Ciara officially tied the knot with football player Russell Wilson on July 6, and now the star is revealing the details of her white lace wedding dress.
According to Pret-A-Reporter, Ciara walked down the aisle in a custom Roberto Cavalli Couture gown personally designed by the fashion house’s creative director Peter Dundas.
The site revealed this week that Ciara tied the knot with her footballer beau in a stunning white gown, which featured “silk tulle embroidered with floral motif and delicate glass beading covered with Chantilly lace applique.”
Ciara’s wedding dress also featured a deep plunging neckline with a white lace-up bodice and trumpet lace sleeves.
Ciara showed off the stunning gown on Instagram shortly after the ceremony, which took place in Liverpool, England, posting a shot of herself and Wilson at the end of the aisle and announcing to the world, “We are The Wilsons!”
Dundas also confirmed his involvement with the gown’s design on the social media site, re-posting the image to his official Instagram account and describing Ciara as being a “fairytale princess bride.”
“Congratulations my dear friend Ciara and Russell Wilson,” Dundas captioned the photo. “Looking like a fairytale princess bride in #CavalliCouture #NicestCouple #LoveYouForeverC #MrandMrsWilson.”
But it wasn’t just Ciara who had all the fashion fun on her big day.
Pret-A-Reporter also reported that Russell was decked out in designer duds for the wedding, sporting a Giorgio Armani tuxedo that adorably matched Ciara’s son, Future Wilburn Jr.’s, ensemble.
According to the site, Future Jr. wore a custom Armani Junior tuxedo to see his mom and Wilson tie the knot.
The site also revealed the big fashion details on what Ciara’s eight bridesmaids wore to complement her wedding dress, reporting that the singer and model turned to Michael Costello to design custom looks for the lucky ladies.
In an email exchange, the designer revealed that he was actually inspired to design looks for Ciara’s bridesmaids based on the numerous fashion-forward gowns he designed for Ciara to wear while co-hosting the 2016 Billboard Music Awards with Ludacris back in May.
“Every girl’s individual style is implemented in the design of their dress, as well as their personality,” Costello told Pret-A-Reporter of the bridesmaids gowns, which Ciara and Russell are yet to share a glimpse of on social media. “Ciara made sure of that,” Costello continued, telling the site that “it was a pleasure to be a part of her special day with Russell.”
The designer also revealed that his eight designs all complemented Ciara’s wedding dress, were made of black silk satin, and featured their own individual silhouettes custom to the bridesmaid he was dressing.
According to claims made by Us Weekly following the ceremony, Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams, and La La Anthony were all members of the bridal party.
Back in 2014, while still engaged to rapper Future, Ciara posed in several wedding dresses for the cover of Brides magazine, where she revealed what kind of wedding dress she was looking for for her big day.
“My everyday style is what I call ‘tomboy chic,’ but for my wedding, I’m going to do elegance with a little edge,” Ciara told the bridal magazine at the time.
Though Ciara and Future never married, she did reveal to the magazine that the decision to allow her bridesmaids to wear different styles on her wedding day has always been her plan.
“There will be five or six and two matrons of honor,” Ciara revealed of her wedding party in 2014, shortly before she and Future called of their wedding and around a year before she began dating Wilson. “They’ll all wear the same color, but in different styles to suit their personalities. I want my ladies to look amazing!”
