It wasn’t enough forÂ Carrie Underwood to have one custom-designed wedding gown for her wedding to hockey pro, Mike Fisher. Instead, she needed two! For her lavish Southern wedding,Â theÂ American Idol season four champ donned a beautiful ball gown for the ceremony and another designer dress for the reception. Keep reading for all the details on Carrie Underwood’s two wedding dresses…
In a wedding fit for a princess,Â Carrie Underwood tied the knot with her professional hockey player beau, Mike Fisher. For the ceremony, held at a lavish resort in Georgia,Â theÂ American Idol season four champ donned a stunning, one-of-a-kind designer gown custom made by Monique Lhuillier. Later, when she was ready to party, Carrie Underwood traded in the extravagant gown for a fun and flirty cocktail dress, also made by the designer.
â€œ[Carrie] wanted something grand and magical. She wears evening gowns all the time but this had to be really special,â€ Monique Lhuillier tells People magazine about Carrie Underwood’s wedding dress.Â For the nuptials, the celebrity designer crafted a strapless gown with a corseted bodice topped with Chantilly lace and silk flowers and crystals. A blush colored sash tied around the drop waist. The stunning dress took over 400 hours to create and was complemented with a crystal-encrusted veil.
After the wedding, Carrie Underwood changed into something a little more casual and fun for the reception.Â ”The wedding dress was huge,” Carrie Underwood said.Â ”I wanted to get my boogie on, so I had to change.”
Monique Lhuillier designed a second dress for the American Idol star to wear at the reception. â€œFor the party, she said â€˜I want to dance and have funâ€™. I saw she had gorgeous legs so I thought why not show them off?â€ Monique Lhuillier says. The strapless cocktail dress also had a corseted bodice, complete with crystals, and a flowy organza skirt.
â€œI thought she looked like one of the most gorgeous brides I ever worked withâ€“she has this spark in her eyes and a confidence, she owned that look,â€ Monique Lhuillier says.
