One last attempt to explain my way of thinking... :)

If I was planning to get married next summer (in fact, I am) and had two sisters (I don't) whom I knew wanted and planned for another child, this is what I personally would do:

I would pick 2 or 3 dates in the summer that would work for myself and others involved. I would then wait until around 6 months before summer to set the exact date. By then I would know if anyone of them would be highly pregnant at that time, and if so, I would pick a date that would make it possible for them to attend. Being pregnant or having a toddler at the wedding is of course possible, but if my sister was due around the time of my wedding, there would be a risk of her not being able to attend.

My family is more important to me than having a special date for my wedding. And I think that's the case for CP as well. He is close to his sisters. Of course he would want them to attend.

And yes, I'm sure that the wedding preparations has been on their way for quite a while now. There is a lot of things you can do without setting the exact date for a wedding.

And no, the most important thing here is not to speculate in possible pregnancies, but since I think that might explain why the wedding date might not be official for a while, I had to mention it.

I think, this idea is less far away than some Posters think.

German Magazine Bunte for example nearly had a daily Online post series since 2 weeks about CP Victorias wide clothes, nearly daily belly watch and commenting her cancellation of activities.... the momentarily Peak is "now lay it on the line......" (that you are pregnant , pls see link)......

Victoria von Schweden : Jetzt sag' doch endlich was! | BUNTE.de

So in case this may be true (I cross all my fingers for it) then this REALLY may have an Impact on the wedding date.

And where did Svensk Damtidning get these 35 weeks?
From the paper version of Svensk Damtidning, they are just speculating:
The wedding is probably on Saturday, and since 6th June is the National Day, and 20th June is Midsummer Weekend, the wedding date could be either Saturday 13th June or Saturday 27th June. The Bernadottes have as a tradition to get married in June and Svensk Damtidning claims to know that Carl Philip has said that also he would like to get married in June.
Or if they want to break the traditions, they could get married in August. July isn't an alternative according to Svensk Damtidning, because so many of the royal families in Europe have holiday then.

Pregnant or not the sisters will attend the wedding... I think it's ridiculous to say that they should postponed any baby project for the wedding! Each member has their own life... Cannot see the problem!

From my understanding Royal calendars are done months in advance, i would think they would have to notify these guest so that their wedding could be added to their schedules. Perhaps, this will be a family and personal friends only wedding without royals so no rush to announce a date.

Considering that the King of Sweden is first cousins with the Queen of Denmark (who is Carl Philip's godmother), the Princess of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and the former Queen of Greece, as well as the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, it is extremely unlikely that foreign royals will not be invited.

Not to mention that many of the royals would be considering 'personal friends' of the family as well.

I would be surprised if the wedding date is not announced by December, or the end of the year at the latest.

Most royals will shift around some engagements to make sure that there are at least some representatives to attend. Remember the Cambridge wedding? Wasn't it 3 or 4 months after setting the date? It worked.

Surely at least the closely related and personally befriended royals will pour into Sweden for sure.

Maybe they did know before it was officially announced?
Didn't the Duke of Anhalt state in an interview that there was an engagement happening in a few months and even though the BRF denied it the engagement did happen just around when he said it would?!

I just wanted to say that I don't think PCP and Sofia should arrange their days arround the hypotetical baby plans of his sisters but around only around their own lifes. They shouldn't wait until after it's sure that neither V nor M is pregnant to search and announce a date. That wouldn't be fair to PCP and S. That's all I meant after someone brought up the idea of PCP and S having to wait fpr a date until after it's sure that there are no pregnancies. So please cool down, okay.
I doubt seriously if PCP and his bride even think about when, where, why or even how his sisters are going to have babies so that they can plan their wedding..............I think they will get married when they darn feel like it regardless of babies or not.....and that is their choice and I hope they tell the world soon for it seems like some people are dying, breathing their last breath, crawling the walls, being a fly on the wall, in wanting to know this date with bated breath.............and life goes on even if nobody but the groom and bride know............

Since Madeleines date wasn't announced until the end of December , I guess this one won't be either.

But you have to remember, that Madeleine and Chris got engaged at the end of October. And two months after they were able to tell the wedding date and place. Carl Philip and Sofia got engaged at the end of June. It has gone almost four months and they haven't been able to decide, or they don't want to tell it in public yet. Or maybe Carl Philip tells it tomorrow at the TV-interview.

I sure hope so for then we all can decided what SH will wear, will she show her tattoos, will she wear the cameo tiara, will she have a carriage, who will she invite, where will she marry, where will she live, will she be labeled a princess or duchess, where will she honeymoon, is she preggies, , when is the baby due, is it a girl or boy and the list goes on and on forever with this couple and they are laughing their butts off at us for we know absolutely nothing and never will until they tell us......
Oh I forgot who is designing the wedding gown...............

It has been a while since their engagement was announced, so something should be coming up soon. The months of wedding fever will then officially begin.
