The pre-wedding of the Crown Princess was black tie without tiaras. So I don't think that there will be tiaras at CP&S pre-wedding.

well, i still want her to wear two tiaras, so if no evening event, than she'll have to do a tiara-swap mid-ceremony

But that doesn't tell us if it is still his private property or has been placed in the Bernadotte foundation since 1972 when he inherited it.

To facilitate the tiara discussion, a poll has been added to the Wedding Tiara thread in the 'Royal Jewels' section:

Potential Wedding Tiara for Sofia Hellqvist

Will Sofia's father walk her down the aisle, or will Carl Philip and Sofia follow Swedish tradition and walk down the aisle together?

I'm really interested to see what she chooses! Will she go with the choices of her future sisters-in-law? or will she do the opposite? I would like to see she & CP walk down together. It'd be very sweet, I think.

It will be very interesting to see what she elects to do. I'm hoping they walk in together. Sweden has a long and admirable history of equality between the sexes, and walking into the church together signifies this. I find it extremely disappointing that the sexist custom of fathers giving away their daughters to the husband has found its way there, and at the highest level of society.

eh, I think it's fine when it is truly the woman's choice. I don't think Victoria or Madeleine saw it as their dad handing over ownership. I think they saw it as a last moment with their father before becoming a wife. In that, I can't find fault. But the tradition is very sexist.

But I won't judge a woman for making the choice to do so.

What is the official jewellery company from which Prince Carl Philip will purchase the wedding ring?

I think it a shame that Hollywood has firmly intrenched itself in the minds of half the world and so with a wedding we get the whole daddy and the bride "thing".

However, I would hesitate to call it a "sexist custom" because it is a very special tradition for many brides and their dads and believe me, many of daddy's little girls have been pretty high flying career women. We need to respect the traditions of other and, if this is one tradition you don't like, then quite simply, don't do it yourself.

As previously stated, I personally am hoping for a traditional Swedish Wedding.

I don't find it the least bit sexist. I view it as a lovely tradition that can demonstrate the special bond between fathers and daughters.

My own father died many years ago. I adored him, and I miss him beyond description. To have had him walk me down the aisle at my wedding would have been the dream of a lifetime.


ICAM with MARG...anyone who is offended by it has the wonderful option of simply not doing it.

I like the Jewish custom of father AND mother walking the bride to the altar. As for Sweden, tradition is a good thing, but we are all influenced by global traditions from which we can pick and choose what we want (or don't want).

I guess Queen Silvia will walk with her son down the aisle.

I think that might be right since CG walked both his daughters down the aisle... He might escort Sofia's mum this time...

To me, that always looks so crowded and awkward.
But to each her own.

Don't think so as both Daniel and Chris did not walk with their mothers but with their bestman. So if Carl Philip and Sofia don't do it the swedish way and walk together he will probably go with his bestman and witness.

I wish I could remember where I read it, but I heard that Sofias dad is Danish? Does anyone know if this is true? That may be a factor in the decision if he is.

Sofia's father was born in Denmark, according to the swedish media. I have also read that both his parents were swedish. I haven't seen information when he moved to Sweden, maybe as a child.
