This may be a very trivial comment but I would love to see Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Prince Christian in the wedding party. Crown Princess Victoria seems to be close to Haakon and Frederik and I'm sure over her long courtship Daniel has gotten to know them too. And they are two of her godchildren after all

I hope we'll see little European royals as flower girls or bride's maids!Whatever the CP couple chooses to do,I'm sure it's gonna be the royal wedding of the decade!

I thought that I had read somewhere that Prince Christian was going to be in the wedding party. I can't remember where, but it was in a Danish magazine or website. Has she announced the names of the children in the party yet?

It would be adorable if her royal godchildren were bridesmaids and pages! That would include, I think, Prince Christian of Denmark, Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway, Princess Catharina-Amalia of The Netherlands, and Prince Constantine of Greece. (Princess Eleanore of Belgium, I imagine, would still be too small.)

I am pretty sure, we wouldn´t get to know about the flower children until june 19th...or at least june 17th or 18th...if they would do a rehearsal for the big day.
...just as we probably won´t get many other informations until June 2009.

And why all this secrecy?It's gonna be an open wedding after all,so why not providing information earlier?

Unfortunately, the Swedish Royal press & information department under Nina Eldh is neither reliable nor very efficient, nor very willing to provide information in general.
Eleven months in advance I would actually find unreasonably early, though.

I'm sure they haven't decided about most of the things yet.I'm saying that I wouldn't like to hear basic info about their wedding in May or early June,for example.Or a week before,as some members suggested above.Really cruel!lol

Well, the very basics...exact time of the wedding...and if there would be a concert the evening before, meeting with the government, party for the "young" Royals, name of the bishop and reverends marrying them etc. we will get to know latest in early spring, I´d say.

The guest list...3 days - 10 weeks before

But the names of the bridesmaids, flower children, who would read in church, who would design the dress, the menu at the wedding dinner, the tiara the bride would wear...that´s top secret...until mid June...it always had been like that (other CP weddings) and I find it a lot more exciting than revealing everything in advance...

I agree, Lena, it helps to add to the anticipation. And it gives us plenty of time to speculate!

I doubt that,Royal Fan.I can't imagine the CP-and note this,she will be a married woman at her sister's wedding-taking care of Madeleine's dress or train,for example.I'm sure CP Victoria will take her seat next to the royal couple and her new husband.And I don't think Madeleine will be Victoria's Maid of Honor either.

I think it is quite possible that Madeleine could be one of Victoria's bridesmaids, but when it comes to Madeleine's own wedding, I think Victoria is more likely to give a reading than be her Matron/Maid of Honour. Having said that, they've surprised us all with two engagement announces so anything is now possible!

Well perhaps the fact that Silvia was a commoner led to that decision!
Victoria is a future monarch and apart from that I really want to see King Carl-Gustaf walk his daughter down the aisle! A really father-daughter thing to do!

I didn't really understand what you mean here! I am sorry! Can you explain it to me? Or someone else, please?

Two grown up people who made a common decision to get married, walking together into the church to make their promises in front of God and all the guests...sooooo beautiful and right!

When I got married it was no discussion at all about this. I would never ever let my father give me away like something he owned to another man to own. Im not a THING, but a human being, grown up woman... big no no no! (I was 29 -Victoria is going to be 33, 15 years since she turned 18...) ... And to walk into the church on my wedding day together w another man than my husband to be no way!
Me and my husband was walking togheter ( bride to the left when you walk in, and to the right when you walk out). This is the Swedish way and tradition.
But I know, some wedding couples in Sweden want the old father to handle over the bride... they have seen movies from USA and GB and other europe and think thats the way to do it, but its totally against the tradition in Sweden. I dont like it. I will be VERY disapointed if Victoria is given away (just listen to how it sounds -given away) by the King...Victoria and Daniel are toghether into this, lets hope they walk together into the church!
Hey, hey calm down a bit! I am Greek and I believe it is the most wonderful thing that a bride is given away to her future husband by her father! That doesn't imply that you are a ''thing'' and they just ''pass'' you to an other person!

Up until you get married, you lead a life of your own! You have your family, your friends, your boyfriend and so on! You father has been the most important man in your life! For me walking down the aisle with you father represents leaving your ''previous'' life back and getting to ''live'' a brand new start with the man you want to spend the rest of your life with!

You get to have a family of your own together with your husband! A new family! You two alone! Waiting for offspring to come and make your family bigger!

And that's what the change of the family name also represented in the past and represents today! Many women get to change their family name after the wedding or add their husband's family name next to their family name! I don't judge that!

I have read somewhere that the only person that it's not so ok to walk you down the aisle is the father of the groom! Because he is the one that somehow ''welcomes'' you into his family!

That sounded too romantic right! I am not so romantic, it's just what I believe!

And this is only what happens in my country, Greece as well as in many other European countries! It's a tradition here and I don't know what the wedding traditions of Sweden are so if the bride and the groom walk down the aisle together they should stick to that, and don't change it!
