Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy actually will have to wedding cakes. One will be made by the Pâtisserie Oberweis, that has been a Fournisseur de la Cour for a long time. Additionally to what will look like a traditional wedding cake to most eyes, there will be a Baamkuch made by the Confiserie Namur. In Luxembourg a Baamkuch, a tasty layered cake, is traditionally served at weddings and other special occassions.
3.000 roses, 500 green plants and other flowers will adorn the cathedral on Saturday. The Service Jardin et Parc from Château de Berg will arrange the flowers, with the help of a florists school from Ettelbrück.
The wedding rings that Guillaume and Stéphanie will wear after they say yes, are made from fair trade gold. A very good decision.
Not only Léa Linster will prepare the food for the Grand Ducal wedding. Under the watchful eyes of Franck Panier, a team of chefs, also including Thierry Duhr and the head chef of the hotel Le Royal, will be cooking for the gala dinner.
The bridal couple had already revealed that the statue of the Virgin Mary would be adorned by a scarf that previously belonged to Countess Stéphanie's late mother Countess Alix de Lannoy. The scarf is made of delicate Belgian lace from the 18th century. Now it has become known that a new dress for the statue was made - out of the wedding dress of Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa. Pearl-adorned parts of the dress were taken from the dress, white mink added and a new dress for the statue of the Virgin Mary was made.
