Does anyone know what happened to Princess Grace's Wedding Dress? Is it now in a Museum?

I think she donated it to the Phillidelphia Art Museum. They only bring it out every 5 years because it is made of 150 year old Belgian lace.

Update:

The following link sheds more light on ALL the Grimaldi Tiaras, along with some wonderful pics and info. :) ENJOY! The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Monaco

Now I honestly don't know what she'll wear or what jewels, if any, she will be outfitted in. And I find I like it like that, there should be an air of mystery, just as when Cinderella entered the ballroom and time stood still for a moment, an awe-inspiring moment...

Like this (the part at the very end):

Personally, I hope that PA has commissioned a tiara for Charlene as a wedding gift... It's a new era for Monaco, and it would be a very romantic gesture, IMO.

Nicholas Sarkozy (or "Sarko") had better be at the wedding.
France and Monaco still have the strongest of ties, politically and otherwise.

And if Sarko attends, then I bet that Carla will, too.

I've just "imported" a part of the "Charlene Wittstock Current Events Part Ten" thread. Page 35.

It's about two Attendants for Charlene: Donatella Knecht de Massy (PA's cousin), and Isabell Kristensen (clothes designer).

The interviewer - Isabelle Kumar from Euronews - was one of the better ones, I think...

It must be very difficult being 'put on the spot' in an interview. I have to say what a kind and loving man Albert seems to be. Very shy in some cases, but I can see he will be a wonderful support and loving husband to Charlene. Charlene is very fortunate indeed!

Nadine, thank you for your two recent posts - really helpful & a wonderful link. I just can't make up my mind what I think Charlene will wear for both the wedding & pre-wedding gala. A small part of me thinks we may see a new tiara somewhere in the mix.

According to Bunte she is going to wear one of the Grimaldi tiaras at her wedding. If the pre-wedding gala will be a tiara event, I'll be over the moon. But the fact that most of the Grimaldi tiaras are currently at an exhibition in far away Brazil doesn't bode well. Why can't the press find out a bit more about the dress code ?

Actually it was Grace's mother who donated it.
But you are correct that they only display it every few years to prevent deterioration.

I saw it several years ago, along with a dress worn by a bridesmaid and flower-girl.
The dresses were lovely; (the bridesmaid dress was pale yellow).

The dress was in Monaco for the recent exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum, but it returned to Philadelphia before the exhibition came to London. It had been previously restored.
Link to an interesting article about the restoration of the wedding veil.
( sorry moderators if it's a bit off topic!)

Mariage princier - The Wedding Flowers

The great-grandfather of Christian Carlesi-Sorasio did the flowers in 1905. The grandfather did the flowers for Rainier and Grace in 1956.
Now it's Christian's turn to fulfil the order for the Monaco wedding flowers of 2011.

The Prothea and the Casablanca Lily are flowers from South Africa.

A total of 12,000 flowers will be used.

But nobody knows the composition of the bridal bouquet...
