The Best Celebrity Wedding Dresses Ever

When it comes to beautiful wedding dresses, it's hard to top the gown Grace Kelly wore when she married Monaco's Prince Rainier III on April 19, 1956. The high-neck, long sleeve dress was brought to life by MGM costume designer Helen Rose. The bodice was made from delicate Brussels lace and embellished with thousands of hand-sewn pearls, while the silk taffeta skirt boasted a long, elegant train. A circular veil completed what is considered one of the best celebrity wedding dresses ever, which continues to inspire countless brides to this day.

Audrey Hepburn's Wedding Dress

While the Givenchy wedding dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in Funny Face continues to be one of the most famous celebrity wedding dresses of all time, the ensemble that she wore to her first wedding to Mel Ferrer in 1954 packed just as much vintage glamor. The tea-length dress was designed by Pierre Balmain and featured a high neck and puffy sleeves, which she wore with elbow-length white gloves and a white rosebud crown in her hair.

Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress

We still haven't gotten over seeing Meghan Markle arrive at Saint George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, wearing an immaculately white, thoughtfully minimal custom dress by Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy. Notable for its strategic simplicity, the design showcased the bride's natural beauty with a graceful bateau neckline. And don't even get us started on her slinky second wedding dress by Stella McCartney, which lives on as one of our favorite celebrity reception dresses ever.

Gabrielle Union's Wedding Dress

Actress Gabrielle Union chose a timeless wedding dress shape for her 2014 wedding to NBA star Dwyane Wade. Union worked with designer Dennis Basso to create her custom strapless sweetheart ball gown to fit the wedding's fairytale theme. The groom matched in a monochrome look too, as he opted for a white suit with a white bow tie to complement his wife's outfit.

Sofia Richie's Wedding Dress

It was the wedding that broke the internet. In April 2023, Sofia Richie married music executive Elliot Grainge in a lavish destination wedding that catapulted "quiet luxury" into the zeitgeist. The model and beauty entrepreneur wore three custom Chanel wedding dresses throughout the wedding weekend and was highly involved in the design process for each. The bride opted for a fitted high-neck gown for the ceremony, complete with scalloped edges and intricate lace. She changed into a structured mini dress for the reception, telling Vogue, "I can dance, [and] I can move. I love it! It's traditional Chanel. I will be eating pizza and fries in this dress. Pray for this dress."

    The Trendiest Celebrity Wedding Dresses Ever

    Ariana Grande's Wedding Dress

    Ariana Grande's wedding dress

    Of all the trendy celebrity wedding dresses we've seen, Ariana Grande's remains one of our favorites. The Grammy Award-winner tapped design maven Vera Wang for her gown—in fact, Vogue reported that the two began scheming up wedding dress ideas at one Met Gala party years before Grande was even planning a wedding. She ultimately channeled Audrey Hepburn for her 2021 nuptials to Dalton Gomez, opting for a custom silk empire-waist column gown, which had a sculpted neckline, an exposed bra-strap closure, and a plunging back. For a trendy finish, the dress was accented with a statement shoulder-length hand-pleated bubble veil that had a silk bow on the top. Wang took to Instagram to reflect on the design experience, saying Grande was "a truly magical muse."

    Hailey Bieber's Wedding Dress

    Hailey Bieber's wedding dress

    Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's 2019 wedding was one of the most anticipated of the year. Many speculated about what the bride would wear, especially because the couple officially got married at a courthouse a year earlier. Baldwin turned to Virgil Abloh of the brand Off-White to design her custom gown: a form-fitted long sleeve off-the-shoulder lace dress. She added a trailing veil with "TILL DEATH DO US PART" stitched along the bottom. After the ceremony, the new Mrs. Bieber traded her wedding dress for a second ceremony look from Ralph & Russo. The sultry style had a high neckline that was reminiscent of Meghan Markle's reception look. For an edgy touch, she added a leather jacket with "Wifey" scrawled on the back. To this day, Hailey Bieber's wedding dress remains one of the highest-searched wedding dresses, according to Google Analytics.

