I think the service was too short but at the same time it was better than William and Kate wedding and all those songs and lectures. Here in Brazil the services are short too (sometimes really short).

Haha in contrast, I will be disappointed if it was not a romantic dress. And I think it fit perfectly my vision of how Madeleine should look like as a bride. Love her make-up, she is so beautiful. Glad she did not wear the Cameo, I do not like the tiara prior to this and I always think Madeleine is more modern for the Cameo.

Don't the British royal brides carry myrtle in their bouquets too? Is this something that one of Queen Victoria's decedents brought to Sweden?

I don't think there was a mishap she has gone to events with no jewelry not even earrings before.

I thought that too. I remember something about a myrtle plant being in one of the palaces and Royal brides have it in their bouquet's.

Don't know about the brittish royal brides, but when queen Ingrid (who was a swedish princess) married king Christian, she brougt part of the myrtle bush with her to Denmark. So danish royal brides also wear a piece of myrtle from the same plant. Don't know where in Sweden it's beeing kept these days.

Loved Lilian's Tiara on Victoria, nice gesture from her, that way their aunt is also at the wedding (including necklace and brooch)!

Maybe we'll see the Pink Tourmaline Tiara at the Nobels? I'm dying to see it.

Ok,they're outside again, posing for pictures. The first complete view of the dress that I saw, don't like the lower part of the dress, reminds me of the dress of Sybilla of Luxembourg, though a lace version and less horrible.

I loved Lilian's jewels on Victoria too, and is Madeleine wearing a bracelet of Lilian (as was said in the Swedish press)?

I wonder why the princess of Monaco actually has the Ocean tiara. She has only worn it once... is it still property of the jeweler perhaps and only used for promotion?

Stockholm really is a beautiful city btw.

Mette-Marit is having fun with prince Daniel, the royalsare coming out to go to the bus / boat. Princess Charlene looks a bit lost.

It seems to get clouded, I hope it won't start raining.

2.) Frankly, and I already know that I'm probably in the minority with this opinion, but I didn't think it was appropriate to bring 1 1/2 y.o. Estelle into Church. The focus should be on the bride, not a toddler who will one day be Queen and have plenty of her own big days!
3.) Why on God's good earth did the TV cameras focus on those violinists at the end of the ceremony and COMPLETELY MISSED Madeleine and Chris bowing to the King??????

ITA!!

Not only did some of those song lyrics verge on inappropriate, but there is nothing more awkward than being sung to! You just sort of stand there and wait it out.

I have never liked having young children at weddings. Estelle behaved fairly well, but what was the point of having a toddler there?
If it truly was Madeleine's wish, I believe she should have thought again!
(But I suspect Victoria and Daniel are doting parents who wanted to bring her; there's a lot of those! And Madeleine decided not to make a fuss in the interest of family peace).

Ah, I just found some info about the myrtle on the royal website.
Brudens klńder - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

Quick translation: Princess Margret, who married Gustav Adolf in 1905, in S:t Georges chapel at Windsor Castle, brought a myrtle bush to Sweden. It grew, and was first kept and nurtured at Sofieros castle. These days it's kept at Ulriksdals castle. A branch from this particular bush has since 1935 been part of the royal brides boquets or in their hair. Princess Ingrid, who married the danish crown prince in 1935, brought a stickling (part of the plant) to her new homeland. Since then the danish royal family maintain the same tradition as the swedish, with myrtle from princess Margrets original plant.

Princess Margret was Victoria's granddaughter, so, am wondering if this is a tradition that Victoria started.

So Madeleine and Chris didn't come to the balcony to meet people, only a few could see them when they came out of the Chapel?
