Aw, they're cute. I'll even give her a pass on the one-shoulder dress. (I'm sure she'd be just thrilled to know that! )

Time to dish on the concert gowns:
Victoria looks gorgeous, if a little too Charlize-Theron-gives-out-Best-Cinematography-at-the-Oscars. She looks relaxed and happy and thats a good thing for a bride.
Mette-Marit, oh dear, cotton candy pink? Love the Carole Lombard hair, though.
Mary looks fab, second only to Victoria in uber-glam.
Mathilde in hot bubble gum pink! Black sash cuts her in 1/2. When did hubby get so grey?
Maxima went the Scarlett O'Hara route and made her dress out of the drapes in the Het Loo rumpus room.
I can't look at a pic of the Infantas without thinking of the line about them in "Ab Fab"
Sweden has sort of a foxy Prime Minister and he's got a lovely wife, great color on her.
Margrethe and Beatrix, you go ladies, you look like the queens that you are! Work! *snap snap snap*

I actually like The Cameo Tiara, as it's just so very different and I also adore Cameos. I have a very small collection of them, but would love to be able to add that piece, along w/the matching necklace to my personal Jewelry Box any day and any time.
My personal favourite of the Tiaras that Victoria's been seen wearing over the years though is the Amethyst Tiara. Both the colour and the design just really suit her IMO.
Tonight's the Gala Concert, so there should be some great pictures out and about there online right now from that. It was black tie IIRC.
Only a few more hours!!! I can't wait!!!
Madeleine wore white....or maybe it was very soft pink......a soft grey? The pix are ambiguous re: color but she looks absolutely stunning.
She was on the arm of her brother, poor thing, this event must be rough on her. Thank goodness she has that handsome bro to lean on.
So much pretty. The bride looks so happy in all her pictures. And the crown prince of Sweden is movie-star handsome in that photo that Fergus linked to.
I thought I'd sleep in Saturday am, but I just might have to get up to watch this event.
You just knew there'd be one rather....Interestingly looking...dress from the weekend.

edited to add...There was a private party/Dinner Dance held on Thursday night just for the younger generation of Royals and personal friends and family of Victoria and Daniel. At one point, Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Princess Martha-Louise of Norway and her husband Ari Behn sang to Victoria and Daniel as part of their Wedding Gift to the two of them.
Now that I would have loved to have seen. Gifts from the Heart are always the best of gifts regardless the occasion after all.

Loved the part of the video where all those kings and queens were getting off what looked like a city bus. It makes sense, as a mode of transportation for a lot of people, but when you think of royalty, one usually thinks of shiny cars with darkly tinted windows... or horse-drawn carriages. Not buses.
BTW, I thought Letizia was stunning. I usually give that prize to Mary, but the color of the gown didn't win me over. (the nude colored one for the concert. The white gown she wore earlier was gorgeous)
Good morning, Stockholm!
The schlep into church begins......
The Spanish Infantas, one in pink with bolero jacket, the other in the seafoam green Grecian inpsired.
Can't tell them apart, though.
I honestly believe there was a giant cosmic mix-up somewhere, and I was meant to be born a princess.
Wow. How long will it take to load the church. I had no idea there were so many royals in the world.
The old royal ladies look so camp in their tiaras. But wow, the young female royals are pretty amazing looking.
