After an intimate wedding ceremony with just 140 guests, Crown Prince Al Hussein and Princess Rajwa Al Hussein of Jordan headed to Al Husseiniya Palace for a lavish reception for some 1700 guests. But the celebrations of the Jordan Royal Wedding actually concluded with a dazzling Wedding banquet which was a White-tie event.

It was a night full of dazzling tiaras, royals jewels and royal regalia. After a long time, we saw a royal event where the Royal ladies dazzled their jewel vault. The coronation of King Charles III was expected to be the one but Charles decided to go with the day dress code hence no one was wearing any royal regalia except for the few working members of the British Royal family.
You can watch the arrival of the Royals at the banquet here. King Abdulla II, Queen Rania, Crown Prince Al Hussein, Princess Rajwa Al Hussein and her parents were standing in the reception line to meet and greet all the guests.
In the official Press release, The Royal Hashemite court describes the banquet as “The Wedding Banquet will combine the formalities and diplomatic aspects of a state banquet with the joyous celebration and traditions of a wedding ceremony”.
Now to what Princess Rajwa Al Hussein chose for the Evening banquet.
Princess Rajwa Al Hussein chose another white outfit for the evening. This time a Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda ball gown with floral applique details sans any embellishment just like her wedding dress.
The gown featured cap sleeves, a deep neckline with an elaborated fit-and-flare silhouette and intricate embroidery in the shape of large swirls. Rajwa accessorised the gown with matching elbow-length gloves.
She was wearing her Wedding tiara and earrings. The tiara was a custom-made piece by French Jewellery designer Fred. The brand confirmed upon my enquiry that they made the piece but for the time being they cannot provide more information about the Tiara or its creation process.
The Tiara features Arabic calligraphy on the side, reading: “Rajwatum min Allah” which translates to “A prayer answered by God”. Queen Rania during Rajwa’s Henna Party called Rajwa an answer to her prayers for Al Hussein.
