A Little History On Weddings In Monaco


Since we're approaching the week before the Royal Wedding, I thought this may be a good time to post this article.  Monaco is the home of one of history’s most beloved love stories; the romance of Prince Rainier III and American cinema’s most famous actresses of all time, Grace Kelly. Start your love story in the most historically romantic atmosphere of all time.
Monaco’s famous gardens are a great atmosphere for a wedding. Princess Grace Rose Garden is encompassed by over 4,000 Rose Trees in more than 150 varieties. The Japanese Garden is another renowned site known for surrounded with waterfalls, ponds, bamboo fences, a tea house, stone lanterns, tiles and wooden gates made in Japan.
If you desire to be married in a church choose from the beautifully historically-filled churches for the ceremony. The Monaco Cathedral built in 1875 stands of the site of the 13th century church dedicated to Saint Nicolas. Its white stone walls are the resting place of Princess Grace as well as the former Princes. Wed in the elegant Church of Saint-Charles built in the French Renaissance style. This church is decorated with 19 stained glass windows with glistening chandeliers above that came from the former armory of the Prince’s Palace and now the Throne room.
There is plenty of entertainment if you are bringing a group with you to celebrate your wedding. The wedding party will have a blast in the famous Monte Carlo built in 1878, and marvel at the surreal structure paved in marble and surrounded by 28 onyx columns. Try your luck in the infamous Monte Carlo Casino featuring stained glass windows, remarkable sculptures, luminous paintings, bronze lamps and of course all of the gambling your wallet can handle.
Rejuvenate your wedding party in one of the spas. The world-famous Montecarlospa has been long-considered as Europe’s most beautiful spa and is known for its sea water treatments, therapeutic massages and state-of-the-art amenities. Try some proven beauty rituals from ancient remedies; the breath-taking view of the sparkling Mediterranean will soothe your soul at Les Cinq Mondes.
Explore the Mediterranean in a unique way; underwater. Aquavision is 55-minute boat trip holding up to 120 people, and allows you to observe the coast’s seabed in a magical way. Soak up the history and visit its museums where you can observe historical sites like The Prince’s Palace and see the vibrant colors of the Throne room and the Italian-style Gallery or see the Prince’s private collection of classic cars including the 1986 Lamborghini Countach, and the 1952 Rolls Royce. Visit the Monte Carlo Opera House, home of the some of the world’s most creative performances including, Franck's "Hulda" (1894) and "Ghisele" (1896), and Bizet's "Don Procopio" (1906)
Monaco is the combination of serenity, history, beauty, and entertainment. For an enchanting wedding and an unforgettable trip, get married here and start your romance like royalty.
