10 celebrity brides who wore sheer wedding dresses

These celebrity brides decided to incorporate sheer details into their wedding dresses. @ciara/Instagram/Samir Hussein/WireImage/Getty Images/@priyankachopra/Instagram

  • Over the years, celebrity wedding dresses have gotten more daring.

  • Eniko Parrish wore two sheer dresses on her wedding day.

  • Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Ciara both wore wedding dresses with sheer details.

Eniko Parrish wore two custom Vera Wang dresses for her wedding to Kevin Hart.

Parrish’s first dress had a sheer bodice with a tulle mermaid skirt, while her reception dress was completely sheer and made up of French lace.

The “Selling Sunset” star Christine Quinn wore two Galia Lahav gowns that cost about $50,000 for her 2019 wedding.

In an interview with Metro, Quinn’s wedding planner Lisa Lafferty said the reality star decided to wear two custom dresses by the same designer. Her ceremony dress featured a sheer cutout across her midriff.

Lafferty said Quinn paired her custom dresses with Christian Louboutin heels that the fashion designer signed on the bottom.

Six years after getting married, Behati Prinsloo shared pictures of the dress Alexander Wang designed for her 2014 wedding to Adam Levine.

Prinsloo’s dress was designed with a plunging neckline and sheer slits on both sides that went down to her thigh.

“This dress you made for my wedding, I’m still not over it haha!” she captioned a photo of her gown that she shared on her Instagram story.

Kate Middleton wore a Grace Kelly-inspired Alexander McQueen gown with sheer lace sleeves for her 2011 wedding.

Middleton paired her gown with the Queen’s Cartier Halo tiara, which was given to Queen Elizabeth by the late Queen Mother on her 18th birthday.

Nicky Hilton looked stunning in a high-neck lace Valentino gown for her wedding to James Rothschild in 2015.

Hilton’s dress was made up of three different ivory tones and was embellished with crystals, according to Valentino’s Instagram. It was also designed with a 9-foot train and a long veil to match.

Ciara wowed in a custom Roberto Cavalli Couture gown designed by creative director Peter Dundas.

Story continues

Ciara’s gown was also designed with her and Wilson’s initials embroidered into the lace on the back of it, according to E!.

Dundas told W Magazine that the dress was inspired by the fact that the couple was getting married in a castle. The designer also said that the dress only had a few daring details — including the sheer sleeves and semi-plunging neckline — because Ciara wanted it to be appropriate for her religious ceremony.

For her 2016 wedding to Rupert Murdoch, Jerry Hall wore a light-blue dress with sheer sleeves.

Hall paired her Vivienne Westwood dress with a matching headband and silver flats, while Murdoch coordinated with her in a blue suit.

Maria Menounos wore a gown with sheer long sleeves for her New Year’s Eve wedding to Keven Undergaro.

Menounos wore a Pronovias gown for her surprise live TV wedding in New York’s Times Square. The gown had a mermaid silhouette, plunging sweetheart neckline, and sheer lace sleeves.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas got married in a one-of-a-kind Ralph Lauren wedding gown.

The actress’ dress was handmade with 5,600 beads and 11,632 Swarovski crystals. She also wore a 75-foot veil.

For her wedding reception, Kaley Cuoco changed into a lace Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit with a plunging neckline.

The jumpsuit was also designed with flared legs and she paired it with white heels and a sparkly belt.

Cuoco and Cook announced in September that they were getting a divorce after three years of marriage.

90,000 The Queen of Waters and the Mermaid Flower – Water Lily

  • Insidious Flower
  • Mermaids
  • The abduction of the beautiful Melinda by the swamp king
  • Swan Flower
  • Overcome-grass

“Reeds stuck around the coast,
Reflecting in the mirror pond;
Snow-white cups of lilies
Blossomed in clear water. .. “

Early morning. There is no breeze on the lake. The water surface is like a mirror, and among this mirror, here and there, like the heads of mermaids, wonderful white water lilies with their beautiful buds, round, in the form of shields, covered with floating leaves, as it were, with wax …

And our imagination is involuntarily transferred to the far north-west, to Elsinore, to the castle of Kroneborg, with its marvelous lake, bright as a crystal, overgrown with water lilies. Mad Ophelia in a wreath of water lilies and with their bunches in her hands slowly and singing descends into the lake.Lower and lower she descends, deeper and deeper she plunges into the water and, finally, quietly carried away by the current, is carried away into the distance … , the final stanzas of her sad song are heard:

“The day is already busy,
Valentine’s day has come,
There is a girl under the window –
Is dear sleeping or is he up? ..”

This charming flower has always enjoyed the love and patronage of young people. In ancient Greece, he was considered a symbol of beauty and eloquence. Young girls made garlands from it and decorated their heads and their tunics with them. According to Theocritus, young Greek women wove a wreath of water lilies for the beautiful Helen on the day of her wedding with Tsar Menelaus and decorated the entrance to their marriage room with it.

