Albert looked like crap at his wedding. I am definitely not a fan of men getting married in white.

Highlights of the dinner and ball!..I loved Tucci's singing 'Ti Amo'
It had a very mediterranean feel to it.

Yeah, not a fan of him in white, but at least he looked better than he did at Victoria and Daniel's wedding, IMO.

I didn't see a picture of him there. BTW does anyone have a good picture of Charlene's bouquet? I am doing a comparison and contrast between the brides, and I need a pic of Char's bouquet.

Embarrassingly poor taste. Maybe to send a message that "all is well." Here comes the bride in her off the
shoulder bathrobe Why is this necessary? Horrible PR choice. The only wife of a sovereign prince posing for photos like this is Charlene. No one in Lichtenstein or Luxembourg (two other small countries) would consent to their new princess doing this, or any other country that I can think of. Yes Monaco is all about the glamour and luxurious living. Not tacky living.

Wow. That's, ummmm, an unusual choice for a royal fiancee. Would have thought that the palace would have steered her away from something like this.

The problem is that the palace might have been the one who staged the entire thing ... They would have had absolute control over the production, media coverage, and public relations.

I agree, Charlene does not have years of PR experience like Grace Kelly did. IMO Charlene is taking bad advice. Must be difficult to know what to do when people you trust don't have the best suggestions.

Thank you NGalitzine, angela, and burnt for these wonderful links!

The last one in particular is my favorite, actually felt like one was right there amongst the spectacular fireworks, sitting amongst guests when the couple was serenaded, as well as presented with that fabulous cake, and finally when the princely couple took to the dance floor.

So good to see Caroline laughing with Grand Duke Henri, and Stephanie smiling beside The King of the Belgians. :) And also, once again (just like at Victoria & Daniel's pre-concert) Albert singing along with the band. Btw, you know when Albert truly enjoys something, he makes this little fist pump with both of his hands. As well as his trademark winks & kisses here & there.

And when it came time for their first dance as husband & wife, what better place then on the water, which is what it appeared to be, with the opulence & splendor of the Opera Garnier all about them! Whilst in the background stood all the illustrious guests looking on fondly (Bea, Pierre's girlfriend, even shedding a few tears). Next came Mrs. Wittstock escorted by the dashing Chris Levine, as well as a host of other splendidly dressed guests. Truly, the stuff of dreams, which they can all look back on fondly in the years to come...

you do not need years of pr experience to know that this is tacky, looks like an advertisement for a cheap Spa and other things come to mind which are unmentionable.

I love the beadwork on this dress and the length of the train but I feel that the veil should have been much higher up and further forward.

Well, things are very different in Monaco... I remember tatooed Princess Stephanie in the late 80s sunbathing topless with tennis star Boris Becker.
Nothing against bathing topless - but for a princess...

There's certainly a likeness between Louis and his uncle when Albert was that age. I noticed that myself.

He's a handsome young man and dare I say it, though no insult intended, better looking than his Casiraghi male cousins imo.

Stephanie was SOOO PROUD arriving in the religious wedding in her son's arm. I felt very touched.
Louis is a very handsome young man, and Pauline is stunnning, and perfectly groomed.

Stephanie's children are really her success!!

Is Chris Levine the brother of late Grace Levine, who was Caroline's bestwoman(????) at her wedding with Junot, on 1978!

Strong family bonds, after 33 years.

They really are!

And though only an impression from photo's, her children don't appear at all haughty. I may very well be wrong but they seem as though they would be pleasant and well mannered people.

Well, they are after all cousins. Chris and Grace are/were the children of Lizanne Kelly Levine. Grace's sister.

Have you noticed at the wedding, that the "Casiraghis" never smile when being photographed? Well, they´re no Royals, so this is not part of their "job discription", but this behaviour makes them seem very aloof and arrogant.
