Apparently, that gown on the cover of Uptown Magazine was just a wedding dress Cynthia Bailey was modeling, because Essence snagged a pic from Cynthia's actual wedding, and her real wedding dress is nothing like the simple, feathery frock she donned on the cover of Uptown.

On her wedding day, Cynthia rocked a très couture steely grey gown, complete with a neck wrap and huge asymmetrical collar. Peter definitely took a backseat in his simple, light grey suit. Frankly, the couple looks more like they're going to an ultra-high fashion prom than attending their own wedding, but that doesn't mean they look any less fierce.

We can't wait to see Cynthia glide down the stairs at the Fernbank Museum to join her husband underneath a dinosaur on next week's season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
