Ciara & Russell Wilson: 13 Wedding Dresses Inspired by Her Gown
R&B singer Ciara surprised the public today with the announcement of her marriage to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Though the two only became engaged back in March of this year, their whirlwind courtship – just over a year – made headlines when the pair revealed they were going to remain abstinent until their wedding day. The duo officially tied the knot at a gorgeous castle venue in Cheshire, England, and though not much is yet known about their nuptials, Ciara and Russell did release a photo via Instagram of their happy walk up the aisle following their “I dos.” “We are The Wilsons!” their caption exclaimed.
While the handsome groom made a statement in Giorgio Armani Made to Measure, the bride stunned in a custom-made Roberto Cavalli gown. Though her dress is definitely one-of-a-kind, future brides can glean some inspiration from her look for their own bridal ensemble. Browse snapshots of similar frocks from recent bridal collections in the slideshow above to get ideas – these gowns include some of the prominent features of Ciara’s design, including the plunging neckline, lace detailing, long sleeves with illusion fabric, daring overskirt, and even the lace-up bodice.
