‘The Pioneer Woman’: Ree Drummond Says Alex’s Wedding Was a ‘Memorable Night’
The Pioneer Woman star Ree Drummond’s eldest daughter, Alex Drummond, is married. She and her husband, Mauricio Scott, recently tied the knot. The Food Network host gave the details of her daughter’s big day.
Ree Drummond’s wedding dress
Ree wore a mother-of-the-bride dress by designer Jovani, reports The Pioneer Woman website. The Accidental Country Girl worked hard to get in shape for the wedding. She told her readers she was ‘slimming down’ so she could look her best in the dress.
Ree told her readers she found the perfect dress for Alex’s nuptials. However, she admitted to being “frightened” to try on the dress because she was unsure how the outfit would look on her.
“I have my dress, but I haven’t tried it on yet,” said Drummond on The Pioneer Woman website. “I’m too frightened. But I will, because guess what? I have started exercising and eating less, which I’ve heard can maybe result in slimming down?”
Alex Drummond’s wedding dress
Alex went wedding dress shopping earlier this year. According to Ree, her daughter found the dress almost right away. After trying on about four dresses, she knew she found the one. Ree says Alex bought her wedding dress from Warren Barrón, which is based in Dallas, Texas. She decided on a lace Monique Lhuillier wedding gown.
“The dress is simple, but the details are so feminine and beautiful,” Alex told The Pioneer Woman. “Most importantly, it was comfortable enough to wear all night, and it twirls—which was great for the dance floor.”
Where Alex Drummond got married
Alex Drummond was married on the Drummond ranch. According to The Pioneer Woman website, she considered other venues, but she kept coming back to the ranch as the best option. She had a lot of good childhood memories on the ranch, so this venue came out top on the list of possibilities. “It’s where Alex grew up, and it just feels like the right place,” says Ree on her website.
After the wedding and reception, the newlyweds and guests headed over to Ree’s restaurant, P-Town Pizza. They ate pizza, wings, and other snacks. A DJ was also there to play music during the festive occasion. Mauricio tells The Pioneer Woman that it’s Mexican tradition for a wedding to end as late as 6 in the morning.
Ree Drummond’s marriage advice for Alex Drummond
Before Alex married her husband, Ree gathered some of the best marriage advice from herself as well as friends and family. She put all the advice in the spring issue of The Pioneer Woman magazine. This is the advice Ree shared with Alex:
Although we’re told marriage is a 50/50 thing, I’ve found approaching it as 100/100 is even better. There will be times when one of you can’t bring or give as much to the marriage as the other, whether because of illness, fatigue, stress… and during those times, it’s good to think of it as 100/100 so you can fill in each other’s gaps.Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman magazine
