Charlene didn't go - I think there was something about staying with the twins I read on a site somewhere. Albert was apparently at an IOC meeting (which I find weird but anyway...).I don't know if Charlene even attended the civil ceremony, I haven't seen any pics.

For all the elegance and beauty of these earrings, were it me I would never use the jeweller again. Style and element information is okay but the cost of a bespoke piece of jewellery should remain between them and the customer, not the media.

MARG , I agree with you .
Why should Princess Carlibe give Kochert earrings she never wore before ,and not even by Princess Grace.

Are we sure they were bespoke earrings? In the jewellery website they look like part of their ready collection which is available to anyone.
Most items, including the ones chosen for Beatrice, have the price published for online customers. Others don't, probably as the price depends on the choice of the stone which can be customised and change the cost. Looks like Princess Caroline has chosen an item already available online and with a published price.

Because they were a gift - why is it unusual that she should commission a new pair of earrings for a wedding gift?

Florestane , I was wrong ,I thought Köchert was an old jewelry Shop but they still sell modern jewels.
If you click on Kochert, you find the earrings with pictures and price (13.500 euros).

Gad seems like not taking much attention to Charlotte.

Boths sides, as the italian culture requires?
Maybe not.

I think Albert and Caroline paid for the celebrations at the Palace...Albert's staff of course created the menu and the beautiful floral arrangements at the Palace. In the morning I read that Beatrice's mother hosted a breakfast and of course in the evening there was a dinner at the Hotel de Paris hosted by Princess Caroline. She can well afford to have foot the bill for that one.

In the Borromean Isles, Beatrice's family probably paid for everything.

That's what I think too: each family paid the bill for the wedding that took place in their country.

I agree that the Monaco - Montecarlo part of the wedding was probably 100% or so funded by Grimaldi and there is no problem there.
Borromeo family: the bride has not much personal money (except the income as journalist / contributor that can vary a lot depending on experience and popularity), everything she's done so far has been funded by someone else (studyng, high life, dresses) and she not a large heiress as her father is a minor member of the Borromeo family as discussed previously. In addition she has another 3 sisters and a brother.
The Borromeo family may have given as present the use of their property venues (Islet of San Giovanni and Castello di Angera). But being that the Borromeo owner is the uncle of the bride and he has already offered hospitality to her sisters weddings in the other islands, I would not expect that he has covered the expenses of the bride, honestly.
We also need to remember the bill of the hotels for guests, Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees and Hotel Majestic.
Let's come to the Marzottos then. In Italy normally the family of the bride covers the wedding dress. In this case Beatrice had several wedding and function dresses. There is the possibility that she did not pay for all of them, that she lent some of them and the designers got publicity in return.
I read somewhere that the whole bride's family was dressed by Armani. I don't think that Giorgio Armani would be happy to dress up the whole Marzotto party for free as he does not need to this, but who knows?
Some branches of the Marzotto family are affluent and successfull, others aren't.
There has been a serious breach between Marzotto family members following the recent tax scandal and other company issues. I tend to believe that those who are seriously rich and successfull stay away from the spotlight, and they are those who did not appear in any picture of the wedding. Those who need media attention are also good in keeping up appearances, but who knows really? :)
Hence my curiosity
