Same, Same But Different

I have to confess, when I was on vacation last month I became a little addicted to 'Giuliana and Bill' on the Style network. After awhile I began to realize that my mum was right, the reality tv show couple are very, very, similar to the Frog Prince and I (she is away-with-the-fairies and he just shakes his head and laughs at her lovable innocence).

In 2007 the E! anchorwoman and first-season Apprentice winner married on the Italian island of Capri. Giuliana looked like a glowing bride (though extremely thin !! extreeeemmmmelly thin!) in a custom-fit Monique Lhuillier gown. Bill looked like the perfect prince in a black tuxedo and white tie, which was custom tailored by the bride's father.

Following the Catholic ceremony, which included a performance of "Ave Maria" (my ultimate wedding church song) by the bride's brother, guests were taken by bus to the reception at Grand Hotel Quisisana.

Giuliana says of her fairytale wedding, "it was exactly what I've always wanted."

Monique Lhuillier is quickly becoming my favourite bridal designer. Her gowns are exquisite. The gown she custom made for Giuliana Ranic is very similar to one of her off-the-rack designs (don't you think?). The crystal embellished lace corset and tufted silk skirt is modern, glamorous and show-stopping.

Here are some real life brides in a similar (if not the same) Monique Lhuillier gown that Giuliana DePandi wore when she became Mrs Rancic. Who wore it better ?

And here the crystal embellished bustier is teamed
with a silk satin organza skirt... stunning.
