The royals exchanged vows with two ceremonies and plenty of hats!

Here comes another royal bride.

Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg wed Belgian Countess Stephanie de Lannoy in a lavish two-day celebration that had many familiar traditions over the weekend.

Prince Guillaume, 30, is the last hereditary prince in Europe to tie the knot, and the royal family was out in full force – and fabulous fascinators – to wish the prince and his 28-year-old bride the best.

Before their religious ceremony at Luxembourg’s Notre Dame Cathedral, the couple exchanged vows during a civil ceremony at city hall. Following their grand ceremony, Prince Guillaume and his new princess pleased cheering crowds – much like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – with a kiss on the balcony.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex – whose daughter Lady Louise Windsor played an adorable role in The Duke and The Duchess’s wedding – represented the British royal family at the nuptials.

Prince Carl Philip of Sweden – who bears a striking resemblance to Orlando Bloom – and Princess Martha Louise of Norway also attended. With the men dressed in their military best, the women chose over-the-top hats to complement their ensembles.

But it was beige and camel colored hats that made the biggest statement at the ceremony. Princess Maxima of the Netherlands, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Princess Letizia of Spain and Princess Mathilde of Belgium all donned neutral colored hats in a variety of shapes and shades.

Meanwhile, Princess Stephanie’s bridesmaids couldn’t be ignored in form-fitting peach dresses. While holding the bride’s enormous train (she wore an Elie Saab Haute Couture gown), the women seemed to take a tip from Pippa Middleton‘s unforgettable entrance which highlighted her svelte figure.

Middleton recently addressed her rise to fame, attributing it to her role in her sister’s wedding.

“It’s a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom,” she said.
