I'm confused! Could you please explain in what way could the bouquet and train have been "better" and what alternative solutions you would have invoked had you been the dress designer, the florist and, indeed, Victoria herself?

ADDENDUM - just seen CrownPrincess5's explanation above! All I can say is that the more additions to the dress, the more there is not to like!!

Read my reply to Sister M....#1945 I believe.

It's hard to explain but I really shouldn't have said "could've been better....what I meant was I thought it would've been more lavish, for example, diamonds in the bouquet, the train flowing out of the door, blah blah blah.
After realizing who Victoria is (simple, etc) I'm glad she went simply elegant.

I know this it not really related to the wedding but I'm just wondering what's the difference between a "wedding breakfast" and a "reception" they seem almost like the same thing from what I've seen. Well then again I'm judging this mostly based on Diana/Charles' wedding vs Victoria and Daniel's wedding

A reception is usually a dinner/ball that follows the wedding ceremony. A wedding breakfast is either given the morning of the wedding or the morning following the wedding. Normally it's given by the family of the bride. I know back in the late 1800s, in upper-class society, this was quite common.

I thought she had one of the nicest royal bouquets I've seen since Mary's wedding in 2004.
When I saw the flower arrangements in the church I hoped to see a Mette-Marit type of bouquet. I loved Princess Mette-Marit's bouquet and I think it would have been also fit perfectly to the simple but still very elegant wedding arrangements at Princess Victoria's wedding. However, I also think that her bouquet still underlined her character to the best. She was simply a beautiful bride, and to be honest I don't think it would have mattered at all what bouquet or wedding gown or tiara she would have worn. She was just one very happy bride who is deeply in love. Her happiness outshone everything. I can't see anything else on Victoria on her wedding day that was not simply perfect, beautiful and heart-warming.

You explained that well...that's what I was trying to say somewhat.

How come for Diana and Charles they called it a wedding breakfast it happened right after the ceremony. Actually all the British royal weddings I've read about except Peter and Autumn seemed to contain a wedding breakfast right after the ceremony at BP usually.

Is there a special reason why Prince Albert wore a white jacket instead of black as most of the other royal men did?

The Brits may have a different way of describing things. It's always been my experience that a wedding breakfast takes place early in the day, either the day of or the day after, and the reception takes place the afternoon or evening of the wedding.

Ya most likely I'm guessing it's their way of saying "reception"

^Tell me about it! I'm wondering the same except for all the dishes haha. I never can understand these royal dishes they sound so weird. I've still never heard of supreme de volaille Princesse de Galles except for at Diana's wedding That one was chicken breast stuffed with lamb mousse. I've never even heard of lamb mousse let alone what it looks like. I'm guessing they're dishes are ones you don't normally see on a menu...right?

Uploading the wedding right now for you guys. It says it'll be done in 4 hours.

[artic] char is a type of fish found in the north seas. It's well known here in Canada. I am not sure which recipe is "lando char".

Smile Anyone?

Oh, I'm so in love with Victoria and Daniel. The wedding, despite the pomp, was at the same time unpretentious in my humble opinion, just because the couple seem so down-to-earth. The newlyweds looked like they were having fun from beginning to end, like all other commoner couples do. When they were eating the cake it was so cute. Well, everything was so sweet and cute and perfect that I don't know where to begin.

I have a question: what was the name of the beautiful song that was performed for the bride and groom after the ceremony? Was it written especially for the wedding or does it belong to a musical? There are so many posts here that it's been pretty hard for me to find any information. Could anyone please help? I'd appreciate it greatly. I am getting married in September and perhaps I will have it performed at my own wedding as a surprise to my groom (who is Danish by the way). Or maybe have it written on a card (we're going to exchange gifts on the wedding night). I will include the proper credits (whoever wrote it) of course.

Thank you!

The song was "When You Tell The World You're Mine" sung by Björn Skifs & Agnes Carlsson. Not sure who actually wrote it.

I have just listened to Daniel's speech in full with subtitles and am totally in love with it. He has done it wonderfully. His first speech as a Swedish prince and he was great.

Does anyone know when Victoria did the trip to China he is referring in his speech. What a romantic gesture from her to write him letters for every single day they were supposed to be seperated from each other. I was in tears when he said this. I think Prince Daniel will be a wonderful husband to his wife and a wonderful Prince to his country. The Swedes can be very proud of their crown princess couple.
