She wasn’t dressing no average bride!
Ms. Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mom, is responsible for some of her oldest daughter’s most iconic looks over the years, including her wedding dress. Though Bey, 34, looked every bit the blushing bride in her strapless white gown with a ruffled train back in 2008, her mom revealed her daughter’s true feelings on that big day in a new interview.
Beyoncé and Jay Z tied the knot on April 4, 2008, but fans only got to see a glimpse of her dress in her 2011 video for “I Was Here.” The video also shows Ms. Tina attending to her daughter, making a few last-minute alterations as Beyoncé beamed. “She was so sweet to let me do that,” Tina, 62, said of designing the gown in a June 24 Today show interview. “She came back later one day and she said, ‘You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress. Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart.”
