You can justify extravagance on your wedding day because you'll only do it once. But is a Swarovski crystal wedding dress too much? Not if you're the heir to the Swarovski fortune it isn't...

Who hasn’t imagined once in a while what their dream wedding dress would be like? The one day in your lifetime where you have an excuse to look, feel and perhaps even act like the princess you know you are…

A wedding dress with how many crystals?!Swarovski crystal wedding dress

Victoria Swarovski, heir to the Swarovski crystal empire, was never going to opt for a simple design for her wedding dress. As crystals are the family business, of course her dress had to be covered in them.

In fact, the gown she wore to marry property investor Werner Murz had 500,000 of her family’s Swarovski crystals embellished on it. Yes, that’s right, half a million of the sparkly stones!

The dress also had an eight meter veil and train. It is undeniably stunning but it is not easy to wear something so beautiful.

The dress weighed an impressive 7st 3lbs – that is equivalent to roughly 46 bags of sugar. Ouch!

Our hats go off to the 23-year-old’s strength but surely the wedding workouts are meant to stop on the actual day!?

Victoria looked picture perfect as she walked down the isle is the dress which was designed by Dubai-based couture designer Michael Cinco.

Michael’s celebrity clients include Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna. He created Victoria’s custom dress by adding sleeves and crystals to one of his spring/summer 17 designs.

The Huffington Post report that the dress costs between £700,000 and £800,000… We probably won’t be investing in a dress which costs more than our house anytime soon. But a girl can dream!

The whole day was sprinkled with sparkle as Victoria paired her dress with a pair of Swarovski crystal encrusted Jimmy Choo heels. The bride’s wedding ring was also said to feature Swarovski crystals. A girl can never have too much glamour on her wedding day after all…
