Storyline

The Principality of Monaco, probably the smallest sovereign state in all the world, is home to 4,000 Monegasques and 16,000 other foreign nationals. With her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco, Grace Kelly will not only become the Princess of Monaco, but will also acquire a multitude of other royal titles matching those of her husband. The wedding itself is only one part of the event's festivities, which is to be a celebration of arts, culture and nationalism in honor of the royal couple. The planning and execution must be perfect in the eyes of the Monegasques. The flowers adorning the celebration will include a newly bred carnation called the Princess Grace. The day before the wedding, the bride arrives in Monaco aboard the SS Constitution, which is met by the Prince aboard his yacht. In port, they are met by a throng of well wishing onlookers. A smaller civil ceremony, which follows strict protocols of the royal house and which is held at the Royal Palace, is completed on April ... Written by Huggo

Wedding in Monaco, The (1956)

** (out of 4)

Promotional short showing the wedding of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco. We get to see how everything was set up, the beautiful ship, the beautiful countryside and various other beautiful things. I was scratching my head throughout this 33-minute documentary because they're trying to throw the spotlight on Kelly and Rainier yet they appear to just be showing how wonderful it is to be rich. Nothing here rings true while watching it and I must say that it almost seemed like people were staging all the action just to make sure it came off looking "perfect" for the camera. The narrator, unknown, is also almost overbearing as he keeps going on and on and on about how great everything thing. I'm sure fans of the beautiful Kelly will want to tune in but sadly she's not in the film enough to really warrant sitting through the entire thing. She's certainly more beautiful than anything else in the pic so the director would have been wise just keeping the camera on her.
