Celebrity nuptials are kind of a big deal in the wedding world. These events are covered minute-to-minute by the entertainment press and every last detail is discussed, analyzed and drooled over by reporters and fans alike. Celebrities have the unlimited funds to truly create the weddings that dreams are made of, and we see ripples of what stars do for their weddings in brides’ desires for their own weddings for months (and sometimes even years) afterwards. Unless you’ve been living under a rock – or have just been busy living your life and planning your own wedding – you probably heard that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married this weekend in Florence, Italy, in an extravagant, star-studded affair.
|Oh my stars! We are seriously in love with that incredible wall of flowers.|
While we’ll all have to wait to see better photos to appreciate the full gorgeousness of Kim’s spectacular Givenchy wedding gown, we do have a few details to share. Kim’s custom lace Givenchy Haute Couture was designed by Riccardo Tisci and featured long sleeves and illusion panels on the sides and along the sleeves. And dramatic backs have been all the rage for a while, but this back – oh, this back! – is, in a word, stunning. And that train and that veil! Simply breath-taking!
|Phenomenal gown back – love the drama!|
So before you dive back into the grind of your workweek, take a moment to indulge in a bit of bridal eye candy first. Enjoy!
