While many girls dream about looking like royalty on their wedding day, Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria, who married her beau Daniel Westling in Stockholm on Saturday, embodied the fantasy, donning three equally stunning looks during the weekend-long celebration. The princess kicked off the wedding reception Friday with the first of two custom Elie Saab Couture looks–a high-necked, cap-sleeve pale-pink cocktail dress embellished with a spray of appliqué clusters, which she paired with flirty gold pumps. Later that evening at a concert gala, she literally dazzled in her second Elie Saab creation–a sweeping, hand-embroidered asymmetrical nude gown adorned with delicate pearls and floral appliqués. Finally, for her wedding at Stockholm Cathedral, the elegant brunette looked fittingly regal, dressed in a custom-made ivory silk off-the-shoulder gown by Swedish designer Par Engsheden, according to InStyle.com, and custom Roger Vivier silk satin pumps with rhinestone buckles. For a finishing touch, the princess topped off the elegant look with the ultimate fairy-tale princess accessory: A towering cameo-bedecked tiara worn by her mother to her 1976 wedding.–Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Gawd, she is so insanely beautiful!

Marja on

The tiara is amazing. It has actually been in their family for already two centuries and was originally a gift from Napoleon to her wife. That certainly counts as something old! ;)

Rene on

What a gorgeous woman she is! Fabulous dress and gowns!!! Stunning!!!

Nana-Ama on

Princess Victoria looked amazing! I love the soft pinks and classy, simple and very regal wedding dress. I watched the wedding online and it was stunningly lovely! Best of all, they seem really in love. I wish them both all the best!

Kate on

I am so proud to be Swedish!!

Kärleken är störst, övervinner allt!

She certainly is beautiful and looked lovely and classic. That said, the wedding gown itself – eh. Little boring for my taste. I’d have like to see a little embellishment. For an unembellished dress, I prefer a more flowing and natural fabric. The firm silk with a full bottom – eh, it needed some embellishment. Some lace, something.

I LOVED THIS WEDDING!! I was on pins & needles during the 14 month engagement & I wasnt disappointed. My youtube list is full of videos from it!

One thing though, I LOVED Victoria’s wedding gown. Alot of people were “complaining” it lacked the glitz of a Princess. I think it totally matched Victoria & it was elegant. Sometimes less is more. I didnt envision her covered in crystal & diamonds from the beginning. All that mattered was getting her man. Victoria is gorgeous & she & Daniel are so it love, it made me cry watching their wedding. Did anyone here Daniel’s speech?! I BAWLED!!

She looks absolutely gorgeous and very classy. Love all the dresses. She’s a beautiful bride.

Rosie on

I don’t think the people cared before about this “princess”.

Swedish princess fashion taking up space here? How odd.

I mean – anyone remember the last time we heard anything about Sweden? Or cared about their “royalty”.

Slowwww news day, PEOPLE? Really…..

J on

she looks great – he’s heinous. he looks like a broke al franken.

Becky on

Beautiful Princess and three beautiful dresses..I think the beauty of the Princess was all of the embellishment the dress needed..

jean on

she has nice classy taste. thought her wedding dress was beautiful.

Denise on

Fabulous dresses, and the wedding dress needs no embellishments that would clash with that beautiful tiara.

Erin on

Wow @Rosie, did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? If you paid attention to humanitarian affairs or the rights of women, you would hear about Sweden often. Or music, seeing as a Swede produces over half of the most popular music played on the radio.

And the Princess’ fashion was lovely. I wish her the best. It doesn’t necessarily mean a “slow news day” to celebrate someone’s happiness.

Allie on

This is how it’s done ladies (and gentlemen) with class, dignity, elegance and a good looking groom doesn’t hurt either. Congratulations to both of them. They seem to be totally in love which is nice to see in this day and age.

I have to say, her weddinggown was actually really, really modern compared to the weddinggowns worn at previous royal weddings. The fabric she wore here seems to be a standard and it is quite “stiff”, but usually they wear long sleeves or at least 3/4 sleeve. Just look at the dresses worn by Mette-Marit of Norway, Sylvia of Sweden (granted that was awhile back), Mary and Marie of Denmark. Of these the only one wearing any embellishment of any kind really was French Marie who wore lace-sleeves. I was surprised she wore shortsleeve considering previous gowns, I kind of thought a royal bride had to cover their arms in church. It was a pleasent surprise though :)
That said, I was in Stockholm on Saturday during the wedding and watched it with thousands of other people there. It was a beautiful ceremony and they look really in love.

Elle on

I think it’s funny that someone asked “Who cares?”. Obviously you know nothing about European politics. And her great-great-great grandmother was Queen Victoria of England :)

Charisse on

Epitome of style and grace. Modern day Grace Kelly and Diana Spencer!

So nice to see a lovely wedding gown with sleeves. It looks classy and beautiful. I am so tired of seeing strapless gowns, they look tacky and cheap. People need to take a look at this wedding and realize you don’t need to show alot of skin to look like a beautiful princess.
