this is a wedding of an Heir to the throne, so this will be a state's event.

Elie Saab would be a great choice but I wouldn't also mind another designer but anyone but not Natan.

Re tiaras, a family tiara would be nice to use but I think she would wear a tiara from the Luxembourg collection.

I hope this will be a big wedding celebration over 2-3 days. Would Kings & Queens come to the wedding or might they just send Crown Prince & Crown Princesses instead?
If she does pick Natan, I personally think the designer would do a great job since he made Mathilde's and Claire's wedding dresses, which were very beautiful to me.

I agree with Dazzling about Natan! I have yet to see one of their designs which I like. They just look stiff and bold to me. Whereas Elie Saab's dresses often have such a flowing lightness (I hope you get what I mean). Just remember Victoria's pre-wedding dress, what a masterpiece!!!
But then it would be quite appropriate to have a local designer. Is there anyone else from Luxembourg or Belgium?

That would be very nice to see sweet Ariane and Emmanuel participate at wedding of hers/his godfather

I suspect the guest list will look like this(i may miss some people out):
The Earl and Countess of Wessex (UK - wouldn't be wholly surprised if some one less in the rankings was sent)
Fred and Mary (Denmark)
Queen Beatrix, W-A and Maxima, Constantijn and Laurentien (netherlands)
King & Queen of Sweden, Victoria and Daniel, Carl Philip (Sweden)
Haakon and Mette-Marit, Martha Louise and Ari Behn (Norway)
King and Queen of Belgium, Brabants, Astrid Lorenz and children (Belgium)
Albert and Charlene (Monaco)

don't know about Greek Royals, are any of them especially close to the Luxembourg Royals?

I think Stephanie will wear her family tiara if she has one, because i think it could be the only occasion she has to wear it (after marriage she should wear the tiaras of the Luxembourg royal family). It would be also a way to honour her family.

I agree, i think if the family have one she will wear it, like you say she'll be able to wear the Luxembourg tiaras for the rest of her life.

Are there any days which are not "free" for a wedding (holidays of the LRF, government events,...)?

I doubt that the wedding will take place during the Olympics. Too many Royals will be busy supporting their countries in London then.

Actually at the Wedding of Henri and Maria Teresa send the Duke of Edinburgh and from Denmark Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik and from Norway King Olav. The Kings of Sweden and Spain send their sisters (Princess Crhistina and Infanta Margarita) and the Netherlands where represented through Princess Margriet.

The attendence of Royals also has to do with a bit with who is free at that date. Unless there are other important engagements scheduled, I expect the Belgium and Dutch Royals to attend in full force (with the very sad exeption of Friso and Mabel). Spain and the UK are usually more restrained when it comes to attending foreign events.
From what I know, all the Scandinavian heirs have close personal relationships with Guillaume. So that bodes well.

One date is an impossible weddingdate for them: 08-09-2012 because Guillaume's first Cousin, Archduke Imre marries Kathleen Walker.

They probably will only give us a rough direction today. Like: the wedding will be in late summer/autumn/winter, or whatever. At the moment the court probably is still very busy checking and re-checking possible dates.

since GD Henri is King Albert's nephew I'm pretty sure the Belgian royal family will be all there (Guillaume is P.Emmanuel's godfather so he can possibly be one of the pages)
It's a shame BRF is always so distant to other families...

Will Britain send the Cambridges or the Wessexes, I wonder?
My guess is that Count and Countess of Wessex will represent the UK. They has been assigned to do it. Prince William never showed any interest in attending such event.

I agree with you. I hope that Countess Stephanie will give preference to Elie Saab's creation. His wedding dresses are magnificent.

I wonder if a date has already been decide upon? It was interesting when Guillaume's uncle said they already knew about the engagement but not when it was being made public. Maybe some discreet planning has already got underway?
I'm wondering if it will take place mid August after Olympics or early September? I read somewhere that Guillaume's parents has about 4/5month engagement period.

Maybe a custom Valentino or Elie Saab but not Natan.

It probably will be Edward & Sophie though I guess that it will depend on whether or not they are touring abroad for the Queen's Jubilee.

I think that William & Kate's tour is in September though I agree with you that he hasn't seemed that keen on attending these types of functions. Of course now that he is married and has a partner to take along with him he might be more inclined to go.

They aren't, really. While British Royal Family tends to send few (if any) representative to European royal gatherings, they are far closer to foreign royals, especially Scandinavian and Dutch ones, then we think. For example, during the recent tour of Scandinavia of Prince Charles and Camilla, we learnt many stories of wonderfully warm (and mostly private) interactions between the families, such as Queen Sonja's frequent stays at Highgrove.

My mistake, thanks for correcting!
I still hope Stephanie will opt for something other than the Congo Tiara; it looks rather plain to mee.

A nice short engagement - thats what we like!!! I am hopeful that people in the know will be able to post updates about the wedding etc in the run-up to the event.
From the UK I should imagine that Edward and Sophie will attend, although it would be fantastic if William and Catherine were to attend if only because of the similar ages.
As for all you tiara lovers out there, I will hope at least for a grand dinner event where full jewels must be worn!!!
