As a young girl, many have grand aspirations of wearing a white wedding gown while walking down the aisle. However, financial limitations often prevent us from fulfilling such dreams. But for wealthy celebrities, there are no such obstacles. Stars like Sofia Vergara and Angelina Jolie spared no expense when it came to their wedding dresses, approaching some of the top fashion designers to create stunning, one-of-a-kind gowns that left audiences in awe. Take a look at some of the most breathtaking celebrity wedding dresses ever worn!
Kim Kardashian opted for a moderately traditional full-length dress for her nuptials with rapper Kanye West in Italy. She appeared absolutely beautiful!
Many people clearly envy her! It’s hard to imagine what it’s like to be married to a man who considers himself the voice of the generation. Ariana Grande may have a larger Instagram following, but that doesn’t diminish Kim’s status as number one!
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt fell in love while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and despite the challenging experiences of dealing with media speculations and raising multiple children, they eventually got married at Chateau Miraval in France after being together for nine years.
The event took place in front of a small and close-knit group of 22 people who were the couple’s nearest and dearest. Angelina’s attire was particularly unique and stunning as it showcased artwork from all of her children, paying tribute to her family in a special way.
The reason behind the Wedding of The Century was justified as almost 2.5 billion people eagerly watched the beloved Prince William of Wales exchange vows with his longtime partner Kate Middleton.
The couple met while studying as youthful scholars in university, and the extensive media attention caused difficulties in their lives. However, in the end, love won and they got married at Westminster Abbey, with the bride looking stunning in a beautiful Alexander McQueen gown.
Chrissy Teigen, a former model from the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, donned three stunning Vera Wang dresses on her wedding day to John Legend, a talented singer and pianist.
Considering that the renowned wedding gown designer’s dresses vary in price from $8,000 to $23,000, it’s without a doubt that Chrissy invested a significant amount of money on her bridal attire. The dress in question is especially exquisite, and we admire the dramatic effect it creates. Chrissy looks like royalty!
Ciara, who is an R&B singer, and her spouse, Russell Wilson, a footballer for Seattle Seahawks, fulfilled every young girl’s dream of a fairytale wedding by choosing to tie the knot at Peckforton Castle, a medieval castle located in Cheshire, UK.
The couple invited Pastor Judah Smith and 100 of their closest family and friends to attend their wedding ceremony.

Miranda, who was previously married to Orlando Bloom, took her second trip down the aisle. The couple opted for a low-key celebration at their Los Angeles home, with only 45 close friends and family in attendance. They have one child together.
Ashley Tisdale is a well-known actress and singer who gained popularity after her appearance in the Disney Channel’s original movie High School Musical. She is also considered a contemporary pinup, as she has been listed multiple times on Maxim’s Hot 100 list of the most attractive women and hottest celebrities.
It was fitting for Ashley to choose Vanessa Hudgens as one of her six bridesmaids for her marriage to musician Christopher French, given their co-starring roles in High School Musical. The couple tied the knot at a privately-owned estate in Santa Barbara.
Amal Alamuddin looked absolutely stunning on her wedding day, which was a must given that she was marrying Hollywood’s most sought-after bachelor who numerous actresses had pursued for many years.
The renowned human rights lawyer originally from Lebanon but residing in London provided insight into George Clooney’s decision to get married. The bride’s appearance resembled that of a fairytale princess in a personalized Oscar De La Renta wedding dress. She later changed into a flowing red Dolce & Gabanna dress for the reception.
What stood out as the most notable aspect of the wedding between the daughter of a billionaire and the son of a large real estate mogul? According to Sylvia Weinstock, who made the cake, it was the incredible cake that was 70 inches tall and consisted of 13 layers, which she described as beautiful and amazing in an interview with People magazine.
The perimeter of every tier was adorned with a variety of flowers such as lisianthus, roses, peonies, Lilies of the Valley, and baby’s breath that showcased shades of white, cream, pink, ivory, and flushed tones.
