Throughout the entire run-up to CP Victoria's wedding I think the vast majority of us were hoping she would NOT wear the abominable Cameo Tiara as her mother did. Never mind the atrocious veil!

I didn't care how old it was, I thought it almost ugly. But, I had forgotten that when Sylvia walked up the aisle she walked as a commoner. When King Carl Gustav walked her back it was as his Queen.

When Victoria stepped out of the car and stood on the Cathedral steps she looked every inch the Queen she will become. Resplendent in the Cameo Tiara atop the historic veil, she looked positively Magestic.
I had to smile when I read this comment, because I was one of those people who really, really hoped that it wouldn't be the cameo tiara for Victoria. What shall I say, I now love the way Victoria had looked with it. Meanwhile, I have even come to like the way Silvia, Desiree and Birgitta looked with it. But for me it had nothing to do with them being either princesses or a commoner, it was just that Victoria looked lovely and shining. She wore it really well, and it worked well with her gown and the way she had placed the veil.

I wish that I could pick more than one favorite. If I could, I would pick Claire of Belgium and Mette Marit for how well their tiaras worked with their features, Laurentien of the Netherlands for just how well the Laurel wreath worked with her updo, plus the similarity of her name to the tiara, lol, and finally Victoria. The Cameo just was an added facet to her glow that day, plus it emphasized to me, at least, that here was a future queen on her wedding day. I just can't pick one from these.

I never like the cameo, too. But Victoria's look definitely is my favourite, every piece works amazingly well with other piece. I just love the cameo in Victoria's wedding day.
