5. The wedding of Crown Princess Victoria to Daniel Westling
I’m not a fan of the flower girls’ dresses, however, the pageboy outfits make up for it in their cuteness. Plus, having the future Queens of Norway, and Belgium, plus the future King of Denmark makes this group extra darling.
4. The wedding of Hereditary Grand Duke Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg to Stéphanie de Lannoy’s
The colors, though a nice tribute to their country, were a tad too much for such an occasion…however, the literal cut of the dresses and suits were perfection. Had the colors been used more as accents, not the entire outfit, this group would have won by a landslide.
3. The wedding of Princess Madeleine to Chris O’Neill
The color palette was phenomenal. I love the use of white for the dresses, and how they don’t look too ‘bride-y’ — if you will. The flower girl dresses, plus their frilly socks and shoes, and tiny bouquets are precious. However, I think the older flower girl’s dress could have a been a bit longer. The pageboys’ outfits are sweet, but just seemed a bit unfinished… I can’t quite put my finger on it, though.
2. The wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton
This was a tough call. I loved these outfits so much, and thought the kids added so much personality to the wedding, but they lacked in uniqueness. The Spanish royal wedding oozed of cultural influence, and while the British royal wedding had the pageboys uniforms, the little flower girl dresses were… predictable. But, that doesn’t mean they weren’t absolutely darling.
1. The wedding of Prince Felipe of Spain to Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano
The colors. The sashes. The ode to the country and its culture. The buckles on the shoes. The frills. THIS is how you do a royal wedding.
Bonus: The wedding of Prince Charles to Diana Spencer
In terms of candid royal wedding photos of all time, this is in my top three. But this is about the flower girls and pageboys… I love these dresses. They complemented Diana’s dress wonderfully. I think, however, the material looks a little too much like knit sheets, and I am not a huge fan of the flower crowns. The little shoes are so sweet and classic, though.
