From their official website:
The Bride - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

The bridal bouquet


The Crown Princess´s bridal bouquet consists of a mixture of traditional Swedish summer flowers and more exotic flowers. All the flowers are white, and the bouquet is tied into a free teardrop shape.

The Crown Princess´s bridal bouquet includes the following flowers: lily of the valley, rose, phalaenopsis orchid, peony, clematis, cosmos, wax flower, sweet pea, dicentra formosa, Mårbacka pelargonium, Amazon lily, gardenia, azalea, bleeding heart and the traditional myrtle from Sofiero.(it came to Sweden with Margaret of Connaught , a branch from QVictoria's wedding myrtle bush)

I felt that the simplicity of Victoria's wedding dress was a reflection on the current fashions and the economic climate. Not only was the look timeless, but if she had chosen a dress with heavy embroidery, beading or crystals, it would have cost more. Yes, the King could probably have afforded it, but with all the complaints about the cost of the wedding, it was not the best time to wear a Princess Di-style dress.

I think I've said elsewhere that the Cameo Tiara is not my favorite and yet I still love the history associated with it. And it looked marvelous on Victoria with her dress and veil.

Finally, I think the most amazing sight was the smile on Victoria's face. Given the things she has endured, from health problems to the criticism of her choice of Daniel, I think that the magical part of this wedding is that Victoria and Daniel overcame the odds and made it to the altar.

I loved the picture of Mathilde and Maxima talking around Frederick during the dinner. He looked like he was afraid to get in the way. So funny.

Mathilde, Maxima, Mary and Mette-Marit all look like they truly enjoy each others company and just love to "talk a blue streak" whenever they can.

Letizia, on the other hand, just seems so aloof and, well, "out of it". When I saw the seating arrangement at the long table I could understand why she looked the way she did. She was between two minor Swedish (I think) politicians, and, in her thinking, not worth her notice. "I am royal, you are not" type of thing.

Then I also remembered, from the reading I have done, HOW VERY VERY STRICT AND INCREDIBLY FORMAL THE SPANISH COURT HAS ALWAYS BEEN! I wonder if her attitude is a part of that legacy?

I saw Letizia talking very lively with the minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Bildt.

During the wedding , I think I noticed something greenish at the back of the Cameo tiara and her veil and now I just found a photo. It looks like leaves to me - what do you think? (sorry if it has been posted before , I keep reading the thread, but it is quite large for my poor eyes :flower:)

She might have had small flowers tucked into her hair between the veil and the Cameo Tiara.

I believe it was a sprig of Myrtle. Her mother had some tucked into her hair when she married the King if IRC.

So Victoria should have been less enthusiastic about getting married because people online are going to nitpick everything about her dress to death? That makes no sense. There was nothing wrong with her dress or her bouquet. She looked immaculate and nothing was out of place, ill-fitting or inappropriate.

And, I know, this is CP Victoria's and Prince Daniel's wedding thread, but does Sophie of Wessex some health problems? Varicose veins, maybe?

I'm ripping all the videos on SVT and once I'm done with the compilation of William and Harry's joint trip I'll put the wedding together and post it. If it goes quick enough I could have it up by Monday night.

I'm not "nitpicking" Victoria, but I thought her bouquet and train could've been better too.
No she didn't have lace or diamonds on her wedding dress, but she still looked elegant.
After listening to Daniels speech, I've come to the conclusion that thats just the type of person Victoria is.
She's calm an simple and it reflected on her wedding day.

I'm curious as to what was wrong with her bouquet. Or her train, for that matter. She's a simple girl. Future queen of Sweden, but a simple girl. So her dress/bouquet reflected those tastes. If she had an ostentatious display of wealth going on yesterday, it would have tacky and dare I say, cheap.

I thought she had one of the nicest royal bouquets I've seen since Mary's wedding in 2004.

The wedding cake was huge but very beautiful. We rarely get to see such nice cakes.
Does anyone know anything about their honeymoon?

I shouldn't have said her "bouquet and train could've been better".
What I should've posted is that I thought her train and bouquet would've been more lavish (lots of diamonds, etc).
Like you said, I've realized that Victoria's a simple girl. All in all I thought she looked amazing, but I also thought it would be ostentatious.
I'm glad she's a simple princess....maybe thats why she and Daniel received so much love from the people.
Hope I explained it right.

I know you will hate me, but when Daniel smiles, he reminds me a little bit of "Crazy Frog". And the funny thing ist, he said he is no frog.
But I like him. And he is good looking, even when he smiles
