All of the official photos of the wedding and guests show royalty and official visitors. Were any of Victoria and Daniel's friends invited to the wedding ceremony and the wedding dinner? I know they were included in parties leading up to the wedding, but I am puzzled why none of them were included in the formal wedding and dinner. If they were there, they were not included in the hundreds of pictures that I viewed.

Medals

I see that some posters have asked about the medals that the
children were wearing after the wedding and about the one worn
by Daniels Mother and Sister.

It was also asked about Daniel's father's three medals that he wore.

Does anyone know what they are.

I noticed that Daniel had his own after the wedding but right before he
left the church.

Daniel was conferred with the Order of the Polar Star in accordance with his wedding to Victoria and before emerging from the Storkyrkan, he had his sash and star on. As for what the medals were that his sister, mother and father were wearing....I don't know. Perhaps one of our many Swedish royal watchers can fill that in.

Love this picture! Christian is adorable and looks so much like Mary!
He looks like he's having a splendid time with his mom and dad! I think one of the best parts of this wedding was seeing Victoria's god-children as attendants in her bridal party.

Neither do you dive into the family jewels vault for the bigest and best sparkly jewels and heap them on just to prove you are royal!

No. You go to one of your country's best designers and get "a gown designed by Pär Engsheden, made of pearl white silk duchesse, and described in news releases as short-sleeved with an external collar. Regal and elegant. Tres chic!

You then lovingly adorn your head with the Cameo Tiara, “Once owned by Napoleon’s Empress Josephine, it came to the Swedish royal family when Josephine’s granddaughter Josefina married the future King Oscar I in 1823. The pearl-covered diadem, heightened by seven cameos depicting mythological figures, has become traditional bridal headgear in the House of Bernadotte. Victoria’s mother, Queen Silvia, wore it on her own wedding day on June 19, 1976.”

Then you affix a vintage lace veil, also worn by your mother on her wedding day to the tiara and you have a real Princess! Beautiful, elegant, glowing with love. A born and bred Royal Princess who gets to marry the man she loves and is made a Prince by his marriage, and who also, upon the occasion of his marriage, became a Knight of the Order of the Seraphim, the Order of which he wore on leaving the Cathedral.
Beautifully stated!

I think Sweden is blessed to have these two wonderful people.

These two so much remind me of another royal romance where you KNEW the two of them were so in love... Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Perfect Post !! The entire wedding was sheer bliss......the TOTAL LOVE these two have for each other was just so palpable....and says a lot when you have to go all the way to Albert and Victoria to find a similar situation. I also don't think I have seen a more beautiful bride on the day. She was perfection in every single way. Sweden should be very very proud to have these two wonderful people represent them.

Of all the crown princesses dresses of recent years, Victoria's dress reminded me the most of Maxima's dress: Simple and regal.

I thought the same thing. And of course I had to go look at WA and Maxima's wedding thread lol. I just really loved how simple Victoria's, and Maxima's, dress was. That way everyone could focus on how happy and in love these two lovely brides were on their respective wedding days. Geez I just can't get over how lovely and emotional this wedding was. CP Victoria and Prince Daniel (boy that was fun to type lol) seem so genuine and accessible, so down-to-earth.

Well ... In the best of my knowledge ALL royals events/ceremonies that Caroline attended since 1998/1999 was as an ESCORT/Princess consort of Hannover.

Since the weddings of Crown Princes to Queen Mother's funeral & others Royals Events, she was as the Princess of Hannover NOT scort of Crown Prince Albert of Monaco.

I remember the only time that Caroline was a companion of Albert in a Royal Event was the anniversary of King of Sweden.

No. He was not. He received the Order of The Seraphim.

Thanks for that info, I believe someone mentioned that some were given
a "wedding medal". But I was curious also about Daniel's father having
on his chest three medals.

The little blond girl next to Amalia is Vera Blom, Daniel's niece (and now Victoria's). The tallest girl next to Victoria is I believe Hedvig Blom, Vera's sister.

Forgive me if this has been previously answered and I missed it. But I noticed a number of women wearing the same dress during the coverage of the wedding - deep midnight blue velvet with silver braiding on the puff sleeves. Can anyone explain who these women were and what their significance was? For instance, one of them followed Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederick along the carpet to the cathedral before the wedding. I saw several others at various points during the day and evening.

It was answered by somebody else, and I shall repeat it because I didn't know either, that the women in question are ladies in waiting for the Swedish Court and that outfit is court dress.

Good question. I want to know as well. It was really beautiful and if I could speak Swedish, I would have been singing along with the choir. Since I couldn't, I just hummed....
