I'm sorry, but the commercialisation of this wedding is not only annoying (for a watcher) but also disgusting.

When Rainier died, in the funeral, Caroline and Stephanie cried a lot, and Albert stayed serious and composed. It's his way of behaving in public, calm and reserved. And they smiled and talked to each other much, much more than William and Kate. I don't remember Kate smiling during the service of this wedding. I don't want to compare this wedding with the British one, but I think a lot of people are doing this since the two weddings occured with just two months apart.
I think Charlene is one of most beautiful princess of all time and she was almost perfect. A missed a pair of earrings and didn't like the make up (too much pink for me), but overall she was stunning. And the pricely family of Monaco is so beautiful! The young generation was perfect! Albert's nephews are so gorgeous! And his nieces are adorable! It was so nice to see Alexandra and Pauline interacting with each other, as well of seeing them and Charlotte and Pauline during the readings.
And all the music played were very beautiful, specially "Ave Maria" sung by Andrea Bocelli.
Actually not only did Catherine smile a lot, she and Prince William frequently faced each other and smiled AT one another, and not just at other people. With that being said, I focus on the wedding today, which was very beautiful and elegant, as was Charlene herself.

Except for the very beginning of the ceremony I watched the entire wedding on CNN, and it was more moving that I had anticipated it was going to be.

At first I did think Charlene looked sad, but then as I watched I realized that she was simply subdued and possibly trying to hold back tears. Andrea Bocelli's 'Ave Maria' was stirring and beautiful, as is almost everything he sings.

IMO all of the Grimaldi women looked beautiful, and I love Princess Caroline's delicate dress. I really enjoyed the readings, I thought it was a heartfelt touch to have all of the family take part. Charlene's father looked especially proud, and I thought her mother looked lovely. It was a beautiful ceremony, and I actually teared up a bit when I saw Charlene crying in the Sainte Dévote church.

As for the paternity test, for some reason I am not surprised, although I am disappointed in Prince Albert. Despite this situation and what it says about Albert's ideas of fidelity to a committed relationship, I hope that now that he is married he will remain faithful to Charlene (and she to him), and that they are able to have a lifelong and happy marriage together.

I don't think it, too. It's an embarrasing fact for her.

I really felt the priest was emphasing fidelity during the ceremony, he also mentioned something about loving all children....so I really hope this ceremony marks the start of Albert being faithful - at least Albert seemed to grasp that these points were directed particularly to him - and that him and Charlene will have a good marriage.

She left her Bridal Bouquet at the Church of St. Devote to honour the patroness of Monaco.

She gave her bouquet to the Sainte Devote as Princess Grace did. When she heard the Maria's beautiful song and at that place no luxury no glittering but a girl and a lady were singing so well and Charlène cries.

Love the pink dress of Mary, and the top of Marie's dress, but not the skirt...

So, did anyone see if Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher and Gerard Butler attended the wedding? I haven't seen any photos of them.

I love CP Mary's dress! I wish we would get better pics soon. I wonder how the "partner swap" was done for the evening dinner.. I suppose it was arranged beforehand or did they just toss business cards in a bowl?

I've got a bit mixed feelings about this wedding. It was a very beautiful occasion but it will take a while to take all this in before commenting properly.

I don't like Mette-Marit's hair.
Mary is gorgeous in pink.
