Vanessa Minnillo’s Monique Lhuillier Wedding Dress

I really like how Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey handled their wedding.  Despite the media’s desire to chatter about Nick and Jessica’s race to the altar, they kept their focus on their wedding and making it personal and perfect for them.

Held on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Necker Island (wow!), they celebrated their marriage in front of only 35 guests. (Although the TLC cameras were rolling for a future TV show).

And while there are only a few sneak peeks of Vanessa’s gown available, I’m already giddy over her “two-piece Monique Lhullier wedding dress with a hand tufted skirt made of silk faille and a bow belt at the waist.”

Her gown is classic and feminine.  A perfect selection for a traditional bride and a breathtaking, dramatic venue.
