A common question is if the bride can be led to the altar by her father. There is nothing in the Swedish church that prohibits this custom, but it may be worth considering the symbolism of the act.
Originally, it is about that the responsibility of the woman is left over from the father to the man and dates from the time when women were not authoritative. Some priests may for that reason deny that the bride is led by her father to the altar.

However, in neither at Victoria's and Madeleine's weddings the king didn't walk with them to the altar. Daniel was waiting for them at the middle of the church, and Victoria and Daniel walked together to the altar.


At Madeleine's and Chris's wedding the king "gave" Madeleine to Chris closer to the altar.


I have a feeling that Sofia and Carl Philip will walk to the church together.

As you LadyFinn I think they will walk to the altar together, I like that!

When it comes to the Crown Princess and Princess Madeleine I think that the King "handed over" his daughters at places in the church which was suitable. For Victoria just before the stairs to the altar, and for Madeleine before the section with VIPs

I also think the will do it the swedish way and walk together in the Church as the are both from Sweden (but so where Victoria and Daniel).
What i'm wondering is what is the reason that at Victoria's Wedding the King, Carl Philip and and the foreign Heads of State whore the Collar of Serpahim Order and at Madeleine's Wedding the wore the sash like they usually do?

Maybe because Victoria's wedding was seen as a state event, the heir was getting married.
From the website of the court
At Victoria's wedding the king wore the Order of the Seraphim and Order of Vasa on chains. Around his neck The King wore the Order of the Sword, the Swedish military order. The King wore two grand stars; the Swedish Order of the Seraphim's grand star at the top and the grand star of the Order of Vasa underneath.
At Madeleine's wedding the King wore the Order of the Seraphim on a ribbon with grand star and the Order of Vasa with grand star. The other orders he wore similarly to Victoria's wedding.

Hummm. Although I am American, I can see the bride and groom approaching the altar together. In essence, upon engagement the bride has already been given away. Now, I know that not every prospective groom asks permission from the father (or father and mother), we do know there was at least discussion of the union between the families. Otherwise, probably no wedding.

Yes most likely because Victorias wedding was a state event. I can remember the commentators during the broadcast say that it was a wish from the Court (the King) that the Head of States would wear the collar, and that they were happy that so many did. Surprisingly did not the Reign Queens wear theirs.

We would most likely not see the collar at Carl Philips wedding.

I've never seen Margrethe in the Collar of the Seraphim. I know she has it, but has she ever actually worn it?

If I remember right, besides the Finnish President and Carl Philip, it was only the male reigning Kings who wore the Collar for Victoria's wedding. Beatrix & Margrethe (plus Silvia) didn't wear the collar.

What is strange in Beatrix case because at the swedish State Visit to the Netherlands she wore the collar at the State Banquet and not the sash like it is usually done.

very true. She does seem to prefer collars over sashes. It is a bit weird that she chose the sash over the collar, but maybe she didn't feel like wearing the honking thing? lol

ICAM with MARG...anyone who is offended by it has the wonderful option of simply not doing it.
When my dad's younger brother got married 20 years ago, his wife's father had died several years earlier, so her brother-in-law walked her down the aisle and gave her away. (I was the flower girl that day, two months away from my fourth birthday.) Same with their oldest brother in 1981; his wife was given away by her uncle (her dad's brother).

If I ever get married (I'm in no rush to find a man), when the minister asks "Who gives this woman", my dad will say "Her mother and I", because he refuses to do it alone, even though he will be the one walking his firstborn child and only daughter down the aisle. My brothers will probably both walk our mom down the aisle; each taking an arm. My parents have been married for 38 years now; since they were my age, 24 (25 at the end of July), and knew each other for 10 years before that; they were high school sweethearts, and met the first day of ninth grade. My one brother will be 22 five days after Valentine's Day (he has the same birthday as Prince Andrew), and the other one will be 19 two weeks from today.

Maybe the other women except my President thought it was uncomfortable to wear the Collar for at least 10 hours and chose the sash.

that's certainly a plausible explanation. I, myself, prefer sashes over collars (not that I've ever worn them, lol).

No I don't think she has ever worn it, she might prefer the sash. That is correct, but it has hard to see any pattern in who choose to wear the sash or the collar. The Finnish President (Tarja Halonen) wore the collar, while the Iceland President (Dr.Olafur Ragnar Grimson) wore his sash. And the Regin Queens wore their sashes instead. Beatrix could have worn it, she wore the same dress as at the banquet of the State visit, maybe she thought it was inapproraite to wear an identical outfit

I don't think that Queen Silvia has the Collar of the Order of the Seraphim. If so she should have been portrayed or worn it sometime during over the years.

I wonder if the future Duchess of Värmland will receive any Swedish Orders prior to her wedding?

My mistake, you seem to be right. Interesting that CP has the collar, but his mother does not?

The longer I study this stuff, the more I don't understand any of it, lol.

Vickan seems to have it as well, but she also has never worn it.

Haha I understand your feeling completely. It's very confusing and I think we have to deal with a lot of gender discrimination among the awarding of Swedish orders. I think Victoria (and Estelle) has the collar, though never worn it. It is at least the collar that surronds her Coat of Arms, instead of sash.

No she will not. Swedes can't be awarded Swedish orders. She can only be awarded it as a Memeber of the Royal Family, which she becomes with the wedding. It is the same thing as Prince Daniel, before the wedding he didn't wear the Order of the Seraphim, but when they left the church he had put it on.

She will probably be awarded the Order of the Seraphim as well. But who knows, it might be the Grand Cross of the Order of the Polar Star?

It was out of the picture to bestow the Order of the Seraphim to Chris, as it only can be bestowed to heads of states (or equivalent) and members of the Royal Family. Therefor he got the Order of the Polar Star (not the highest level) as the Haga Princesses husbands got the Order of Vasa at their time for marriage.

If the follow the example of Princess Lilian she will get the Order of the Polar Star and later the Order of the Seraphim.
But actually this time it is easier then with Daniel because as bride she will for sure not wear the Order on her Wedding Day.

but Bertil, by the time he married, was "just" the uncle of the King. CP is the son of the King. There's not many in Sweden to compare CP to. Plus, if there's any truth to the rumors that the King favors CP, Sofia will get the Seraphim on the day of her wedding.
