If Victoria's wedding had, as stated before, over 700 guests and Madeleine's had about 400 - then, looking from the angle of the succession - I think it would be fair if Carl Philip's amount of wedding guests is somewhere between that number.
That depends on what church they choose. If they get married at Gärdslösa church in Öland, the swedish press has told that there is room for about 210 people. When they announce the date and church, it much easier to speculate.

That is true, I hadn't thought of that in the mood of typing my post. We'll have to wait for autumn for the planning to get started. Pity, I'm really curious as to what they will choose .

Just a feeling I have. This kind of threads are about what people think that might happen. Haven't I got the right to express my own thoughts?

The official guests from the government, parliament etc. will be same at Carl Philip's wedding than at Madeleine's wedding. At Madeleine and Chris' wedding most of the guests were their personal friends.

There will always be some invitees with pre-arranged appointments that prevent them from coming. Spanish Royals, eg might decline the invitation because they don't want to be seen at lavish festivities during times of crisis at home. Charlene might want to stay at home with her new little one(s).

But I don't think that the international Royals will collectively snub the couple. They probably have developed a sense of supporting each other in times of criticism. Especially the Skandnavian neighbours from Norway and Denmark will probably turn up in nearly full force.
Someone has to stay in Denmark as regent, but it probably won't be Queen Marghrete who is afaik CP's godmother.
The Greeks and Berleburgs are as closely related as the Danes, so some of them will turn most likely turn up.

All in all I'm looking forward to a very glittering event next summer!

Oops, I have to polish my cristal ball before I can give you a definite answer. But probably the Wessexes, with a small hope that the Cambridges are now ready to enter the international stage. (It's wishful thinking, but I so much want to see a tiara-Kate again)

Poor? It will be a five star weekend with first class accomodation, gourmet food and a lot of fellow royals to meet. I won't pity anyone for attending that wedding.

I've been thinking of a wedding tiara for Sofia for a while now and I have made up my top three. Although I have a feeling Carl Philip will design her her very own tiara just like he did with the engagement ring. But if it will be one of the existing tiaras this are my top three:

1. Connaught Diamond Tiara

Tiara Mania: Connaught Diamond Tiara

2. Laurel Wreath Tiara

Tiara Mania: Laurel Wreath Tiara

3. Modern Fringe Tiara

Tiara Mania: Modern Fringe Tiara


I also have to admit that I have a very secret and very small hope for the cameo tiara because it would look wonderful on her dark hair, but I'm very sure it won't be this tiara on her wedding day. But one can dream, right?

OK, this are my top three. Which are yours?

Princess Lilian left the Laurel Wreath Tiara in her will to crown princess Victoria. If she would have wanted Carl Philip's wife to wear it, she could have left it to Carl Philip.

Carl Philip can ask Victoria to lend it to Sofia if necessary, I don't think she would refuse. At least, I think she could lend it if asked. I have absolutely no knowledge of tiaras and who-can-loan-it-to-whom.

I absolutely would not hope to see the Cameo tiara on Sofia, I don't like it at all. It's too big for me. I thought it looked better on Victoria's head than it did on Queen Silvia's head (just my opinion), but for Sofia I like the Connaught Tiara.
Anyway, it will probably be a totally different tiara and I'm sure it will look lovely on her.

But that also depends on the church they choose and its capacity.
And why would that matter? Isn't a wedding about inviting your personal friends and family? Or is it for show and to show the world that you have more friends then your sibling? I would hope that CP/SH would invite all their friends and family for they are the most important, not titles for display to say *hey look at who came to my wedding*, that is not the reason for a big wedding.
Succession should not have anything to so with it, isn't it about LOVE. Family and Friends!

For the tiara i'd really like her to have a new/modern one; maybe weird, but the swedish royal ladies have such great tiara-skills (and hair!), that for me it's difficult to imagine any of the known swedish collection on Sofia...
If I would *have* to pick one from the collection, it'd be the Baden Fringe
The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Baden Fringe Tiara

but rather something like on this model
http://weddings.usabride.com/wp-cont...ern-hair21.jpg

ETA: they're not gonna ask me, but please please don't wear the nine-prong tiara...i agree with the blogpost it's like antlers

Princess Lilian could have left the Laurel Wreath Tiara to the Bernadotte Collection, but she left it specifically to Victoria.
Carl Philip should not ask Victoria to lend the tiara to Sofia. There are many tiaras Sofia can choose, or Carl Philip can buy a new one for her.
And because Madeleine didn't wear the Cameo Tiara, Sofia should not wear it either.

Because Carl Philip the human being marries, but also Carl Philip the prince. It's an occasion to which all their family and friends must be invited (I never said they mustn't), but he is also part of the House of Bernadotte. I didn't mean that the royal houses invited are more important.
That is my viewpoint. Agree or disagree, but you and I have clashed before and I don't want to go through that again.

That could very well be - Princess Sofia, Duchess of Värmland. Nothing different from Carl Philip's title. Or only Duchess, we'll see.

I don't say he should or should not ask - I said he can, could. The possibility is there. But I don't think he will. Your option of him buying a new one for her sounds very nice. And I agree about the Cameo Tiara - it was not for Madeleine (it wouldn't have suited her) and it should also not be for Sofia. Doesn't suit her either.

Edit: and I only just realized that this is about a Tiara (Laurel Wreath) that I don't particularly like. I like the Connaught from KitKat2006's list. Told you I have no knowledge of tiaras! .

Am I the only one who don't like the cameo tiara? the size, the color,too much!
I didn't like it on Victoria either... the veil and the plain hairdo were hidden by the crown...
