Wedding bells were ringing yesterday in Monaco for Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo. The couple that has been dating since May 2008 announced their engagement last March and are to have a religious ceremony next week in the Borromean Islands which, as the name suggests, are owned by Beatrice’s family.

For the occasion, the bride chose a Valentino Haute Couture wedding gown designed by Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (Unlike Princess Madeleine’s wedding dress that was designed by Mr. Valentino himself).

Beatrice Borromeo wedding dress

Beatrice Borromeo’s wedding dress is made in pale pink and gold lace silk chiffon. As hard to get as photos from the wedding are, the royal wedding doesn’t seem to have been so private after all as Monaco Matin has photos from the bash in today’s issue, with one on the cover.

Guests of the wedding include all of the Grimadli clan, with Prince Albert and Princess Charlene in the lead. So it wouldn’t be too hard to believe that Princess Charlene wore Valentino for the Red Cross Ball last night as a compliment to the bride’s Italian roots. Especially since Beatrice’s uncle, Count Matteo Marzotto, is the former president and director of the Valentino fashion house.

From what I can see, I really like this dress, it’s elegant and effortless and the pink works like magic on Beatrice’s complexion. I also love the purple flowers in her wavy hair and natural makeup.

Beatrice had another Valentino Haute Couture wedding gown for the night gala, this time a sleeveless ball gown with hand-painted blue parts all over it. You can see it in this video

So what do you think of the wedding dress of Beatrice Borromeo?