He was loved in the same way in Ancient Rome, and on the fresco of one of the recently excavated temples in Pompeii, you can still see water lily flowers adorning winged gods and geniuses.

This wondrous water lily, according to one Greek legend, arose from the body of a charming nymph who died of love and jealousy for Hercules, who remained cold to her.From her, she also received her scientific name nymphaea (Nymphaea).

As an echo, probably, of this legend in ancient Germanic tales, it is told that nymph-nyxes constantly live in ponds and lakes among these flowers and reeds. The upper part of the body of these water beauties is beautifully built beautiful women with an always smiling friendly face, and the lower part is an ugly fish tail. They lure people into the water and drag them to the bottom, into a wet, premature grave.

But on the other hand, this lovely flower itself, in its properties, has many similarities with these water maidens. He also attracts everyone with his beauty and also destroys those who are fond of him. More than once there were cases when those who wanted to pluck lovely water lilies drowned, having swum too far into the depth surrounding these flowers, or suffocated under the water, entangled in their long underwater stems. They are especially dangerous for children, who often become victims of their desire to get them at all costs.

In the Black Forest in Germany, there is even a large beautiful lake called the Mummelsee, from the old German word “die Mummel” – a nymph, with which it seems to be inhabited in great numbers.

The popular belief says that these nymphs hide here in flowers and on the leaves of water lilies, together with tiny elves, for whom these flowers serve as boats or boats. At midnight, the nymphs begin to dance in a circle and, whirling in a whirlwind, carry away people passing by the lake.These round dances are especially lively and cheerful on bright moonlit nights. And woe to that brave man who would take it into his head to pick the lilies growing on the lake. The nymphs guarding them seize him and carry him with them into the depths, into their underwater kingdom; and even if he could somehow escape from them, his grief would dry up. This belief is very poetically told by the German poet Schreiber in his poem: “Mermaid Lake”:

“High on a mountain covered with fir trees lies a black lake, and on this lake floats a lily white as snow.One day a shepherd boy comes to this lake with a nut branch in his hands and says: “I want to get this wonderful lily for myself at all costs.” He pulls her already safely to the overgrown sedge bank, when suddenly a white hand appears from the water. She plunges the lily into the depths, into the underwater kingdom, and says: “Come with me, dear, I will reveal many great secrets to you. At the bottom, the lily that you like so deeply rooted, I will pick it for you if you surrender to me. ” Then the boy is horrified. He runs from the lake, but he can’t drive away from himself the thoughts of a lily white as snow.And since then he has wandered in the mountains with grief devouring his soul, and no one can say where he has gone. ”

In Slavic mythology, all these mummel, nymphs and nyx are replaced by mermaids, who, sometimes appearing in Germanic legends, play there, as we will see later, usually already secondary roles and are, as it were, subordinate nyx – their slaves.

Markevich, a well-known collector of Little Russian legends, says about our mermaids: “Mermaids are water beauties; they are pale, but their features are expressive, the camp is magical, the scythe is below the knees.At night, under the moon, they come out on the shores of lakes, rivers and streams naked, in wreaths of sedges and tree branches.

“Black braids, crumbling,
Running from bare shoulders,
Bending over the waves,
Following the maidens they swim.
A high chest sways
Voluptuously between the waters –
Before her the wave will calm down
And thoughtfully will pass … “

Coming ashore, the mermaids sit on the grass, comb their braids or lead round dances. Sometimes they hide in the bushes, in the grass. More and more often they are called to the earth by the dawn.At dawn, when the peasant girls go to the river for water, the mermaids, hiding, are waiting for them. A careless misfortune, who forgot to take wormwood with her, which serves as a protective talisman against them. Mermaids rush to the girl, tickle her to death, and drag her into the river with them. The same thing befalls a guy who has not stocked up on wormwood or is carried away by the beauty of a mermaid. ”

Mermaids live in underwater crystal chambers built from shells, where pearls, yachts, silver and corals glitter. Emerald streams roll along their bottom, dotted with multi-colored pebbles, or waterfalls fall to the very palaces. The sun shines through the water into these dwellings, and the moon and the stars summon the mermaids to the shore.

These mermaids sometimes turn into our water lilies-water lilies. Let’s listen to the old German legend told by Balabanova in her article “Thuringia in Pictures”:

“One of the most beautiful landscapes of the famous Thuringian Forest in Germany, as you know, is the Schwarztal, where Schwarzburg Castle rises on a huge rock. This castle was restored in the 18th century, as the old one burned down to the ground.Tradition tells that in the old pond of this castle there lived a few hundred years ago one evil nymph-nyx, who had two lovely young mermaids in her service.

