Royal Weddings - Princess Grace Kelly

January 27, 2011

In anticipation of the upcoming British Royal wedding, I am enjoying photos of royal weddings past and plan to share some of them with you during the upcoming months. This entry is for 'vintage' lovers and those who appreciate timeless beauty and grace.

For the too young to know among us, Grace Kelly (November 12, 1929 – September 14, 1982) was a talented American actress of considerable influence who ended her prolific Oscar-winning, acting career in 1956 at the age of 26 when she married her Prince - Rainier III of Monaco.

Princess Grace's bridal headpiece . . .

Princess Grace's gown was made of 25 yards of silk taffeta, 98 yards of silk tulle, and 300 yards of Valenciennes lace.

Below is an excerpt from the MGM recreation of their wedding ceremony. . .

I hope some of you enjoyed a glimpse of this real fairy-tale. . .
