Serena Williams is getting married this weekend | 9 stylish moments that may influence her wedding look

It’s not a rumour!

Tennis champion and new mom, Serena Williams will be getting married to her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian this weekend and US news sites have not spared us any of the details they’ve managed to glean about the ceremony.

Most headlines claim the couple who welcomed their first child in September will be tying the knot this week while some even say it’s today. We also know that the wedding will be star-studded and that comes naturally as Serena’s longtime circle consists of some of entertainment’s favourite women, LaLa Anthony, Ciara, Gigi Hadid, Beyonce, Meghan Markle and the Kardashians.

Earlier in November, Serena, her sister Venus and some of their girlfriends treated themselves to a white-themed all-girl party which we would like to consider her bridal shower. For the wedding ceremony, reports have it that the couple will be taking guests all the way to Disney World with a Beauty and the Beast theme, a decision that E! News says will see Serena through multiple outfit changes for the wedding and reception.

Thus the question “What will Serena Williams wear?” becomes pertinent.

Over the years, the pro athlete has displayed an undeniable penchant for short dresses. Now that’s not to say she hasn’t hit red carpets in droolworthy, floorlength gowns but the shorter ones have won with Serena on more occasions.  In recent outings, Serena has been quite the headturner showing up in pieces drawn from the racks of some of the world’s biggest designers.

Because we haven’t a clue what and what and what Serena plans to stun in for her wedding, we decided to take a look back at some of her best fashion statements – for ideas.

In an exclusive photo from Serena’s bridal shower released to PEOPLE magazine, she chose a simple, patterned, mini, white dress

Met Gala 2017 was a halter neck affair and prior to that look, we genuinely had never seen a yummier-looking preggos woman
In 2016, Serena took thigh high slits to an all new level and she shone brighter than diamonds in that dress
Maybe this is how we know that one of her wedding dresses will have a thigh high slit
We told you she likes dresses short, didn’t we? Add comfy to that.
Not necessarily a favourite look but Serena did show off a bit of sultry in this black, bare-all number
Now this has us thinking! Will she go the feathery way for her wedding dress? Sounds like a plan. Fascinator too? Maybe!
This lace dress with cut out sides will make a gorgeous choice for her reception look.

We’ll patiently wait for the wedding photos to see how our guesses played out!
