Sweden's Prince Carl Philip and his bride-to-be Sofia Hellqvistkicked off their royal wedding festivities in Stockholm's harbour on Friday night (June 12) - and what a dazzling pair pair they are! The couple beamed on their last night before becoming husband and wife in an official ceremony tomorrow, welcoming a slew of members of various royal families and invited guests for a private dinner.
Though it's not official quite yet, Sofia looked every bit the princess as she dazzled in a blue, floor-length Zuhair Murad gown that featured an embellished bodice with short sleeves and a knee-high slit. Her future husband looked like a modern-day Prince Charming in a classic black tuxedo as the duo walked arm-in-arm into their celebration.
Following tonight's dinner Carl Philip and Sofia's wedding ceremony will take place tomorrow at 4:30 pm at the royal chapel in Stockholm. Sofia will then officially become a member of the royal family and will receive the title of HRH Princess Sofia, Duchess of Värmland. After the church ceremony, the couple will make their first public appearance as newlyweds, traveling in procession by horse and carriage.
As everyone eagerly awaits to see the 30-year-old brunette beauty's wedding gown, several details about the reception have been released. Along with the Swedish royal family, royals from Belgium, Denmark, Japan, the Netherlands, Greece, Norway, the U.K. and Germany will also be in attendance.
Mathias Dahlgren, the only Scandinavian chef with a prestigious three Michelin star rating, is at the helm of the meal for the big day, while Icona Pop is set to perform. And like most modern couples, there is even an official hashtag for the wedding. Every detail can be followed at #royalwedding2015 and #kungligtbröllop2015.
