Motherly bride Beyonce Knowles
Beyonce Knowles' wedding dress was designed by her mother.
The 'Crazy In Love' singer, who married hip-hop mogul Jay-Z at his New York apartment in front of 40 guests last week, reportedly asked her mom Tina to create a long, white gown for her special day.
A source said: "Beyonce looked stunning. She wore a white dress with a low V-neck and thick straps."
Tina - who designed many of the matching outfits Beyonce and her former Destiny's Child bandmates wore when they performed - is also believed to have created a special dress for her daughter to party in after the intimate ceremony.
Meanwhile, PETA have sent the newlyweds a fake fur throw blanket in a bid to urge Beyonce to stop wearing animal pelts.
In a card accompanying the wedding present, the animal right campaigners wrote: "From all of us at PETA, we wish you much happiness in your life together. Please accept this faux-fur throw with many good wishes and a hope from us that together, you'll be a fur-free couple!"
Beyonce has been a fan of designer furs for several years and used fur in her fashion line House of Dereon, which she launched with her mother.
