A Chance for a Royal Wedding Toast… For SERIOUS, People!

November 16, 2009 at 3:06 pm 3 comments

Wedding-Toast-2As part of wedding tradition, many brides and grooms will be met by several raised glasses and hearty cheers on their big day, and more often than not, each one is accompanied by a swig of champagne (yum!)  So, why not go for gusto and toast with Princess Diana’s 1961 Dom Perignon champagne from her wedding day?

You heard me.  The champagne – originally used at Princess Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles – is a 1961 vintage, selected in honor of the GORGEOUS bride’s birth year and is currently being prepared for the highest bidder!  (Please note, “gorgeous” is done in all caps for emphatic vigor, as I still believe Princess Diana was, is and always will be one of the most painstakingly beautiful people to grace the world with her enormous presence!)

According to James Grinter of the Reeman Dansie auction house, this champagne is not only an incredibly unique find because it was part of the Royal Wedding, but it also was “a strictly limited release and even rarer to find it still sealed in its original box.”

Seven years after the timeless beauty married England’s heir to the throne, Diana gave it to Brian Ames, manager of London’s infamous department store – Harrods, as a 50th birthday present.  Set to be auctioned off later this month in Colchester, the bottle is suspected to go for £1,200 (or approximately $2000), and I know at least one gal who’ll be all over this… Carolyn, I wish you the best of luck – hehe!

And no matter who wins (or loses) this vintage classic, I still think everyone deserves a toast with the most on their wedding day!  So, here’s to you, all my beautiful brides and grooms out there, and cheers to many, many years of happiness!

I mean seriously, did the woman take a bad photograph… ever???  Simply GORGEOUS!

    Would it be considered bad luck to use champagne from a divorced couples wedding? I’m just saying… LOL :D

    As for paragraph 2… are you still trying to win over Price William with your declaration of how GORGEOUS and inspirational his mother was? Hehe:)
