These Celebrities Absolutely Nailed Their Wedding Dresses

Our wedding day should be the best day of our lives. Some of us spend years planning every detail, with ideas starting in our teens. Weddings are romantic, symboolic, and mark the beginning of the rest of our lives.


Celebrities are no exception to this. In fact, some might say that they love weddings and marriage even more than the rest of us. Here, we take a look at some of the most extraordinary wedding dresses worn by our favorite celebrities.

Angelina Jolie

After famously meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, a wild romance battling newspaper rumors and the paparazzi, and raising several children, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt eventually married at Chateau Miraval in France. They had been dating for nine years.


The service was held in front of a small group of just 22 of the couple’s close friends and family. Angelina’s dress emphasized illustrations by all of her kids and was custom made to be a homage to her family.

Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard wed at the Beverly Hills Hotel only three brief months after getting engaged. The star-studded gathering is exactly what you would assume for one of the world’s most popular supermodels and the New York Giants’ wide receiver.


Gabrielle Union, Chrissy Teigen, Tiffany Haddish, Odell Beckham Jr., and Shanina Shaik were all there! Chanel picked a Zuhair Murad gown: “I feel very lucky to have gotten married in one of his gorgeous creations,” she said.

Whitney Port

When speaking about her wedding, reality TV star Whitney Port stated, “we wrote our own vows and had members of our family marry us”. They didn’t do a sit-down dinner because they are way more relaxed than that, and wanted something chilled.


The couple arranged so that everyone had little tastes of everything, including all of their favorite things like a bread station. At the bar, they named cocktails after each other’s nicknames. Finally, all the music was chosen by making a playlist from the two years they were engaged. Very cute!

Lauren Conrad

Native Californian Lauren Conrad actually rose to fame on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and its spin-off, The Hills. Conrad had an unbelievable ten bridesmaids by her side on her wedding day. Why such a large number?


Some might say it’s improper wedding etiquette. “It’s really a personal choice,” she stated in an interview. “I think as long as the number doesn’t distract from the nuptials, you’re fine. Also if you have a large group, having them sit during the ceremony works well,” she added.

Amal Clooney

When you’re marrying America’s most desirable single man (who has been the pursuit of women for years), you better look stunning on your wedding day! Don’t worry, that’s exactly what Amal Alamuddin did!


The renowned Lebanon-born, London-based, human rights lawyer made it obvious why George Clooney chose to finally settle down. The bride looked like a Disney princess in a unique gown by Oscar De La Renta. For the reception afterward, she changed into a cascading red Dolce & Gabbana dress.


R&B singer Ciara and her husband, Seattle Seahawks football player Russell Wilson, lived up to every little girl’s fairytale wedding fantasy. They held their matrimonies at the medieval Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.

Dennis Leupold

The couple flew in more than 100 of their dearest family members and friends, as well as Pastor Judah Smith to give the ceremony. The bride wore a beautiful custom gown with impressive lace accents by Roberto Cavalli Couture. Ciara’s son, Future Zahir, served as the ring bearer for the happy couple.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara looked completely remarkable in a bridal gown by Zuhair Murad. Murad has been a top pick for many of the celebrity brides on this list, as we will find out. The Colombian-born actress, who captured our hearts on the sitcom Modern Family, had a fairytale wedding to Magic Mike stud Joe Manganiello.


No cost was spared for their big day, which caused the total value of the wedding to rise to $3 million. The service was held at Breakers Palm Beach resort in Florida.

Margot Robbie

In order to formally put an end to the rumors about her personal life, Robbie posted a photo on Instagram with her new husband and her amazing wedding ring! However, the pictures from the wedding that leaked to the press showed Robbie walking down the aisle with a pageboy.


Although it was just the upper torso of her dress that was seen, it revealed a beautiful cream lace off-the-shoulder gown. It is rumored that it was originally her mother’s dress and had been altered for Margot’s wedding.

