Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrivs to Sweden

Crown Princess Mary was not able to attend the pre-wedding dinner last night, that's why she arrived to Sweden on the wedding day. A wedding is always great to attend and a royal wedding is even better. All the wonderful dresses, huge tiaras, glam and glitter not to forget the bride. There's always great excitement attracted to a royal wedding. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who have been looking forward to this day. Only three years ago Princess Madeleine's sister Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married Daniel Westling, now Prince Daniel. Mary was the absolute best dressed at her wedding in a wonderful and romantic what's said is a Jesper Høvring creation. Such beauty. What no one knew was, at that time she was pregnant with the twins. So I'm really looking forward to this year's wedding - what will we see, a new dress or an old one? Which accessories will she wear? What tiara will she be wearing? I have so many questions. Well, we just have to wait and see till the wedding begins. 

At the arrival to her hotel she also wore a pretty nice outfit which I immediately fell in love with! Her hair was casual, ready for the wedding later today. She wore a white Hugo Boss peplum and brand new colourful Baum und Pferdgarten trousers. The black wedges could be some from L.K. Bennett.  Matching to the trousers she carried a white Prada handbag. Then we have the Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses left. A pretty easy outfit to try yourself - because it works with any colour peplum and any colour trousers!

The church ceremony

Finally the times up and Princess Madeleine and Christopher O'Neil are married, husband and wife. Madeleine was so beautiful in her Valentino creation of a wedding gown! Meters of stunning lace work. It was a magnificent sight when she arrived to the church. I'm really impressed by the wedding gown, it much have taken hours and hours to make it. Very feminine with a classic touch. Madeleine's dress is the complete opposite of Mary's wedding gown which was pretty simple in an ivory colour. I really hope you got the chance to see some of the wedding. For me it has become an tradition to follow such engagements, luckily most of this are broadcasted in Denmark just like this wonderful royal wedding in Sweden. This must be the wedding of the year 2013! Everyone were gathered to celebrated the couple with the wedding; royals from all over the world.

Most of you might remember the wedding of Victoria and Daniel, a summer wedding to remember such as this one will be to me. The most wonderful and stunning dresses were worn of course Mary was one of them, at both weddings.

I really admire Mary's wedding guest look, all the best in one place! I am not sure where to start... Many guest were dressed in light pastel colours like the norwegian Crown Princess Mette-Marit in a blue lace gown and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal from Greece in a creamy white gown. These are only two of them but Mary is known for choosing something else and different. This time it was a gorgeous bright red Collette Dinnigan resort 2013 gown. It features a floor-length cut and a slim shape which shows her figure perfectly. According to Billed Bladet the raspberry cape is made by Birgit Hallstein to match the dress, what's hard to see is the beautiful sleeves.

Lately she has been wearing metallic accessories - by the way it's the highest fashion this year with metallic accessories - it was also the case at the wedding. She wore silver Prada pumps featuring a dusty pink sole, and a silver clutch my guess is that Judith Leiber might be the designer of the clutch. The earrings is made by Marianne Dulong. Something new and exciting are the two cuff's on each wrist. With the help from Pernille we know know that they are from Annikat and are called Wing Cuff. A great detail that she's wearing one on each wrist! Then we only have the tiara left, I was sure they would be wearing her wedding tiara but not she chose the Midnight Tiara created by Charlotte Lynggaard. An overwhelming piece of work.

Notice that she's not wearing the Order of the Elephant with the blue ribbon but the Order of the Serahim which is the Swedish order which is the same Order Frederik is wearing. This order is worn, as most other orders, from right to left. Read more about the history here.
