USA Olympic champion and gold medalist Simone Biles is officially married to Galia Lahav. Just a month after getting engaged to her partner, Houston Texans player Jonathan Owens, Biles posted that she had secured not one, but two wedding dresses from the iconic bridal brand, one of which was the first design she tried on during her fitting. Lahav is renowned for using fine sewing techniques alongside fellow interior designer Sharon Sever, and there aren’t many gowns that rival their couture work.
Biles, 25, and Owens, 27, have confirmed they will tie the knot on the beach in a destination wedding in 2023, and recently revealed the color scheme for the big day during a Q&A posted on the gymnast’s Instagram Stories. They’re opting for a gold, white, and champagne palette, so it’s safe to assume the decor, wedding party, and even some of the guests will follow that color scheme.
On July 7, Biles also gave an update on the status of the plan during an online interview with KPRC 2 anchor Keith Garvin. “We have the dress, the venue and the date. We also have the wedding planner. We know the colors and the theme. We’re about to start working on the bridesmaid dresses and Jonathan on his groom, tux or suit. We’re moving forward; we just sent our save the dates. It’s For people to give heads. We’ve got super cute magnets.”
While we can’t be sure exactly which silhouette she chose to walk down the aisle, the Galia Lahav team shared pictures of Biles going through some options during her boutique visit, where they celebrated her special moment by asking her to hold a sign that read, ” Officially a #GLBRIDE.”
Biles may have gone shopping in casual denim cutoffs paired with white sneakers, but she’s had her fair share of red carpet wins that have her ready to pull something up. She memorably wore an 88-pound dress to the 2021 Met Gala, custom designed by Aria and Athleta, and confidently embraced every trend from cutouts and high-leg slits to flowy maxi dresses. Since Biles and Owens love to travel, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Galia Lahav team included custom details that spoke to the destination the couple chose for their big day.
Ahead, wait for Biles’ big reveal and enjoy photos from her fitting.
