Her marriage to Nick Lachey may not have lasted, but Jessica Simpson remains an iconic bride nevertheless – if only because of her much-copied Vera Wang gown. Visit any wedding forum or website and you’ll quickly realise that Jessica’s dress is one of the most-talked about celebrity wedding dresses of recent years – and it’s not hard to understand why!
The wedding itself took place on 26th October, 2002, in a Baptist church in Austin, Texas. Nick, a singer, sang a song he’d written especially for Jessica, and the couple embarked on newly married life surrounded by cameramen, recording their TV series, Newlyweds. Now newly divorced, Jessica is still dispensing wedding planning advice to other brides to be, via her book I Do: Achieving Your Dream Wedding, which contains photos of her own wedding to Nick.
