About the dress, Madeleine didn't wear the traditional veil the Bernadotte brides have had.

Quite an unattractive dress, Madeleine comes off as more chic than her sister and I'm surprised her dress isn't as nice as Victoria's.

She looks lovely and glowing (even Chris looks happy, which is surprising) but the dress doesn't hold a wow-factor. It's still better than majority of the wedding dresses worn by the royals

The sketch is beautiful, the dress is not. This is usually how this happens though I think Charlene's, Victoria, and Mary's dresses ended up better than the sketches. Stephanie's sketch was a masterpiece her dress was gorgeous. Madeleine's dress really needed the fullness and designs on the skirt.

Interesting that they only stated that the tiara was "privately owned".

The dress is pretty, but not overwhelming to me. However, Princess Madeleine looked absolutely fantastic and radiant on her wedding day, I am really glad that she finally found a good partner who makes her happy.
The delicate long veil, the sparkling tiara & her earrings were absolutely lovely and flattering her charming personality & look! The hair & make-up was perfect too :-)
A very romantic,glamourous wedding and a beautiful bride

The tiara is a gift from king Carl Gustaf to his wife queen Silvia, it doesn't belong to the Bernadotte collection.

Very pretty dress, but nothing really special - I expected something a bit more striking from her. She definitely looks nice, though.

Not a fan of the dress , liked it at first but then saw all the frills as she walked down thesteps at the end, IMO its just all a bit much and too ' Disney Princess' (ironic I know!)

Madeleine looked radiant; her hair, makeup and jewels were just divine and even if she sported a dust ruffle on her gown, it didn't take away how lovely she looked in it. I love the veil over that superlong gorgeous train, especially from the back, but could have done without the flowers below the tiara. All in all, a beautiful bride wearing a wedding dress that may not be a memorable one.

But how happy this couple looks; Chris is just grinning from ear to ear and the photo of them on the balcony where he touches his forehead to her is just sublime. His kissing her hand during the ceremony is just melt-a-licious. Congratulations and best wishes to the happy bride and groom.

Valentino is great designer I love him but there's something in his wedding dresses which I hate.
Marie Chantal, Maxima, Sibilla or Clotilde... - there's something wrong with their dresses. Maybe the cut or wrong gown for wrong woman.

About today's bide dress: wide neckleine made Madeleine bigger in her shoulders. To high belt. I men to near her breast made her big. Better would be V shape for both neckleine and belt.
Flowers are romantic but make the tiara invisible sometimes. They were part of the veil?

But the most important that she like it and feel good in her weeding dress..

Btw. don't you think that Madeleine's wedding gown remind's somehow Sibilla's? Maybe because the low part of the dress.

The dress was pretty, the bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome, both looked happy. What more can you ask for in a wedding?

That too. The design is painfully common.

It is a beautiful dress!!! Not a fan of the bottom, but I'm a sucker for Chantilly lace!

It is a common style for sure!!

Just seen a full view of the dress and it looks like an expensive doiley! Shame. I thought Madeleine would have pulled it out the bag.

She looked stunning, but she would have looked stunning in a potatoe bag. Nice dress, but nothing for the top 10-lists.

The bodice she seemed to have problems with it, is it just me. I am a little disappointed to be honest as I really wanted to love the whole thing but I don't.
