Con­sider these 8 celebrity wed­ding dresses for in­spi­ra­tion

Celebri­ties are known to go all out on spe­cial events, their own wed­dings most es­pe­cially. Lav­ish set-ups, A-list guests and of course, a breath­tak­ing gown to wear dur­ing the ac­tual cer­e­monies. Since not all of us can af­ford the ex­act same wed­ding dress with a hefty six-fig­ure price tag, let’s take in­spi­ra­tion from them in­stead. Check out these fa­mous celebri­ties and their beau­ti­ful wed­ding dresses.


The Duchess of Sus­sex chose to keep her wed­ding dress clas­sic and sim­ple. The Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy cre­ation fea­tures a boat neck, quar­ter sleeves and a long, flow­ing train. The five me­ter-long veil was adorned with flo­ral hand-em­broi­dery. To add a lit­tle sparkle to her rather min­i­mal­ist gown, Markle wore a di­a­mond and plat­inum tiara lent to her by the Queen her­self.


A des­ti­na­tion wed­ding (in Paris, no less) at­tended by many fa­mous friends, the KhoBelo nup­tials was a star-stud­ded event for sure. But the real star was the bride, of course. Belo tied the knot with Hay­den Kho in a blush off-shoul­der gown by Michael Cinco, made of French lace with silk thread baroque em­broi­dery with French pail­lette, pearls and rose opal Swarovski crys­tals.


Knowles’ sar­to­rial choices have al­ways been bold and strik­ing and she did not dis­ap­point on her wed­ding day. The ivory Hum­berto Leon for Kenzo col­umn-style dress had no em­bel­lish­ments but with the long dra­matic cape at­tached, stacked gold bracelets, bold red lip and of course, her gor­geous afro—she was a mag­nif­i­cent vi­sion.


Magalona made sure to stay true to her rocker roots with an un­con­ven­tional en­sem­ble for her wed­ding day: a pale pink gown by Sassa Jimenez with a tiered tulle skirt and a silk bodice with rhine­stones run­ning along the waist and corset. Although cov­ered by her skirt, her footwear of choice was a pair of YSL booties.


On a reg­u­lar day, Kim would be all about dé­col­letage but when she tied the knot with Kanye West, she looked re­fresh­ing in long sleeves and a high neck­line. But in true Kim K fash­ion, she still looked sul­try in a body-hug­ging white lace gown de­signed by Ric­cardo Tisci for Givenchy with strate­gi­cally placed sheer cutouts that per­fectly high­lighted her tiny waist, natch.


Okay, this wed­ding was fic­tional but it’s def­i­nitely worth men­tion­ing. Lily Cruz, the femme fa­tale lead of TV se­ries Wild­flower, walked down the aisle in a stun­ning black ball gown by Filipino de­signer Val Taguba, with a bodice and skirt made with French lace and en­crusted with Swarovski crys­tals plus a black veil. The show was known for some crazy mo­ments, this was def­i­nitely one of them.


Kerr took in­spi­ra­tion from Grace Kelly’s wed­ding gown and tap­ping Maria Grazia Chi­uri for Dior to de­sign the dress of her dreams for her wed­ding with Evan Spiegel of Snapchat. Con­trary to the looks she’s sashayed in for Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret, her wed­ding gown was ul­tra-con­ser­va­tive and fem­i­nine, very princess-like—long sleeves, a high neck­line and adorned all over with lilies of the val­ley ap­pliqués.


Knight­ley pleas­antly sur­prised ev­ery­one with her un­usual choice of dress for her wed­ding day: a strap­less, knee-length tulle dress in pale pink topped with a cropped bouclé jacket and fin­ished with flats—all cus­tom-made Chanel, de­signed by Karl Lager­feld. And in­stead of a veil, she wore an el­e­gant flower crown.
