A bride who spends her work week twirling around the Dancing with the Stars ballroom in glam and glitzy minidresses needs a show-stopping number to wear for her first wedded spin on the dance floor. (It's practically a given, after all.) And just-married Whitney Carson sure didn't disappoint, scoring straight tens from all the judges when it came to her bridal ensemble. Carson, who wed her high school sweetheart Carson McAllister on New Year's Day, stunned in her breathtaking wedding dress — and now we're dishing on the details.
For her winter wonderland nuptials, the DWTS pro looked the part of a sweet snow princess in her wintery white gown. The fabulous frock was the creation of couture wedding dress designer, Rita Vinieris of Rivini, (dreamed up by none other than the bride herself!).
Classic and classy, the Rivini number was a modest one, featuring a higher neckline for the church ceremony and vintage-inspired long sleeves, outfitted in the loveliest of lace. The lacey detailing also trailed along the bottom of the gorgeous gown and her dramatic cathedral length veil, which featured elegant embroidery and lace appliqué. The dazzling result? A dainty, dreamy bridal look, full of romantic elements and easy elegance. "I didn't want to take it off," Carson told People of the couture confection. With a dress like that, we wouldn't either! (We'd wear that thing grocery shopping if we could...)
However, Carson wasn't the only one outfitted in a dreamy dress on January 1st. The pro dancer had her 'maids (including a few of her DWTS co-stars!) don taupe-hued Amsale gowns, all toting unique, individual details and warm wintery wraps. "The dresses were all the same color, but they were all very different," Carson shared. "It meant so much for them to be there. I wanted the dresses to match their unique personalities."

Her flower girls were also pint-sized fashionistas, as they walked down the aisle in creamy, frilly dresses and handmade leather boots. We're in love! If there was a disco ball trophy for wedding day style, the new Mrs. McAllister would walk away a winner.
