Simone Biles has spilled the details behind her wedding attire after buying her dress for just £100.
The US gymnast - now Simone Biles Owens - first revealed she was engaged to American football safety for the Houston Texans Jonathan Owens in February last year.
The pair tied the knot on Saturday (22 April) during an intimate courthouse wedding in Houston and Biles has since revealed she got her wedding outfit together in the space of a week, even only ordering her dress at the last minute and from an online store too.
In a post shared to her Instagram story, Biles explains she originally bought courthouse shoes from Amazon, but because they weren't 'comfy at all' - joking she has 'stubby toddler feet' - swapped them out for a pair pictured in the rooftop pictures from the wedding.
"These were from Pretty Little Thing - wide fit," she added.
The Pretty Little Thing sandals are currently on sale for a reduced price of $32 (£26), down from $58 (£47), as per Glamour.
But what about the dress?
The 26-year-old revealed her dress had also been bought from an online store, one called Selfie Leslie.
On Selfie Leslie's site, the dress - called the 'August Tiered Frill Midi Dress White' - retails at an affordable $199.99 (£96).
The description reads: "You will steal the show in our gorgeous Auguste mini dress. Featuring a plunging neckline and tiered frill detail. Wear it to a bachelorette or a special birthday celebration. Team it with nude heels and a clutch for a look that'll have you flooded with compliments."
In her Instagram story, the gymnast also admitted her wedding attire all came together extremely last minute.
Biles added: "Everything was ordered this week... dress, wedding bands, shoes, bouquet.
"Not quite prepared for the courthouse ceremony as I am for the big wedding."
The intimate courthouse wedding is the first of Biles and Owens' wedding celebrations, with the pair set to also share their vows in front of friends and family during a second 'big' ceremony.
