The dress of Vicoria was very plain, it disappointed me. I think I've seen hundreds of commoner brides with similar dresses. But that's not too bad, it may just mean that Victoria is a womam more interested in substance (love for Daniel) than in appearance.
The good news is that the cameo tiara looks good on Victoria! I was so worried she would have chosen it, because I thought it was a bad tiara, but as I said, it looks good on Victoria!
The real royal touch to the wedding were the incredible jewels! I've just seen pics until now, now I'm looking for videos where I can see all those diamonds shining. Can someone help?

Lumutqueen, don't you mean Queen Sonja of Norway? Queen Silva was wearing pink with the Braganza tiara.

LadyGabrielle asked
clarification
Queen Silvia was in pink with the large pink amethyst necklace and the Braganza tiara and the orange pleated dress was worn by Queen Sonja of Norway with the emeralds that she always wears.

All the S's confused me slightly. It's been a long night.

Most of the royals also looked kind of abraded by time - or I am getting old.

And Princess Irene was in absentia.It might be a sign of the times.. that the royals are going through what everybody else is...The newscasters were long on the tooth.. too much commentary.When they began to waltz King Gustav came in and could waltz better than the young couple .......... The wedding cake was quite plain and the undecorated- just many tiers and no embellishments..Maybe the wedding theme was simplicity.

I can think of two outfits that were extraordinarily bad.

I was a total geek and watched the whole wedding online via stv although I could not understand a word. I enjoyed every moment of it ..and now to be cheesy ;" love is the one language that we all understand." Congrats people who gave us Abba, Ikea and Volvo ...

I was just wondering, does it depend on the country or the time of the wedding, as to what the guests wear?
I've been looking at Princess Letizia's wedding and some guests just wore smart suits and not full length ball gowns.
But for weddings such this one or Princess Mary's, everyone wore full length ball gowns.

Somebody asked for a picture of the ring, well here is one: http://gfx2.aftonbladet-cdn.se/multi...n_1219544l.jpg . They are guessing it has 25 brilliant-cut diamonds which have a total weight of about three carats. No official information has been given about the ring.

I am not certain as to protocol these days but I think it has to do with white tie or black tie or whatever else may be written on the formal invitation.

What you have missed is that this is essentially a "family" wedding and every family has it's own traditions.

When you are a Royal Princess and Heir to the Thone you do not hie off to the latest "fave" Hollywood designer for the most expensive overblown wedding meringue dress! 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.

I suppose it depends on the country too, but usually if dress code is not given, the time of the day is what matters. In daytime weddings guests dress more simply (e.g. cocktail dresses, not long necessarily) but if the wedding is an evening wedding, it requires a long dress.

Victoria's wedding guests had received two different kind of invitations, and those who were invited only to church had a code "black tie" and those who went to dinner were "white tie".

BRAVO

The tiara is not my favorite, but matched with the simplicity of the gown, it was totally in good taste. I dislike fufuness and that's why I loved Victoria's gown so much. Just because you're getting married does not mean you have to get carried away with all lace and flowery stuff. As someone else said, the gown is timeless. We will look at this gown 20 years from now and it will not be outdated, whereas the same cannot be said for Diana, as an example.

I also thought Prince Albert of Monoco's girlfriend looked stunning. Some were annoyed she had such a prominent place at the wedding but I thought her better dressed than some of the real life Princesses.

Loved the royal wedding dress too.
Sorry, that green dress on the Queen of DENMARK .. horrible over the top.
