Monica's Custom Wedding Gown

Monica threw another wedding for herself and Shannon Brown last week -- and you have to see her dress!

After eloping last November, Monica and LA Laker Shannon Brown decided they needed to have a big day after all -- if only to celebrate their love with family and friends. And big it was, with 340 guests and a 40-piece gospel choir!

Monica's gorgeous wedding gown, pictured at right in this week's issue of Us Weekly, was a corseted mermaid gazar silk draped gown with twisting satin organza custom designed by Stephane Rolland, with a graphic waves train embroidered with crystals. The finishing touch? $1 million worth of Joel Rosenberg jewels. We're thinking that was her something borrowed. Monica later changed into a blue Rolland dress for the reception.

Those 340 guests dined on short ribs, Fatburgers and a lemon horse-and-carriage cake at a reception put together by wedding planner to the stars Mindy Weiss.

Monica has two kids from a previous relationship -- Rodney, age six, and Romelo, age three -- and said her extra wedding day ranks right up there. "Other than when my kids were born it was the best day of my life!" she said.

Now that I can see the gown better its not that bad, but the bottom looks like a car wash. A simple chignon hairdo would have been best for such a busy gown. Why do sista's need to be so gaudy, too much going on with the gown, perhaps one focal design which would have knocked you off your feet. http://bit.ly/qdQc3Y
