Video: The bride's entrancePrincess Madeleine’s wedding gown was designed by Valentino, and it was a summer confection in delicate lace. The official description, courtesy of the Royal Court:
“The wedding dress is made from pleated silk organza with appliquéd ivory-coloured Chantilly lace. The upper section of the bodice is lace with a deep-cut back. Narrow vertical pleats open up from the accentuated waist, above the wide skirt, which ends with a four-metre-long train. The veil is also silk organza, and is edged with tulle scatted with point d'esprit dots and small Chantilly lace orange blossom. The Princess's shoes are ivory white organdy with woven point d'esprit dots.”In shape – with a wide neckline, short sleeves, and emphasized waist – it reminded me of Crown Princess Victoria’s wedding gown, though the material makes it completely different. The 6 meter long veil extended past the train in the back and made a lovely picture sweeping up the aisle.
Cameo Tiara and the family veil. But Madeleine went her own direction and didn’t following either, in a new veil and the Modern Fringe Tiara accented with sprigs of orange blossom. To her diamond tiara, she added large diamond drop earrings from the Bernadotte collection and a diamond bracelet.
