Getty Heiress Ivy Getty Gets Married in Her Dream “Incredibly Personal” Broken-Glass Dress

Getty heiress Ivy Getty had her dream-come-true moment, when she walked the aisle in a bespoke designer bridal gown by John Galliano, on her wedding day. Getty always wanted to wear a special Galliano creation, after seeing her late grandmother Ann Getty wearing the label several times, in their San Francisco family mansion. All her bridesmaids, including the maid of honor actress Anya Taylor-Joy, also donned Galliano on the auspicious occasion.

The Ceremony

The 26-years-old socialite and heiress to the oil-tycoon Getty family Ivy Getty married photographer Tobias Alexander Engel at the San-Francisco City Hall. The Ceremony was officiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She worked together with designer Galliano to craft an “incredibly personal” Maison Margiela Haute Couture gown featuring broken glass shards. Her maid of honor actress Anya Taylor-Joy and other bridesmaids were also dressed in pale dusty grey gowns from the label. Though Galliano generally don’t do bridesmaids’ dresses due to his time crunch, he made the exception of this case getting “bewitched” by Ivy and her stories of growing up with this group of beautiful women.

The Dress

Maison Margiela creative director Galliano created an exclusive four-layered gown. Pieces of reflecting broken glass were featured all across the bodice. There was a full body corset in the bottom layer matching with Ivy’s skin tone. The next layer was a bias-cut tulle dress. A white tulle dress was fitted on the third layer for creating a kind of ‘filtrage.’ The mirror-fragments featuring dress was on the final layer, which was not fitted but hanged from the shoulders like a tunic. The designer also created a custom-made embroidered veil for Ivy featuring walnuts and guitars. This was to pay homage to the two closest people Ivy Getty had lost last year, her grandmother Ann Getty, who grew up in a ‘walnut farm,’ and her father, guitarist John Gilbert Getty.

3 Surprising Perks of Having a Wedding at Walt Disney World

Planning a wedding can be a long process, and there are quite a few things to consider during the planning process. One of them is the venue where you’ll have the wedding. While many people might plan on having it at a church, event hall, farm, in their backyard, or on a beach, not many people consider having it at Walt Disney World. However, not only will this bring you and your wedding guests excitement, but it also comes with a few surprising perks.

Wedding at Walt Disney WorldDisney World has more than 100 locations that you can choose from to have both your ceremony and welcome dinner. Most of these options are quite affordable; however, the cost ranges, and of course, Cinderella’s castle is the most expensive one on the list.

Here are just three of the many surprising perks of having your wedding at Disney World:

1. Request Food From Any Part of Disney

Most venues will allow for 100% customizable menus when it comes to the food. You can go for a standard choice and make your modifications as needed or choose something completely customized from the beginning.

An example modification to a standard food choice would be picking the Mickey-shaped waffles and having them be an action station. An action station means that a chef will prepare them in front of you and have guests choose their toppings to be added. This can be done for crepes, omelets, and more.

2. Guests Can Ride in an Empty Park

For an additional cost, your guests can embark on different events after the reception. A popular option is the “Ride Mix-in” which allows the wedding guests to go on a private ride right after the welcome dinner. With Flight of Passage, you can have your guests escorted to the ride of your choice and have no wait time.

3. Disney Planners Do Everything

Disney World has event planners that will take care of the entire planning process for you. They’ll work with your budget and make sure that you don’t go over and even finalize all, the details. If something goes wrong, the planners typically already have a solution before contacting you to let you know.
