All Greek weddings. It is the custom of the Greek Orthodox Church

Who designed the other dresses, like the ones worn by the flower girls?

I don't know but I am not too fond of them although I did like MC's wedding dress and her bouquet - very original and different....

The bridal gown and the dresses of the flower girls and page boys were all designed by Valentino. Even the evening gown worn by MC on the eve of her wedding and the day dresses she wore to most of the celebration events prior to her wedding.

Personally, i love the wedding gowns and overall designes of Valentino!

Wow, I wonder how much everything costs. Unless Valentino did it for free, like for publicity or something.

I doubt Valentino did anything for free. MC is very wealthy and could afford to pay whatever the price of the dresses were.

I thought MC's dress greatly resembled Grace Kelly's wedding dress when she married Prince Ranier. If someone could do side-by-side photos for comparison, that would be great.

There were 27 courture dresses ordered by the Millers for the wedding festivities (including dresses for Mrs. Miller, Pia, Alexandra and the Greek women). I will try to find the article I read that mentioned that the Millers paid for all of them - cash up front.

Anne-Marie and Alexia didn't wear Valentino gowns. IIRC, they wore Inge Spronson, who designs a lot of Anne-Marie's clothes.

You are right about that. Theodora's dress was Valentino since she was a flower girl.

Those flower girl dresses were ugly. The color was nice but the style and cut had absolute nothing to do with MC's dress. They could have gotten those off the rack at BridesMart and they would have looked the exact same, so why on earth they paid Valentino money for Walmart style is beyond me. If they were determined to do Valentino maids dresses, he could have at least made them have something to do with the bride's dress.

check out the fabulous jewels of Chantal and Alex Miller!
Does anybody know if these were from Harry Winston, Graff, etc?

I agree with Kelly9840 on the dresses of the flower girls - it gave me an impression that too much attention was given to MC's dress (and my personal view is it was a lovely dress) and the designer just sort of threw together some farbric for the flower girls! Another bride that choose Valentino was CP Maxim and the bridemaid and flower girls dresses were lovely!

I think in pictures it really looks like a cauliflower. Sorry if I am a bit rude to anybody's opinion... What I liked best was the lacy veil.

MC's gown wasn't my favourite, and I agree with the flowers. The invitations cost $100 grand alone, they couldn't have come up with better flowers?

I never understood why MC went with such a conservative dress, unless she felt that in taking on the role of Princess she had to show she was made of the right stuff? Or ... something?

Anyhoo, from everything I've ever read of her she seems like a nice enough person, she has a gazillion kids ... seems pretty down to earth.

Did you know she has her own clothing line? Marie Chantal - About To do that, have four kids and be an exiled Princess is quite impressive I think, so I'll forgive her, her terrible wedding dress choice!!!!!

Oh! I also just thought, didn't she have some phenomonal amount of shoes made "just incase" she lost them or ... the dog ate them... or ... she felt like throwing them out the window... or ... something?

Oh and about being wealthy, MC's daddy is a Duty Free gazillionaire. *sigh* oh to have a rich father...

I like her dress. In one article it said that the dress was emulating Princess Grace, and I thought that was interesting. She didn't quite reach the level of Grace's gown, but it was pretty, and it worked for the 90's. It's not my taste (I woudln't wear it), but I see its appeal. The bridesmaids on the other hand in my opion look like they're growing weeds out of their sleeves. ack.

A think all the dresses at the pre wedding party were beautiful. I think Mrs Miller looks even more glamourous than her daughters
