Luxembourg is a tiny country, but it seems their Royals have always been popular and highly respected by their peers in the Gotha. They are invariably on the guest list for high profile Royal events.

None other than Philip Duke of Edinburgh attended the wedding of Henri and Maria Teresa.

I expect the turnout for the wedding of their son and Heir to be huge.

I hope that tv in Sweden will send the wedding cermony, as they have shown several of the royal weddings in Europe before. I do hope that I don't work that Friday and Saturday, as I missed the religious cermony in Monaco because of work.

They are my favorite royal couple too. Because there is so much Eurozone misery at present, I am praying that there is enough peace for their marriage to take place in October. I wish they would marry civilly now, so that they could be together during the storms blowing through Europe economically, at present. This will be a bad summer and they should be together. Just my weird opinion, much as I too look forward to a cathedral wedding of this lovely pair. God bless Guillome and Stephanie.

Hopefully it will be a sunny and mild Autumn this year for Guillaume and Stephanie's wedding - I'm sure Luxembourg will look as beautiful and the couple. And I am sure there will be a huge turn out of senior royals and other guests from all over the world to attend this wedding.

Well, sooner or later the Cambridges will have to start taking part in such royal duties as attending different royal occations and a wedding would be a good way to begin. It would be nice if they could accompany the Wessexes, as they have been at so many royal weddings in last decade or so and have probably made friends at those weddings.

I'm guessing that's how it will be. I wonder why they don't have the Civil Ceremony in the morning and then a reception around lunchtime and then have an afternoon church ceremony followed by the gala dinner so that we could have a tiara-filled wedding!

RoyalistRiley, I think the wedding celebrations are being scheduled this way so that by the early evening of Oct20th, the bride and groom will be well off to begin their honeymoon.

The first thing that sprang to mind when I saw the itinerary was that Guillaume and Stephanie do not intend to spend their wedding night dancing until nearly 3am, as did Victoria and Daniel.

I think it's going to be a very beautiful and exciting two days...I can't wait!

This wedding sounds like it is going to be simply magnificent...a High Mass in that gorgeous Cathedral, preceded by a Gala evening at the Ducal Palace that will feature most of the Gotha in tiaras, sashes, and white tie...hopefully.

And I can't wait!

As much as I am slightly in love with the Duchess of Cambridge I couldn't agree with you more in that if the Cambridges do go (unlikely but stranger things have happened) it will overshadow the rest of the event, which looks like it's going to be amazing! Guillaume and Stephanie are my new favourite couple and I hope the spotlight will be firmly on them too!

Also, do the rest of the European Royal Houses attend Luxembourg's weddings en mass as they seem to do for Scandinavia? I hope so!
I would have to agree here. I adore the Cambridges, but it would appear that wherever they are, there's a media frenzy and obsession with what Catherine is wearing (or not wearing, but should be wearing), and that distracts the attention from the event (even though the couple does everything to make sure attention is focused elsewhere [Catherine's recycling/modest clothing comes to mind here]). The bride and groom deserve to have all the attention lavished on them, since it's their day, and having the Cambridges there may make it a little difficult (though the presence will most likely gain some coverage for the event in countries like US).

Well, I can't see why it i all that bad that the Anglosaxon press will be focussing on the duchess instead of on the couple. I am sure that the Spanish press will pay attention to the princes of Asturias etc.

Having that said, I dont think it is likely they will come, the earl and countess of Wessex seem more appropriate, esp. since they actually seem to enjoy spending time with foreign royalty. I believe the Duchess of Cornwall never attended European royal events either, so it may be nice if she and the prince of Wales would attend.

I agree, it will be very interesting to see of C&C attend the wedding. Watching the interaction between Camilla and MT at the BP dinner in May, it seemed the women had good chemistry and clearly knew each other well. The Wessex's can go along if they like, but I very much doubt it that the Cambridge couple will attend.

You'd be surprised. You never know who might attend. I wouldn't discard William and Kate. When Henri and Maria Teresa were married, no less personage than Prince Phillip represented England at the wedding.

Fair point, though I was only stating what I thought might be the likely.

I fully agree with you. It would be odd if Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, attended the wedding.

The Dress at the right side I think would suit (in white or white-similar colour) Stephanie!

Principessa, the dress at the right in the Hello magazine link would look great on Stephanie, as she has a great figure, which you could see when she wore casual clothes to the Red Cross dog trials in Luxembourg. However, I think she will wear a more modest dress because she will not flaunt her curves (which are better than the model's). The patterning in the skirt would be great, though. We will just have to wait and see.

I am interested that the insignia--coat of arms?--of Lux presented at the beginning of this thread has Ermine as one of its principal features. I believe I have read this was a feature of the Brittany royals when Brittany was a separate principality. I read quite a bit on the Stuart royal family of England and Scotland including their early ancestry in Brittany. Just speculating on backgrounds, not an expert on coats of arms.

Stephanie may wear a fur-trimmed gown (like but not exactly like ermine), as Maria Teresa did for her wedding to Grand Duke Henri.

There is a Ermine background in most, if not all, royal coat of arms, as ermine have been seen as a sign of royalty for a long time.

Exactly.

William and Kate and Victoria and Daniel danced far into the night on the day they were married, but I think the Luxembourg Court has planned Guillaume and Stephanie's wedding a little differently.

The late night revelry will take place on the eve of the wedding so that the Royal newlyweds can leave for their honeymoon in the early evening of their wedding day.
