Many brides find a way to incorporate the family business into their wedding day -- hosting the reception at their parents' restaurant, hiring a florist aunt to create the centerpieces, asking your cousin the pastry chef to design the cake -- and if you're Victoria Swarovski, and the family business is crystals, then you end up with an unbelievably sparkling gown that's just dripping in jewels.

Swarovski and her fianc?, Werner Murz, tied the knot last weekend in Italy, with the groom wearing a tuxedo with tails, and the bride in a custom gown from designer Michael Cinco, who created a sheer-bodice ballgown -- with a 19-foot train -- worthy of a princess; he described it on Instagram as "encrusted with full crystals, palette and laser-cut flowers." The dress was made with 500,000 Swarovski crystals and cost more than $800,000, reported Business Insider.

For the "Pasta and Love" themed welcome dinner the night before the wedding, where men wore white and women wore red, the bride wore a red high low dress embellished with ruby-colored crystals, also by Cinco.

And after the ceremony, Swarovski changed into a low-cut, strapless reception gown with a sleeker silhouette and shorter train -- easier to dance in, but just as sparkling.