Mermaids often came to watch the festivities in the castle, and then two knights noticed them. Soon the mermaids of these knights fell in love and were ready to leave the waters and follow them. But the old nyxa suspected the mermaids of intercourse with the inhabitants of the castle and decided to watch them. With the help of magic, she translated all the hours of the castle, and the mermaids could only come out of the water from sunset until midnight.At midnight, they should always be in the pond.

Our young mermaids were merrily talking in the knight’s hall, not anticipating any imminent disaster. On the big clock of the castle, it struck eleven, there was still a whole hour until midnight, and meanwhile, on the church clock of Schwarzburg, it had already struck twelve – midnight was announced by the watchman.

Poor mermaids rushed to the pond to run. The knights also ran after them, but did not manage to save them. When they reached the pond, in the place where the white dresses of mermaids flashed a minute before, two white water lilies rose from the water: the evil nyxa turned the mermaids into these flowers.

These water lilies bloomed for a long time, the knights mourned their dear lovers for a long time, but by autumn the flowers wilted, and the knights went to the Holy Land and did not return . ..

The pond since then began to dry up, and soon there was not enough water in it even for the evil nyx – she had to suffocate in that pond. Now this pond stands completely dry, not filling with water even in autumn storms and spring floods … “

According to another beautiful Italian legend, reported by Amfitheatrov, these are the children of the Italian beauty Countess Melinda, carried away in the mud by the swamp king.

The swamp king living in the swamps of the Maremma was so ugly that no one wanted to marry him – neither earthly girls nor magic fairies.

Black, dirty, molded from swamp clay, all enveloped in algae, he was a disgusting monster.

His eyes shone a little, like rotten things. Instead of ears, it had empty slug shells, and instead of legs, it had frog paws.

And this monster decided to get a wife for himself. But how to do that? How to find such a girl, and, moreover, still beautiful, as he wanted, who would agree to this?

I thought and thought and decided to get it by trick.

Hearing that a beautiful woman, golden-haired Melinda, the daughter of a countess, lives on the border of his swamps, he decided to lure her to him and take her by force.

It was only necessary to wait for a chance, and this case soon presented itself.

One of the young countess’s maids, who went to the swamp, suddenly noticed wonderful yellow egg-pods that she had never seen before 1 and came running to tell her about it.

Melinda, who was very fond of flowers, decided to go and see them, went down from the mountain where their castle was located, to the quagmire itself and was really so amazed at the yellowish egg-pods she had never seen that she wanted to get them.

But the flowers grew right in the swamp, in the middle of the bog, and Melinda could not reach them with her hand.

In despair, she walked along the shore and wondered how she could get to them. And at that time I noticed a rotten, completely black stump lying on the shore and decided to cross over to it.

Jumping like a goat, she stepped on him and reached for the flower to pick it, when suddenly this stump came to life, grabbed her in his arms and dragged her to the bottom.

It turned out that this stump was nothing more than the swamp king himself lying motionless.

The maid, seeing the death of her mistress, was confused and hastened to report this misfortune to the old countess.

The Countess hastened to the swamp, but what could she have done, not even knowing the place where her daughter was sucked in the ooze ?!

Heartbroken, she went every day to the shores of this cursed swamp and shed bitter tears, expecting that maybe someone or something would help.

Suddenly, one autumn, before the birds flew south, a stork approached her and, to her great surprise, said in a human voice:

– Don’t kill yourself, Countess.Your daughter is alive. She was kidnapped by the king of the swamps – the ruler of this maremma. If you want to hear about her, go to the sorcerer who lives here on the Maremma. He knows everything and will tell you.

The Countess obeyed, found out in detail where this sorcerer lives, and, taking with her a pile of gold, went to him and asked him to help.

The sorcerer, having received the gold, thought and said: “Well, call your daughter nine in the morning and nine in the evening and nine times at the place where she drowned.If she has not yet become the wife of the king of the swamps, he will have to let her go. ”

And so the countess called her nine morning and evening dawns, and when she finally reached the last dawn, she suddenly heard a voice emerging from the swamp:

– You are calling me late, mom. I am already the wife of the king of the swamp and am condemned to remain his slave forever. This is the last time I speak to you. Winter is coming, and my husband and I will doze off on a muddy bed until next spring. In the summer I will let you know that I am alive and remember you.

Winter has passed, spring has passed, summer has come.

With a pain in her heart, the Countess went to the accursed swamp to see if she would see the news promised to her by her daughter.

She stood, stood, looked, looked and suddenly noticed on the surface of the water, in the middle of a clean swamp, a wondrous white flower – a water lily – that had risen on a long stalk.

