Wow, it's very interesting to see how the wedding dress was created!
Both Grace and her wedding dress are fantastically beautiful!
Having seen the photos, I realised that she was the most beautiful bride in the XX century!!!!). Thanks for posting them!)))

The more I view this thread, the more I agree! I normally prefer a plain dress with possibly a somewhat ornate Veil (such as Maxima's) but the style of Grace's dress and that magnificient veil, have won me over!!!

Besides, I am from the Philadelphia area as well!!!

Has anyone taken a cruise on the Deo Juvante? I see that the yacht has been renamed the MY Grace and is available to book for tours through the Galapagos. Wouldn't that be the coolest thing? There's also some great videos linked on M/Y Grace Galapagos Islands Cruise.

Princess Grace was a very beautiful bride. I noticed that the colour of her wedding dress is cream, not white. Thank you everyone for the photos.

I think the fabric must have certainly yellowed over time, as with most delicate fabrics. This is one of the reasons the Philadelphia Museum of Art no longer has the dress on permanent display.

Thank you to all that posted pictures of this wonderful wedding.I was young when it happenend but I still remember vividly, all the hullaballoo before the ceremony, when Grace and her family were coming to Monaco by ship and then the marvelous ceremonial. She was indeed a beautiful bride.

Beautiful video.Watching Grace´s life is like seeing a fairy tale..

Grace was the most beautiful bride ever seen .Some guests of her wedding said, that she looked so perfect,so beautiful,that she was not real ,she was just as an apparition ,so ethereal....

Whisking her away

The Quasar Expeditions page has the black & white news footage of the Prince meeting Grace Kelly on board the USS Constitution to take her to Monaco for the wedding.

This thread is sheer bliss. She was a flawless bride and her gown was breathtaking.

I think she is the most beautiful bride ever seen and her wedding dress was stunningIt is a pity most royal Houses did not go to this wedding,because she was rejected for being an actress

The royal houses did not go the wedding because the Monaco Princely family were not considered having the same royal status, not because Grace Kelly was an actress.

I disagree with you.The main reason was that Grace was an actress,if she would have been an aristocrat or a princess,all would be different....

Actually i think it was by both reasons. The Grimaldis are not considered as great royals, but an aristocratic minority (i don't agree with that by the way) and the fact that the reing prince was marrying an actress, a commoner...
But Grace was more royal than anyone in her time

I also read that it wasn't just because that some considered the Grimaldis nobility, but also because they were known to be scandal-prone and dysfunctional bunch.
