Her first wedding, to Tommy Mottola (see P7), was a bit like a Royal
wedding, as Mariah modelled it on the wedding of their Royal
Highnesses Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Her excuse for using
this wedding as a basis for her own was that she never really had much
interest in weddings as a girl, and she wanted to know what such a
gala affair should be like. Even the tiara she wore, a family
heirloom, was redesigned to look like the Princess's. Her wedding
dress was an ivory-silk duchess satin gown designed by Vera Wang, with
a 8.25 m (27') train and matching satin pumps. The whole affair cost
almost $US0.5M, not including the 1893 sixpence Mariah put in one of
her shoes for luck.
There has not yet been a second wedding, but Mariah is romantically linked
with latin singer Luis Miguel.
