In the Special Occasion Dress Industry 3 Weddings are Better than 1: Just Ask Shania Twain!

Special Occasion Dresses NYCWe knew that 2011 would be a big year for celebrity weddings and special occasion dresses… and 2011 began on Saturday, January 1st with the first celebrity wedding of the year!  That’s right, Shania Twain got things started off on January 1st 2011 as the country star tied the knot with Swiss Nestle executive Frederic Thiebaud.  But it is doubtful that anyone was drinking hot chocolate as the wedding was held in sunny Puerto Rico (no passport was necessary).

Besides the wedding dress, the wedding had its share of quality special occasion dresses.  While there were just 40 of their closest family and friends, there were not too many special occasion dresses on hand – but the quality of those being worn by the guests in attendance must’ve been spectacular.

At Blake and Company’s New York City wholesale mother of the bride dress and special occasion dress showroom, we’re wondering if any of the guests opted to welcome 2011 with the first honeysuckle special occasion dress of the year.  One thing is for sure – Marie-Anne Thiebaud wasn’t dressed in a special occasion dress for the wedding.  In case you didn’t know, Marie-Anne Thiebaud is the ex-wife of Shania Twain’s new husband.  But, it gets even stranger than that – Marie-Anne Thiebaud was Twain’s long time assistant who had an affair with and later married Twain’s first husband, Robert Lange.

So, in an example of truth being stranger than fiction – in essence, the two couples switched partners.  Anyway you cut it, in the special occasion dress industry – this is good news – it means 3 weddings – and that means triple the special occasion dresses!
