Thank you!

I actually found some info on it. It was written especially for the wedding:

"When You Tell The World You're Mine" is a po song recorded by Swedish singers Agnes and Björn Skifs. The song was performed at the Wedding of Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, and Daniel Westling on June 19, 2010. It is also the official wedding song, written especially for this occasion and as a gift to the bridal couple. Before the ceremony, the title and everything concerning the song was a secret, and it was not until the actual performance that this information was revealed.

My respect for Princess Madeleine. She was very graceful, beautiful and a perfect little sister. Despite all the rumours surrounding her, she did very well.

Otherwise she was an outstanding and exceptional bride.
Does anybody know what the flowers in the bouquet were?Did they signify anything for Sweden?What kind of flowers were they?. would someone pls calrify .. thanks in advance.

Actually, there was no hem showing inside the train, that was the border of the train. There were also loops sewn to the sides of the end of the train for the courtiers to hold onto, rather than perhaps soil the topside of the train when assisting the Crown Princess. The silk duchess satin I am sure was underlined in silk organza and china silk, and due to the way the train moved and looked very lightweight, I am sure it was contructed in a way that would be easy for her young attendants to lift and to put into the carriages, barge, and limo. I thought the gown was a masterpiece of simplistic elegance and executed impeccably. As a designer myself and having created trains of approximately the same length for my clients, I could see nothing that would betray a gown fitting a future Queen of Sweden.

I thought it might be that too but when I read the menu seemed more like a dinner they had for example chicken breast stuffed with lamb mousse and brill in lobster sauce.

There was a time, not so long ago, when most weddings took place in the morning and hence, the reception afterward was known as a "wedding breakfast"......

I totally agree with you. Gee, I didn't know Anchorage Alaska was overloaded with couture designers.

It is called the Wedding Breakfast because it is the first meal the couple share together as man and wife. The same applied to Grace's wedding and long ago to mine. Daniel and Victoria's was the wedding breakfast indeed[first meal together as husband and wife] but just translated for another continent.as reception

... and it didn't have one wrinkle, either. The gown wore well and it looked comfortable. As well it should, CP Victoria and Prince Daniel had a very long day yesterday.....

I am not from Anchorage...have lived in the lower 48 for most of my life and have designed bridal gowns for celebrities and high society for most of my life.

I said it before and I'll say it again.....I want that song at my wedding with those same singers. I've never heard anything so romantic and beautiful in my life. By the way, I guess I'lll also have to have the choir and orchestra, too! You are all invited, or course! There is just the small matter of finding a groom...

Someone already explained it, either in this thread or another one about the wedding. You could also go to the Royal Court's website and go into the wedding section to read about it.

The Duchess satin was not top notch.Masterpiece ? no - it wasn't Grace Kelly's gown. Victoria's gown was exceptional.. agree to disagree.....simplicity and simplified practice are two different things and it is always good to be able to discern one from the other... the bride was herself in this case the masterpiece and magnum opus and that was better than everything else I have ever seen at anybody's wedding.As a couture expert myself I think the execution of the gown was modern enough.Considering older techniques on wedding gowns and couture have been lost and revised with more facile manners of construction& with the passing generations that took those secrets of construction with them.Like most of the royal ladies arrived in sleeveless gowns because sleeves are difficult to attach properly to any gown nowadays and we hardly ever see them anymore with buttoned sleeves and actual buttonholes etc.
What of the bouquet ? Does it signify anything because I found it a rather symbolic piece for some reason . Does anybody know?

I don't think more lining would have been desired as more creates bulk and bulk creates lines and distortion. I think considering that the train was probably around 17ft long, pretty heavy enough...silk duchess satin is a heavy enough and with the internal support of the silk organza which prevents wrinkles and adds enough body to the train without being heavy, it was enough.

Ok what was that bouquet?
Just wrote about it.

As I stated regarding the train, the silk organza and china silk, and perhaps a lighter weight silk satin were more than likely used to line/underline the train. I don't think the bride, being as considerate as many say she is, would like the 17ft or so of train to drag and weigh more with more underlining, lining, and interfacing in addition to the veil she was also carrying behind her, for her attendants to manuever around the city. Silk organza does not crinkle, not sure what type silk organza you have had, but the weight I use is a firm weight and has been used by couturiers for generations. It has been used to prevent wrinkles, creases and is known as the 'hanger' that most fine evening fabrics rely on for support.

A bit more personality - Victoria & Daniel who have to find their own way - would have been good.
I also found it too much that Victoria chose the same date; the same tiara; the same veil; the same tight-to-the-head hairdo; a similarly plain, unadorned dress; and similar flower girl dresses... and then took the same carriage ride and same boat ride as her mother and father. I like tradition but I couldn't find "Victoria" in the wedding.
