Hailey and Justin Bieber said ‘I do’ last week in front of their closest friends and family during an intimate ceremony and reception at the exclusive Palmetto Bluffs resort in South Carolina. The young couple and their guests have been sharing pics from the special night, but we had yet to see Hailey’s wedding ceremony dress. That is, until now. The model shared her first pic of the dress she said yes to on Monday night and no surprise, it’s a stunner.
Hailey enlisted celebrity favourite Off-White designer and Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh to create her dress. Abloh and Hailey worked together to create the custom off the shoulder, backless lace dress, with the new Mrs. Bieber thanking Abloh on Instagram. “Thank you for making my vision come to life and creating my dream dress. You and your @off_white team are incredible and I’m forever grateful I got to wear your beautiful creation.”
The Biebers and Abloh all shared snaps of Hailey’s dress on social media, as well as her custom veil, which included Abloh’s signature block print and the message “Till Death Do Us Part” along the bottom of the cathedral-style veil. Abloh included a sweet note for the newlyweds on his Insta, writing “When @haileybieber asks if you want to design a wedding dress… that’s a “yes” too. Love you guys since time, for time.” Abloh’s gallery also includes a close-up and the Biebers’ hands to show off their new wedding bands, as well as Hailey’s stunning oval Solow & Co engagement ring.
Giving fans a behind the scenes view into the making of Hailey’s romantic mermaid-style gown, Abloh also uploaded early sketches of the dress which show the detail in the lace.

Justin also shared several pictures of his new bride in her gown, which gives a better view of the beautiful backless cut of the dress. The popstar kept things traditional in his custom black Céline tux designed by Hedi Slimane, who also created the couple’s custom leather jackets worn during the reception.

Justin is a longtime fan of Abloh’s designs, even having a run-in with police earlier this year when wearing the Off-White limited edition Nike Air Max 90s, which included Abloh’s signature zip-tie, a look that makes it appear as though the shoes have been stolen. A native of Chicago and a longtime friend of Kanye West, Abloh began his rise to prominence when he teamed up with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami to create the cover artwork for West’s 2010 album Graduation.
Abloh later became the creative director for West’s DONDA creative agency and was the artist director for his 2011 Watch The Throne album with Jay-Z. Abloh launched his Off-White streetwear brand in 2013 and began his work with Louis Vuitton in 2018. On November 1, Abloh is set to release his limited edition Markerad line with Ikea.
