If you haven't heard of Swedish designer Par Engsheden you will now.  In one of the purest, most elegant  gowns ever designed, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married her once-upon-a-time personal trainer Daniel Westling at Storkyrkan Church, the Stockholm Cathedral June 19th.  She went for a custom designed off-the-shoulder in silk.  This simple and chic A-line with a 15 foot train is a but preview of looks to come in bridal fashion as these long silk panels have been making a comeback Mostly in the Italian collections).

The  cameo, pearl and gold tiara she wore was one and the same worn by her mother, Queen Silvia, in 1976 when she married King Carl Gustaf of Sweden.

The wedding party was classic European made up almost entirely of children. Looking like something out of Kate Greenaway, they wore white silk organza dresses with ballet slippers; the pages looking nautical and nice in their blue and white sailor suits.

What could be more romantic than the bridal waltz?  Check out the uber-glam in the background--guests in long formals and white tie, the epitome of ultra formal . . .
