For the ceremony, Richie wore a Marchesa confection that required 100 yards of hand-draped silk organza and tulle, to turn Richie into what looked like a couture swan. The lace sleeves were even embroidered with cursive reading “Nicole Richie & Joel Madden.”And that’s only the first dress! The second was a more manageable tight-fitting lace gown, but was still equally exquisite.
There were just 130 guests at the lavish affair, in which the couples two toddlers played a part!
“Harlow didn’t sprinkle the flowers, she just kept putting handfuls of them on the floor,” Nicole said of her daughter, who was the flower girl. Sparrow acted as ring-bearer.
The maid-of-honor was most certainly not Nicole’s former BFF Paris Hilton…she wasn’t even invited!
“We only wanted to celebrate with the people who we love and who care about us,” Richie explained. Burn.
“Joel let me organize my dream wedding,” Nicole said. I’ll say: I’m sure the dresses cost more than the rest of the thing!