The marriage between Salma Hayek and the well-known French financier François-Henri Pinault had a high-profile wedding with several A-listers in attendance, including Bono, Penelope Cruz and Woody Harrelson, which is quite expected for someone of Hollywood’s prestige.
The wedding ceremony was held in Venice’s famous opera house, Teatro La Fenice, and it’s estimated that it cost about $3.5 million. However, for the billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, this amount is not a huge sum. The couple now has a child together, named Valentina. The bride, originally from Mexico, is a stunning woman.
The Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen and football quarterback Tom Brady are considered as one of the most influential couples of this century. Despite the feeling of surprise, they have been married for a decade and have a son named Benjamin, and a daughter named Vivian.
Gisele shared a post on Instagram to celebrate their anniversary, in which she expressed her admiration for the educational and personal growth she experiences with her partner. She concluded her message with “Te amo muito!”, a phrase in her native language that signifies her profound affection for her loved one.
Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard tied the knot at Beverly Hills Hotel within a mere three months of getting engaged.
A-list celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union, Odell Beckham Jr., Tiffany Haddish, and Shanina Shaik attended the wedding of one of the world’s most popular supermodels and the New York Giants’ wide receiver. The bride wore a stunning Zuhair Murad gown, which she feels fortunate to have married in, considering its beauty.
Sofia Vergara, the famous Colombian actress, donned a wedding dress created by Zuhair Murad, a popular choice among celebrity brides. Her nuptials to Joe Manganiello, known for his role in Magic Mike, were nothing short of a fairytale, and she looked breathtakingly beautiful in her attire. Sofia is widely recognized for her role in the television sitcom Modern Family.
The wedding was a grand affair held at Breakers Palm Beach resort in Florida, and no effort or money was spared in its preparation, bringing the total cost to an impressive $3 million.
Reality TV personality Whitney Port mentioned that during her wedding, they crafted their own vows and had family members officiate the ceremony. They opted for a less formal approach by foregoing a traditional sit-down dinner in favor of serving guests bite-sized portions of their favorite foods, which included a variety of options such as a bread bar.
We selected our favorite drinks and gave them names based on our personal monikers, and we compiled a playlist for the duration of our two-year engagement to choose all of our music.
Lauren Conrad, who is originally from California, gained popularity through her appearances in the TV shows Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and The Hills. During her wedding, she had an impressive count of ten bridesmaids by her side. The large number of bridesmaids might seem inappropriate according to wedding etiquette.
According to her, it ultimately comes down to personal preference. In her opinion, if the number of guests does not take away from the wedding ceremony, then it’s acceptable. Additionally, if there are many people attending, having them seated during the ceremony is a suitable option, she suggested.
The bride, who is famous for her bold fashion choices, maintained her unique style with a personalized pink and white wedding dress from Dior when she tied the knot with Gavin Rossdale, a British musician. Although they have now separated, her former partner has commented on their wedding attire.
We spent 20 years together and that alone is remarkable and equivalent to a lifetime. I still consider her an extraordinary person. The past 20 years were pleasant and we are blessed with three exceptional children. We experienced plenty of favorable moments.
The statement implies that Victoria and David Beckham’s style seems outdated and belonging to the 1990s. The couple tied the knot at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland in 1998, and their wedding ceremony was carried out by the Bishop of Cork. The ceremony was expensive, amounting to millions of dollars.
Putting humor aside, the couple widely known as a power couple, includes a renowned soccer player ranked among the highly paid athletes in the world and a former singer who is now an iconic fashion figure, once called Posh Spice. It’s been over twenty years since they first got together, and they are still thriving together as a couple with four children.
Serena Williams, a prominent tennis player, tied the knot with Alexis Ohanian, a tech entrepreneur and co-founder of Reddit, in New Orleans, Louisiana. The couple’s little girl was present at the ceremony. Alexis Ohanian shared a message about the event on his Instagram account.
You are simply amazing, excelling not just in sports but also as a wife and mother. I am thrilled to continue writing our love story together, and I didn’t even realize how much I was looking forward to this moment until now.
