Jessica Simpson is Married!

It’s official! Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are married! The couple said their vows at the San Ysidro Ranch in California this weekend.

Jessica and Eric, who have two children together, entered the ceremony as a pair to The Beach Boys “God Only Knows.” Their 200 guests certainly approved of their entrance.


Although photos haven’t been released yet, word is that the bride wore a custom-made gown by Carolina Herrera. She opted for a very fashionable champagne and gold dress for her second marriage.

Jessica joins another famous Jessica, Jessica Biel, in wearing a colored wedding dress. The latter wore a pale pink dress by Giambattista Valli at her 2012 wedding to Justin Timberlake.

She’s also not the only Simpson set to get married this year. Her younger sister, Ashlee, is also engaged and is also likely to have a summer wedding.

Kim Kardashian’s Fabulous Wedding Dress

In what is bound ot be one of the biggest weddings of the year, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot last weekend in Florence, Italy. The ceremony was held in front of a 20-foot wall of flowers, which provided a beautiful backdrop for Kim’s lace-covered gown.


The reality star and her new husband both wore Givenchy for the ceremony. The gown was a very formal style, with a chapel-length train, long sleeves, and a very modest high neckline. However, Kim did show a bit of skin with the illusion back and cut out waist details.

She completed her bridal style with a cathedral-length veil. The silk lace veil had a beautiful scalloped edge with lace detailing. This looked perfect along with the lace overlay and sleeves of the gown itself.

Kim kept her accessories minimalist, letting the gown be the focus of the attention. She wore a simple pair of diamond stud earrings to complete her ceremony style.

Of course, this wasn’t Kim’s only look for her wedding celebration. She also wore a beatiful tuxedo-style gown for the rehearsal and a crystal and pearl covered minidress for the reception.

Has Kim’s wedding dress inspired you? If you’re looking for the stand-out gown for your Salt Lake City wedding, give us a call today!

Johnny Depp is Now Engaged to Amber Heard

A lot of people are a fan of Johnny Depp. There’s no question about his talent as an actor—it goes beyond words. What many people are interested in about him is how he is able to stay this good looking, despite being 50 years old. Perhaps one reason for this is because of his young love, one that’s keeping him inspired and encouraged to be more than what he has already accomplished in his lifetime.


For Johnny Depp fans, however, the good news has not just stopped there. Recent reports have already shown that Mr. Depp and his 27-year-old belle, Amber Heard, are engaged.

After having been seen sporting a ring on her left ring finger, Heard has sparked engagement rumors about the couple. While plenty speculated about the rumor at first, People has already confirmed it: Depp and Heard are planning to get married.

After his split with Vanessa Paradis in 2012, this is the perfect time for Depp to start planning a new future for him and his two kids—Jack and Lily-Rose. Thankfully, Heard has already taken to adjusting with the two children. This means that the two will have no problem with their engagement.

The next thing we’ll be looking forward to is when the big date will be. And after that, we’ll look forward to what the soon-to-be Mrs. Depp will be wearing on her wedding day. We do hope it’s something similar to one of our dresses. Any guesses?

For everyone who ever enjoyed watching the TV series, That ‘70s Show, real life sweethearts Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are already planning their big day! A source recently revealed that the couple no longer wishes to wait, thus hinting at an early 2014 marriage.

According to the source of the information, the couple is interested in having a destination wedding in some place with rich history. Earlier in the year, the two spent several weeks together in the UK while Mila was filming ‘Jupiter Ascending’. Could they have been looking at wedding venues already? They don’t want to turn the wedding into a public frenzy. Instead, they wish that the big day would be all about their romance.

Although they haven’t announced anything, we’re hoping that they will soon. In any case, we’re excited to hear about their engagement already! Their on-screen team-up in the TV series was perfect! We’d love to see some little ones from their genes!

Sorry Ladies… Christian Slater is Married (For the Second Time)


Lately, we can’t seem to stop posting about celebrity weddings and engagements. On the list of our newly married celebrities is none other than heartthrob 44-year old Christian Slater and his longtime girlfriend Brittany Lopez. The two had a civil wedding in front of a judge at a courthouse in Coral Gables, Florida.

Having announced their engagement in February 2013 on an episode on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the Nymphomaniac star tied the month a few days ago. During the show, he also talked about how he met Brittany a couple of years ago.

