One year ago I woke up way too early to sip champagne and watch Kate and William's Royal Wedding. As inspiring as it was, and yes I may have gone into princess mode for a week or a few.... let's take a look at all the fun happenings for Royal Weddings in the 18th century!

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.
