These pictures are beautiful. Just stunning. I'm surprised a white purse was included at Victoria's gown. I have never seen it.

Lovely exhibit. Even more in love with Victoria's dress

Totally understandable Madeleine stayed home if her two small kids are ill. It's not like they are in Stockholm and she would only be gone for an hour or two. And if her own stomach isn't doing well, I highly doubt an airplane would help.

this exposition looks very fun! i wish all the royal families did something similar once the current generation gets married.

a couple of questions:
- i wonder if they also added sofia's second wedding dress to the exhibit? i don't think victoria or madeleine had a 2nd wedding dress, but sofia did, so i wonder if it is included.

- also, i liked that they added victoria and madeleine's pre-wedding dresses. is sofia's there too, somewhere else perhaps?

You can see in this gallery that they included Madeleine's second dress (which was originally Silvia's dress) and Sofia's second dress. Vickan didn't have a second dress.

Sofia pre-wedding dress did not seem to be included, so I wonder if she got rid of it? like it was only a loan? Or maybe Madeleine & Vickan's were included because they were both Elie Saab.

thank you! you are very eagle eyed

indeed! i forgot that madeleine also had a second dress, but i didn't know (or remembered) that it was one of silvia's gala dresses! sweet detail that madeleine used her mum's wedding dress for the private gathering. do we have pictures of silvia wearing it?

here's a link with pictures.
The Royal Source: Madeleine's second wedding dress

i now see sofia's second dress. i hope we get more detailed pictures of it as we only saw the top part of it, through the balcony. was the second dress made also by the designer of the first dress, ida sjöstedt?

EDIT: a picture of the 2nd dress. it looks like it has embroidery in the front.

sofia's veil, by the way, was really pretty.

We do! Silvia wore it to the 2001 Nobel Prize. Here is a post I did about it back in 2013.

Pär Engsheden, the designer of Victoria's wedding dress, told to the press that there is a little secret on Victoria's dress - There is a small blue bow somewhere inside the dress but it is a secret that the Crown Princess shall keep for herself.

The shoes caught my eye. Victoria's shoes look Pilgrim-y with the diamond buckles. Madeleine's were strappy with pearls. Sofia's were plain but I don't understand showing the scuffs on the bottom for the exhibit; and the tack-on platform looks like it was made to prevent the wearer from slipping and falling.

i was confused about this way of displaying sofia's shoes too - my guess is that the platform was 'heart shaped' so they wanted to show it because it is a wedding exhibit?

After the meeting with the President of Poland, the king, queen, Victoria and Daniel met Margot Wallström, the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
A couple of times a year the Minister for Foreign Affairs with her staff meets the royal couple and crown princess couple to discuss about the planning of state visits and official trips. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs makes proposals to state visits.
