The former Disney Channel star Hilary Duff got married this year to her rocker boyfriend Matthew Koma in a very non-childish dress. fishtail gown with an open back and what the designer referred to as “empowered shoulders.” The actress described it as “striking but simple.” Judging by her memorable performance in the modern version of the Cinderella tale, A Cinderella Story, from 2004, we mistakenly thought that in her own wedding, she’d go with something a little more fairy-tale style, some sort of a puffy ball-gown.
The wedding dress wasn’t just everything the actress wanted it to be from the outside, but on the inside as well: even before she knew what her wedding dress was going to look like, she knew she wanted her children’s initials sewed on the inside of the dress (Luca, 7 – from her previous marriage, and Banks – one year old, from Matthew). She explained that her children are the most important thing in her life, as well as an important part of their marriage and the ceremony, which wouldn’t have been the same without them. The wedding dress, though she’d only wear it once, would remain forever as a reminder of her special day. Thus, she wanted her children’s names to be part of it.
