Järvsö bride. "The bridal crown, which is one of the most spectacular in Sweden, is decorated with flowers and silk ribbons. Around the sleeves there are white lace tied with floral silk ribbons. The bib, like the crown, is covered with flowers, pearls and curled strips made of thin sheets of brass" - Laila Durán,
