The tidal wave of summer celebrity weddings continues to rise.
While the world waits with baited breath for the Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, perhaps another royal wedding can satisfy our craving for couture.
Prince Nikolaos, second son of Constantine, former king of Greece, is set to marry fashion events planner Tatiana Blatnik later today.
The two will exchange wedding rings on the island of Spetses in an old monastery, where trucks carrying flowers and ornaments have been coming and going all day.
The groom’s father, Constantine, told AP Television, “As you know, in all of these situations, even the last minute you are preparing.”
The impressive list of guests will include Queen Margrethe and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, as well as other members of European royalty. Royalty of a different kind, Elton John, is even rumored to attend the nuptials.
For those of us that have been paying attention, Blatnik, who plans events for fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg, isn’t the only lucky lady to receive an engagement ring this year.
Celebrities like Alicia Keys, Anna Paquin, Katy Perry, and Megan Fox have all been seen sporting a little extra bling this past year. Not to mention Chelsea Clinton’s lavish $3 million affair, which was widely speculated to be as close to a royal wedding as Americans will get.
So it seems there is plenty to quench our insatiable thirst for jewelry and all things weddings this summer. And why not get excited, everyone loves a little sparkle and a happy ending.
