Chrishell Stause is the latest celebrity to prove wedding dresses don’t have to break the bank.
On May 10, the 41-year-old Selling Sunset star surprised fans when she revealed her secret wedding to 29-year-old Australian musician G Flip. The pair wed in an intimate Las Vegas ceremony after one year of dating. “Love doesn’t always go as planned…. Sometimes it’s immeasurably better,” Stause captioned an Instagram reel earlier this month, which featured a photo from the ceremony in the clip’s final moments.
In a recent interview with Fashionista, the reality star revealed she pulled her white Gemeli Power wedding dress from her own wardrobe. “I was going to an event, and [Power] gave me two versions of the dress, and one was hanging in my closet because I didn’t end up using it,” Stause said. “I wanted to give it back to her, and she was like, ‘Just keep it.’”
She continued, “I think she was surprised to see that I did end up wearing it. I think she was really happy about that. It was a fun Vegas dress to get married in. It looks like I planned that out, but I actually had it in my closet. I felt really confident in it. It’s actually a little iridescent. I love it because she’s an Australian designer who’s the sweetest person.”
The She Fancy bodycon dress in ivory pearl retails for $529 on gemelipower.com and features a sculpted bust, dramatic high slit, and your choice of a rectangular or heart-shaped belt buckle (it appears Stause opted for the rectangle). Sizes range from 0 to 12.
Recently, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles opted for a $120 tiered halter dress for her courthouse wedding to NFL player Jonathan Owens in April. “Everything was ordered this week,” Biles told fans during a wedding Q+A on Instagram Stories following the ceremony. “Dress. Wedding bands. Shoes. Bouquet.” She paired the last-minute find with wide-fit strappy sandals from Pretty Little Thing.
