When Céline Dion married René Angélil in 1994, it was categorized as a fairytale wedding and every detailed part of it was handled to perfection. 


Céline Dion's wedding dress has been the subject of talk ever since the French Canadian Singer married her Music Producer, a man she met when she was 12 and he was 38.


Dion's wedding gown went down in fashion history as being one of the most gorgeous of all time, even rivaling Princess Diana's. 

The silk creation was designed by Mirella and Steve Gentile and reportedly took 1,000 hours to make. The dress comprised of French lace and ninety yards of Italian silk. Each pearl was hand-sewn.


The $25,000 dress, with its body fitting bodice and full bodied skirt, boasted a twenty-foot train, and to top off the extravagance, Dion coupled it with a massive seven-pound tiara made of 2,000 Austrian crystals.

The gown certainly made her look like a princess on her big day, and the marriage would last twenty-one years before Angélil finally succumbed to cancer, leaving Dion alone with their three sons.


Céline, who always maintained that her husband was the only man she had ever kissed, has not rushed into any romance since Angélil's death in 2016 at the age of seventy-three.

She has been linked to other men since her husband's death, but none that have publicly moved past the platonic friendship stage.

Tongues have wagged recently over her relationship with a backup dancer named Pepe Munoz who is reportedly just a close friend of the singer.

At Paris Fashion Week this year, Dion was seen crying to a song that was reportedly played at her wedding. It was also the three-year-anniversary of Angélil's death.
