When Eva Longoria And Tony Parker Got Hitched, Guests Got A Real Gift!

Aug 18, 2007
While San Antonio Spurs Hoopster Tony Parker married oh not so Desperate Housewife, Eva Longoria with family, friends and tons of celebrities attending the ceremony just outside Paris for a "summer wedding", the happy couple weren't the only people to get the gifts.

Each female guest received a "gift of gratitude" from the newly married couple-- Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Alhambra bracelet that is based on the French jewelry line's iconic Alhambra design. These bracelets are made of 18K yellow gold on a delicate chain with a minature mother-of-of pearl clover charm. The Sweet Alhambra is thought to bring good luck to all who wear it and the happy couple wanted everyone to have the same luck they were enjoying on this special day.

The Sweet Alhambra collection from Van Cleef & Arpels debuts in the US in October and hopefully someone will be lucky enough to snag something from the collection which includes bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other such lovely things.

Other information that may be of interest about the wedding:

The dress - No, it's not ornate, it's not covered in unbelievable works of beaded art. It's simple, modern, clean lined and elegant! The only thing overdone about the dress is the 10-foot train, but it works. I think Eva looks amazing. Do I think the dress is worth $75,000? As someone who makes replicas for a living - I know at a glance that I can make a similar style for pennies on the dollar. But that's not the point. This is a designer, one-of-a-kind, made just for the bride by a top designer - gown. That is why it is worth it. Not because it is covered in diamonds but because it is unique and perfectly, utterly her. Personally - I love the gown and I think it is a lot more elegant then some other recent wedding gowns celebrities have chosen to wear.

The Bridesmaids - one of the things I liked most from the photos was the wedding party. Eva, like many brides today, choose to allow her bridesmaids to show their own style. Each bride wore a stunning red gown with silver detailing - but each style was a little different. The end result is a coordinated yet unique wedding party that looked almost as stunning as the bride herself. Matching bridesmaids are definitely a thing of the past.

The Location - You could get married in a back alley in Paris, France and it would still be romantic, but at a historical church and a French Castle? Wow!

The Cake - this is just about the only thing I wasn't overly impressed with. I found the huge, red icing and red roses design to be a bit much. I would have liked it better in a white with red roses; perhaps with some delicate detailing on the layers - but then again, I loved the cake topper! Eva lighted it up a bit with a fun topped depicting a overly tall Tony in his basketball uniform, dribbling around a little Eva.
