List of Top 10 Most Beautiful Celebrity Brides of All Time until 2017
10) Jacqueline Bouvier
Though she was a just a photographer and he a first time Senator from Massachusetts, the 1953 Bouvier/Kennedy wedding was still a memorable one. It was the debutante wedding of the year; even Life Magazine ran a three page spread on it. Jacqueline’s gown was designed by Anne Cole Lowe. The dress itself was created with fifty yards of ivory silk taffeta. With a wide bouffant skirt adorned with wax flowers and a portrait neckline, this ball gown was much more than what Jacqueline had wanted for her wedding. She almost didn’t get to wear it; a pipe had burst where her and eleven bridesmaids’ dresses were stored. Lowe had to work for almost ten days straight to recreate all the dresses in time for the wedding.
9) Marilyn Monroe
Before she was known as Marilyn Monroe, Norma Jean was married to Jim Doughtery in 1946. Being that she was sixteen at the time, she had the traditional a-line bodice with sheer sleeves and a high neckline. During her elopement with baseball great, Joe DiMaggio, in 1954, Marilyn chose a dark brown suit with a white fur collar. Her final wedding was to playwright Arthur Miller in 1956. Her dress was a white mid-length sheath with an empire waist that perfectly accentuated all of Marilyn’s iconic curves. Whether she wore traditional, contemporary, or sexy and demure, Marilyn Monroe was a beautiful bride.
8) Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman bought her wedding dress seven years before she married Tom Cruise. She had stated that she purchased the simple ivory fitted wedding gown at the age of sixteen when she was on vacation with her parents in Amsterdam, Holland. She said the dress had cursed her marriage because she bought it before she even had a groom. Learning from her mistake, Nicole took careful consideration when selecting her wedding dress for her marriage to country star and fellow Aussie, Keith Urban. She had worn a traditional ivory, silk chiffon dress with a long veil designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere from Balenciaga.
7) Audrey Hepburn
There is no doubt that Audrey Hepburn was and still is a fashion icon. Her three wedding gowns were just as stunning. Though her first wedding had been called off, Audrey’s dress was already made by the Fontana sisters. It was a mid length silk dress that Audrey asked the sisters to donate to the poorest bride in Italy. The first dress worn down the aisle was Pierre Balmain’s tea-length flared dress in 1954. The ballgown sleeves, satin sash and high neck created an elegant fairy-tale quality to the gown. The last dress was worn in 1969. It was a pale ballet pink minidress designed by Hubert de Givenchy. Audrey paired it with white tights and ballet flats along with a matching headscarf.
6) Grace Kelly
From Oscar winner to Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly was a classic beauty. Her dress was designed by Helen Rose who was the wardrobe designer at MGM at the time. Though, the dress itself was a gift from the studio, she still had to pay a price in order to get out of her seven year contract with MGM. She had agreed to allow the studio to film her wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco. The gown was created from antique Valenciennes rose point lace. Over twenty-five yards of silt taffeta and ninety-eight yards of tulle were used. Her veil itself was adorned with appliquéd lace lovebirds and thousand of seed pearls.
5) Amal Alamuddin
The human rights lawyer and legal adviser to kings, Amal Alamuddin, became even more famous when spotted with Oscar winner and one of People’s sexiest man alive winners, George Clooney. The two wed on September 27th, 2014 in Venice Italy, where they met. Amal has always been a fashionista so it was no surprise that her wedding gown was a custom made Oscar de la Renta. It was a traditional French-laced gown with a full train and off-the-shoulder neckline. The dress was hand-embroidered with pearls and diamante stones. Oscar de la Renta personally showed up for every fitting to make the dress just right. She is one of the Top 10 Most Beautiful Celebrity Brides of All Time until 2017.

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most funniest and outgoing female comediennes of our time. So, when she married Scandal star, Portia de Rossi on August 16th, 2008, many were surprised that the ceremony was small, quaint and quiet. The ceremony took place in their home in Los Angeles with only nineteen of their closest friends and family as guests. The two both wore Zac Posen, who custom-made each design. Portia wore a blush full tulle skirt with an ivory halter neckline. In traditional form, Ellen wore white tailored pants, and a vest. They both wore slippers that said ‘I Do.’ Their wedding set a precedent for non-traditional and intimate celebrity weddings.
