Hmm, apart from normal heightened security measures which are stepped up to ensure the safety of both royal and VIP Guests and, not wanting to dampen spirits, but is there not a heightened state of security generally in Europe following the terrorist attacks.

Will that not ramp the type and scale of security needed to be in place? Regardless of whether this was a much scaled back wedding or one like Madeleine's, would not the nature of the guests still create the need for an incredibly heightened state of security?

And, regardless of the somewhat dampening comments about the bride, will that really affect the decision of the people of Sweden as to whether they go and watch the proceedings and thus be yet another contributing factor to heightened security?

And, just as a thought, will not such a wedding generate a greater than usual number of tourists to come and see and soak up the atmosphere?

We live in changing and challenging times. What are we willing to give up for the illusion of total security? Security that, of course, costs money.

The invitations at the website of Svensk Damtidning

Maybe Carl Philip has been designing them too, since they are different than Victoria's and Madeleine's, the couples silhouette has been used in them.
The dress code is the same as at previous weddings.

The invitations looks quite nice and the bow is also sweet. I hope we get to see better photos.
Orange is a great colour to use for a wedding, I wonder if this theme will continue with flowers, bridesmaids etc with orange/peach/cream combinations.

I guess this will be the colour theme for the wedding. A really good choice, and that distinguish them from the two previous weddings, Victoria and Daniel's seraphim blue, white and pink, and Madeleine and Chris pistage green.

I guess a special website will be released soon, and then we will see if orange is the official colour.

Are there any pictures of her sisters I could see. Are they married with families?

I think a lovely wedding dress would be CREAM DUCHESS SATIN with APRICOT ROSES for her flowers.

Sofia (dark hair) with her elder sister Lina (in the middle) and her younger sister Sara. I believe none of them are married. See picture.

I can not see it well enough if Carl Philip has used reliëf too. Hand-crafted paper with the arms or monogram in reliëf is the most stylish possible. I can not see if that orange ribbon is a real ribbon or printed on the envelope. Looks nice for a real Orange wedding (in the Netherlands) but it is maybe a bit off-key for a royal wedding. I like it that the invitation is in name of His Majesty The King.

Carl Philip and Sofia have signed the consideration of impediments to marriage. In Sweden it is required to be done at least two weeks before the wedding to get a registered marriage.
Sofia signed that she "Has never married / registered a partnership." Even Prince Carl Philip attest to this, and both also subscribe to:
"As far as I know I and my future husband / wife are not full siblings or related to each other in the ascending or descending line. We are not half-siblings."
The certificate is signed on 14 April by both Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist.

Sofia had a hen party yesterday. At 14 o'clock checked dozens of friends into an exclusive banquet and conference center by Lake Mälaren in Stockholm. Sofia arrived just after 15.00.
There were Sofia Hellqvist's sisters Lina, 33, and Sara Hellqvist, 26 and makeup artist William Värnild. And crown princess Victoria, who chose to go for a long walk when the others jumped in the hot tub on the patio at 16.00. After nearly two hours of relaxing bath the guests were treated to Lebanese food from a catering company. Victoria had already just arrived from her walk.

The reporter or person who took the photos and video was at a quite good place.

EDIT: Aftonbladet put the photos to Plus, so you have to pay for them.
Here is the video

Expressen tells that today after the breakfast Victoria was one of the firsts to leave, Sofia and her sisters were the last to leave in the afternoon.

Quite a show. At least none of them were shy, and Victoria, despite the walk, was a good sport, looks like. I have the sense it was rather nippy. Brrrr!

First time for a very long time that Stefano Catenacci is not responsible for a Dinner at the Royal Palace. Catenacci was responsible for the dinner at Crown Princess Couples wedding and was appointed Court Chef (hovtraktör).

Will the banns be televised? Have any of the previous banns been?

No, they have not been televised, only a few photos of the royal family arriving to the chapel have been released.

Johan T Lindwall writes in Expressen, that Carl Philip was taken yesterday to his bachelor party in Athens. It happened when the king and queen were waving to the crowd at the Palace window. Several of his friends from the boarding school Lundsberg, buddies from the military period and earlier bodyguards wanted to surprise the prince. After meetings with the King earlier this spring, they concluded that there were only a few weekends to choose from and that the ultimate was just Walburgis weekend and this for several reasons, but the primary: King's birthday.
Sofia had discreetly packed a bag to Carl Philip for the trip to the Mediterranean. The bag was now in one of the adjoining rooms to Halls of the Orders of Chivalry and birthday lunch that would follow. Carl Philip had not a clue, but the rest of the family and a few selected people at the court staff and security police knew what would happen: The bachelor party.
Arlanda Airport VIP staff knew that the Prince would be on the flight and everything was prepared so that he could be brought on board directly from the VIP service. He would simply avoid the usual security checks and so they would save precious time. When he came to Arlanda all friends were waiting and just minutes before the departure they went on board. Carl Philip was congratulated by the staff and several flight attendants expressed surprise that he was so far back in the plane in the economics department at 18B.
- He was very surprised, said one of the friends of one of the flight attendants.
- We are 20 men to have fun.
When serving began aboard Carl Philip was obvious VIP guest. They drank beer and Carl Philip drank several shots of Jägermeister. Huge cheers erupted when the flight attendants gave a sealed bag with several bottles of wine and enlightened the prince:
- There is also a pair of rubber gloves with the bag.
Lindwall also writes about the king's birthday "The only thing missing was Chris O'Neill and Carl Philip thought he was away on a business trip, but where he was in fact would later become one more surprise for Carl Philip".

Aftonbladet tells, that Carl Philip and his friends landed to Greece and at 22.00 the bachelor party started with a souvlaki dinner at a traditional Greek restaurant near their hotel. The luxury hotel they have chosen to stay is located in the most exclusive part of the Athenian Riviera, high on a hill right by the sea. With Carl Philip are at least hockey player Niklas Anger and Carl Philip's old friend Christoffer Cederlund.
