Grimaldi Weddings

As we gear up for the 'big day' here is a look back at past Grimaldi weddings:

 Princess Grace went the traditional route, setting a standard for style that is still emulated today.

For her (unfortunate) wedding to Philippe Junot, Princess Caroline followed in her mother's footsteps, going for something very "princess-like". Princess Caroline looked like she stepped out of the pages of a fairytale. The Princely parents put on a brave front but (correctly) did not expect the marriage to last.

Finally, Princess Stephanie looked typically stunning at her much more low-key wedding to Daniel Ducruet. She did not go the way of tradition, choosing something much shorter and low-cut for her wedding dress but few could argue that it was much more "her". Princess Stephanie in something traditional and conservative would probably have looked like someone playing dress-up. For her, under the circumstances, non-traditional seemed just the right choice.

  1. Princess Grace wins, no contest, of course.

    Perhaps I ought to do a post on Belgian royal weddings. Ironically given her glamorous reputation, Lilian Baels was the only bride not to have a grand fairytale dress. She was married in a secret ceremony in a simple little black dress, nothing special.
