I´ve read Alfons and Louise were deeply in love...

And I read that their marriage was arranged when Marie Valerie of Austria refused Alfons and offered Luise, her cousin, as a future wife for him.

In a spanish site about the descendants of our infantas married into the Wittesbach house, I´ve read Alfons and Louise were seriously attracted firsly and later in love. But Alfons had not a great annual income, just around 51.000 francs per year. So, he stated clearly that Louise´s dowry must be the same amount of money, to guarantee them a good life together ;) Ferdinand of Alençon was not happy being under such a pressure about his daughter´s dowry. And the duke of Nemours, Louise´s grandfather, was not happy neither.

At this point, it seems that Alençon did rather considerated a wedding between Louise and prince Ferdinand of Coburg. And Alfons was turning his mind to archduchess Maria Dorothea of Coburg, the lady who, later, would be married to Philippe d´Orleans. But, at the end, the dowry of Louise was arranged and the engagedment was announced...

I don't think Sophie played a great deal in her daughter's marriage. Although she did told the groom's mother "my daughter in is your hands now."
