There is already a thread where the past and suitability of Sofia Hellqvist has been & is debated ad nauseam. Please keep this thread free from this discussion which must be getting rather tedious and repetative for many members. This thread is about the wedding, not about her past, her suitability or her clothing style.

Posts continuing the debate above will be deleted. Consider this message a notification of that.

Princess Margareta (Margaret of Connaught), wife of Crown Prince Gustaf (VI) Adolf, brought a myrtle bush, which is now at Ulriksdal Palace.
Will Sofia include myrtle in her boquet?

If it's tradition I'm sure she will. I know Princess Madeleine had it in her wedding bouquet. I'm not sure about Princess Victoria or Queen Silvia.

The Queen and the CP both wore some myrtle in their hair. It was at the back, where the veil was fixed. So I'm sure that Sofia will use myrtle of that bush as well.

Wow, you really want to see faults. That look is kind of the basic working royal look. A classic sheet dress.
I believe the expression you were looking for was 'shift dress' (no comment on the sheets aspect). As in Lilly Pulitzer and as in Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, which, if it had been in that tradition I would have agreed that it was basic royal look. A shift dress is never skin tight. It is usually an A line or straight from the shoulder, not nipped and tucked to the skin at all places and short. Never clingy and never with the full zipper up the back.

Could it be that when Hernameispekka used the term Sheet-dress, she ment "Sheath-dress"? That looks very much like what Miss Hellqvist was wearing Sheath dress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia which is worn "close to the body"

Crown princess Victoria had the myrtle on her hair at the back of the Cameo tiara.

Myrtle is ideal for weddings as it has an sweet, aromatic scent (bit like eucalyptus), so it's no surprise it's been popular in Swedish and British royal weddings. If Sofia uses it, she could combine it with a tiara in the same way that Madeleine had a row of little white flowers against her tiara, or weave it in her hair somehow.

Thank you! That was what I meant! As you said, not native speaker!

Also, looking at that link this stands out for me:
First Lady Michelle Obama and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge are both known for their wearing of sheath dresses.

Sooo, yeah Sofia is dressing soooooo unroyal and not fit for a representative of a country......

I agree that the sheath dress Sofia wore at her engagement was classic, basic and totally appropriate to the event.

Had it been worn by another royal lady (and it very well could have, I can see both Letizia and Catherine in that dress) no one would have remarked on it.

Yeah, I think if I of the top of my head list ladies I've seen in similar dresses it would be CP Victoria, Q Letizia, Q Mathilde, P Madeleine, DoCambridge, Q Silvia, Q Maxima, Michelle Obama + every day-show host, news reporter etc.

Is it necessary that the number of pageboys equal the number of flower girls?

No, Victoria had 7 girls and 3 boys. Madeleine had 4 girls and 2 boys.

Does Sofia have 2 sisters? Are they likely to be bridesmaids?

Sofia has an older sister Lina and a younger sister Sarah.
I have seen no news about either sister being a bridesmaid.

I don't believe siblings are bridesmaids in royal weddings...the only one I've seen is Princess Mary's sisters at her wedding to Frederik. Usually it's small children of the family that are bridesmaids and pages. I'd be surprised if she had her sister's as bridesmaids.

Kate sister also.

But it's not very Swedish. People have started doing it, but it's not tradition. But since they do Anglo-engagement and not swedish, and they get walked to the isle (also not very Swedish) it wouldn't be a big leap to have bridesmaids.

I have to admit that I would love to see this wedding as a celebration of Swedish culture and tradition. A best man for him and a maid of honour for her and a beautiful walk up the aisle together.

Haha, contradictory statements. Best man and maid of honor is in no way a Swedish tradition :P
