Ciara & Russell Wilson are married, the bride wore a custom Roberto Cavalli gown

We are The Wilsons!

I was going to refuse to write about Ciara and Russell Wilson’s wedding until we got a look at Ciara’s dress. Thankfully, I didn’t have to pout for very long! Within hours of the confirmation that the wedding took place, Ciara and Russell both posted the same wedding photo on their social media accounts. So we got our first look at Ciara’s gown! It was designed by Peter Dundas at Roberto Cavalli, and it is a completely custom design. I don’t hate it? I don’t love it either. I feel like this is a very ‘80s design, right? I think it’s the lace up bust and the bell-sleeves. Yikes. Okay, this gown is a mess, but she still looks beautiful.

More details about the wedding… it took place at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. Ciara’s bridesmaids wore black, and Serena Williams was not there. Serena was supposed to be a bridesmaid but Serena had to cancel at the last minute because of Wimbledon (where Serena is crushing it). According to E! News, the ceremony was “very traditional” and “heartfelt,” with personalized speeches mixed throughout the ceremony. There are also reports that Russell “could barely keep his composure as Ciara walked down the aisle toward him” and he looked like “a big, teary-eyed teddy bear.”

E! News also says that this English ceremony was just for show, that they are not legally married in America yet, so they’ve already gotten a marriage license in Washington state (Russell’s home). I guess they’ll have some simple ceremony in Washington in a few weeks, but I’m also guessing that Russell and Ciara are not going to wait for that particular legality to have S-E-X.

    Many congratulations to the Wilsons!

    I don’t care for the dress. The low cut and lace up just make a bad thing worse. At least it isn’t strapless.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I straight up hate the dress. It looks very 80s in a bad way. I have yet to see a Cavalli gown that doesn’t look tacky.

      Now that they’re married we hopefully won’t hear about their sex life. Or lack of it.

      • Goats on the Roof says:

        Lord willing, they will pipe down about their sex life. I hate they made it everyone’s business in the first place.

      • Bridget says:

        We’re the ones talking about their sex life, not them.

      • Wren says:

        Actually both of them made the whole waiting until marriage thing a point, so they started it.

        I’ve always really hated that nudge nudge wink wink aspect of weddings. It’s so gross and intrusive. I don’t want to know anything about people’s sex lives, whether they’re doing it or not. The fact that they were both saying “we’re not banging yet, we’re waiting” is really saying “guess what we’re doing after the wedding? SEX! for the first time! lots of it!” To me that’s vulgar. Have sex or wait, whatever that’s your business, but other people don’t need to know about it.

      • Bridget says:

        It came because Russel mentioned it in a Church talk, and while that is still intended for public consumption, there’s a huge difference between that and volunteering the information. It came up in a talk that wasn’t intended to go national, and now they’re asked about it at pretty much every opportunity. The more WE talk about it and post about it, the more clicks it generates, the more it’s going to be a topic. We can’t continue to feed the beast and then complain that it’s getting bigger.

    • OrigialTessa says:

      It’s terrible. Like a “sexy milkmaid” costume, but white lace. She’s so beautiful, she just didn’t need it to be so revealing.

    • INeedANap says:

      That looks like a tacky person’s idea of a classy wedding dress.

      But she looks happy and radiant, so joke’s on me.

      Congrats to them!

      • HH says:

        “That looks like a tacky person’s idea of a classy wedding dress.” >>>> I can’t possibly type enough “LOL’s” or “HAHA’s” to let you know how hard I laughed. I mean, I was definitely laughing in caps lock.

      • Fee says:

        Many times a dress is ugly but somehow looks great in the bride. Congratulations to both of them. They are such a loving couple.

    • Audrey says:

      Yeah in general i actually think her taste in clothing is awful. She’s so so beautiful but this dress is terrible and she usually shows wayyy too much skin in other outfits. She always has side boobs and a bare hip. Someone please help her.

      Now that my rant is over, congrats to them. I hope they end up happy.

      Yay for no more abstinence interviews. Hopefully they won’t overshare about the wedding night lol

  2. Erinn says:

    I don’t normally like dresses like that… but it looks REALLY good on her. And they both look so happy – it’s sweet.

    • dotdotdot says:

      agreed. probably because she is stunning wearing anything. this woman is gorgeous!

