Yay!

I can't wait to see her tiara. I'm really hoping for the Connaught. I don't always like it, but I bet on her dark hair, with a veil, it would be spectacular.

I am also hoping for the connaught, it looked lovely on princess Christina when she married and I'd love to see it as a wedding tiara on a brunette!

LadyFinn 06-28-2014 03:27 AM

I hope that Carl Philip designs a new tiara for Sofia.

Estelle will be three by then, old enough to be a flowergirl!

That's a great idea, something really modern might suit her quite well...

I am sure it will be a huge party. Estelle will be a lovely flowergirl!

I was just thinking about Estelle last night. I'm pretty sure she will be a bridesmaid, but I can't foresee the (very) near future of course. She would be an adorable bridesmaid. I can just imagine her in a little bridesmaids dress with a poesy of flowers. I wonder who else will be in the bridal party. I don't know anything about the Hellqvists, but perhaps Sofia has some younger cousins or friends with young children who could be bridesmaids and page boys.

I can imagine that the wedding will be 'big', considering that the engagement celebrations were grand for a Prince who is third in line to the throne. It will be interesting to see if it will remain a family and friends affair, or if some foreign royals will be invited too. IIRC there weren't any foreign royals at Madeleine and Chris's wedding. Victoria and Daniel's wedding was an exception, since she is the heiress.

No, there were foreign royals at Madeleine's. Here are some: http://orderofsplendor.blogspot.com/...ncess.html?m=1

I forgot that whilst I was typing my post, although now I remember.

:biggrin:I hope I can be forgiven but the only tiaras I wish Sofia to wear, including on her wedding day, are the Mickey Mouse ones (button tiaras)!

Well, many foreign royals fit into the "frinds and family" category: Queen Margrethe is CP's godmother and cousin of her father. That makes Fred, Joachim, the young Greeks and Berleburgs their second cousins. The relationship with the other royal families is more distant, but at least the Norwegians would be called friends, though I seem to remember that they are pretty close to the Dutch and Luxembourgs as well. Prince Leopold of Bavaria is another godparent of CP, Prince Hubertus of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha is another 2nd cousin.

I forgive you! But I don't think that your wish is realistic. I will be happy if it isn't the Cameo. Or wait, maybe Sofia will choose the Branganza?:cool:

When Princess Lilian lived I really thought the laurel wreath tiara would go to Carl Philip. Thankfully it went to Victoria instead. I would love to see Sofia in the baden fringe tiara. It would work great with her face and dark hair. But i think it's more realistic that it will be worn by Victoria on that day as it is technically hers as long as they follow the will of Queen Victoria. The connaught tiara would be great too.

I hope they will Marty in the Royal Palace Church in Stockholm (where M and C were married. I like it better than the cathedral (Storkyrkan).

CP Victoria can't wear the Baden fringe on that day, because I have already planned for her to wear the Aquamarine kokoshnik tiara.:tongue: So it would be a final confirmation that this tiara is back with the main branch of the family. But according to my most important plan, the Baden fringe has to be worn by Madeleine (for the first time!).

I'm hoping she will wear the Connaught tiara. It has never beeb my favorite tiara out there but I think with her dark hair and petite face, she'd make it look so much better.

Agreed! Especially if they style her hair so it's behind the tiara a bit, and she wears a veil.

I've never loved that tiara either, but for some reason, I think she'd make it look good.

I guess they will marry at 13-06-15 in the Royal Chapel with about 600 guests.

The most part of European royalty will be present and Sofia will surprise us with her wedding dress.

The couple asks for presents donation to Lilla Barnet Fonds and Project Playground.

LadyFinn 06-29-2014 03:13 PM

I think they could get married on Saturday 27th June, a year after the engagement.

XeniaCasaraghi 06-29-2014 03:29 PM

I hope she goes the Mette Marit route with the dress.

Bine221 06-29-2014 04:44 PM

I think, a new Tiara will be acquired for her - and this will be the wedding gift from the King and Queen.
