Hi Merry, thanks for the video on the gala concert! It was a well done performance... by a pop band for a King & Queen! I mean I don't know about other gala concerts for royal weddings but this one's unique!

Dear Princess_Beatrix, I wonder if you found any pictures on Queen Silvia for her gala concert yet? If you search IBL Bildbyrå - Royaltyfria bilder, historiska bilder, illustrationsbilder med mera., there're maybe a couple of them. Sorry I'm too lazy to post the picture.

Queen Silvia was a stunning classic beauty, the same simply cannot be said for Victoria.
Her historic veil, first worn by Queen Sofia of Sweden (1836-1913) is still one of the most beautiful veils worn by any Royal bride, IMHO. It was placed and folded on top in such an immaculate way – great backview of it in the pic posted by SilviaCarlGustaf.
Here’s another one - ‘The look of love’ upon returning to the Palace after the ceremony :
http://www.iblbildarkiv.net/fotoweb/Preview.fwx?position=40&archiveType=ImageFolder&sorting=ModifiedTimeAsc&search=drottning%20and%20silvia%20and%20br%F6llop&fileId=B12BF45F323ED927193F61370D92FF4695CD31C4F945B6021919A6E477A7F5F178E204E3302BA1DB04133D389ED33D0340C050A1500E4BEDD223277157C283539DBBB8121F55EFE820A5A371BF169DEF4C809EF6C9FAAA56D1001731A298AC37BF4BAB086720B4A288A38ECE5E8D1C7359D143BF86170BB6&archiveid=5018
And one detail I’ve been wondering about: Apart from being very clear in this following pic that Marc Bohan did NOT design the dress keeping in mind that the bride would have to be able to lift her arm and wave , what on earth is Queen Silvia wearing around her right arm under the sleeve? A rubberband holding a tissue ????

That look at the steps Silvia had on her face was almost identical to the one she threw at K Carl Gustav when they pronouced "Ja" and in an instant she was transformed from a commoner to a Queen. I always believed she did him proud and I am sure no matter the ups and downs he could have never regretted his choice. ( He also was a very handsome man these days)

Great thread!
I am certain that the house of Dior designed the wedding gown. Pre-wedding there were photos of Silvia in Paris shopping and getting gown fittings and Dior was always mentioned.
I think that the style is too plain and the cut of the neckline is unattractive,
but the gown has held up over time and certainly doesn't look dated -- it is a classic design.
I think that the gown was designed very simply so as not to detract from the magnificent veil and tiara.
But, let's face it - Silvia could have worn a flour sack and still looked gorgeous. She is a beautiful woman.

Yes, as mentioned before, the dress is by Marc Bohan for Dior. Apart from the wedding dress, he did most of her evening gowns in her first year as Queen.
While being a bit too plain indeed, the silhouette is actually beautiful - if the bride didn't have too move, that is. Bohan could have done better because the tailoring around the top and the sleeves is quite tight and doesn't allow for getting in and out of a carriage or waving etc. - and this wedding had more 'moving around' scheduled than any other:
Providing beautiful photo opportunities, after the ceremony the couple first went by carriage through the streets of Stockholm to the Royal Barge, then took the Barge back and made the long walk up to the Palace by foot... this program needed a dress to allow for more movement.
Queen Silvia has said it was her who insisted on simplicity as she wanted to put the emphasis on the tiara and the historic veil - the right idea since the elaborate lace would have looked fussy with an elaborate gown, but especially that high round neckline is unflattering.
But indeed, it's so 'classic' that it somehow holds up, plus the heavy silk duchesse fabric is exquisite.

I was curious to see Silivas wedding pictures, for a woman in her 60's she is beautiful. She was a very simple beautiful bride.

Yes, the wedding dress - plus those of the bridesmaids - was on display in an extra room at the 2006 exhibition of Queen Silvia's Nobel gowns at Stockholm Palace.

And I wisited the exhibition and the wedding dress was sooooooo small!! The nobel dresses was dispalyed on an "cat walk" in glass and made a "bigger" impression, but the wedding dress was standing on the floor... the Queen must be a v petit woman, v short... (at least compared to me, Im 170 cm)

Silvia's weddingdress is a masterpiece of style, classicism and haute couture like the one Margerethe of Denmark wore. My personal favorite is Mette-Marit's, classic and stylish.

I am aware that you prefer the "wedding cake" style of Diana, Grace and Mary.

Well, Chacun son goût
