It's Sweden's wedding of the century. When Crown Princess Victoria marries Daniel Westling at Stockholm's Storkyrkan Cathedral on Saturday, it will be both a private affair and a spectacular state occasion.

The wedding itself is open to invited guests only, but SVT will be screening the entire ceremony at 3:25pm. The programming will be available wherever you are in the world and will be shown on big screens all around the carriage procession route.

The ceremony will be followed by a carriage procession through Stockholm, from the church, over Norrbro, up Sveavägen, down Kungsgatan and Birger Jarlsgatan, down Strandvägen and over to Djurgården. From there, the couple will take the Royal Barge Vasaordern (pictured above during the visit of Emperor Akihito of Japan) across the water back to the palace.

Twenty bands - 19 military and one civilian - will provide music as the royal couple's cortège makes its way round.

The Local will be carrying live television coverage of the procession for everyone situated in the Nordic Region.

The Local's reporters will be there on the route and will be blogging as it happens.

If you can get into Stockholm, you can stand anywhere along the route. The best views will be around Skeppsholmen and Norrbro, where you will get a chance of seeing the Crown Princess and newly minted Prince Daniel twice. A map of the route is below, showing exactly where The Local's reporters will be standing:

Inviting north korea, sudan and representatives from all other democratic and human right abiding countries is also such a nice move. Well done Sweden, hope it's gonna rain like hell!

Notice how the boat is a little lower on the side that the chin is pointing?

@nasp, what a nasty mean spirited person you are. Those invites that you speak of is a matter of protocal and basic common decency..I am sure that if she weren't who she is, there in no way in hell would they be invitied. Why are so many jealous of this wedding is beyond me.

@repat-xpat, bet your chin and nasty ego are a hell of a lot bigger then her chin. You must be the only perfect person in the world to look at. Why not put your face on the internet so that people can make fun of you. Only God is perfect or do you consider your self God? I feel sorry for your parents to raise one who is so beyond perfect that it is pitiful.
