Amazing Celebrity Wedding Dresses

Wedding fever is everywhere right now, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle less than two weeks away from walking down the aisle.  While we wait with bated breath to see what Meghan’s dress (or dresses) will look like (okay, maybe it’s just me anxiously waiting), enjoy this gallery of some of my favorite celebrity wedding dresses, in no particular order.

Which one is your favorite?

 

Ashley Tisdale
Ashley Tisdale –  Ashley’s dress is sweet, romantic and perfect for an outdoor ceremony.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – The porcelain blue silk coat dress Camilla wore for her blessing ceremony (see her civil dress at the end of this post) is gorgeous and absolutely suited her. The color is flattering, and perfect for a more mature, second-time bride.   The subtle detailing on the overcoat sparkles, much like the bride does. 
Fearne Cotton
Ferne Cotton – The retro look of this 1940s style dress, with tea-length hem, gathered sleeves and decorative neckline, gives any bride sparkle and is a straight up winner.  The shorter length allows footwear to take center stage.
Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly – The ultimate wedding dress. A timeless beauty, like its wearer, this is the dress to which all others should be judged.  Flawless.
Grace Kelly civil
Grace Kelly – Her civil ceremony dress, while not as formal and elaborate as her religious ceremony dress, is just as spot on. The color is chic, as well as the style.
Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani – An untraditional, yet not crazy, dress with a beautiful sweep of color, accented by a delicate veil.
Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Trump – Classic, timeless and top-notch, this lovely dress has an exquisite sheer lace overlay for the bodice, providing splendid detail front and back. 
1E4F71A7
Jennie Garth – The floral overlay of this long, straight lined dress is unexpected and charming, lovely for a spring or summer wedding. The slight train lets it work for an indoor or outdoor event.
Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco – If you love color, a warm, feminine pink instead of the traditional white is a fun alternative to the typical princess dress.  The coordinating pink veil and flowers are an added bonuses.
Kate Middleton
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge – Kate’s wedding dress, perhaps the most anticipated since her late mother-in-law’s, was a perfect choice for her.  Traditional without being too formal or stuffy, it perfectly encapsulated the more relaxed style of bride and groom – – and the wedding.  Her reception gown, in its ivory hue with brilliantly accented waistline, paired with a coordinating shrug, exemplifies Kate’s tailored and refined style. 
Lauren Conrad
Lauren Conrad – The back of this gown is delicate, feminine and utterly pretty.  The silhouette is striking and overall, it’s a nice change from a strapless dress.
Lydia Hearst
Lydia Hearst – The multi-tiered skirt, in shades of pink, give this dress a lovely pop of color and vibrancy.  The bodice is a fun spin to more retro necklines.
Pippa Middleton
Pippa Middleton – As elegant and classic as her sister Kate’s gown, Pippa is a knockout.  The back of the dress is heavenly.
Princess Charlene of Monaco
Princess Charlene of Monaco – The overall style of the gown is simpler than that of other royal brides but it befits the model-like Charlene.  The neckline and detailing on the skirt are beautiful. 
Princess Claire of Luxembourg
Princess Claire of Luxembourg – The detailing of this sleek dress screams elegance. The majestic tiara is a superb touch.
Princess Margaret
Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon – Margaret’s dress was designed by Norman Hartnell, who also designed her sister Elizabeth’s dress – – but without the embroidery. The simple yet grand style suited the petite bride and her fashionable and fun nature, as well as starting a new trend in wedding attire. 
Princess Maxima of the Netherlands
Princess Maxima of the Netherlands – Regal, regal, regal from the unadorned bodice to the exquisite skirt. The delicate veil and beautiful tiara complete the look.  Other than Grace Kelly’s iconic gown, this may be my absolute favorite.
Princess-Sofia-Sweden-Wedding-Dress
Princess Sofia of Sweden – Just gorgeous.  The sleeves, the bodice, the train, the tiara, the flowers. Everything. 
Sarah Ferguson
Sarah, Duchess of York – While a few aspects of her dress may be somewhat dated (80s bows and shoulder pads, anyone?) the charming gown flattered Sarah.  Having her groom’s initial intertwined with her own on the train, along with anchors to symbolize Andrew’s Navy career, is a sweet and unique touch.
shannen doherty
Shannen Doherty – The deep red sash, along with the feathered skirt, makes this dress as unconventional, and yet beautiful, as the bride 

 

 

 

Camilla Duchess of Cornwall civil
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – This knee-length white dress, with a matching overcoat, is modest yet emminently bridal. Worn for the civil ceremony, it’s just right for the Duchess. The hat, rather than an expected veil, is downright amazing. 

 

 

 

Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling – The bodice and cap sleeves of this dress are a winner. The lack of a train only emphasizes the elegance and the short veil is perfect.