Nicky Hilton

They have recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary, but in 2015, Nicky Hilton looked amazing in this classic white, lace gown. The ceremony was amazing when she was getting ready to wed James Rothschild. The two of them got married at The Orangery in Kensington Palace Gardens, London, England.


Nicky wore this Valentino Haute Couture gown shown, which set the Hilton lady back a whopping $77,000. You might recognize the Hilton name – Nicky is heir to the Hilton Hotel empire. James Rothschild is a member of the wealthy Rothschild family – so this couple has it set!

Renee Zellweger

Some of the most memorable bride gowns that Carolina Herrera has designed have included those of Idina Menzel and Jessica Simpson. We might forget that another actress who received the luxury treatment from Herrera was Renee Zellweger.

The star of Bridget Jones’ Diary wore her striking dress in 2005, with many of the guests admiring the minimalist fashion of her dress. The photos of her beach wedding with Kenny Chesney were beautiful, but the couple had an annulment only four months later.

Shenae Grimes

Shanae Grimes did things slightly differently when she finally married her long-term boyfriend, Josh Beech, in 2013. The 90210 actress chose an alternative black Vera Wang dress for her big day, a judgment many wouldn’t make when it comes to exchanging vows on a wedding day!


While culture stands at wearing a white dress on your wedding day, 23-year-old Shanae had her mind in a completely contrary direction. Still, five years later and the couple is still going great!

Miranda Kerr

The supermodel for Victoria’s Secret, Miranda Kerr, found her dream man in Snapchat founder and CEO, Evan Spiegel. This bride wore a unique gown by famous French design house Dior Haute Couture.


It was the second time that Miranda got married, who was previously married to Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom. The couple had a modest affair at their home in Los Angeles, California, in front of around 45 of their dearest friends and family. Together, they have one child.

Ashley Tisdale

Ashley Tisdale is a singer and actress whose big break came when she appeared in High School Musical. Tisdale is also a modern-day model, even ranking on the Maxim ‘Hot 100 list of Sexiest Women And Hottest Celebrities’ on several occasions.


It’s only fitting that her wedding to musician Christopher French, had her High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens as one of her six bridesmaids! The two of them had the ceremony at a private home in Santa Barbara.

Kim Kardashian (again)

For her Italian ceremony to rapper Kanye West, Kim Kardashian decided to wear a relatively conservative floor-length gown. She looked amazing! The whole of Hollywood was there to see this new power couple tie the knot.


Let’s hope the marriage lasts. They have three kids together and now work hard to push important issues like prison reform. Try to keep up with these two!

Gisele Bundchen

This Brazilian supermodel and football quarterback, Tom Brady, are one of America’s biggest power couples. It’s hard to accept the charismatic duo has already been married for more than a decade. Together, they have a daughter, Vivian, and a son, Benjamin.


Lately, Gisele marked their anniversary on Instagram, posting: “I love learning and growing with you. Happy anniversary love of my life! Te amo muito!” The last part of her message means “I love you very much” in Portuguese.

Victoria Beckham

Can you believe that this British power couple has been married for 20 years? The two of them married back in 1998 Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland. The Bishop of Cork handled the ceremony, which cost millions of pounds.


David and Victoria hosted a bunch of guests to the wedding that consisted of one of the most highly paid soccer players in the world, and the fashion icon previously known as ‘Posh Spice’. ‘Posh and Becks’ are still going strong together more than two decades later. They share four children together.

Gwen Stefani

The bride, who’s known for her bold sense of style, kept her unmistakable tone with a characteristic pink and white wedding gown by Dior. The wedding was to British rocker Gavin Rossdale, but it didn’t last.


The pair have since split, but her ex-husband says: “we had 20 years together and that in itself is pretty incredible. It’s a lifetime. I still think she’s incredible. It was a lovely 20 years and we have three amazing children. There were a lot of positives.” We wish them well!

