Well, it's not technically a tiara - it's just flowers. She chose not to wear a tiara because she wasn't royalty until after the ceremony.

As for the dress, I can take it or leave it. Nothing bad about it, but it's rather plain. What I love about her wedding ensemble is that huge veil!

The cut and fabric of the gown worn by Dagny Haraldsen somehow quite remind me of the wedding dress...

Some details about the bride's look:
at this page about the wedding it says

Quote:
To become Crown Princess of Norway, Miss Sonja Haraldsen designed herself a very simple and simultaneously very elegant wedding dress.
... which royal bride would probably do that nowadays?

Quote:
In line with the tradition of Norwegian royal brides but differently from what was already a tradition in the rest of Europe, Miss Haraldsen did not wear a tiara on her wedding day, having only some discreet flowers on her hair.
So that's why also Ragnhild and Astrid didn't wear a tiara on their wedding days.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Royal Flashback of the Day: King Harald and Queen Sonja's Wedding

I find her wedding gown elegant and beautiful. Although I do not find it memorable and it is not one of my favorites.

Full 2:20 hours video coverage of the wedding by NRK:

Wedding of Crown Prince Harald and Sonja Haraldsen 1968




Also this interview filmed for the couple's silver wedding in 1993 includes lots of video material from the wedding day - including the King Olav's and Crown Prince Harald's wedding speeches:
