Hailey Bieber and Justin Bieber wed for the second time this weekend, with the bride revealing the first pictures of her Off White wedding dress on Instagram along with the custom veil. It wasn't long before fans took to social media to question whether the personalised veil, incorporating part of the couple's vows, includes an awkward typo
At long last Hailey Bieber has put us all out of our misery and started sharing pics (by photographer Corey Tenold) of her highly-anticipated wedding dress.
Designed by fashion wunderkid Virgil Abloh, of Off White, the off-the-shoulder gown features long sleeves, a fitted bodice and a flowing train, all in the most intricate floral lace.
The bridal look was then finished with an equally long, sheer veil with a special nod to the couple.
Basically, for those who haven't picked up on the subtext, Hailey looks a zillion bucks:[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/B3VMJvplCEp/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
"@virgilabloh thank you for making my vision come to life and creating my dream dress," wrote the bride. "You and your @off____white team are incredible and I’m forever grateful I got to wear your beautiful creation. ❤️"
And here's a look at the sexy backless detail:[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/B3VNRH4lTSK/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
Last but not least is the personalised veil, complete with the designer's signature quotation mark logo. This time, however, the words come straight from the couple's vows:[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/B3VLmXjlfQH/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading[/instagram]
"Till death do us part" reads the veil in bold capitalised letters. Now, whether you're a fan of the bold statement or not, there's no denying this is definitely a brave fashion move, which we're all about.
But fans were quick to question whether the vows were actually, well, written properly.
“Wait…isn’t ‘till’ spelled incorrectly? Isn’t it ’til’?” wrote one in the comments, Heart reports.
“Cute idea, but it’s too bad to see a typo on the veil" added another.
“There’s a grammatical error on your train, girl.”
Others were quick to defend the customisation, pointing out that the spelling of 'till' with two 'l's is actually correct:
No, there is not a typo on Hailey Bieber’s wedding dress.— Gibson Johns (@gibsonoma) October 7, 2019
That’s not an apostrophe before “TILL” — it’s a quote mark, and there’s a second one at the end of the phrase.
It’s the designer Virgil Abloh’s *thing.*
“TILL” is an acceptable shortening of “UNTIL.”

Because Till is the correct form, it’s a word, not an abbreviation of Until, they mean the same thing, ‘Til is an abbreviation but not grammatically correct— Mustafi Slander Account *🇯🇲 (@davdbest) October 8, 2019
"Because Till is the correct form, it’s a word, not an abbreviation of Until, they mean the same thing, ‘Til is an abbreviation but not grammatically correct."
For those playing at home, it turns out both 'til' and 'till' are commonly accepted, so there you have it, celeb wedding news with a side of grammar.
