What do you guys think of Beatrice's bridal look?
At first I wasn't that into it, but according to The Court Jeweller Blog, the dress is actually a loan from Queen Elizabeth. The dress was originally worn by the Queen to the State Opening of Parliament in 1966. Beatrice just added the sleeves (which imo she could have done without, but maybe she felt she needed sleeves for a church wedding? idk). Reusing a dress like this makes sense for this low key wedding, but I have to wonder if this was always the plan. Maybe she had another dress planned and we'll see that one at a reception in London sometime next year?
As for the tiara, she's wearing Queen Mary's Fringe which was the tiara that Queen Elizabeth wore on her wedding day and Princess Anne wore at her first wedding. So, honestly, the sentimentality of wearing a dress on loan from her grandmother in addition to the tiara that her grandmother wore on her wedding day... it's kind of won me over on the whole look. And the flowers behind them are GORGEOUS.
On the ceremony itself, we don't really know what the guest list was, but I'm getting the impression that it was parents, grandparents, siblings and Edo's son in attendance only (maaaaybe the Wessexes were there too because they live so close, but I don't think so). Social distancing guidelines were observed and while music was played, no hymns were sung to reduce the potential of spreading the virus.