    Samantha Hanratty's Wedding Dress

    The Knot had the exclusive first look inside Yellowjackets actress Samantha Hanratty's wedding to Christian DeAnda. The November 2023 nuptials took place at a vineyard in San Luis Obispo County, and our former cover star stunned in a strapless ball gown by Chic Nostalgia, which had a plunging V-neckline and a wispy tulle skirt covered in Swiss dots and 3D flowers.

    "I had planned to get my wedding dress in the Los Angeles area, but while I was visiting my mom one weekend, we decided to stop into Epiphany Boutique in San Luis Obispo to try on a few dresses and find a style I liked," the bride told us. "When I put on the first dress, we all loved it. But when I put on the second dress, everyone gasped. It was the dress!"

    Taylor Hill's Wedding Dress

    Model Taylor Hill wore one of our favorite celebrity wedding dresses in recent years. The former Victoria's Secret Angel wed businessman Daniel Fryer at Colorado's Devil's Thumb Ranch on June 10, 2023. With the great American West as their backdrop, the bride opted for a custom Etro wedding dress that had an off-the-shoulder neckline and an airy tiered skirt. "This is [actually] the first wedding dress that Etro has ever made!" Hill told Vogue. "When they sent me the sketches of it, I was like, 'It's like you're in my head. My favorite part of the dress is probably the top and the sleeves. It gives it the element of romance that I was looking for."

    Nicola Peltz's Wedding Dress

    What do you wear when you marry the son of Posh Spice? Valentino, of course. Model Nicola Peltz tapped the Italian fashion house to design the minimal and chic dress she wore to wed Brooklyn Beckham, son of David and Victoria. The final result—a clean column dress with a square neckline, thick straps, and an attached train—was accessorized with lace gloves, a lavish veil, and chunky Versace platform heels.

    Sophia Bush's Wedding Dress

    Sophia Bush was simply a vision in her stunning botanical-inspired wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier. The actress selected a whimsical off-the-shoulder ball gown with balloon sleeves and a pink floral print for her Tulsa, Oklahoma wedding to entrepreneur Grant Hughes in July 2022. The night before the wedding, she also donned an "elevated cowboy" dress by Roksanda, with an attached cape, chunky belt and Western-inspired hat.

    Kourtney Kardashian's Wedding Dress

    Kourtney Kardashian's wedding dress

    Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker had quite a few international wedding celebrations, including a late-night Vegas vow swap and a courthouse ceremony. While the A-list bride and groom wore memorable looks for all, nothing compares to Kardashian's wedding dress worn in Portofino, Italy. Given that the multi-day wedding weekend was hosted by Dolce & Gabbana, the Italian fashion brand also designed her now-famous wedding dress: a one-of-a-kind silk lace and satin mini frock. The standout detail, though, was her veil. The brand's Instagram page revealed that the headpiece, which featured a large depiction of the Virgin Mary and the words "family loyalty respect," was inspired by one of Barker's tattoos. She completed the look with white gloves and lace pumps.

    Paris Hilton's Wedding Dress

    Paris Hilton's wedding dress

    For her November 2021 wedding to Carter Reum, Paris Hilton wore an elegant wedding dress similar to styles worn by her mom, Kathy, and sister, Nikki—and all three women were undoubtedly inspired by Grace Kelly's beautiful wedding dress. Paris opted for a timeless long sleeve lace creation by Oscar de la Renta, though it wasn't her only look of the party. In fact, it was just one of 11! Following the ceremony, she changed into an off-the-shoulder tulle ball gown by Galia Lahav. "I envisioned a princess," Galia Lahav head designer told The Knot. "I knew the effect of the fabric would be flawless on the dance floor. I added a slit that was hardly noticeable so Paris would be able to move freely in the dress."

    Britney Spears' Wedding Dress

    Britney Spears' wedding dress

    The Princess of Pop certainly deserved an unforgettable celebrity wedding dress. Donatella Versace designed Britney Spears' wedding look for her intimate fairytale-themed nuptials to dancer Sam Asghari, which took place at their home in Los Angeles. The bride walked down the aisle in a custom off-the-shoulder cap sleeve dress with a deep skirt slit, which she accessorized with a white veil and matching choker necklace. There was no shortage of bling either, as she accessorized with over 62 carats of Stephanie Gottlieb diamonds.

