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.

Katelynn– methinks she must be referring to the ethnic troubles?? Sweden isn’t #1 like Finland but I’d raise my children in Scandinavia any day (Finland is not really Scandinavia)

@M—- your comment is HYSTERICAL

Spectacular! Just stunning. Good for her. Many happy years :)

The top is beautiful, as is she, but I’m sorry, any 21st-century bridal gown with a ruffle at the bottom is bad news. What was Valentino thinking? The sketch, with an ungathered scalloped lace at the bottom, is more elegant .

Beautiful gown and thank goodness not strapless

Princess Madeleine looked beautiful, and it looks like she had a wonderful wedding, and her dress is gorgeous. But it definitely does not rival the dress the Duchess of Cambridge wore.

It’s alright, but the hemline looks like a dust ruffle on a bedroom in a Victorian-themed bed and breakfast. Kate’s dress is still the winner for me.

The top of the dress is gorgeous, but the bottom looks like a bedskirt/dustruffle. It’s a shame, because it’s not that way in the sketch. She’s a pretty girl, but she’s no Kate, and Kate’s dress was overall much more stunning.
