Barbara Palvin & Dylan Sprouse’s Hungarian wedding was really beautiful

Last weekend, model Barbara Palvin married actor Dylan Sprouse. Y’all know I’m an Old, so I really had to look up Dylan Sprouse and figure out why he was famous (child actor-turned-Gen Z heartthrob). I know Palvin because she’s a seriously famous model (and she had a fling with Justin Bieber years ago). Palvin is Hungarian and they decided to have their wedding in her country, on her parents’ estate, Harlekin Birtok. They invited Vogue to do the wedding-story and the photos are really great. Like, I’m not a Hungarian supermodel but this wedding seemed to be my idea of a perfect wedding – classic, simple, beautiful, not too fussy. They had 115 guests at this wedding and they plan to do a second wedding in California in a few months.

You can see the full Vogue piece here. Dylan and Barbara met six years ago at an event and they had a meet-cute when he cut in line. While they exchanged numbers, she ghosted him for six months before finally responding to him. By 2019, they were living together. He proposed to her last September on a camping trip in California.

Barabara’s wedding gown was Vivienne Westwood and it’s really beautiful! I sometimes think Westwood’s stuff is too much, too overdone, so you can tell that this look was customized for the bride. She also wore Tiffany & Co diamonds – I would have removed the choker, it does nothing for the overall wedding look. Her reception look was a red dress by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.

    Their wedding photos are stunning, among the most beautiful I’ve ever seen

    • MF says:

      Agree. The whole affair looks like it was extremely tasteful and classy–and the photography here is great!

  2. Anne says:

    Very lovely wedding and beautiful couple. She looks a lot like Susan Dey from the Partridge Family 50 years ago.

    • HandforthParish says:

      I must be in the minority as I don’t love the dress, I find it a bit 18th century undergarment.

      These two fascinate me, they look like twins. Did he grow a moustache so he wouldn’t look too much like his own bride on his wedding day?

      • Haylie says:

        Same. It wasn’t a remarkable depress, wedding, and I’m waiting for the stunning pictures. Lots of puffery here.

        But Barbara and Dylan are pretty people.

  3. Mika says:

    Hungary is a fascist state and Victor Orban is a dictator who controls the media and oppresses Jew and the Romani as a matter of law in order to achieve a white, Magyar, ethnostate.

    Great dress though!

    • Tiffany says:

      That is her home, Mika.

      Unless her family invited Orban there, that is her home.

      The US had their own wannabe dictator for 4 years and people still got married here.

      • Smart&Messy says:

        Thank you Tiffany! I am Hungarian and I am aware of what Mika is talking about but it still stings. A country and its people is so much more complex than that. So are those of the US who sing songs about lynching people. I am sure Mika wouldn’t want to be lumped in a pile with that shit.

        Anyway, I like Barbara so much more for having a Hungarian wedding with the red dress and all. Now I’m curious what other traditions they included. Did someone steal the bride? Was there stuffed cabbage (that I hate) for midnight snacks? Pogácsa and barack cookies?

      • Vera says:

        I wonder if they did the menyecske tanc too?

      • MsGnomer says:

        I hope there was a toast with tokaji, maybe someone danced the csardash. My Hungarian American spouse brought this tradition to our wedding.

    • g says:

      Thanks Mika. As a Hungarian Romani I appreciate the comment and sentiment.

    • Fabiola says:

      Is orban the bride’s dad? What does he have to do with their weddings?

    • Ameerah M says:

      And what does that have to do with this wedding and the Bride getting married in the country she was born in and her family still resides?? Was Orban AT the wedding??

    • Mika says:

      I know what I did. I’m Hungarian by decent, I’ve spent a lot of time there, and… I’m upset. You’re right, the United States, the UK, ITALY… lots of places have problems and we talk about them. We never talk about the human rights abuses happening in Hungary. North America looks away. The EU (!!!!!) looks away. I’m tired of people just not talking about the oppression happening there. And if I have to bring it up on a post about Jughead’s wedding, I will.

  4. tour malinn says:

    I am Hungarian so I can reveal that the twirly red dress after the ceremony is traditional in Hungary, too.

    • michyk says:

      @tour malinn-i loved that pic! and i think the caption did say it’s a hungarian tradition to change your dress at midnight because you’re no longer a bride but a wife. i love that. it also looks like everyone had a great time. sometimes pics of celebrity weddings look like everyone is posing all the time.

