Danielle, I just found this article on Shinto wedding traditions. It may not be the most accurate since I am unfamiliar with all this, but it does give some interesting information -- including that they may exchange rings, which I didn't know.

Perhaps she isn't allowed to wear a tiara considering she becomes a commoner upon her marriage.

Princess Sayako weds to live 'as member of Kuroda family'
Princes Sayako married Tokyo metropolitan government employee Yoshiki Kuroda on Tuesday after a year of traditional preparations and rites, giving up her imperial family member status to live ''as a member of the Kuroda family.''
The 36-year-old princess, popularly known as Princess Nori, became Sayako Kuroda, with Imperial Household Agency officials submitting a marriage registration document to a Tokyo ward office on behalf of the newlyweds. Imperial family members have no surnames.
She expressed her intention to live a new life as the couple met the press after their wedding ceremony at Tokyo's Imperial Hotel, which has no relationship to the royal family........

She looks cute for this ceremony.. i'm a bit sad because we didn't get to see any festive thing. It's a simply a low-key family ceremony.
I guess it's because she married a commoner, but considering this is the last time we'll see her as a princess, the least they can do is to have a festive ferewell... see her one last time in a tiara or some glitter...
oh well...

btw. Will she still be called 'princess' upon marriage?
