Even for the most organised bride, planning a wedding can be an overwhelming bedlam of spreadsheets, budget lists and colour swatches. As if this isn't daunting enough, actress Christina Ricci has revealed that she will design her own wedding dress.
Engaged to James Heerdegen, the 32 year-old star is in the process of sketching her gown with a designer, yet is keeping schtum about who it actually is.
She's not the only celebrity who has taken the plunge into designing: Anne Hathaway wore a bespoke Valentino number for her marriage to Adam Shulman in 2012, and Blake Lively was also involved in the process of designer her own dress for her wedding to Ryan Reynolds. Supermodel Kate Moss famously collaborated with designer John Galliano on her vintage gown when she tied the knot with The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince in 2011.
