I would have been very surprised if Stephanie af Klercker had been invited, especially when you know who her boyfriend is ! BTW I got the impression that she and Jonas were getting married around the same time??

I could be completely wrong here but weren't all the royal guests (apart from The Queen, Philip, Charles and Camilla,) transported to William and Kate's wedding in buses. ?

At least in Guillaume's and Stephanie's wedding many royals were transported in mini buses, and at Victoria's and Daniel's wedding the royals were transported in buses to the dinner and concert on the day before the wedding.

Only some members of the British Royal Family were transported in buses.

True, but let's not forget that Madeleine's wedding will be a white tie and tiara affair, how unglamorous would it be for invitees to arrive in buses, plus with long gowns and head you have to stand still to make sure your tiara doesn't slip, I'm sure we'd see many royal ladies fall miserably!

At the Wedding of Frederik and Mary all the royal guests where transported in buses. And that was also a white tie Wedding.

As for the private pre-wedding party at Grand Hotel, we don't know whether it will be white tie or not, but my guess is that it will be black tie.

When it comes to the wedding ceremony I would guess that the royal guests attending the wedding will be staying at the Royal Castle and will be able to walk to the chapel, and also that the members of Chris' family also will gather at the castle before the ceremony and walk to the chapel.

As for the dinner afterwards at Drottningholm Castle, it's very possible that the guests will be transported there by boat, in the same manner that was done at the wedding of princess Christina in 1974. The Royal Castle is next to the water and there is a mooring point for boats just across a road from the castle so the guests could easily walk down to the boat(s).

The buses used in these formal situations are not very different from flying first class. For the guests it is probably much more comfortable riding in a bus as the women are wearing gala dresses so the spaciousness of the seats are appreciated.

At Victoria's and Daniel's wedding the ladies had long gowns at the dinner and concert, and they were transported by bus. They didn't have tiaras though.

IIRC, At QMargrethe's 70th Birthday Celebrations guests were transported with busses and it was a white tie affair with tiara, sashes, gowns, orders etc.

Why is this so important? Perhaps they will have differnent forms of transport. Cars for older or higher- ranking persons and buses for friends? Who cares?

Hello writes that they are confirmed.
Sophie of Wessex and Prince Edward confirm their attendance at Princess Madeleine's royal wedding - hellomagazine.com

SvenskDam writes that Bertil Ternert told them that there is a big kitchen at the Drottningholm Palace, but they will have to complete it with other resources, there isn't enough room for 50 chefs. About the wedding dinner, a party tent like the king had on his 60th birthday is an alternative, but likely the wedding dinner will be served in Rikssalen, like at princess Christina's wedding with 251 guests, and by Victoria's and Daniel's wedding there were 230 guests at the Drottningholm Rikssalen at the private party.
Grand Hotel's Princess Lilian's suite (70 000 SEK/night) and the Bernadotte suite (35 000 SEK/night are already booked for the guests, and some double rooms.
According to SvenskDam's sources, Madeleine and Chris will have a cortege from the Royal Palace to Riddarholmen, and go from there by ship to Drottningholm. Some of the guests will be taken to Drottningholm at another ship. This hasn't been confirmed.

Some do care! IMO it boils down to cultural differences and/or perceptions of what is appropriate transportation for royalty/heads of state! Noone wonders about the buses in Northern Europe, however I bet that there are countries where the head of state and his entourage won't be seen dead even in a luxury bus! I know very little of the Saudi and the Brunei royal families, but for some reason, I can't imagine them going to a wedding in a bus.

Certainly never thought that Sophie and Edward would be guests - i somehow imagined this a quiter wedding with other neighbouring royals attending ie Denmark and Norway.

As I doubt any members of the Saudi or Brunei royal families are invited to this wedding I don't see a reason for addressing that issue here.

You misunderstood my post! I was writing about different perceptions in different cultures of what is appropriate transport for heads of state.
