Let's start with her wedding dress:

Full view ~ Close up

I thought she looked beautiful, and I loved her makeup too. Some have said that her dress is reminiscent of the Duchess of Cambridge's, but personally I don't see that connection.

I was sure earlier if I actually liked the dress...I do like it...the back and train are lovely...I think what I don't like is the bodice...something about the way it's constructed is off to me.

Loved the veil and the rest!

Like it. It does remind me of Catherine's wedding dress a little. Catherine's is still the best royal wedding dress of all time, IMO.

Some more pictures from DM. I thought the gown was simple and nice.

Princess Sofia's Fashion & Style, Part 1: June 2015 -

It's a nice dress. She wears it well. I like it better from the waist up. Something about the skirt doesn't quite work for me.

Her bouquet is beautiful.

The only real similarity between her dress and Kate's that I see are the lace sleeves.

Princess Sofia's dress is now one of my favourites - it was perfect for the occasion with the right proportions in terms of train length and the amount of lace. I like the way the material flowed when she walked and the overall silhouette was lovely. I can see absolutely no similarities whatsoever with anyone else's dress, but if anyone's it would be similar to Princess Madeleine's dress.

I don't see a similarity to Madeleine's. Madeline's was stunning imo. This one is nice, but stunning doesn't come to mind for me. Again something about the seems flat maybe? Can't put my finger on it.

I like Sofia's dress better than Kate's but I like most recent Royal wedding gowns better than the DoC's.

The bustle on the back of Kate's was the best part of what was, for me, a very mundane Royal wedding dress.

Sofia's was simpler, but very pretty. I didn't understand her shoes at all. Beige/flesh toned shoes with a white bridal gown??

I agree that Princess Madeleine was the most stunning Swedish Royal bride ever, even though I liked Victoria's dress better than hers.

After looking at close-up photos, I'm not fond of Sofia's dress. It's nice, but not very interesting - I've seen that particular style many times. I also don't think the quality of the lace was that great. On the plus side, I thought her hair looked fantastic, loved the tiara and veil and thought she looked very happy.

To all comparing the wedding dress of Princess Sofia and The Duchess of Cambridge:

There is another lookalike wedding gown: Princess Anita of Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven's dress was also such a look-a-like.
I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

Very pretty. The Swedes know how to do tiara hair like no one else, and Princess Sofia's was no exception. I actually like top of this better than the DoC. I like the softer, wide neckline as opposed to Kate's very angular one. It's not terribly original, but very pretty. Veil is gorgeous and her tiara was just perfect. Very well done.

I like the dress alot. It's simple and the details of the top are very lovely. The bouquet was really beuatiful. I also really liked the hairdo.

I like it, from what we can see. But with the tiara, it's getting a little prom-y now.

The wedding dress was really beautiful! I didn't expect is so simple but it suited Sofia! My first suspicions of a A- line dress came to me when I saw her dress at the pre-wedding dinner...

Can't see the full gown but it does look like it was beautiful. I wish Sofia had removed the tiara for the after party because as another poster said it screams "Prom Queen"!

But on the other hand...if I owned such a lovely new tiara I'd probably sleep and shower in it!

Everyone keeps saying she copied Kate with her bridal gown, but it's KATE who copied Isabella Rossellini's dress in the first place. Just Google it. Even the bride was surprised.

The only reason people don't discuss it more is because Isabella isn't famous.
