Tina Knowles Says Beyonce 'Maybe Wasn't So Excited' About Her Wedding Dress

Tina Knowles has been making Beyonce's clothes since her daughter went to prom, but she just recently learned that Queen Bey may not have been thrilled about all of her mother's creations.

The 62-year-old designer spoke with Today show co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford about making some of Beyonce's most important getups, including her first GRAMMY gown and her wedding formal dresses online in 2008. "She was so sweet to let me do that," Knowles said.

However, it doesn't look like she'll be making granddaughter Blue Ivy's wedding dress. "[Beyonce] came back later one day and said, 'You know, when my daughter gets married, I'm gonna let her pick out her own dress,'" Tina shared. "Oh, maybe she wasn't so excited about it at the time, but she's a sweetheart."

Tina's interview on Today aired on Friday, the same day that her youngest daughter, Solange Knowles, turned 30. The proud mother posted a flashback photo of Solange and Beyonce in a kiddie pool together, and penned a sweet message for the birthday girl.

"This is Solange's 3rd birthday party, we created a huge bootleg water world with slip and slides and pools everywhere. She had a Micheal Jackson impersonator! She thought he was really Michael, because he came in a limo! It was soo fun," Tina captioned the pic. "Now my baby has turned 30! This seems like yesterday. Happy Birthday my baby. Look how she is already pointing the toe."

After Solange got married in November 2014 to Alan Ferguson, Tina again gushed over her daughters to ET and revealed that she was ready for another grandchild. "I got two boys and a girl. Couldn't ask for better than that," she said. "But when it comes to a sibling for Blue Ivy: I'm always ready for more grandbabies."

Exclusive: Ana Khouri Launches Bridal Jewelry Collection

After nearly 15 years in business with her signature namesake line, the jeweler Ana Khouri is expanding in a surprising direction. This week, she’s launching a bridal collection at Barneys New York.

The bridal market is hugely lucrative for jewelry lines, but it is oversaturated and über competitive for a young brand to break into. Khouri, though, saw an opportunity.

“My idea was to do some rings that are within a budget…I didn’t see anything out there, and for what did exist, was far away from what we want to wear,” she said in a recent interview. So, she created a collection featuring minimal single stone bands of diamond or emerald stones within the range of $2,000-$4,000.

The girl who buys Ana Khouri’s jewelry line can often be considered within the self-purchase market—an ever expanding group of women (or men) who purchase their own jewelry rather than wait for it to be gifted to them. Her clientele appreciate jewelry, but they are primarily informed by their budget.

Khouri is also aware that the concept of marriage is more openly and widely interpreted than ever before, with brides and grooms choosing to forgo antiquated notions of wedding style all the time. In her view, “no one marriage or relationship is perfect.”

To that notion, she responded with engagement ring designs in which the band does not close but is left open. In other words, in their perfection they remain imperfect. Her smaller, yet beautiful stones accent the rings sometimes on the top of the band, off center, or without a diamond altogether.

“I didn’t want it to have a closed band because now there are every different kind of marriages, sometimes a couple just wants to live together and not get married,” Khouri said. In their way, these rings can be thought of more as symbols of commitment rather than a traditional wedding band.

Falling in love over a latte: Witney couple celebrate wedding day with Costa Coffee

WHEN Chris and Sarah from Witney celebrated their engagement, they knew they would not be able to enjoy their big day without their favourite cup of coffee.

Chris and Sarah Cummins, from Witney, used to meet at their local Costa Coffee in Woolgate during their early dating days in 2009.

They quickly became regulars, and admitted that the staff knew their names and would start making their drinks before they had even ordered.

So when Chris popped the question, the couple felt it would be only natural to have their favourite coffee at their wedding.

The new Mrs Cummins said: "When Chris and I were planning our wedding, we know we wanted to have Costa Coffee there.

"We used to meet there and we always think of it as 'our place'. The baristas are always so friendly and – of course – we love the coffee.

"We're absolutely thrilled that they could make our big day even more special and we're looking forward to enjoying many more coffees for years to come."

Costa Coffee have just one coffee cart in the whole of the UK, despite having hundreds of cafes.

But the staff went the extra mile to help their two regulars secure the cart for their big day in Chadlington, at the start of this month.

Witney barista Brendon Winter went along to their wedding to make coffees for all the guests and create special drinks for the bride and groom, with a heart stencilled on top.

Priya Farish of Costa Coffee said: "Our baristas always aim to go above and beyond to make customers happy.

"When Sarah and Chris asked if Costa could come to their wedding, we were delighted to help and immediately set about getting hold of the only Costa cart in the country. Our barista, Brendon, he always volunteers to help out and we knew he would do a fantastic job at the wedding."
