Become a Top Wedding Planner – Get Celebrity Wedding Ideas – Shannen Doherty and Kurt Iswarienko


Celebrity weddings can provide inspiration for you and your brides.

Actress Shannen Doherty married photographer Kurt Iswarienko at sunset on October 15 in the Malibu Hills. Here are details from her wedding that you may be able to use on the weddings that you plan.

Wedding Attire

Shannen wore three different gowns. Two were by Monique Lhuillier (one was off-white with a plum sash and the other blush toned) and the third was made from lace from her mother’s wedding gown.

A bride might want to wear her mother’s gown, but find that it doesn’t fit or that it was not properly stored and has not stood the test of time. Using lace from a mother’s gown and having a designer or dressmaker create a dress from it that can be worn on a bride’s wedding day is a good alternative.

The groom wore a black Ralph Lauren tux and changed ties each time Shannen changed her dress.

When Kris Humphries married Kim Kardashian, he changed his attire when she did. Not every groom is going to want to do that but if your bride would like her groom to look a little different when she does, suggest her groom change ties, like Kurt. He may want to also change his shirt to have a completely different look.

The attendants and guests wore black

Guests were asked to wear black and it is not unusual brides today to ask that guests dress in a specific color or style in order for them to be part of the theme of the wedding.


Shannen carried a bouquet that included plum calla lilies and cream and blush roses.

If a bride wants to add color to a black and white, all white or all black wedding, do it with flowers.


Catered by Nathaniel Neubauer of Contemporary Catering, the guests ate rib eye steak, branzino (sea bass) and beef and vegetable empanadas. The afterparty included truffle-infused deep-fried mac ‘n’ cheese squares.

Mac ‘n’ cheese creations are very popular today. Caterers can make them in a variety of ways so if your bride wants comfort food, suggest she talk to her caterer about a mac ‘n’ cheese option or even a mac ‘n’ cheese bar.


Master Mixologist James Moreland created a cocktail called “Truly Yours” that included vodka, champagne, pomegranate and pear.

Talk to the bartender in advance about creating a signature drink for the couple. A bride can have this cocktail served as her only hard liquor drink to avoid the expense of having a full bar.


By Cupcake Couture of Manhattan Beach, the cake was 5 tiers of square cakes, had white-chocolate frosting, and featured their monogram in black and was accented with blush roses.

The cake followed the theme colors of their wedding, a detail that you want to make sure gets carried out.

Shannen’s wedding will be seen next year in her reality television show ,”Shannen Says,” that will air on the WEtv network. The show is about how she planned her wedding.

In the meantime, you can see photographs in the current issue of US Weekly Magazine and online at PopSugar.
