Princess Diana Wedding Dress Exhibit Debuts In Minnesota's Mall Of America (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The Princess Diana wedding dress has finally gone up in the Mall of America -- but don't worry, it's not for sale.

That famous David and Elizabeth Emanuel-designed gown, which features 10,000 mother-of-pearl sequins and pearls and a 25-foot train, debuts as part of the "Diana: A Celebration" exhibit in Bloomington, Minn., which will run from Feb. 4 through June 10. The voluminous dress arrived at the mall on Wednesday, where handlers took care to steam the long train and you know, not rip it or anything.

FYI, Di also had a backup wedding gown in case the design of the first one had leaked.

In addition to the poufy bridal gown from Diana's 1981 wedding to Prince Charles, the traveling exhibit includes 28 of Diana's designer dresses (hopefully including some of these!), family heirlooms and personal keepsakes like home movies and photos.

Lady Di would have been proud.

Check out pics below of the dress being carefully unveiled below! If you're in the Minnesota area, click over to CBS to find out how to score tickets to see the Diana exhibit in person.
