October 5, 2009
Another great royal wedding party. Princess Grace's gown was designed and made by the movie studio that she left behind to marry Prince Rainier. Helen Rose of MGM Studios created the gown. Also, MGM won the film rights to movie reels of the wedding.
The princess' bride's maids wore matching gowns in true 1950's style. The bouquets, unlike that of Princess Grace were of a very traditional "colonial" style, nosegays of what appear to be rose buds circled with lace collars. Grace's bouquet, well, a classic and understated arrangement of Lily of the Valley carried on what I assume is a prayer book. I love the look of this wedding and it's demurely elegant flowers.
Royal Wedding Tidbit of the day... During their engagement, Prince Rainier gifted Grace Kelly with a piece of jewelry every day leading up to their wedding on April 19, 1956 in Monaco.
