Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg In Elie Saab
Hi, Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg! You’re not a princess we know all that well, but after finding out that you’re a princess who wears couture, we want to get together for coffee or something! Also, everyone at your wedding looks pretty attractive – and that is of the UTMOST importance when you’re a princess getting married, darling. What’s the point of being a princess if you can’t live in a fucking fairy tale, amirite?
Wedding ceremony of Prince Guillaume Of Luxembourg and Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg at the Cathedral of our Lady of Luxembourg in Luxembourg. The bride wore an Elie Saab couture gown embroidered with silver thread leaves, three-quarter length sleeves and an ivory silk tulle veil. The bridal bouquet, which was later offered to the statue of the Virgin Mary, was created by Parisian Maison Lachaume. She was escorted down the aisle by her eldest brother, Count Jehan de Lannoy.
“The tiara is composed of 270 old-cut brilliants set in platinum, with a diamond in an inverted pear shape superimposed in the centre. A dozen larger brilliants stand out owing to their closed sets, appearing like buttons along the patterns of leafed scrolls. The contours of the tiara, traced by the arrangements of the stones, are underlined by a thin line of platinum gilded pearls.”
“The tiara was made by Altenloh in Brussels. Ernest Altenloh, son of a silversmith, created the company in 1878. At the beginning of the 20th century, he was joined by Robert Altenloh, who rapidly established the international reputation of the company through the quality of its jewels and the designs of its silver work. Their shop, first located on the rue de la Madeleine close to the Royal Palace (1, place Royale – now the Magritte Museum), also sold pieces by other designers.”
The dress and veil are really gorgeous, the prince looks kind of hot, and all your little attendants are adorable, but we must say, Steph, there’s something kind of hilarious and endearing about the fact that even YOU stuck your bridesmaids in an ugly shade of peach just to keep the focus on you. Even princesses have shitty taste in bridesmaid wear.
