The star then followed up with a gown by designer Tabik in royal blue, as well as a gold one by Lakimmy, both of which coordinated with the ceremony’s purple-and-teal color palette.

In addition to selecting her three ensembles, Williams was in charge of coordinating her family members’ attire, providing the cultural fabric for their outfits as per Nigerian Yoruba and Edo tradition.

Typically, women wear an iro and buba (a vibrant skirt and top that is usually heavily beaded) and a gele (an ornate head wrap) and carry a fan, while men sport an agbada (an oversized kaftan designed from guinea or lace) and a hat made of asoke fabric.

“It was a huge undertaking,” Williams shared of her duties. “I personally chose the fabrics that they’re going to be wearing, including their head wrap, their gele. I chose all of the colors, everything. I should be a stylist after this!”

Yet, Williams didn’t stop there — she threaded her go-big-or-go-home mentality into an additional four gowns worn throughout her and Guobadia’s American ceremony the following day.

On Saturday, the two gathered at a Methodist church in Atlanta with their 350 guests — including RHOA friends Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Monyetta Shaw, Kandi Burruss, Drew Sidora and Cynthia Bailey — for their second round of nuptials, planned by Eliana Baucicault of Elly B events.

Williams walked down the aisle in a breath-taking white lace ball gown, complete with a full beaded and lace skirt, as well as a pearl-studded crown that extended into a tulle train.

For the reception, held at the St. Regis Atlanta, Williams changed into an Albina Dyla gown. Her second gown, that was worn during the bouquet toss, was gifted to her by designer Esè Azenabor. For the afterparty, Williams wore a fringe dress with a matching hat by Albina Dyla that was dressed up with different wigs from Williams’ brand Go Naked.

“I thought, ‘Why not? It’s my last wedding forever,'” she explains simply.

Guobadia was styled for both events by Jeremiah Ogbodo, who goes by Swanky Jerry, curating the groom’s traditional Edo attire for the Nigerian ceremony. He also styled all three of Guobadia’s looks for the American wedding. Guobadia’s groomsmen were gifted with Black by Vera Wang tuxedos, exclusive to Men’s Wearhouse, for the American wedding as well.

Williams and Guobadia got engaged in May 2021 just after one month of dating, but now she’s even more head over heels over Guobadia’s new role in her life.

“It’s just going to be like, ‘My husband, my husband, my husband,'” she shares with PEOPLE. “I’m going to irritate everyone! It’s our last marriage, okay? We belong together. That is it. It’s a blessing to be able to find your person. It doesn’t happen often.”