Kim Kardashian has made it to the list for the second time. While we have a fondness for her unforgettable appearance in a Vera Wang dress at her marriage ceremony with rap icon Kanye West, we cannot disregard her initial wedding to Kris Humphries, which was also remarkable.
Although the marriage was short-lived and lasted only 72 days, Kim spared no expense on the wedding ceremony which cost more than $10 million. Kris’s engagement present to Kim was a 20-carat ring worth $2 million that was transported in an armored truck.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who are known for their hunger for fame and involvement in pop culture, surprised their followers by getting married in secret in Mexico in 2008. However, as anticipated, they had another wedding that was broadcasted on The Hills TV show a few months after in Pasadena.
Heidi’s ex-best friend and fellow cast member, Lauren Conrad, was present at the wedding despite rumors that she might not attend due to her famous disagreement with Spencer. Reports suggest that Lauren had a tantrum during the wedding ceremony.
Prior to being involved with Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian tied the knot with NBA star Lamar Odom after only a month of dating. The wedding was entirely funded by the E! TV network and featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, with a reported cost exceeding $1 million – a trivial amount for someone like a Kardashian.
OK! Magazine purchased the exclusive rights to the wedding photos of the couple for $300,000. During the wedding, Khloe wore an hourglass figure flattering tiered strapless Vera Wang gown with some touches of purple color.
Audrina Patridge, a well-known participant on reality TV, tied the knot with her long-term partner Corey Bonahan in Hawaii soon after having their daughter. The designer of her wedding dress was located in Australia and provided an explanation.
We were fortunate to plan a trip to New York for Bridal Week, which allowed us to bring along the dress for a final check. Luckily, we were able to make some adjustments and put the dress on Audrina. She was extremely pleased and ecstatic.
The much-awaited moment arrived on May 19 when Meghan Markle finally revealed her wedding dress to the world, which everyone had been eagerly anticipating.
Meghan Markle, as the new Duchess of Sussex, opted for designer Clare Wright Keller who holds the esteemed position of the first female artistic director at the Givenchy fashion house. Meghan has taken a liking for the renowned French fashion house as she transitions from being an actress and a public figure to a royal family member.
Due to her experience walking on several runways and being one of Victoria’s Secret attractive Angels, it’s not unexpected that on her wedding day Shanina Shaik was a stunning bride.
Shanina, the model, got married to DJ Ruckus in a secluded beach wedding held in the Bahamas while donning a Bohemian dress. She appeared graceful and stylish in her white dress, which was designed by Ralph & Russo – a couple duo who assisted her in creating her desired dress in a remarkable span of eight months.
In 2010, when Nicole Richie wed Joel Madden, she opted for an uncommon dress style. Despite her reputation for going too far in her younger, more carefree days, Richie appeared to have a clear idea of what she wanted with this dress.
Although some may have different opinions about the dress, the fact remains that the mother of two has established a lucrative fashion line called House of Harlow, demonstrating her knowledge and expertise in the fashion industry.
In November 2017, Kate Upton and Justin Verlander tied the knot in a beautiful Tuscan wedding ceremony, and the actress looked stunning in her white wedding attire as always.
The new wife, who is an actress and Sports Illustrated model, displayed her joy openly while holding hands with her husband. She looked stunning in a traditional elegant Valentino outfit with long sleeves made of lace that went well with her wide smile. Furthermore, to complement her overall appearance, she had on a long white veil and held a bouquet featuring delicate colors of peach, light pink, and ivory.
Shanae Grimes did things a little different when she married her long-term boyfriend, Josh Beech, in 2013. In fact, the 90210 actress opted for an unconventional black Vera Wang dress for her big day, a decision many wouldn’t choose when it came to exchanging their vows.
While tradition stands at wearing a white dress on the day of your wedding, 23-year-old Shanae had her focus in a completely different direction. Meanwhile, five years on and the couple is still going strong!
Eva Longoria appointed famous fashion designer and close pal, Victoria Beckham, when it came to choosing her wedding dress, and she couldn’t have picked a better dress if she tried. The simple white gown fit the Desperate Housewives star perfectly when she married for the third time to José Bastón.
