Friday is game day around here, where the community’s opinion is solicited on various pressing royal matters. For the next few weeks, we are switching our focus from state visits back to weddings. We promised a vote on your favorite wedding look from the neck up, so this is your time. This week is the free-for-all, where everything is thrown into the ring for consideration. Next week we’ll narrow it down to five choices, and then down to two the week after. As always, the Hofdames are certainly happy to give you some thought starters.
LuckeyGirl: In a shocking pick (to absolutely no one) I’m throwing Crown Princess Victoria into the ring (not literally…Swedish Secret Service…just a joke). The Cameo Tiara isn’t an easy one to wear, to me it needs room to stand out in all its Napoleonic glory.
The Handbag: Madeleine looks entirely different from her sister Victoria whose marriage only three years earlier was fresh in everyone’s mind. And what a great look it is! The Modern Fringe Tiara is a sunny, happy tiara, and the new veil was a lovely surprise. I love the sprigs of orange blossoms that hide the base. The soft updo was the perfect hair to complement it all, and those historic Vasa Earrings with the gorgeous briolettes harken back to family and royal tradition.
OrangeChia: Oma, in allllllll of her 1960s glory. A Crown Princess wearing a ginormous tiara on her ginormous hair along with a ginormous veil and her ginormous smile. Sublime.
LiL: When you remember one of your favorite tiaras of all time was used in a wedding, you HAVE to go for it – for weal or for woe. Luckily for us, Infanta Cristina’s bridal look was wealing all over the place. The Spanish Floral Tiara is a perfect choice for a wedding. When you pair it up with “simple” diamond earrings, a bare neck, a tidy chignon, and beautiful, yet restrained veil, you get a winner of a look.
Vote for one (or more) of the above choices, or throw your own suggestions into the ring! Vote as often as you like, and add as many choices as you want. The poll closes at ET 12:00 noon, Wednesday, October 6.
