When Hillary Scott started planning the details of her wedding to now-husband Chris Tyrrell, she immediately turned to one of the best names in the bridal gown business: Vera Wang. The Lady Antebellum singer approached the designer about a custom dress, and what resulted was a one-of-a-kind creation that left the bride aglow.

“Hillary was joyous, over the moon,” Wang tells PEOPLE. “And [she was] actually very enchanted with the thought of a hand-pieced, hand-engineered lace mermaid wedding gown.” In fact, the strapless dress featured all-over lace underlay, a layered tulle skirt with horsehair banding and a hand-cut corded lace applique with hand-applied crystal-and-pearl beading.

“While the dress was very tailored, the lace work was extremely feminine,” Wang explains.

Scott finished her look with an embroidered, cathedral-length mantilla veil with hand-cut Chantilly lace applique. “[She was] a contemporary vision of a traditional bride,” Wang says proudly.

Scott and Tyrrell tied the knot in upstate New York on Saturday, surrounded by family and close friends. Soon after the nuptials, the couple posted a video to Lady Antebellum’s official website, announcing their status as husband and wife. “We’re so excited to be starting our life together,” Scott says, “and we just had to let you in on the exciting news.” Tell us: What do you think of Scott’s gown?

I don’t like it at all….AT ALL! But I do love her and I think she’s beautiful. This doesn’t do her justice, nor do I find it figure-flattering.

Don’t like it at all. You cannot really see the detailing of the dress, which I guess makes the dress something awesome according to the magazine. She does not pull it well either. Really it looks like something from David’s Bridal without the big price tag that she probably paid for it.

I think she is a beautiful woman, but I don’t like the dress on her. I love the veil that is so pretty.
