I love the gown but am not sure about the hair and the tiara looks odd to me

The pattern is horrible and something about the dress from the waist down makes her look heavier than she is. I don't know why but this tiara does not look good on her. Maybe it's not made for slicked back hair. I'm remembering how great it looked on Madeleine at Victoria's wedding and it's a huge difference.

It suits to a summer wedding very well. It is pompous but still not expensive. First I wasn't a fan of it but after seeing more photos, it is a great dress and looks good on Victoria.

The dress to which the dress is based.

I know what you mean. The dress took me by surprise and to hear that it was an H&M gown was kind of shocking. But, when you look at the skirt on the model it has far less volume or styling so I guess it was the material itself that took Victoria's interest.

So, the only question really is, did they supply the material for the gown or, did they make a bespoke H&M gown for the Crown Princess? Whichever way, I think we can guarantee there is not another like it. I don't know about anyone else, but I would love to know who designed that gown complete with it's chapel train.

I'm not crazy about this dress; it looks almost like the fabric was run over by a Mac truck with muddy tires. Victoria looks so good in color, and I'd have loved something in the violet range, as so many others chose.

Organic silk and linen? It must feel luscious to wear.

After looking at several bigger photos of the day I think Victoria's dress was lovely. Another one of my top favorites.

I'm not a huge fan of Victoria's dress. I don't particularly like the colour combination or the pattern.

Agree Hereditary Princess! It is a pity because the shape of the dress wasn't bad at all!

It's not my favorite, but of course I always prefer Elie Saab.

I thought the opposite and Victoria was my best dressed Swedish Princess at the wedding and that HRH wore it very well.

a really strange choice by victoria - not very flattering, i was so impressed with what she wore to madeleine's wedding that i thought she'd wow us again. this is just not flattering and, being off-white, a strange choice for a wedding.

One of Victoria's worst looks IMO. The dress was quite dull for a summer wedding, the print wasn't pretty and the fit wasn't flattering. She has so much nicer dresses. A big miss!

That's the perfect analogy to what I thought when I saw it. I thought it looked splattered with mud.

I really didn't like it at all.

I love it, I do. However, I think considering the Spring occasion they could have reworked it with a different color, maybe the gray could have been a blue?

I total agree with you , a diffrent colour would of been so much better than the mud look

Victoria looks lovely in mule. It's a great color for her.
