• Celine Dion's wedding was iconic
  • Her wedding tiara was beautiful but hurt her badly
  • THIS is why she ended up in the hospital after

In an eye-opening revelation to 'Vogue's' 'Life in Looks' series, the iconic Celine Dion shared the painful yet unforgettable experience of wearing a massive, crystals-encrusted tiara during her 1994 wedding. It was the sort of thing many brides dream about, but it suddenly turned into a nightmare

A major wedding anecdote

Celine Dion has revealed how the massive tiara she wore to her wedding sent her to the hospital with an injury.

This piece delves into the details of the incident that led to an unexpected hospital visit, showcasing the blend of glamour, dedication, and love that marked Dion's special day with her late husband, René Angélil.

It's no secret that celebrities go to great lengths for their big day, but Celine Dion's wedding tiara tale takes the cake!

In a candid chat with 'Vogue', the legendary "My Heart Will Go On" songstress opened up about her jaw-dropping wedding accessory that weighed a whopping seven pounds and boasted 2,000 Swarovski crystals. But beauty comes at a price, and for Dion, it was a literal headache!

Yes, you read that right! The tiara wasn't just placed delicately on her head; it was "sewn" on. Imagine walking down the aisle, trying to balance a nearly seven-pound crown on your head. Dion did just that at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montréal. 

"I practiced and everything is smooth and everything is fine, but when I had to walk in the cathedral, it’s no wooden floor, it’s a carpet. I had an immediate facelift," she recalled. "And it’s like: ‘Am I going to make it? Am I going to make it to my future husband? But like I said: ‘Oh, I’m Gonna Run to You.’ I did."

The wedding went off without a hitch, but removing the tiara revealed a painful surprise: a cut so deep it left a swelling the size of an egg on her forehead.

"I had a cut because the pressure was too much," Dion shared. The next day's mirror revealed a sight so alarming it sent her straight to the doctor, resulting in a three-week course of antibiotics for the swelling.

After Dion removed the crystal-embellished headpiece — which she was sewn into — she noticed a cut on her forehead. "The next day, I wake up [and had a bump] the size of an egg on my forehead,” she said. "I looked at my husband and said, ‘It’s too late now, we’re married.’"

"This is a moment that will be with me for the rest of my life," she gushed. "The dress couldn’t have been big enough. I could have had three times the size on my head. I could have had six different dresses that night, because he was and he’s still such a wonderful human being. … I still feel his presence so much."

Despite the mishap, Dion wouldn't change a thing about her special day. Reflecting on her late husband, who passed away in 2016, she expressed how his presence is still felt strongly.

"He was, and still is, such a wonderful human being," Dion said, highlighting the deep love and admiration she holds for Angélil.
