Luxembourg Royal Wedding! Part 1: The Bride

I sadly didn’t see this wedding live, unlike the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Prince and Princess of Monaco. Anyhow, after the pre-wedding last night and all the good looking guests. I was wondering how everyone looked today. Well, there were so many wedding guests at we will have a double post!

Dress - FrontSome Detail

Stephanie walked down the aisle in a Elie Saab Couture. It was, in some ways, exactly what you’d expect from this designer. He certainly has a couture style, which is part of the reason why I love his work: you can tell this stuff is couture from a mile away, every tiny embellishment expertly completed by hand. And in the case of this dress, that personal effort took 3,200 hours for embroidery from a team of 15 people and 700 hours from a team of 10 seamstresses.


She wore a Lannoy family tiara, made of platinum and diamonds with a large inverted pear shape diamond in the high center. It was made by Althenloh of Brussels and was worn by Stéphanie’s sisters and sisters-in-law at their weddings. She also wore diamond earrings, a delicate necklace, and her late mother’s engagement ring as well as her own.


The train, I say, looked amazing! It fit the dress well, it wasn’t taking the attention away from the dress. But, it wasn’t too short, for the dress.

The veil was placed inside of Stephanie’s bun-updo that she had. The veil had flower details on it, much similar to the train.

The Kiss

Last but not least, the very magical kiss that this balcony hasn’t seen in MANY years… they are just a great couple! I nominate them as the cutest couple of the year. Who’s with me?