    • Kitten says:

      She is so freaking beautiful. The dress…? I mean, it’s not THAT bad.

      • I Choose Me says:

        Compared to some other wedding dresses I’ve seen, no it’s not bad. She looks beautiful and happy.

      • Mimz, says:

        Yeah like.. not something I’d wear (don’t have the body anyway), but it’s pretty and right up her alley. It’s sexy and all that, and it looks very Ciara-ish. Like, they really made it FOR her, with HER in mind. And it shows. And her happiness makes it even better.
        I wish her well.

  3. Margo S. says:

    I don’t mind the dress. I like that it’s not a typical wedding dress that you see everyday. They both look so happy! Congrats to them!

  4. Danielle says:

    Love her. Think they are a hot couple. But WOW that dress! Does it have a lace up bust, bell sleeves,a train and a peplum?! There is a lot going on with this dress.

  5. Esmom says:

    I don’t like the dress but she does make it work. She could probably wear a paper bag and look beautiful. Something about Wilson really bugs me…but hopefully these two will enjoy many years of happiness.

    • susiecue says:

      agree on all counts. I don’t like him for football reasons, and seeming like he can’t see past the end of his own nose. But she is beaaauuutiful, I could look at her all day! And they are cute.

    • Blessed always says:

      Congrats to the beautiful couple. They are hollywood most beautiful couple and I’m glad they abstained from sex until marriage, it shows people that it can be done if you really want to. Thank God they have found each other and wishing them many years.

  6. Nancy says:

    She is a beautiful woman. Future treated her like such a doormat, he was not even close to being worthy of her love. I hope she has a successful and happy marriage with Russell. Only hope is now that they are betrothed, they will keep their physical affection for each other behind closed doors….lol… if!

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Am I the only one who doesn’t find her pretty? Her face is very harsh.

      • AnnieRUOk says:

        Yes, you are the only one who doesn’t find her ‘pretty’. Thanks for sharing

      • Colette says:


      • Nancy says:

        Locke: It’s the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder thing. Everyone thinks Liam and Brad and all the pretty blonde men are so gorgeous and to me not so much. I like unique looks that only a mother could love…like Daryl on WD!!!!

      • Kitten says:

        Not surprised as you and I always have opposing views when it comes to beauty, Locke.

        I find her drop-dead gorgeous.

    • Taiss says:

      I’m happy for her, future is so used to baby who are financially dependent on him and put up with his shit. Ciara shouldn’t have been with him in the first place, I’m glad that once she was done with him, she was Done!!!

  7. amunet ma'at says:

    I actually love the dress. Call me a 90s flower child but I love her sleeves. The whole thing looks unique and lovely.

    • Grant says:

      I love the sleeves too! What’s wrong with a little retro 80’s throwback?

    • Chica says:

      I Feel the same. She looks gorgeous. I love the dress, and it works on her and on the menu where they got married.

      Also, Kaiser, what do you mean this was all for show? Their marriage license was signed by a judge the day before the wedding back in Washington state. Aren’t most people legally married before their ceremony? Most of the weddings I attend state side, the wedding license is put in for days before the wedding ….

  8. Lucy2 says:

    Gratz to them, and what an amazing place for the ceremony. I bet it was beautiful.
    Not a fan of the dress, there’s too much going on for my taste, but she looks beautiful and obviously is happy with it.

  9. lisa2 says:

    She really is gorgeous..

    I don’t like the dress. Just too many elements..
    They seem happy and that is all that matters.

  10. Miss M says:


  11. Tig says:

    Well I guess it works for a castle wedding! And yes pls- no gushing about how happy they are to have “waited”- ugh.

  12. Lama Bean says:

    Lord that poor woman needs to stretch thoroughly on her wedding night. I imagine a ton of pent-up frustration resulting in a damn near explosion.

  13. Chaucer says:

    I think TMZ is reporting they were already married. Married before the rehearsal dinner.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      I read they were married in Washington State on Tuesday. How long is a flight between Seattle and London?

      • bluhare says:

        Non stop to London is 9 hours. However they probably went to Manchester, which if they went commercial would require a stop. I bet they went private with all the wedding stuff they had to take that they wouldn’t want crushed.

