With her faultless appearances and enviable figure, it's hard to believe that Michelle Keegan suffered any kind of wedding dress drama in the months leading up to her big day. The actress wore an exquisite bespoke ivory gown designed by Galia Lahav, but the glamorous creation wasn't the original outfit she had in mind.

Michelle Keegan wore an exquisite bespoke ivory gown by Galia Lahav
"I had ordered another dress back in August but when I tried it again three months ago I didn't like it," said Michelle. "It wasn't the dress for me."
"I was struggling what to wear, what designer to go with, I was Googling and Instagramming all day and came across Galia, an Israeli designer not based in London," she added. "But then I saw that they were doing a trunk show at London on a weekend at Browns. They had clients booked all day but I managed to go in very early."
"I asked for more lace details around the deep V back," said Michelle
The final dress was custom-made for Michelle and featured French lace, Swarovski crystals, a cascading silk tulle fishtail and a plunging lace-trimmed deep-V back, which the star had specifically requested.
"I asked for the shape of neck to be changed and I had more lace details around the deep V back," said Michelle.
The 27-year-old teamed the dress that everyone has been talking about with a delicate Italian veil from Peter Langner. "The train of the veil was huge," said Michelle. "But I'm only going to get married once and it was always my dream to have a really long, dramatic veil."
