Sorry if this has been asked before but looked back and couldn't see any mention of it. Will the Royal guests (assuming there are royal guests) be attending the civil ceremony or not do we think? What happened with Henri and MT - did guests come to both or just the church service? I know that Monaco had a small civil wedding and big religious one but i think the Netherlands had the same guests attending both civil and religious services. Just wondering how much of the royal guests we might get to see

Don't think the royal guests will attend the civil Ceremony.
As far as i know at Henri and Maria Teresa's Wedding the civil Wedding was attended by Familiy and luxemburgian officials so i think the same will be the case here.

I think reigning monarchs may attend the civil ceremony. I saw pictures of Queen Margrethe, King Baudouin, and Queen Fabiola at the civil ceremony of Henri and Maria Teresa.

As Henri was the nephew of king Baudouin and queen Fabiola I would say they where there as a part of the family, and I think it's very likely that king Albert and queen Paola will attend the civil ceremony when Guillaume and Stéphanie will marry as members of the (extended) family.

So many of Guillaume AND Stephanie's blood relatives are Royals that their civil ceremony(not to mention their Nuptial Mass) is bound to be a Who's Who.

As previously mentioned Guillaume is related the Belgian and Norwegian Royals, as well as those of Liechtenstein and Sweden.

Stephanie is related to the family of the Count of Paris through the marriage of one of her cousins(French Royalty) and I think the Portuguese Orleans-Braganca as well.

I am beginning to wonder how Notre-Dame Cathedral will hold everyone that might be invited to this wedding!

I'm getting more excited by the day! I can't wait for this marriage! I, also, look forward to seeing all of Stephanie's brothers and sisters, [she has 7 siblings!],and her in-laws, and her nephews and nieces, etc..some of whom will undoubtedly be photographed, so that we will be able to see them online in the official Luxembourg Royal Court website as well as the photographs that will come out in magazines like Hola, Hello, Majesty, Point de Vue and Paris Match. Also, I'm excited about the official book published by Editions Saint-Paul that will undoubtedly be coming out!

On a lighter note, as you ponder Moonmaiden, will all the guests be able to fit in the cathedral?

So, will she wear her wedding dress for the religious ceremony? Or for both?

Mirabel, since there will be two ceremonies over two days I am sure Stephanie will wear one outfit for the Friday civil ceremony, and her full bridal gown for the Mass in Church the following morning.

And for the Evening Gala on the night before the Church ceremony there will be an evening gown...not her bridal attire.

Karl Lagerfeld? Really? I can see him commentating on Albert & Charlene's due the relationship he has with the Monaco family but... he's commentating on the Luxembourg wedding?

Maybe the sponsoring channel realized that fashion is the primary interest of their viewers, and so more people would watch if the marriage ceremony was commented upon by Lagerfeld. There IS a lot of interest in royals' fashion. I think it's good that the couple established a social welfare fund instead of asking for gifts. It seems their palace is probably already pretty stocked with china and plate, but I'll bet some creative gifts come forth for their personal use. Like books.

Kaiser Karl can be really unkind...didn't he recently come out and call Pippa Middleton unattractive?

I hope he can behave himself on Oct20th.

Yes Mariel, I agree. I bet Guillaume and Stephanie would love to receive books and CD's as well...they are both big fans of classical music.

Karl said: "Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back."

The Luxembourg Royal Family--all due respect--is not exactly known for their exquisite styling choices. Maria Teresa, Alexandra and now Stephanie have worn less than flattering outfits in the past, unlike Kate Middleton who always hits the spot. This could open the door to harsh criticism from Lagerfeld if they continue to make those poor choices on the day of the wedding. On the other hand, Lagerfeld may hold his tongue understanding that if he is to harsh, he might alienate very wealthy and important [potential] customers [i.e. the Luxembourg royal family themselves].

I like MOST of the things the Duchess of Cambridge wears but I disagree that she always gets it right. She has worn a couple of outfits that I found downright ugly(that bright neon orange Stella McCartney dress comes immediately to mind) and sorry, but those sausage skin tight jeans she seems to favor leave me cold. I don't want an outline of her rear end or other private bits.

BUT...I agree with you 100% about the frumpiness in general of the Luxembourg Royal women. A friend who lives there has told me that Lux society just doesn't place the kind of importance on stylishness for their Royal family that they do in countries like England and Spain.

So in that way, Stephanie fits in really well. Which is a shame because she is young and pretty and has more than enough money at her disposal to look smashing if she truly made an effort.

Well I don't think the Lux Royal women are frumpy. Think they're dressed as most women, with higher price tags of course.

But frumpy is a very broad word.

Back on the wedding topic. I can't wait to see Stephanie's dress!!! It makes me wonder how good of a relationship MT has with Elie Saab that he could make a custom gown for Stephanie.

Custom made Saab would be great, but I have little hope to see it. I wish we will see Stephanie in nice (not frumpy) gown which will reflect her personality and won't be over the top. I hope Kaiser Karl will pleased

I agree as I don't think that the Duchess of Cambridge gets it always right, she has had her misses just like everyone else.

Concerning Luxembourg: of course there is talk when one of the ladies gets it really wrong but in general more importance is placed on their work and how they interact with the public, something I find rather refreshing.
Being a royal is much more than being a human hallstand. And I don't mean that as an offense towards the DoC or any of the other ladies, I believe it is the media that places so much attention of what everyone wears, rather than the work they are doing.

I would love to see her in an Elie Saab wedding gown so she might prefer to go with a Belgian designer. Good things is that Natan's bridal gowns, the Duchess of Brabant's and Princess Claire's come to mind, are actually rather beautiful. The latter one is actually one of my all time favourites.
