As if Jessica Simpson didn’t have everything she could possibly want in her life already. She now has the perfect wedding, and the perfect wedding dress. The star just got married, and the watching media generally agreed that the dress was the most perfect it had ever seen.

The famous actress married Eric Johnson in California, and the star-studded reception was a glitzy affair. But most of the talk surrounding the event centered on the amazing dress that Jessica wore.

The dress had many features to commend it, but one of the most striking aspects of the outfit was the fact that it was completely covered in crystals. This touch alone has ensured the item acres of media coverage. It was also a strapless gown, very fashionable for the modern bride.

Jessica was directly involved in the creation of the dress, which was crafted by Caroline Herrera. The exclusive gown has made headlines around the world, and was part of an overall look that saw Jessica wear her hair down, with classic, understated makeup.

The designer also used a more creative and inspired approach for the making of the dress. She has revealed that a painting inspired her inspiration for the design of the dress. This has made the dress even more famous. Jessica Simpson has also been furiously tweeting about the gown, adding to the media frenzy.

Since the wedding, Simpson has been very active on Instagram with pictures from her honeymoon and thoughts on marriage and having children. She has been particularly romantic when writing about her new husband, and it seems that this may well be the perfect match for the movie star, singer and fashion mogul. The star, 34, seems very happy indeed, and it appears that the perfect dress and wedding certainly helped create that happiness.

The celebrity wedding season has truly kicked off, with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tying the knot in Italy at the end of last month. While there are plenty of fantastic details that brides can bring into their own weddings, one of the stand-out elements of their big day was Kim’s gown.

The reality star wore a custom-made Givenchy gown, created for the bride by the designer’s creative director. While the designer of the gown wasn’t a surprise, there were some surprises when it came to the gown itself.
Kim’s gown featured a surprisingly modest high neckline and long lace sleeves. However, this was paired with diamond-shaped cut outs at the waist and a plunging illusion back. The overall look was a sexy update of the much-loved dress worn by Kate Middleton.
For brides looking for their own gown, Kim’s dress can be an inspiration in a few ways. The long lace sleeves are a popular design choice, as is the lace-detailed illusion back. Both of these elements are available in many different designs. The high neck and low back combination is also a great look for brides who want to show some skin but still have some modesty.

It’s one of the celebrity weddings everyone has been waiting for, and it looks like the happy couple were able to keep almost everything under wraps. Actress Halle Berry and actor Olivier Martinez were married last week at a village church in Burgundy. The couple and their 60 guests stayed at the Chateau de Vallery.

The wedding itself is rumored to have been traditional, with a dinner, fireworks, and cake. One thing that hasn’t been made public is what the very pregnant Halle wore. However, one detail that has been leaked is that her dress featured a deeply plunging back.

Choosing Canada Day for their anniversary was the perfect touch for musicians Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger. Although their nuptials were held in France, the two Canadian stars kept their home country at heart.

The couple had hinted that there would be a theme for their wedding. The first photos they’ve released to Hello! have shown that they chose a Gothic theme.

For their wedding, held in a medieval castle near Cannes, they both wore all-black. Avril chose a black tulle gown by Monique Lhuillier, which she paired with a bouquet of black roses and a diamond headband. While Chad kept a clean-cut look, Avril did wear her trademark style of smudged eyeliner.

The couple’s wedding was small, but with 110 guests it certainly isn’t the smallest celebrity wedding of the year. There’s no word whether the guests also donned themed attire, but the party did last for three days!

If you’re looking for your own perfect dress, whether you like the Gothic style Avril wore this month or prefer the traditional style she chose for her first wedding, come by our Ontario bridal shop today!

If you want to wear the same dress Elizabeth Taylor wore for the first of her weddings, now is your chance. The pearl-encrusted satin gown is up for auction at Christie’s in London this week.

The dress itself was designed by costume designer Helen Rose for Taylor’s 1950 wedding to Conrad “Nicky” Hilton Jr. It is a satin gown and is encrusted with seed pearls. It also includes a built-in corset.

Taylor and Hilton’s wedding was considered one of the biggest social events of the era, with MGM saying it would have “more stars than there are heaven.” The wedding — and her dress — were photographed extensively.

Of course, all of this history comes with a big price tag. The auction estimate for the gown is £30,000 to £50,000 ($48,000 to $80,000).

Although their wedding day may have been put back by a few months while she recovered from a preventative double mastectomy, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt haven’t stopped planning. The wedding, now set for mid-July, has also had a lot of input from the couple’s children.

While Angelina had originally thought of wearing a black maxi dress for an informal wedding, her kids insisted on a movie-style wedding. The result is that the bride will now be wearing a $400,000 gown designed by Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane.

The final choice of dress wasn’t just a collaboration between bride and designer, though. Angelina’s daughters helped pick out the perfect design for their mom.

The couple’s exact wedding date won’t be made public — even the guests won’t find out until a few days before — but we’re looking forward to seeing what Angelina’s dress looks like.
