Marriage by proxy

Marriage by proxy is a wedding in which one or both of the individuals being united are not physically present. They are usually being represented by other persons.
On April 19, 1777 Archduchess Maria Antonia (Marie Antoinette) of Austria was married by proxy to the Dauphin of France at the Augustinian Church in Vienna. Her brother Archduke Ferdinand stood in for the Dauphin.
In a royal marriage by proxy, who picks the person to represent the absent bride/groom?
