Candiace Dillard of The Real Housewives of Potomac is a married woman! She tied the knot with Chris Bassett in a lavish Washington D.C. ceremony. Candiace told People that her D.C. wedding was “like a dream.” Her engagement party was shown on the RHOP. Stars on the show, Monique Samuels and Robyn Dixon, have been super supportive of Candiace’s wedding. Fans also saw on the show that Candiace was wedding planning, and her wedding budget was a big topic. Since she was having a $150,000 wedding budget, it’s no surprise that it was beautiful!
Candiace wore a custom silk organza wedding dress by New York fashion designer, Karen Sabag. (The wedding dress featured a 70-yard skirt!) The best part of the dress, is that it was drenched in divine Swarovski crystals! The dress had 80 yards of Swarovski crystals. Candiace told People, “That dress was everything I wanted it to be and then some. I knew I wanted a ballgown and I tried on several, but they just weren’t doing it. But Karen made it happen. It had the perfect drop-waist bodice, because when you’re a short girl wearing a ballgown, you have to be careful about it cutting you off on the wrong lines. And it was so light. It looked heavy, but I was really able to dance and jump around and move in it. I loved it.” Candiace wore the gorgeous dress to both the ceremony and the reception, however; for the afterparty she changed into a minidress with a halter neck and cold-shoulder sleeves.
Congrats to Candiace! The wedding photos are beautiful. I enjoyed this season of the RHOP and cannot wait for more! They always bring the drama and make me laugh.
