When asked about the dress Kate said she wanted a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind. I’ve lived in his dresses for years, and they just make me feel so comfortable. However, it’s so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that’s going into the dress!”

Cilla Black

Cilla Black and Bobby Wills got married all the way back in 1969. Her dress was made by iconic 1960s designer John Bates who made her a red velvet wedding dress. The dress was designed at a time when you only got one chance to make a lasting first impression,

The church of Scientology is no humble organization, and they insisted on funding the wedding and even showering the new couple with many gifts worth millions of dollars. After all, Tom is like their Prince William. Scientology and Tom Cruise proved too much for Holmes as six years later she would sign the divorce papers needed to escape the cult church and its supreme leader.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

The Royal wedding between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker was by far the most controversial wedding in royal history. Charles was previously married to Princess Diana mother of William and Harry.

The Charles and Diana Union was very unhappy and full of infidelity. Charles for years had been having an affair with Camilla during his marriage with Diana. Many years after Diana’s death Charles and Camilla chose to tie the knot. The 2005 bride wore a gown by Anna Valentine and accessorized it with a headdress by Philip Treacy. Camilla had to avoid wearing a grandiose dress as to avoid offending British society.

Yoko Ono

The relationship between John Lennon and Yoko Ono was for sure one for the books. Yoko was known to be a key player in the atmosphere that leads the Beatles to break up making the term “Yoko Ono” widely used for when a spouse gets in the way of friendships.

However, the two were unarguably very much in love, and in March 1969 the two got married. Yoko wore a white minidress, along with an elegant sun hat, and her trademark sunglasses. The two lived happily until the eventual assassination of John Lennon on December 8th, 1981.

Priscilla Presley

Elvis Presley in his prime was known as the king of Rock & Roll, so you know marrying him would be no walk in the park. The two tied the knot in 1967. Pricilla wore a dress she designed herself, and the two got married in Vegas exactly as they should have!

They later had a daughter named Lisa Marie. Five years after getting married the couple divorced. At the time Presley’s health was beginning to dwindle, and in 1977 Elvis passed away due to heart complications. Long Live the King!

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra, daughter of Deepak Chopra, married no other than Nick Jonas in 2018. The two held a grandiose traditional Indian style week-long wedding. Making a traditional Indian wedding gown is no joke either!

Priyanka’s dress was hand beaded, and hand-embroidered as well! The dress had scalloped sleeves, 135 buttons, a high-neck collar, 2,380,000 mother-of-pearl sequins and took 1,826 hours to make! All topped off with a 75-foot-long tulle veil. Some may say that it sounds like too much, but look at her she’s glowing!

Grace Kelly

The wedding between Meghan Markle may have been the most televised intercontinental royal wedding in the world, but it was not the first. Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer III of Monaco tied the knot years earlier.

Photo by Bettmann/Getty Images

Their wedding was equally as beautiful with a bit less press hype. The Royals had so much fun at the wedding that apparently Kate Middleton took some ideas from it when she married Prince William in 2011. The stress that must come with a royal wedding must be chilling to the core. Anyone who’s anyone will be there, and all the cameras are on the bride and groom. However, royals are groomed from a young age to deal with such pressures.

Chrissy Teigen

Singer Chrissy Teigen and star Hollywood singer John Legend tied the knot back in 2013. The former Sports Illustrated model wore a few dresses, three to be exact! Each dress was made by renowned designer Vera Wang.

For some context on these gowns. One Vera Wang dress can cost anywhere between 8 to 23 thousand dollars. However, if you can afford to look like royalty, why not? Both these stars worked very hard to make their money, so all power to them!

Mia Farrow

At the young age of 21, Mia Farrow decided to unionize with none other than Frank Sinatra. She held a grand wedding and dawned a lovely gown accompanied by a cropped jacket and an elegant bow wrapped around the waist.

Farrow would be Frank Sinatra’s third wedding. The tow held their ceremony in Las Vegas; they would later divorce as she then married Woody Alan.

Bianca Jagger

Bianca Jagger and Mick Jagger tied the knot in 1971. The rolling stone frontman had spent years living the single life and was ready to settle down with the newly found love of his wife. Bianca Jagger wore a slim skirt suit with a plunging neckline.

The dress was accompanied with a veil and a wide-brim hat. At the time of the wedding, she was four months pregnant. They held the ceremony in beautiful Saint-Tropez. Unfortunately, they were not too happy together, and the wedding lasted until only 1978.

Celine Dion

Celine Dion is best known for her soundtrack performance on the album for the movie Titanic. In 1994 the Canadian singer/songwriter married her reported “lifelong crush” Rene Angeli. She wore a silk and regal dress that was decorated with hand-sewn pearls.

The dress was designed by Mirella and Steve Gentile. It actually took more than 1,000 hours to make and even sported a twenty-foot train. The dress cost 25,000 dollars, and hey, anything for the real queen of Canada!

Mariah Carey

The wedding between Mariah Carey and MTV icon Nick Cannon was for sure a tabloid fiasco! Her dress does not really count as a wedding dress, but we decided for the sake of the stars to include it in any who!

Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images

When the couple renewed their vowels in 2012, Carey wore a mermaid themed gown that was colored off white and had a black band around it. The couple would not be a forever matrimony though and divorced a few years later.

Diana, Princess of Wales

The wedding between Diana Princess of Wales and Prince Charles son of the queen in 1981, was probably the most watched TV event of the 1980s. Diana wore a beautiful dress made by David and Elizabeth Emanuel that had a grad 25-foot train that would be the longest dress train in Royal Wedding History!

Photo by Anwar Hussein/Getty Images

The couple had divorced one year before Diana’s tragic death. The couple did not have a very healthy relationship prior to her death as she was not very accepted by the royal family, and was considered a nuisance by the Queen, but the people of England loved her as she did so much for the nation through nonprofit activism before her passing.
