  1. Well, I can’t say that I’m not disappointed because I am. Simplicity can be a good thing except when it’s taken to an extreme. Take away the bed sheet she’s dragging that passes for a cape and cut the dress to street length and this is an outfit you could wear to your local pub for a few pints. There’s no embroidery, no lace, no veil, no anything. The cap sleeves are the worst offenders. That photo from the back looks as if she’s wearing a t-shirt. And no tiara! OK, so maybe she probably doesn’t like tiaras- or maybe it wasn’t offered to her. In any case, I think this was probably one of the few times- if not the only time- where she would get to wear one. What a pity! But at least the groom was smiling

    1. I’m afraid I have to agree with you on the Tiara front, but I quite liked the gown! I just felt it needed different styling to fit the setting!

    2. I can’t imagine she wasn’t offered a tiara as she will be the First Lady of the House of Alaba now because the present duke isn’t married. I guess it eas her own choice but for what is she waiting. Unfortunately there are no other occasions for spanish noble ladies to wear their tiaras.

  2. I thought the simplicity of her gown was beautiful. It allowed her personal beauty to shine. A handsome couple. An elegant wedding.
