No, we didn't, until Expressen followed the boat to the venue and then it was obvious to the reporters where they were headed. :)

Yes, we did. I posted already in the morning an article about that. Expressen told it already yesterday evening.

She is definitely a very beautiful and attractive woman.

Seems there's see-through fabric all the way down to her breasts though. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to see the crack between the breasts. Think of it what you will.

I'm a bit disappointed. Everyone has looked pretty boring. Madeleine is the most beautiful tonight. Why the Lebanese theme? No-one is connected to Lebanon in any way.

I think Sophia's dress is fine a little skin doesn't hurt and this is her last night before she becomes a princess. Also the sequins cover the skin. Where is there a Lebanese theme shown?

The comments are very interesting. Victoria is showing way more skin and cleavage than Sofia, yet everyone is pretty much in universal agreement that she looks great and not a single person has said she is showing too much skin. IMO they are both dressed completely appropriate. They aren't nuns for goodness sakes!

Maddie looks perfect!

Sofia also looks great, but she could wear a better bra to give a little more lift

What I was thinking is that she looked elegant and there is nothing untoward about the neckline and lace. Victoria's dress showed more dcolletage but I thought that she looked lovely as well

I was just going to post this comment. I also think some of that "darker" appearing part of her top has to do with the light reflecting off the crystals differently in different photos. Its so obvious in some pictures and not visible at all in others.

I'm just happy that the couple appears so very happy and in the moment. Good for them! ROSS has their post up BTW. The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Prince Carl Philip & Sofia’s Wedding: The Pre-Wedding Dinner
Ari is wearing a Zorro sash so that made me smile. And there is a hunky looking, my age-ish, tall, official/security guy photo bombing a lot of these shots. Which has also made me smile.

Well, there is some skin coloured fabric covering her nipples so I guess it's fine. I hope tomorrow she'll choose a more traditional dress and wears her hair up.

The Lebanese theme has been all over Expressen. The food comes from Caf Beirut and you can even see the food served if you read the live feed.

Stylist Jean-Pierre Barda has given points to men's outfits on Expressen, five is the best:
Prince Daniel and Ludvig Blomqvist (boyfriend of Louise Gottlieb): four
Prince Carl Philip, king Carl Gustaf, Jonas Frejd (the boyfriend of Lina Hellqvist) and Patrick Sommerlath: three
Ari Behn: two
S tycker stylisten om prins Carl Philips och de vriga mnnens kldval p festen _ Kungligt _ Expressen

Princesses Christina and Dsire didn't attend, at least I haven't seen photos of them. There was a photo of princess Christina walking near the Royal Palace earlier today.

To be completely honest, I don't think it even matters what Sofia wears. People here would love her no matter what she did because she is marrying a prince.

From Debrett's Guide to Etiquette

Dress Code for Ladies:

Full-length, formal evening dress. It is traditional, but not essential, to show dcolletage. Shorter dresses or trousers, no matter how smart, are not acceptable. - See more at: White Tie, Dress Codes, A to H, British Behaviour, British Etiquette | Debrett's

So decolletage is traditional, and trousers (green or otherwise) are not acceptable. Granted, this is British etiquette, but I have no ready source for Swedish or Scandinavian etiquette.
