The extravagant lifestyle of Marie Antoinette is legendary so it's no surprise to discover that her wedding day was suitably lavish. She was still only a teenager when she walked down the aisle in an opulent gown decorated with diamonds and pearls in May 1770. A staggering six thousand guests attended the reception in the famous Hall of Mirrors at the grand Palace of Versailles. That was followed by a wedding ball that took place in the Opera theatre, which had been specially built for the royal wedding. As a wedding gift, her husband spared no expense in redesigning the Petit Trianon, a retreat built at the Palace of Versailles, for his new wife. Wedding planners say that Marie Antoinette's famous love of all things opulent and indulgent means that the style of her wedding is still one of the most popular for brides today, who want to feel like a queen for a day.
