Princess Diana’s ‘Wedding of Century’ to be displayed at exhibition in Las Vegas

The attraction features 12 curated rooms including “Wedding of Century,” where couples can actually tie the knot among thoughtfully chosen artefacts from Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ 1981 nuptials, including a dramatic recreation of Diana’s bridal gown. The wedding package features a ceremony and private dinner inside the room.

All visitors to the exhibit will get the chance to see the life-size replica of the iconic wedding dress made out of paper by Belgian artist and sculptor Isabelle de Borchgrave.

Curator of Princess Diana: A Tribute Exhibition, David Corelli, told PEOPLE: “Over 120,000 weddings are performed in Las Vegas each year, it has become the marriage capital of the world.

“So, here we have the ultimate room showcasing artefacts and mementos from the most famous wedding of all time.

“And we thought, why not create something uniquely special for people to celebrate their love that you can only get here in Vegas?”

The exhibition was created in partnership with Pink Ribbons Crusade, a charity sharing its collection of royal memorabilia to raise funds to fight breast cancer.

Tickets are on sale now for the exhibit, which opens on September 2.

In addition to including antique lace from Queen Mary as Princess Diana’s “something old”, the wedding dress also included a blue bow inside the bodice as the bride’s “something blue.”

Diana put a hidden good luck charm on her dress, too: an 18-carat gold horseshoe trinket studded with white diamonds.

According to Royal Style in the Making exhibit curator Matthew Storey, the team put scraps of fabric that were not used on the actual dress in the garbage in case any members of the press went looking for clues.

When July 29, 1981, finally arrived, Princess Diana arrived at St. Paul’s Cathedral wearing the voluminous ivory ball gown with a sparkling veil.
