As for historical weddings I suppose the wedding of Pss Victoria Luise of Prussia with Ernst August of CUmberland in 1913 would be a great one to attend (grandparents of Q. Sofia of Spain). The last gathering of 'old Europe': the Kaiser, the Tsar and the king of England all together in Berlin:



(copyrights expired)

As for the more recent ones, the Belgian or Spanish royal weddings were most interesting as they had the highest number of royal guests present & the best music selection.

For me, I think:

William & Catherine
Nicholas II & Alexandra
Victoria & Daniel or Willem-Alexander & Maxima

Though really, who would turn down an invitation to any royal wedding?! :)

I would want to go to any of them, but the following come to mind (not in any particular order):

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Princess Stephanie (to see that dress up close!)
Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip
Nicholas II and Alexandra
Princess Victoria Luise of Prussia with Ernst August of Cumberland in 1913 (yes, Marengo!)
Prince Willem Alexander and Maxima
Prince William and Katherine (I want to be in Westminster Abbey and hear that organ, choir and music)
Crown Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit (the dress)
Crown Prince Frederik and Mary
Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel

There's more, I just haven't thought of them yet!

QueenJen, I've always longed to see HGD Stephanie's bridal gown up close too. As beautiful as it was, I am sure that nothing compared to seeing it up close. Someone who was in the choir loft during the ceremony posted that it sparkled like a diamond.

I've always thought pictures probably didn't do it justice. The video caught some of the sparkle, but I have wondered if it was even more 'sparkly' in person. You've confirmed my suspicions. Ahhhh....

Monaco wedding: to get more into the mood and be able to say whether or not they were sad like the rumours had it.

Victoria and Daniel: I simply love them

W&K: to be able to see the Queen, how Kate looks like live and to see Prince Harry ;-)

Modern? No European ones. I don't like weddings, I attend those for people I love and care about. I don't see the point of attending a wedding for someone I don't know, even a royal one. Happy to see the photos and discuss it.

Foreign weddings yes because I'd like to see some of the customs and ceremony. The king and queen of Bhutan come to mind.

Historical weddings I'd be interested in, from the view point of a historian. I would love to see the more extravagant/elaborate weddings that would have been held.

I would have loved to attend a French wedding like Catherine de Medici and Henry II. Or Marie Antoinette and Louis. Occasions that were several days and full of events.

OK. Question. Will Sarah, Duchess of York be invited to Prince Harry's wedding?

And, if she is not, will the Yorks boycott it like HRH Mary the Princess Royal famously opted out of QEII's coronation?