While eating his breakfast at Florida’s Little Palm Island, he glanced upon a couple of women walking along. Knowing that the spot was famous for wedding proposals, Christian thought that the older lady was proposing to the younger woman. He decided to congratulate the allegedly lesbian couple on their engagement but it turned out he was mistaken. It was actually just Brittany helping out her aunt take a photo of the park. And the next thing was history.

This is actually Christian Slater’s second marriage. His first marriage was with Ryan Haddon, whom he married in 2000 but separated in 2005. They have two kids together, Jaden Christopher and Eliana.

Considering it was a civil wedding, Brittany didn’t wear a wedding dress. Instead, the couple wore casual black clothes. If you are planning to have a civil wedding but would love to wear a wedding dress, you may check out some of the ones in our collection.

Hayden Panettiere Talks About Engagement to Wladimir Klitschko


Recently, Hayden Panettiere showed off her engagement ring to Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko. She also guested on The Ellen Degeneres Show to talk about her upcoming wedding.  Amidst her busy wedding planning schedule, the young actress took the time to talk about her engagement.

On the episode of the TV show, she was captured talking about her beau and explaining to him US wedding customs. Take for example, a honeymoon: which the 37-year old boxer did not know about. At the same time, Hayden also had to explain why he wouldn’t be allowed to see her wearing the dress. To this, Wladimir asked ‘Why not? It’s dress!’

Speaking of the dress, Hayden has not yet revealed any news about her going shopping for a dress. But with her sense of style, we’re very sure that she will pick out something really nice and traditional. What do you think? Would you like her to wear a traditional dress like the ones in our collection? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!

Leighton Meester is Engaged to Adam Brody!


Last week, the internet was abuzz with the surprising engagement of O.C. star Adam Brody and Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester. Having met on the set of The Oranges in 2011, who would have known that these two would hit it off?

News about their brewing romance started in February this year. The two have been quietly dating for less than a year before news of their engagement was announced on Nov. 20 and confirmed by Us Weekly.

Before dating Adam, Leighton was dating fellow actor Aaron Himelstein. She was also linked to her co-star on Gossip Girl, Sebastian Stan. Adam, on the other hand, was spotted dating screenwriter/director Lorene Scafaria in 2010. He also dated Rachel Bilson for 3 years.

The two have kept mum about the engagement, which seems understandable given the quiet nature of the two stars. Especially since when it comes to the topic of falling in love, Leighton does not indulge in too much information to the public.

We’re looking forward to further developments regarding the couple’s engagement. Do you think Leighton will pick out her wedding dress anytime soon? Do you think she’ll pick out a dress that her GG character, Blair Waldorf, will wear? Check out our inventory for your Blair Waldorf inspired wedding dress!

Snooki Chooses a Traditional Wedding Dress


It’s no secret that reality star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has started planning details for her own wedding to beau and fellow Jersey Shore star, Jionni LaValle. Having been engaged since March 2012, the wedding was pushed back to a later date since Snooki confirmed she was pregnant.

Months later and bearing the best post-baby body ever, Snooki has started to cross things off her wedding list again! One of the things she has recently crossed off is the much-awaited wedding dress that the reality star will be wearing.

Seen on an episode of her spin-off program, Snooki tried on wedding dresses with her pal JWoww. When they were both trying on dresses (JWoww is also engaged), Snooki suddenly blurted out ‘I think this is my dress!’ and the rest is history.

Despite being her signature look, Snooki has ditched her love for animal print and decided to go for a traditional strapless dress. It was an ivory strapless gown that bore an intricate silver embellished design across its corseted bodice. The hem of the dress was also intricately designed with the same silver beading. Moreover, the gown had a very long train that a couple of store assistants had to help her hold it up.

Complete with a chic pearl tiara and a veil, Snooki exited the dressing room happily. On that mini-trailer for the episode, a hint of glimmer on Snooki’s eyes can even be seen after she had made that decision.

The date of the exact wedding has not yet been announced but there are already rumors of a January 2014 wedding; a rumor Snooki has slammed as untrue.

Snooki’s fans might think that the dress is too traditional, especially since she’s been known to wear over-the-top and animal print clothes most of the time. But if Snooki loves it, what’s there to fuss about right? Do you agree with her decision to go traditional this time? Are you also looking for a traditional wedding dress like Snooki that you can wear on your Salt Lake City wedding? Call us today so we can help.
