Denise Richards Reveals Reason Behind Quickie Wedding, and Why She Chose a Romper Over a Gown
Plans for Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers' wedding came together very quickly.
Why? It was all about the date!
Denise told People magazine, “Aaron and I have been together since June 2017. We kept the engagement private. He really wanted to marry on September 8 because eight means infinity. We called [wedding planner] Mindy Weiss and she did it less than 48 hours and it was beautiful.”
Designer Mark Zunino had even less time. He had to complete her lace wedding romper and detachable tulle skirt in just 24 hours.

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star explained, “I didn't want to do a traditional wedding dress. I wore a traditional dress for my first wedding, so I wanted something different this time.”
She continued, “My dress was actually a romper, which was perfect since we left the reception on Aaron's motorcycle. I didn't take the tulle skirt off until I got on his bike. I loved the skirt so much I wore it the entire evening.”
While not everyone loved the look, Richards doesn't care about online critics. “I didn't know there were so many opinions on what I wore. I stopped reading stuff about me online a long time ago. I loved what I wore — it was fun and sexy and I thought appropriate for a Malibu wedding by the beach.”
Phypers finalized his divorce from actress Nicollette Sheridan in August. Richards was previously married to Charlie Sheen from 2002-2006, and has two daughters with him — Sam, 14, and Lola, 13 — along with her adopted daughter Eloise, 7.
