I totally agree with you, KitKat - I would be so annoyed if my dad were dictating who my bridesmaids could or couldn't be!

The emphasis on unmarried women as bridesmaids seems odd to me, anyway. Is this a common custom in Europe? I've never heard of it being an issue in the U.S. - a girl just picks her closest friends regardless of their marital status. I have a friend marrying next summer with a married woman as a bridesmaid, and nobody's even noticed.

I can't say for sure regarding other european countries, but in Germany bridesmaids as you know them in the U.S. aren't very common. Usually it's just the maid of honour and the best man and that's all. But in that case it's completely unimportant if they're married or not. My maid of honour wasn't married, but that was completely coincidental. It was my best friend and I would have chosen her either way and no-one could have stopped me.

Exactly! He is the King! Not a Dictator! He's just a representative person and even if he had any might in his hands he shouldn't use it in this case. Victoria and Daniel are the ones to decide whatever is happening. No-one else!

Can someone confirm this or is it just yet another urban legend?

Ok, first everybody's mad because Victoria wants her dad to walk her down the aisle. Now the King decrees that bridesmaids should be single.
Gee, I'm glad I'm a non-royal not bound by any traditions other than my own.

But I love the royals, all of them, and I wish Victoria all the best. And if she wants her dad to walk her down the aisle just because she wants to have him there, not necessarily to give her away, let her have her way on her wedding day. It will only last a few minutes and it won't hurt anybody. Everybody should lighten up...

Seriously what the heck did Madeleine wear to the wedding?!? Soooo disappointed.

Whatever about her not being aorund for ages in the run up to her sister's wedding,cancelling her apperances and depriving all of the royal wedding starved public of another royal wedding..She let down this big fan with THAT dress! Yuck!

She looks like blue cabbage..although it is a very nice shade of blue..aanndd her hair and make are super pretty.

Why didn't she wear that nice gown from the government dinner the night before? She looked stunning in that.

The dove grey gown from the government dinner the night before - much better!

You can discuss her dress, in the fashion thread if you like.
This is a thread about Princess Madeleines current events, not the wedding, there are two other threads for that.

According to Daniel Nyhlén from Svensk Damtidning, Madeleine was partying at the night clubs of Båstad last week(end).
