It would be a really boring place if we all thought the same. Personally I find Stephanie quite endearing but ithat's my subjective opinion.

Thanks

Will this be a tiara and white tie wedding?

Luxembourg weddings are usually morning events, like his parents in 1981 and his paternal aunts and uncles, but I suppose there is an outside chance they might opt for something grander.

I hope it's a tiara event. I can't wait to see all the royal and noble guests!

Don't think the Wedding itself will be white tie but perhaps there is a Chance that thee will be a white tie Ball the evening before. If they follow the same dress Code as for the Weddings of Grand Duke Henri and the Princesses Marie Aastrid and Margaretha the woman will wear long gowns with hats the same as at Prinsjedag in the Netherlands.

Looks like white tie weddings are only popular in the scandinavian RFs.
Such a pity for us "tiaraholics"

because there the Weddings take usually place in the afternoon and are followed by a Dinner and Ball in the envening. In the other countries the Ball (if there is one) s usually held 1 or 2 days before the Wedding and the Wedding itself in the late morning/noon and the followed by a Dinner. Until the 1960's there where always 1 or 2 white tie Balls/Dinners before the Wedding but unfortunately this is not the case anymore.

AArgh ! I hope that they won't go for that unfortunate Prinsjesdag look! It's about time to break that tradition.
Of course, the wedding of Louis and Tessy was much more low key, so it is not necessarily a guideline. But iirc, it was hats and and short dresses.
A good solution would be the Monaco version: morning wedding with a white tie reception in the evening. I'm already dreaming: How many rarely seen tiaras might big dusted off for such a party. I'd gladly help to figure out how tiaras should be distributed amoung the family members .

Speaking about tiaras: do we need a wedding tiara speculation thread know?

I wonder what her wedding tiara will be! Here are Maria Tersea's tiaras.

My predictions: Congo Diamond necklace tiara, Diamond Floral tiara 1#, and Diamond Floral tiara 2#. I personally don't like the Congo; not my favorite. I personally think the two floral tiaras are great wedding tiaras.

I think Stephanie might use a family tiara; there is certain to be one in her family.
On the other hand, this is the wedding of a Hereditary Grand Duchess so a Luxembourg royal tiara might be used; my bet would be one of the two tiaras Maria Teresa used for her wedding - Congo Diamond Necklace Tiara or Belgian Scroll Tiara. Personally I'm hoping it will be the Belgian Scroll Tiara; it's a proper stunner!

She from an old high noble house; she may have family tiaras to choose from.

Yes I know, but you never know. If she does then I wonder what they look like!

Since Guillaume is a direct heir, most if not all the Gotha will send their "first string Royals" to the wedding, am I correct?

Will Britain send the Cambridges or the Wessexes, I wonder?

I would love to see the Cambridge's go to the wedding! Maybe they can send both?

But what about Charles and Camilla?

It was Joséphine-Charlotte not Maria Teresa who used different tiaras for the Ceremony and official photos. Maria Teresa wore only the Congo Necklace Tiara.

Natan will also make a good chance, a Belgian house and also one of Maria Teresa's favorites.

i think she will!!!! Guillaume is godfather to Ariane and Emmanuel of Belgium. so i think who will be bridesmaid and pageboys are Guillaume's nephews Noah and Gabriel, Ariane of Netherlands, Emmanuel of Belgium and to be expected some nephews/nieces that Stephanie might have.

Guillaume went to William and Catherine's wedding so there's a chance, for Edward and Sophie i guess they will go, because they are the representative of the Birtish royal house to these kind of royal events.

Oh please not Natan. The designer can't even make proper daytime outfits.
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?