It was also quite the contrast to her choice of wedding dress to her marriage previously to Tony Parker. Eva and José married in 2016 and just recently welcomed their first child together, a son named Santiago Enrique Bastón.
Allison Williams married Ricky Van Veen in 2015 and chose Oscar de la Renta when it came to her wedding dress designer. Best known for her role in the hit HBO series, Girls, Allison and her new husband had invited guests to the Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming and she chose Peter Copping as her dress designer.
She said she had one request for Copping, who she knew would be the best man for the job, stating, “I wanted sleeves because I’m always cold.”
Ashlee Simpson is another bride who chose to stay away from tradition when it came to her wedding dress. In fact, the American singer chose a Houghton Bride crop top, bralette, and lace skirt, when she married Evan Ross in 2014.
Evan Ross is an actor known for his role in The Hunger Games, while also being the son of the very famous singer, Diana Ross. Shortly after the couple celebrated their year anniversary, they welcomed a daughter named Jagger Snow Ross.
They have just recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary, but on July 10, 2015, Nicky Hilton shone in this elegant white, lace gown when she was set to wed James Rothschild.

Meanwhile, Nicky is heir to the Hilton Hotel empire, and James Rothschild is a member of the wealthy Rothschild family.
Arlenis Sosa proved she was every inch a supermodel when she married basketball player Donnie McGrath in 2015. The couple married in the model’s native home of the Dominican Republic, where they invited 150 guests to watch them say their vows in a beach ceremony.
Arlenis shined in this Reem Acra dress, which fit her model figure to a tee. The design consisted of a lace top with a simple and elegant finish. The bride looked sensational as she walked down the aisle with her veil blowing behind her.
Gabrielle Union has graced the silver screen time and time again, 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 chose to wear a custom Dennis Basso for the occasion. Dwayne was already a father of three at the time of marrying Gabrielle, and the new bride chose her step-sons to walk with her down the aisle.
Kaley Cuoco previously got married wearing a pink, princess-like, gown, but unfortunately, that marriage was not to last. The Big Bang Theory actress recently wed for the second time, and this time she wore a custom-made Reem Acra 1920s inspired gown.
The lace detailing and the way it fit perfectly on the actress made this one of the most beautiful wedding gowns. In fact, it took 50 yards of pure silk chiffon and ten seamstresses who hand embroidered the gown, to get this perfect finish.
Jamie Lynn Spears
Jamie Lynn Spears, who rose to fame as Britney Spears’ younger sister, shocked the world when she became pregnant at the age of 16. At this time, her popular television series, Zoey 101, had to be canceled, but Jamie Lynn welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Maddie.

Anna Camp wore a Reem Acra dress with Vince Camuto shoes and Neil Lane jewels. The couple had seven groomsmen and bridesmaid, with one being fellow co-star, Brittany Snow.
She might not be married to Prince William, but Pippa Middleton’s wedding was (nearly) as big as her royal sister Kate’s. The day that she tied the knot with James Matthews, Pippa arrived at St Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire, England, wearing a beautiful dress with a high neck and an ivory gown.
With bespoke lace that added to the fine detail of the gown, Pippa was guaranteed to stand out from the crowd on her big day.

Actress Jessica Biel opened up to Elle magazine about her wedding dress: “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least.”
“[Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink.”
Britney Spears shocked the world when she married her back-up dancer Kevin Federline. But you may not know that she was the one who actually proposed! “Then all of a sudden I said, ‘What if you want to get married?’
And I kind of went from there to asking 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.
Snooki – real name Nicole Polizzi – married her husband in front of 500 guests. Of her big day, she said, “I had the worst jitters. I was nervous, I had to have a little [drink]”

Fans were absolutely delighted when they saw Priyanka Chopra walk down the aisle and tie the knot with Nick Jonas. They ended up having a Christian-Indian fusion wedding in India and the Quantico actress dazzled with some incredible dresses during the weeklong festivities, including this one.
This dress was worn at the Hindu ceremony, with Chopra sporting a lehenga which was designed by Sabyasachi Mukherji and put together by over 100 people. Apparently, the dress took around 3,720 hours to make.
