There seems to be quite frequent updates on the royal court website, but nothing yet on Madeleines page. I'm curious about how Chris will be mentioned. He's a member of the royal family now, but not the royal house.

I seriously doubt Mary would have an adjutant. CP Fredriks adjutant is behind him and the other military officer is Swedish.

Tiaras and sashes are not a requirement, they are an option. If they were a requirement guest lists would be a lot smaller.

Looks like these are from the reception. Judging by the last pic looks like dinner is about to be served.

I'm new on that subject, but I thought it meant that if tiaras and sashes are the dress code, you wear them if you have them. If you don't, no one thinks that's strange. Charlene has both tiaras and sashes, so I do think it's strange that she didn't wear them. It seems as she didn't even wear earrings.

Maybe Charlene doesn't like her any of her tiaras and want new ones from Albert?

The bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome, the couple looked happy. After reading posts for a few weeks now about how solemn and grumpy and miserable Chris is, I saw a man beaming with happiness, grinning from ear to ear, emotional when his bride arrived, and waving happily at the crowds. He did not seem angry, grumpy or miserable at all. In fact they both seemed quite happy to be finally man and wife and ready to begin their life together. Best wishes to both of them.

Heaven knows the rest of the current family has done as it pleased.

Well said - I loved the fist pump, the way he looked at her, his smile.

We were way too hard on him - it was nerves or reserve holding him back. I'm so happy for them both (and he looked splendid!)

The (IMO) great tradition of walking in together in the church is becoming more and more rare as our nation is soaked in all things american. I'm not a big fan of that.
Xenobia, I understand from my Swedish relatives that it does happen from time to other that fathers are giving their daughters away though not often. It's standard procedure in Denmark and it hails back to the times when a marriage was more or less a contract between two families and the daughter was 'married off' to start her own family. As such it has nothing to do with Amrican traditions!

Theologically speaking -and between you and me - the custom has no place these days especially in the Nordic countries where cohabitation and having children before marrying are the rule rather than the exception! However I don't see it changing in Denmark in the immediate future and if it makes father and bride happy, well that fine with me!

I also think that we have different views on the church. I don't think that the church's job is to be a nice backdrop for weddings that could be changed whenever the bride(zilla) wants it to. The church has traditions that I respect even though I don't always agree with them. And I'm surprised that the royal family doesn't respect them. So maybe I'll just push harder for civil weddings, even for royalty? Then all of this wouldn't be an issue.
Well, we can certainly agree on having different views.

I'm an atheist. Personally I'm not particular concerned about what the church thinks, that'll leave to my daughter.
Should my daughter choose to marry in a church and wish to have me escort her up the aisle. I'll be there for her, because that's an old and beautiful tradition in my country. What it symbolize to me is my affection and support for my daughter on this very important day.
What I cannot understand are the objections of the Swedish church against a father escorting his daughter up the isle. Especially as the church has been willing to embrace other much more fundamental changes.
There are as far as I can see no religious reasons for objecting to a father escorting his daughter. It's not like the priest has to ask the father for permission or ask the father instead of the bride.
To me it looks more like the church is objecting to a currently politically incorrect parternal tradition - and good grief we can't have that.

I just thought Charlene didn't wear a tiara because of her short hair. I could be wrong though.

Well, it's not a question of life and death, but not many of the things discussed in these forums are...

Between you and me, I agree. I've been to many weddings where the bride and groom lived together for many years and have children together. Having the father give away his daughter in that context seemed quite strange to me. But whatever makes people happy...

I must say the Swedish royal family do seem to have rather cheesy taste in music for their weddings. If you are going to have a church service for your wedding I expect church music not Disneyesque cheese.
I am not a fan of babies, even princess babies, at weddings. Personal taste I know, since I also do not like them on airplanes or department stores or grocery stores. The TV cameras spent much to much time focussing on Estelle and not on the wedding and adult guests.
