It's a Royal Wedding Weekend!

As we gear up for a Royal Wedding, I thought it would be a great time to take a look at all the fun festivities at royal weddings in 18th century France!

PS- Feel free to go into princess / prince-mode this week!

Marie Antoinette attends the wedding of Comte d'Artois, and makes a social (yet lucky) faux pas! #gambling

Did you know Madame du Barry was swept off her feet at the royal wedding of the Comte d'Artois? #itcouldhappentoanyone

Thousands of people traveled to London to see Kate and William get married, same thing happened for Louis and Marie Antoinette's royal wedding! #outsideversailles

Love this tale of how the Duchess of Lauzun and her husband met before their wedding... #deception

Always impressed with the gown Edwige Elizabeth Charlotte Holstein-Gottorp wore to her 1774 wedding. #fashion

Love and life of the Duc de Chartres and Louise Henriette de Bourbon Conti, who had a royal winter wedding. #marriage

Before she was the Princess de Lamballe her future prince tricked her... #Princess

Marie-Louise de Parma shows off her royal wedding gown fit for the spring! #fashion

Read a little about Marie Antoinette's brother and his lady wife, Isabella of Parma. #royalfamily

My collection of images pulled from the amazing recreation of Marie Antoinette and Louis' wedding ceremony for the 2006 film, Marie Antoinette. #marieantoinette #wedding

Love this description of the Royal Wedding day at Versailles, for Marie Antoinette and Louis. From Imbert de Saint-Amand, and Elizabeth Gilbert Martin. 1893. Last years of Louis XV. #quotes

Here is a bit about Marie Antoinette's wedding from a contemporary's point of view. #quotes

Film comparison, how Georgiana's wedding was portrayed in The Duchess and how Marie Antoinette's wedding was portrayed in Marie Antoinette. See any similarities? They were quite different affairs!

Did the Duc de Bourgogne and the Princess Adelaide of Savoy have the most lavish wedding held at Versailles.

They always say things do not always work out perfectly at a wedding, and not to get upset if things go wrong, even if it is the wedding of a dauphine and Dauphin.
