After looking at pictures for awhile now I have decided it was really beautiful dress on Madeleine. I don't love the dress as much as some others but on Madeleine is seems perfect.

When you start to see those fine smoker lines around the mouth area, the brow line starts to drop,and the skin wrinkles..is it worth it?

I disagree with Carlotta. I thought her dress was absolutely gorgeous and she looked stunning in it.

I read one account that her tiara is privately owned. Could it have been wedding gift from Chris? Does anyone know?

In the wedding tiara thread it was mentioned that it is privately owned by Queen Silvia who received it from her husband. it is possible that it might have been gifted to Madeleine but that is unproven so far.

I absolutely loved the dress. It is by far my favorite of Royal Wedding dresses. It was perfect for Madeleine and she looked spectacular from head to toe. The design, the lace, the full skirt with the spectacular train and cathedral veil.....it was just perfection IMO.

I know many of you expected something more out of the dress for Madeleine, but this was her day and her dream. By all accounts, she is a woman who knows her own mind and what looks best on her. This would translate to the biggest day of her life and she would have had complete input into the design of this most important dress.

I also loved the ceremony and the obvious love and affection she and her bridegroom showed to each other. I have to say, the Swedish Royal Family certainly knows how to pull out the stops and put on spectacular weddings. Bravo!

Yes, I'm totally amazed by such an openness of expression and delight Chris had exhibited. It's such a turnaround from his taciturn demeanor and it was wonderful to see his feelings so openly displayed for Madeleine.

His delight was absolutely infectious. He looked happy, and wasn't afraid to show it. As to the dress, the part I disliked was the border on the bottom. Reminded me of a bedskirt.

I'm afraid your competition will extend for miles around for Madeleine's divine bracelet!

It is unfortunate about the dust ruffle/bedskirt, but I'm just floored by the gorgeous veil over that superlong train. What a beautiful effect.

Those definitely over-rode the ruffles. She looked gorgeous.

Yes. He looked so happy. They both did. It was written all over their faces how happy they were. That was my favorite part of the wedding.

It can be difficult for some people to smile openly and naturally on command.
Maybe Chris is one of those types. Or he was nervous. Or both. lol Madeline seems to be the opposite. She seems to smile naturally easily.

Madeline looked stunning. Loved everything about her look- dress, veil, tiara choice, hair, make up, jewelry. It was perfect. I was particularly glad not to see the cameo tiara. I think that is a difficult one to pull off. Madeline's suited her beautifully.

The wedding dress was very pretty and she wore it well. It was very her style and her personality in the lace. The skirt puffing up from the waist was nice even though a few thought she looked bigger, well that was the style and she seemed confident in it.
The veil was beautiful, simple yet really elegant.

Im glad she went for Valentino. It's once in a lifetime and she should pick the designer she wishes for.

We can clearly rule out Chris, because the tiara has been in the RF for more than 20 years. It has been often worn by both the Queen and Madeleine.

Looks like it's mom's gown fron Nobel 2001

I thought her whole look for the wedding was great and I really liked the wedding dress until I spotted that ruffle. Good thing we didn't see the bottom of the dress that much during the coverage.

Someone earlier in the thread made a good point about it not fitting well though. During the carriage ride, it turned into an off-the-shoulder number as can be seen in the photos of them as they're about to board the boat (Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill's royal wedding: best moments).

While I like the idea of her reusing her mother's Nobel dress for the party, it looks too much like a prom/debutante dress to me.

Was the second dress borrowed from her mom? But yes I agree this one is much better than the one she walked down the aisle in, it also looks like it fits.

Yes, I now own sun hats in many colors. And yes, injectables take 10 years off if done right!
