, they are really dressing to the nines for this wedding. Can someone explain the sashes and pins to me? Why some royals have them and others do not? Do the colors have meaning? Do they bring the sashes with them, or are they handed out by the host royals?

  22. US June 8, 2013 at 23:47 #

    Um… did Charlene NOT get the memo??? She forgot any semblance of jewelry or royal regalia. And is it me… or is she trying WAY too hard to look like Charlize Theron ?

    • Abril June 9, 2013 at 10:20 #

      I could be wrong but I believe Charlene has not yet given any Monegasque Orders or Honours yet hence she does not wear the sash and other regalia like other female royals. I think Caroline of Monaco is the only female given the Order of Sait-Charles.

      • molly June 9, 2013 at 20:42 #

        Actually, Charlene got one in November of last year. She wore it once on National Day, and she should have worn it to this wedding as well with a tiara. As a woman in the same position as a Queen Consort, Im pretty shocked by her lack of regalia and jewels.

        • Abril June 10, 2013 at 20:36 #

          If Charlene got the Order of Saint Charles, she should have worn it. At the very least a tiara!! I agree with you pretty shock at her disregard at the protocol….she is a royal now!

        • Abril June 10, 2013 at 20:36 #

          If Charlene got the Order of Saint Charles, she should have worn it. At the very least a tiara!! I agree with you pretty shock at her disregard at the protocol….she is a royal now!

  23. jane June 9, 2013 at 01:00 #

    i’m not sure if Marie-Chantal and Tatiana should be called princesses.Greece has not monarchy and they nothing else that the family of ex-kings and queens.

  24. Dressaddict June 9, 2013 at 12:13 #

    Oh, I forgot to say that Mette Marit looks pregnant in this picture ;)

  25. Kathy June 9, 2013 at 16:28 #

    Why do these pictures remind me of a suburban high school prom? Frankly, I’m disappointed. These gowns look like they were bought on clearance from a department store. Princess Stephanie’s dress is tacky. The dirty toffee color on Princess Charlene is a major turn-off. MAJOR prom vibes from Princess Tatiana. My favorite is Princess Marie’s look, though it is very twee.

  26. amy June 10, 2013 at 13:44 #

    Princess Marie of Denmark looks really good. I like it. My second fave is Charlene: yes the color is not summery but still she looks more stylish and original than the others twee looks. About the one who wore white, it’s not the greatest choice, i’m sure she could have find another dress in a less questionable color

  27. Moxie June 10, 2013 at 15:05 #

    Only the bride should wear a gown with a train to a wedding. On anyone else it is inappropriate and screams “look at me.”

    Princess Anna of Bavaria is my clear favorite.

  28. EmmaWoodhouse June 14, 2013 at 14:51 #

    Mette, Maria of Denmark, Silvia, Martha, Anna are BDOTY contenders for me. I do like most of the others, though. What an elegant event. I love royal weddings!

  29. Dragana D June 21, 2013 at 18:23 #

    My favorite is Anna of Bavaria.
