"There was no question. The moment I saw it, I knew it was my dress," Doherty says of her first Monique Lhuillier gown, which featured a sweetheart bodice and a garnet sash. "I felt like a fairytale princess."
The actress' second Lhuillier gown "was blush with lots and lots of tulle," Doherty says. As for the third? "I took the lace from my mom's wedding gown, designed a dress and had it made," the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum tells Us Weekly of the knee-length reception dress. "It was my get-down and be-sexy bridal dress!"
Iswarienko, who wore a Ralph Lauren tuxedo, mimicked his bride by changing his tie each time Doherty donned a new dress. "It was my idea" Doherty insists.
The couple's Malibu nuptials will be part of the upcoming WE reality show Shannen Says, premiering in 2012.
