For the civil wedding, the dress worn by Princess Victoria Romanovna Romanoff was made by the designer Chiara Boni in an ice-blue color, embroidered with gold thread inspired by the traditional folkloric designs of Khokhloma. Ice-blue is also the color of the Imperial Order of Saint Andrew the First Called, which is the most important dynastic order of the Russian Imperial House. It was founded by Peter the Great in 1698. The light blue ribbon of the Order of Saint Andrew served as an inspiration for the shade of the dress of the civil marriage.

The marriage certificates!
