All the Details of Carrie Underwood's Two Custom Monique Lhuillier Wedding Gowns

No fairy tale is complete without a dress fit for a princess! And in the case of Carrie Underwood‘s ultimate story book wedding, to Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher, make that two dresses both custom-created by designer Monique Lhuillier. “[Carrie] wanted something grand and magical. She wears evening gowns all the time but this had to be really special,” Lhuillier tells PEOPLE. For Carrie’s trip down the aisle, Lhuillier designed a one-of-a-kind, drop waist, custom ballgown–complete with a corseted bodice made of Chantilly lace and covered in silk flowers and crystals. The gown–which took over 400 hours to create!–was cinched with a blush pink sash and topped with a chapel-length circular veil encrusted with clear and pink crystals. “For the party, she said ‘I want to dance and have fun’. I saw she had gorgeous legs so I thought why not show them off?” says Lhuillier, who put the country superstar in a strapless, corseted, jeweled-bodice cocktail dress with delicately frayed organza skirt. And the gorgeous gowns didn’t stop with Carrie, with Lhuillier creating four different silk chiffon goddess gowns for Carrie’s eight bridemaids. And to top off their looks, Carrie gifted her bridesmaids an assortment of jewelry from Swarovski, including a pendant cross necklace and crystal earrings and bracelets. Combined with perfect hair and makeup, Lhuillier says, “I thought she looked like one of the most gorgeous brides I ever worked with–she has this spark in her eyes and a confidence, she owned that look.” –Andrea DeSimone
