Grace Kelly's second wedding dress – few know about her second bridal ensemble


Her main dress, which she wore to wed in a cathedral, was made by costume designer Helen Rose. The two women went way back, as Rose worked with Kelly on many costumes during her Hollywood career.

This dress is the one that went down in history, but Kelly wore another incredibly chic design for her first wedding.

Before she wed in the cathedral the pair also had a civil ceremony.

In Monaco, it is customary to have the legal element of a wedding and the religious element on a wedding separately.

One day ahead of her wedding in the cathedral Kelly wed the prince in Monaco’s palace.

The ever-chic Kelly wore another ensemble also designed by Rose.

The reason so few know about this first wedding ensemble is the fact Kelly did not wear it out in public.

The civil ceremony was a relatively quiet affair, make the church ceremony the element of the wedding most remember.

Grace Kelly’s wedding dress was among the most expensive of all time, alongside Kate Middleton’s.

Duchess of Cambridge’s dress ranks sixth among the top 10 priciest celebrity wedding dresses at £386,146.

Grace’s dress would cost an astronomical £441,478 today making it the second most expensive celebrity gown on the list.

Fit for a royal bride, Grace Kelly’s engagement ring is known to be a 10.48-carat emerald cut diamond. 

This ring, however, was a replacement for her original engagement ring.

First Ranier gave the actress a ring filled with diamonds and rubies, a not to Monaco’s flag.

The ring was described in the Philadelphia Inquirer as “a handsome engagement ring, which the Prince had ordered fashioned from two family heirlooms, in the form of a diamond circlet and ruby circlet intertwined.”
