what the ladies wore at the Connaught-Sweden wedding

The Duchess of Connaught gown was "pale mauve."   The Crown Princess of Sweden wore a "white satin dress, the body crossed by the red ribbon of a Swedish order."

The Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, born Princess Augusta of Cambridge, and the aunt of the Princess of Wales, is in mourning for her late husband, the Grand Duke.  She attended the wedding privately and did not wear evening dress.  She wore a "gown of black brocade, with a silkea mantle embroidered in jet and trimmed with black Chantilly Lace."  She wore a black bonnet, which was trimmed by a white feather.

Princess Frederica of Hanover was dressed in a "gown of ivory-tiated satin brocade in a floral design, with draperies of old lace on the skirt and bodice."   Her jewels included diamond ornaments, a collar and a necklace of diamonds."

This is based on a report in The Times.
