Wedding Of Prince Amedeo Of Belgium And Elisabetta Maria Rosboch Von Wolkenstein

On Saturday (July 5) Prince Amedeo of Belgium and Elisabetta Rosboch von Wolkenstein were married at the Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere, Rome, Italy.

The bride wore a breathtaking Valentino Haute Couture gown accompanied by a diamond tiara, diamond-and-pearl earrings and a cascading veil.

Her gown featured a high-neck illusion bodice and three-quarter-length sleeves made of finely dotted silk tulle trimmed in lace, which continued over the bodice of the gown. This lace detail and dotted silk tulle were repeated on the full skirt, which flowed into a light-as-air train.

Valentino continues to be the go-to designer for royal brides.

Princess Claire Of Luxembourg Married HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg In Elie Saab Couture

Wedding Of Prince Felix Of Luxembourg & Claire Lademacher : Reception At 'Couvent Royal'

While all eyes were on the 2013 Emmy Awards this weekend, a Royal wedding was taking place at the Basilique Sainte Marie-Madeleine on Saturday in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, France.

Claire Lademacher (now Princess Claire Of Luxembourg) married HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg wearing an Elie Saab Haute Couture wedding dress which the designer created especially for the occasion.

Entirely made and embroidered by hand in the designer’s Haute Couture ateliers, the bridal gown’s design took its inspiration from the idea of an Ode to Delicateness.

The royal wedding dress was made of Chantilly lace embroidered with cream-and-silver silk-thread leaf motifs and embellished with translucent crystals and mother-of-pearl sequins.

The veil was made of ivory silk-tulle decorated with neo-baroque leaf motifs, echoing the embroidery patterns on the gown. The train was three metres long.

The groom wore a classic morning suit in three shades of grey with a blue tie. Pinned on his lapel is the miniature of the Order of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau.

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.

Does Princess Victoria’s gown scream ‘upstage attempt’ to you, or did she celebrate her sister’s nuptials in style?

Re-Run Royals

It turns out that there was more than one case of déjà vu from the Royal Wedding celebrations this weekend; four in fact.

The Royals guests dressed in Chanel Couture, Matthew Williamson and Elie Saab, had each worn a look seen on the red carpet once before.

Who wore it better?

Princess Caroline of Monaco (prefer her accessories), Princess Zeina of Jordan (prefer the dress in red) Vanessa Paradis (prefer her sheer version) and Doutzen Kroes was a very easy choice.
