Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the union of superstars Ciara and Russell Wilson in holy and highly fashionable matrimony! Not only was the venue of their wedding this past weekend amazing (in Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England no less) but the fashion was amazing. Nothing less could be be expected of Ciara who has always been a bit of a clothes horse and is sample size. She has even improved Russell’s own sense of style it seems.
Their sense of fashion was not lost anywhere in their wedding celebrations. Their pre-wedding dinner, Ciara as the bride, wore a long white gown while Russell wore a traditional dinner tuxedo.
On the actual wedding day, Ciara looked like vision in white wearing a wedding dress created in Milan by the creative director of Roberto Cavalli, Peter Dundas. Rumor is that it took multiple fittings for this one of a kind couture gown so you know Ciara must have felt like royalty! Her shoes were designed by Giuseppe Zanotti. All in all, she looked as happy as we hope she is. Russell is not to be left out as he chose Giorgio Armani to outfit him, his father in law and step-son in custom suits. GQ Magazine got photos of Russell at his fitting at the Armani boutique in Beverly Hills. Future Zahir looked so cute!
The difference between Ciara’s last relationship with the father of her son (rapper Future) and this one with Russell Wilson is clear in how they present themselves. They wear more tailored and classy clothes while at the same time keeping a certain level of modesty. The tuxedos of the men in the wedding party are proof that Ciara has turned a page in her life personally and fashion-wise as well. She maintains her sexy but isn’t as “trendy” in her choices.
Have you ever seen bridesmaids dresses that looked frumpy or poorly made? Well, Ciara made sure her bridesmaids were the epitome of wedding fashion by having designer Michael Costello create custom dresses for each lady to match their tastes. These included Matron of Honor Yolonda Fredrick-Thompson along with Lala Anthony (a former MTV VJ), Erica Ashe, Jamaica Craft, Hanna Isaksson, Kelly Rowland (formerly of Destiny’s Child), Sabena Toor, and Russell’s little sister Anna Wilson. It was really sweet of Ciara to include Russell’s sister (although she may have felt she had to).
Although guests were banned from taking photos at the wedding and reception, one guest took pictures of herself and her family BEFORE the wedding. Jennifer Hudson made sure she showed off her beautiful dress and her fiance and her son for Instagram. Not sure if Ciara would have approved of Jennifer stealing her thunder on her big day .
