Princess Madeleine's Wedding Dress

Expressen has asked from some royal experts, whan kind of a wedding dress and wedding ring Madeleine will have.
Johan T Lindwall, royal reporter at Expressen
The dress:
- I am convinced that it is designed by a swedish designer.
Ring:
- I know that Madeleine was with Chris in London and chose her engagement ring. I believe that Madeleine has decided herself also the wedding ring. It can certainly be obtained in Stockholm by one of the Royal Jewellers. The ring probably is very tasteful and stylish.
Sten Hedman, royal expert
The dress:
- I believe that Madeleine wants to be quite spectacular. She doesn't want to be so insanely regal, but a little bolder but still within limits. It will not be an equally traditional dress that her aunts had. I think she chooses a swedish designer who gets a little more freedom in the design.
Ring:
- Formally, it is Chris who chooses and buys it. Madeleine has certainly helped and given clear instructions, she is determined and knows what she wants. Again, I believe in something extra and exciting, maybe it will be from an American jeweler.
Johanna Lejon, royal reporter at Svensk Damtidning
The dress:
- It wouldn't surprise me if Madeleine chooses lace. She really likes it and has had many lace dresses recently. She can loosen up more than Victoria could.
Ring:
- The engagement ring is very large and quite modern. The wedding ring will also be modern, also in platinum with diamonds. I think it will be an eternity ring which agrees well with the engagement ring. I think Chris knows what Madeleine wants, she is quite definite in her taste.

Same... She looks gorgeous in lace! I don't see Valentino doing anything less for her -my favorite dress for her in terms of the Nobel dresses was the grey all lace Ellie Saab dress that she wore I believe last year! So, my hope is for lace too as she looks magnificent in it.

No matter what though, Madeline will be a stunning bride! Can't wait!!

i'm hoping (and i'm sure will be) that the wedding dress will be better than the messy dress she chose for the bans. i don't think she will disappoint us in her big day. we are up for some dazzle, i'm keeping fingers crossed for an amazing tiara and a great dress (like the "wow dress" we saw at the wedding in luxembourg). :)

Valentino and his partner will attend the wedding, which makes it probable that he designed the wedding dress:

My expectations for Countess Stephanie de Lannoy's bridal gown could not possibly have been lower. All I was hoping for was that she wouldn't completely embarrass herself. So when she stepped out of that limo in the most exquisitely gorgeous Royal bridal gown I have seen in years I was floored, in fact I still haven't recovered from the shock of it.

It's the complete opposite for Madeleine. I expect her to knock my socks off and if it doesn't happen I will be surprised....

Agreed.

And if he does as well for Maddie as he did for Max, I strongly suspect she'll knock all our socks off and lay us in the aisles with another wedding dress that we'll be drooling over and talking about for years to come!

YUMMY!!!!!

Queen Maxima's Valentino bridal gown is one of my Top Five Royal Wedding Dresses(tied with Stephanie at #2 in fact)...so I am keeping fingers crossed that he gives us another stunner, this time for Madeleine.

Well if Madeleine goes for the Cameo Tiara and the antique lace veil we could run into heavy waters if her dress is lace too! It would all be OTT.

It seems "The Veil" has been used as a "softening" effect against the grandeur of the Cameo, with both her mother and sister going with almost severe dresses to compensate but, if she doesn't wear the veil well lace could be it for the dress. But problematic of the veil.

But then that leaves the tiara?

I just don't see her forgoing the veil! I am fairly certain she will choose that! As much as I would LOVE to see that cameo on her head, now that we have the news of a Valentino dress locked, it's likely she won't wear it.

I've made a speculation post about the gown HERE, Valentino isn't the only potential designer so I've added all the others.

I hope it's Valentino. Maxima's wedding dress is one of my all time favorites. However I doubt she will wear a gown like Maxima's. I hope I will absolutely love her gown like I did her sisters.

Just like the geek I am, I carried a clipping of Maxima's gown around in my purse for days. I thought it so beautiful and elegant I couldn't stop staring at it!

I still go and read up on Max's dress and I still search google photos... It was a one of a kind and SO STUNNING! I want to have a dress someone similar to her dress or at least with a neckline like that -loved it!

If Madeline is in fact wearing Valentino, I only hope her dress does the same for us that Maxima's did. I don't want to see the same dress on her obviously, but I do want typical Valentino and a show stopper on a beautiful young woman!
