Exactly. The last thing she should think about is what some complete strangers think about her when it comes to the choice of her wedding dress and all that goes with the wedding.

I agree, I wouldn't want to do it either.

I think the Couple wanted to marry in June so they only had 2 dates to choose as on 06. June ist the swedish national Day which is a Saturday in 2015 and on 20. June is Midsummer which is also a big day in Sweden. So probably the had only the choose between 13. and 27. June or to have the Wedding in another Month

Why would it have to be on a Saturday?

I think the idea of sending Sophie would be great. She could arrive with one of the other royal couple like how Charlène arrived with her and Edward at Madeleine's wedding. I, for one, would like to see her arrive alongside either Frederik and Mary or Victoria and Daniel.

William is an even more important part of Trooping than Edward. That wouldn't happen.

Probably to suit the general public who would like to watch the wedding. I don't know about the rest of the world, but in Denmark, you generally don't get married on Sundays and as for weekdays, a good amount of the guest wouldn't be able to attend on a weekday because they have work.

I know that when Frederik and Mary held the twins's christening on a Thursday there was a lot of commotion about how that was unjust to the public who wouldn't be able to see it to the same extent as if they had scheduled it to be on a Saturday.

Probably because it's a tradition. For those guests with regular jobs it will be much easier if it's a weekend. Most of those citizens who want to watch the wedding on TV or in the streets will have a day of anyway. And probably half of central Stockholm would have to be closed for either security or the expected spectators. It would probably be quite disturbing for part of Stockholm buisiness life if it were a weekday, with roads blocked, etc.

You said it all. And as far as I know, all royal weddings have taken place on a Saturday. Both in and outside Sweden.

Not all. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were married on a Friday. I woke up at four in the morning to watch the wedding.

British royal weddings for the senior royals - the monarch, monarch's children and direct line grandchildren - are weekdays not weekends.

I have deleted several posts for being OT. Let's try not to see offence in each and every comment written about Sofia by other posters.

Posts speculating on which members of various royal families will attend the wedding have been moved to Carl Philip and Sofia's Wedding: Suggestions and Musings.

This thread is to be kept for factual and official information regarding the wedding.

Andrew and Sarah announced their engagement in Feb/March 1986, but the wedding took place the following Wednesday July 23rd, 1986.

One of the most beautiful British Royal weddings ever, imo.

That is why I said "as far as I know". The British weddings are the exception then, the others have taken place on Saturdays. Which, IMO, is the most practical day.

Well, okay then, by my knowledge most weddings are Saturday events. It is at least the day I have gotten used to for these occasions.

Swedish Republican Association:
Since it is not a state event that the head of state's son marries the wedding should have got to be a private matter, but the court has chosen to make it as public as possible.
- The Royal Family does consciously their private events to public publicity stunts. It is a strategy to maintain the political power and the economic benefits they receive through the monarchy. For the glitter and glamour, they can increase their popularity and shift the focus from an important debate on the future form of government, says the president of the Republican Association, Mia Sydow Mölleby.

They're supposed to say that, aren't they, or they wouldn't be a good "republican association"