Heidi Montag

Reality stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag startled fans when they eloped in Mexico in 2008. As assumed for these two fame-hungry pop culture characters, they had a second and televised wedding (which was shown on The Hills) in Pasadena a few months later.


Lauren Conrad, Heidi’s co-star and former best friend, went to the wedding even though there was speculation that she wouldn’t show up. According to the show, she didn’t get along with Spencer. Lauren allegedly “had a fit” at her friend’s wedding, which isn’t very nice but probably did well for ratings.

Jessica Biel

Actress Jessica Biel spoke to Elle magazine about her wedding dress on her special day with Justin Timberlake: “I wanted the gown to be very romantic and tender and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least.”


“[Valli] had imagined that same cloth in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a past collection, and I asked him if he could design that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink.”

Christina Aguilera

The award-winning superstar, Christina Aguilera, married her manager Jordan Bratman when she was 24. However, things didn’t last long for the couple after their massive $3 million Santa Barbara wedding. In an interview about the divorce with People Magazine, Christina stated:


“I’ve grown as a woman and he’s grown as a person. We were both seeking different things. We just weren’t right for one another. I couldn’t face living another five years together and feeling that I wasted that time being unhappy.”


Snooki – whose real name is Nicole Polizzi – married her husband in front of 500 wide-eyed guests. Talking about her big day, she told reporters, “I had the worst anxiety. I was nervous, I had to have a little shot of vodka. Like, I was saying, ‘where’s my vodka? I need my nerves to calm down.’”


Despite the nerves, she admits, “it was honestly the best day of my life. I want to renew my vows next year just so I can have a celebration again and relive that moment because it was so marvelous.”

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria chose her famous fashion designer and close friend, Victoria Beckham, to design her wedding dress. We think she couldn’t have selected a nicer dress if she tried. The modest white gown fit the Desperate Housewives actress perfectly when she married her third husband, José Bastón.


It was also a bit of a variation from her choice of wedding dress to her ceremony beforehand to Tony Parker. Eva and José married in 2016 and just recently greeted their first child together, a boy called Santiago Enrique Bastón.

Allison Williams

Allison Williams wedded Ricky Van Veen in 2015, choosing Oscar de la Renta as her wedding dress designer. She is best known for her performance in the hit HBO series, Girls. Allison and her new husband invited visitors to the Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming.


She said she had one demand for the dress when it was designed. She knew he would be the best man for the job, declaring, “I wanted sleeves because I’m always cold.” We think she looks amazing.

Ashlee Simpson

Ashlee Simpson is a different bride who wanted to stay away from ritual when it came to her wedding gown. In fact, the American singer picked a Houghton Bride crop top, bralette, and lace skirt, when she wedded Evan Ross in 2014.


Ross is an actor remembered for his role in The Hunger Games, while also being the son of singer Diana Ross. Soon after the couple celebrated their one year anniversary, they were joined by a daughter named Jagger Snow Ross.

Arlenis Sosa

Arlenis Sosa showed us she was every bit a supermodel when she married basketball player Donnie McGrath four years ago. The couple married in the model’s original home of the Dominican Republic, where they welcomed 150 guests to watch them say their vows in a beach ceremony.


Arlenis glistened in this Reem Acra dress, which fit her model body to perfection. The design was made up of a lace top with a simple and beautiful finish. The bride looked breathtaking as she walked down the aisle with her veil flowing behind her.

Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union has been on the silver screen for a long time, looking effortlessly beautiful every time. Once again, the famous actress was a vision when she married Dwayne Wade in 2014.


This was the second marriage for the Bad Boys II star, and she wanted to wear a custom Dennis Basso for the event. Dwayne was already a father of three at the time of wedding Gabrielle, and the new bride chose to walk down the aisle with her step-sons.

Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears rose to fame as Britney Spears’ younger sister. She shocked the world when she fell pregnant at the young age of just 16. Quickly, her popular television series, Zoey 101, was canceled. Regardless, Jamie Lynn welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Maddie.


