I don't find him attractive in any sense of the word, but that is my personal taste and has nothing to do with what others may see. To be honest....I kind of found him to be rather cold and arrogant. I struggled to find anything good to say so I thought best not to say anything.

That being said.....after seeing the emotion, happiness and joy on his face throughout the ceremony and how proud he was to show off his new bride....I am sold. He struggled to hold back his tears when he first saw her walking towards him and when hearing "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" sung. He again broke down when the Minister spoke to them about the importance of the little things in a relationship that make a marriage. He couldn't contain himself or hold back his affection each time he looked at her. I had tears in my eyes throughout the ceremony, not because it was a wedding....but because the beauty of the feelings displayed. THAT was pure naked emotion and showed me all that I missed from pictures and brief videos of this couple.

I am happy for Madeleine. I am happy for the Swedish Royal Family. I am happy to see that two daughters married men who on the outside may not be what we might view as the "right" kind of men to marry important royal Princesses, but on the inside are everything these Princesses need. :)
I have to agree. I had a lot of opinions of Chris before the wedding, many not very favorable, but after watching the whole thing on video last night, him tearing up so many times made me tear up as well. Very emotional and for me unexpected, but I loved seeing it.

i think he looks fantastic

but he is certainly someone that likes to stay fit.
he has mentioned in a interview a while ago, that he feels like he is in the best shape since his Frogman days

That seems an odd choice to me; wedding songs are usually more romantic.

Count me in. I guess it takes a lot for Chris to smile and show joy, and he had a good reason to on Saturday! I got the impression Madeleine is like an emotional anchor for him, which is good for a relationship.

It was the rehearsal dinner where all the ladies shined. There were some stunning and not so stunning dresses. Mrs O'Neil was sort of over the top in that hot pink w shoulder bow. And the spanish lady in the black see thru was a bit much and more suited to a Hollywood red carpet. I agree with everyone Charlene wore no jewels whatsoever (not even her wedding/engagement ring). You would have thought Caroline Hanover would have lent her a tiara since she really has no jewels of her own and usually borrowers them from Cartier etc. Maybe Albert thought she would take a powder if she had the royal jewels. The wedding was lovely and Princess Madeline looked like a fairy princess in Valentino. The fugliest dress was worn by Princess Mary who could not decide if she were going to wear a lace table cloth from Wal-mart or a matching bedroom curtain. Made her look Old. The Greek ladies are always put together. As for the guest from the white thigh high slit (worn by Angelina wanna be) to the proper attire worn by Sophie Wessex....it was a success.

Why didnt Willem Alexander and Maxima attend this wedding? I thought they were close to all this "young gang"..Maybe things change after accession. Who represented Dutch Royal Family?

The best of the wedding was watching the emotions play across the groom's face!

The cutest part of the wedding was baby Estelle in the background playing with her mother's while the couple said their vows! You can see her between their faces.

The King and Queen could not attend because they are now King and Queen. No one attended from the Dutch Royal Family.

Matter of fact, when I saw the pic of him in his little uniform, my first thought was:

"Gee, Fred is starting to look a wee tad bit LONG in the tooth!"

The oddest of all was hearing the crooning of "the first time ever I lay with you" from the song "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" during the church ceremony. I can respect the fact that Sweden is a country more liberal than most, but that was a bit.....much.

For me, it was the one cringe worthy moment during an otherwise lovely ceremony.
