    Beyonce A Fabulous Bride in Wedding Video

    Beyonce A Fabulous Bride In Wedding

    Beyonce is a fabulous bride in this wedding video performed for here latest single “Best Thing I Never Had”

    The new single is phenomenal and apart of her new album “4” which will certainly gross well as her adoring fans are just so excited to have her back after her long music hiatus.

    But the draw for me as a wedding planner is how absolutely gorgeous she looks as a bride, revealing a side of her that many of her adorning fan have been longing for – a glimpse of what her wedding day may have looked like.

    And if the video is any indication it was clearly a spectacular and elegant affair with careful attention to every little details. Not to mention the effective personalization of her entire day, exactly what I encourage every bride to do – make you wedding day a celebration of you and your husband.

    Your wedding should be centered around you and your feelings as you draw your family and friends into a memorable celebration of your style and personality.

    And I think Beyonce nailed it in this video in everything from the way she decided to be sensual, to wearing multiple outfits and even the decorations and colours used.

    Beyoncé opens the video wearing a sexy white lacy corset lingerie complete with garters by Agent Provocateur in an elegantly decorated room preparing for her wedding.  As she move from playing with a white rose to a tiara, and a veil while getting dressed.

    And then taking us on a journey of her wedding day changing her outfit two other times. She walks down the aisle in a gorgeous strapless ball gown style wedding dress with an embroidered and embellished bodice and a silk bow by Baracci Beverley Hills.  And after the wedding ceremony she celebrates her reception in a ivory silk V-neck style gown by Vera Wang.

    Finally, the wedding reception was decorated in white flowers with dimly lit candles everywhere creating the atmosphere for dancing and having fun. As the video ends we see Beyonce and her husband dancing happily with friends and family at their wedding.

    The one thing I did not like about the wedding is that it was not in the Bahamas!

    Check out the video and let me know what you think…
