Ciara gave bridesmaids special treatment with their gowns

Published 07/07/2016


Designer Michael Costello loved working with Ciara on her bridesmaids dresses.

Ciara made sure each of her bridesmaids channelled their individual style in the dresses they wore at her wedding.

The popstar tied the knot with American football player Russell Wilson in Cheshire, England, on Wednesday (06Jul16), looking absolutely stunning in a custom Cavalli Couture gown featuring a corset, silk tulle and class beading.

Although she was clearly the star of the ceremony, Ciara, 30, made sure her bridesmaids - who included Kelly Rowland and Russell's sister Anna - also felt beautiful at her fairytale wedding.

Designer Michael Costello made eight black stretch satin gowns for the bridesmaids, which he began work on back in June (16), not long after the singer wore one of his creations to host the Billboard Music Awards.

“I loved working on this with Ciara, and all her girls. It was a pleasure to be a part of her special day with Russell,” Michael told PeopleStyle, explaining how involved his client was throughout the lead up to her marriage, even making FaceTime calls to pick each dress according to the bridesmaids' figure and fashion sense when she couldn't help in person. “Every girl’s individual style is implemented in the design of their dress as well as their personality. Ciara made sure of that.”

The dresses all have subtle differences, but are all united by the matching lace chokers the girls wore. As for why Ciara chose black, Michael believes it's because the singer knows every woman can feel confident and attractive in the shade, noting: "You can't go wrong."

Russell also looked dapper in a custom Armani suit, while Ciara's two-year-old son Future - who she shares with her ex-partner Future - wore Armani Jr.

Wedding guest Jennifer Hudson also made a big impact on Ciara's special day, wowing in a peach Christian Siriano dress. The actress-and-singer posted countless photos on Instagram of her wearing the elaborate piece, joking she couldn't even walk up and down the stairs or sit down properly in it.
