I got married in Paris in 2007. I had the Eiffel Tower right outside our chapel. It was a small intimate ceremony with our closest family and friends...
...okay, everything I said above is true, only the Paris was actually the Paris Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada; the Eiffel Tower was a convincing fake; and of course we still were surrounded by our closest family and friends.
I wore a tea-length strapless lace dress with a veil and my husband wore a traditional Filipino barong. I went shopping in one day for my wedding dress and found it on sale for $300 at the local David's Bridal Shop and my husband found his barong at the back of a dry cleaner store where the owner sold Filipino garments. He paid $100 for it. We are a no-fuss couple and you will not find a bridezilla in me.
So it was quite delightful to read about Keira Knightley's recent wedding in France. She wore a recycled Rodarte strapless, blush-pink, tulle dress (she wore it previously at a 2008 party), a cropped Chanel jacket, flats, and a adorable crown of delicate flowers. With her wealth she certainly could of thrown a typical celebrity, elaborate Kardashian type wedding, but I admire her for keeping it a small and intimate affair wearing a recycled dress.
