Kevin Costner's new bride Christine Baumgartner faces a hefty dry cleaning bill - her wedding gown has mud splattered all over it.

The designer's MONIQUE LHUILLIER dress was snagged minutes after Baumgartner put it on to walk down the makeshift aisle at Costner's Aspen, Colorado, estate last month (SEP04).

But she admits the splattered mud might be more of a problem, not that she plans to return the gown at all.

She explains, "It's not ruined. I love it with the mud on it. It's not cleaned yet. It's good mud."
