Happy Anniversary to Charlene and Albert!

Happy July to all of you dear readers, and a very special happy anniversary to Charlene and Albert! Now that the twins are solidly in the toddling years, I hope that the happy couple will get a chance to slip away tonight and celebrate these past six years as husband and wife. I won’t go into excruciating detail over the wedding here, since I’ve done that before (check out the 3-part posts here if you haven’t seen them already!), but I will give some love to a few of the more swoon-worthy fashion moments from their big day.

Didn’t Charlene exude elegance and grace for the wedding? She wore this fitted – shall I say trumpet-style? – gown to the ceremony, and it firmly took everyone’s breath away. The gown drew attention to her tall, slender frame with intricate beadwork that drew the eye upward to her statuesque shoulders.

My favorite part was the cathedral-length veil. I LOVE dramatic veils, particularly with royal brides. Don’t get me wrong, I did love Kate’s fingertip-length veil, but I wished it had been cathedral. Charlene’s was the definition of drama as it cascaded behind her on the long walk to the altar. My only disappointment was the lack of tiara…I had so desperately been hoping for a tiara…

But she wore one for the reception, so all was right with the world! This modern tiara was especially created for Charlene, and is meant to resemble the spray of a crashing wave. Think Ariel on the rock! I loved it. And I’m dying to see it again, so everyone cross your fingers for a tiara-worthy appearance in the next year. (I made this same wish last year, and it didn’t come true. SIGH.)

The dress for the reception was once again Armani, and it was quite the opposite of the ceremony dress. While that one was high on the drama scale with its embroidery and structure, this one was delicate and soft, wispy and dreamy. Both equally elegant, both reflections of different parts of Charlene. I loved the balance of fashion!

Overall, that day was full of love, and it’s a joy to remember it at this time every year. Happy anniversary to the happy couple!

    Her very beautiful wedding dress was a simple sheath-style design, not trumpet-style.

    I wish someone would have put a book out about Albert and Charlene’s wedding. All the books about famous wedding’s that year didn’t even have this wedding in their books.

Speak Your Mind
