Victoria Swarovski's Wedding Dress Had 500,000 Crystals On It, Obviously

Posted -

Ahh, weddings...Most of us dream about our special day, picking out every detail from our color scheme to dress shape before we even meet our future spouse. Well, the Swarovski gemstone heiress and singer, Victoria Swarovski, just put all of our fairytale wedding dreams to shame with her three-day wedding celebration and marriage to long-time boyfriend, Werner Mürz. 

The jaw-dropping event took place in Italy this weekend, and was just as extravagent as we would expect from the Swarovski family. The wedding celebrations kicked off with a "pasta and love" welcome dinner, after which 250 people witnessed the couple exchange vows in a cathedral near Trieste, Italy. All of it was followed by a glam-filled reception at a five-star resort in Portopiccolo called Hotel Falisia, according to Daily Mail. The wedding weekend ended with a farewell brunch hosted the morning after the big night. 

Despite her actual events being everything of our wedding dreams, her ceremony dress really stole the show. Being one of three dresses the stunning bride wore throughout the night, it featured 500,000 crystals and a six-meter long train. Wow! People reports the dress was a "custom couture wedding gown by Dubai-based designer Michael Cinco that featured all-over Swarovski crystals, paillettes and laser-cut flowers. It was a classic princess A-line style, featuring an opulent skirt and a sheer bodice covered in delicate appliqués along the neckline and sleeves.” Can I have the same thing for my wedding but without the $1 million pricetag? 

The wedding (and the dresses) all were incredibly stunning, and the happy couple is now honeymooning in St. Tropez, France. I'll take the exact same wedding, please and thank you!
