Lovely bride. Her gown reminds me of Pippa Middleton’s gown.

Is it the first time that Jonas and Chris meet each other or did they meet before?

They have both been at the wedding of Dag and Natalie Werner in August 2011 and at the wedding of Caroline Leksell and Graham Cooke in November 2012. Caroline was today one of the bridesmaids with Madeleine. Jonas and Chris attended both also at Cristina Stenbeck's 40th birthday party last August.

Gustav's brother Didrik sang in the church together with pop star Erik Hassle. And they were accompanied on guitar by Gustav's little brother Sebastian.
As an introductory music, Lussan and Gustav had Pachelbel's beautiful and popular Canon. Michael Bjerkhagen told that he was looking forward to the wedding.
- I've known Lussan for a very long time, and have come to know Gustav over the years.
At the program was also solo songs "Making memories of us" and "Faithful" (and to that, the Gustav's brother has written both text and music!).
Lussan and Gustav walked out with Peter Gabriel's "Book of Love".

The happy couple and their guests were taken to Tullgarn Castle's dock, and from there they went with a boat to the summer house of the Gottlieb family to celebrate at a big party tent.

At 14.15, relatives, friends and royals gathered for a drink in Stockholm city center. They toasted to interior designer Louise "Lussan" Gottlieb, who today marries Gustav Thott.
The guests then traveled in a group of buses to Hölö church in Sörmland where the wedding takes place. The place has a special meaning for Lussan and her family who spent many summers there. Lussan's parents Fredrik and Carola Gottlieb have a summer house in Trosa.
The wedding starts at 16.00. The bridal couple has wanted gifts in the form of money to later buy art. The dinner will take place in beautiful archipelago environment and the evening's entertainer is H&M heir Carl Tham.

Is it usual in Sweden to have white-tie weddings for "common people"?

From the weddings of Victoria's and Daniel's friends which they have attended, at least these were white tie weddings:
- Karl-Johan Persson and Leonie Gillberg
- Andrea Brodin and Niclas Engsäll
- Anders Högberg and Sofia Schörling
- Louise Lundberg and Johan Lindh
- Jacob de Geer and Nicole Kreuger
- Rebecka and Gustaf Wiiburg
- Marcus Josefsson and Sophie de Geer
- Jan Dinkelspiel and Ellen Stendahl
- Gustaf Magnuson and Vicky Andrén
- Joen Bonnier and Jessica Crawley

The boat arrived to Gottlieb's summer place at 19.30.

The king and queen with Lussan's parents Carola and Fredrik Gottlieb. They are close friends, have gone skiing together and Fredrik is a member of the Board of World Scout Foundation and attends with the king at Baden-Powell Fellowship events.

Madeleine and Chris had at least two nannies with them. One came with Chris and Nicolas, and here Elisabeth Zimmermann comes with Leonore and Adrienne.

The bride's gown (and the bridesmaid dresses) were created by Fadi el Khoury.

What an exceptionally good looking group! The bridesmaid dresses are the only thing that didn’t make the mark, the flower girls dresses adorable. It looked very windy

Among the upper crust it seems to be the norm. Besides them I'd say suit or black tie for the men with cocktail dresses or evening dresses for the ladies is the most common.

It is difficult to believe that Fadi el Khoury can design such horrible dresses than the bridesmaid dresses were.

According to Svensk Damtidning, Madeleine held a speech for Lussan at the dinner. In the speech she quoted a piece of the famous song text "Sarah" written by Mauro Scocco.

Lovely photos! Anyone else agrees that Madeleine could have done Leonore’s hair a bit nicer?

Photo gallery, and Svensk Damtidning tells about the dinner and party
The bridal couple had got to borrow the neighbour's land and from then they had set up a giant floating party tent. It was so magnificent that it took several days to build.
The tent was based on a giant, specially built pontoon bridge that stretched from the beach and across to the small islands opposite. The dance floor was huge and bridal couple and their guests could dance under the sky in the early night. In addition, the guest list was unusually beautifully mixed. Both super celebrities and the society!
The food was "absolutely wonderful" tells one of the guests.
Gustav's brothers Didrik and Sebastian performed the music, and in the middle of the wedding dinner awaited a surprise for the new baroness Thott. Gustav Thott held magical speech of love to Lussan before he invited her up to dance. He explained how incredibly much he loves her and what she means to him. And how they build their future together.

I agree that Leonora should have had a little more special hairdo. Most flower girls have flowers in their hair in the uk and the us. Maybe it isn’t the culture to do the same in Sweden.

How far from Stockholm is this summer place?

It's about an hour drive from Stockholm.

I don’t think flowers in the hair are a Swedish tradition but a ribbon, curls, braids would have been nice.
She looks a bit savage to me . I wouldn’t want my kid to go to a wedding like this, nothing to do with being royal or not.
Also another bridal girl had nice white ribbon socks on, Leonore just wears open shoes.

Like I wrote at the previous page, almost all weddings of Victoria and Daniel's friends have been white tie events (they have been the weddings of people who have been Victoria's friends first). And like JR76 wrote at the previous page, white tie dress code is often used at upper class weddings. And if the invitation said White tie and decorations, then they wore them. At Gustaf Magnuson's wedding the royal men wore also orders. At Joen Bonnier and Jessica Crawley's wedding both Victoria and Daniel wore orders. Queen Silvia has even worn a tiara at a wedding in 1970's at a wedding of count Gustaf Trolle-Bonde.
And the wedding of Jonas Bergström and Stephanie af Klercker was a white tie event with decorations, and the bride's mother wore a small tiara, although no members of the royal family attended.

I have the feeling that if Leonor doesn't want to wear ribbons nothing can make her do it. Could've been one of those days where Madeleine was grateful that she got her daughter to put on underwear. Lol

Regarding flowers, ribbons etc for the flower girls I'd say that it's completely up to the bride to chose. In general I'd say flower girls themselves are quite uncommon at Swedish weddings. I've never seen anyone irl and as a gay man in my 40s I've spent many a weekends watching girlfriends get married.

Flower wretches are a common feature during the Swedish summer peaking during Midsummer's Eve so it's definitely a familiar sight in Sweden and many Swedes knows how to make one.
