I have never liked the traditional Russian court dress, with the long sleeves hanging off the arms. But a part from that some of these women got married in some magnificent gowns and dresses even up to a decade after the revolution. Even with no country to call their own they could still put on a good wedding.

Maria Alexandrovna, Duchess of Coburg saved her own wedding dress. Her granddaughters Marie & Kyra were both married in that dress.

Yes Olga Feodorovna was the new name for Cecile of Baden.  Her granddaughter was named after her and became Crown Princess of Germany.

Oh good gawd, a Russian Royal Wedding on tv would be something to see. I just cry thinking about the possibilities, and the fact that it will never happen.

Yes...Poor George will one day have to marry and Grand Duchess Maria will want a good show for her son.

His uniform looked pretty plain and unimpressive unlike his father's.

  I seem to recall (from some years ago) that this attire was referred to as the "Uniform of the Nobility," or words to that effect.  Apparently a somewhat multi-purpose outfit.                                              Regards,  AP.

I remember reading that prior to the wedding, there was some anxious discussion over what he would wear, since he was not a military man and thus had no military uniform.

It's a lovely photo, in terms of the physical attributes and beautiful clothing of the bridal couple, but Felix Yusupov, quite frankly, makes my skin crawl.

I think Felix might try on the bridal gown himself some nights. He was proud of his beauty (cross dress) and included it in her memoirs.

Any idea who the other people are in these pictures, apart from Louis Ferdinand?

Most likely Dimitri signed as witness in the signing of the wedding certificate.