In 2014, Jamie showed us she was all grown up when she wedded Jamie Watson in New Orleans. The one-time child star wore Liancarlo for her wedding day and had Maddie as her bridesmaid. Cute!

Jamie Chung

When Jamie Chung wed Bryan Greenberg in 2015, the star actually wore two dresses. The one-time reality TV star wore a Jonathan Simkhair dress for pre-vow photos, and then Monique Lhuillier for the ceremony. The pair swapped vows on Halloween in front of their friends and family at El Capitan Canyon in Santa Barbara, California.


In fact, the event was a three-day wedding and began with a welcome dinner on the Friday night in the forest. Guests were urged to wear costumes for the meal, which sounds like fun!

Anna Camp

When Anna Camp and Skylar Astin married in 2016, it put Pitch Perfect fans into a craze. The co-stars started dating in 2013 before formally getting married three years later. They invited their guests to see them exchange vows at an outdoor service on the central California coast.


Camp wore a Reem Acra gown with Vince Camuto shoes and Neil Lane gems. The couple had seven groomsmen and bridesmaids, one being their fellow co-star, Brittany Snow.

Meghan Markle

It was the moment the whole world was waiting for. On May 19, everyone finally got their look at the wedding dress Meghan Markle decided to wear to marry Prince Harry.


The new Duchess of Sussex chose designer Clare Wright Keller, who is the first woman director at the house of Givenchy. The legendary French house seems to be a preference for the new Duchess, who is determined to go from an actress and public figure to a new member of the Royal family.

Salma Hayek

When Salma Hayek wedded the renowned French banker François-Henri Pinault, the ceremony was just as star-studded as you’d imagine for Hollywood. Bono, Penelope Cruz, and Woody Harrelson were all there cheering her on.


The wedding cost a huge $3.5 million – which is just small change if you’re Francois-Henri Pinault – he is a billionaire, after all! The event was held in Venice’s famous opera house, the Teatro La Fenice.

Shanina Shaik

She has walked along a lot of runways and is one of the amazing Angels from Victoria’s Secret. It is no shock that Shanina Shaik looked like the most gorgeous bride on her own wedding day.


The model newly married DJ Ruckus in a secluded beach service in the Bahamas, sporting a bohemian style dress. Looking classy and chic in white on her big day, Shanina had hired the husband-and-wife team at Ralph & Russo to help design her dream dress in only eight months.

Kate Upton

Kate Upton married her beau, Justin Verlander, in a romantic Tuscan wedding in November 2017. As ever, the actress and model was a sight in white on her big day.


The Sports Illustrated model couldn’t hide her joy as she marched hand-in-hand with her new husband, and her smile went flawlessly with her impressive dress. Kate chose a more traditional, long-sleeved lace Valentino gown with a long white veil. She held a bouquet of light pink, peach, and ivory flowers.

Nicole Richie

When the iconic Nicole Richie married Joel Madden in 2010, she decided to go for this unusual dress. While she has been expected to have gone somewhat over the top in her youthful, wilder days, Richie appeared to have had her own vision when choosing this dress.


Regardless of people’s opinions on this dress, this mother-of-two has since created her own thriving fashion line, House of Harlow, so has demonstrated she knows what she’s doing when it comes to style.

Khloe Kardashian

Way before Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian was married to NBA player Lamar Odom – only one month after they met! Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the E! TV network covered the costs of the wedding, which was rumored to have cost more than $1 million – small change for a member of the Kardashians!


The two made $300,000 by offering exclusive rights to their wedding photos to OK! Magazine. Khloe wore a tiered strapless Vera Wang dress with purple tints that displayed off her nice figure.

Audrina Patridge

Reality star Audrina Patridge wedded her longtime boyfriend Corey Bonahan in Hawaii, just a few months after welcoming their daughter to the world.


