Candice Crawford didn’t need to try on wedding gowns while planning her nuptials to Tony Romo; years before he popped the question, she’d already found the one. Taken by a flowing St. Pucchi gown designed by Rani Totman, the bride-to-be kept a photo of the dress, and ordered it “the moment she got engaged,” a rep for the brand tells PEOPLE. Crawford finally got to wear her dream dress on Saturday, when she tied the knot with her football star beau in Dallas, Texas. Working closely with Totman, Crawford oversaw the alterations of the sleeveless ball gown, which featured a Queen Anne collar and deep-V neckline. Made with 100 percent pure silk duchess satin, the dress’s bodice was handcrafted in a floral pattern and accented with ostrich feathers, rhinestones and crystal beading. Crawford customized her gown with a keyhole back, too, and opted for a draped, voluminous skirt with a detachable semi-cathedral train. Totman, also based in Dallas, says it was “a true pleasure” to work with the young bride. “It was an incredible experience watching the dress come to life on her,” he says. “Candice has a true eye for styles that accentuate her natural beauty.” –Kate Hogan

It isn’t a dress that I would choose – it reminds me of my down comforter on my bed! However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I’m sure that Candice felt like a princess in it on her special day. Many congrats to you both!

I’m sure she looked lovely in it!
Every bride should get to wear their dream gown on their special day – whether it’s to others tastes or not.

I think the top is very pretty and Candice is a very pretty girl, but the bottom reminds me of my down comforter. I want to cuddle up in it and take a nap! :)

I actually do not like Candice’s hair from the photo shown. Looks kind of dowdy.

I LOVE the dress except for the drastic LOW-CUT front! I hope she wore something on top to cover her clevage at Church or it would be extremely disrespectful!!!

For those who aren’t fans of the skirt, the article does say she made adjustments to the dress, such as changing the back and the skirt…so it really may look very different from this photo. Wait till the official pictures come out to judge it!

I like from the top all the way to above her knees… Thats where it gets alittle much. But she is gorgeous and if thats her dream dress then Im happy she got it!
