Like many other swedes, I think the whole "lead the bride to the altar"-thing is one of the crappiest traditions that we've imported. It's tradition in Sweden that the bride and groom walk down the isle together. When Victoria got married, it was a big debate her about that thing. She lost a lot of popularity here (that she regained, but still) because of it.

I"m sorry people feel it's crappy. For me it was special moment with my dad the first man I ever loved. Taking me to the man I would spend the rest of my life with and the other man that I loved.

Did he walk your brothers down the aisle as well? (If you have any). If not, why?

Myrtle have a longer history than the Victorian one, it was sacred to both Aphrodite, the Greek goddes of love and procreation, and to Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest and a mother-goddess, so it's history as a fertility symbol goes back a very long time. Myrtle was already used in Roman wedding rituals. Myrtus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

When it is simply a tradition that the brides family plans the wedding and the groom waits for the bride at the altar. Basically it is the grand entrance of the bride at least here. In Jewish weddings the grooms parents walk him down the aisle as well as the brides parents walk her down the aisle.

Different countries have different wedding traditions, Anglo-Saxon and American wedding traditions are taking over more and more from the traditional wedding traditions in other countries, and not all people want to see their cultural heritage disappear into the American wedding hegemony.

I've never been to a jewish wedding, just watched the on TV and such, but I think that's a much better tradition. When it's only the bride who is being led down the aisle, the origins of the tradition (that women were inferior to men, and always had a man as their guardian) are hard to ignore. At least to me. I like our scandinavian tradition better, with a wedding ritual that reflects that men and women are equal.

But we're allowed to have different opinions and ideas. To each his own.

True, different opinions make life interesting.

But the woman gets her own back by making the groom wait

I stand corrected...thanks!

Well, let's just say that I will forever hold my peace on this issue if the king escorts Carl Philip down the altar when he marries Sofia Hellqvist...
But on topic: I think it's more okay when the wedding is a mix of two tradition. In this case it was obvious that the whole ceremony was especially designed to reflect both american and swedish traditions. I do like that large parts of the ceremony was in english, since I don't think that Chris can understand or speak swedish.

I absolutely disagree. It's a beautiful and tender tradition for a father to escort his daugther to the alter.
And I'm glad King Gustav didn't bow to the feminists this time.

I know you in Sweden frown upon the tradition of the father escorting the daughter to the alter, fortunately that tradition is in no danger of being abolished here in DK.

Should my own daughter decide to get married in a church I will be beaming like a lighthouse on speed next to her down the aisle.

Unless she doesn't want you to, of course.

Shouldn't it be the Queen who escorts her son down to the altar in this scenario?