Her wedding gown designer was living in Australia and explained, “It was just by luck that we were going to New York for Bridal Week that we were able to take the dress with us. We popped it on her and did a few changes. Audrina adored it. She was just delighted and over the moon.”

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco before got married in a pink, princess-like, gown, but sadly that marriage ended in divorce. The Big Bang Theory actress recently wed for a second time, and this time she wore a bespoke Reem Acra 1920s-inspired gown (in white!).


The detailing in the lace and the way it fit flawlessly on the actress made this one of the most wonderful wedding dresses we’ve seen. In fact, it took 50 yards of pure silk and ten designers who hand sewed the gown to get this entire look.

Kate Middleton

It was the Wedding of the Decade, and for a very good reason. Almost 2.5 billion people turned to their tellies to watch the heir to the British throne, Prince William of Wales, marry his longtime partner, Kate Middleton.


The two held the ceremony at Westminster Abbey with the bride in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress. The hall was full of all your favorite celebrities and broadcast all around the world.

Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer talked about her good pal’s, Jennifer Lawrence, speech at her wedding to Chris Fischer, a chef. Her new husband is also the brother of her personal assistant.


This funny woman wore a modest white dress and looked absolutely charming as she walked down the aisle. Do you think the marriage will last? We hope so!

Princess Eugenie

This Royal married Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle in St. George’s Chapel. The white dress was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

The wedding took place in October 2018 and marked just one of the Royal Weddings that took place that year. Princess Eugenie wore a gown with a low back – a very specific request since she had surgery to correct scoliosis when she was 12.

Gwyneth Paltrow

The actress and entrepreneur wore a laced Valentino dress cut with a cathedral-length veil and custom bodice. The union took place at the couple’s Hamptons mansion and hosted plenty of celebrity guests such as friends Cameron Diaz and Stella McCartney.

Getty Images

This was Paltrow’s second marriage after her famous ‘conscious uncoupling’ to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

Solange Knowles

Solange Knowles shunned many of the regular wedding elements to marry her long-term love, Alan Ferguson. The bride entered the ceremony, which took place in New Orleans, on a bike!

Getty Images

She wore a Stéphane Rolland jumpsuit before switching into an Humberto Leon for Kenzo gown. The party went from the church in the style of a brass band parade, complete with dancing, sparklers, and live music.

Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth married her love Michael Polish in 2013, in a ceremony accompanied by approximately 50 close friends and family in Philipsburg, Montana.

Getty Images

She arrived at the service in a stagecoach pulled by two horses and wore a strapless, full-skirted Oscar de la Renta gown finished with an eight-foot-long, 16-foot-wide train and coupled with a full-length veil. For the party, the actress transformed into a floral embellished dress with an illusion neckline and cap sleeves, also by De la Renta.

Margherita Missoni

Margherita Missoni wedded Eugenio Amos way back in 2012, in the church of Santa Maria Annunciata in her hometown, Brunello. The socialite called on her friend, Giambattista Valli, to guide on the long-sleeved gown. It was made using Missoni silk (of course!) and organza and decorated with flower applications.


“The dress was made by the women who saw me growing up, following my precise directions and with Giamba’s ‘couture counseling’,” she explained in an interview.

Anne Hathaway

The Les Mis and The Dark Knight Rises star married Adam Shulman in 2012, in an outside sunset service in Big Sur, California. Hathaway wore a bespoke Valentino bridal dress, which emphasized intricate lace and embroidery.


The gown was matched with a climactic full-length veil and vintage-inspired headpiece. Guests partied with the newly-wedded couple until the early hours of the morning – and the couple is still going strong today.

Nancy Shevell

In October 2011, Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell got married at London’s Old Marylebone Town Hall. The beautiful bride wore a classic dress designed by her new daughter-in-law, Stella.

