When you're a member of the Swarovski family, your wedding day is designed with one thing in mind: crystals! And, that's exactly what Victoria Swarovski, a singer and judge on Germany's Got Talent, did when she married Werner Mürz, a Munich-based entrepreneur, on June 16, 2017, at the Cathedral of San Giusto in Trieste, Italy. Guests traveled from around the globe to attend Swarovksi's wedding, an over-the-top, three-day event, which kicked off with a red-hued welcome party at Falisia Resort & Spa on Thursday night and ended with a farewell brunch on Saturday morning. The main celebration came on Friday afternoon, when Victoria Swarovski made her entrance in a show-stopping, custom-made gown (shown above) worth more than $1 million. It's safe to say that every detail of this destination wedding was extravagant—and filled with crystals! Keep reading to see more of the weekend's dramatic fashion and decor moments.
For the wedding ceremony, the bride's entourage of flower girls wore high-neck blue gowns and flower crowns of baby's breath.
At 3:30 p.m., the bride made one very dramatic entrance down the aisle of the Cathedral of San Giusto. Her million-dollar wedding dress, designed by Michael Cinco, featured 500,000 crystals and weighed roughly 100 pounds. And, of course, with a dress like that, Victoria needed a 26-foot long, lace-edged veil to complete her princess look.
After the traditional ceremony, guests headed over to Maxi’s Restaurant Portopiccolo for dinner and dancing by the sea. Here, round tables were topped with tall centerpieces of baby's breath and surrounded by ghosts chairs. And while baby's breath appeared in every detail from the flower girl crowns to the bridal bouquet throughout the day, the flower's statement moment came in the form of a heart-shaped installation that was perfect for photo ops!
Dinner on the deck transitioned into an all-out dance sesh, complete with strobe lights, an outfit change, and musical performance from the bride. The night ended with a five-tiered fondant cake decorated with alternating tiers of baby's breath.
And don't think the dramatic fashion and parties stopped there! At Thursday night's welcome party, the bride was stunning in a red-beaded gown with a halter neckline and a flowing train embellished with Swarovski crystals. She paired the gown with metallic Jimmy Choo heels and a heart-shaped clutch.
All guests were given a dress code—ladies in red, men in all-white—for the night's seated dinner, which took place under a clear-top tent on the hotel's waterside pavilion. The space was filled with long tables covered in red linens, gold candelabras, and crystal confetti.
Cheers to the happy couple, who celebrated in seriously studded style!
