Christina Ricci's Givenchy Wedding Dress: See An Exclusive Photo!

The first thing we thought when we heard Christina Ricci married James Heerdegen: We can’t wait to see her dress. And the wait was worth it. The actress shared an exclusive intimate photo with PEOPLE of her Givenchy haute couture gown.

Ricci, 33, did not go the traditional princess route (we knew she wouldn’t), selecting a white silk tulle design with Chantilly lace and satin piping. The dress is also covered in micro pearl embroidery and features a very unique detail: short lace sleeves with cutouts at the shoulders. Not pictured: her white tulle veil, which had a matching Chantilly lace appliqué. (You can see a view of that — and the gown’s beautiful train — in another photo she Tweeted, below!)

The star and longtime boyfriend Heerdegen said “I do” in an intimate New York ceremony Saturday night before their family and friends. The nuptials took place at Manhattan’s Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall.

“Getting to say ‘fiancé’ instead of ‘boyfriend’ is my favorite thing,” about being engaged, the actress told PEOPLE in July. “I can’t wait for ‘husband.'”

What do you think of the star’s wedding dress? Are you a fan of the sleeves? Share your thoughts below!

She looked lovely in her dress. Simple, yet elegant. Perfect!

Amaryllis on

That’s beautiful. I’m not a fan of wedding dresses and didn’t wear one when I got married. However, if I was going that route, this would be the one I’d wear!

Alicat on

I love this. It seems well suited to her. Congrats

Meg on

Looks like something Audrey Hepburn would’ve worn….very classy. Well done, well done indeed! Congrats too!

Cee cee on

Simple, elegant, stunning! Non of that strapless nonsense.

klutzy_girl on

I don’t really like the sleeves too much, but I love the dress.

Congratulations again to them!

Charlie on

She has always been so pretty. She looks beautiful.

Liz on

Gorgeous dress! She is just stunning!
I’m so confused why you keep calling him her long time boyfriend. They have been together for less than two years.

ABC on

She looks lovely. Congrats!

Lisa on

That’s beautiful. Very elegant and chic!

Susan on

Beautiful! And the sleeves give it just the amount of edginess

She looks stunning, but I don’t like the cut outs. Its not made to be a wedding dress detail. I personally think it cheapens the look of the dress.

Gorgeous dress!

Jenny on

Ahh, I just watched Casper yesterday, this reminds me of the scene where she comes down the stairs in the lace white dress!! Love it :D

Amy on

That is such an elegant, beautiful dress. A perfect choice.

MKM on

Hooray for the lace resurgence: elegant and timeless, classy and sophisticated! She looks stunning.

Carrie M on

Very sleek and sexy! Very nice!

J. on

Beautiful, classic dress. I don’t care for the arm warmers though. Still, a thousand times better than the strapless gowns so many brides wear these days.

Bell on

Love her, love her dress! She can do no wrong!

Now THAT is a a beautiful wedding dress#

Charli on

The picture in my head was prettier but she is beautiful.

Sophia on

She really looks SO elegant – that’s refreshing. While I wear “cold shoulder sleeves” on top, not loving it on a wedding dress. But that being said, she looks gorgeous.

JoMarch on

The dress looked much better with the veil on. Did she really think posing in front of a window where the view was of rooftop vents was a good idea? Apparently, but I don’t.

Misty on

It suits her. She looks elegant and beautiful.

Teyha on

Stunning! Love the departure from the traditional look. The sleeves, the neckline; just beautiful & elegant. Would love to be able to see the detail a little better but no doubt it’s intricate. Love, Love.

Truthfinder on

Gorgeous! I like the fact that some brides are stepping it up and moving away from the SAME OLD STYLE of the strapless gown…that is such a tired, overdone look. She looks beautiful, elegant and modest which is SO refreshing!

Teyha on

Stunning. I love the departure from the traditional look. The neckline, the sleeves. Would love to have a closer view of the details of the dress but no doubt it’s very intricate work. Love, Love.

erica on

Sorry, but that dress is not beautiful at all. The sleeves are awful. She is a beautiful woman and would have looked much more beautiful in another dress- my opinion. First glance, wasn’t impressed.

Lilly on

No apologies necessary, Christina. It’s your dress, and you look wonderful in it.

erica on

Sorry, but not as beautiful as she could have looked. The sleeves are terrible.

whateveryousay on

omg, I loooooooove

Idaho on

I agree with Dawn and Cee cee….Simple, elegant, very stunning. Very beautiful!

cloudtripper on

wow. gorgeous. she is so tiny

Sheena on

Are you guys kidding me?? The dress is horrid. Completely ill-fitting – saggy boobs, anyone? The sleeves are stupid. Sorry, Givenchy…not your best.

Lissa on

don’t like the sleeves, otherwise the dress is lovely….

Lauren Kaminski on

Congratulations,I am a fan of her’s!=)

thenitenurse on

Love it!

Jill on

Beautiful. It looks like strapless is going out of style. I’m glad because her dress and Kelly Clarkson’s dress were not strapless and were absolutely beautiful. Strapless dresses just all tend to look alike. I love this new trend.

Mia on

Lovely congrats to her!

Bennie on

The lace and tulle veil is beautiful.

avojen on

She looks lovely! I adore that did not choose a strapless gown. Wish that trend would go away. This dress has personality.

rain on

Not a big fan of the sleeve but everything else is very beautiful.

Leslie on

Wow… she looks stunning! I love it. So elegant.

Deni on

Classy and beautiful and best of all, it’s not strapless!

Elizabeth on

I loved the dress but did not really care for the sleeves she looked like a elegant bride

jenny on

stunning!! all the best to her.I know she’s quite short but this dress makes her look ten feet tall.. beautifully and well made. bravo

Estrella on

Very classy!

paige on

The dress is lovely. And the sleeves are pretty and sophisticated on her. While there are many beautiful dresses in the world so many have the same strapless top it is nice to see something different that is still pretty, feminine, and sexy.

jabba on

Her boobs are practically down to her waist in that dress, why so droopy at her size and age?

veronica on

perfect for her!!!

Adams Family on

Simply beautiful Christina aka Wednesday.

Katherine on

Beautiful but classy… If I were getting married I might wear that…….

julie on

The second picture looks beautiful!

rms on

Gorgeous and so unique. Very classy, brings out her beauty so well.

Lorena on

I absolutely love this dress on her and her veil is exquisite. A vintage style sheath dress with a modern twist. Reminds me of the gorgeous styles she wore when the Pan Am show was airing.

vovdress on

So beautful!I like this
