I love this dress... from the bust up.

The waist bothers me. The skirt and bodice just join in a straight seam. I think it would have looked better if the skirt either flowed from the bodice (like Stéphanie's wedding dress) or had a waistband (like Victoria's wedding dress). Maybe if it was just lower? I don't know, but it just bothered me.

About the hem: The person I was watching the wedding with said "Oh look, her dress has a dust ruffle!". At least it wasn't as poufy (and bad) as Sibilla of Luxembourg's!.

I think Madeleine's dress came with what is called a natural waist.

That exactly what I thought also, but I actually think Madeleine's dress is more beautiful. Au contraire of most people here I'm not a big fan of lace, I think it's well balanced.

Just logged on to have a quick glimpse at the bride - thanks for the Daily Mail links. The thing that struck me is that she and Chris look radiant; so lovely to see.

Then I saw a parade of guests; I can safely say that nobody upstaged the bride from what I could see.....

It's nothing special, really !!! You can even buy these kind of dresses in bridal stores from Pronovias and others.

Plus shade of white just doesn't suit her and what does that bordure at the skirts bottom?

It's nice but not overwhleming.
I totally agree. The dress is very odd from the waist, it gives Madeleine a lot of extra kilos. And the top part isn't very beautiful either. All this fuss that it will be a Valentino. I was expecting something truly beautiful and special. But a big plus that she didn't wear the Cameo Tiara.

Did you notice the Queen of Hearts? She was right behind a lady resembling Mary Tyler Moore.

Although the dress isn't the best but I like it and Madeleine looks really good and happy so that makes me forget about the dress
I really like her fringe tiara but I was hoping for something else that she usually wouldn't wear.
I wish her a happy marriage.

There is a lot going on with this dress and thank goodness that there was not the traditional lace veil and Cameo tiara. That would have been truly awful. The plainer veil and tiara works.

I dont like meringue dresses normally but she looks lovely in this - it suits her and really that's all that matters.
