I agree! Never liked that bouquet but the dress is awsome, esp how the train "flows" out on the floor.

I didn't get that bouquet. Perhaps it would have been better if it was a different color?

I agree. It is not at all a replica of Mette-Marit's wedding gown. Nor is it as regal. Maybe the sleeves and neckline do pose some resemblence. However this so called "replica" gown looks more suitable for an evening gown as opposed to a formal wedding gown. The way in which it "hugs" the figure definitely adds an air of sex appeal as opposed to formal wedding attire.

This "replica" definitely has a different vibe, a sensual flair, both in the silhouette and the fabric, making it, IMO, less appropriate for a royal wedding (especially when compared to the original). In a different context...I like this dress.

I also wish them all the best and many many years together. For me it was the most transparent weeding i have ever seen!We have had the chance to see a lot of photos from the wedding ceremony, from de wedding party, from the preparation of the bride etc With all this, they shows a lot of respect for the norwegian people. Congratulations!

Do you think Mette-Marit's veil was heavy for her? It looked like a light fabric but it was very long, and it was only attached to her hair so her head was doing all the word.

That is a really good point! I agree that the fabric of the veil looks light but it can't have been too delicate as it would not have survived the pull from her head and the drag along the ground. I doubt it was too heavy as her neck would have hurt! I've not seen any footage of the wedding but none of the photos I have seen indicate it was heavy. Perhaps someone experienced with fabrics might know...

My best dressed were,Sophie,Victoria,Madeleine,and Silvia.

Sonja was interesting but not my favorite.And the worst was Martha Louise,what was she thinking!

Plus I thought Maxima looked boring.

I actually like Prince Haakon without facial hair, and I've always loved Mette-Marit's veil, it looks so transparent, like a cloud!

In this video at 39:07 min. you can see them dancing. The music is not the original one, I don't know which waltz music they chose for their wedding.

Another question about MMs dress, is there a specific name for the kind of train she had? She is one of the few brides who had a fantastic though long train of her dress; it was different from other brides who have it like an attachment hanging off their waist. I believe Kate Middleton also had her train in a similar fashion, giving it that rounded feel.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Readers' Top 10 Wedding Gowns: #4. Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway

Mette Marit's gown was absolutely beautiful. I love the simplicity of the dress. The bodice, the sleeves and the skirt all make it into a beautiful and timeless wedding dress. Her tiara and hairstyle was also great. The only thing I don't like about this look was the bouquet. The heavenly train is also exquisite! Love the cloud like affect of it. The train really keeps the dress from being too simple. Mette Marit's gown was truly unforgettable.
