Months before their wedding, Gabrielle admitted that Dwyane was calling all the shots for the nuptials.
“He realized that I was trying to turn it into a frat party with K-cups and beer pong, and he took over,” Gabrielle said, according to Us Weekly. “He really Kanye’d himself and really doubled down, and it’s his princess day, and I’m just along for the ride.”

The NBA player was so meticulous about the dress code that each male attendee received a bow tie, designed by TheTieBar.com, according to the outlet. He also wore a boutonnière by Floral Fix.
“Everyone wants to look good on their wedding day,” Dwyane told the New York Times about his big day. “And I’m not going around the back. My fiancée may have the bigger moment, but I want everyone to turn and see me when I’m walking down the aisle. I want my entrance.”
Meanwhile, the bride wore a custom Dennis Basson gown. Simply stunning!
