Description: A wedding is supposed to be a fairy-tale culmination of romance and a guarantee of lifelong love and happiness. History, however, has painted a very different portrait for those thrust onto the world's stage by wealth, power, or celebrity.

The World's Most Unforgettable Weddings is an insightful look into weddings throughout the ages that fill us with longing because of their romance and beauty, and others that shock us by their extravagance:
-- Eddie Murphy's wedding was the most opulent in the history of New York City's Plaza Hotel. The cake alone cost $25,000.
-- Designer Diane Von Furstenburg's son, a prince, married the daughter of a Hong Kong billionaire in a three-day affair said to have cost $4 million.
-- Princess Diana's billowing taffeta gown reportedly cost over $300,000.

Earlier marriages changed the course of history:
-- Anne Boleyn's marriage to Henry VIII sparked the Reformation.
-- Marie Antoinette's marriage to the future Louis XVI ignited the French Revolution.

The World's Most Unforgettable Weddings makes one fact evident: Weddings have not changed through the ages. Whether for sex, dollars, or dominance, or just for the glory of love, they lead us to believe that maybe "for one brief shining moment" there is a Camelot.
