  1. There is no "Yugoslavia" anymore, neither is there a monarchy. Does he call himself "Prince"? Ridiculous. Anyway the bride is very elegant.
    I have a lot of collegues from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia in our team and they told me that the service in an orthodox church lasts up to three hours, and there are no benchs or chairs to sit down. They have to stand all the time.
    But everybody wants to outshine the others and so the ladies wear high heels even Victoria Beckham could not cope with. So they arrive 10 minutes before the service ends and say "oh, we were so excited, we did not find the church" or something like that...

    1. Why ridiculous according to you?
      The breakup of Yugoslavia doesn't mean the people with hereditary title should not exist. Hereditary Title WILL ALWAYS remain in families.

    2. @ Coralie, if you have been in the great cathedrals in Europe they also do not have pews.There may be chairs but there are modern.
      PS. You can see clearly red chairs at this wedding on 2 first photos.

    3. I am from Serbia and that's right, there is no dress code for church.

    4. @Coralie, look here for Yugoslavia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Yugoslavia
      and as far as sitting, remember the Orthodox church wedding of Crown Prince of Greece? Chairs all over the cathedral? I think there's no rule that one must stand up. Just like in a catholic church, it's up to you: stand or sit, or kneel at that.

    5. I have been in Moscow and there are not chairs. Also women wore their head covered with a handkerchief..
      Someone orthodox might explain it.

    6. @Liza You are incorrect about the Catholic church. One cannot choose whether to stand, sit or kneel. There are specific parts of the mass where everyone stands, everyone kneels, and everyone sits. Only the elderly or disabled would have an excuse to remain seated.

    7. @ chardonn8r, liza is right about catholic church, it is up to the person whether to sit or stand . Of course it is different when it comes to mass. I am sure Liza knows that and everybody else.

    8. @Anon 1:34 I am Roman Catholic and have been my entire life. I don't know what you are talking about. Whether a marriage has a mass or not, there are prayers that require standing, some do not. Maybe I am missing something?

  2. iN Duitsland zien we vele prinsen en prinsessen, en ze blijven hun titel houde, al dan niet officieel.
    laat ons nog een paar prinsen en prinsessen, om te dromen.

  3. Is not that a nasty dress. The bride can feel sorry for her in her "Wurstpelle". It does not look really happy. Too bad - on such a day !!

    1. I'm pretty sure she had several fittings beforehand and decided to have the dress taylored/fitted this way. There's not really much of a "Wurstpelle" about it. As a matter of fact, I truly like the bodice and the satin kummerbund-like draping arond the high waist. The only issue I might have is the center front seam/stitching. Apart from that it is a mighty fine dress.

    2. DSC , I think the dress its beautiful; but it is against my expertise to wave the incompetence of a seamstress who would allow such a major professional mishap go public. It is comparable to hiring a violinist who'd forgotten how to play on G3 string! We are talking a royal wedding, and a seam running full length of the front of the bride's most important dress. She's a gorgeous young lady and the concept of the royal dress is an understated but very exciting variation on a historic theme. SO sorry that there was no one skillful enough to at least appliqué small buttons or flowers on that darn seam. But it was a happy occasion: Congratulations to the newlyweds!

  4. Is she now a princess?

  5. I don´t like the upper part of the dress. Good idea, but it stands out from the body in an unpleasant way.

  6. Me gusta la parte superior del vestido de la novia, es muy original. Por desgracia, de cintura para abajo está mal confeccionado. Esa costura central es un desastre.
    Al pantalón del novio le sobran 5 cm de longitud.
    Pero que sean felices y el amor dure mucho tiempo.

  7. Very elegant and beautiful bride. The dress is regal.

  8. Sorry but this dress is a desaster. The idea of the dress is nice and elegant but it is so bad tailored. So sad for the bride. Otherwise she is glowing and her smile to her husband is amazing.

  9. Beautiful dress. Lovely bride.

  10. Yugoslavia was a monarchy between 1929-1941.
    It was then a republic for more than fifty years until the country was dissolved
    in 1992.
    Why cling to a title from a country in which you have never lived?

    1. It was well known that people with titles were not "liked" in communist countries and that is why they left after the war. You have the title till the end of your life whether you lived or not in that country.

  11. For those who don't like the bodice, I think it might be a removable " jacket". I'm betting there is a strapless dress for the reception underneath.

  14. A new Pss. for Serbia aka Yugoslavia. Best Wishes to the Newlyweds, on their special day. The dress is very nice.

  15. Well, I'm an orthodox and all I can say is that there are chairs in orthodox churches and that the dress code is according the event, that means that you usually dress up in a wedding don't you?
    Either you can visit a church with your every day clothes, something not too sexy though.
    In a wedding or in an official ceremony it is not usual for the people to be seated in order to can see the ceremony and my wedding had lasted one hour which is normal.
