Royal weddings are always fascinating – not just because they’re opulent and elegant, but also because they’re the original “celebrity” wedding. Since the beginnings of modern society, royalty has always fascinated with its fairytale-like weddings – and even more, as you will see below, it has inspired the weddings of the other citizens as well.

What are some of the most famous wedding gowns in history and what have they brought to the wedding fashion world? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

  • Queen Victoria. Of all the celebrity wedding dresses out there, this is the one that started it all. This is when the white wedding gown tradition started. While most royals got married in opulent colored wedding dresses, Queen Victoria chose a white one to symbolize purity and modesty – and people liked the idea so much that it survived to the date, more than two centuries after.
  • Rita Hayworth. Everyone knows her as the glamorous, stunning actress of the Hollywood Golden Age, but sometimes, people tend to forget she married into royalty as well. At her wedding with Price Aly Khan, Rita wore a superb periwinkle blue wedding dress and a hat created by none other than Christian Dior. If that’s not inspiring, we don’t know what is!
  • Princess Diana. Princess Di’s wedding dress stunned everyone who saw it. With no less than 10,000 pearls embedded in it and a 25-feet long train, this silk and taffeta masterpiece was designed by David and Emanuel Elizabeth – and even to the date, it still remains in collective memory as a truly gorgeous piece.
