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.

What appalling conspicuous consumption. No wonder there’s riots in Sweden.

Her train looks like a floating bed. Ridiculous!

European wedding gowns are sooooo elegant. Why do USA brides insist on wearing strapless gowns that never look good on anyone like these fabulous gowns look.

They both have jobs and live in NYC. He’s not taking a royal title. No doubt his wealthy family contributed to the wedding. If the hoopla makes people happy, go for it.

The veil is beautiful, but the bottom of the dress reminds me of the dust ruffle on a bed. If it could have just had scallops on the end, that would be great, but it looks like it was added at the last minute. I think it should have had long sleeves, it would have looked more formal. (Know this is not popular opinion, but hey, everyone is entitled to one.)
