Hello Magazine mentioned about MM's wedding bouquet.

"..The creation, which was designed with input from Mette-Marit herself, was everything a royal bridal gown should be. And it wasn’t just the rich fabric and classic lines that made it the perfect selection - the gown is a nearly exact replica of the dress that Queen Maud, Prince Haakon’s great-grandmother, wore in her wedding to Haakon VII. Following that theme, in place of a traditional bouquet, the bride held a long garland of green leaves woven with purple and white flowers, which was also similar to the bouquet Queen Maud carried on her wedding day."

Sweetpeas are my favorite, but difficult to get in my experience and area. I hate carnations. A death flower, as I recall

The ``death flower'' thing varies from culture to culture. I know that in some European countries, chrysanthemums are associated with death.  In Japan, I guess it would be cherry blossoms.

There's this photo. But don't see how MM's dress and flowers are based on Maud's.

Are you sure it was the only wedding gown she wore and bouquet she carried for her wedding ... As I know some princess from old time changed gown several time for their wedding which celebrated for several days.

I wouldn't know. I only know that this is what I found online and it looked nothing like MM's.

Wow, Maud certainly ``laced,'' as they used to say.  No wonder there was an epidemic of fainting women in that era.

My favorite "royal" wedding bouquet, by far, is that of Carolina of Bourbon Parma. Those pale lavender sweetpeas are absolutely luscious.

Me too!  Between that tiara and that perfect bouquet, she was a gorgeous bride.
