9 Famous Women Whose Wedding Dresses Attracted More Attention Than the Wedding Itself

Celebrities pay a lot of attention to their appearance at red carpet events. Of course, weddings are even more important because any girl wants to memorize this special day and find the right dress. Famous brides are willing to do anything to outshine everyone else.

We at Bright Side decided to remember famous brides that looked absolutely stunning on their wedding days. And their dresses deserve to be looked at closely.

Elizabeth Taylor, 1959

The fourth wedding of Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most scandalous in Hollywood. Some people believed that she married her friend’s husband. This might be the reason why the actress decided not to wear a traditional white dress and put on a green silk dress with a hood and long sleeves instead.

Priscilla Presley, 1967

The wedding dress of Priscilla Presley looked royal-like. The white dress was decorated with pearls and accompanied by a tiara with rhinestones and a big tulle veil.

There were rumors that Priscilla made the dress herself, but she said that she’d bought it hastily in a department store.

Pippa Middleton, 2017

Pippa Middleton got married in 2017. There were a lot of guests at the ceremony, but the bride outshone all of them thanks to her dress with a high collar and short sleeves.

British designer Giles Deacon said that in order to create the illusion of a seamless cut, they had to sew silk lace to the dress by hand. The bra was decorated with pearl embroidery, and the multilayered dress from organza and tulle made it easy for the bride to walk.

Solange Knowles, 2014

Solange Knowles also wanted to wear something that wouldn’t limit her in any way at her 2014 wedding. She wore such a comfortable, stylish, and elegant suit that she even rode a bicycle.

Hilary Swank, 2018

The wedding of Hilary Swank and businessman Philip Schneider took place in Santa Lucia in California in 2018. The actress chose an Elie Saab dress for the celebration. It took around 150 hours to create the dress. The gown was composed of 25 meters of lace, 8 meters of silk chiffon, and 6 meters of organza silk.

Swank admitted that she wanted to wear a romantic dress “that felt as timeless as the redwood grove where we were to be married.” The result exceeded her expectations.

Sharon Tate, 1968

Actress Sharon Tate married movie director Roman Polanski in London in 1968. The bride designed her yellow taffeta high-neck mini dress. She managed to create a look that combined Hollywood glamour with swinging London (a cultural event of the second half of the 1960s where something new and modern was really valuable). Tate decorated her hair with flowers and wore graphic eyeliner.

Ashlee Simpson, 2013

In 2013, Ashlee Simpson was a perfect boho-style bride. She wore a lace dress consisting of 2 parts: a crop top with 3/4 sleeves and embroidered pearl decorations and a long, lace skirt. She completed the look with a long, silk, tulle veil with lace edges and a headband with beads.

Rose Leslie, 2018

Game of Thrones colleagues Kit Harington and Rose Leslie got married in Scotland in 2018. Leslie’s wedding dress was amazing. It was floor-length with long sleeves, with a belt and embroidered lace flowers that looked regal.

With her flame-like hair, flowery crown, and huge veil, she looked radiant and elegant. Her look was 100% fitting for the location — the ceremony took place in an ancient Scottish castle.

Gwen Stefani, 2021

In 2021, Gwen Stefani married Blake Shelton on his ranch in Oklahoma. She wore a Vera Wang dress. The designer called her stunning multilayered dress without straps and tulle “a modern minimalist construction.”
