Talk about a fairytale wedding dress! Princess Madeleine of Sweden walked down the aisle on Saturday in Stockholm wearing a jaw-dropping Valentino Haute Couture gown for her nuptials to New York banker Christopher O’Neill.

And (dare we say it) the ivory lace-top confection gives Duchess Catherine’s custom Alexander McQueen some royal competition.

With small vertical pleats emphasizing the bride’s waist, the dress featured a full skirt trailed by a statement-making 4-meter long train.

Madeleine, 30, added a 6-meter long veil embroidered with Chantilly lace flowers and of course her tiara, which was adorned with fresh orange blossoms for the lavish ceremony in front of 470 European royals and top New York socialites.

“Working with Princess Madeleine has just been so easy,” designer Valentino Garavani said in a statement. “She is a very lovely girl. She is modern, fun, full of energy and enthusiasm, and she is so beautiful. It has been a pleasure and an honor.”

The couple, who announced their engagement in 2012, met through mutual friends in New York where they both live.

Gorgeous! Prettiest Valentino I’ve ever seen. And Madeline looks so radiant, it’s clear they’re both very happy together.

Wow! I think the dress and bride look amazing.

Wow! So Beautiful.

Pretty dress but not suited for a 30-something mature bride. The bottom ruffle does look like a bed skirt.

Eva on

Madeleine looked radiant and wish her the best. She and her sister the crown princess Victoria are lovely ladies.

Her dress was beautiful and so is she. I was surprised, pleasantly I confess, that she did not wear the cameo tiara her sister and mother both wore on their wedding days. I love her choice, and also liked very much how her tiara rested on small sprays of floral blossoms, which were so beautiful.

Good wedding dress! just little too long :(

I adore the sleeves, but I am biased as I had short sleeves! The rest looks like others have already said, a queen size dust ruffle!

linda on

beautifull train, kate sould have had that length too. agree about the “dust ruffle” however very nice over all. valentino also designed anne hathaway’s wedding dress- absolutely jaw-dropping, gorgeous- check it out!

She’s a stunning bride and the dress is beautiful, but I feel it’s a bit overdone. I hate to admit it but I agree with the dust ruffle statement.