LEON NEAL/AFP/Getty Images

Overall, the entire day was full of moving tributes, with Paul having married first wife Linda – who died in 1998 – at the same venue. Also, the date would have been the 71st birthday of John Lennon – Paul’s fellow Beatle.

Kate Moss

Kate Moss wedded Jamie Hince in a John Galliano gown at St Peter’s church in Southrop way back in 2011. Moss wore a custom-made gown by John Galliano, which was exhibited in the Victoria & Albert museum in 2014 as part of its exhibition of wedding dresses.


Speaking of the dress, Kate after has said she had wanted: “a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind. I’ve lived in his dresses for years, and they just make me feel so comfortable. But it’s so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that’s going into the dress!”

Keira Knighley

Keira Knightley married Klaxons musician James Righton in the South of France. The Love, Actually star wore a Chanel couture spring/summer 2006 pale grey tulle, bustier, dress that reached the knee. Knightley matched her dress with a white tweed jacket created by Karl Lagerfeld.


The modest ceremony – which was held in front of just 11 guests! It happened at a town hall in Mazan, 12 miles from Marseille in France. The party was then hosted at a home owned by Knightley’s mother, playwright Sharman MacDonald, in a tent constructed in the garden.

Cilla Black

Iconic 1960s designer John Bates designed this red velvet wedding dress that Cilla Black wore to marry Bobby Willis, way back in 1969. Always eager to make an impression, it is a stark difference to the conventional white worn by brides on their big day.

Getty Images

The choice of red wasn’t a gimmick: the two were married for more than 30 years, way up until his death in 1999. Cilla died 16 years later, in 2015, after falling and hitting her head.

Pippa Middleton

She may not be married to Prince William, but Pippa Middleton’s union was (almost) as grand as her royal sister Kate’s. The day she finally settled down with James Matthews, Pippa arrived at St Mark’s Church, England, donning a gorgeous dress with a high neck and an ivory gown.

Pippa Middleton

With unique lace that brought class to the subtle detail of the gown, Pippa was assured to stand out from the guests on her big day.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears astounded the nation when she quickly married her back-up dancer, Kevin Federline. But did you know that she was actually the one who proposed! In an interview, she recalled: “Then all of a sudden I said, ‘What if you want to get married?’


And I kind of went from there to ask him if he would marry me. I asked him… He said no because he thought it wasn’t the right way to do it.” A week later, Kevin bought Britney a ring and the rest is well documented!

Zara Philips

Zara Phillips married her husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, at Canongate Kirk church in 2011. Located in Edinburgh, she was wearing an ivory silk satin gown by a favorite of the royals, Stewart Parvin, and a tiara given to her by her mother, Princess Anne.

Princess Anne is, of course, the daughter of Queen Elizabeth, meaning this Royal Wedding saw all the famous faces we know and love today. The couple share two children.

Lara Stone

In 2010, Lara Stone married British comedian David Walliams at Claridge’s. She was wearing a dress designed by her friend Riccardo Tisci. But don’t worry, this wasn’t it!


After the ceremony, the pair changed into different outfits, and here Stone is seen wearing a second Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy dress. Sadly, the couple divorced soon after.

Portia de Rossi

For her wedding to Ellen DeGeneres in 2008, Portia de Rossi decided to wear a pale pink tulle gown by Zac Posen. Her new bride, Ellen, chose a more subtle white suit.


These two have been married for 11 years and remain strong examples of gay rights. After this, a slew of same-sex marriages came and went proving that the new lifestyle was here to stay.

Katie Holmes

Alas, it was never meant to last. Holmes’ wedding to action star Tom Cruise was all that everyone was talking about when they wedded in 2006. It was a few months after the birth of their daughter, Suri.


Katie Holmes wore a gown by Giorgio Armani that was off-the-shoulder for the Italy ceremony. Sadly, they divorced in 2012 and the world truly never recovered. Still, we have the photos we can use to marvel at the 2000s nostalgia.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

This marriage was a little different from the other Royal Weddings we’ve seen so far. Camilla Parker Bowles finally married her beau, the Prince of Wales, in April 2005.


