iVillage.com: The Most Extravagant Celebrity Weddings

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil

On Dec. 17, 1994, 26-year-old Celine Dion wed her longtime manager, Rene Angelil, 51, at the opulent Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, Quebec. Legions of fans lined the streets outside the cathedral (the nuptials were broadcast live on Canadian television) to catch a glimpse of the Quebec-born chanteuse, who wore a French marquise gown that reportedly took 1,000 hours to complete, and featured a 20-foot train attended by the bride’s eight sisters. Some say the real star of the wedding was the seven-pound headpiece containing 2,000 Austrian crystals which topped the pop singer’s look. After the wedding mass, artificial snowflakes gently fell on more than 500 guests, who were entertained by a 21-piece orchestra and treated to a massive French profiterole wedding cake in a Christmas tree formation. A silent night, it was not!