  5. tour malinn says:

    Hungary us not fascist oer se, Viktor Orban is. Not the same! And he opresses LMBTQ+ not Jews and Romani as he is part Romani (a rumor that goes around).

    The rest is correct, although I was happy to see a post just about celebrity gossip and not politics and Orban. Can we do that please?

  6. SAS says:

    LOVE the red reception dress! Maybe it’s just because I don’t know these two but I really can’t tell the personal touches or style here (other than that reception dress)- it literally just looks like a Vogue shoot to me. And I surprisingly never think that about the Vogue weddings, they’re usually captured so intimately! She is incredibly beautiful.

  7. girl_ninja says:

    It truly was such a lovely wedding. It was so elegant and understated. I watched a little ‘Date Night” they did for Vogue on YouTube and they were really cute together. They seemed to really enjoy, respect and love each other.

    Happy union to them.

  8. Hungarian here says:

    Orban is a bl*** fasist but it has nothing to do with Barbara. Her reception look was indeed a Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini number, a white one but the red dress is a traditional Hungarian dress for after midnight called menyecske ruha by a Hungarian designer MERO.

    • Vera says:

      came here to say the same. The red one is her 3rd dress. And yes same about Orban. But my mum and friends live in Hungary. I couldnt go move permanently but I visit as much as I can.

  9. s808 says:

    her wedding dress is STUNNING! the whole wedding looks so beautiful, elegant, simple and timeless the way a wedding should be. i think the event and her dress will age well.

  10. SIde Eye says:

    These pics are stunning. She is so beautiful and I noticed her real teeth in her smile. She is a natural beauty – no real housewife face here. The dress photographs beautifully. He’s beautiful too, and together they are striking.

    I always pay attention to the guests. I always notice when there’s 300 people in a room and not a POC in sight. I noticed their Black guests immediately. I know it’s strange but my family is extremely diverse so I it’s something I always pay attention to.

    Happy union to them.

  11. Yup, Me says:

    The Vogue article says SHE cut in front of him in line, not the other way around. And they didn’t exchange numbers at that meeting. He DMed her several times on social media and she finally responded after 6 months.

  12. Tiredmomof2 says:

    I have no idea
    Who either of these people are, but their wedding looked lovely.

  13. Sasha says:

    Ohhh my god she looks absolutely stunning! The dress is perfection on her. Also I love the choker. Beautiful people with long necks may as well show them off. I love chokers as jewellery but they don’t suit me as I don’t have much of a neck unfortunately!

  14. K-Peace says:

    Barbara has been my very favorite model for a while. She’s a natural beauty which is so refreshing to see. I absolutely love her teeth. They aren’t perfect straight blindingly-bright white Chiclet teeth like you usually see on celebrities; they give her face character which enhances her beauty IMO. They look very happy together and i hope they have a long-lasting happy marriage.

  15. Glamarazzi says:

    Everything about this wedding is so tasteful, just refreshing! I don’t know who these crazy kids are but I wish them all the joy in their lives together.

  16. lucy2 says:

    He’s one of the twins who played Ross’ kid on Friends, right? I feel old…
    It looks like a lovely wedding!

  17. QuiteContrary says:

    I LOVE the dresses she chose. Gorgeous.

  18. ama1977 says:

    Beautiful pictures, and they seem cute together (from the limited impression one can form from the article accompanying the photos.) I think it’s sweet that they married in her home country and included Hungarian wedding traditions. I also LOVE that she told him his only job was to “show up and say the right name” which I, as An Old, took as a wink to his role as Ben on “Friends” and the whole Emily-Rachel-wedding cliffhanger.

    Best wishes for a long and happy marriage, Sprouses!!

  19. Michael says:

    Hungary politics aside Barbara seems like a very nice person. She dated Lewis Hamilton briefly but when she was with Bieber his fan base attacked her so hard that she walked away and did not date for years after. I think Dylan was the first guy she dated after that. They do look like brother and sister but I guess nothing is more attractive than seeing your own face on the opposite sex. Anyway, I wish them well. They seem really happy together

    • Ameerah M says:

      Well he has a LITERAL twin so I doubt that’s the reason why he was attracted to her.

  20. Ann says:

    I’ve seen this VW dress so many times and I feel like just recently. I like it. The rest of the wedding seems nice. I need to go to Vogue to see the rest.

  21. Sue E Generis says:

    I guess I must be in the minority since I don’t get the fuss? It looks like two very attractive young people at a lovely but very ordinary wedding to me. No shade, everything looks nice, but I’m not getting the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It’s not even particularly unique.
