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?

On June 15, 1559 the Duke of Alva arrived to claim Princess Elisabeth of France by proxy for his master King Philip II of Spain. On June 21 the proxy wedding took place. The young bride did not depart for the Spanish court until the autumn.

Élisabeth de Valois was just 14 years old at the time,the Franco-Spanish wedding was arranged as part of the the Peace of Cateau Cambrésis between Henri II of France and Phillip II. The departure of Élisabeth to Spain was a result of the death of her father in a jousting tournament and her mother,now the French queen Regent delayed her eldest daughters departure .

I guess the ruler of the country the bride was from. Normally her father, brother or guardian. The representative of the groom was a close relative of the bride or the groom.

In these times it was an absolute no-go to send an unmarried princess into a foreign country without her parents when she was of marriageable age. They exchanged little princesses to be raised with their future husbands at their future courts, yes. But never older princesses! The marriage by proxy made her into a married wife on her way to her husband's lands - completely different situation.
