Well, her lineage sounds quite appropriate for her new position. She speaks many languages and that will always be handy. So nice, another royal wedding to look forward to.

Does anyone know where the wedding will take place? I can't find where MT and Henri got married but I'm assuming there's a Church that gets used for major events in Luxembourg?
As for the guest lists we can only wait and see, depends when the wedding is held given that I think its going to be a busy summer for most of the Royals with the Olympics and Paralympics (for which opening ceremony is 29th August).
I wonder if they will go for a winter wedding? I'm sure MT and Henri got married in a cold month as I remember MT had fur on her dress?

They married in February.

My suggestions:
Best man: Prince Felix
Maid of Honour: Countess Celine de Lannoy (20-year-old daughter of Stephanie first cousin, Count Alain - himself son of her youngest uncle Claude).

Page Boys: Prince Noah de Nassau (groom's nephew and godson), Prince Emmanuel of Belgium, Count Antoine (seven) de Lannoy (bride's nephew).
Flower Girls: Princess Ariane of the Netherlands, Countess Louise de Lannoy (nine, bride's niece), Princess Louise of Belgium.

Guests:
All uncles and Aunts and Cousins of the groom (apart from a closest family, of course). Also maternal's side of the Groom's family.
of course all Belgian Royal Family (Royal couple, all their children and their spouses and Queen Fabiola; maybe also Princess Esmeralda of Belgium with her husband?)
Prince and Princess of Orange
Duchess and Duke of Vastergotland
Crown Prince and Princess of Norway
Prince and Princess of Asturias
Crown Prince and Princess of Liechtenstein
Prince and Princess of Monaco
Earl and Countess of Wessex
Prince Hamzah and Princess Basmah of Jordan, and Crown Prince Hussein
Moulay Rachid of Morocco
Crown Prince and Princess of Japan

Wedding place: Notre-Dame Cathedral, I suppose. It's very majestic:

You don't think the Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark would be invited to the wedding of a European heir? (or attend on behalf of the Queen)

Of course they will! Just an accidental omission, sorry.

What about deposed royal families? Some romanian, bulgarian, russian, german, italian, french or portuguese royals?

Who do you think will lead Stephanie down the aisle? Her father or maybe a brother?

If William and Kate do come I hope that they will only attend the church wedding and that the Lux. court will ask them to have their lunch at the British ambassadors place, or at the airport or such, considering their arrogant attitude during their own wedding. But as they don't seem to give a hoot about any royals apart from their own family it may be better to send the Wessexes, at least the countess of Wessex seems to enjoy the company of the continental royals.
This is complete rubbish, in my opinion. You seem to have taken the fact that the foreign royals only attended part of the wedding as some kind of personal slight. It seems to have annoyed you more that any of the royals present.

The foreign royals were invited to the wedding, and also to a special party the night before. William and Catherine chose to spend the rest of their wedding day with people they're actually close to. Having had to invite over 700 people they didn't know from Adam to their wedding, I believe that was their right. This was the wedding of the 2nd in line, not the heir, so they had more room for flexibility.

William and Catherine wanted to be surrounded by their family and friends on their wedding day, so they could relax and enjoy it with those closest to them. They're as entitled to that as any other couple. It's obvious the BRF are not as close to the Continental royals, but there's nothing wrong with that, it's just how things have worked out.

But they could have at last attended the Party for the foreign Royals.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's presence is not important. If the British Royals do not attend at all, that will not be the end of the world.

I'm of the opinion that they would not be missed at all should no one from the BRF attend (though I can't foresee that being the case). I'm over the nonsense of it really. Go or don't go, the show will go on in spectacular style.

The continental royals enjoy one anothers company and interact on what we could consider a regular basis. They attend one anothers celebrations with such an enthusiastic turn out. And they are for more interesting to observe than their British counterparts, I might add.

As usually your observations are correct.

Guillaume's parents had a three month engagement period. Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg gave his consent to the engagement of Prince Henri to Maria Teresa Mestre on November 7, 1980. They were married on February 14, 1981 at the gothic Notre Dame Cathedral in Luxembourg City.

Perhaps they could at least invite every royal household reigning and non reigning like Their Imperial & Royal Highness Prince Georg Friedrich & Princess Sophie of Prussia, Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna of Russia & son, Crown Princess Margarita & husband for Romania, both the Duke of Aosta and the Prince of Naples for Italy, the Greek Royal Family, etc etc... I mean it's been awhile since a wedding where there was a whole gathering of European Royals, every head of Imperial & Royal houses were present and this was at the wedding of the Prince & Princess of Asturias.

Yes, the BRF are so uninteresting that there's always an argument when fans of other royal families get the hump because the Queen hasn't sent a senior enough member of her family as a representative. Clearly, no-one's bothered whether they turn up or not.

Part of me would like to see William and Kate go, as that's the only way the British press would cover this event. But I fear it'll be like every other European royal wedding, apart from Hello and Majesty magazines, it'll not get a mention. I haven't seen any reporting in the British press on the engagement so far, which is sad because these two seem like a nice couple.

I will be surprise seeing William&Kate. Guillaumne is CP and expect Charles&Camilla's presence or Wessex who are close to Europen royals. William&Kate can attend to their friends wedding in England not at the wedding of Luxembourgian heir. Mostly we'll see CP and CPss and lot of royals from Belgium and Netherlands. It won't be as grand wedding as Victoria's but very classy and understated. In my favorite cathedral (I hope).

But it was the opinion of one (me) that the continental royals are more interesting than the Windsor's and that I truly would not care if they attend the wedding or they dont.

It wasn't a post which spoke on behalf of anyone other than myself so in light of this, I find your retort somewhat bizarre as it could only be directed at me even though I clearly indicated that it was a personal opinion.

I have to say that the Wessex's are closer in age to many of the Crown Prince/Princess of Europe especially the Scandinavian Royals. From what i've seen/read it seems that they do get along with the European Royals very well so only makes sense that they attend European Royal events instead of HM who at 85 with a 90 year old husband probably doesn't want to be jetting around Europe for such events.
Anyway this wedding is about the Luxembourg Royal Family not the British Royals. I imagine there will be many members of the Belgian Nobility in attendance.
Looking at some of the Luxembourg online news websites it seems there is a lot of financial problems in the country atm I wonder if this will affect the celebrations and we will in fact see a smaller timetable of events rather than a series of lavish events.

Perhaps people should wait for a wedding date to be announced and the invitations sent out before working themselves up about who is or is not attending.
