“I always had this vision of the big princess dress and going big, but as I got older, I realized that I wanted something a bit more simple,” the bride said while speaking to Vogue Weddings about working closely with Chanel creative director Virginie Viard on creating her three dream wedding ensembles. “Maybe ‘simple’ isn’t the right word because my dress definitely is not simple!”

Richie’s first dress, which she wore to Friday’s rehearsal dinner, was a high-necked, white-beaded long-sleeved dress. “This is like a fairy tale. It really is. It’s like an art piece,” Richie said as she tried on the dress in her final fitting at the Chanel Haute Couture salon in Paris. “I feel like a princess, I really do!”
The second dress, her wedding dress for the ceremony, featured a stunning criss-cross neckline with white sequins and beads sewn into leaf designs, a “heart design” in the middle of her chest, and “S&E” sewed inside of her dress as her “something blue.”
“It is such magic,” Richie said, describing the dress to Vogue. “I honestly think Elliot is going to love it. He is my biggest cheerleader when it comes to anything I wear. If he doesn’t cry, I’ll be very sad.”
“I am so excited. Because I’m marrying Elliot, I know that sounds cheesy – but he is the man of my dreams.”
The third and final dress Richie previewed in Vogue was a short simple structured after-party dress with the iconic Chanel camellia in the center, inspired by a Claudia Schiffer runway dress from 1993. “This, to me, is like my little girl dream,” Richie said. “I can dance, I can move,” Richie said, explaining that the after-party will be similar to a nightclub and that she planned on eating “pizza and fries in this dress.”
After saying “I do” at the traditional Jewish ceremony, which came after Richie revealed that she had converted, the duo was seen being affectionate and posing for photos together, before being joined by their families. The couple was joined by her parents Lionel Richie and Dianne Alexander, and his father Lucian Grainge, and stepmother, Caroline Grainge. Soon after, the couple was joined by her sister Nicole Richie and her father’s long-term partner Lisa Parigi. Her brother Miles was noticeably absent from the ceremony.
Also in attendance at the lavish wedding were Cameron Diaz, Paris Hilton, brothers Benji and Joel Madden, and Marianna Hewitt. The bride later shared a video of her tossing the bouquet to her wedding guests while standing on steps at the venue lined with white flowers onto her TikTok account, which debuted her new name Sofia Richie Grainge.