The bride (and future Queen?) wore a gown by Anna Valentine, accessorized with a headdress by Philip Treacy with L.K. Bennett providing the shoes. Controversially, these two were both previously married.

Yoko Ono

In March 1969, Yoko Ono wore a white minidress for her wedding to John Lennon. Ono added a sun hat and her classic oversized sunglasses. Zsa Zsa Gabor rudely said the couple looked like “two people going to hold up a bank”.


Still, the couple were never ones to conform, and the former Beatle married in the way that suited him best. They lived happily until his death.

Priscilla Presley

In 1967, Priscilla Beaulieu wore a dress she designed herself when she married Elvis Presley. The two wedded in Las Vegas, because why not? Here is one of the most famous photos from the event.


Their daughter, Lisa Marie, was born the following year in, but sadly they divorced in 1973 – only five years later. Elvis Presley died in 1977 from heart failure.

Priyanka Chopra

This is just one of the three dresses Priyanka Chopra wore to her wedding to Nick Jonas.

The gown was hand-beaded and hand-embroidered – which took 1,826 hours to make. It also featured scalloped sleeves, 135 buttons, a high-neck collar, and 2,380,000 mother-of-pearl sequins. Of course, it was topped off with a 75-foot-long tulle veil.

Grace Kelly

Before Meghan Markle, there was another Hollywood actress that would join a royal family. During her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, Kelly wore a dress designed by Helen Rose.

Getty Images

It was so influential that Kate Middleton reportedly took ideas from it when she married Prince William in 2011. It is considered one of the most elegant dresses of all time.

Chrissy Teigen

For her wedding to the singer and piano player John Legend, the former Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen wore a few dresses. She didn’t wear one, not two, but an impressive total of three different Vera Wang gowns.


When you consider the costs of the famous wedding dress designer’s gowns, they range from $8K to $23K. This means that Chrissy spent more than most of us on her wedding looks. We particularly love the intensity of this dress. She looks like royalty!

Mia Farrow

Despite being only 21 at the time, actress Mia Farrow shone brightly at her wedding to Frank Sinatra. Her dress was partnered with a matching cropped jacket with a subtle bow wrapped around the waist. When they married, Farrow became Frank Sinatra’s third wife at their ceremony in Las Vegas.

Getty Images

The marriage was not to last, and they divorced before she married Woody Allen.

Bianca Jagger

Bianca Jagger married her Rolling Stone in 1971, wearing a slim skirt suit not forgetting a plunging neckline. When marrying her Mick, the dress had a veiled, wide-brim hat. She was four months pregnant at the time.

Getty Images

The ceremony was held in Saint-Tropez and the two looked happy in love as they started their new life together. Sadly, they divorced in 1978 after it was revealed that Mick was unfaithful with Jerry Hall.

Celine Dion

Titanic singer Celine Dion wore one of the most elegant wedding dresses of all time. In 1994, she married her lifelong crush Rene Angeli. The silk and regal dress was decorated with hand-sewn pearls.


The wedding gown was created by Mirella and Steve Gentile and people spent more than 1, 000 hours to make it. The wedding dress included a twenty-foot train and cost more than $25,000.

Mariah Carey

Ok, so this isn’t technically a wedding dress, but we couldn’t make a list like this without including Mariah Carey! In 2012, she renewed her vows with Nick Cannon. Carey wore a gown in the style of a mermaid and was just off the color white – even including a black band.

Getty Images

Sadly, the couple divorced a few years later. They share a set of twins together.

Diana, Princess of Wales

Everyone loves a Royal Wedding! When Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, 750 million tuned in to watch on TV. Diana wore a dress from David and Elizabeth Emanuel.

The 25-foot train at the bottom of her dress is still the longest train in Royal Wedding history. The couple had two children before divorcing in 1996 – one year before her death.