Looking at its wonderful, shiny, like satin, petals, slightly rosy, like a ray of pink dawn, the poor countess recognized the color of her daughter’s face, and the numerous stamens that filled its middle were golden, like Melinda’s hair.

And the countess realized that in front of her was her granddaughter – the child of Melinda’s union with the king of the swamps. And since then, for many years, every year Melinda has covered the quagmire with a whole carpet of white water lilies, announcing that she is alive and forever young and beautiful reigns over the swamp.

And every year, every day, whenever she could, the old countess went to the swamp until her death, admired the flowers – her granddaughters and consoled herself with the thought that if her daughter was no longer in this world, then in the depths of the waters of her swamp kingdom She is still alive and well. ..

But the charm of the water lily acts enchantingly not only on Europeans: there are many legends about it among the peoples of other parts of the world.

Particularly poetic is the legend of the North American Indians, who claim that the water lily was formed from sparks that fell from the polar and evening stars at the time when they collided, arguing among themselves over the possession of an arrow, which at the moment of death was thrown into the sky alone great Indian chief.

The water lily, or the mermaid flower, as it was also often called before, has been from time immemorial an object of worship and even adoration among the North-West Germans, and especially among the Frisians and Zeelands.They called it the swan flower and revered it so highly that, having placed 7 such flowers in their coat of arms, they considered themselves invincible under this banner. In the song of the gudruns, in the place where the blue banner of King Gerwig von Seewen is described, it is said that swan flowers flutter on it. These flowers have survived to this day on the Frisian banner 2 and in the coat of arms of the province of Groningen. The plant is also called “Pompe” friezes, and its flowers are called sea leaves (Seeblatter).

In the Middle Ages, the white water lily flower was still considered a symbol of purity, and therefore its seeds were recommended as a means of tempering passions.As a result, they were available at this time in almost all monasteries and they were ordered to be given to monks and nuns. They were especially used by hermits who had retired from the world, who wanted to thereby mortify their flesh. According to the latest research, however, the attribution of this property to the seeds turned out to be incorrect.

These seeds were also used by singers to strengthen and strengthen their voices. In addition, it was believed that this remedy helps against cramps and dizziness, and the rhizome of the plant – in the absence of appetite.The treatment was carried out not so much by ingestion as by hanging it by the patient’s bed. At the same time, for the preparation of medicines, it was recommended to deal with plants with special precautions: to pluck it only at night, to dry it in the shade on the north side and certainly in a hanging position, since otherwise the medicinal principle will not pass into the patient’s body and will not be able to expel the disease from it …

And in general, collecting water lily flowers for medicinal purposes, one had to act in a completely different way than with other flowers: to tear at only known hours, plugging his ears and addressing them beforehand with affectionate words.Having talked in this way, one should suddenly reach out and pick the flower. Cutting off with scissors, a knife, or in general what sharp was strictly forbidden, otherwise the stem will begin to bleed and the cutter will be pursued by heavy dreams or even be drawn into the water by water spirits indignant at such an act.

Flowers of white water lilies should never be brought into the house, as this threatened the death of all livestock.

The water lily also used mystical and medicinal value among our Slavic ancestors, and in the Trans-Caspian region – even to this day.In this sense, she wore and is called “overpowering”. This name, according to Afanasyev 3 , comes from the word “to overcome”, and moreover in the meaning: to overcome evil spirits and ailments. “Whoever finds a grass-beating,” says one folk herbalist, “will find talent for himself.”

Our ancestors treated toothache and toothache with a decoction of conquest, and moreover, this decoction was considered by them as a love drink, capable of awakening tender feelings in the hearts of cruel beauties; and with the rhizome, the shepherds walked around the field so that not a single cattle was lost.

The Slavs attributed to him an important protective value during travels. Anyone who went to a foreign land (especially a merchant), according to the same Afanasyev, had to stock up on this herb, since it was said about it: “wherever he goes, he will find a lot of good. ” And so, setting off on a long journey, cautious people protected themselves with the following spell:

“I am driving in an open field, and in an open field, an overpower-grass grows.

Overcome Grass! I didn’t water you, I didn’t give birth to you; your mother gave birth – the earth is cheese, you were watered by simple-haired girls, hand-rolled women.

Overcome Grass! Defeat evil people; they would not dashingly think of us, they would not think bad, if you drive away the sorcerer, the snitch.

Overcome Grass! Defeat me high mountains, low valleys, blue lakes, steep banks, dark forests, hemp and decks! .. I will hide you, overpower-grass, by a zealous heart all the way and along the entire path. ”

The ancient Serbs had the same respect for this plant. They had such a song about him:

“If the woman knew,
What is the overcoming-grass,
I would sew it into my belt
And I would wear it on myself.”

1 Plant from the same family. nymphaean, closely related to the water lily.
2 Friesians are a nationality in the Netherlands and Germany.
