Why don't you never accept a critic? It's sort of an extravaganza to celebrate in the courtyard of the Palace the wedding of a Souvereing. Think about it. They should do it in the cathedral, that's where catholic people marry. And don't say what you always say: "the cathedral has space for only XXX persons and in the wedding there will be XXXXX guests..."
Is still suspicious for me the way they organize everything.
Maybe she is not catholic but will marry in the catholic church...oops, sorry, catholic courtyard.

Thanks for the pictures Nathalie! So, they're having new chairs made for them, that's interesting. The sketches look nice, if the wedding looks that good it will sure be a beautiful wedding. I'm still hoping for a tiara wedding, I hope Victoria's wedding inspired them, I wanna see some bling, but in one of the pictures we see ladies with hats, but at the ball we see long gowns so we'll wait and see. From the drawings it seems the courtyard is going to be covered because we can see a chandelier hanging in the middle. I'm getting more and more excited the closer we get!!

Presumably you also believe that Papal funerals and enthronements, both rather solemn RC ceremonies, should be held inside St Peters Basilica and not in the plaza in front, but apparently The Vatican disagrees.

Thanks for sharing this- the sketches are very interesting. I have to admit- I am also having a hard time warming up to the idea of an outdoor wedding in the palace courtyard. I guess I am just used to seeing royal weddings in cathedrals. Either way- an outdoor wedding will be great for the TV cameras. Lets hope that there are no gusts of wind or flocks of birds that fly overhead!

The other thing I don't really care for is the red and white scheme- a little too much contrast for my taste. While red is a traditional wedding colour in many cultures, I find it a little harsh. However, it looks like there will be lots of fresh flowers, so that should help!

Thanks for sharing. This was really interesting!

Am I wrong, but do the sketches imply that the reception will be held at the Oceanographic Museum?

Was there an official statement regarding where the reception will be held? Does the palace have a ballroom anyway?

It has been confirmed that the reception will be in the oceanographic museum, immediately after the ceremony. I think the palace has a ballroom although I've never seen pictures of it, most of the important events are in the throne room which can not accommodate all the guests for a sit down dinner.

I've never liked outdoor weddings!
I always think there are bugs around (even if I can't see them, I think they're there!)

Also, it seems far too casual for a royal wedding. It would be so much better to copy Rainier and Grace's wedding; from the pictures I have seen, that was simply lovely.

Could you explain the difference please? I mean Papal funerals and enthronements are both rather solemn RC ceremonies, especially the funeral mass and they are not held in Cathedrals. Popes perform masses in fields and football stadiums when travelling abroad but presumably that doesnt make the mass any less a holy event.

I know we are all used to weddings, especially royal ones, being held inside a cathedral but I could say the same thing about funerals. God, if one exists, is supposed to be everywhere so I would expect the courtyard ceremony to pass muster with the divinity as well.

Perhaps Albert just remembers his parents saying how much they hated their own wedding ceremony which was held at the cathedral and decided to try something different.

It's different because a funeral is held in the cathedral. The coffin is carried outside, so all people can see it. I'm talking about head of state funeral, or some important person.
The enthronement is held outside, yes. But that's is different again from a wedding. Tradional catholic weddings are inside a church. This wedding will be not that traditional. I think Albert wants a big wedding, something different, something extravagant...so he celebrate it outside.
I personally don't agree, for a head of state, to celebrate a wedding outside the cathedral of his country in this case.

Thanks to the sketches, I have to say this is going to be very special. Obviously, a wedding outdoors will have so many challenges -- weather issues, acoustics, etc. But the palace courtyard does address two important issues: it is big enough to accommodate the intended number of guests, but also not too big that it will take away from the sense of intimacy.

Not to mention how beautiful the courtyard is as it is, with the Gallery of Hercules as a backdrop. So just imagine it with the flowers.

I've always seen Monaco as extremely unique. So should this succeed, then perhaps they will set a precedent as far as outdoor royal weddings are concerned.

Appropriate place since Charlene was a swimmer.

I visited the Palace some years ago and most of the rooms one could see whee not very big. The Hallo of Mirrors where they always stand at the Weindow on the national Day wasn't included in the rooms who where open but i doubt there would be enough space to held a banquet for all the people who attend the Wedding. If they religious Ceremony would not be in the Courtyard this would have been a beautiful location for the ball but so it's not possible.

The prince Albert defends the environement and the seas with all the ecosystem, in his last interviews with Patric poivre D'arvor, he said that he is very closed to the oceanograph museum, but I think for you, there is any beautiful wedding without cathedral, palace with his ball room. You must become modern, we are in the XXI century. I also visit the palace of Monaco.We visite some rooms, the others are privat. They are not enough big to receive all the guests. Rainier and Grace made the dinner lunch in the yard. there are many people for the wedding of Prince Albert and Charlene,Point De Vue said there will be the room where there will be the dinner with the 60 privileged guests, and and there will be 38 rounds tables for other guest in the room besides. In the first loor, there will be a room where the guests will wait the brides in drinking Champagne and than there will a ball in a big room called 'Salle de conference';
The enthronement and the funeral of the pape are .outside and during the ceremony then catholic people are outside not inside, and the pape is the head od state of the Vatican but he is also the chief of all the catholic people, and all the people must respect him and he is above the kings and the queens and they must respect him, for us he is the most important man of the world. And the catholic people respect him so the enthronement or funeral people is outside.
I had a cousin who married with a catholic irish man , the wedding was very solemn, My sister attend to the wedding who was very traditional ,It was outside. There are no rule for that.

I really actually like the idea of how the ceremony could look in the courtyard. Having said that though I still don't see them fitting 4 thousand people there. I really hope they are doing a test run with chairs and thinking about elbow room and that people can easily walk down the rows if needed.

Then I think of all the things that can go wrong. Despite rain on your wedding day being lucky, CW suggesting that if it rained on her she would look like "Alice Cooper" sort of worries me!

What about bathroom facilities ? Parking (sounds mundane, but 4 thousand is a lot!)? I mean even if 4000 invites went out, have they all been RSVP'd already?

Yet as long as it is feasible for the above reasons I stated, and will be completely legal, and will not cause problems with any future heirs claim to the throne, the Catholic issue, etc. I can see how it might be very nice. They should stop giving out details so much though and leave something as a surprise for the wedding day itself.
