Caroline Wozniacki gave Serena Williams a pretty cute bridesmaid’s dress

Nearly a week ago, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki married David Lee in Tuscany. It wasn’t a secret or anything, and Caroline even organized a Vogue exclusive, a photoshoot for the dress fitting. The problem was that there were so many photos of the unfinished dress, I got confused and thought Caroline really did walk down the aisle in what amounted to lingerie. But no, there were more lace appliques added to her Oscar de la Renta gown.

Beyond the first Vogue photos of her dress, Caroline and her friends began slowly posting photos on social media of the wedding festivities. I had been dying to see Serena Williams’ bridesmaid’s dress in particular. As it turns out, Caroline did NOT do her bridesmaids dirty. She chose a flattering pale green fabric and she allowed each bridemaid to select the general design of their gown. Serena chose a spaghetti-strapped fitted bodice and a flowy skirt. Very flattering.

And in case you were wondering, Olympia was included in the wedding festivities too. Here’s Olympia crashing some bridal event. Look at her little robe!

Vogue did another article on Caroline’s wedding, which you can read here. The wedding was a multi-day affair which involved lots of games and impromptu jumps in the pool and obstacle courses. I would rather die. No, that’s too hyperbolic. I would rather sit somewhere quiet and have a stiff drink. There are a lot of details about the meals though, which I always enjoy in all wedding-reporting. At the rehearsal dinner, the menu included: “lamb chops, salami, tomatoes, and hand-spun mozzarella… A risotto topped with truffles had guests going back for second and even clandestine third plates.” And to wrap it up, a gelato cart was stationed by the bar. YES. The wedding dinner was “three courses of Italian favorites,” which… I mean, pasta at a wedding? Do non-Italians do that? And yes, hallelujah, there was a CAKE. A four-tier wedding cake with white roses.

Personally, I don’t love that Caroline wore her hair down for her wedding, but she probably wanted to wear it down because she has to wear it up so much for tennis. And I’m still not in love with her dress, but whatever, it’s not MY dress. She was glowing!

    The bridesmaids look fabulous. I love that they were allowed to choose their own variation of the dress because one style does not flatter everyone. One of the ladies is pregnant, and I bet she was especially grateful. I kind of like the bridesmaids’ dresses better than the bride’s, but she looks beautiful and happy.

      My sister did the same thing for her wedding. It was a “black and white” theme: all the bridesmaids could choose their style of black (long) dress in (basically) the same kind/shade of fabric. I got to choose my own as well, as MoH. Everyone was comfortable and happy (confident they could cut the dress down for a LBD after – soooo many bridesmaids’ dresses are in the back of someone’s closet lol).

      • Enn says:

        I did this at my wedding in 2011. Picked the designer and color and told my bridesmaids to choose whatever style they wanted.

      • Liz says:

        I did the same at my wedding in 2001. Long black dress, if it’s already in your closet, even better.

        One of my bridesmaids was 7 months pregnant at my wedding and yes, she really appreciated being able to wear a dress that was comfortable for her and more importantly, flat shoes. She is one of my cousins, I didn’t know she was pregnant when I asked her to be in my wedding. She told me in that conversation – “Please be one of my bridesmaids.””Um, I’m pregnant. I’ll be about 7 months at the wedding. Are you sure?” “YES, but only if you will be comfortable!”

        All of the bridesmaids dresses I wore were eventually donated to an organization that turned them into prom dresses for girls who couldn’t afford to buy them.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I did this at my wedding in 1999. And I also had a pasta bar, although I didn’t get any of it!

    • olive says:

      my friend did the same – picked a shade of blue from j. crew and each of us bridesmaids picked out different styles of dress. much more flattering than shoving a bunch of differently shaped women in the exact same dress.

    • Kate says:

      IDK I was just in a wedding and you usually have to order them several months in advance to make sure they’re the same color. Maybe here they were able to expedite so they could order more recently but ordering at 2 months pregnant and wearing at 6 months pregnant was a nightmare. Personally not a fan of matching bridesmaids dresses, everyone looks better and the photos are more interesting imo when they can choose what they want to wear.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      My brother’s wife did the same thing at their wedding, same color and fabric, but whatever style you felt comfortable in. I’m not having bridesmaids at my wedding but if I were, I’d do the same.

