Today’s royal wedding of billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump and a European fashion model Melania Knauss stands out as the high point of the high-society season.
The couple went through the motions yesterday during an afternoon rehearsal at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, before retiring to a low-key gathering at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club. More than 300 guests are expected at the royal “almost private” royal wedding ceremony, including stars from Hollywood, famous politics and sportsmen.
"This is the biggest frenzy," said owner Sami Alpark, who sold one-of-a-kind dresses for up to $26,000. "And that's in a town where there is a black-tie gala every night."
