I'm sure that's why they were chosen, that way every thing is kept quiet until the court says so. Got to hand it to them, it must not be easy to keep quiet! I image then must have all sort of people pushing them for information, all there family, friends, neighbors. Even those who are upset over the cost must be wondering what the dress looks like. As much I dieing to know more details now, the wedding will be more enjoyable with more surprises and making our own guesses (even thought I'm sure I will be way off ).

It is a time honoured tradition that the cameo tiara is worn to get married in. I would have like to see Cp Vickie get married in her mother's beautifully timeless Dior gown that is as modern as the most modern Armani. I think they would have ad to add a piece because Silvia was not as tall as Princess Vickie. I still would have loved to see her in it.Cannot wait to see the wedding cake and all the tiers to it.

Her name is Crown Princess Victoria or just Victoria if you don't want to use her title.

I think Vickie is a nickname for Victoria, which is probably why they were using it. Usually in the US the nickname for Victoria is Torie.

The wedding is so close. Victoria must be really nervous by now. Can't wait to see the festivities

I've never heard of Torie being the "standard" nickname for Victoria in the States. The standard, go-to nickname for a girl named Victoria is Vicky. Some girls may prefer to be called something else, for example Tori Spelling (her birth name is Victoria). However that's more an exception, rather than the rule.

I do agree with grevinnan though, she shouldn't be referred to as Princess Vickie; that sounds very child-like and infantile, and she's a 32 year old grown woman about to married. Her name is Victoria and that's what she should be called.

I read somewhere that when Victoria was a small she was called Toria, Toja or Oja...
I don't know is it true or rumour.

In California and Texas it's usually Tori/Torie. I can't count how many Victoria's I know and every one of them go by Tori. Most of the Vicky's I know were born with that name and not Victoria. I guess Vicky is more east coast

In Sweden her nickname is Vickan.
I'm not sure if that's with her family or with the press though.

Victoria is privately called "Oja" by her family and friends.
SVERIGE Kronprinsessan Victoria | Svensk Damtidning
The press has always called her "Vickan".

Thanks For the info.
I suspected that came from the press.
Oja, yes. Wasn't that because either Carl-Philip or Madeleine couldn't say her name?
I have a vague memory hearing something like that.

Curious, who will be pay for the wedding? I understood that the Danisk and Norwegian weddings were paid for by the family but that the Swedish wedding next month is to be paid for by taxes (the people).

Any solid info/links about this?

King Carl Gustaf pays half of the total bill.

In the pre-wedding information thread it was said that Prince Christian will attend the wedding so I am hoping he will be a page boy. I wonder if any other royal children such as Ingrid Alexandra and Catharina-Amalia will be there? I also think Daniel's niece will be a flower girl. Hopefully she chooses both royal and non-royal godchildren

I believe that Norway has confirmed the attendence of the Haakon and Mette Marit but not IA.
But I do really hope they both will be flower girls.

"more than just a dress?"

I don't know what I would classify more than just a dress? I am very interested now...

I wonder if Victoria is going to keep her hair closed or partly open in the wedding, like in some events recently. I absolutely love her hair style like this: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/8YRLOwDIpqg/0.jpg

What do you think? Is it inappropriate to keep hair open like that in the (royal) wedding?
It must depend a lot on the wedding dress she is wearing, at least.

Expressen writes that Daniel's sister's daughters Vera (6) and Hedvig (11) will arrive to the church as flower girls together with the crown princess couple. Also princess Catharina-Amalia of the Netherlands and prince Christian of Denmark will be in this role. Also they write that Daniel's father will keep a speech in the wedding and Daniel's relatives Hugo and Thomas Westling will play violin.

I doubt she will wear her hair down and it does depend a lot on the dress, but her hairstyle has to last all day. She most likely will wear an updo so she won't have to worry about the wind, humidity, etc. The carriage ride alone with wreak havoc on her hair...unless she applys a truckload of hairspray.