    Lily Collins' Wedding Dress

    Yet another celebrity wedding dress inspired by Grace Kelly's, Lily Collins' bridal look was certainly one to remember. The actress donned a Victorian-era-inspired long-sleeve lace gown by Ralph Lauren. The unique look also included a matching lace cape with a hood, which complemented the ethereal Colorado venue. "What started as a fairytale, is now my forever reality," she shared in one post. "I'll never be able to properly describe how otherworldly this past weekend was, but magical is a pretty good place to start…"

    Priyanka Chopra's Wedding Dress

    Priyanka Chopra's jaw-dropping wedding wardrobe won't be forgotten anytime soon. The Quantico actress married singer Nick Jonas in an opulent, multiday, Christian-Indian fusion celebration in India. Chopra donned several gorgeous outfits for their week of traditional wedding festivities, including two bespoke gowns—one for each ceremony. For the Christian service, the bride wore a long-sleeve fitted A-line wedding dress by Ralph Lauren, which was studded with more than two million sequins and finished with a showstopping 75-foot veil. For their Hindu ceremony, Chopra looked radiant in a custom red lehenga by designer Sabyasachi Mukherji, who spent more than 3,720 hours creating it with a team of 100-plus people.

    Brittany Matthews' Wedding Dress

    Given her fabulous sideline style at husband Patrick Mahomes' NFL games, it was inevitable that Brittany Matthews' wedding look would be just as extraordinary. She tapped Versace to design a sexy cutout dress for her March 2022 wedding in Maui, Hawaii. The unique look boasted angular cutouts with silver lining on the bodice, which led into a fitted skirt with an attached train. The couple's daughter, Sterling, matched mom in a sweet white dress with an oversized bow on the back.

    Lily Allen's Wedding Dress

    It was a simple affair for singer Lily Allen and actor David Harbour—the two secretly wed at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas back in September 2020. (And yes, an Elvis impersonator did indeed preside over their vows.) The bride kept it low-key in a structured cream mini dress by Christian Dior, with a flattering bateau neckline and black velvet buttons. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds celebrated with a West Coast favorite: In-N-Out Burger.

    Son Ye-jin's Wedding Dress

    Son Ye-jin's Wedding Dress

    Here's one celebrity wedding dress we can't stop swooning over. When South Korean actress Son Ye-jin married fellow actor Hyun Bin in Seoul, South Korea in March 2022, she chose Vera Wang's "Camilla" dress, originally from the label's Spring 2020 bridal collection. The ethereal design had an asymmetrical hand draped French tulle bodice that led into a macramé lace skirt, veiled with a dramatic tulle overlay. For her second look, she changed into a sage green macramé lace A-line gown with a dramatic nude tulle overlay, a high neck and delicate cap sleeve accents. She completed the ensemble by weaving green and purple flowers into her hair.

    Serena Williams' Wedding Dress

    Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian might be one of the luckiest grooms alive.

    When the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and Kanye West announced their engagement, tons of celebrity wedding dress designers vied for the opportunity to design Kim K's wedding dress. But when it finally came time to walk down the aisle on May 24, 2014, she stunned in one of the most memorable celebrity wedding dresses of the 21st century: a custom lace mermaid gown, crafted by her close friend, Givenchy's Ricardo Tisci. In addition to its form-fitting silhouette, the gown featured a sheer lace back with sheer paneling at the waist, long lace sleeves and a train, topped off with a cathedral-length veil. The sophisticated look showed that Kim's style has evolved since her wedding to Kris Humphries, when she wore a strapless, tulle Vera Wang ball gown, which she teamed with a diamond headpiece.

    Gwen Stefani's Wedding Dress

    Gwen Stefani's wedding dress

    There's no doubt that Gwen Stefani donned two of the best celebrity wedding dresses…ever. The singer opted for two Vera Wang designs for her Oklahoma wedding with Blake Shelton: the first, which Stefani wore during the ceremony, was a white silk georgette gown that featured a sweetheart plunging neckline, an open back, fitted bodice and high low hand tumbled tulle skirt. She wore her hair in a simple updo underneath a chapel-length veil, which boasted embroidery of her name, Shelton's name, and the names of Stefani's sons.