It seems like Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder were always meant to be together, especially since they both had key roles in films/TV shows centered around vampires. Reed starred in the Twilight series while Somerhalder played Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries.
Despite this, they managed to put their gothic lives to one side at their wedding. Reed wore a boho-inspired, backless Claire Pettibone gown. The dress had many stunning features including three-quarter length sleeves, a beautiful neckline, and a long train.
When Kate Moss tied the knot with Jamie Hince back in 2011, many praised her for pretty much harking back to 1920s glamour. It was John Galliano, one of Dior’s finest designers who put together the bias-cut gown. According to him, he drew much inspiration from Zelda Fitzgerald.
With gold embroidery and an illusion neckline, it is not difficult to see why. Not to mention the fact that Moss honored the Jazz Age with a beautiful Juliet cap veil.
It has been a few years now since Celine Dion experienced the tremendous pain of losing her husband, Rene Angelil. The couple had been together for most of the singer’s life.
So it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that they pulled off a huge wedding outside Montreal’s Notre-Dame Basilica back in 1994. Dion sported a stunning 20-foot train, which was designed by Mirella and Steve Gentile. She also wore a beautiful headpiece that contained 2,000 Austrian crystals.
Maybe one of the oldest dresses on this list, it has been over half a century since the late Elvis Presley tied the knot with Priscilla Presley. It’s only fitting that the King took his partner all the way to Las Vegas and got married in the early hours of the morning on May 1, 1967.
They recited their vows at the Aladdin Hotel and there’s an interesting fact about Priscilla’s dress. It turns out that she designed it – a silk-chiffon gown adorned in seed pearls.
Portia de Rossi
Seeing that Ellen DeGeneres ended up marrying another woman in Portia de Rossi over a decade ago, the couple decided that the talk show host would wear a suit while Portia would wear a dress.
During their wedding at their Beverly Hills home, Portia went for a backless dress that came with a pink gown skirt. Zac Posen was the genius behind this dress’s design, which complemented Portia’s pink diamond engagement ring very well and was a huge hit with fans online.
It’s not just Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle who have represented the royal family and impressed the world with their wedding dresses in recent times. Princess Eugenie tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank and did it in style.
Her Royal Highness wore a custom A-line gown that by all accounts, was a perfect thing for a princess to wear. It was duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos who teamed up to design the dress, with a long V-back included.
While Mariah Carey has had a handful of relationships since tying the knot with Tommy Mottola back in 1993, it still makes sense to take a look at the dress she wore.
Vera Wang took inspiration from Princess Diana’s classic wedding dress to design Mariah’s, providing her with a billowing skirt, off-the-shoulder sleeves and a 27-foot-long train. The singer also had a 10-foot veil and a tiara to complete the iconic look. She wore a much simpler dress though when she married Nick Cannon
When Kelly Clarkson tied the knot with Brandon Blackstock in 2013, they decided to go for a low-key wedding. With their famous outdoor ceremony happening at a stunning hotel in Walland, Tennessee, Clarkson decided to have a dress that reflected the toned-down feel of the wedding.
She opted for a Temperley long-sleeve lace wedding dress. With an understated train and a silver headpiece, Kelly managed to look beautiful on her big day without going over the top.
Fans are well aware of the rollercoaster journey that Jay-Z and Beyonce have been through over the last decade or so. When they tied the knot back in 2008, Queen B decided to keep her wedding photos as private as possible.
This is because she wasn’t so enthusiastic about her dress, which her mother designed. However, when the singer ended up renewing her vows with Jay, she wore a very different dress, designed by the one and only Galia Lahav.
Amy Schumer discussed good pal Jennifer Lawrence’s speech at her wedding to chef Chris Fischer, the brother of her personal assistant.
“We just joke around so much, but to hear her say, ‘You’re the matriarch now and it’s a role you’ll be so good at and I know you love fiercely,’” Schumer said in a radio interview with shock jock Howard Stern. “Then she also said, ‘I wish for you patience, which you don’t have.’ So, she also roasted me!”
