Gemstone Heiress Victoria Swarovski Ties the Knot in 500,000 Crystals -- See the Stunning Wedding Pics!
By Desiree Murphy
When your family owns the Swarovski crystal empire, it would be a crime not to show up to your wedding in sparkles!
Gemstone heiress Victoria Swarovski said "I do" to property mogul Werner Mürz in a lavish wedding at the Cathedral of San Giusto in Trieste, Italy, over the weekend, and as expected, her stunning gown was glitz galore.
Swarovski custom-designed the dress with help from designer Michael Cinco, who's worked with A-list stars like Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
The gown featured a 26 foot veil and train and was embellished with 500,000 of her family's crystals. She topped off the look with sparkly earrings and Jimmy Choo heels.

Later, the 23-year-old bride slipped into two different dresses for the reception. One was a strapless white floor-length gown, the other was a deep red high-low couture dress, also custom-designed by Cinco and featuring plenty of crystals.
"I said YES to the love of my life," Swarovski wrote on Instagram, accompanied with a photo of her and her husband sharing a sweet smooch.
Their nuptials reportedly took place over three days, with the newlyweds kicking off the festivities with a welcome dinner at The Piazetta at the Falisia Resort and Spa and ending it with a farewell brunch the day after the wedding. In addition to Swarovski's dress, the reception venue was also decorated with thousands of crystals for the 250 guests to marvel over as they celebrated the couple's special day.

The younger sister of Kate Middleton looked astonishing in a custom-made white Giles Deacon gown with capped sleeves, a corseted bodice, draped front and heart-shaped detail in the back.
