I think most of the wedding happens in the city/country of the bride. Felix of Luxemburg, Imre and Christoph Habsburg, ect. did it too. I did not expect them to marry in Brussels. Rome or even New York was more logical. Rumors says they'll move to Belgium after their wedding, if it's true it's a reason more for them to marry in Rome

Amedeo and Lili also said the wedding is going to be a traditional catholic wedding and an intimate one, with only friends and family.
No much pictures then, I guess

A Belgian newssite says they will marry in the summer and that it will be an intimate ceremony. They also say that, because the couple wants a traditional marriage, it's likely they will marry in Rome. They're not certain. I'm waiting for the tv-show Royalty for more news. It airs in an hour or two :)

That's true, I'd forgotten about Claire and Felix, Imre and Kathleen and Christoph and his wife. The reason why I was unsure was because Mathilde married Philippe in Belgium, but that's probably because she is The Queen.

I don't know if that's a catholic tradition...but at least in Italy we have the tradition of having the wedding in the city/country of the bride (if the couple is from the same town they marry in the bride's parish church)
I'm glad they will have an italian wedding: mediterranean summers are the best for weddings...but honestly Rome is too hot in the summer
I never expected them to have a "public" wedding...but I hope their guest list will be more than "few friends and family"

Mathilde is a belgian too. But I guess she married in Brussels instaid of in Bastogne (where her family lived) because she married the heir and because she lived and worked in Brussels. Same goes for Princess Claire.

Isn't Mathilde Polish though? I remember reading that her father is Polish and Mathilde and her siblings grew up there. (That's why I mentioned Mathilde in my previous post.)

Traditionally the wedding takes place in the parish of the bride because it's also a "goodbye-party". She leaves the country to live with her husband and rarely goes back there.
My tought exactly! It will be way too hot to have a wedding there...
Sadly, I strongly doubt they'll invite more than just friends and family

It ias very often done in noble circles. Also here in Germany. For example the Hereditary Prince of Isenburg has announced his engagement a few days ago. And it was said that the religious Wedding will take place in Bavaria and not in Birstein where the have a big Castle which is managed by the Hereditary Prince. But in this case the civil Ceremony will be there. But in other families often the Wedding took place in the place from where the bride comes and not where the Family Castle is and they live after the Wedding.

Mathilde's mum is Polish but was born a grew up in Belgium (she doesn't speak a word of Polish I'm afraid). She married in Bruxelles clearly because her wedding was a state occasion since she married the hair. Same for Stephanie who got married in Luxembourg instead of Belgium.

Thankfully Amedeo seems to have a close relationship with his cousins from Luxembourg and Austria (Marie Astrid's children) and with Pierre Casiraghi (plus Beatrice Borromeo is sort of related to Elisabetta). Hopefully they will all be in attendance. If the rule of reciprocate the invitation is applied, Guillaume and Felix with their wives will be invited to the wedding (although I'm not sure Claire will be able to attend because of the pregnancy/new born baby)

Comgratulations to Amedeo and Elisabetta and their families. It is so good to see all of them very happy and excited in the pictures.

He was at Felix' wedding, but I can't remember if he was at Guillaume's.
And, even though he lives in New York, he didn't went to Imre's wedding in Washington DC...

The following is the engagement photos

BelgaPicture - Prince Amedeo and Ms. Rosboch von Wolkstein

Princess Astrid looked happy. The couple is absolutely lovely. It is great to see King Philippe and Queen Mathilde attending the engagement.

Congratulations to the couple! Although I always thought Prince Amedeo would marry a Princess.

I think we may see a lot of Benelux and non-reigning royals going to Rome this summer. In my opinion, we can expect many some Archdukes and Archduchesses of Austria, the Princes and Princesses of Ligne, The Duke and Duchess of Braganza, maybe some french royalty and the Orleans-Braganzas (although Prince Antonio and Princess Christine of Brazil will be hosting the wedding of their daughter, Princess Amélia, this summer, which is winter in their part of the world).

I was always fascinated by the non-reigning royals, the way they keep their traditions with so much honor and dignity, decades after the loss of their thrones. And Prince Amedeo is part non-reigning, as he's an Archduke of Austria-Este.