    Sarah Jessica Parker's Wedding Dress

    Sarah Jessica Parker didn't want to make a fuss over her wedding, so when she and Matthew Broderick tied the knot on May 19, 1997, she wore a Morgan Le Fay dress she found hanging in one of her favorite stores. The catch? The dress, which featured spaghetti straps and a tiered skirt, was black! The actress thought that wearing a black dress wouldn't attract any attention, but it was the very thing that made the dress one of the most famous celebrity wedding dresses for years to come. While SJP has since said that she regrets wearing a black dress, she's worn several traditional wedding dresses on screen, not to mention the Vera Wang wedding dress she wore to the 2017 Golden Globes.

    Mandy Moore's Wedding Dress

    Actress Mandy Moore embodied the "blushing bride" aesthetic with her light pink wedding dress.

    The best celebrity wedding dresses? How about the best celebrity wedding jumpsuit! Solange Knowles wore not one but two caped wedding ensembles—including a jumpsuit—to her New Orleans wedding to Alan Ferguson on November 16, 2014. For her walk down the aisle, the singer sported an ivory column-style gown with a power cape that swept the floor. She accessorized with gold Jill for Lady Grey bracelets and bright red lipstick. After the ceremony, Solange changed into a Stephane Rolland one-piece, which also boasted a cape, plus a daring neckline.

    Talk about nontraditional wedding dresses. Entrepreneur and style icon Olivia Palermo went full-on Carrie Bradshaw for her wedding to German model Johannes Huebl. What exactly does that mean? The bride wore a flirty, three-piece Carolina Herrera ensemble complete with a cream-colored cashmere sweater, white shorts and a tulle skirt overlay with floral embellishments. Oh, and we can't forget Palermo's final nod to SATC's iconic lead: Carrie's famous cobalt blue Manolo Blahnik heels.

    There's no denying that John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette's 1996 vow-swap was essentially America's own royal wedding of the decade. The highly-anticipated nuptials were incredibly private and intimate, and the couple miraculously eluded paparazzi attention. Given Bessette's status in the New York fashion scene, there was no doubt her wedding dress would be one to remember. She opted for a simple cowl-neck slip dress—a silhouette that would later come to define the 1990s and early 2000s. In keeping with her signature minimal aesthetic, she accessorized with a simple veil and sheer elbow-length gloves.

The New Jersey native opted for an off-the-shoulder Badgley Mischka dress with a beaded fit-and-flare bodice. "I had my daughter, my daughter-in-law, [Gerry's] daughters, and Susan and Kathy with me," Nist told The Knot of her "incredible" dress shopping experience. "Badgley Mischka sent in all of these beautiful gowns, and I was so overwhelmed. So, I said, 'Hey, each one of you pick out your favorite dress [for me to try on].' They were so excited.

    WNBA star Chiney Ogwumike gave The Knot an exclusive look inside her Texas wedding to boxer Raphael Akpejiori. The November 2023 nuptials came as a surprise to Ogwumike's fans, as the athlete didn't even reveal she was engaged until the week of her wedding. The couple had a five-day fusion wedding that celebrated their Nigeran culture, so the bride wore 10 custom looks throughout the festivities. One of her favorites was the first traditional Nigerian wedding look she donned, which was a vibrant shade of blue with red and coral accents. "I was planning this wedding during basketball season and I was like, 'Mom, I need help,'" Ogwumike told us. "She literally drew my dress on computer paper."

Designed by Carolina Herrera, the gown had a round neck, short sleeves and a long bodice embroidered with white shamrocks (a nod to her father's Irish ancestry). The full skirt extended into a sweeping 25-foot train, and on her head, she wore a bow with a long tulle veil.

When she married baseball player Joe DiMaggio in 1954 at San Francisco City Hall, she donned a modest, dark brown pencil dress with a matching jacket. For her final walk down the aisle to marry playwright Arthur Miller in 1956, she wore a light beige, curve-hugging sheath, designed by Norman Norell and John Moore. A pair of white gloves and a chin-length veil attached to a pillbox hat added just enough style to make the look one of the most famous celebrity wedding dresses.
