So, you want to look like a "princess"? Well, here you go...

There's a reason royal weddings fascinate more than just bridal bloggers like myself.  They are, on the surface anyways, like fairy tales come to life.  An event where not only the bride wears a tiara, but so do many female guests (and they look perfectly normal in doing so).  A type of wedding where the bride doesn't tell her couturier "I want to look like a princess", because, well, she is one.  This is a wedding that even the pampered girls on WE tv's "Platinum Weddings" can't quite match.  From Queen Victoria's white wedding to Grace Kelly's wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, they serve a major source of inspiration to brides all over the world and throughout history . 

Most recently, Victoria, the Crown Princess of Sweden and heiress apparent married Daniel Westling, her former personal trainer.  They were married on June 19, 2010 in Stockholm.  1200 guests attended the ceremony, including monarchs and statesman from all over Europe making it the largest royal wedding since Princess Diana's televised nuptuals in 1980.  Below are a bunch of photos from the grand affair, so take a look!

The Princess wore the same tiara her mother wore on her wedding day.  It was made of gold, pearls, and cameos.

The bride's gown was gorgeous- classic, elegant, and regal