  14. QQ says:

    Good for them, I bet the Patron Saint of F*ckboys , Future is somewhere crying some outtuned tears drowning his sorrows in Lean

    • Santia says:

      LOL. I’m sooooooo happy Ciara got to the altar with this one. If only to f**k with Future.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Hahahaha! He probably is. I hope Russell petitions to adopt her son because Future has shown little to no concern for him, other than as a tool to control Ciara.

      • Chica says:

        @ The Original Mia

        I wish he could too, but Future would actually have to sign away his paternal rights, and we all know that low life would never. And it has nothing to do with the fact that that’s his son, but rather the kid is an object that ties him to Ciara, the one who got away and who he is disturbingly obsessed with, and to spite her. His Rolling Stones (what a downgrade they’ve become putting the likes of him on) article revealed a lot about him and his terroristic manipulation of Ciara, and so did the following court deposition. He basically said he doesn’t think he could ever stop talking about her. He also played up the fact they are connected for life in RS article, but to a disturbing degree. I wish he’d leave her tf alone. Ugh!

    Just came here to say Ciara is legit one of the most beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure of putting my eyes on.

  16. Jen43 says:

    They are a beautiful couple. I bet she gets pregnant soon.

  17. Bridget says:

    These two look very happy! Can we please stop discussing their celibacy now?

  18. Buffy says:

    Congratulations!! Now, GO HAWKS!!!!!

  19. notsoanonymous says:

    I hate the dress – way too much of everything. I find her insanely beautiful but her clothing choices always make me cringe, and her wedding dress is no exception. I’m a Seahawks fan and love Russell, so I’m hopeful for the two of them.

  20. Robin says:

    He said at one point that it was “God’s plan” that he and Ciara be together. So it must also have been God’s plan that he and his first wife would get divorced, I guess.

    • Kitten says:

      The divorce would probably be considered one of “God’s mysteries” because He moves in mysterious ways, etc., etc.

  21. Tessa says:

    Don’t really understand why it’s not legal?
    They married somewhere that can perform marriages and UK marriage is recognised over the pond, so why didn’t they just do it?

    • Mika says:

      If Ciara and Russell were legally married in the UK, then the marriage stands legally in the USA. They would need to acquire an Apostille on their wedding certificate, which is obtained from the FCO in Milton Keynes.

      If E! News is saying that the marriage in the UK is not legal, the only reasons it would not be legal is if they did not get married by an ordained person or if they did not obtain a UK marriage licence and give a 28 day notice to a designated registrar’s office for foreign nationals.

  22. M.A.F. says:

    Dress should be in a hair metal video but she looks good in it. There is something about him I don’t like. But then again, I’m not a football person so maybe that’s it.

  23. lizzie says:

    explains why they were in liverpool. great jumping off point for lots of south western UK destinations.

  24. Almondjoy says:

    Congrats to Russell and Ci! I’m no longer a huge Ciara fan but I do love them together and I think this relationship is a good thing. I’m wishing them the best❤️

  25. gene123 says:

    Her dress is such a trend salad. Like each individual portion would be beautiful on its own but all together seems a mess…but damn is she stunning. I am however so grateful that sleeves on wedding dresses are thing again.

    Congratulations to the happy couple and I hope Wilson will be able to play to his full potential again! (although she is going to be on constant bump watch now)

  26. The Original Mia says:

    I can’t with that dress. I’m not sure what it is, but I’m so happy for her and Russell. Wish them a long and happy marriage.

  27. Kate says:

    Congratulations to them! they look very happy and also very cute together!

  28. iheartgossip says:

    Their babies will be gorgeous. Go Hawks

  29. Lala says:

    I love Russell Wilson; think he’s a genuinely good person who tries to do the right thing. Wishing them much happiness! GO HAWKS!

  30. Veronica says:

    I’m happy for her. While I’m not thrilled about the dress, I will say it could have been FAR tackier coming from Cavalli, since that’s kind of his thing.

  31. Joh says:

    When you say sex….. Do you mean with each other?

    • Mika says:

      I get a sugar vibe from Russell – is he in the closet and hiding?

      • ladybosca says:

        Hi all!!
        Allegedly she is his beard. But I think they look happy, and to each their own. With all the madness, sadness, chaos, and craziness going on in the world, I say more happiness to them.
        I like the sleeves on her gown….reminds me of Celine Dion’s wedding gown. And as veronica stated, cavalli could’ve made it look super tacky. Have a great day all! 🙂
