Talk about an entrance! Jennifer Hudson took the black tie dress code very seriously at Ciara and Russell Wilson’s Wednesday wedding, opting for a bold-hued, floor-skimming gown by Christian Siriano.

The peach design featured a trumpet silhouette and a pleated caplet attached to the high neckline. She added a purple lip for an additional pop of color and shared a ton of snaps of the gown on Instagram — including photos of her handsome dates, fiancé David Otunga and their son, David Jr.

Hudson revealed that she definitely went for fashion over function when it came to selecting a gown for the star-studded wedding, writing on Instagram, “I got the walking down the stairs part in this dress ! Now I really gotta figure out how to walk back up the stairs.”

She also revealed the design was “definitely not made for sitting” as she struggled to find a comfortable position on the car ride over the to the ceremony

Guys this dress is definitely not made for sitting !

The bride definitely dressed for a fairytale, walking down the aisle at Peckforton Castle in Liverpool, England, in a white lace Cavalli Couture gown with bell sleeves, a lace-up corset and a head-turning train. She topped the look with a floor-length veil and bouquet of all white flowers.
