A Royal Wedding

Today was the wedding for the Crown Princess of Sweden, Victoria. The night before the wedding there was a dinner and concert in honor of her and her fiance, and since both of these events concerned European royalty (who are incredibly wealthy), there were plenty of lovely dresses to be seen. Even though this isn't exactly a red carpet event, I thought we still might be able to appreciate these stunning dresses, so I'm going to share some of my favorites.

Unfortunately the site I got the pictures from did not list the designers for any of the dresses, so I can't tell you who designed anything, but they're beautiful nonetheless.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden at the Concert

I'm including two pictures of the dress Crown Princess Victoria wore the the concert this first one shows the wonderful detailing and beading on the dress.

And in this photo you can see the asymmetrical neckline and way that the skirt drapes and falls.

Crown Princess Letizia of Spain at the Concert

I think that red is a really fantastic color on her. I love the way that the bodice is form fitting all the way through the hips where it then gently flares out into the feathery skirt.

Princess Madeleine of Sweden at the Concert

This is Princess Madeleine, the sister of the bride (along with their brother Carl Philip). I love this dress. It's fairly traditional, but the overlay with the geometric pattern makes it stand out.

Crown Princess Máxima of the Netherlands at the Wedding

I absolutely adore this dress. It fits her like a glove, but the lace gives it a sense of elegance, as does that wonderful cool grey color. I also love the neckline and the little sleeves that this dress has.

Princess Madeleine and Queen Silvia of Sweden at the Wedding

This is a picture of the bride's sister and mother at the wedding. And I think they both look stunning. I'm not sure how I feel about the skirt on Princess Madeleine's dress, but the color is amazing on her. And I think the queen looks lovely. Queen Silvia is elegant and regal. She's not dressing too young, but she doesn't look frumpy either.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden at the Wedding

This is Crown Princess Victoria in her wedding dress. It's plain, but really pretty. It has a kind of simple elegance to it that I love. This picture doesn't show it to its best advantage, but she has a lace veil that is absolutely gorgeous.
