Stacy Keibler acknowledges it was a tall order. She needed an amazing custom-made wedding dress — in just two weeks time. So when she called fashion designer Monique Lhuillier to see if she’d take on the task, Keibler was strategic.

“I waited until she got home from New York Fashion Week and literally called her the next day,” she says. “I was like, ‘Uh, hey, could you make me a very special dress for a very special occasion in less than two weeks?’ And she says, ‘Yes.’ I’m like, ‘Really? Did you hear the part about two weeks?'”

Lhuillier, who was sworn to secrecy about the surprise March 8 wedding plan, didn’t blink. After collaborating with Keibler on a vision — “a perfect balance of a little bohemian, easy and effortless while still [looking like] a bride” — Lhuillier created the perfect dress: a delicate Chantilly lace v-neck bodice that adorned an ethereal, silk chiffon draped skirt.

“She’s a master,” says Keibler, 34, who often had two fittings a day until the dress was finished — just one day before she left for the Punta Mita, Mexico, wedding. “Luckily it all worked out perfectly!” Of course Keibler wasn’t the only one to give the dress a thumbs up. Of watching his bride walk down the aisle, groom Jared Pobre, 39, raves, “She looked so beautiful it was surreal.”

I may be wrong, but this wedding seemed a little rushed and a little too publicized. Her life though

Okay. Enough with this girl already. She’s moved on. Can we?

I agree with C above, it’s too publicized for a secret wedding. Blake Lively got married and nothing was every published about her wedding. If it’s a secret wedding it should stay that way.

quick quick! Not so sure it’s love, revenge or new baby on the way. Maybe it’s ‘meant to be’…who knows…

Mission accomplished – beautiful bride, beautiful dress but what has happened to Vera Wang? Not the go to girl any more? Used to be years ago that every Hollywood bride wore a VW dress but everything is coming up Lhuillier now. The tides have changed. Stacy looks beach bride perfect.

She looked beautiful but I thought the dress was just okay.

I do have a wonder though, why Hollywood never complains how George never commits to anyone? He seems very selfish.

NEL, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’s collaborated with Martha Stewart on their wedding and the wedding pictures were in Martha Stewart Living
