12 Hidden Details On Amal Clooney’s Wedding Dress You Didn’t Know About
10. De la Renta did not want her to have a dinner veil
On the highly anticipated day, Amal wore a cathedral length gown that extended past the hem of her dress. During the final wedding fitting, De La Renta was asked whether he would recommend the creation of a shorter veil for the reception portion of the event. “No, I think after the wedding you take off the veil altogether; you don’t need it anymore,” he replied. “Once you are married, you are married.” The cathedral gown was covered in the same Chantilly lace as the dress and featured matching beading and crystal embroidery.
9. Bodice was hand embroidered
The dress was designed by Oscar De La Renta in partnership with head tailor Raffaele Ilardo and the duo definitely took all the stops while designing this extravagant gown. Not only was the dress was a mille-feuille of tulle that was appliqued with fourteen yards of Chantilly lace, but the off the shoulder lace neckline and bodice was covered with intricate beading and crystals and was hand embroidered to ensure ultimate perfection and accuracy.
