Dress Code for the Festivities on December 10

Dress code for the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony: dark suit for gentlemen, and short or long dress for ladies. At the Nobel Banquet, gentlemen are required to wear white tie and tails, and ladies long evening gown. Thus, if attending both ceremonies, white tie and tails for gentlemen and evening gown for ladies apply.

Dress code for photographers is dark suit/long dress or dark two piece suit at both events.

For dress hire, consult the yellow pages in the Stockholm telephone directory ("Kläder uthyrning") or contact the MFA Press Centre. To give an example of prices, it may be mentioned that the cost of hiring white tie and tails, including shirt and waistcoat, is SEK 1,300 at a well-reputed dress rental firm in Stockholm. If possible, bring your own cuff-links, bow-tie and shirt studs. Otherwise, these items can be also purchased.

At a corresponding dress hire firm for ladies, the cost of hiring a long evening gown varies between SEK 1,500-2,500. The price includes handbag, jewellery, long gloves and a shawl or a jacket.

Kindly note that it is often difficult to find hotel rooms in Stockholm. The Press Centre, unfortunately, cannot assist you in this matter. You are, therefore, advised to make your own booking as soon as possible. For suggestions of hotels, please see website: www.visit-sweden.com.
