Swedish Princess' Wedding Weekend Underway At Pre-Nupitals Dinner (PHOTOS)

It's royal wedding season!

Princess Madeleine is giving us more reasons to smile this weekend, as the Swedish princess weds her American banker beau, Chris O'Neill, in a blowout royal wedding. To kick things off, the bride's parents, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, threw Madeleine and Chris a pre-wedding dinner attended by the happy couple as well as Madeleine's siblings, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip.

Also in attendance: lots of nobles! Princess Charlene of Monaco stole the show in a sleeveless gold gown with a vest-like topper (way to go avant-garde, Char!). Princess Tatiana of Greece chose a strapless navy dress, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece did a chic tea-length frock with a longer back hem, Princess Marie of Denmark went with neutral taupe and Princess Martha Louise of Norway made a bold statement with a colorful checkered print.

But the fashion highlight of the night wasn't a dress but rather a special guest: Valentino! The Italian designer is the brains behind Madeleine's wedding dress, which will be unveiled at tomorrow's big ceremony.

Oh, how we love a royal wedding. Flip through the photos and get excited!