  2. Becks1 says:

    I love those bridesmaid dresses. Beautiful and flowing, great color for everyone. I really like the bride’s hair down too – I think it makes her overall look a lot less formal. Seems like it was a great wedding.

  3. Clare says:

    This is the best I’ve seen Serena look in a long time. She looks absolutely beautiful!

    I don’t normally like her court fashion, but girl knows how to do weddings.

  4. Esmom says:

    Sounds lovely and looks picture perfect. The setting, the flowers, wow. And of course the dresses. And pasta for dinner? Sign me up. I would not be shy about going back for thirds of truffle risotto, lol.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yeah I would be sure to wear a nice loose flowy dress to that one, lol. I would eat all the food.

  5. original_kellybean says:

    Love Serena’s choice of dress here.

    That menu sounds horrible. Lamb? Cute little baby sheep? No thanks. Risotto topped with truffles? Double no. Good thing I wasn’t invited! 🙂 I would have had to fill up on some very expensive vodka.

    • Eliza says:

      The food sounds delicious, but “going back for second and third plates” means buffet. Millionaires get buffet dinners for rehearsal dinners?

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Why not? Buffets are awesome and guests get more of an opportunity to pick their meal. I have always hated plated meals at weddings. They are generally boring and bland.

    • Eliza says:

      I’ll be in minority, i hate bridesmaids dress material and if the was more saturated color it would be more flattering for all girls.

      The hair down looks nice in posed photos, but in the walking down the aisle pictures it makes her look very short as it’s half her height

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Lamb is my favorite red meat. It’s delicious. And I love truffles and truffle oil so the truffle risotto sounds amazing to me too.

  6. Lisa says:

    Everyone looks great. She didn’t do her bridesmaids dirty.

  7. RG says:

    Did the same thing for my wedding a few years ago. My colors were cream and navy blue. Told my bridesmaids to go to J Crew and pick any of their navy blue dresses (literally any). I even emailed them when there were sales going on. I’ve been a bridesmaid so many times and all those dresses have been donated after because I really couldn’t wear them again to anything. I wanted my bridesmaids to be comfortable and be able to wear their dresses again after my wedding.
    Caro (and her bridesmaids) looked so beautiful. I’m glad she found happiness after Rory McIlroy did her dirty by ending their engagement with a 10 minute phone call. Best revenge is living your best life after, imho.

    • LNG says:

      Not only that – a 10 minute phone call right after their invitations were sent out!! The WORST. I mean, it’s better than going through with it if you’re unsure, but at least do it before the invitations go out!!

  8. TheOriginalMia says:

    So happy for Caroline! Best revenge is living well. The bridesmaids’ dresses are really nice. I love the color and different styles. Olympia is adorable. Love that kid!

    • ms single malt says:

      In my mind I would rather my fiance make the phone call to cancel a wedding then go thru with wedding and end up with a divorce. It is clear that Rory and Caroline have vastly different lifestyles – so maybe she is just happy and realizes she dodged a bullet. She can have the jet setter, high profile Vogue lifestyle and he can live a more low key existence.

  9. Tallia says:

    Wow. All the bridesmaids look beautiful and I really love that color on Serena.

  10. Marjorie says:

    I’m just here for Olympia. I want photos of her on the dance floor – you know she tore it up.

  11. sequinedheart says:

    I’m not a wedding-y bridey type of lass, I got married in an off-white cocktail dress at city hall but I looooove this wedding dress. Caroline looks gorgeous. Her hair is magical and those BM dresses are perfect.

  12. Karen2 says:

    Somewhat strange that Serena is everywhere but Venus is almost invisible.

    • kerwood says:

      Venus is ill, isn’t she? Or maybe she just prefers a private life. She always has.

  13. Kaye says:

    Is Serena looking like she may be expecting!?

  14. ms says:

    That wedding dress is gorgerous and I don’t usually go much for sheer or lace. And the mint color is really fresh and pretty, and looks great with everyone’s skin tone. A rare find. Well done
