Maxima had the most beautiful bridal veil I've seen in a long time. That lace trim was so lovely. I haven't seen anything to rival it. Letizia's veil came in a close second but it can't beat Maxima's.
I totally agree, Maxima had the most beautiful veil I've ever seen!

I don't particularly enjoy pop music in weddings, not because it is not traditional, but because a church wedding is after all a religious ceremony where music should fit into the liturgy and serve liturgical purposes. Catholic and Anglican weddings do that very well, coming from different traditions. I don't know a lot about the (Lutheran) Church of Sweden though.

I saw Sofia's back tattoo not yet erased but it didn't flare up my feathers! I just love seeing their widely-smiling faces, Carl Philip's most especially. Sofia is as happy as he is, no doubt, but she shows some sign of nervousness (major, major public appearance on her first day as Princess of Sweden, so it's understandable). Ohhh, I very much love their wedding although I just see it through the very helpful facebook page Carl Philip - fans and friends. I lovevit when they kiss, I can see Carl Philip's smile and his face reads "We're finally married and I'm soooo happy!!!"
I love this photo!

And what happened/spoken in the wedding that made Mette-Marit cry? Is there some moving wedding speech there? I hate that I don't know Svenska :/

Sorry for this rant but I just love, love, love their wedding! God bless the newly married couple named Carl Philip and Sofia!!!
(excuse my excessive exclamation points which I overuse even in normal posts but my use this time went overboard as I can't contain my euphoria for them)
Thank you for that wonderful balcony shot! They looked relieved and happy. I know they're glad it's mostly over and they can look forward to a night of fun and lots of love.

Everyone seem to have enjoyed the wedding and had a good time. I'm sure Carl Philip and Sofia can't wait for the honeymoon. That's where the real fun begins!

I think Sofia's mum would have looked better if she had done something with her hair. It just looked like she had done her everyday blow dry. Some sort of style and decoration would have really set her whole look off.

Stand-out points for me, in no particular order:
the tears of so many;
the beautiful new tiara with emeralds;
the confidence of the King calling upon his subjects for cheers for the bridal couple, which were immediately forthcoming;
Princess Estelle is a darling!;
when I view occasions like this I am reminded that I am a citizen of the world and Royal families are, if you like, archetypes of families everywhere.
I wish their Royal Highnesses every happiness.

I was expecting to see two sets of long tables, not separate round tables. That's a switch for me in my limited experience of royal wedding banquets but it's great!

Yes I noticed that. It really is most unfortunate the people insist on copying Catherine, I mean all they have to do is not wear a white dress with lace, and of course, a veil and tiara, and really, did she have to copy the flowers as well?

All brides have to do is wear anything other than any shade of white . . . black's looking good, but watch out for the lace and flowers are a difinite no, no!

Cool Frederik (who cycled 300 kilometers during the night) took good care of his mother down the stairs, while Mary took good care of Mathilde, who came alone :)

I wish they had time to change their clothes just because I refuse to give up that Victoria wore H&M to the wedding

Estelle was cute as a button as well – who doesn't love her, the little thing.
Queen Margrethe ought to keep an eye on Leonore -- she has a lot of grandsons who might make a good match with her! (100 years ago, they probably would have the marriage contracts ready.)
