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.
But, it's not a white-tie event, right? i don't think men comply with that dresscode either?

Not exactly IMO. Both Bernadotte sisters look great and the future Mrs. looks stunning as well.

Oh yes, there is tons of unforgiving attitudes out there when it comes to certain current and past royals!

It's been a really warm day and evening here in Stockholm. The first real summer day for this year. I hope they have a good cooling system down there in that underground exhibition hall. Otherwise they are probably sweating by now :-D

From the pictures everyone looks nice. Not a fan of the trousers though.

What a nice way to deal with people who have a different opinion from yours.

Th general idea of the dress was good, and the color too but to me Sofia had a mix of Kim Kardashian's manners and Duchess Catherine of Cambridge's hair...

From Stenstroms, which is apparently a Swedish clothing brand and store:

Black tie
Black tie (in America, tuxedo or simply “tux”) is the comfortable formalwear alternative for many occasions. It can be worn throughout the day and long into the night until the party ends. There are several models: single or double-breasted, with or without silk stripes and in colours black, midnight blue or grey. The fabric may have a silver-gloss or fine velvet finish.

The shirt should have a wing collar, double cuffs (French cuffs) with cufflinks, and preferably narrow pleats and concealed buttoning. Etiquette dictates that the bow tie should be black or dark blue, but nowadays, other colours are acceptable. A cummerbund to match the bow tie completes the ensemble. For the ladies, an evening gown, full-length dress or even a more daring, décolleté (low-cut) very short evening dress is quite appropriate.


Low cut gowns are not unusual in social situations, and they are actually considered to be a part of a dress code. Of course, not every woman is comfortable in such a gown, but for those who are, it is not considered tasteless or vulgar in a sophisticated milieu such as this wedding.

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.

Trousers are acceptable at both black- and whitetie events if they are in a material that could've been used in a dress worn to the same event. Also acceptable for both men and women is a traditional folk dress.

Of course trousers are acceptable, DeBretts is probably a bit old-fashioned, and that's who I was quoting.

This is their pre-wedding dinner and this post could have been left out. The issue with her past has been rehashed enough. Why not just enjoy the party and all the lovely dresses. Two very much in love people are getting married. Let's keep the trash out of this site for a few hours.

You are correct. This is not a white tie event. At least I did not see a single man wearing white tie tailcoat.

That's a great approach: that trousers are acceptable if in a material that could have been used in a dress worn to the same event.

I think it's wonderful that a Queen has worn trousers to such an event. DeBretts is outdated and some Royal ladies like Silvia are setting new standards. It's about time!

Princess Christina attended :) She is in the photo at this gallery at this site --> Prins Carl Philips och Sofias bröllop | kungligt | Expressen when she left p-w diner and she wore flower pattern "cape"

CP Haakon was at pre-weeding diner. Maybe as Madeleine and Chris he chose car ride :)

The King and The Queen left pre-wedding diner at 2:30, CP Victoria and P Daniel at 3:40.



I saw a gallery of photos - why some guests (2 or 3) take pram with babies at p-w diner? I know that breast-feeding (maybe) but why? Babies should stay at home :) So we may suppose that they take babies to the church? :/
