Arguably the most important part of any wedding for the bride is her wedding dress. Sure, being there with all of her family and friends and, obviously, the love of her life ... that's cool. The dress, however, is what she's been dreaming about since she first heard the word "wedding" when she was 3. For Real Housewife Kim Zolciak, who's marrying her footballer fiancé Kroy Biermann tonight on lucky 11/11, that dream dress came pre-owned.
Shocker, I know. However, I guess that's what happens when you want to get married in a couture gown one month after you get engaged. I'm even more shocked to say that the dress, adorned with Swarovski crystals, pearl beads, and platinum coated thread, is absolutely stunning. The kicker: It weighs a casual 35 pounds.

Drum roll please ...
I told you it was pretty! That sweetheart Swarovski crystal top is to DIE for! Generally, I wouldn't go for that whole ruching deal around the midsection. Yet something about the way it breaks up the top and bottom works here. Without it, the dress surely isn't "Kim" enough.
You know what I like best about this gown? It's so different from anything I've ever seen before. Trust me, I watch my fair share of Say Yes to the Dress. I would expect nothing less for the woman who may be getting her own Bethenny-style Bravo spinoff show. Kim's got a big personality, and this is THE dress to match.
Best of luck to the bride and groom! Let's hope the night is as extravagant as the wedding gown. It's definitely going to be hard to compete.
